Redlands Cycling Classic Criterium



Colavita Cooking Lights Pic wins Redlands crit

by Jim Williams

The second stage of the Redlands bicycle classis took place saturday March 25th on the streets of downtown Redlands. Stage two was the notoriously fast,technically criterium. Today's race was a story of two races in one, the first race being the race for the overall leader and a race for the stage. In the race for the overall lead it became a battle of time bonuses as Amber Neben held a 1 second lead over Lipton's Kristin Armstrong. Armstrong won the first time bonus of the day and collected 3 seconds.

Three laps before the second time bonus, T-Mobile's Ina Teutenberg launched an attack that no one could follow and gained an advantage to 10 seconds. Team Lipton went to the front and brought her back setting Armstrong up for another 3 second time bonus. At this point teams and riders started to shift their attention to the second race with in the race, that being for stage honors. With four laps to go Teutenberg once again put in a blistering attack which was immediately covered by
Colavita Cooking Lights Sarah Tillotson with teammate Tina Pic in tow. Colavita then kept the pace high with work from Dotsie Bausch and Sima Trapp. With 1 lap to go it was three Lipton riders on the front, followed by Pic and Tuetenberg. Fans were treated to an exciting finish as they leaned over the fencing to get a glimpse of who would round the final corner in first. It was Colavita Cooking Light's Tina Pic followed by T-mobiles Tuetenberg, with Pic able to hold off the current World Cup Leader for the win. In third position was Lipton's fast finisher, Laura
VanGilder.

Tomorrow rider will face 9 laps on the demanding sunset road
circuit were the final general classification will be determined.
