Neben soloed ahead of ahead of Coryn Rivera (Sunweb) and Ruth Winder (UnitedHealthcare).

“The break had been away and it was really quiet in the back and I thought ‘I didn’t know if anyone was going to chase this back’ and then it started,” said Neben “Then we caught the majority of the break except for the one rider, and as soon as it sat up, I knew for me I wasn’t going to be able to stay with those girls if they attacked on that short little climb, so I had to go early and I just went for it.”

Neben held off her breakaway companions; Jennifer Tetrick (TIBCO-SVB), Abigail Mickey (Colavita/Bianchi), Monica Volk (Rally Cycling Women) Janelle Cole (UnitedHealthcare) and Holly Breck (Sho-Air TWENTY20) and Monica Volk (Rally Cycling Women)
