Men, Women Roll Into Chattanooga For USPRO Championship
Road Race and Time Trial
May 24th | Minneapolis, MN
This Memorial Day weekend marks the 2013 US National Professional Cycling Championships, which comes to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the first time in its 28 year history. It is the first time both the men and women will be racing concurrently for the USPRO stars and stripes, in both the time trial and road race disciplines.
The men’s team comes off a highly successful Amgen Tour of California, where Chad Haga captured 10th overall against some of the top riders in the world and the squad finished top-8 in 6 stages including a 2nd place on Stage 4 by Ken Hanson. Jade Wilcoxson finished 4th in the Tour of California Women’s TT while the rest of the women’s squad split duties in Canada as well, grabbing multiple podiums at the UCI 1.1 ranked GP Gatineau and Chrono Gatineau. Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies come to Chattanooga with high hopes to add another national championship to their ranks.
The women’s push for a championship will be led by Wilcoxson, who finished 2nd in the 2012 NRC rankings, and Janel Holcomb, the 2011 NRC Champion and recent stage winner and 3rd overall at the Tour of the Gila. Sprinter Lauren Hall should be an ace-in-the-hole in case of a field sprint having led out teammate Joelle Numainville at Gatineua and still coming home in 4th on the day. Newcomer Brianna Walle continues to impress as well in her debut pro season. Rounding out the roster to contest the stars and stripes will be Amber Gaffney and Grace Alexander.
Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s World and Olympic champion Dani King, World junior time trial champion Elinor Barker, and Olympic Academy rider Amy Roberts will line up at the start of the new Milk Race, in Nottingham city centre on Sunday. The Milk Marketing Board sponsored the Tour of Britain from 1958 until its winding up in 1993, and 20 years on the new Dairy Council and Milk Marketing Forum have come together for a one-day race, to one again promote the benefits of milk.
For the first time ever there will be a race for elite women, alongside that for the men.
“It’s great to see the Milk Race back on the calendar after 20 years away!” said Roberts, who recently returned from China after representing Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling in the Tours of Chongming Island and Zhoushan Island. “It’s a privilege to be be to take part in such a prestigious event, especially being able to represent Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling in the UK.
“It’s also fantastic to see equality in prize money between men and women,” she added.
The new Milk Race will be based on a 1.2km circuit in the centre of Nottingham, starting and finishing on Long Row, and passing such historic sights as Nottingham Castle. The elite women’s race will start at 2.15pm and will go on for 50 minutes plus five laps.
Brent Bookwalter will represent the BMC Racing Team at this weekend’s USA Cycling national championships in Chattanooga, Tenn., and is the only returning medalist from last year’s individual time trial.
Time Trial Saturday; Road Race Monday
Last year, Bookwalter finished third behind winner David Zabriskie (Garmin-Sharp) and teammate Tejay van Garderen. Van Garderen opted to rest after his victory at the Amgen Tour of California Sunday while Zabriskie crashed and broke his collarbone during time trial warm-up at the Amgen Tour. Bookwalter said the course for Saturday’s 30.9-kilometer race against the clock doesn’t exactly play to his strengths but he is feeling good about his form. “We did a great week in California and it breeds confidence going into nationals,” Bookwalter said. “I feel really good and strong, not too fatigued or weathered. I wish I had a couple teammates there, but I’m excited and motivated to race in my home region of the country.” The Asheville, N.C., resident said he will take a wait-and-see approach in Mondays’ 161.9-kilometer road race. “The race can definitely be won without a big, powerful team,” he said.
After leading for two days, Andre Greipel (Lotto) slips off the top spot taking 48th on the day, 1:39 behind new leader Tony Martin (Omega).
Primal Pro Race Clinic – By Nicky Wangsgard
I’m so excited to share that Primal Pro Women p/b BH hosted an enriched cycling skills clinics May 21st in West Valley City, Utah. Our clinic was an overwhelming hit in the community as fourty men and women participated. In fact one attendee, Shirley Leydsman from St. George, Utah, drove over 300 miles to attend the clinic. We chose to have our clinic in conjunction with the Utah Crit Series at RMR (Rocky Mountain Raceway) so attendees could practice skills immediately after our clinic in the C and D race flight. We taught attendees valuable racing/cycling skills and I gave them precious race winning secrets that I used to keep hidden in my back pocket. I lead the clinic with teammates Tiffany Pezzulo and Kaytie Scott. The clinic was such a hit that I recruited help from a local racing star, who has been racing for thirty-five years, Margaret Douglass and well known community coach Mark Deterline (Leadout Endurance Coaching)
After the clinic I watched attendees successfully apply skills in the C and D flight race. Attendee Jarren Garvin from FFKR Architects Velosport Racing stated, “Thanks so much, that was the safest I’ve ever felt in a criterium peloton.” Also, attendees succeeded in their race after our clinic. Michael Conti riding for K2 The Church won the C flight and Steven Perry riding for Infinite Cycles took third in the D flight. [Read more...]
A grip of my friends hit me up the other day to join them on a group mountain bike ride. I, of course, accepted. They said they would meet me at my pad in 30 minutes, so I headed out to the garage to ready my steed for the day’s adventure. A tam dirt loop was the plan, Rock Springs descent on the docket; my favorite fire road of all time. Now my mountain bike is a couple of years old. And while I do not abuse my equipment, I do certainly use it. And my mountain bike is a prime example.
I wiped down my chain and noticed that it was worn beyond healthy, decided it could handle one more ride. And upon inspecting my chainrings, I noticed a few teeth that were chipped or in one case even missing, decided it could handle one more ride. I pumped up my fork to the appropriate level, happy there was nothing wrong there. My rear shock … the same. I filled my water bottle and kitted up.
We hit the climb up Eldridge Grade and my finely tuned and kept equipment saw my chain wanting to jump into my spokes. Nice. Seriously time to tune that rig up. I dropped it down the cog one and settled in without any further hassle.
