November 9/12 17:52 pm - Team H&R BLOCK Celebrates Most Successful Season to Date

Posted by Editoress on 11/9/12

Team H&R Block has concluded it’s most successful season to date, finishing the 2012 season with some impressive wins and solid international results. The success of the 2012 season is a result of several years of growth and development for this young squad.

The team kicked off the 2012 season with overall wins at Tour of Walla Walla, WA (USA), the Mutual of Enumclaw Stage Race, WA (USA) and the Robert Cameron Law Cycling Series as part of the Victoria International Cycling Festival, BC (CAN).

As the season progressed, so did the team results. The summer months saw the team secure the overall win at the Banff Bike Festival, AB (CAN), second place at the TNA Westside Cycling Classic, BC (CAN) and a top 10 overall result at the Tour de Beauce, QC (CAN) - 2.2 UCI. The team then came together in late June to earn a fourth place finish at the Canadian U23 Time Trial Championships and a fifth place finish at the Elite Men’s Canadian National Road Championships. The team wrapped up the season with some solid results at the BMC Cascade Cycling Classic, which saw a fifth place finish in the Crooked River TT and a tenth place finish in the Downtown Criterium.
