Spring and summer races were few and far between, however, the fall cycling and triathlon scene has made a small comeback. Though primarily overseas, and in the professional ranks, races have resumed and we couldn't let the opportunity pass without shining much deserved light on the athletes that have gotten back to doing what they do best — and have added much needed entertainment and inspiration during this unusual year.
The Team Tibco squad has been racing with regularity since the pro cycling resumed. Last week Lauren Stephens and Kristen Faulkner placed 10th and 11th at De Brabantse Pijl and the team followed up earlier this week with a stellar effort to place Lauren in position for a 6th place finish at the one-day classic Gent-Wevelgem. Next up for the team is Tour of Flanders.
Tom Bohli has been busy on the road and cobbles as well. He recently raced the BinckBank Tour followed by Gent-Wevelgem. Next up for Tom is Tour of Flanders.
While the Ironman triathlon schedule has been largely cancelled for the year, Veo athlete Ben Deal had the opportunity to race Ironman 70.3 Cancun last month and finished 12th in a competitive pro field.
Liza Rachetto, DNA Pro Cyclist and age-group Ironman winner, hasn't allowed this year's circumstances to slow her down. She's created several of her own gravel and road cycling adventures and participates in virtual events as she continues training and supporting others through her coaching program.
Team Novo Nordisk rider Sam Brand finished off his season this week with De Brabantse Pijl and Paris-Tours.
