Chainheart Devo Team dominating in New England, Legge holds on to jersey.

Bicycles took over the motorsports track at Thompson CT, with the third stop of Verge Sport New England Criterium Week. The Thompson Cycling Gran Prix used the 1.7 mile auto road race course, which included winding turns, a small hill, and a sprint down the finish straight on the racing oval.

In the elite women's race, prime hunters Ashlyn Woods and Emma Bast (Zubaz Racing) kept going after $100 lap prizes, with Verge Sport series leader Regina Legge (Green Line Velo driven by Zipcar) staying out of the skirmishes. The finish came down to a field sprint, with 19 year old Woods besting Bast for the win, and Legge taking third to keep the series lead. Green Line Velo Women retained the team lead as well, and head into the Longsjo races resplendent in the neon yellow socks marking best team. 

Elite men also were gunning for $100 primes, and the cash on the line helped prevent any breakaways from sticking. Sean McElroy (Chainheart Devo) hit the gas hard before the last corner, and lead in the field for the win. His teammate James Brookshire took second to retain the Verge Sport leader's jersey, with Sam Rosenholtz (CCB/Velotooler) in third.
