National Champ Brooke Miller to Race at Tri-Flow Menlo Park Grand Prix

This from Team TIBCO:

Los Altos, California – U.S. National Road and Criterium Champion Brooke Miller and Team TIBCO teammates Alison Rosenthal and Alison Starnes will again mix it up with the NorCal crowd at the Tri-Flow Menlo Park Grand Prix, Sunday, March 8 at 10:50 a.m. The women’s pro/1/2 race will honor Kristy Gough this year.

“We’re really lucky to have such quality races and strong fields on the local NorCal scene,” Miller said. “Everyone on our team wants to make sure they’re in top form for the early NRC races, such as Redlands at the end of the month. Races like Menlo definitely keep us in race shape.”

The Grand Prix will also give friends, family and fans of Team TIBCO the opportunity to see double national champion Miller and her teammates up close and in person.

“Criteriums are always very spectator-friendly,” Miller said. “We love it when the crowds come out and are loud! These races give people the unique opportunity to interact with the riders before and after the race, and also feel the electricity of racing. Once the national season kicks off, there won’t be too many more local races like this that we’re able to do.”

The course is easily accessible from Highway 101 on the Peninsula, as well as the Dumbarton Bridge coming from the East Bay. For directions and additional information, visit
