Elevate-KHS's Sam Bassetti and Samantha Schneider (ISCorp) maintained their overall leads in Cyclingnews' Bell Lap series in the elite men and women's standings, respectively following the Downer Classic on June 30.

The men's race was won by Colin Strickland (Meteor X Giordana) over Cory Lockwood (Project Echelon) and Cesar Serna (Oklahoma Bicycle Project).

Even with none of the top-10 men in the rankings participating in the Tour of America's Dairyland race, the top of the leaderboard remained unchanged. Bassetti holds a one-point lead over Shane Kline (Smartstop), 70 points to 69, with John Murphy (Holowesko-Citadel) and Scott Law (Elevate-KHS) tied for third at 55 points.

In the women's field, Georgia Baker (Fearless Femme) jumped to third overall with her victory on Saturday over Skylar Schneider (Boels Dolmans) and Valentina Scandolara (Roxsolt Attaquer).

Thanks to her fourth place in the race, Josie Talbot (ISCorp) added to her tally in second place overall behind teammate Sam Schneider, who holds a commanding lead of 121 points to Talbot's 87. Baker is third with 70 points to Talbot's 60.

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 Gastown Grand Prix on July 7.
