      2 wins in 2 days for the men at the Tour of Elk Grove with Ken Hanson taking the sprint on the line today over Jelly Belly's Brad Huff. Another tick in the win column for the men and Ken Hanson who continues to show he's the fastest man in the U.S. this year. Unfortunately time bonuses resulted in Tom Zirbel being jumped on GC, however he remains in striking distance with one stage left tomorrow. But great to see 2 UCI victories in 2 days at this 2.1 ranked event.

      Meanwhile in the women's race Jade Wilcoxson surprised the sprinters by attacking inside the last km and holding off the charging field by 1 second. With her time bonus for the win and 1 second gap, she is just 1 second behind the overall lead. She also leads the Sprint Competition by 2 points. Additionally Leah Kirchmann continues to show she's on the comeback trail finishing 9th on the stage.
