13. Intelligentsia Cup Highlight Show 2022
Did you catch race number seven, the Lake Bluff Criterium? Spoiler alert: it's rad. So many big rides: Brandon Feehery of Project Echelon Racing grabbed points in ALL the sprints (1st, 1st, 2nd) and a fourth place overall to stretch out his lead in both jersey competitions. His form and focus right now are fantastic. Clever Martinez of the Miami Blazer is turning it up as the summer goes along, and Clever came in third overall, jumping over Thomas Gibbonsfor third in the series. Clever has had a fantastic Intelli cup, and next week, with Alfredo Rodriquezstill sidelined, we'll see the top three shift even more. Alfredo is due back by IU Health Momentum Indy, so we'll see our podium come down to the wire.
And how about Andrea Cyr of ButcherBox Racing? She had one job, and she nailed it. She won all the in-race sprints and took eight overall for 98 points total. With three races left, she is not only cementing her second place, but Maggie Coles-Lyster of DNA Pro Cycling is within reach: overall and for the Green sprinter's jersey. The Green is a two-woman race right now. So close.
What else is close? The Women's team competition. Anna Christian of Colavita-Factor is crushing the U23 competition, and she and her Colavita-Factor ladies are just one point off from DNA. One point!
Littleton Twilight will be a must-watch as these riders and competitions continue to come down to the wire.
