Canadians 4th and 9th in Ringerike GP

After maintaining second place on G.C. for the first four of the five stages of the Ringerike G.P. , Michael Barry (Saturn) dropped to fourth despite finishing third on the tough 166km final stage. World U23 ITT champion Thor Hushovd (Norway) and compatriot Erland Engelsvoll broke away 30 km from the finish. Despite the efforts of Teams Saturn and Accept Card the two Norwegians finished 2:48 up on Barry, who led in a chase group of four riders that included the yellow jersey Michael Andersson (Sweden) Accept Card. The time gap was sufficient to take Hushovd and Engelsvoll to the top two spots on the podium with Andersson maintaining a 14 second advantage over Barry for third.

Team Saturn now moves on across Europe to compete in the ten day Peace Race which starts in Prague on Thursday.

Additions To Announcement

Lorraine Blancher has let us know that the press release we received and posted concerning her signing with Schwinn USA left out a few details. First, she will be racing for the Schwinn Homegrown program (not the Toyota RAV4 squad), which will be providing racing support as she follows the U.S. Norba circuit. Also, two of her major sponsors were left out of the original release - Oakley and Airwalk (never leave out the sponsors!).
