The recent Niseko Gran Fondo World Series Time Trial in Hokkaido, Japan, proved to be short and very sweet for Crank Punk Coaching Systems rider Taylor Price of Salt Lake, Utah.
Taylor smashed the 3km TT to win by over 20 seconds ahead of two local Japanese riders. The victory ensures Taylor will be lining up for the Gran Fondo World Champs in Varese on August 30th, before which he will also be taking part in the elite amateur USA National TT next week on the 26th of July.
Although not a 'pure' time trialist in the mode of an Indurain or a Cancellara, my collaboration with Taylor (who now resides in Shanghai) has seen him make some major improvements in this hard discipline. The focus now moves to Varese and getting Taylor in the best shape of his life for a real tilt at the title!
Well done amigo!
