March 17/02 5:37 am - Arndt Takes Redlands Stage 5
Posted by Editor on 03/17/02
Judith Arndt (Saturn) confirmed that her win in stage 3 was not a fluke, by winning the final stage of the Redlands Classic. Genevieve Jeanson (Rona) blew the field apart early in the 99 kilometre hilly circuit race and managed to gain a maximum of nearly 2 minutes on the chasers, led by Arndt, her Saturn teammate Lyne Bessette and British mountain biker Caroline Alexander. However, Jeanson faltered in the latter stages of the race, and Bessette led Arndt up to the Rona rider. Arndt then dropped the other two riders to solo in for the victory. Results will be posted as they become available.
