Anthony wins Cycle-Smart International Day 1

Crystal Anthony (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) dominated the Cycle-Smart International elite women's UCI C2 event under sunny skies and unseasonably warm temperatures in Northampton, MA. Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom) narrowly outsprinted Arley Kemmerer (C3-Twenty20 Cycling Co.) for second place.

Anthony led the field into the steep, rooted run up on the first lap of the race and opened a gap of a few seconds by the time she remounted at the top. Caught out were Van Gilder, Kemmerer, Amanda Carey (Stan's NoTubes Elite), Natasha Elliott (Rare Vos Racing/Van Dessel), and's Maghalie Rochette and her 16 year old teammate, Emma White.
