San Dimas, California - Fly V Australia successfully defended Ben Day's lead in the final stage of the 2010 San Dimas Stage Race. The win builds confidence around the Team's approach to the 2010 season and future goals.
As an International Australian Team, Fly V Australia has a goal to be part of the UCI PRO Tour. Team management sees the US racing as a positive step towards attainment of the Team goals. "Team performances and the successes achieved individually such as Ben's overall win will help drive the Team closer to our objectives." Said team Managing Director
Chris White. White went onto say, "When we assessed our 2009 performances we concluded that to demonstrate year on year improvement one area in which we needed to focus on was winning more Tours. This win by Ben certainly gets us on the right pathway to achieving this objective."
Ben Day paid respect to his team mates, "We showed over the last three days through our collective strength that we could close out the overall win against a red hot field stacked full of talent and depth. It was a pleasure riding with the boys; my only cause for concern was for Darren Rolfe who we lost through a crash midway through stage 2. He will make a speedy recovery and we wish him well."
Racing continues in a few days with the Redlands Tour where Team Fly V australia will continue building for future objectives.
