|Optum's set-up before the Sunny King Criterium|
After several attacks and counter attacks there was one break that ultimately stayed away. Jade, Emma and Annie (half of the team) rode the break while Courteney, Anna and I did what we could to manage the peloton. We scored one prime in the pack and Annie brought one home from the break.
Although the break came dangerously close to being reeled in, the girls in the peloton just couldn't seem to get the job done, which is what we wanted.

Jade just barely missed the victory but landed on the second step of the podium thanks to some excellent Optum teamwork. Next race: Foothills Road Race
