Breaks Dominate Tough Elmhurst Cycling Classic
The exciting course in Elmhurst west of Chicago provided plenty of excitement throughout the day, with breakaways escaping with regularity.
The pro men's race saw the biggest excitement as a breakaway dominated the night only to be caught by a chase group in the final laps, shredding the rest of the field. Original break member Ryan Atchison (Astellas) outsprinted the new arrivals to take the win ahead of Anthony Olson (SPBC) and Michael Chauner (Island 200).
In the women's race attacks also flew, but nothing would stick, until the final laps when a field that slowed to setup a field sprint allowed Gwen Inglis (Subaru) to sneak away and solo to the win ahead of Sam Schneider (TIBCO) Tina Pic (Fearless Femme).
Every rider commented how fast and hard the racing all week has been, but that the Elmhurst course took it to another level.
