Ross Double Trouble at Tour de Husker Criterium
Lincoln, NE — The cold conditions for the criterium didn’t hold back Jordan Ross and his teammates with Team Kaos. Ross took his second win in as many days in the M123 at the Tour de Husker Critierium, Sunday morning at Pioneers Park in Lincoln. Team Kaos launched a number of attacks to take control of the race and another near sweep of the podium.
At the end of the second lap in the M123, Ross attacked followed by Jeremiah Grell (Lincoln Industries), reeling in the move by Ross.
Ross launched a second attack right away coming over the top of the climb to the finish. Ryan Legg (Lincoln Industries) took on the attack and shut it down.
Kaos maintaining control sent Lee Bumgarner off on another attack on the way to the roundabout. With not much help from the peloton, Lincoln Industries Cycling went ondefense with Ryan Legg leading the chase.
After Bumgarner attack was shut down, Ross attacked a third time on the hill before the start/finish area. Saturday’s fourth place road race finisher, Jonathan Frey (Lincoln Industries) jumped the gap
Setting up the final break, Team Kaos riders John Rokke, Chris Spence, Ross and Frey pulled clear of the field. Ross powered away the last time up hill leading to the finish for the win with Rokke second, Frey third and Spence holding on to fourth.
In the M4 race Michael Dixon (Team Kaos) attacked early forcing Greenstreet teammates David Randleman and Glenn Houtchens to chase. Greenstreet chasing set the stage for a second move from Rich Anderson and Greg Hagele of Team Kaos. Both riders were able to bridge up to Dixon. Hagele went on to solo for the win. Dixon and Anderson worked together for second and third for the Kaos sweep of the podium.
Tony Kavan (Elkhorn Valley) won the field sprint up the hill to the finish line to win the M5 race. Josh Rice was second and Saturday’s winner of the road race Joe Eickhoff (Greenstreet) placed third.
