Gage Hecht scored the first victory for Aevolo Cycling, sprinting away from a 9-rider break to take the win on a windy stage 4 in downtown Redlands at the Redlands Bicycle Classic Criterium. UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling’s Danny Summerhill crossed the line for second, with last year’s winner, Ullises Castillo, in third for Jelly Belly Pro Cycling p/b MAXXIS.
Visit Dallas DNA’s Claire Rose won the city of Redlands criterium after spending 20 laps off the front on a solo attack. The English time trial specialist attacked around 15 minutes into the hour-long race and held off the advancing field by 14-second advantage going into the last lap. Megan Jastrab (Amy D) won the field sprint for second place and Lizzie Williams (Supermint Hagens Berman) finished third.
