Bloomsburg 'Crit

Another successful weekend for the PBR Elite p/b Performance Lab Cycling Team. The team showed up to the Bloomsburg Criterium. Keith Gerber describes the race as, "A nice little Crit in the town park." This race always seams to have a stacked field, especially since it comes on the heels of the Wilmington Grand Prix. A few pros showed up and the who's who of local hammer heads were there. The team tore stuff up from the gun and eventually saw Rich Straub and Keith Gerber escape in a break with the 3 pros and 3 others. The break just about lapped the field thanks to the rest of the team keeping things in control back in the field. The well played team tactics kept the break from getting caught. It came down to a sprint at the end with Straub taking 4th and 6th for Gerber.

A great team effort and a fun race with still more comments on the team being so good!

The team is starting to hit their stride with the training plans for cyclists that they got from their official training sponsor, The Performance Lab powered by Rothman Institute. The team is clearly one of the dominant and active squads in the metro Philadelphia bicycle racing scene. We will be repeating some of the VO2max and Lactate Threshold (Anaerobic Threshold) testing soon. Check back for the results.
