    https://www.clippedin.bike/uci-teams-ready-for-epic-battle-at-this-years-tour-of-the-gila-2019/

    Competing teams:

    Wildlife Generation p/b Maxxis
    ProTouch Continental Pro Cycling (South Africa)
    Elevate KHS Pro Cycling
    Floyd’s Pro Cycling (Canada)
    303 Project
    Aevolo
    DCBank Pro Cycling Team (Canada)
    Team Medellin (Colombia)
    Canel’s Specialized (Mexico)

    Project Echelon Racing
    VeloSelect Racing Team (Quebec)
    Semper Porro
    Otto Jacome Cycling Team (Mexico)
    Team California
    Rio Grande Elite Cycling Team
    Gateway Devo Cycling
    Pacific Premier Bank Cycling
    Team Mike’s Bikes p/b Equator
    Support Clean Sport / BSCG / Guttenplan Coaching

    Despite the fact the race has moved to two weeks later in the calendar ie. back to roughly it's old position of finishing a week before California starts, there is no sign of the local PCT outfits - Rally (defending champions with Britton) and Hagens Berman. Yorkshire is the preferred destination for both teams. Arapahoe are absent as well for whatever reason - the Gran Fondo Hincapie takes precedence?

    Anyway outside of the Men's UCI event there are a few other riders that may be worth watching. In the Men's 1,2 category we have riding for LUX/Sideshow p/b Specialized both Quinn Simmons (1st GW juniors) and Michael Garrison (4th PR juniors and brother of Ian).

    Also, in the women's UCI event should be Sarah Gigante (current Australian national champion) who will be riding for the composite Team HMS. Simone Boilard should give her competition for the best 18 yr old.

    I have to admit lower level US races aren't that interesting to me, but I have to give you points for posting a stage map with my favorite place name of all names

    I didn't say only in America  :D

    No European racing for Medellin so far this year, but they have been racking up the race days (and wins) on the American Tour.

    San Juan: 3rd in GC
    Colombia: 14th in GC
    Independencia: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in GC + two stage wins
    Chiloe: 1st and 3rd in GC + three stage wins
    Uruguay: 1st in GC + one stage win

    If Mitchelton or Jumbo don't fancy one of the remaining spots at Utah then I'd be on the phone to them to see if they want to race (there's no clash with the Vuelta a Colombia this year).

    Weird. "Kicked off its first UCI America Tour race when the Tour of the Gila got under way"? Um, that's not until tomorrow.  :S

    The two man break sat up when they saw the bunch approaching. Larger split now. Possibly due to a crash a bit earlier.

    You don't need me to pick out the names from the big CT teams, but here's some others to watch out for.

    Newkirk - Good TTer and can hang in there on some of the climbs
    Pavlic - Ex-geeeeeeeeeeeek. Being doing quite well actually in some exotic places
    Boardman - Can he show us why he was selected for the US team in California?
    Lockwood - Another good TTer. Winner of Redlands and Valley of the Sun this year
    Gonzalez - 18 year old Puerto Rican. 13th in Independencia.

    It's not all such good news for Medellin. Chalapud broke his collarbone and Paredes climbed off earlier with knee pain.

    Tvetcov and Clarke finished way down for Floyd's. Other targets in mind you'd think.

    They were metaphorically not at the race, but literally not at the race was Quinn Simmons. It was his bete noire Michael Garrison who took the win in their category.

    We're now getting a slew of tweets. Most of which relate to action within that missing hour, including the one above.

    Therefore the situation has moved on a bit.

    https://twitter.com/TouroftheGila/status/1123998892088012801

    Break consists of Greif, Stephens, Hall, Haidet, Cowan and Samuel (again). Zavyalov was chasing.

    I was wondering what the "M:" stood for in the above tweets. Now I see, it's to designate the Men's from the Women's race.

    Some small splits in the sprint producing a few changes in the GC.

    A crash on stage 1 explains the time loss on that day for him.



    Big time for losses for Sevilla's team mates, so Medellin only have the one card left.

    Sam Boardman doing pretty well I have to say. It just goes to show.

    It turns out that there was a live video feed from today's stage after all, but I only became aware of it after-the-fact. Although, it looked like no more than a fixed camera from a building top.

    Anyway, I'm mostly posting these because I'm quite fond of that red, Gila leader's jersey!  :cool

    I knew about, but it's just really a webcam. It's still on at the moment. In fact there's a rather suspicious sports car just idling at the lights....



    Good win for Young. I think he has an eye on the Olympics and track cycling which might explain why he made the move from PCT down to CT.
