The 2012 Sea Otter Classic stage race opened with an early morning criterium, the women taking off at 8am, where Alison Powers and her Now & Novartis team controlled the race and delivered Powers to the stage win and general classification lead.

Powers topped Specialized-lululemon's Loren Rowney and Emily Collins (Vanderkitten) in the sprint at the end of a race that was marred by several crashes.

Olivia Dillon and Robin Farina (Now & Novartis) took turns attacking to soften up the field, but a concerted chase by the Primal/MapMyRide team brought the race to a bunch sprint, which played into Powers' hands perfectly.

The winner of the final stage at the Redlands Classic and runner-up overall there was led to the line by her team and finished off the victory with ease.

In the hour-long men's race, it was the Kenda/5 Hour Energy team that shone, delivering Andy Jacques-Maynes to the victory and race lead. Jacques-Maynes was part of a three-man breakaway with Connor McCutcheon (Simple Green) and Morgan Schmitt (Exergy) which went clear in a counter-attack of a move by Kenda's Nate English.

The trio stayed clear until the finish, where the more experienced Jacques-Maynes used his savvy to outfox his younger rivals.
