    Grospe leads gallant ride by Go For Gold cyclists in Vietnam race

    May 15, 2019

    The Go For Gold Developmental Cycling Team got tested in a series of punishing mountainous terrains and gallantly passed the grade in a four-day bikathon in Vietnam.

    Ismael Grospe Jr. was named King of the Mountain in the Dien Bien Phu 2019 international race while fellow Go For Gold riders Daniel Ven Carino and Ean Cajucom nearly hit the target in the sprint classification.

    Jericho Jay Lucero then put the finishing touches to an impressive campaign against an elite field of riders by placing second in the torturous final stage behind Vietnamese climber Huynh Thanh Tung.

    "Our young guns have proven that our faith in them is well-placed,’’ said Go For Gold godfather Jeremy Go.

    After making it to the Top 10 of the general classification, the 20-year-old Grospe also duplicated his feat as Ronda Pilipinas best young rider by winning the same award in Vietnam.

    Marc Ryan Lago, another promising cyclist who also rides for the national team, checked in third overall in the best young rider race followed by Lucero at fourth and Cajucom at seventh. The team finish fifth overall out of 12 teams.
