Roth Wins in Texas
Ryan Roth started his season with a bang by winning the Omloop Whatever Lake Is In Flemish? in Canyon Lake, Texas on Saturday the 29th.
GearsRacing.com forwarded us this note from Texas
"I got the teams first win of the year in the first Texas Cup race, the Omloop Whatever Lake Is In Flemish circuit race. I won a field sprint of about 60 riders or so in the 1hr event. I also started the Green Valley Grand Prix the next day, but after bridging to the winning break I flatted with no wheel service and ended up back in the bunch before the bolt that holds the saddle to post came loose and I pulled out."
Ryan is off to Arizona for more training and early season racing.
