The large turnout of the team – FGX fielded 12 riders – no doubt worked to Singer’s advantage. Ira Blumberg, Andy Newsom, Brian Milligan, Mike Anderson, Etsu Taniguchi, Mike Beckerman, Tim Stenovec and Brad Stratton were just a few of the team members to chase down breaks, while Tim Voake, Josh Grossman and Lenny Galati stayed close to Singer so he could save all his energy for the sprint finish.
Other members of FGX -- Alexei Zakharov, Chris Shaw, Harry Zernike, Mike Kuehn and Eric McLaughlin -- were integral in supporting Singer in other races in the series.
FGX also took first overall in the Men's Category 3-4 field, besting Bethel Cycles and CRCA/Sixcycle-RK&O for the series team win. It was the third consecutive year that a member of FGX won the overall series at Bethel, and the second year that FGX won the team competition.
FGX Racing is looking forward to building on this early success as we enter the heart of the 2013 racing season. Taniguchi and the team would like to thank race promoter (and fellow racer!) Aki Sato, for putting on the series as well as Outdoor Sports Center for their generous support throughout the series. The team would also like to thank FGX, Veselka, Techneto IT Solutions, Eddystone Capital, Schwalbe, Sid’s Bikes, 9W Magazine and DessertBuzz.com for their generous support.
