Prestige Women's Series 2006
Webcor - Platinum comes from behind to claim the team title
Webcor-Platinum, in second place after the International Tour de Toona, overtook TEAm Lipton at the CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix to claim the team title in the Women's Prestige Cycling Series for the second year in a row. With two stages completed, Webcor-Platinum held three of the top five places in the CD&P Bermuda GP standings. These results became final when the imminent arrival of Hurricane Florence cut the racing short. The strong performances by these Webcor-Platinum riders in Bermuda were enough to secure the overall Series title.

Kristin Armstrong (TEAm Lipton) had developed an impressive lead in the Series individual standings after the International Tour de Toona. That lead held after Bermuda, even though Armstrong was away at Worlds, where she won the World Time Trial Championship. Teammate Kori Seehafer held onto second while Erinne Willock (Webcor-Platinum) took third.

Best Young Rider
Wilock's trip to Worlds may have cost her the lead in the Best Young Rider competition, a classification that she won in 2005. Katharine Carroll (Victory Brewing) came from second place to claim the Series Best Young Rider classification, thanks to a strong performance at the CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix. Willock held onto second while her teammate, Amber Rais, rounded out the top three.

Brooke Miller (PABW Powered by TIBCO) burst onto the National scene when she claimed a stage win and the Freewheel Bike Sprint classification at the Nature Valley Grand Prix in June. She successfully defended the Series sprinter jersey at the International Tour de Toona and held on at the CD&P Bermuda Grand Prix to take the Series win.

the Womenís Prestige Cycling Series
The Womenís Prestige Cycling Series began in 2004 with the goal of highlighting womenís racing by giving them a spotlight that they donít have to share with the men. The Series grew out of meetings that began in Minnesota in 2003 at the first Yoplait Womenís Cycling Summit Conference hosted at the Nature Valley Grand Prix. The Summits, now sponsored by Yoplait Nouriche, take place twice a year: at the Nature Valley Grand Prix in June and at the Interbike trade show in September.
