UCI Continental professional cycling team Silber Pro Cycling, an Argon 18 partner, delivered a fierce competition last week at the Redlands Bicycle Classic. Matteo dal Cin is the first Canadian to ever win this event in the race’s 34-year history. That’s historic!
The win was a total team effort. All the guys could not be more proud. Redlands is the first major “appointment” on the North American domestic racing season. After a winter spent training and an early season where teams are scattered around racing in Arizona, Florida, Texas, California and abroad… Everyone converges in Redlands with their ‘A’ players and their ‘A’ game wanting to test themselves against each other for the first time of the season.
“I’m over the moon it was such a cool experience executing our plan,” says Matteo dal Cin. “The team was amazing. Words can’t describe how great it was to have the guys looking out for me all week. It really helps you dig-in that little bit more when you know your teammates have put their trust in you — you have to do your best ride, after they sacrifice for you all day.”
