Elevate-KHS teammates Sam Bassetti and Scotty Law showed the rest of the pro men’s field a clean pair of heels after a fast and furious 90-minute downtown Redlands criterium. Yesterday’s Highland Circuit Race champion, Sebastian Haedo (UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling), rounded out the podium in third.
Jessica Cerra of Hagens Berman Supermint crossed the line with a sizeable lead for the first stage win of her career, and the first of the season for the team. The 2014 Best Amateur winner at Redlands Bicycle Classic had launched an attack to nab the final sprint points for the day securing her lead in green, before looking back and realizing she had gaped the break. Keeping her head down in the final laps, she surprised even herself, finishing ahead of Allison Beveridge (Rally Cycling), and Lauren Hall (UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling)
