Eric Young capped off an incredible season that includes 2 NRC wins with a victory at the USA Cycling Professional Criterium National Championship. He will be wearing the stars and bars at every crit he participates in next year. The race was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was actually stopped with a few laps left due to severe weather in the area. After a considerable break (reminiscent of the 2010 Little 5) the race resumed and 30 laps were put on the counter. The roads were still wet and several riders went down. BIssell took control and delivered Young to the win. He overtook Jelly Belly's Brad Huff at the line for his 4th National Championship (3 in Collegiate Track). Who knows what lies next? There are clearly big things ahead.
