By March 4, 2015racing

A group of 32 Pen Velo Racing/Summit Bicycles racers along with Coach Clark Natwick headed up to Chico on February 27 to tackle their first team “A” race of the season, the 2015 Chico Stage Race p/b Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. It was a great weekend of racing and team bonding as we fielded teams in four divisions and came away with a couple of wins, a few podiums and several top ten results for our riders in individual stages as well as GC. Highlights of the weekend included our 35+ 3/4 team taking four of the top ten places in the Paskenta Hills Road Race, Menko Johnson celebrating his birthday in style with a podium placing in the 35+ 3/4 criterium, and Nate McKitterick taking revenge for some bad luck in the Day 1 road race in the 45+ 4/5 division by winning both the criterium and the time trial on Day 2! Here’s a list of all of our top 10 results for the weekend:

Road Race
35+ 3/4: Justing Eatinger (2nd), Ross Tinline (3rd), Menko Johnson (4th), Donald Lee (7th)
45+ 4/5: Lanier Benkard (4th)
