Elite Women - Day 2:
Caroline Mani (Raleigh Clement) captured her second consecutive victory at the Ellison Park Cyclo-cross Festival held in Rochester, New York on Sunday.
The Frechwoman soloed to the win by 13 seconds ahead of Canada’s Maghalie Rochette (Luna Pro) in second and American rider Meredith Miller (Noosa) took third.
Mani was apart of a leading group of riders that formed during the opening laps of the elite women’s race. The group also included Rochette and Miller along with Courtenay McFadden (GE Capital), Gabby Durrin (Neon Velo), Erica Zaveta (Amy D. Foundation), Crystal Anthony (Optum) and Kaitie Antonneau (Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld).
The group slowly began to fall apart and gaps opened up between the riders. A three-strong lead group formed between Mani, Rochette and Miller.
Mani proved to be the strongest rider on the tough climbs and opened the gap she needed to take her second win.
