Fresh from its trip to Iowa where the Elite group of the EMC/Vellum Cycles competed for 4 days, they are now preparing for one of the biggest Criterium in Nothern California.
The team sent 6 of their top riders to compete in one of the challenging criterium in the United States, the Snake Alley Criterium, dubbed as the “Crookedest Street in the World” with an average gradient of 12.5% with 5 switch backs.
“EMC/Vellum’s 07 squad intends to improve on last years successful trip to Iowa,”
Ron Castia, president of the Team EMC/Vellum Cycles.
The team’s trip to Iowa last Memorial Day weekend served as the warm up for the sponsored criterium where all of the riders will be competing.
This year’s criterium is scheduled on Sunday, June 3rd, 2007 in Pleasanton, California where EMC/Vellum Cycles is based.
