Watsonville resident and Bissell Pro cycling team member Ben Jacques-Maynes got back in the game after nearly nine months of recuperating from a broken collarbone, which he suffered in the 2011 edition of the Amgen Tour of California.

He placed 32nd over the weekend in the Merco Classic stage race and his team secured the overall win with a huge boost from Patrick Bevin.

PodiumInsight did a deep piece about Jacques-Maynes and the road to recovery. Plus, it has some photos where he looks fierce.
