A Manual for Speed talked to Team Exergy's DS Tad Hamilton and rider Morgan Schmitt after Stage 2 of the 2012 Redlands Bicycle Classic.

The teamwork has been near flawless, mechanistic. Carlos took the green jersey today, Cookie looks good for the Polka Dot and if Morgan doesn't have problems during Stage 4 we're there for yellow. We're within an eyelash of sweeping all three jerseys.

It seems like last year we got a lot of breaks, but it's been the opposite this year. We have to be positive, put new tires on, inspect the bikes, prepare like every other team for the next day. It'll turn.—Tad Hamilton

You look at the list of winners from Redlands and you see Levi's name and Scott Moninger and all of these other big names. I'd love to get my name up there and earn a big stage race win for the team.—Morgan Schmitt
