Limelight for a winning team mate

Written by Team Oasis at 09:53 14/9-2016

  There are riders that live a quiet life on OCM, unnoticed by the crowds. Some may be a jobber, some will be reliable team mates but there are also real strongholds among them. Such a rider is Nick Boezeman.
  
  Boezeman was purchased seasons ago to make the team better. Unofrtunately for him three other training projects had priority. So he was untrained for quite a long time, Training was picked up the season before we wanted to go allin at Vuelta de los Castillos.
  Training ended not long before this tour and boy did that turn out well. Of course Jim Deuring did well in the mountain stages, but the base for his victory was in the hilly stage. We have to thank Boezeman for his brilliant support. Without him we likely woud have ended on 2nd or 3rd spot.
  
  Now at the end of season 37 he finally got the chance to shine himself. We picked three races suitable for him: Kasseler Hügel, Elias Márquez Invitational and the World Championships. In Germany he grabbed a really nice 2nd spot among top hillers. The 8th in the World Championship was decent, considering he had some issues during the race. In Uruguay he really stood up and won the race.
  
  The win at Elias Márquez Invitational was the first win for Team Oasis in this downhill race. The hardest race to win from them all because of all the stats that are required to do well there. It helped that Nick was in the form of his life, but still he had to deliver. Now we can also add this win to our downhill hall of fame. There is only one objective left for Team Oasis which lies in South Africa.
