Kelly Wiliamson Wins & Durata Athletes Shine at Williamsburg Rev3 Tri

Williamson relied on her renowned threshold run power to methodically cut into Shapiro’s lead each kilometer and eventually caught Shapiro in the last kilometer. Shapiro hung on tough for second and Lauren Goss rounded out the podium in third.

“I have learned over the years that for me races are often decided on the bike; minimizing my losses. I knew that I would likely lose some time yesterday at Williamsburg but I just remained calm and patient,” Williamson said. “I knew 9 minutes on the run would be very tough but I just put my head down and took it one mile at a time; tried to run strong but not get emotional, and know that a lot would be decided the final couple of miles.”

Jessica Jacobs and James Cotter also earned Top 10 finishes with outstanding perfomances.

Chad Haga Wins Opening TT at 2013 Redlands Cycling Classic

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (VN) — Before the start of the Redlands Bicycle Classic this week, Chad Haga of Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies topped everyone’s list of favorites for the opening time trial. His strong ride in Thursday’s race against the clock lived up to expectations, and Haga now sits in the catbird seat in the race for overall victory.

“It’s a big win, but it is not unexpected,” Haga said. “I was expecting that I was going to do it.”

He beat out teammate Tom Zirbel — no slouch in the time trial — by six seconds. Haga rode hard from the start despite the headwind. There was not much in the way of tactics to his effort, which earned him the second National Racing Calendar (NRC) leader’s jersey of his career.

“I knew that I didn’t want to save much for the return leg because of the headwind out,” Haga said. “So I just suffered all the way out and emptied the tanks on the way back.”
