With a podium finish in the USA Cycling Pro Criterium Championships last week, Elevate-KHS rider Sam Bassetti surged to the top spot of Cyclingnews' Bell Lap series standings, surpassing previous leader Shane Kline (Smartstop) by a single point. John Murphy (Holowesko-Citadel), who was shut out in the championships, dropped to third overall in the men's rankings.

Bassetti has been a consistent performer in the series, having won a race in Tulsa Tough and finishing third in the Winston Salem Classic Criterium, another Tulsa Tough race and the US Pro championship. Kline scored top 10 finishes in Athens, the Armed Forces Cycling Classic and was second in the Harlem Skyscraper criterium, and won the Tour of Somerville.

Murphy, winner of the Athens Twilight, was second in the Crystal Cup and fourth in the Clarendon Cup races of the Armed Forces Cycling Classic.

On the women's side, Sam Schneider continues to be the most consistent performer, netting four victories (in Athens, Tulsa Tough, Winston-Salem and Harlem) and adding to her tally with a seventh place finish in the US Pro criterium championship behind surprise winner Leigh Ann Ganzar.

Schneider holds a 46-point lead over teammate Josie Talbot, with Laura van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom) in third.

Cyclingnews' Bell Lap point series highlights the most important, historic and challenging races on the criterium circuit from Athens Twilight to the finale in Atlantic City in September. Points are awarded to the top 10 men and women throughout the 19 races, and ties are decided on the number of first places, seconds, thirds and so on. The Bell Lap men's and women's titles will be awarded to the riders who score the most points over the course of the season in the final overall standings.

The next race in the series is the Tour of America's Dairyland - Downer Classic on June 30.
