From the Archives: Marco at City of Commerce Criterium, 1995

As you have, probably, grown tired of hearing, 1995 marked the inaugural year of the Team Xtreme. Since many of us had joined the Team after racing a number of years with the Cheverolet / LA Sheriff Cycling Team, the Chevy / Sheriff sponsored Commerce Criterium was, understandably, a big target for us. I believe the photo above is from the (or one of the) Cat 4 race(s), with Captain Marco Quintero rounding turn one while out front of the bunch, and may very well have been the lap Marco took an uncontested prime - uncontested because he was so far ahead, and no one else was able to put up a challenge.
