It was a hard fought weekend in Brookhaven, MS. But, as usual, it was a great event which is the reason we bring our athletes, teams, and ourselves back there every year for this awesome stage race. Big thanks to Palmer Cycling for organizing and keeping this event alive for so long.
Here is some footage from the Friday night crit that took place in downtown Brookhaven. This race is always blazing fast and this year was no different with an average speed of over 27 mph. After several attempts, it was obvious the powers that be wanted it to stay together and on the final lap Michael McBrien from LaSport Elite popped off a big sprint to take the win.
When it was all said and done, Coach Bryant was 2nd overall in the GC, and his team, including Coach Dale, Coach Ben and BPC athletes Scott Newberry, Bryan Thames, and Peter Reed, had worked themselves to the bone to keep him there.
Crit – Coach Bryant 7th, Coach Dale 8th
Road Race – Coach Bryant 2nd, Peter Reed 9th
TT – Coach Funston 2nd, Scott Newberry 3rd, Peter Reed 8th
