J&R Bicycles/Chase/Box Team Report
for the USA Cycling Championships/Spring Nationals,
Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 16-18, 2014:
The following report comes from J&R/Chase/Box Team Manager Scott Angus:
The J&R/Chase/Box team had a small, but effective squad at the USA Cycling Championships/Spring Nationals this past weekend in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
With Katja and Esja Shriver on the team the past few nationals, Richelle Shriver decided to join the team as well. What an impressive weekend for the Shriver trio – 3 triples and the USA Cycling Championship Title for each to add their resume.
While the ladies were quite impressive, the boys on the team did well also. 7 year-old Ty Beadle had five wins, and a 2nd place in the 8 Boys USAC race. 9 year-old Jack Bakken had two wins and a 2nd place in 9x and a 1st and 2nd place in 9 cruiser. A crash in the 10 boys USAC race was the only downer for the weekend. Ryan Pettigrew had a 1st and two 2nd place finishes for the national, and a 16 Boys USAC gold medal to bring home.
The father-son combination of Josh and Joe Sontag had a great weekend as well. Josh picked up a 1st and 2nd place in 28-35x, and a triple in 26-30 cruiser. Grumpy dad got 2 wins and a 2nd place in 56-60 cruiser.
