This has been another big weekend for Rome Velo team riders. Rome Velo now has two Georgia State Criterium Championship jerseys thanks to the efforts of Brandon Pruett. Brandon took first place in both the Junior 15-16 category as well as the Men’s Category 3 races.

In the Men’s races, Chris McGee and Matt Stahl took 7th and 19th in the Masters Category as well as taking 8th and 26th in the Category 3 race. Cat 5 development rider, Scott May improved his performance with a strong finish at 31 of 60 riders.

Cartersville Duathlon

In other race news, three Rome Velo team riders participated in the PTS Sports Cartersville Duathalon. Lenae Ahearn taking 2nd Place in her age group. Todd Gould and Chris Wegner also placed well, each taking 5th place in their respective age groups.20120415-120018.jpg

Team Rome Velo was well represented this weekend at the Dalton Grand Prix, presented by Bear Creek Bicycles and Spincycle Sports.

Once again, the women’s team dominated the event with an outstanding effort. In Saturday’s time trial, Locklear, Ahearn and Noyes took positions 2, 3, 4. In Sunday’s road race, Locklear and Ahearn worked as a team to push the pace on the open road. A small group rounded the last corner together and the final sprint put both women on the podium again. Locklear took first and Ahearn took third place.

This was Ahearn’s first open road team event and a stellar result. Locklear has now found herself on the podium in every event of the 2012.
