The Gatorade Bici Hill Climb took place in Caracas, Venezuela on February 8th and had an incredible number of PCG athletes not only participate, but dominate the race!
Tomas Gil, professional cyclist on the Yellow Fluo Italian Team, and former winner of Tour of Venezuela dominated the Gatorade Bici Hill Climb with a time of 17:44 and watts per Kilogram of 6.0 for the climb!
Gilbert DuCournau of the USA based InterMountain/Live Well Team placed 3rd, while Miguel Ubeto of the Venezuelan National Team placed 4th.
Tomas, Gilbert and Miguel are all coached by Hunter Allen. This is incredible early season domination and all three riders are coming off the 10 day Vuelta a Tachira race earlier in Mid-January.
