Hanson - Optum - UCSB - Uruguay...

The Optum Pro Cycling Team, presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies has been having a most excellent time down in Uruguay at the Vuelta Ciclista. The duo Z's, Scott Zwizanski and Tom Zirbel were sitting in 2nd and 3rd overall with two stages remaining. Meanwhile Ken Hanson, who by the way is coach of the UCSB Cycling Team (of course I had to work that one in) and as such the whole point of this post, has won three stages and leads the Points Competition. Killer, yes. Glory to the Gauchos - in a round-about way.

Hanson, wearing the blue Sprint Jersey, wins stage 5

Just had to update this one since Hanson ended up the weeklong+ Tour with a fourth sprint win, being the fastest to the line on the tenth stage. Tom Zirbel ended the race in second overall. Pretty successful  foray into South America. Check out more info at the Optum Pro Cycling Website, or at the website of the Vuelta Ciclista del Uruguay.
