Mercury Cycling Classic of Irvine

Irvine, California (September 23rd, 2001) - Prime Alliance's Jonas Carney and Jenny Eyerman of Jane Cosmetics took advantage of golden opportunities to win the Mercury Cycling Classic of Irvine. With the Saturn Cycling Team virtually absent from both the Men's and Women's events, it opened the door for the duo to pick up the biggest victories of the season for their respective teams, and led to some highly exciting race action in the process.

The inaugural Mercury Cycling Classic of Irvine featured all the ingredients necessary to make it an immediate success: great weather, enthusiastic crowds, and, of course, a venue worthy of a Pro Cycling Tour event. Held on a 1.5-mile loop at the Irvine Spectrum- one of the most popular shopping areas in Orange County, attracting 35,000 visitors a day - with the Start/Finish area located in front of Mercury's newly-opened International Headquarters, the race course included nine turns and an out-and-back section each lap.

In the 90-minute Men's race, Pro Cycling Tour leader Trent Klasna was the only member of the Saturn team in attendance. However, that didn't mean that there was a lack of horsepower in the field, as such domestic powerhouses as Navigators, 7 UP/Colorado Cyclist, and 'hometown hero' Mercury had full squads in the 125-man starting field. The action started almost from the gun, as another 'hometown hero', Jaime Paolinetti (NetZero) spearheaded an early attack that looked dangerous- until the field got serious. From that point on, no one was able to get more than a few seconds up, as each team looked to its sprinters to bring home the victory. With one lap to go, it looked like Mercury was in control, as its train was going full tilt. But things didn't quite work out that way: designated sprinter Gord Fraser ended up leading it out too early, setting the table for Prime Alliance's Carney- when properly motivated, one of North America's fastest men- to come around in the last 50 meters, with 7 UP/Colorado Cyclist's Kevin Monahan also getting by Fraser to take second. Fraser came across the line third, followed by teammate Derek Bouchard-Hall and Navigator's Siro Camponogara. Afterwards, Carney was quick to thank his teammates for his victory - including new Prime Alliance recruit Chris Horner, formerly of Mercury: "They were just raging out there. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to break into the Mercury train, but Chris and the guys made sure I was in position, and I just took it from there. It's great to pick up a win like this, in front of this many people. Thanks, Irvine!"

The absence of Saturn was felt more strongly in the Women's event, given the way that the women in yellow have dominated the 2001 Pro Cycling Tour from the very beginning. While the field wasn't quite as strong as usual, the racing was far more open, as there was no clearcut favorite for victory. The smart money was riding on the upstart Procter & Gamble squad- coming off a strong second in the San Rafael Grand Prix- to move one step further up on the podium. However, with no breakaway attempt gaining more than a few seconds before being reeled back in, it came down to a group sprint- which meant it was anyone's race. While Procter & Gamble did a good job of setting up team sprinter Joanne Kiesanowski, the young New Zealander, still recovering from a recent crash, wasn't quite able to hold off the 25-year old Eyerman. Eyerman, the 1999 Collegiate National Criterium Champion, was almost in tears after the finish, as she celebrated the biggest victory of her four-year racing career: "I don't know what to say! I've come close in a couple of big races this year, but to win a Pro Cycling Tour's just awesome! I'd like to thank my sponsor, Jane Cosmetics, for making it possible- they've been a great benefactor to women's cycling." Temecula native Sarah Hammer (Zero Wait) was third, with Pam Schuster ( and Theresa Nugent (South Bay Wheelmen) taking fourth and fifth.

There were no changes in the overall Pro Cycling Tour standings, as Men's leader Trent Klasna (Saturn) and Women's leader Anna Millward (Saturn) both retained their orange hats of series leadership. The 2001 Pro Cycling Tour concludes on October 22nd with the Miami Cycling Classic in Miami, Florida.

Humberto vole la vedette au Tour cycliste des Bermudes

Bermudes - 23 septembre 2001 - Dimanche, la tempête tropicale Humberto qui sévit au nord-est des Caraïbes, a été la grande vedette de la dernière journée du Tour cycliste des Bermudes. Alors qu'un critérium de 60 minutes devait être présenté, les organisateurs ont été contraints de réduire l' épreuve à 45 minutes. La chaussée rendue glissante par les fortes pluies, ainsi que les vents qui s'abattaient sur l'archipel des Bermudes, ont fait en sorte que les officiels ont décidé que l'épreuve ne compterait pas au classement général.

"Disons que les coureurs étaient plus ou moins motivés pour prendre part à la course", a indiqué Alexandre Cloutier de l'équipe Volkswagen - Les Ailes. "Les premiers tours ont été assez lents. Un coureur est parti en échappée et lorsqu'il a pris un tour d'avance sur le peloton, plusieurs cyclistes l'ont réprimandé car il y avait eu une entente comme quoi tout le monde allait prendre ça mollo."

Dépourvue d'un enjeu véritable, Cloutier a tout de même pris le septième rang de l'épreuve.

"Je suis satisfait de mon tour, même si je n'étais pas au sommet de ma forme", a indiqué le cycliste de Ste-Foy, qui participera à une dernière course sur piste en Europe au cours des prochaines semaines.

"Je m'en suis bien tiré", a pour sa part expliqué Martin Nuckle. "Le critérium de vendredi soir était très rapide et d'avoir pu tenir le coup dans cette épreuve est ma plus grande satisfaction du tour."

Samedi, sur un parcours de 94 kilomètres, les cyclistes de Volkswagen - Les Ailes (Martin Nuckle, Alexandre Cloutier, Martin St-Laurent et Pascal Choquette) ont respectivement terminé 14e, 24e, 38e et 45e. Tyler Hamilton (US Postal) avait devancé au sprint le Canadien Eric Wohlberg pour lui soutirer la victoire.

Au classement général final, Eric Wohlberg (Saturn) termine au premier rang, suivi des Américians Tyler Hamilton et Matt DeCanio, coéquipier du vainqueur. Pour sa part, Cloutier termine huitième, tandis que ses coéquipiers Nuckle, St-Laurent et Choquette obtiennent la même place que celle obtenue à l'étape de samedi.
