Kline, Schneider lead Bell Lap standings after Tour of Somerville

New leaders after double-header weekend in Winston-Salem and Somerville

Cyclingnews' Bell Lap criterium series continued with rounds three and four over Memorial Day weekend at Winston-Salem Classic Criterium on May 26 and the Tour of Somerville in New Jersey on May 28. Shane Kline (Smartstop Self Storage) leads the men's standings with 31 points, and Samantha Schneider (Iscorp Pro Cycling) leads the women's category with 50 points.

Colin Joyce (Rally Cycling) briefly took over the series lead following his victory at the Winston-Salem Classic Criterium, which gave him 25 points, tied with both Rochester Twilight winner Jeff Schiller (To Wheels) and Athens Twilight winner John Murphy (Holowesko-Citadel-Arapahoe). 

The standings shifted two days later, after the fourth round in New Jersey, in favour of Tour of Somerville winner Shane Kline, who added the winner's 25 points to the existing six points earned for finishing seventh at Athens Twilight. He now leads the standings with 31 points. Joyce slid to second and Schiller third, both with 25 points.

Schneider continues to hold a strong lead in the women's standings, with 50 points earned after winning both Athens Twilight and Winston-Salem Classic Criterium.

US pro criterium champion Erica Allar (Rally Cycling) maintained her second place in the series with 33 points, combined after placing second in Athens Twilight and third at Winston-Salem. Georgia Baker (Fearless Femme Racing) is in third place with 30 points earned after combining 12 points for finishing fourth at Athens Twilight and 18 points for finishing second at Rochester Twilight.

Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom) joined the series standings after winning Tour of Somerville, and she sits in fourth place with 25 points. 

Cyclingnews created The Bell Lap point series to highlight the most important, historic and challenging races on the criterium circuit - 16 events (19 race days). Men's and women's titles will be awarded to the riders who score the most points over the course of the season in the final overall standings.

The series adopts the FIA Formula 1 points system. Points will be awarded to the top 10 places of each criterium as follows: 1st place - 25 points; 2nd -18; 3rd - 15; 4th -12; 5th - 10; 6th - 8; 7th - 6; 8th - 4; 9th - 2; 10th - 1.

Any ties for position will be decided on results countback. The rider with superior race results (based on descending order, from the number of wins to the number of second places, and down) will be classified ahead, or if applicable, based on the most recent best placed result.

The series will continue at the Saint Francis Tulsa Tough Omnium in Tulsa, Oklahoma, from June 8-10.
