While the Tour de France captured the attention of the cycling fans around the world, the Cyclingnews’ Bell Lap series was heating up with three July events: the Gastown Grand Prix, the Boise’s Andersen Banducci Twilight Criterium and the San Rafael Sunset Criterium.

Sam Schneider continued her domination of the series, taking out her fifth victory in the San Rafael Criterium while leading an ISCorp podium sweep with teammates Caroline Baur and Josie Talbot. Schneider leads the series over Talbot by a whopping 72-point margin, with Boise Twilight winner Kendall Ryan (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank) in third.

Track star Jen Valente (Twenty20 p/b Sho-Air) claimed victory in the Gastown GP, taking her only points in the series. Lily Williams (Hagens Berman-Supermint) climbed the rankings with second in the BC Superweek race over US criterium champion Leigh Ann Ganzar.


On the men’s side, Sam Bassetti (Elevate-KHS) extended his lead by capturing six points in Boise, while Eric Young (Rally Cycling) climbed into third overall thanks to his victory in the Gastown GP. In Boise, it was Aevolo’s Gage Hecht who took a fine win – his only points in the series – over Nickolas Zukowsky (Silber), who moved up to eighth overall.

The Bell Lap series continues with this weekend’s Reading Radsport Criterium.
