Brad Rodgers scored his first top placing as a Senior rider by sprinting to a 5th place finish at the Black Creek Road Race today. Rodgers good finish comes after some bad luck earlier this year forcing the young gun to DNF. The good finish will certainly be a confidence booster as the bulk of the season is still ahead.
It was also Brad’s first road race with his new Orbea Onix which he certainly praised after the event. All of us at team IMT-TitleOne are very proud of Brad and his great finish today.
Parker and Casella finished behind the lead group in the elite race. Parker’s bad luck continued as he flatted with less than 10 miles to go. Casella recovering from tendonitis that kept him off the bike pretty much since the Hillsdale event was positive about the day “Steve was riding really good all day and flatted at the wrong time, but he’s there, really close as his form is starting to come on. He rode towards the front all day and I was glad to be able to help him along the way. I just am missing the race miles in my legs and hope I’ll be 100% down the road. Brad saved the day for the team and we were proud of him for his awesome finish today.”
