PBS women’s team racing UCI stage race
This is the first year the Joe Martin stage race in Fayetteville, Arkansas is a UCI ranked road event and Portland Bicycle Studio has a full squad racing it.
The TT was this morning, won by Lauren Stephens (Tibco-SVB). UHCprocycling has 6 riders in top 10. 19 riders are divided by less than 1 minute after the TT. The top 60 women are within 2 minutes on GC.
Annie Usher (Portland Bicycle Studio) is in 32nd @ -1:08 a solid GC position we can improve on. Annie finished just ahead of Beth Ann Orton (Visit Dallas) and the 2 are the top Portland women on GC. We’ve got a lot to be proud of!
I’m posting a lot of photos and videos on my personal social media sites and you can follow the race at #JMSR2015 and @joemartinstage
Tomorrow is the first road stage at 2:30pm CST. Thunderstorms and rain/wind are expected on this hilly/punchy course with a downtown finish. Stay tuned!
