Wilson Wins Stage One At Hewlett-Packard International Women‚s Challenge
(courtesy USA Cycling)

IDAHO CITY, Idaho -- Australian Anna Wilson bested some of the world‚s top sprinters Wednesday to win the 47.5-mile first stage of the Hewlett-Packard International Women‚s Challenge.

Wilson (Australia), the 1996 overall champion of this race, edged Petra Rossner (Office Max) of Germany in the final 300 yards. Wilson had moved past Rossner and Diana Ziliute (HP Toner) to lead through the final corner.

"I came around them to be first into the corner," Wilson said. "Then I thought, ŒOh, it‚s so far to go.‚ I half-expected to be second."

It was a quick turnabout for Wilson, who suffered a flat tire in Tuesday‚s prologue and placed 30th. Her Australian teammates helped set her up for the win, moving to the front of the 81-rider lead group. Tracey Gaudry, who celebrated her 29th birthday today, gave the final lead-out.

"It worked perfectly," said Gaudry, a 1996 Olympic teammate of Wilson‚s. "We‚re happy because today all of the sprinters were there. This is the sort of stage they want to win."

Americans Kendra Wenzel (Saeco-Timex) and Karen Bliss Livingston (Saturn) -- the winner of this stage in 1996 and 1997 -- finished third and fourth, respectively.

"It was more clustered closer to the finished than in other years," Livingston said. "Petra and Anna shot out on the inside and had a big gap."

Livingston‚s teammate, Karen Kurreck, placed sixth despite missing the start and joining the field 1.9 miles into race. She was fined, but not penalized.

The field rode together throughout the race with the brief exception of a five-rider break which formed after Mari Holden (Office Depot) won the mountain sprint at the top of the climb past Lucky Peak Lake. Holden was joined by Alison Dunlap (Office Max), Rasa Polikeviciute (HP Toner), Pam Schuster (Saeco-Timex) and Tammy Jacques (Polo Sport-Clif Bar). The break only stayed away for three miles on the downhill stretch.

Wenzel‚s teammate, Linda Jackson, finished in the field and kept the overall lead, six seconds ahead of Edita Pucinskaite (Boise Cascade) of Lithuania. Ziliute and Jeannie Longo (Longo-Ebly) are both 10 seconds behind.

Tomorrow‚s 78.8-mile Sourdough Lodge to Galena Summit road race is the first of two tough climbing days, featuring two long climbs and a mountain-top finish. Forty-six riders are within a minute of Jackson heading into the stage.

"There are a lot of good climbers here," Jackson said. "I feel confident going into tomorrow. I‚ve had a good race on Galena every year I‚ve been here."


Event Nine in the Mississauga Midweek criterium series had 57 starters, even though many of the regulars were off playing at The Grand Prix Cycliste de Beauce. To make sure the handicap group didn't bridge to the 1/2's, as they did last week, the interval between starts was cut to ninety seconds. As the race progressed, the fast group steadily pulled back the handicap bunch and , within seven laps, all were together.

Then Mark Hibbert, Forest City, riding in his first Midweek Club race, made a lone break and, despite several half-hearted chases by different riders, stayed up to thirty seconds up on the field for the next nine laps.

With eight laps left, the riders were back together and Chris Atkins, Independent, took the cash prime at the end of the lap and stayed away. Don Zuck, Pavan and Scott Buschlen, Ind., bridged and this trio looked all set to time trial to the line. But finally the bunch woke up and pulled them back in short order.

With two laps to go, organizer Peter McC. Threw in another prime just to stir things up and this was won easily by Ottawa's speedy Vet. B, Peter Matuzals. At this point, the speed increased dramatically and during the final lap, the bunch split into several parts, with stragglers strung out all round the circuit.

At the line, it was vet. A , Rick Froner, showing us all a flash of his past, from fellow vet.,Greg Cavanagh, with youngster, Chris Atkins in third. No less than three of the next 5 places were also filled by veteran riders despite the presence of a good number of first category riders .

Series standings after this event : 1) Heath Cockburn, Jet Fuel, (away in Beauce) 58 points, 2) Greg Cavanagh closing in with 52, and 3) Chris Atkins moving up to equal third with Jeff Hansen, Neworld, 33. For detailed series informatio, contact Peter at (905) 271-8300 or email
