Team Melody Farm Reigns Supreme at the Gran Fondo Asheville

Professional golfer Camilo Villegas finishes 2nd overall and Pro cyclist Laura Jorgenson wins the women’s category

Congratulations to the podium finishers at the weekend at this year’s SOLD OUT Gran Fondo Asheville in North Carolina.

Over 500 cyclists took part despite a quick rainstorm that made the event a smidge more difficult than expected, so kudos to everybody that was able to finish!

Pro Golfer Camilo Villegas won his age group and finished 2nd overall and his team Melody Farms along with team members Antonio Donado, William Gil And Dario Gallizugaro. It was team mate Antonio Donado who was fastest overall in the 100 mile Gran Fondo.

In the 30 mile Piccolo Fondo it was Dean Yobbi from Black Mountain NC who was the fastest overall and Lauren Detoro the fastest in the women’s category.

Pro cyclist Laura Jorgenson won the women’s category. She recently rode the USA Cycling Criterium Nationals and rode the Joe Martin Stage race earlier this year with RTO National Women's Cycling. She was closely followed by Courteney Lowe and Jenny Leiser.
