Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank sprinter Kendall Ryan took the overall victory in the 4-day Gateway Cup in St. Louis last weekend. The 4-race event is part of the national level Pro Road Tour.
In the four criteriums, Kendall finished 3rd, 5th, 1st and 4th respectively. It was an impressive achievement for Kendall riding alone against the top ranked teams in the country that fielded larger squads.
Kendall said after the event : "Our team is currently racing in Europe, so I was solo with no teammates. My strategy was very limited. I had to watch all the moves, follow them up but ensure I didn't go too far into the red. From the start the Omnium was my target and I am really happy to have taken that and the win in the 3rd race the Giro della Montagna."
