Trek-VW Report

The third stop of the UCI World Cup was an all gravity affair with round two for the Downhill and 4X events. Situated at the top of 21 very famous switchbacks, Alpe d'Huez has a heritage rich in cycling history as a longtime fixture as a stage finale for the Tour de France.

The week's practice sessions were graced with sunny blue skies and light breezes. The newly designed 4X course was met with much apprehension and disdain from riders and staff members alike. With some minor revisions and still not completely satisfactory, the course was set for competition on Saturday. During the morning qualifying runs, many of the riders opted for their longer travel downhill bikes to help with the length of the course and the rough terrain. Trek-Volkswagen's Mio Suesmasa struggled a bit on her run, qualifying in 12th place. Teammate Wade Bootes had better luck in his run finishing a solid 5th place.

The evening's 4X finals were delayed a bit at the start due to gondola lift service glitches. Just as the first bracket of athletes entered the gate, the rain began! As the sky opened up the course became very slippery and muddy with very little traction. Consequently, the racing was rife with crashes and the competition was less than spectacular. In the women's race Suemasa was eliminated early, finishing 15th on the day as Tracey Moseley (Kona-Clarks) took the victory over Katrina Miller (Jamis), Sabrina Jonnier (Intense) and Tara Llanes (Giant-Pearl Izumi). In the men's event, Wade Bootes advanced through his earlier rounds but was eliminated in the 1/4 finals to a 9th place finish overall. Eric Carter (Mongoose-Hyundai) took the gold followed by Michael Prokop (Arthur Racing), Scott Beaumont (Beaumont Racing) and Cedric Gracia (Siemens Mobile - Cannondale). With these results, the Trek-Volkswagen team remains at the lead of the UCI Trade Team competition for 4X.

Sunday morning reinstated the sunny skies with very warm temperatures much to the delight of all athletes and staff. Again, morning began with qualifying runs, this time for the downhill event. Trek-Volkswagen's Mio Suemasa finished in 16th position on the high speed and open course. Certainly no major surprises greeted the decidedly French crowd as reigning World Champion Anne-Caroline Chausson (Commencal) dominated the qualifying run by nearly 3 1/2 seconds over second place. Into the afternoon's final runs, Celine Gros (Morzine-Avoriaz) locked in 3rd place with Tracy Moseley (Kona-Clarks) in silver and Anne-Caroline Chausson taking the victory. Trek-Volkswagen's Mio Suemasa retained her qualifying place in the finals, finishing in 16th place.
