2018 Tour of California: Ryan Win’s Stage 1 of the Women’s Race

CALIFORNIAN KENDALL RYAN WINS STAGE ONE OF WOMEN’S THREE-DAY RACE

AMGEN TOUR OF CALIFORNIA WOMEN’S RACE EMPOWERED WITH SRAM

As the women’s race kicked off today, the anticipated sprint to the finish ended with Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank delivering their 2015 National Champion (Criterium) Kendall Ryan, (born Thousand Oaks, Calif. / resides Ventura, Calif.) to the stage victory.

“Today I just was able to surf the bunch and stay hidden from the wind and my teammates just made sure that I was protected and in the right spot in the end,” said Ryan, whose sister Alexis Ryan is also in the race with Canyon//SRAM. “All the hard work and heartbreak and all the suffering I’ve gone through just finally paid off… It’s just huge for me – I’ve never won yellow, I’ve never been on a stage like this before and won a race like this… You’re with the best of the best in the entire world and everyone shows up with their A-game and everyone shows up with their top team for this race, and you have to do everything right.”

Next over the line were Rally Cycling’s Emma White (Duanesburg, New York) and Wiggle High5’s former track World Champion and 2012 Olympic Omnium Bronze Medalist Annette Edmondson (AUS).

The opening stage for the women’s race returns to Elk Grove, which made its first race appearance last year, for an 80-mile day with two Sprints and no Queen of the Mountain climbs (QOMs) – a very fast and flat route that delivered the expected bunch sprint to the finish.

Just over halfway into Stage 1 presented by Visit California, a breakaway including BePink’s Lisa Morzenti (ITA) and Hagens Berman | Supermint Pro Cycling’s Whitney Allison (Fort Collins, Colo.). Allison spent solo time off the front to earn the Breakaway from Heart DiseaseTM Most Courageous Rider Jersey before being reabsorbed by the peloton as they began arranging to deliver their sprinters to the finish with about 6 miles left to ride.
