SugarCRM Girls Fine Tune Tour of California Prep at Season Opening Cherry Pie Criterium

The SugarCRM squad today fine tuned their Tour of California criterium preparation by racing the Cherry Pie Criterium in Napa, Ca.
The 8 riders slated for next weekend had the opportunity to test their legs against the likes of riders from Team TIBCO, PROMAN Hit Squad, Metromint, Touchstone Climbing and Webcor Sportvelo. After strong riding at the front of the pack on a testing, windy circuit, Lindsay Myers made the major break of the day with Sarah Bamberger (Touchstone), Alison Starnes (Team TIBCO) and the PROMAN duo of Rachel Llyod and Megan Guarnier.
Unfortunately for Lindsay, the experience of the pro riders led to her being forced back into the main peleton in the closing stages of the race.
Despite a late resergence by her, Karla Kingsley and strong riding from Erin Dunne, the break managed to stay away and SugarCRM was left to contest the bunch kick, placing two riders in the back end of the top ten.
Earlier in the day Liza Rachetto and Jen Van Muckey achieved first and third in the Womens Masters Category, bringing the Blue RC8 onto its first podium of 2009 and earning a couple of Cherry Pies in the process!
