May 01, 2014 (Silver City, NM) – In today’s Stage 2 75-mile Inner Loop Road Race, Carmen Small (DNA Cycling p/b K4) took the win over Team TIBCO to the Top’s Jo Kiesanowski in a close two-up sprint with Lauren Stephens also TIBCO in 3rd ahead of the main group. Canada’s Jasmin Glaesser (Team TIBCO to the Top) placed 7th while Lex Albrecht (TWENTY16 Pro Cycling) was 10th.

Several attacks marked the day’s racing, but no breaks were successful. At 104 kilometers into the race, a 10 kilometer climb to a Queen of the Mountains marker made for some hard racing.

At 4 kilometers to go, the reduced group was all together and the attacks began but nothing stayed away and at 1 kilometer to go, Team TIBCO took to the front.  Small attacked with 500 meters to go and got a gap, securing the stage win. Stephens then jumped to bridge to Kiesanowski who took 2nd while Stephens claimed 3rd.

Nicolai Brochner earned a big win for the Bissell Development Team besting Eric Young (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) in second and Travis McCabe (Team SmartStop) in third on the 121.6km/76-mile on Stage 2.

Canada’s Rob Britton (Team SmartStop) placed 13th and sits 5th overall while teammate Zach Bell placed 23rd. The Tour of the Gila continues on May 2 with the Dan Potts Memorial Tyrone Time Trial, a 25.84km/16.15-mile individual time trial (ITT) on Stage 3.
