Jet Fuel Coffee rider Buck Miller continued his racing campaign with a fine 3rd place at the Jacksonville Twilight Criterium in Florida this evening (Saturday, April 9th). In front of a huge crowd Miller attacked halfway through the 90 minute event and helped form the five man winning break. Miller made sure his trip to lovely Jacksonville was worth the drive by winning some primes during the race.
With over $6,000 up for grabs in the nighttime criterium the race attracted various American UCI Continental teams. The Jet Fuel Coffee three man squad ended the evening with Miller in third, Zach Bell in 10th and Mark Pozniak in 13th. The race was filmed for viewing on the North Florida Comcast network.
On Sunday the riders tackle the second part of the Jacksonville Cycling Classic. The Wachovia Classic Road Race is a 100 mile long event on a 12 mile circuit.

The 1st race in the 2005 Ciociaro Criterium Series was held on Thursday, April 7th, 2005 in Windsor, Ontario. After 3 days of near record temperature, the Southern Ontario weather threw a curve ball and sent the temperature back down into single digits, but the riders had a great season opener. Over 45+ racers showed up for an evening of criterium racing action.
