2010 Winning Results

Alejandro Borrajo (Jamis-Sutter Home) capped off four days of racing with victory in the third and final stage of the Redlands Bicycle Classic as Fly V Australia’s Ben Day took the overall title. Day celebrated winning the first NRC event of the season by the slimmest of margins – a half second ahead of Ben Jacques-Maynes (Bissell) and one second to Will Routely (Jelly Belly). The all-rounder climbed into the yellow leader’s jersey in the prologue and maintained his lead with the support of his seven teammates over the course of three stages. Evelyn Stevens turned herself inside out to make it an HTC-Columbia blackout on the final day in Redlands after attacking a nine-woman breakaway with two kilometres to go and holding her lead into the finish line ahead of teammate and overall race winner Ina Yoko-Teutenberg and Carmen Small (Colavita-Baci). Teutenberg won her second consecutive title at the Redlands Bicycle Classic ahead of Katharine Carroll (Peanut Butter & Co TWENTY12) and Alexis Rhodes (Team Vera Bradley Foundation).

2011 Winning Results

Cole Housescored a rookie win Sunday at the Redlands Bicycle Classic. House took the bunch sprint ahead of a decimated peloton at the close of the Sunset Road Race, while his Realcyclist.com teammate Francisco Mancebo squeaked out of town with the final leader’s jersey. In a hectic final stage along the tough Sunset Ridge circuit, Bissell’s Ben Jacques-Maynes took second and Mancebo third in the early time bonus, just six miles into the race. With that effort, Jacques-Maynes moved into the virtual race lead. Amber Neben (HTC-Highroad) captured her third overall title at the Redlands Bicycle Classic and attributed the victory to the hard work of her teammates. She finished the race ahead of Erinne Willock (TIBCO-To the Top) in second and her teammate Evelyn Stevens in third.

2012 Winning Results

Patrick Bevin took his third straight win Sunday during the final stage of the Sunset Road Race at the Redlands Bicycle Classic and sprinted within two seconds of winning the overall classification. But Kenda/5-Hour Energy’s Phil Gaimon had enough time on the final closing downtown circuit to save his overall lead and take his first NRC stage race win. Phil’s Yellow jersey from day 1 never left his shoulders as his fast Prologue would end up being the difference and standing up until Sunday’s conclusion. The women’s race for the overall was nearly as close as the men’s, with Powers falling just three seconds short of taking away Megan Guarnier’s lead after winning the day’s three-second QOM time bonus and earning a 10-second bonus for the stage win. But Guarnier started the day knowing that even if Powers won all the time bonuses and she got none, she could take the overall just by finishing with the same time as the Now and Novartis for MS rider.

Stage Winners:
– Prologue: Phil Gaimon (Kenda/5 Hour Energy)/Megan Guarnier (Team Tibco/To the Top)
– Stage 1: Patrick Bevin (Bissell Pro Cycling)/Loren Rowney (Specialized Lululemon)

2013 Winning Results

Francesco Mancebo (5hr Energy p/b Kenda) was looking to return to the top spot of the podium after coming up short last year. Chad Haga(Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies) had the slimmest of margins lead going into the final stage leading by a mere 5 seconds. Andres Corrales (Elbowz Racing p/b Boneshaker) had ridden out front for most of the day ahead of the field. Mancebo bridged across to Andres to build a 25 second gap over the field. That gap was more than enough time to take the Yellow Jersey from Chad Haga. The stage victory on Citrus Avenue in front of the cheering crowds was the cherry on top. On the Women’s side Alison Powers Yellow jersey seemed more secure as she had won the first three stages of the classic and was holding 52 second lead going into Sunday’s stage. Mara Abbott was the aggressive rider of the afternoon as she was able to make a move that got her in a solo move finally winning the stage by 21 seconds. The yellow jersey group never let the gap put Alison’s overall victory in jeopardy. Mara Abbott (Exergy Twenty 16) stayed away long enough to seal the stage win. The final women podium remained the same as Alison Powers (NOW and Novartis for MS) captured the Classic victory going wire to wire in yellow from day one by 54 seconds. Tayler Wiles (Specialized LULULEMON) 2nd and Rhae Shaw (Vanderkitten) 3RD.

