North Star Grand Prix: Winder wins stage 3

USAC Pro Road Tour leader takes bunch sprint in Cannon Falls

UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling’s Ruth Winder claimed victory at Cannon Falls Road Race on Thursday. The 23-year-old outkicked Marlies Mejia (Weber Shimano) and race leader Emma White (Rally) after 64 miles of racing at stage 3 of the North Star Grand Prix.

“It was a hard day today, we were pushing for a break,” Winder said. “A few of us got away for a bit but nothing was sticking. Coming into finishing circuit my teammates were throwing down some final attacks whilst I saved it for the final sprint. It was a little bit sketchy with 1/2 lap to go, when I had to unclip to keep upright. I fought to get on the end of rally train and I just timed my sprint perfectly to win by a few inches.”

Winder’s victory moves her up to second overall on general classification, five seconds behind White, who remains in the North Memorial yellow jersey. White also leads the Greg Lemond best young rider competition.

“The team rode perfectly to protect me from the strong winds and attacks,” White said. “When we got to the finish, we performed the picture perfect lead out and I couldn’t be more lucky to be part of a team who lays it all out for me. I came up a little short, but we’re still pleased with the day and looking forward to the rest of the weekend.”

Winder found herself in the break of the day, along with Heather Fischer, Ellen Noble, Beth Ann Norton, Kendelle Hodges, Kristi Lay and Annie Foreman-Mackay. However, the break was never allowed much of a leash with four sets of QOH and sprint points on offer, and it was all back together by the time the riders hit the finishing circuits.

Tayler Wiles remains leader of the Shimano Queen of the Hill competition and Erica Allar will continue to wear the Jack Links sprint jersey during the Uptown criterium tomorrow. Diamondback best amateur is Ariane Bonhomme and Stephanie Roorda wears the Ellen Watters most aggressive jersey.
