When Brendan Rhim (Holowesko Citadel) attacked off the front on the last lap of the legendary Sunset Loop Road Race, doubts were in the air. Could he make it? Surely, he’d be caught right at the line.
All those questions were quashed when Rhim never eased up after his surprise attack toward the end of the 94-mile finale at Redlands Classic. When he hit the final downtown circuits, the young Holowesko rider maintained a 25 second advantage despite a charging chase group led by a dominating Axeon Hagens Berman team.
