Ketchum, ID, June 12 ˆ Despite a broken wrist, Lithuanian Jolanta Polikeviciute (HP Toner) held off Canadian Lyne Bessette (Saturn) and France's Elisabeth Chevannes-Brunel (Staples) to capture the 28.8-mile HP Toner Circuit Race in a time of 1 hour, 17 minutes, 17 seconds. Chevannes-Brunel broke away with eight laps to go in the 18-lap race and was joined by Polikeviciute and Bessette with five laps to go. The three riders stayed away from the field and Polikeviciute edged the other two riders for the victory. A main field of 53 riders finished 19 seconds off the leaders. Polikeviciute's victory moves her from 9th to 4th overall, and gives HP Toner four of the top five places, behind race leader Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli (Ebly). HP Toner currently leads the team competition by a mere 1 minute, 20 seconds over Team Ebly heading into tomorrow's HP Mopier Team Time Trial.

"It was just another regular day (at the office)∑ it‚s our job," said Polikeviciute of her victory.

Lyne Bessette reprend du poil de la bête en Idaho

Elkhorn, Idaho-Lyne Bessette a profité des deux étapes de samedi du Hewlett-Packard Laserjet women's Challenge pour grimper au 18e rang du classement général des 128 cyclistes présentes. En matinée, lors d'un contre-la-montre en duel de 5 kilomètres, Bessette a terminé au 6e rang, mais une pénalité douteuse lui a valu la 11e position et le 19e rang du classement général. En soirée, Bessette a terminé au deuxième rang d'un critérium de 46 kilomètres dans une échappée à trois, ce qui lui a permis de remonter d'un autre rang au classement général.

" Lors du critérium, j'ai eu l'occasion de partir avec Jolanta Polikeciute et Elizabeth Chevannes-Brunel et je suis partie avec elles, a indiqué la cycliste de Knowlton. À un moment, on devait bien avoir une trentaine de secondes d'avance sur le peloton, mais on a terminé avec une dizaine de secondes d'avance. "

Quant à sa pénalité lors du contre-la-montre, Bessette riait, mais émettait des doutes. " Nous partions deux par deux et devions respecter un compte à rebours de cinq secondes. Semble-t-il que je serais partie avant mon adversaire... "

" Je suis contente parce que je me sens mieux de jour en jour. Je prends cette compétition un plus à légère que d'autres, mais si ça peut bien aller, tant mieux. "

Dimanche, un contre-la-montre en équipe est au programme.
