"Our men have the daunting task of being two-time defending team time trial champs, with only one rider returning from last year's squad," Hagan

Fort Lewis cycling coach Dave Hagan said an unfortunate sequence of events led to the shutout and zero points in the men's crit. He
said after a couple of early breakaways, a key group slipped away from the leaders with 25 minutes to go.

Pushing to get back into the race, two FLC riders went down, Hagan
said, as Yarden Gazit and Assaf Yogev both skidded to the pavement.

said, was the fact that two more FLC riders got caught in the traffic behind the crash.
"That was the worst case scenario," Hagan
said, recalling the frustrating men's crit.
