Rob Britton (Trek Red Truck Racing Team p/b Mosaic Homes), had his strongest weekend of racing this season during the Tour of Walla Walla, WA. Capturing a victory in the road race, and two consecutive 3rd place finishes in the Time Trial and the Waitsburg Road Race, Rob clinched 1st place in the overall General Classification. The Trek Red Truck Team also took the overall Team GC for the weekend.

The first event of the three-stage weekend was the Kellogg Hollow Road Race. The course is a 27-mile loop with an elevation gain of 2200 feet per lap. The 20 mph sustained winds all day Friday took their toll on many riders. The Trek Red Truck Team rode exceptionaly well and were represented in all the moves while in the crosswinds.

The following day was a double wammy with a TT in the morning and a Road Race in the afternoon. The 7.5 mile Wilson Hollow Time Trial course wasn't to rough. It did have a gradual incline into the wind for the first 3.8 miles heading out, then a decent with a strong tailwind heading back. The afternoon Waitsburgh Road Race is a 95 mi course with two major climbs per lap (or "rolling terrain" by the organizer) with a 3k hard climb to the finish. The team was still a little stiff from the TT a few hours before and the pace was pretty easy for the first lap. The goal was to have the team in all breaks, with the focus put on Kona Adobe rider Zack Garland and Symmetrics Will Routley. At the base of the climb, Jamie, Dave and Tyler set the tempo with Rob in tow. The team kept up the heat which allowed Rob to let the hammer down for the finish.

The final stage on Sunday was your standard 60-minute, flat, fast, six corner downtown criterium with a wide open finishing straight. Overall the team rode as a cohesive unit all weekend and ended up with 3 podium spots and 5 top 10 fiishes including Rob Brittons overall individual GC and the overall the team GC. The team will head to Maple Ridge, BC next weekend for the BC Cup #2, Race the Ridge Stage Race.
