Proving that they are more than just a fledgling regional team, SugarCRM placed three riders in 5th (Liza), 9th (Starla) and 11th (Karla) at this weekends Dana Point Grand Prix, which was an NRC (National Road Circuit) event. With all of the top Professional teams sending squads to this SoCal race, the pace was furious from the outset. With only one threatening breakaway gaining advantage at the halfway mark and including a SugarCRM rider, things were looking good for the squad in Red.
However with a serious crash at the halfway point the race was stopped and restarted, setting it up for a bunch sprint.
In the kick Nikki Butterfield and Gina Grain scored a one-two for the dominant Webcor Builders squad, but Liza Rachetto and Starla Teddergreen were hot on their heels to finish in the top ten for SugarCRM. For the Velonews race report, click here.
