Joe Martin Stage Race Colavita-Cooking Light Race Report stage 4

Joe Martin ends with Colavita/Cooking Light on podium.
Stage 4 downtown Criterium
Arkansas

by Jim Williams

The Joe Martin Stage race concluded today with a difficult criterium that was more circuit race with a hill mixed with the city streets of downtown. Colavita Cooking Lights plan was to keep the race together in order try and get the time bonus for Dotsie Bausch at the finish line, as she was only 6 seconds down from the overall lead. The ladies of the Red, white and green jersey’s of Colavita/Cooking Light worked hard to control the race but a break containing Alisha Lion of Webcor and Kori Seehafer of Lipton were able to get away and gained a 15 second advantage. As hard as the Colavita/Cooking Light riders tried they could not bring the break back and Seehafer sprinted away for the win. The end result was that Lion moved into 2nd position on the GC and Bausch slipped to third. The disappointments of the days race could not overshadow a great weekend of racing by the ladies who racked up two stage wins, a second place finish and 2 thirds, 3rd, 6th and 8th spots on general classification and 2nd on the team standings.

Your "blog" is not updated very much! Do you even care that you are taking up space on my bookmark bar. Even though I see you almost every day, the rest of the world may want some Sima to read about. I'm only sending you this "tough love" because ........I care!
