Kendall Ryan wins Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix
Kendall Ryan followed up her win at the Delta Road Race on Sunday with a win at the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix. The Vancouver race is one of the most historic and prestigious cycling events in North America. "It was a fantastic night for the team” said Director Jeff Pierce: "This is a huge race in Canada that was founded in 1973. The crowds were enormous and the atmosphere was terrific. With only four riders we were outgunned by the larger teams but we went in with a singular focus, to set up Kendall. We had some moments with some crashes but all of the girls got back up and contributed throughout the race. In the end Kendall went with 400 meters to go and won the sprint comfortably. Heather Fischer came in 6th after all of her hard work." The team rode incredibly well tonight " said a very happy Kendall: "Maddie and Jen had been marking moves the entire race and Heather worked her magic at the end again to deliver me to the win!"
