Monterey, California – Peanut Butter TWENTY12 had a fantastic day at the Sea Otter Classic Stage Race, taking first and third in the stage 1 criterium. Two-time World Time Trial Champion Kristin Armstrong took the victory, her first since returning to racing in 2011, and 19-year-old Coryn Rivera took third in a fast paced race. Armstrong and Team TWENTY12 will look to defend the leaders jersey throughout the race.
In the men’s race, Team Exergy also was on the podium. Andres Diaz took second on the stage in a vicious sprint. Additionally, Carlos Alzate was out front nearly all day in a solo breakaway and took all three intermediate sprints to claim the sprinters jersey.
