* Tour of Gila (USA) 19-25 April - Peter Livingstone (BiciSport Mobius) has been racing at the Tour of Gila in New Mexico. Peter's race report follows - The first two days were hard and fast road races, the open freeways with well kept roads made the average speeds fast and getting in breaks difficult. A fantastic experience being in the pro American peloton. I have been unlucky to be caught in crashes in vital times on both stage 1 & 2. I am also going to ignore the ITT as it was an open fast course and without a TT bike I would be standing still. I have been on "bottle duty" for the Mobius team and riding in the wind at the front of the race which has been a fantastic experience especially being a part of the pro teams trains riding the front. I will have some leadership opportunities in the upcoming Redlands Tour. Results have been - Stage 1 and 102nd @ 2min 53secs. Stage 2 and 104th @ 2min 17 secs. Stage 3 was a 26k time trial and 131st @ 6min 52secs. Stage 4 was 63rd @ 3secs
