Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank Captain Lauren Stephens: Her journey to her 9th Joe Martin Stage Race

Lauren Stephens began racing in college in 2009.

Stephens won a national race, the Charlotte Presbyterian Criterium, ahead of a powerful field of sprinters. The result prompted Jackson to invite Stephens to race the Tour of California time trial.
