Cody McCullough launched his finishing sprint away from the combined 30+/40+ field with two corners to go and rocketed to a comfortable victory salute in the Masters 40+ Iowa State Criterium Championship on Saturday, July 7th at Clear Lake. Steve Robinson (Zealous) was the 30+ champion. The race was part of the Bicycle Blues and BBQ Omnium which has grown into one of the most popular race weekends on the Iowa racing calendar. Bob Greigg was 14th and Todd Juhlin 15th in the 40+ field.

Bill Feiges finished 4th in the Masters 50+ championship. Casey Swenson finished 22nd in the Cat 4 race.

Ealier in the day, Cody recorded 4th place in the Eddy Merckx-style 7-mile time trial in the 40+ line up. Casey was 11th in the Cat 4 test.

On Saturday, Cody would once again claim the victory in the 40+ age group road race. The 47-mile contest was aggressive for much of the single long lap until becoming negative at times in the final headwind miles. Along the way, Bob worked to neutralize attacks, took long pulls and then made a lone breakaway bid in the closing miles that worked to make the field chase him down. Entering the final kilometer, he went to the front and led out the field for as long as possible before sitting up. Despite being briefly boxed in and having to check up, Cody found an opening and sprinted to another clear win. Bob rolled in 14th.

Bill finished 8th in the 50+ race. Todd Juhlin came in 26th in the Cat 3s. Casey was 11th in the Cat 4 bunch sprint.

For the 3rd race in a row, SC Velo again came out on top of the 'A' race at the Spoke-n-Sport criterium series in Sioux Falls, SD on Thursday, July 12th. After early efforts to start the party by Bill, Bob and Casey that served to split the field into three groups, Jeff Kluck and Cody would seperate themselves from the lead group to finish 1st and 2nd, respectively. Bill was 8th, Bob 9th and Casey, 12th. Jeff won the June race as well and Cody won the first race of the series in May.

On July 21st, Bob finished 3rd and Jeff 4th in the iGranFondo. The 103-mile race started in Sioux City and finished in Sioux Center (race recap soon).

Casey Swenson was in Wisconsin during Superweek and had time to race the Whitefish Bay Classic criterium on July 22nd. He finished a fine 4th in the Cat 4 race.

Casey did the road race in Hutchinson, MN on July 29th and finished on the podium this time with a 2nd place out of the Cat 4 field sprint.
