As many of you may know LeMond Revolution is a sponsor for the Optum Pro Cycling team. We provide Team Optum with trainers and they use our trainers to win races. For example, over the Memorial Day weekend a number of Team Optum riders were at the USA Cycling Professional Road Championships and happened to do quite well.
On Saturday, May 25 time trial specialist Tom Zirbel became the 2013 US Time Trial Champion scorching the 31km TT course in 38:16.03, 17.28 seconds ahead of second place Brent Bookwalter (BMC). To win, Zirbel averaged nearly 30mph on a technical and rolling out and back course. We feel that having both the professional and collegiate US Time Trail Champions riding and training on Revolution trainers is something we can hang our hat on!
On the women's side of the weekend, Team Optum rider Jade Wilcoxson soloed to victory in Monday's 102km US Pro Women's Road Race. Wilcoxson took the win with an 11 second advantage over teammate Lauren Hall, who took a close sprint for second making it a 1-2 finish for Optum.
LeMond Revolution is proud of Team Optum and their National Champions, Tom and Jade!
