A hard-fought 5th place in the DII road race...after having spent 16-17 miles off the front, solo, during laps four & five of the seven-lap, 70-mile Richmond, Virginia course.
Oh yeah, and he dropped a solid 8th in the individual time trial two days earlier.
Those of us at home had to follow the action via the @USACcollegiate twitter feed, but were treated to gems like this one:
I was on the edge of my seat.
Here's the report in his own words:
Friday was the ITT and I placed 8th in that which was good. Especially because I was not feeling my best. Yesterday was the RR. 7 laps for 70 miles on the 2015 worlds course. Complete with a cobble descent and a nasty little cobbled climb. I broke away solo with three laps to go hoping that some guys would bridge up to me but after staying away for 16 miles a chase group brought me back and then came the field. Soon after we hit Libby hill (the cobbled climb) again and a group of four guys went off the front. I was in the second group of about 10 guys and rolled with them the rest of the race, which was about a lap now. That group stayed together until the final K when I put in an attack at the top of a small climb. I got away with one other guy and I sprinted him to the line for 5th place.
