UnitedHealthcare did it again on Saturday, sweeping the men’s podium at the George Kaiser Family FDN Brady Village Criterium, as Theresa Cliff-Ryan (Fearless Femme-Pure Energy) likewise scored a second straight victory in the women’s race.
The Brady Village crit was the second stop on the Saint Francis Tulsa Tough race weekend.
Luke Keough took the victory on the L-shaped circuit in 1:21:41, with teammates Carlos Alzate and Karl Menzies rounding out the podium in the same time.
The women’s race was less of a sure thing. Alison Powers (Now and Novartis) was off the front and nearly held her advantage to the line, but the bunch swept her up in the final few meters and Cliff-Ryan hit the line first, in 1:01:03.
Jacquelyn Crowell (Exergy Twenty16) and Erica Allar (Care4cycling-Solomon Corp,) followed for second and third in the same time.
Tulsa Tough racing continues Sunday with the River Parks Criterium. VeloNews.com is providing live streaming video of the day’s action.
