Van Heerden takes field sprint for win

The atmosphere at the Shorewood Criterium was electric with more than 6,000 fans lining the café and bar strip. Additionally, a good number of residents had set up outside their homes along the residential streets to watch the action unfold; they were not disappointed as over 100 pro riders zipped around the 1.3-mile course at an average speed of 30 mph in the men's event. The speeds were kept high due to the shortening of the race by 30 minutes, fire-engines needed to come onto the course to put out a fire in one of the apartments, and the high number of cash primes towards the end.

Adam Mills (Mercy Cycling) said, "It was fun, fast and rough like a good Superweek race should be. Strangest thing happened, though. There was a fire in an apartment on the course during the race. Full halt for the race until all was resolved, and go again! The best thing about the race being shortened is that all the primes and points sprints are compressed, which makes for a really tough race. To make matters even more interesting, there are a lot of new guys that are way too tense here."
