Delray Beach Twilight

The race was blistering from the start with attacks. We missed a group of 3 that got up the road in the first two laps. The guys did a perfect chase and pulled the break back about half way through.
After that it was all hands on deck just covering moves. UHC was taking shots and we were there to respond. With 15 to go it was obvious it was going to be a field sprint. The team was keeping Isaac and I safe behind the UHC train, unfortunately we got disconnected with 2laps to go. I managed to slot in at 5th wheel coming into the final 2 turns. The rider in front of me dropped the wheel with 1 turn to go and I just had to step out and try to take a run on Hilton’s wheel. Came up short but the team road amazing! The guys really rode their hearts out! A lot of the guys are new on the team and we’re starting to click.
I think it’s only a matter of time until you see a member of Team SmartStop p/b Mountain Khakis on that top step!
