After winning a silver medal in the Individual Time Trial last week at the Macabbi games in Israel. PCG Athlete, Eddie Stern made it 2 for 2, earning another silver medal in the road race (82km). The circuit course (4 laps), had a challenging 11min climb followed by a steep technical descent. Eddie reports, the race was hard fought. A major attack on the first climb left Eddie out of the lead selection. Before the next climb, Eddie dug deep to bridge across to the lead group of 5 riders. To make his way back to the break, Eddie put out all-time, 1 min and 5 min peak power. On the next climb, Eddie took a flyer off the front and put a hurt on the break group. The group eventually, caught Eddie but he had drained much enthusiasm from their legs. This proved to be a tactical advantage as the finish line approached. When the final sprint launched, most could not respond. Eddie missed taking the Gold medal by 2 seconds. Eddie takes home 4 silver medals from Israel (2 individual and 2 for Team USA). Eddie is coached by PCG Elite Coach Brian Murphy.
