North Star GP: Winder racks up another win in Mankato

UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling's Ruth Winder displayed her remarkable speed for the second time at the North Star Grand Prix, outsprinting North Memorial race leader Emma White (Rally Cycling) and Marlies Mejías (Shimano Weber) out of a reduced field in the 61 mile (98km) finale of the penultimate stage held at North Mankato.

Winder's result moves her up to third place overall, tied for time with second place Mejías. White stays in the lead by four seconds going into tomorrow's Stillwater Criterium, which promises to be a GC showdown.

"Towards the second half of the race, we were pushing for a break with Rushlee (Buchanan), who got away with a few other riders with three laps of the final circuit to go," Winder said. "They got a decent gap and it was good for us. With a lap to go, Rally really started to chase and the peloton made the catch the final time up the climb. Tayler Wiles threw down a great attack that took myself, Emma and Marlies to the line. Tayler led me out fabulously and I sprinted to the win."

White has all but sealed her lead in the Greg Lemond best young rider jersey after today's stage. Tayler Wiles (UHC) took advantage of the four Shimano queen of the hill opportunities to pad her lead in that competition and Mejías moves into the Jack Link's sprinter jersey. Ariane Bonhomme (Cyclery) continues to be the Diamondback best amateur and Ashlee Ankudinoff (North Memorial) won the Ellen Watters most aggressive jersey today for her performance in the break.
