HP Women's Challenge

Stage 5: St. Alphonsus Shoshone to Pomerelle Road Race, 87.9 miles, 140.6 km

Team Saturn Report

Jeanson Trounces on top of Pomerelle
Win of Stage puts her in Blue


Stage five of the HP Women's Challenge was by far the longest and toughest the athletes had yet to face. With Saturn holding the first, second and third spots in the overall, all teams were eager to join forces to shake up the standings.

The Saturn Cycling Team knew that this day their lead would be the most vulnerable. The final climb of 30 kilometers was custom made for Genevieve Jeanson. Steep and long, it proved to be the launching pad the young Canadian Team was looking for. In the final meters it was Jeanson over Saturn's Arndt by 1:02. The Canadian won the stage and claimed the jersey but not without a hard fought battle from the Saturn Team.

At kilometer 18, a group of ten formed on the impulsion of Saturn's Petra Rossner's counter attack off her teammate Catherine Marsal's initial escape effort. In the group were Saturn teammates Rossner and Ina Teutenberg. Lithuanian teammates Diana Ziliute and Zita Unrbonaite, T-Mobile's Kim Anderson, two Boise Cascade riders (Gina Grain and Nicole Demars), Monica Valen (Sponsor Service) and Barbara Lancioni (Itera) joined the motivated Saturn riders. The entire group worked well together and steadily opened a gap on the field. With Rossner less than two minutes down on Jeanson, the Rona team was forced to chase. The hard work of Jeanson's team began to show as slowly the Rona Team could not keep pace and the time gap opened to four minutes.

At the bottom of the final climb, the front group of ten began to shatter, with only Rossner left. At the bottom Jeanson unleashed her power and quickly left the remaining group behind her. Soon she was alone, setting an unmatched tempo on the climb. Behind her Saturn's Arndt, Canadian Lyne Bessette and Amber Neben tried to come to terms with the Canadian mountain goat, but they would not see her again until the finish. She won the stage convincingly, with a minute insulation on second place Arndt who out-sprinted Bessette for second. Itera's Polkhanova was fourth behind Bessette, with Neben in fifth and Saturn's Kimberly Bruckner in sixth.

Jeanson will don the Blue Leader's Jersey for tomorrow's stage. The race course will take the 86 competitors from Burley to Magic Mountain for yet another mountain top finish. After today's intensive effort, all await to see if today will have any effect on Jeanson's power in tomorrow's stage. The question remains, is one minute enough for the young Canadian against the Saturn Team?
