2103 Uptown Criterium

Stage 4 meant we were back in Uptown for the Friday night criterium. It was a warm evening with all the racing action happening fast and furious. Both the men’s and women’s races saw lots of attacks and break attempts. In both cases the races came down to field sprints. In the women’s race the top three on general classification tried to take the stage for the valuable time bonuses. Jade Wilcoxson (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) was able to hold off Shelly Olds (Team TIBCO) and Carmen Small (Specialized-lululemon) to take the stage and remain the GC leader. Jade now has a 9 second lead over Shelly and 11 seconds to Carmen so lots of potential for a new outcome on the hilly Menomonie, WI road race course. On the men’s side Juan Jose Haedo (Jamis Hagens Berman p/b Sutter Home) showed off the powerful sprint he’s been know for taking the stage with Travis McCabe (Elbowz Racing p/b Boneshaker Project) and Mike Friedman (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) rounding out the podium. In the general classificaton Mike Friedman still holds a 37 second lead over his teammate Scott Zwizanski, with Andres Diaz (Elbowz Racing p/b Boneshaker Project) sitting in third at 38 seconds back.
