Scott Zwizanski
Binghamton, New York (August 27, 2006) - Nevada's Scott Zwizanski finished second in today's Chris Thather Memorial after spending three quarters of the 50-mile criterium in a six-rider breakaway.

Drenched by a steady rain from start to finish, the lead group included Zwizanski, Colavita-Sutter Home's Davide Frattini, Navigators Insurance's Hilton Clarke and Ciaran Power, and one rider each from Targetraining and Symmetrics.

Zwizanski positioned himself well for the sprint and came off the Targetraining rider's wheel at the right moment, but couldn't hold off Clarke, who took his third national-level win in the last three weeks ahead of Zwizanski and Frattini.

As the difficult conditions shattered the field behind the break, Nevada's Jackson Stewart and Martin Gilbert finished 10th and 12th, respectively.

The team's attention turns now to next weekend's USA Cycling Professional Championships time trial and road race in Greenville, South Carolina. Nevada's five-rider squad features Jackson Stewart, Ben Jacques-Maynes, Jesse Anthony, Scott Zwizanski and Mike Dietrich.

Looking ahead to Greenville, Zwizanski said, "We've got a good team and I'm excited. Not having foreign riders will change the tactics, but Ben and Jackson are two of the best road racers in America so it's going to be a good race for us."

Meanwhile, Nevada's Dan Schmatz and Pete Lopinto will be racing at the four-day Gateway Cup in St. Louis, Schmatz' hometown.
