After a 12 month postponement due to Covid Ethan Craine left Palmerston North in March to be based in Boston & ride with the New England Devo team until September

After a good period of acclimatization, training and local racing the New England Devo team got their major race campaign under way at the Armed Forces Cycling Classic in Virginia 5-6 June. In his first international elite race Ethan got of the mark with a solid 14th against some of America’ top crit racers including the then USA Criterium Champion Justin Williams and the Legion Team from Los Angeles

Next up is the Tour of America’s Dairyland 16 – 27 June half way across the country in Milwaukee. 10 days of 75min town centre crit racing with points accumulating from each evenings race towards the overall omnium. As we write they have completed 6 days of racing. Ethan got off to a solid start with a 19th followed by 2 days on the 3rd step, 2 days in 4th, a bad day at the office on day 5 and a solid 5th on day 6. Consistency is paying off and he is currently sitting in 3rd overall on 117 points, 1 point behind 2nd with the tour leader on 152 points. We wish him luck for the remaining 4 days and we’ll keep you posted on where he ends up at the Tour of America’s DairyLand and the rest of the season
