Rachel Langdom (Amy D Foundation) won stage 4 of the Redlands Bicycle Classic, beating points classification leader Lily Williams (Hagens Berman/Supermint) in a sprint to the line on the Downtown Redlands criterium. Helena Coney (Instafund LaPrima Elite Women's Cycling Team) rounded out the podium.

The trio made up part of a six-woman breakaway group that managed to stay away until the end and contest the sprint among themselves, despite never being allowed a lead of more than 30 seconds by the Rally UHC-controlled peloton.

Langdon pushed hard around the final corner and only Williams could get near her as she charged towards the line. Williams could, however, console herself by moving up to second overall thanks to bonus seconds obtained during the stage.

"It really doesn't [get better than that]," said Langdon after her emotional win. "It took a moment to settle in.

"Hagens were driving the break pretty hard and I've tended to get overzealous in breakaways before. They both [Williams and her Hagens Berman teammate Lindsay Goldman] did the lion's share of the work to make the break stick and power to them because it did but I just had to play smart.

"It dangled. From around six laps to go I thought that we were going to get caught. I was in the move last year that got caught with two laps to go and seemed to be playing out the same kind of way."
