On Sunday, August 6, 2006 over 250 bicycle racers battled for victory over a grueling day of womenís, and menís, professional and amateur cycle races on the historic grounds of Washington, DCís RFK Stadium in Southeast Washington, DC. Hub Racingís 4th Annual City Bikes RFK Criterium Bicycle Race brought many of the worldís best criterium cyclists to Washington, DC for a full day of high-paced racing action on the vaunted Grand Prix course at RFK Stadium on Sunday.

The Hub Racing Womenís Challenge was the feature event for the day. An international field of top ranked professional women cyclists came to the Nationís Capital to compete for the $5000 purse. Team Lipton superstar and Pennsylvania native Laura Van Gilder won the $1000 top prize, ahead of New Zealandís Melissa Holt (Team Colavita/Cooking Light) and Canadian Anne Samplonius (Team Biovail). Van Gliderís Lipton teammate, Sarah Caravella, won the field sprint to take fifth place in the finish of the much anticipated Womenís Challenge.

Host club Hub Racing took the top 2 podium spots in two of the dayís races. Development rider Mark Plotz won the category 5 menís race followed by teammate Jeremy Jo. Later in the afternoon Hub Racingís Becky Broeder crossed the line only inches ahead of and hand in hand with her teammate Brooke OíConnor to win the Womenís Master (age 30+) event while Hub Racing team captain Sheba Farrin won the field sprint to take sixth overall. Broeder and OíConnor would both also place in the top 20 in the featured Hub Racing Womenís Challenge later in the day. Broederís victory in the Masterís race gave her three victories across the last two weekends, having won twice in Arizona the week before.

The City Bike RFK Criterium benefited the Doug Gordon Memorial Easter Seals Fund. Hub Racing is a Washington DC based USA Cycling club dedicated to the fielding of an elite international womenís road racing team as well as promotion of cycling events in the National Capital Region. Sponsors of Hub Racing include Cannondale bicycles and Timbuk2 Messenger Bags.
