US Team Keeps Yellow Jersey-Wins Stage Race

Did I fail to mention that the US Team won the Stage race in Switzerland. It was the most difficult races I have ever witnessed. Four days full of high climbs, long miles, switchbacks, and tough competition. Nathan Brown won the Yellow Jersey on the Prologue (time trial) so you know what that means, we spend the next 3 stages defending it. Connor was a huge part of that. The 3rd Stage had an incredibly high climb with switchbacks and narrow, steep streets..miles and miles of uphill. No photo would do this justice either, but I'll post one. Connor pulled Nathan to the top and then, as is customary, steps aside so the yellow can take the win. Connor is a team player in every sense of the word. Loyal, strong and willing to step back while the other guy takes the credit. I love that kind of man! Love you boy! Love your guts, heart and mind too. Get rested up for the next race on Thursday!


  1. I love the pic of Connor in the turn, the focus and determination on his face!
