Planet Bike Cup - A Pair of 4th's

Sporting his new kit on on Saturday

Jordan has a very successful debut for his new team, the Clif Bar Development Cross Team. He finished 4th in both of the Cat 2/3 races at the Planet Bike Cup this past weekend. There were close to 100 starters both days in each of his races.

He scored the hole shot on Saturday, and was leading the race for the first lap. Unfortunately, he slipped out in a corner, and the rider following couldn't avoid him. Jordan ended up with a broken wheel and frame. However, he shook it off, and rode his broken machine to the pit, and grabbed his other bike. He lost a good 20 spots, but didn't lose his composure. He steadily worked his way back up to finish a strong 4th. Well done Jordan.

Better luck on Sunday, but still not perfect. Let's face it, perfect races in cross are very rare. Jordan's right shifter slipped down a couple laps in, forcing him to pit and switch bikes. He still rode a strong race, staying in the battle for 2nd place until the last lap, where he lost a little ground, and finished 4th.

Jordan was frustrated both days with the problems he had, but knows it's part of cyclocross. Tenacity is key in races like that, and I was proud of him for not giving up.

Jordan joins Clif Bar Development Cross Team

Jordan will be racing Cyclocross this fall for the Clif Bar Development Cross Team. The team is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, managed by Ben Turner. This is a huge step for Jordan in the sport of Cyclocross!

Up until last week, Jordan was planning on racing again for Planet Bike. Todd Schmidt of Ridley USA took notice of Jordan's performance at Tuesday Night Cross, and saw great potential. Todd made several calls, and quickly connected Jordan with Ben Turner. A huge THANKS to Todd for making it happen!

I'd also like to share our gratitude for Planet Bike and Bob Downs. They have been incredibly supportive and generous the past 2 seasons, and were very willing to allow Jordan to switch teams this close to the start of the season.
