10:45am - Montreal World Cup

With less than half an hour to the start of the race, the sun has been replaced with clouds and the temperature sits at 15 degrees. No rain is forecast.

There will be 79 starters in this the 4th round of the 2000 Women's World Cup.

Teams and riders to watch:

Geneviéve Jeanson!!

Team Acca Due o-Lorena Camicie: Team of the current World Cup Leader Diana Ziliute. Also on this team are Marion Clignet, Jolanta & Rasa Polikeviciute These 4 riders could pose a very serious threat to Jeanson who will receive very little team support.

Dutch rider Mirjam Melchers has been riding very strong this season.

Last year's winner Tracy Gaudrey returns (with a team this time), riding for Timex which also has Mari Holden (riding strong this year) and Canadian Odessa Gunn who will ride hard to support Gaudrey.

Saturn rider, 2nd place last year and local rider Lyne Bessette.

Gas Sport Team: Team of Fabiana Luperini and Pia Sunstedt, who has been riding well .

On the Canadian National squad, Leigh Hobson is joined by a returning Sue Palmer.

Notes:

The bikes for the Belgian Vlaanderen 2002 team did not arrive on their flight and Gervais Rioux has been able to supply the entire team with bikes so that they can start todays race.

Rob spoke with Louis Barbeau of the FQSC who predicts that Jeanson will drive hard from the start. She will set a very high tempo to try and split the field up. She will then take a look around and see who has been able to stay with her and then form a plan for the remainder of the race.

11:25am - Jeanson sets the pace at Montreal World Cup

The pack has started up the first climb of the day with Jeanson leading Luperini, who is "glued" to Jeanson's wheel, at a fast pace. The rest of the Gas Sport team is very close too. The pack is already beginning to stretch out behind them.

11:45am - Lap 3 Montreal World Cup

Saturn has been launching attack after attack on the flat sections of the course forcing Jeanson to chase. Their tactic is to tire her out. On the climb during lap 3 it is Team Gas Sport in control with Bonanomi leading Luperini. Jeanson is sitting about 6 back.
