North Star Grand Prix | Stage 4 | Uptown Criterium

The Orange & Black were on point at the North Star Grand Prix Uptown Criterium sending Ryan Anderson to a stage victory, the team’s first in the stage. Jesse Anthony wasn’t far behind finishing 3rd after providing the perfect leadout to Anderson. An early five-man break in the race threatened to stay away after gaining almost 30 seconds on the peloton but Optum p/b KBS’ horsepower couldn’t be contained. The break was caught in the final lap after a tremendous effort from Will Routley, Tom Zirbel, and Scott Zwizanski. The team’s leadout lined up going into the final two turns which set Jesse and Ryan up for the final km and sprint. Ryan pulled out the win after a perfectly timed bike throw at the line with Jesse close behind.
