CHICAGO, IL. (USA) In what is the best way to start the 2016 season the heavily favored Texas Roadhouse Cycling Team pulled off a photo finish sprint win at the First Annual Cardinal Criterium at Long Run Park in Louisville, KY. After rain showers passed through the Louisville, KY area mid-day Saturday, March 13th it quickly became the hottest day of 2016. With the sun out and temps reaching 73º a hot and hard fight began at the sound of the start gun. But with a large contingent of Texas Roadhouse riders in the field many thought controlling the field would be the key to victory. The question was who, on the team, would be the one to contend for the number one spot. In the end, it was new team member Brice Brookshire (25), Indianapolis, IN who took advantage of a two-man breakaway late in the race to sprint for the win. However, It was not easy for Brice. When he started his sprint the chain jumped a ring in the front. Brice quickly recovered and dug deep for every watt he could muster. The final pedal strokes to the uphill drag race finish proved to be just what the second year med school students needed to take the win by a whisker. And with that, the season is underway!

More than 50 bicycles and parts worth up to $200,000 were stolen from a Pompano Beach business and the owner says the burglars knew what they were doing.
“They are obviously people who knew our facility in and out,” said Tom Stradalli, owner of Stradalli Cycle.
“They picked all the high-end bikes,” he said. “They only picked the ones with carbon fiber, they only picked the newest models, they only picked the lightweight bikes.”
The break-in happened about 11 p.m. Sunday in the warehouse store at 1405 SW 10th Ave., he said.
There were no surveillance cameras inside the 17,000 square-foot building, but a security camera from a neighboring business recorded the burglars loading the expensive bicycles into a truck outside, he said.
“The alarm went off, the police came instantly,” Stradalli said. “The Broward Sheriff’s Office came with the fingerprint people and the canines.”
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Joy Oglesby said deputies who were called to the scene estimated nearly $189,000 worth of property was taken.
Stradalli thinks the burglars had been to the business previously because they knew exactly which bikes to take, focusing mainly on Dura Ace, Dura Ace electronics DI2 and those with carbon wheels, he said.
“They didn’t take the $100 wheels or the $200 wheels. They took $1,500 wheel sets,” he said. “An $1,800 bike they would leave and a $5,000 one they would take.”
Those responsible for the theft did leave behind a bar that was used to pry open a back door. Investigators recovered it and were examining it for evidence, Stradalli said.
