Max Durtschi, Zack Lowry, Jimmy Hague and Chase Caulkins with coach Greg Stock relax after racing in Boise Sunday morning.

Sun Summit riders race in Boise

Team fares well in junior series

Junior members of the Sun Summit Cycling team competed in the BYRDS Junior Stage Race in Boise, July 24-25.

The series featured a road race Saturday morning, a time trial that night and a criterium around the Statehouse on Sunday.

In the U-14 division, Jimmy Hague won both the time trial and criterium. Hague participated in the Ray Nelson Little League tournament that morning which kept him from riding in the road race and knocked him out of contention for the overall title.

13-year old teammate Max Durtschi collected overall honors. Durtschi won the road race and was runner-up to Hague in the other two events. Sun Summit rider Zack Lowry was second overall, seven minutes and 38 seconds behind Durtschi. 12-year old Chase Caulkins finished in seventh place overall.

Coach Greg Stock remarked, "In the criterium, they raced really, really well as a team. They practiced controlling the pack and did that to the letter. Jimmy pulled Max off the front and Zach slowed down the pack. I am pretty proud of them."

Mikey Matteson was fifth overall in the 15-16 year old division. Two other riders on thesquad, Andrew McKean and Drew Deffe did not race in the series.

Stock said the Sun Summit teams rides together once a week.

"We practice technique and tactics. We talk about what happened and why. They are pretty aware in that way," he said.

Stock added the team will compete in a national competition in Park City in mid-August and the state championships in Boise at the end of August.

"We are focusing on winning state and we are going to Utah to get some experience," he said.
