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!
