Cory Lockwood (Elevate KHS Pro Cycling) and Kristabel Doebel-Hickok (Cylance Pro Cycling) are winners in the stage one time trial at The Tour de Murrieta. A unique time trial course with a 1 mile uphill dirt section that keeps the riders on their toes. Cory put 2.53 seconds into teammate Innokenty Zavyalov and 10.34 seconds into third place finisher Rene Corella (Start Vaxes Cycling Team).
Kristabel was 11.18 ahead of second place finisher Esther Walker (SDBC-Emerald Textiles p/b UC Cyclery) and Emily Marcolini (Sudbury Cycling Club) finished third 24.42 back. Unlike Cory, Kristabel is without teammates and is up for a real battle with 2016 overall team winners, Sho-Air Twenty 20.
