    “This was a breakthrough weekend for me with double wins,” Olds said. “The final turn was 180 degrees on a descent. I knew I needed to jump before the last corner, that’s how I won the bunch sprint last year, but it was luck too. I had a broken shifter yesterday from the crash, and I didn’t know if I could race up that hill today. SRAM took care of me and fixed everything up before the race.”

    Olds start the race only eight points behind American legend Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom). In order to win the overall she not only needed to win the last race but Van Gilder needed to place outside of the top three. The odds of Van Gilder not sprinting within the top three were slim to none – but it happened, and Olds won the Tulsa Tough omnium series.

    “I knew it was with in reach but not likely,” Olds said. “This win is awesome. It is very cool to win the overall here and it’s huge for my team. I think this will start to open the doors for more people consider supporting our program.” {CN}

    RockStar … PROMAN doin’ it right  {thanks LyneLamaroux!!!}

    The thing is – even if a team like Cervelo or Columbia makes a grab for Shelley … it’s still nothing but success for the PROMAN program.

    well done, coolcats.
