Posted by Editoress on 05/20/16

Eighteen women’s teams in the Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease™ Women’s Race Empowered with SRAM faced off for the race’s first-ever team time trial, with TWENTY16 – Ridebiker ending the day on top.

Twenty16 - Ridebiker Racks Up Team Time Trial Win With U.S. National Time Trial Champion Armstrong On The Heels Of Race Leader Guarnier

The team time trial was stage two of four at Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease™ Women’s Race Empowered with SRAM, a 197.8-mile road race that was selected as the first of only two U.S. events on the first-ever UCI Women’s WorldTour.

Eighteen teams contested the team trial on the same 20.3 km Folsom course the men would ride later in the day. The first team time trial for the California race, each team chose four riders to compete together, with the clock stopping when the final team member crossed the finish line.

With four-time National Time Trial Champion Kristin Armstrong at the helm, TWENTY16 – Ridebiker upset the favourites, with Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team, containing reigning U.S. National Road Race Champion and current race leader Megan Guarnier, settling for second place by six seconds, followed by UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team, which finished 25 seconds off the best time of the day. Twenty16 – Ridebiker’s final time was 27:33 on the 20.27 km course, which puts the average speed at a brisk 44.26 kmph. Armstrong, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, is in the hunt for a spot on this year’s Rio cycling team.

Romy Kasper (Boels-Dolmans) had the fastest time on the course. Guarnier was the big winner in the jersey competitions with the Visit California Sprint Jersey and the Lexus Queen of the Mountain (QOM) Jersey. The SRAM Best Young Rider Jersey changes hands to today’s winning team’s 19 year-old Chloe Dygert .

In the overall standings, American riders top the leader board midway through the race with Guarnier (Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team) holding onto her GC lead and the Amgen Race Leader Jersey by 12 seconds over Armstrong (TWENTY16 – Ridebiker), and two-time National Time Trial Champion Evelyn Stevens (Boels-Dolmans) in third place, 22 seconds down. TWENTY16 – Ridebiker’s Leah Thomas (44s) and UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team’s Coryn Rivera (47s) round out the top five.

Team Rally, the USPRO Team Time Trial champs, crashed, losing 3 riders: Fisher, Poidevin and Lay, 2 of whom would abandon the race, with Poidevin limping in outside the time limit.
