USGP #1 & 2, Louisville, KY
TEAM CLIF BAR's Troy Wells and Brady Kappius put the team on the national radar this past weekend in Louisville, KY, at the first stop in the Crank Brothers' USGP of Cyclo-Cross Series.
On Saturday, Troy had perhaps his finest race as a Pro, finishing 4th, and Brady posted a 3rd place in the Under-23 competition (19th overall).
Sunday saw Troy go for broke driving the lead group early in the race, but he eventually faded to a 9th place finish. Brady stepped it up a notch and grabbed 2nd in the Under-23 field, and took over the USGP Leader's Jersey. CLIF BAR riders have now held the USGP Leader's Jersey every year since 2004.
