LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY — Lyne Bessette (Canada) took the win in this large field, followed by Kristin Weber (Boulder Cycle Sport; USA) and Lisa Hudson (Feedback Sports; USA).

Bessette came back from a mechanical on the first lap while already in the lead, to catch and pass Kristin Weber and Lisa Hudson.  Weber was able to keep the gap to the Canadian reasonable, always in the hunt so that Bessette could never relax.  Hudson rode a strong race for third, finishing with room to spare.  Behind them the rest of the women’s field was scattered.
