Scenes, coverage from the Wilmington Grand Prix


WILMINGTON — The United Healthcare Pro Cycling team threw its weight around in the final stages of the 2013 Bank of America Wilmington Grand Prix on Saturday to help member Luke Keough take first place in the 35-mile race.

United Healthcare set the pace for the peloton during the final laps, creating a wall of riders the field had to get through for the final sprint. Keough was the main beneficiary, besting teammate Hilton Clarke by 0.36 seconds.

“Awesome,” Keough said of the win. “Obviously, the guys rode really well and came together at the end. We got the win and second, as well. You can’t beat that. You can’t do this without teammates. Luckily, I had the strongest guys helping me out. We’ve been racing together week after week. ... It works out really well when it comes down to the end.”  [full article ...]
