Lauren Stephens (Tibco-SVB) won the second stage of the Virtual Tour of the Gila on Saturday. The American all-rounder won the circuit race ahead Andrea Ramirez (Agolico BMC) and Caroline Murray (USA).
Ramirez was the first to launch a late-race attack in the closing few hundred metres, however, Stephens caught and passed her at the finish line to take the win.
The Virtual Tour of the Gila continues with stage 3 on Sunday, with racing for the men at 11:00 CDT and the women at 1:00PM CDT.
