New Jersey USGP

Four Planet Bike riders headed to New Jersey for the third weekend of USGP racing. Plenty of rain on Friday created wet ground that was soon churned into grass filled peanut butter like mud. This caused a few sections of the course to be unrideable. Bike changes were key as the drivetrain and tires were quickly bogged down with the grassy mud.

Day 2 brought sunny skies and warmer temperatures and thick, soft, tacky mud. Solid finishes again by all the Planet Bike riders with Kaitie racing especially well and grabbing the final UCI point in a talented field of riders.
