U.S. finishes with five medals at Pan Am Championships after Rosskopf silver
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.
Sunday's 171.2-kilometer men's road race came down to a field sprint after Rosskopf broke away with three other riders, but it was Ecuador's Bayron Guama taking the win on the line, nipping Rosskopf and Colombia's Juan Suarez. The winning time was 4:33:42.
Ty Magner (Griffin, Ga./Hincapie Sportswear Development Team) gave the U.S. team another top-10 finish as he came across the line in ninth place, 1 minute and 52 seconds off the pace.
