RallySport Cycling Team won the 2015 50+ Team Time Trail National Championship held in Greenville SC on Sunday April 19, 2015. The four man team consisted of Todd Cassan, John Mansell, Gary Sharp of Boulder and Michael Williams a guest rider from the Rio Grande Team out of Fort Collins.
The RallySport Team was the first Master’s team on the course for the day and set the high mark for others to beat with a 43:06 in heavy sheets of rain. By the end of the day they had trumped their second place rivals by 36 seconds over a 20 mile course. “ The conditions were horrendous, there was so much water falling from the sky and spraying off the wheel in front of you, it was like riding blind”, said Mansell. The team had not competed together before the Championships but had dedicated their training over the last several months to hone the skills needed to be smooth and aerodynamic.
“We had great coaching and lots of motivation, it takes more than just four strong guys to win an event like this, it takes a team effort with full support to pull it off’’ Sharp stated.
The RallySport Cycling Team is a Master’s team based out of Boulder sponsored by the RallySport Health Club. They consist of approximately 30 riders with a focus on road and cyclocross racing in Colorado and Nationwide.
