Serghei Tvetcov and his Jelly Belly p/b Kenda teammates put together six stellar days of racing to earn Tvetcov the overall victory at the Cascade Cycling Classic in Bend, Ore.
Tvetcov, who won two stages and placed third in another, called the win the biggest of his career.
“It was a great win for me and the Jelly Belly p/b Kenda team. I thank all my teammates and sponsors. We’re ready to do it again in Utah and Colorad,” he said.
Tvetcov was backed by teammates Freddie Rodriguez, Emerson Oronte, Alex Hagman, Ian Burnett, Ricardo Van der Velde, Nic Hamilton and Morgan Schmitt.
“It was an outstanding performance by the whole team,” said team director Danny Van Haute. “It was a long time coming for this organization to win the GC at an NRC race. I’m very excited for the future.”
