SAN CARLOS, Calif. - Meredith Miller with Ritchey Design-sponsored Team TIBCO captured the 2009 U.S. Elite National Road Championship title in Bend, Ore., July 30. This marks the second year in a row for Team TIBCO to wear the National Championship jersey following Brooke Miller's win with Team TIBCO in 2008.

Miller was part of a five-rider break away that formed late on the last hilly lap of the four-lap circuit. She attacked the breakaway on the final kicker just 2 km from the finish line. This proved to be a stellar move as she gapped her breakmates and was able to solo in with style.

The U.S. National Road Championship course is a four-lap circuit totaling 72 miles and more than 1,000 vertical feet of climbing per lap.

Team TIBCO benefits from the lightweight, stiffness and quality of its Ritchey Design WCS components, including WCS 4-Axis Stems, WCS Logic II Bars and WCS 1-Bolt Seatposts.
