Kristin Armstrong takes the GC at Tour of Gila.

Looks like Kristin Armstrong’s intention for WC titles is on track after winning the GC and third stages at tour of Gila.

Cervelo’s Kristin Armstrong rode through a four-woman breakaway on the final climb, solo’ing nearly the last ten miles to a win of over a minute, her third stage win at this year’s Gila.

The long breakaway members were Amanda Miller (Lip Smackers), Rebecca Much (Webcor), Hilary Billington (Lip Smackers) and Nicole Evans (ValueAct). The group built a lead of over four minutes, but dissolved on the first slopes of the final long climb.

Evans was the last survivor, and was passed by Armstrong not far into the climb. Evans continued alone, in second place, for eight or nine miles until she was caught by a small bunch in the last 300 meters. (Velonews.com)
