The second day of racing at the 2021 US Pro Road Championships saw the women’s team tackle the criterium event. Holly Breck, Madeline Bemis, Heidi Franz, and Krista Doebel-Hickok each took turns animating the race before unleashing sprinter Katie Clouse for the finale. Clouse avoided a late crash to finish in seventh overall and earn the silver medal in the under-23 classification. The team’s CCO Sam Wiebe was on location and delivered an in-depth gallery of the experience.
Two of the five riders opted for a trainer warm up.
