Posted by Integrated Cycling Team in News
After a stellar month of racing and results in June, the team was carrying some serious momentum as they rolled into Wisconsin for the Tour of America’s Dairyland. And the boys did not waste any time throwing down the gauntlet for a week of racing in the Cat 2/3 field as Greg Wittwer soloed for the 1st Place win at the Schlitz Park Criterium with Nick Maimone and Marcos Lazzarotto rounding out the top 10 in 4th Place and 9th Place, respectively.
Greg Wittwer continued his impressive run, just missing the podium in 4th Place after a hot and wind-swept Fond du Lac Road Race. At the Sheboygan Harbor Challenge Marcos Lazzarotto grabbed 4th Place with Nick Maimone in 6th Place, while DS Bill Gros sprinted his way onto the podium in 3rd Place in the Masters 45+ event.

finish. Riding as a freelancer against some large teams, he was able to secure a solid 6th Place
