Puebla, Mexico (May 11, 2014) -- The U.S. team wrapped up the competition at the 2014 Pan American Continental Road Championships in Puebla, Mexico, on Sunday with their fifth trip to the podium, courtesy of a silver medal-performance by Joey Rosskopf (Athens, Ga./Hincapie Sportswear Development Team) in the men's road race. It was Rosskopf's second medal of the event after capturing the silver medal in the men's individual time trial on Thursday.
 
Other American medalists during the three days of racing included Evelyn Stevens (San Francisco, Calif./Team Specialized lululemon) riding to victory in the women's individual time trial on Thursday, and Megan Guarnier (Mountain View, Calif./Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team) also doubling up with a bronze medal in Thursday's individual time trial and a silver medal in Saturday's women's road race.
