Rock N' Road CX Team Roundup

Gritters Brothers take the whole shot at "cross into 2013"

What a season for the Elite Rock N' Road CX Team!  

This year's cyclocross season was showered with excitement!  The Elite Rock N' Road CX Team experienced mechanicals, crashes, actual rain and mud, close calls at the finish line (see PB Creative's write up on Velocity Cross) and extremely competitive UCI races.  How did they handle it?  Well, they handled it in style!  Brandon "Big Red" Gritters won the Men's A (Pro) So Cal Prestige Series of Cyclocross Championship!  He has been hunting this title for a while and it all came together this year. "It all worked out.  It wad a good year; by far my best cyclocross season" stated Brandon, and added "but I'm tired, and today was the hardest race of the series.  I was just hanging on for this last race. There was no faking it on this course today.”  His brother, Kyle Gritters, took 5th in that same category.  Way to go Gritters brothers!

This year, the Elite RNR CX Team was blessed with yet another brother duo, the Stephenson brothers.  Brad and Todd Stephenson handled this years action in the same fashion as the Gritters'- they ended it in style.  Todd ended the season by taking second in Men's A 35+ So Cal Prestige Series of Cyclocross while Brad finish 3rd in Men's A 45+.

Great job Elite Rock N' Road CX Team!

A special thanks to PB Creative for the great shot of the Gritters Brothers and the quote from Brandon.
