From the NorCal High School races in Monterey, to Pro cross country races in SoCal, to road races in the Central Valley, the team earned wins in every race and category entered, totaling 9 victories and 16 podium placings!

And on the road, Alex Yeh did more than his share by winning the stage one road race and the overall Cat 2 Topsport Stage Race.
