Miller Wins in Texas
The Jet Fuel Coffee team finished off their stay in Texas with a strong showing at the Coldspring Road Race (Houston) . The team finished 1st, 3rd and 8th.
Buck Miller added another win to his Texas race resume by outsprinting his breakaway companion to win the 120km event. Miller had attacked his 12 man breakaway group with about 10km. Mark Pozniak lead out Zach Bell in the breakaway bunch sprint and Bell recorded his first podium appearance for the team. Mark ended up in 8th.
