Season opener of the Valley Preferred Cycling Centre in Trexlertown, PA, began with the UCI U.S. Sprint Gran Prix. Stefan set himself up nicely with a sprint qualifier of 10.300 behind Canadian Teammate Hugo Barrette. In the quarter finals Stefan was matched up with Eddie Dawkins (NZL). Thanks to Chris Knight for posting photos.
Next onto the semi-final where Stefan was matched up with Harrie Lavreysen (NED). Where he lost with a very close finish.
To finish the evening Stefan was matched up with teammate Hugo Barrette (CAN) for the third place final. Stefan came up a little short, finishing 4th in the UCI U.S. Sprint Gran Prix – a great result nevertheless!
