Zirbel takes men's NRC lead

Despite missing out on victory at the weekend's Fitchburg Longsjo Classic, Tom Zirbel (Bissell) moved into USA Cycling's National Racing Calendar lead. The rider from Boulder, Colorado holds a 17 point lead over Sebastian Haedo from Colavita-Sutter Home. Alison Powers (Team Type 1) continues to lead the women's individual standings over Kristin Armstrong (Cervelo TestTeam), who has contested her final race on home soil and will likely drop down the order as the season progresses.

Zach Bell (Kelly Benefit Strategies) won the men's pro overall in the USA Cycling National Racing Calendar's 16th event, the Fitchburg Longsjo Classic. Evelyn Stevens (Team Lip Smacker) pulled out the women's pro overall victory in Fitchburg. Without claiming a stage victory, both Bell and Stevens used consistent performances to grab the overall after four stages.
