The Nature Valley Grand Prix got under way today. Former women’s pro cyclist, Jenn Reither, is providing “color” from each stage, and blogged about stage one results here: http://www.minnbikefestival.com/blog/procyclingmn/2008/06/stage-1-st-paul-lowertown-criterium.html

The women got in 30 of 40 laps and Olympian Kristin Armstrong won the race hands down. The men’s race was called after just 20 of 45 laps and officials “neutralized” the field, meaning that the men’s stage was essentially a washout. As were the streets of St. Paul following near-steady rainfall all afternoon and early evening.
