07 Jun Blue Ribbon/Translations.com outstanding spring campaign!
The team had an incredible run this spring with 14 victories, 2 second place finishes and 6 third place finishes. The team showed its depth by winning P12, masters, cat 3 and mountain bike races. Zach Koop won several big races and has earned a spot on the CRCA composite team for the Philly Cycling Classic.
Also of note is Al Blanchard’s off road dominance. Al has won 3 MTB races so far including the insanely demanding Wildcat 100 NUE race. Yes that is a 100 mile mountain bike race!
