After two races of the Southeast portion of U.S. Criterium Series, the Kodak Gallery team is focused on the series title.

In Saturday's Athens (Ga.) Twilight criterium, Thornton rode to a second-place finish behind winner Mark Hekman of Abecrombie & Fitch. Jittery Joe's Trent Wilson was third in the crash-filled Athens race.

Aaron's Katharine Carrol took Saturday's title in Athens. Iona Wynter of Colavita-Sutter Home was second. Chrissy Ruiter of Cheerwine took third.
