This week we preview our first Master Category one team with the Keystone Project Advisory team looking to continue their success in the super series. Known as “the Keystone Kops,” the team have eight strong riders including last years runner up Phil Dixon who will look to make it on the top step in the 2018 series.
Team manager Luke Betros describes the team as a group of mates “ready to wage an all-out assault to become the true masters champions.” Presenting one of the strongest masters teams, Dixon will lead the same after a few solid wins last year including infamously crashing hard during round one but still getting up for the win after a quick lap out.
Mat Franks presents a strong sprinting option and will look to take the opportunity if it comes with Tom Wright the “Thomas de Gendt” of the South Australian masters scene mainly seen off the front of the bunch. The road captain role falls to the calm and collected Kym Howard who is also known as the nicest guy in the peloton while Dan Gale will be the teams rouleur. Two faithful domestiques in Dean Bottrill and Peter Davis will be seen on the front bringing back a break or in another role if needed. Without doubt Keystone Project Advisory will be one of the strongest teams in the masters field.
Major sponsor Keystone Project Advisory provide a wide range of project management services across all industries.
Their team mantra perhaps summaries what the Cycling South Australia Super Series is all about;
“Ride Bikes, Eat Burgers, Drink Beer, Have Fun! If we win great but as long as we have fun we’re happy.”
Stay up to date in the lead up to the 2018 series as we continue our previews next week.
