The final stage in Stillwater was a a hot and sunny day. In the Men’s race Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies controlled the race well with Juan Jose Haedo (Jamis Hagens Berman p/b Sutter Home) winning the stage and Mike Friedman finished second and earned the Nature Valley Grand Prix Champion title. Elbowz Racing p/b Boneshaker Project teammates Andres Diaz and Eric Marcotte rounded out the final GC podium in second and third. In the women’s event, the stage was won by Claudia Hausler (Team TIBCO) but everyone was wondering where the yellow jersey was. The race leader Jade Wilcoxson (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) had crashed in the last corner while trying to leave her rivals behind. That opened the door for Shelley Olds (Team TIBCO) who was only 1 second back on GC to take the final yellow jersey.
