Brandt tallies first win in 2010

GrandStay Hotels newest member, Gregg Brandt, notched the team's first win of the season, winning the Focus Grand Prix Criterium on March 20th in Gilbert, AZ. Facing off against current professional riders and with no teammates on hand (though he did have an ally in former Minnesotan Eric Marcotte), Brandt put his formidable finishing speed to work and took the win in a field sprint. Down in Arizona for some pre-season training, Brandt will be heading home soon, looking to put his form to the test as the Minnesota race season commences in mid-April.
