September 12/09 22:05 pm - Tour of Missouri: Stage 5


Posted by Editoress on 09/12/09
 

The Individual Time Trial at the Missouri State Fairgrounds proved to be a playground for four-time U.S. Pro ITT champion David Zabriskie today, winning by 30 seconds over Sweden's Gustav Larsson (Saxo Bank). American Tom Zirbel (Bissell Pro Cycling) finished third, 44 seconds behind Zabriskie. The Tour of Missouri win at Stage 5, presented by Missouri's Electric Cooperatives, propels the Garmin-Slipstream rider into the Missouri Tourism Leader's Jersey heading into the final weekend.

"I looked at the first 3k and the last 3k (in preparation). The rest was pretty straightforward and not too technical. I was able to hold speed on the rollers and the last part was probably the hardest with the wind," said Zabriskie, a Salt Lake City, Utah, resident, who finished in a time of 36 minutes, 30.49 seconds. "We have two days left here and I we know what we have to do. I think the team is very strong and we'll be able to do it (in Kansas City)."

Today's Stage 5, presented by Missouri's Electric Cooperatives, featured a new course for the "race of truth", a discipline won last year by Tour of Missouri champion Christian Vande Velde (Garmin-Slipstream). The field of 115 pro riders departed one by one in reverse order of the general classification in one-minute intervals, with the Top 10 rolling down the start ramp at the Centennial Gate of the fairgrounds complex in two-minute intervals. Riders completed a total distance of 19-miles (30.6 km), racing the clock across the Pettis County farmland and then fighting a headwind back into Sedalia to the fairgrounds.

Zirbel, set the best time of the day among the first 45 riders. Then Zabriskie, who was sitting in 56th place in the general classification, destroyed the course and kept the top spot for the rest of the afternoon. Larsson, the silver medalist at the ITT in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, made a run at Zabriskie's time, but had challenges with a strong wind and slow-moving motorbikes on the course in the final three kilometers to take second. Italian Marco Pinotti (Columbia-HTC) narrowly missed the podium, finishing one second behind Zirbel in fourth.

"I tried to take it out a little bit harder the first half. I felt really strong about the second half. All week I've been excited about the time trial," added Zirbel, who has finished second at the USA Cycling Pro ITT Championships in Greenville, S.C. the past two years. "The two who beat me (today) are some of the best in the world and I can't be too disappointed."

Zabriskie is now the fourth rider in five days to have worn the Missouri Tourism Leader's Jersey. Larsson, Zirbel and Pinotti are behind Zabriskie in the G.C. as well, and with a 5th place finish in the ITT, Levi Leipheimer (Astana) moves from 41st to 6th overall in the G.C. Three teams, Saxo Bank, Bissell and Astana, each have two riders in the Top 10. 2007 Tour of Missouri champion George Hincapie (Columbia-HTC) sits in 29th position, 2'17" behind the race leader. Also back in the field are two riders who once adorned the yellow leader's jersey, Thor Hushovd (Cervelo Test Team) in 60th place, 3'45" back, and J.J. Haedo (Saxo Bank) in 77th place, 4'56" back.
