Nathan Brown rode his way onto the podium in Wuustewezel, Belgium on Sunday as six juniors rode for the U.S. National Team in the Omloop Der Vlaamse Gewesten. Brown placed third after riding with a seven-person breakaway that lasted for 80-kilometers of the UCI 1.1 race. Teammate Gavin Mannion (Dedham, Mass./Hot Tubes) won the sprint for eighth-place, while Jacob Rathe (Portland, Ore./CMG Racing) was tenth. Ian Boswell (Bend, Ore./Hot Tubes) finished in 24th, Lawson Craddock (Houston, Texas/Hot Tubes) in 97th, and Ryan Eastman (Petaluma, Calif./All Sport-Team Swift)in 158th after crashing with five kilometers to go.
The boys did great, good ride by all of them.
