In yesterday's double stage of a road race and time trial, the Health Net-Maxxis team merely passed the lead around themselves with Karl Menzies taking out the field sprint followed by Rory Sutherland winning the uphill time trial. In today's final criterium, the two Aussies were at it again - again with Menzies winning in a field sprint and Sutherland finishing third to claim the overall title.

"We took the front on lap one and stayed on the front the whole time," said director sportif Jeff Corbet. "The strategy was pretty straight up. We defended at this race last year. Tim and Kyle were involved in that work last year and felt confident we could do it again."

Many teams tried to crack the Health Net train throughout the race, including Toyota-United with two riders near the top of the overall. "I tried to break their composure, but they kept it together," said Chris Baldwin (Toyota-United) who finished second in the time trial and ended up third overall. "I just have to give respect to those guys. It's a course where it's much easier on the front, and it gets harder each guy you go back - and they controlled the front."

Baldwin said he was disappointed at not winning the time trial on Saturday, but finds that the level of racing in the US is reflected by the results. "I expected to have an even better day than that, but it was still good," he explained. "I feel like I am on top of my game, but there are some great guys in the U.S. this year - like Rory Sutherland and Ben Jacques-Maynes. It's going to be a competitive year."

Health Net-Maxxis put all hands on deck today to get the overall sewn up, and it showed in the closing laps. "We let some moves have a little rope and anything we didn't like we brought it back," said Corbet. "Everybody took some cracks at us, especially the Colombians. They attacked us a lot and didn't hesitate - they really gave us a run. We used up all our matches - at the bell lap we only had Sean Milne able to pull for Rory and Karl. But it worked out to be just enough."

Carroll bookends wins for overall title

Kat Carroll (Aaron's Pro) built upon her strong win in the opening stage of Joe Martin by winning the closing criterium and taking the overall win. "This was the first stage race I raced two years ago, so it's good to come back and get the win," she told Cyclingnews. "I seem to be on a bit of a roll right now!"

On a roll indeed. Carroll won the Athens Twilight criterium two weeks ago and took third overall in the USA Crits Southeast Series.

In today's race the Aaron's team had a proactive strategy in mind to take the win. "It's a challenging crit - probably the hardest one we do all year," said Carroll. "But it helped us out, with the heat it wore everybody down. We wanted to be more aggressive than defensive - we had the green light to race."

"Chrissy Ruiter was off the front for several laps but got caught with one to go," she added. "It was fine for us because she was far enough down on GC. As we approached the last corner, my teammate sarah came through the last corner and delivered me with a perfect lead out. It was about the happiest I've been to see her in a long time!"

For now, Carroll will skip Tri-Peaks this weekend to get some well deserved rest and relaxation. "I did the whole crit series so I get to go home and rest the soul," Carroll confirmed.
