 The USA Cycling National Road Championship week culminated on Sunday, June 25, with the men’s and women’s pro road races. Gray storms threatened the skies but the women’s race went off without a drop. The men weren’t so lucky, however, and despite a storm delay of an hour and a half, their race took place on wet roads, making the descent on Sherrod Hill quite slippery. 

Chloé Dygert (Canyon-SRAM) stormed to her second victory of the week in the women’s race while Quinn Simmons rode solo to take the win and claim the Stars and Stripes jersey in the men’s race.
