Joe Martin: Winder wins Devil's Den time trial

Tibco's Lauren Stephens is second

UnitedHealthcare's Ruth Winder took top honours Thursday during the opening time trial at the Joe Martin Stage Race, covering the 4.8km uphill race against the clock in 10:56, less than a second faster than runner-up Lauren Stephens (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank). Stephens' teammate Kathryn Buss was third, five seconds back.

"I'm really happy, surprised and pleased," Winder said. "The course was hard. I liked the rolling hills, they suited me and my power. Tomorrow's stage will be hard and I'm looking forward to it."

Starting just 25 riders into the 80-rider field, Winder had a long, nervous day on the hot seat as rider after rider failed to surpass her time. Stephens, starting second to last, brought the drama to a crescendo when she finished just four-tenths of a second behind the winner.

With no time bonuses for the stage, Winder now takes her slight advantage into the stage 2 road race, a 99.6km day that starts and finishes in Fayetteville.

"We have three riders in the top 6 so it gives us some options," said UnitedHealthcare director Rachel Heal. "Tibco is sitting just .4 of a second behind us, so it's going to be a good battle and it's one we're looking forward to."
