Roswell Criterium Roswell, Georgia, April 21
Report courtesy Mercury

Mercury's Henk Vogels started today's 1st annual Historic Roswell Criterium with good form. A big crowd turnd out in the historic district that dates back to early America. Being a first year event, the Mercury team did a quick recon of the course early Sunday morning. With 2 long narrow straights and 5 tight turns, the team knew a small group could get away and stay away.

With that in mind, Vogels made the first attack early in the race. Quickly a group of 5 went clear. The group contained Vogels, Leiswyn 7-UP), McCook Prime Alliance), Johnson Schroeder), and hometown hero Chris Pic Jittery Joes). Both Saturn and Navigators missed the move and after several failed attempt to bridge accros, the Navigators put their team on the front to bring back the group.

With 30 minutes left of the 85 minute event, the lead was 38 seconds and growing. It was quickly apparent that the winner of the race would come from the 5. With 6 laps to go, an attack from Vogels split the group to 3 in the front. It was Leiswyn, McCook, and Vogels to battle.

Behind, the pack was looking for a leader, and with 3 laps to go, Mercury was on the front for Gord Fraser to bring back the remaining 2 dropped riders. With the Mercury train at full steam, the breakaway soon was in danger of being caught on the last lap. A strong move by Leiswyn held off the group but gave a great leadout for Vogels who was clear by several meters at the finish. Mercury had to get off the gas to make sure that they did not catch their man in front. The hesitation gave Jonus Carney 4th with Fraser 5th.

This first annual Mt Humboldt Classic of a mere 47 miles, featured 3 miles of dusty and rutted dirt roads and 7500ft of grueling climbing culminating with the 4 mile 12% grade climb to the summit of Mt Humboldt. Phil Zajicek of Mercury attacked decisively before the worst of the dirt sections to enter the final climb with a 30 second lead, behind Drew Miller and Scott Price of Landis Trek VW worked together and set up Miller to catch and pass Zajicek for the win. In the B Race, Kelli Emmett riding for Luna won in the only sprint of the day over local tough guy, Steve Stuart of RPM.


We have a report that at the Chestnut Ridge Road Race (April 21,Buffalo NY) Canadians did a clean sweep of the Pro 1,2,3 Men's race (Stirling McArther of Gears took 1st) and that Garnett Abbey won the Masters. We are still awaiting any sort of official results.....
