Zmotion’s Pro 1 / 2 Captain, Grant Potter WINS the MASTERS WORLD’s STAGE RACE IN DEUTSCHLANDSBERG, AUSTRIA!!
zMotion’s Grant Potter just finished this Master’s Stage Race and placed FIRST in the 40-45 class. Recap of race: Stage 1: Crit – Grant attacked on the last lap & scared the field to death after just missing a concrete planter then brushing the barriers with his shoulders coming out of the last corner. He won by 5 bike lengths! We’re pretty sure that set the ‘tone’ for the rest of the stages as the competition realized Potter was on fire! Stage 2: Grant took 3rd in a 14K TT with a sub 24. Stage 3: 100K Road Race, Wow! 2 laps with 2 small ring climbs then 20 K up a 1 K 17% climb then a huge decent then another climb then an uphill finish. Grant knew that he couldn’t stay with the climbers on the last climb so he attacked on 2nd lap of circuit after 3 attempts he got clear and bridged across a 1 minute gap to 2 guys then 3 others caught and 6 of them made break for last 30 K. Grant got dropped on last climb but chased 6K and caught with 1K to go! He ended up 4th – According to Grant, one of the best races of the year for him. Stage 4:300 meter street sprints, 3rd place. Stage 5: According to Grant, the hardest yet! 4K, called the “Hill Climb.” Ouch! You climb up a hill to a beautiful castle, then 3K flat then downhill, then a 90 degree right turn & up 13 – 16% for 1K… 6th Place. Grant will compete in another RR and then a 20K TT on Saturday. Go Grant!! Your family, team and friends are all so proud of you! You rock!
