March 14/98 9:39 am - Canadians Win in Hawaii and Arizona

Posted by Editor on 03/14/98

Tour of Hawaii

Canadians dominated the 16 km point to point second stage of the Hawaiian Tour yesterday, with Chrissy Redden taking the womens race and Roland Green the mens. With her win, Chrissy moves up to third on GC, behind Tammy Jacques of Schwinn and Alison Dunlap (GT); unfortunately Chris was unable to supply us with the mens GC, other than to say Jerome Chiotti (GT) still leads. Our correspondent (Chris Redden of Team Schwinn Canada - thanks Chris!) tells us that the stage took place in and around Jurrasic Valley - filming site for the dino movie. The riders faced a 2.5 km climb, with a 100 m section of bike‚n hike that was barely a foot wide! In the afternoon there was a 2 minute downhill stage, that had no effect on GC, and was treated with caution by the top riders. Go Here to see a photo of Chrissy winning (photo courtesy Ritchey).
