We are pleased to announce that the Hincapie Sportswear Development Cycling Team has been invited to race in the 2014 USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado. Racing in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge has been the top goal of the team for quite some time and the riders and staff are overjoyed with the invitation. The team has been continually developing over the past two seasons and have shown that they are now one of the top domestic stage racing teams. It brings us great satisfaction to see the team's hard work and race results being recognized by the USA Pro Cycling Challenge organizers. Our team is ready for the “challenge” and plan to put on a great show for cycling fans and spectators.
Toms Skujiņš dominated the 2014 edition of the Tour de Beauce in Québec, Canada. Toms soloed to the finish of stage 2 where claimed the stage win and the yellow jersey. Toms and the team sucessfully defended the jersey for the remainder of the week while once again putting Toms in a breakaway on the last stage. The final day happened to be Toms birthday and it gave him a little extra motivation at the finish, where he handily outsprinted his breakaway companions.
The final awards ceremony turned into the Toms Skujiņš show where he was recognized for winning two stages, the General Classification, the Points Competition and the Best Young Rider Competition.
