Tina Pic (Fearless Femme) and Brad White (UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling) won the elite criteriums at the Wilmington Grand Prix on Saturday in Delaware. The races were a part of the National Racing Calendar (NCC), a series that showcases the nation’s top criterium racers.

Going into the fifth round, Carlos Alzate (UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling) led the elite men’s series ahead of Daniel Holloway (Athlete Octane) and Isaac Howe (Team SmartStop), after Sunny King Criterium, Charlotte-Belmont Omnium, Winston-Salem Classic Criterium and the Dana Piont Grand Prix.

Coryn Rivera (UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling) led the elite women’s series ahead of her teammate Alison Powers and Erica Allar (Colavita-Fine Cooking) after the first three rounds, which did not include the Dana Point Grand Prix.

The peloton lined up on Market Street, the start of a 1.6km, figure-8 circuit. They headed north on Market Street then took a right onto 10th Street, left onto King Street, right onto 11th Street, right onto French Street, right onto 10th Street, left onto King Street, right onto 5th Street and a right turn back onto Market Street toward the start/finish line.

White won the bunch sprint in the men’s race ahead of Andres Alzate (Champion System-Stan’s NoTubes) and Bobby Lea (B.Lea Coaching).

The women’s peloton galloped to the finish line intact where Pic, a veteran sprinter, out-kicked Allar and Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom p/b Pink Siren).

"The Wilmington Grand Prix continues to be one of the premier criterium races in 
the nation," said USA Cycling’s VP of National Events, Micah Rice. "Racers love the 
technical nature of the course and the enthusiastic crowds that greet them. We were thrilled to feature the Wilmington Grand Prix on our National Criterium Calendar 
for the second straight year."
