Stage Review

The women’s race started out as a rebellion with younger lesser known riders launching an early breakaway. The early breakaway was marked by the strongest team in the race, T-Mobile, who put one rider in the break as a sentry while the overall contenders stayed back. When that rider, former world champion Mari Holden, suffered a flat tire the entire race changed. The major contenders for the overall crown including Tina Pick (Quark), Krisitin Armstrong (T-Mobile) and Christine Thorburn (Webcor Builders) all surged forward and closed down the three-minute gap in a group of eight in the final 20 miles T-Mobile sent Germany’s Ina Teutenberg on a solo attack that nearly gave her a one minute advantage over the field. 

As they approached the final climb to Laguna Seca, Teutenberg’s advantage had melted to just 10 seconds. Then her teammate Kristin Armstrong, the 2004 Sea Otter champion, made the decisive move. When she reached Laguna Seca Armstrong carried a minute advantage over her nearest competitors Pic and Thorburn. Armstrong finished alone to win her second Sea Otter Classic. Pic, who wore the leader’s jersey finished second. Thorburn got third. Teutenberg settled for fourth while Grace Fleury the only survivor of the only breakaway finished fifth.
