Small claims women's Tour of California circuit race

Carmen Small (Specialized-lululemon) took the bunch sprint victory at the Women’s Invitational Circuit Race on Sunday. She caught and passed Coryn Rivera (UnitedHealthcare), who initiated the sprint, at the line. Brianna Walle (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) placed third.

"The first half of the race was animated," Small said. "I definitely felt the wind through the start-finish and it was a long sprint, so I had to keep that in mind coming into the last lap. UHC and Colavita did a good job of bringing things back. We were pretty aggressive and that was our game plan going into the race. I was supposed to save it for the second half and get ready for the sprint."
