Elkhorn Valley Cycling claims its first podium at Dakota 5-o in Spearfish, SD thanks to Brad Auen. Auen doggedly looked for an open entry to get into the sold-out race and took home a second place podium in his age group and a fantastic 11th place overall for his efforts!
Elkhorn Valley Cycling had no less than 10 riders in this year’s race, joining a massive contingent of Nebraska/Iowa riders, and the club has made the “5-Oh” one of its highlights of the year.
EVCC and TT1 took home several medals at the final race of the 2012 Psycowpath season. The race was moved from its normal home at Manawa due to the lasting effects of last year’s flooding. Brad Auen, Jerry Hoff, and Whitney Porn each made the podium while the rest of the team turned in fine performances.
