The Americans swept the men's and women's races at the 6th running of the Univest Grand Prix, with Ted Huang coming in first in 3:56:35 followed by Kevin Bouchard-Hall ( and Matthew Svatek (Team five seconds later. The 100 mile race was contested by an international field of 171 cyclists from 15 nations.

Throughout the men's race, the French Team dominated with three teammates exchanging the lead, but when the race reached the final laps, Huang bridged the gap to the leaders and sprinted away, staying away for the win.

32 year-old Huang was coming off an excellent 12th place finish at last weekend's T-Mobile International in San Francisco. Bouchard-Hall on the other hand had been preparing for the Univest GP in Belgium. Svatek recently made the cross-over from cross-country skiing and cements his reputation as a newcomer-to-watch with his performance.

The women's race was won in a sprint by Ashley Kimmet (Coalvita Women's Elite Cycling Team) in 1:37:00, with local favorite Laura Van Gilder (Team Saturn) crossing the line second and Liza Rachetto (ICO) in third.

The women raced fast and in a pack with former track champion Sarah Uhl, Team Saturn, winning Leidy's Sprint Competition while setting up her teammate Van Gilder. Kimmet proved to be the strongest on the 200 meter climb finish after 20 laps of a 2.6 kilometer circuit.
