US Pro crit champion Holloway wins in Sheboygan

Van Gilder adds another victory

The 8th Stage of the Tour of America’s Dairyland traveled along the Lake Michigan coastline to Sheboygan.

Mellow Mushroom continued their domination in the women's races, first with Kristen Lasasso off the front for several laps while overall leader Laura Van Gilder was tucked safely away in the peloton.

Then came a prime lap with seven to go, which catapulted Van Gilder out of hiding to take the prize and an immediate retreat to once again silently watch and wait.

Kori Seehofer (Team Type 1) and Kelley Hess (Team Kenda pb Geargrinder) spent a few moments near the front before the field all came back together.

Then it was Jennifer Greenberg’s (Team Kenda) turn to launch off the front but with two to go, it was back to being anyone’s race as Lasasso and Starla Teddergreen (Vanderkitten-Focus) sat at the front.

But whipping around the corner on that final turn was the all-powerful Van Gilder who reared her head then tucked it down for the win and another day in the leader's jersey. Colleen Gulick (Team Kenda) and Holly Matthews (ISCorp) finished second and third, respectively.

In the elite men's race, US Pro Criterium Champion Daniel Holloway prevailed in a field sprint finale, besting overall leader Serghei Tvetcov (AeroCat Cycling Team) and Rafael Meran (Foundation/CRCA).

After numerous attacks throughout the 90-minute race, the field was back together in the closing laps. With three to go Wisconsin native Zachary Davies, racing for V Australia, attacked in a bid for solo victory. Davies seemed destined to be the darkhorse upset of the day, but as the field launched its attack on the backside of the course on the final lap, cutting the gap in half to just 6 seconds, it was Holloway who screamed to the front in the final half lap to earn the victory.

The Tour of America's Dairyland is down to the final three days of racing with the Fond du Lac Gran Prix on Friday, the ISCorp Downer Classic in Milwaukee on Saturday and concluding on Sunday in Madison around the State Capitol at the Madison Capital Criterium.
