After big race weekends for both riders, Develo Coaching athletes Alexey Vermeulen and Richard Rainville took wins at the Grand Rapids Bicycle Company and the Quad Cities Criterium, respectively.
After a double-race day on Saturday that included the Pro/1/2 Tour de Frankenmuth and Fort4Fitness Twilight Criterium races, Alexey recovered from his efforts well posting the fastest time of the day and winning the cat. 1/2 in the 14.8 mile event with a time of 32:08.
A time zone away, Richard wrapped up the Memorial Day Weekend races in Iowa/Illinois in style. After a solide ride at Snake Alley, then bad luck at the Melon City Criterium, Richard ventured on a long solo breakaway in the Junior 15-18 race and held off the field to finish taking the win.