Stage Winners:
– Stage 1 ITT: Chad Haga (Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies)/Alison Powers (NOW and Novartis for MS)

2014 Winning Results

In keeping with the growing tradition of the Redlands Bicycle Classic — “Where Legends Are Born” — Hincapie Sportswear’s Joey Rosskopf sizzled to a stalwart final stage triumph in the Sunset Road Race to beat Bissell’s cyclist James Oram by a mere six seconds.

Rosskopf then took off for Europe in search of bigger races, bigger purses and bigger headlines, never having returned to Redlands.

This same year, with an array of women’s stars in a strong field, Lululemon’s Tayler Wiles produced a 5-day assortment of consistent rides to beat United Healthcare’s Mara Abbott by 29 seconds to win the yellow jersey.

Wiles didn’t win a single stage, but produced top finishes each day to prove herself as the best overall cyclist.

A curious development in the men’s overall team G.C. (top 4 cyclists’ combined times) was that Hincapie, backed by Rosskopf’s winning ride, edged Hagens Berman by a mere 36 seconds.

2015 Winning Results

Here’s the way it works any time U.S. cycling stars Amber Neben and Mara Abbott show up at an event like Redlands: Which rider can withstand the most pain and retain enough team support to ride away with the yellow jersey?

Abbott, racing for L.A. Sweat, edged Neben, who was wearing Visit Dallas colors, by 24 seconds. Consolation for Neben: Visit Dallas copped team general classification honors.

Speaking of team G.C., the pain in Gavion Manion’s 24-second loss to Optum’s Phillip Gaimon, in the men’s overall chase, might have been eased a bit when his Jelly Belly squad pulled out team honors.

2016 Winning Results

The outcomes were close, powerful and historic.

Close, as in an 8-second gap in the overall 4-team General Classification duel, eventually won by Axeon Hagens Berman with Silber, Rally and Holowesko just mere ticks behind.

Powerful as in Matteo Dal-Cin men’s yellow jersey holding off an array of challengers, namely Neilson Powless, Travis McCabe, Ulises Castillo and a couple handfuls of strong climbers in the field.

Historic in that Kristin Armstrong-Savola, a longtime Redlands competitor and past individual time Olympic gold medalist, scored a 32-second win over an injured Mara Abbott — then went off to nail down another gold medal in South America later that summer.

2017 Winning Results

She came in as the reigning world’s time trial champion, but not even Redlands time trial champion Amber Neben could hold off a strong United Healthcare squad that attacked in the road races that followed. It eventually produced Ruth Winder as the women’s champion.

Neben’s second place finish trailed Winder by over a minute.

With Spaniard Francisco Mancebo in the field, it seemed like everyone else was battling for second place behind the Tour de France veteran.

So when T.J. Eisenhardt emerged as the Oak Glen Road Race victor in the mountains, that was the guy Mancebo and everyone else had to chase down. They never caught Eisenhardt, who scored a significant 44-second win over Rally’s Brandon McNulty.

2018 Winning Results

The way Thomas Revard was telling his story after winning the mountain stage to Oak Glen, Hagens-Bermans teammates Sean Bennett or Will Barta were supposed to take the overall yellow jersey for the 2018 Redlands Bicycle Classic. He was supposed to be just a support rider.

But there was Revard, out in front at the end of that ruinous climb to Oak Glen Village. His teammates, Bennett who wound up third overall, and Barta, taking fifth, just wound up riding support for the 21-year-old.

United Healthcare powerhouse cyclist Katherine Hall had plenty of support in holding off riders from Rally, TIBCO, Twenty20, Hagens-Berman and 50-something French cyclist Edwige Pitel, who pedaled to third place overall, Hall winning by 25 seconds.

The 2018 edition was missing something — the prologue time trials in Big Bear. Race officials waited and waited before calling off the Big Bear Lake time trial due to inclement weather (snow).

Revard and Hall won the 2018 Classic by powering through the Oak Glen climb, the Highland circuit race, a downtown Redlands Criterium and the traditional Sunset Road Race. It was enough mileage to separate the champions from the rest of the field.

Some cyclists were quoted saying, in effect, that the missing time trials didn’t make a difference.

Footnote: It was the final Redlands Classic for Team Jelly Belly, a Danny Van Haute-trained squad around for over two decades dating back to the early 1990s. The team lost its sponsorship, killing off one of USA cycling’s top programs.
