We invest a lot in rider development and retention, and we're thrilled to report some recent dividends. In the past month we have had four riders upgrade from 3 to 2 on the road: Peter Strittmatter, Dave Moyer, Jacques Cartier and Greta Neimanas. To fill their shoes, several riders have recently upgraded from 4 to 3 on the road: Mike Seguin, Kyle Wiberg, Tom Briney, Liam Donoghue and Brian Morrissey. Most of these riders started their careers with us and are products of our Elite Development Program. And with six weeks of racing left, we expect there are still more upgrades to come.
