Greenville, S.C. (July 27, 2015)— Fresh off finishing 1-2 in the overall, winning two stages, and Best Young Rider and Team classifications at Cascade Cycling Classic, the Hincapie Racing Team has announced its lineup for the 2015 Tour of Utah with some of the most promising young riders in the field.
A 2014 showing in the Beehive state saw team riders trade the KOM jersey for most of the race, setting high expectations for this year’s edition. The 2015 team includes Ty Magner, Oscar Clark, Jon Hornbeck, Dion Smith, Robin Carpenter, Joe Schmalz, Mac Brennan, and Salt Lake City resident Rob Squire, who is healthy and back to racing. Chief Sports Director Thomas Craven will lead the team.
“Last year’s Tour of Utah started us on a tear when Joey Rosskopf went toe-to toe with Cadel Evans on the Snowbird stage and ultimately took home the overall KOM,” said Chief Sports Director Thomas Craven. “It was the catalyst we needed; Robin Carpenter then won a stage of the 2014 USA Pro Challenge, we won the 2015 Team Time Trial National Championship, and Toms took stage 3 of the Tour of California. Our guys haven’t slowed down since leaving Utah last year, and we’re more motivated than ever.”
