Armstrong and Jacques-Maynes fastest in California

Kristin Armstrong (Cervelo-Lifeforce Pro Cycling Team) dominated the women's time trial at the Sequoia Cycling Classic in Visalia, California, while Ben Jacques-Maynes (Bissell Pro Cycling) won the men's event.

Armstrong blasted through the 40 kilometres in just over an hour, leaving her closest rivals, Alexis Rhodes (High Road) and Felicia Gomez (Aaron's Pro Cycling Team) over four minutes behind. Jacques-Maynes won ahead of Cyclingnews diarist Rory Sutherland. Jonathan Mumford (Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast) finished third.

In the women's crit it was High Road's Ina-Yoko Teutenberg who added another win to her season. Teutenberg beat the Team TIBCO duo of Brooke Miller and Lauren Franges to the line.

The men's crit was won by Lucas Sebastian Haedo (Colavita Sutter Home p/b Cookin). The famous last name almost requiring him to do well in a sprint, he beat Cody O'Reilly (Successful P/B Parkp). Haedo's team-mate Alejandro Borrajo finished third.
