I'll admit that I dropped the ball on updating this ...
So, a burst of bookkeeping before the Giro Rosa.

First up, the Tour of California.
Stages 1 & 3 were flatter than a ride through Dutch polders (seriously, the biggest obstacle was a bridge), and ended in sprints. #tibco Kendall Ryan won stage 1, #asa Arlenis Sierra took stage 3 - for both, it was their first WWT wins.

In between there was a mountain stage at Lake Tahoe to decide the GC:

And last year's overall runner-up #uhcwomen Katie Hall beat all comers, getting first over Daggett Summit, then shaking off #drops Tayler Wiles on the finishing climb to win solo. On the final day, her team controlled the peloton to give Hall her first California overall victory.
