MIXED RESULTS FOR KODAK GALLERY/SIERRA NEVADA AT OAK GLEN

Redlands, Calif. (April 1, 2018) - Kodak EasyShare Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Glen Mitchell said after today's second stage of the Redlands Classic, "we had a good ride but not a good result," and that is a fair summary of the team's performance in the 107-mile race finishing at the top of Oak Glen.

Indeed, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Hayden Godfrey started off the day by winning the first two points sprints, 8 and 42 miles into the stage.

83 miles into the stage, Dominique Perras' attack at the third climbing points location formed a group of around 15 riders that also included Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Glen Mitchell and soon caught an earlier move of six riders.

On the long grind up San Timoteo Canyon Road, the group of seventeen proved to be unwieldy, despite Mitchell's and Perras' efforts to keep the pace consistent.

Nearing the bottom of the six-mile climb up Oak Glen, Ben Jacques-Maynes was the victim of two untimely flat tires, but was able to chase back after each. However, those efforts took their toll, as did that of working his way back towards the front of the field.

On the lower slopes, Mitchell went off the front again, this time in an eight-rider group that included Scott Moninger (Health Net-Maxxis) and Danny Pate (Jelly Belly).

As the climb steepened, Mitchell fell off the pace in the lead group, while Perras struggled to maintain contact with a group containing race leader Chris Wherry (Health Net-Maxxis) and eventual stage winner Trent Lowe (Jittery Joe's-Kalahari).

Perras, Mitchell, and Jacques-Maynes were the team's top finishers, with Godfrey and Jackson Stewart finishing the climb together farther down.

Scott Zwizanski finished off the back after an early crash, and Russell Hamby and Tim Larkin were forced to withdraw due to illness.
