COACH COLE ON JOSH: "When things aren't always going the way you want, you typically have to make a decision to do something about it. Josh did that this summer. After a couple of moderate years of running and racing, Josh put in a big summer and is hoping that will translate into more desirable results in his racing. That increased fitness will combine with Josh's always-present competitiveness, and we're optimistic the outcome will be some rewarding competitive moments for him and our team."
