The men and women of Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies finished the 2015 season together at the UCI World Championship Team Time Trial, fitting punctuation to the Orange & Black’s most productive season in team history.
The men’s team conducted a final training session on the Worlds course. Each team is granted one full ride of the course on closed roads the day before the race, but before that, things get a bit more guerrilla, as in parking the team Acura and van in a ditch and dodging traffic and other TTT squads on the open roads.
Mike Woods cemented the red Best Canadian Rider jersey (likely tinted brown after six days of often wet, frigid racing) at the Tour of Alberta after a final circuit race in downtown Edmonton. The Ottawa, Ontario native won the classification, which became a climber’s contest after two days in Jasper National Forest on the steep slopes of the Colorado Rockies, where temperatures plummeted near the freezing mark.
