It seems the rumors of discontent in the CMG/Alpine Mortgage camp were true. One day after finally delivering a legit win, Zach Winter was cut from the team. It seems the two DQ's in the first three races may have ruffled some feathers, or maybe his big win took away from teammates who might themelves be looking for that big win. Check out Oregon Velo for more cool pics like this one.
Either way, Zach was the first rider across the line in the last two OBRA races. While his ability to ride like he does may shut down other parts of his brain, the strongest guy in the past two races was just kicked off of his team. WTF?
I'm sure there are plenty of teams that would love to have a rider of his caliber in their jersey, but Zach's all-or-nothing tendencies continue to make team life difficult.
It seems first and third in the last race and one-two in the overall would heal all wounds.
Anyone able to give Zach a new home. How about Hutch's-OIC?
That would be sweet.
If Zach's able to keep racing, watch out.
ZW vs. CMG 2k7.
For all the marbles.
Let's get it on!
