Hestler wins!

We just received a report from Neil Ross (national team assistant manager) that Andreas Hestler (CAN) Team Ford Devinci has won the street race at St Wendel, the opening event for this weekends World Cup #4 in Germany. The women's race was won by Jimena Florit-Juarez (ARG) RLX/PoloSport, 2nd. Alla Epifanova (RUS) Volvo/Cannondale, 3rd Leslie Tomlinson (CAN) RLX/PoloSport.

The race organizers have been "adjusting" the course since early in the week, when day after day of rain meant that tire selection during training was tricky and real mudholes developed on the official course.

Today the sun was shining and things were drying up. The organizers have removed some of the real muddy spots and added a few "technical" sections, although Neil reports that most of the riders will be riding on semi-slicks for Sunday's race.

Congratulations

Dorion reprend le boulot après un temps difficile

Silver City, Nouveau-Mexique (DIAPO) - Mélanie Dorion est de retour en selle après deux semaines de repos forcé. Inscrite au Tour de Gila, au Nouveau-Mexique, Dorion a terminé au 24e rang du contre-la-montre mercredi, et 16e de la difficile épreuve sur route de jeudi. Au classement général, elle occupe le 20e rang.

"Je suis très satisfaite de mes deux premières étapes", expliquait Dorion fort souriante au bout du fil. "Après la Coupe du monde (de vélo de montagne) de Mazatlan (Mexique), je me sentais complètement épuisée. Plutôt que de me rendre en Europe, je suis demeurée à Tucson où je n'ai presque rien fait pendant deux semaines. Je bâtis ma forme pour le championnat du monde de vélo de montagne, ma dernière chance de qualification pour les Jeux olympiques de Sydney. " Le championnat du monde se tiendra en Espagne au début du mois de juin.

Le Tour de Gila, une course de cinq étapes, se poursuit jusqu'àdimanche.
