MVC, Matt Brungard 5th overall, Tour of the Valley – Masters

Congratulations to Matt Brungard of our own Team MVC.  The guys kept the race tough (Jim Yankush took a prime) all weekend, and Matt put himself in a great striking position, with an 8th in the TT on Friday, a very impressive 6th in the tough road stage on Saturday and a 4th place finish in Sunday’s criterium to seal his top 5 overall in GC.  Complete weekend results can be found HERE.  Thanks again to everyone who came out to support Matt and all of Mahoning Valley Cycling (especially Matt’s cheering section, seen below).

Cutest fan club in the world

What's better than cheering for Matt?  Cheering for Matt WITH ICE CREAM!

The Teapot Classic

Team MVC traveled to Chester, WV for a tune-up race before the Tour of the Valley and to celebrate the 4th of July with teammates. The paparazzi followed. The results include a win and 7 out of the top 8 places. Reports are sketchy but there may have been at least one more MVC jersey in the peloton than normal.  We will try to confirm these reports.
