Lisa Cordova (Live Play Real Estate) was the surprise winner of the Saturday evening stage 4 criterium at the Redlands Bicycle Classic. Olivia Cummins (LUX-CTS) finished second ahead of Rylee McMullen (Instafund La Prima).

“We’re a small team, so really just the last few laps it was trying to follow the right wheels," Cordova said. "I knew where Heidi Franz (Instafund LaPrima) was. I knew she was going to be up there, so I tried to stick to her wheel for a while and then last lap it was just trying to get to the very front in the last three corners and go for it.” 

Emily Marcolini (3T/Q+M) finished in the pack to keep her minute's lead over Diana Peñuela (DNA Pro Cycling) heading into Sunday's final stage. Maddy Ward (InstaFund) is third at 2:31.
