Andrew Bajadali (Kelly Benefit Strategies) outsprinted breakaway companion Brian Jensen (Tradewind Energy/Trek Stores) to win the 84-mile Tour de Winghaven on Sunday in O'Fallon, Missouri. Charles Huff (Jelly Belly) took third place honours ahead of Emile Abraham (Aerocat Cycling Team) 52 seconds later.

Jensen was part of a break containing Jeffrey Schroetlin (ABD Cycling Team) and David Henderson (Columbia Bicycling Club) which had escaped the field five laps into the 28-lap NRC event. With three three-mile laps remaining, in sweltering mid-90 degree Fahrenheit heat, Bajadali bridged from a depleted peloton to the break and only Jensen could hold the Kelly Benefit Strategies rider's wheel. Bajadali dispatched of Jensen on the uphill finish to win his team's second NRC race of the season.

"Baj [Andrew Bajadali] is flying right now," Ken Mills, Kelly Benefit Strategies general manager, told Cyclingnews. "We just had four days of super hard, competitive racing in Portugal that really helped keep everyone at the top of their game. Baj really showed his return to form after breaking his scapula [at the Tour of the Gila]."

As a result of Jensen's extended time off the front in a break, he claimed the Tour de Winghaven's king of the mountains title.
