Mellow Mushroom's Laura Van Gilder outkicked the pack for the win in the women's race. The field was relatively small, and the attacks came fairly fast early on with TIBCO's Brooke Miller and others stringing out the pack. Eventually Mellow Mushroom's Kristen Lasasso got off the front and the field was content to let her dangle there until the finishing laps. It proved the right tactic for Mellow Mushroom as Laura Van Gilder was able to take the win and clinch the USA Crits overall crown.

I didn't stick around after the first couple of laps of the Men's race as I had plenty of photos to process from Interbike itself.
