Zawacki laps field to win Delray Twilight

Ben Zawacki (Team Mountain Khakis/SmartStop) and Erica Allar (RideClean/PatentIt.com) claimed the first victories of the 2012 USA CRITS Championship Series at Saturday evening's Delray Twilight in Delray Beach, Florida.

Zawacki took his win in the 80km elite men's race after he, Oscar Clark (United Health Care of Georgia pb 706 Project) and Yosvany Falcon (Wonderful Pistachios) lapped the field with just 13 laps remaining. That move, and the strong support of Zawacki’s Team Mountain Khakis/SmartStop teammates for the remainder of the race, assured the young rider’s success.

Allar, who’s known for her formidable sprint, bided her time throughout the evening and waited until the last corner of the 40km women’s event to launch herself to her latest USA CRITS win. Allar outkicked Debbie Milne (Absolute Racing) and Courtney Lowe (Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) at the line.

Allar, who was the overall series champion in 2011, will now take the USA CRITS leader's jersey to her adopted home town of Tucson, Arizona for the next round: the Athlete Octane Old Pueblo Grand Prix on March 17th.

Yosvany Falcon will start in the men's leader's jersey, having gained a 13-point advantage over Zawacki during the course of the Delray Twilight.
