Pezzulo also rode for a podium finish in third place in Saturday’s Brady Village Criterium.

 

“Tiff put together an incredible performance this weekend in tough conditions and in a tough field of riders,” said Primal/MapMyRIDE Team Director Susannah Gordon. “The team rode great and was able to help Tiffany get in a position to be competitive at the end on Friday and Saturday and she finished the job.”

The three-day omnium is the team’s final event prior to the USA Cycling Elite Road Nationals in Augusta, GA later this month.

 

“The Tulsa Tough is such a fun event and suits my strengths well,” Pezzulo said. “We raced great as a group and are feeling strong and prepared as we head into our first Nationals race as a team.”

 

Primal/MapMyRIDE member Liza Rachetto also took home a top-10 finish during the three days of racing in Oklahoma.
