Rally UHC Cycling Women Score Big Results At Redlands Classic

The first stop of USA Cycling’s Pro Road Tour finished as strongly as it had started for Rally UHC Cycling with Sara Poidevin claiming second from the breakaway on the final stage of the Redlands Bicycle Classic. Megan Jastrab collected the field sprint for fourth and Krista Doebel-Hickok won the Queen of the Mountain Competition en route to finishing fourth place overall.

“I am disappointed to miss out on the stage win but I gave it a good shot,” said Poidevin. “Overall it was a good day and a great week for the team. Everyone rode super well, we had strong communication and made decisions together on the road that kept us in contention for the GC and stage wins each day.”

Redlands was the first race since Kelly Catlin’s passing and the team came together in more ways than one. Kirsti Lay, Emma White, Erica Allar, director Joanne Kiesanowski, CFO Meagan Hazzout, and Managing Director Charles Aaron all traveled in to offer their support to the riders competing.

Instead of holding back and reacting on stages two and three, the team went on the offensive. Abby Mickey and Gillian Ellsay forced the breakaway on both stages while their teammates rode safely in the peloton. That advantage led to a stage win for Megan Jastrab on the Highland Circuit (shown above) and victory on the queen stage up Oak Glen Road for Krista Doebel-Hickok.

“Through hard times you see the character of the people around you,” said Team Director Zach Bell. “These women showed what they are made of and what they mean to each other this week. I knew this level was possible but not under these circumstances. It just confirms to me the value of our whole organization and the people in it.”
