Things started fast with attacks from Tibco, and they didn't stop. Emily, Cody, and Susannah each found themselves in potential breaks during the first 3 laps. The team also did an excellent job of contributing to the chase when there wasn't a Wells Fargo rider in the potential break. Heading into lap 4, a crash ended Cody's race and Susannah stopped to make sure all was ok with CCG. Jennie also decided to turn around and escorted Cody back to the car. Shortly after the crash, Emily flatted and with the follow cars back at the crash, she was left waiting for a wheel - leaving only Annie to finish the race.
Here is Annie riding next to National Road Champ Meredith Miller and surrounded by other Tibco riders. At the beginning of the last lap, a 4-women chase group formed after a few counter attacks and broke away. Annie missed this group as she had already covered numerous attacks. In the final sprint, Annie chose the side with better pavement but soon found herself in a massive headwind and finished 18th.

This event came a bit earlier in the racing calender, making it all the more painful and cold this year. Mara and Susannah opted to ride their TT bikes for the aero-advantage on the flats. Despite having the 2nd fastest time in the Women's P1/2 category, the two felt their TTT performance could be summed up in this song. When it was all over the two agreed they had a fabulous time together on the course and had some good laughs about some of the male teams that were not happy about being passed by two women.
