Highlighting the day’s action were eight road race champions who added a second 2015 Stars-and-Stripes jerseys of the week to their collections, as Melinda Berge (Tucson, Ariz./Summit Velo), David Burnett (Norwich, Conn.), Donna Ingle (Las Vegas, Nev.), Josef Lemire (San Francisco, Calif./ThirstyBear p/b Akamai), William Meyers (Golden, Colo./Schwab Cycles Racing Team) and Anne Valta (Santa Clara, Calif./ThirstyBear p/b Akamai) followed up their individual time trial wins from the previous day with respective road race wins.
Mixed 70+ tandem time trial champions Irina Axelrod-Angres (Reno, Nev.) and Rich Staley (Reno, Nev.) and mixed 90+ tandem time trial winners Gwen Inglis (Lakewood, Colo./Stages Cycling) and Michael Inglis (Lakewood, Colo./NINOX Racing Team) also followed up yesterday’s wins with tandem road race victories in the same divisions.
“We were together (with the group) that whole climb until that 1km to go, and that’s when we started attacking,” Michael Inglis said. “We finally got a gap. When you get to the 200 meters to go and you’ve got a 100-meter gap, that’s when you’re like, ‘OK, we’re going to get this.'"
“I kept looking back to watch the gap, and it was slowly growing,” Gwen Inglis added. “We really couldn’t relax until the end.”
The remaining road race divisions compete Friday at Snowbasin Resort, as the men’s 70+, 90+, 110+ and mixed 110+ tandem divisions will open competition, followed by women’s 35-44 and men’s 35-49 divisions.
