B.C. Cup #2 (courtesy Trish Sinclair)

I thought I'd give you a quick update on the B.C. Cup race yesterday (Sunday, May 24th) at Summerland. It was an exciting battle between Melanie McQuaid, Rocky Mountain, and myself, Trish Sinclair, Kona. I started off in the lead with Melanie weaving her way through the mass start, catching me in the single track. We played cat and mouse throughout the race, with Melanie beating me in a sprint finish.

The men's race proved to be very exciting as well. Roland Green started with a comfortable lead of 1 min. 30 sec until he flatted, only to fix it and flat again. He finished a respectable 5th place on a rear rim. Ryder Hesjedal (also with Kona) took the lead and never looked back. His teammate Geoff Kabush took third, with Ruedi Schneider in fourth. Carter Hovey, Rocky Mountain, was riding in second for a time, but suffered a twisted chain as well as a flat tire. All the course records were broken due to dry weather and the high fitness of our B.C. riders.


Repeat Offenders Speed to Somerville Success

Report by J.P. Partland for USA Cycling

SOMERVILLE, N.J. -- On a day that promised rain, the 55th annual Tour of Somerville lucked out. Early morning thundershowers passed through the region, soaking the course, but the storm's second breath only threatened to dump more of the wet stuff.

While the weather was a surprise, the racing wasn't. All but one of the six races on the country's fastest course finished in a field sprint. The exception was Bob Clifford (Sony-CRCA), who stole the masters 50+ race on a solo breakaway.

In the featured events, the Mildred Kugler Women's Open and the Kugler- Anderson Memorial, national criterium champions won the day. Saturn's Karen Bliss Livingston showed her national champion's jersey when it counted, blazing by the field in the closing meters. Nicole Freedman (Shaklee) was second followed by Tina Mayolo (PowerBar). The women's race had been quite active, with members of the Shaklee, PowerBar, Saeco-Timex, Celestial- Seasonings, Ralph's-Klein and Saturn teams mixing it up early and often.

The real mania of the day was saved, at usually is, for the Kugler-Anderson Memorial, the elite men's race. Jonas Carney, Shaklee's USPRO criterium champion, showed up wearing a Breakaway Courier Systems jersey. Rumors of a back room deal went through the pack and the crowd, but once the racing was underway, it didn't matter. No break could stay away for long, and Carney's teammates-for-the-day wound up the field until springs were blowing, and Carney had an escort to the victory, with temporary teammate Adam Myerson taking second. After Carney dedicated his victory to former Toga Team boss Lenny Preheim, he paid tribute to his good fortune.

"When it was time to do the lead out, Scott Mercer and Kevin Monahan just dialed it up," Carney said. "No one was going anywhere really. Scott did the fastest lap of the day by himself -- he was going so fast."
