Brooke Miller wins bunch sprint at Manhattan Beach Grand Prix

Posted on 01. Jul, 2008 by in photos, race

It came down to a bunch sprint at the women’s race at the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix on Sunday June 29.  Tibco’s Brooke Miller outsprinted last year’s winner Laura Van Gilder (Cheerwine) and Jen McRae  (Advil/Chapstick) to take the win.

Attacks were tried during the 40-minute criterium on the bent-paperclip-shaped course but nothing was allowed to get away. ith 2 laps to go, New Zealander Alison Shanks (Jazz Apple) put out a dangerous move that quickly established 10 seconds to the field but Tibco’s Amber Rais chased her down and the finish came down to a bunch sprint.
