Rob Britton (CAN) of SmartStop Pro Cycling took the overall GC victory at the UCI 2.2 Tour of the Gila. Britton had a blistering Stage 2 individual time-trial that moved him into 2nd place overall and into position to capture the GC win on stage 5.
“It hasn’t sunk in. I still keep finding the jersey in my suitcase and I can’t believe it. I think this will be something I look back on in a few weeks after the Tour of California and I will still have a massive smile on my face.” Winning the Tour of the Gila will bring confidence to the team who are about to race their first ever Amgen Tour of California. Our congratulations to Rob and Team SmartStop!
