After Jelly Belly’s Jonathan Chodroff won the opening time trial Friday at the Tucson Bicycle Classic, GC results were not altered at all following Saturday’s road race after a crash in a preceding event neutralized the pro men’s field.
“There was a crash in the Cat. 4’s at the finish — nothing too serious just a few bodies across the road — so they had to neutralize our race,” said Fly V Australia’s Phil Zajicek, who finished second to Chodroff in the TT. “The finish was at the end of a 1km downhill. It was a bummer, but we’re glad that everyone is okay.”
The pro women’s race went ahead on schedule, however. Cara Bussell took the stage win ahead of Rebecca Much and Gwen Inglis.
Friday’s time trial winner Susannah Gordon continues to lead the overall ahead of Much and Tayler Wiles.
The Tucson Bicycle Classic concludes Sunday with a circuit race.
