Arizona’s Eric Marcotte wins silver at Pan Am games road race

U.S. National Criterium Champion Eric Marcotte is taking home a silver medal from the Pan American games road race Saturday in Toronto.

The men’s 103-mile race finished in a head-to-head sprint among four men.

Venezuela’s Miguel Ubeto Aponte edged out Marcotte at the line after nearly four hours of racing.

“If you saw the photo finish, you know I’m gutted how close it was,” Marcotte, of Scottsdale, Ariz., wrote on his Facebook page. “But I gave myself and our country a shot at the win.”
