Mara Abbott is a climber for any occasion, the harder the better. Abbott, along with her diligent Exergy-TWENTY16 team, took control on the first stage and never diverted their attention as they held the field captive during the five days and 15,000 feet of climbing at the Silver City Tour of the Gila Powered by SRAM.
Abbott demonstrated her uphill skills on the opening Mogollan Road Stage, as well as the final day’s Gila Monster stage, sandwiching the race with key wins and securing the overall. Team Exergy-TWENTY16 also took the team GC, capping an solid week for a team that’s won the southwestern classic for the past three years.
Congratulations to Exergy-TWENTY16, who roll SRAM RED componentry, Zipp wheels, bars, stems and seatposts.
