It has been a summer of ups and downs for American Lauren Stephens. It began with the disappointing news that she had not made the final Olympic Games selection for the US road cycling team. That was followed two days later with an upbeat performance and repeat victory in the 100-mile race for Unbound Gravel. 

The TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank rider opted for the shorter of the two pro races in Emporia, Kansas, to save something for the US Pro Road National Championships two weeks later. That paid high dividends, as Stephens launched her attack in Knoxville, Tennessee on the final Sherrod Road climb and rode solo for more than 10 kilometres for the title.
