SugarCRM capitalized on a solid month of attacking racing by finally delivering back to back wins at the Velopromo Madera Stage Race Criterium and Road Race.
The small contingent of SugarCRM riders including Kim Fong, Erin Dunne, Mary Ellen Ash, Liza Rachetto and Lindsay Myers were using the weekend as a final tune up for the San Dimas Stage Race and Redlands Classic NRC, and weren't afraid to put the power down where it mattered most- in the finale.
In the opening Criterium, all of the team riders were active in various moves without being as overtly aggressive as they had at the Menlo Park GP. This paid dividends when in the last three laps, the combined horsepower of Team TIBCO and Touchstone could not hold off a charging Linday Myers who delivered Liza Rachetto to the line in fine fashion. First Pro 1/2 win of the year for Liza, 2nd win for SugarCRM.
In the TT the riders were able to test their positioning and power, with Lindsay picking up 8th place.
The road race was a tough affair, with several teams intent on the field being kept together for a field sprint. After 68 miles on rough, windy and undulating roads Liza Rachetto capitalised on the TIBCO leadout and recorded her second victory in as many days, with Lindsay finishing 4th. With 3 wins so far this season, SugarCRM is now the winningest Pro1/2 team on the West Coast USA.
