Team TIBCO – Silicon Valley Bank Captain, Lauren Stephens, wins Winston Salem GP!

Lauren Stephens scored her second major win in two weeks today following her Gatineau time trial win last Friday. Stephens’ win was made possible by terrific teamwork throughout the race. Teammate Ingrid Drexel (Mexican National time trial and road race champion) was part of a break of four riders who got away with three laps to go. The break was caught on the last lap and that was the cue for Lauren and three other riders to counter attack with just a few kilometers to go. It was on the last QOM climb that Stephens attacked and left the rest of the break behind to solo in for the win. Ingrid finished 8th after her aggressive race, and Lex Albrecht finished 6th for Team TIBCO-Silicon V

Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank Captain, Lauren Stephens wins Chrono Gatineau

Lauren Stephens stormed to victory in the individual time trial in Gatineau, Quebec on Friday.

How it unfolded: With 11 of 14 laps of the 2.8-mile circuit still to be raced, race leader Amber Neben and QOM leader Katie Hall were off the front in an 11-rider group that included three Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank riders.
