The Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies rode to victory in the first ever Women US National Team-Time-Trial Gold Medal last weekend, capping a great weekend of racing for the team. 

The 6-woman team of Amy Charity (USA), Annie Ewart (CAN), Jasmin Glaesser (GER), Leah Kirchmann (CAN), Alison Tetrick (USA), and Brianna Walle (USA), was the last team on the starting ramp in Greenville (South Carolina, US) but the fastest to cover the 32.16km course. They crossed the finish line with a 34-seconds gap on Team UnitedHealthcare and 1 minute 17 seconds on Team TIBCO-SVB.

The weekend was really successful for the American team, a longtime SRAM partner, with three podiums:

-       Gold medal: Women - US National Team-Time-Trial Championships

-       Silver medal: Men- US National Team-Time-Trial Championships

-       Bronze medal: Brianna Walle - National Criterium Championships

Congratulations to all riders and to the entire staff!

Well done Ladies!
