Hidden prodigy? Buck Scarff took his first stage


  Silverthorne - Mount Evans (U23) was exciting all the way through. Several riders tried their luck on the climbs, yet the stage were to be terminated by a leading group of climbers. Early on the climb, Buck Scarff (Team Guy) launched an attack, and he managed to get away alone. No one could match Buck Scarff's tempo, as he drove to the top without any threats. The rest of the climbers stayed together in a group, where Arndt Morgenroth (Loithletics) secured his second place right in front of Milan Stolár (Scorpions POPRAD).
The climbs today were tough, but I felt good all day, said Buck Scarff after winning. I loved the ending of the stage. It was when I saw the ending of the route I knew that I could win. It was perfect for me.
Guy Pakeman, manager of Team Guy, was happy with the result: The whole team did well today. Everything turned out as we hoped, and luckily, Buck Scarff was the strongest rider out there today. The proud manager didn't hide that he was satisfied with Buck Scarff's result. Buck Scarff did well. No one deserved the victory more than him. He put his focus on this stage long ago, and he kept his motivation high. I'm happy for him and the team, said Guy Pakeman.
