ATOC Women’s Time Trial – Powered by SRAM

McGrath would power to third. She is a rising star on the women’s scene.

SRAM once again leads the support for more women’s cycling as title sponsor of the Tour of California Women’s Time Trial Race, powered by SRAM, that took place in the midst of the Amgen Tour of California (ATOC) men’s race. For the third straight year, Olympians, World Champions, National Champions competed in what was a surprisingly difficult 19.6 mile (31.5k) time trial.

The all-star field, by invitation only, started mid-day to stiff crosswinds on a course that would challenge every aspect of a rider’s skills. The biggest obstacle comes at the very end where the final 5k tips upwards to the finish, with the final 3k averaging nearly 10%. Ultimately Evelyn Stevens (Specialized-lululemon) – SRAM RED and Zipp equipped – took the win ahead of Alison Powers (Now/Novartis for MS), followed by Kristin McGrath (Exergy-TWENTY16). The top 10 all rode SRAM RED.
