Steamworks Tour de Gastown
Report Courtesy Todd Hansen, OISI Distributor for Moser, Carrera, Picci

Women (30 laps)
It was a perfect evening for the second Steamworks Gastown Grand Prix.
44 Women contested the first race of the evening and warmed up the crowd nicely.

At the gun, Ina Teutenberg was quick to set a hot pace and she opened a gap in the early laps. Alison Sydor then made her move to join Teutenberg. The two then worked hard and rapidly started to take time out of the group - with 20 laps to go they had a 55 second lead. With just 5 laps to go the duo had lapped the field. Not content to sit in, Teutenberg moved back up through the bunch and started another attack. Sydor took a few minutes to get her wind while in the group, then she too jumped away from the field in pursuit of Teutenberg. On the last lap Sydor came within 5 seconds of Teutenberg and the hometown favourite had the crowd roaring. The bunch finished 5 laps earlier and Andreas Hannos of Team Rona-Esker took the field sprint for 3rd.

Great race, I would hate to see Teutenberg race on a good hair day, cause on bad hair days she's phenomenal!

Men (60 laps)
Approximately 140 Men lined up at the start of the second annual Steamworks Gastown Grand Prix. For the first six laps it was Eric Wolberg setting the pace and getting things going. For the first half of the race Jelly Belly, Prime Alliance & Saturn cleaned up most of the Primes.

On Lap 40 there was a split of 7 riders off the front which soon grew over the next 2 laps to 15 riders but with no Healthnet riders in the break. By lap 45 the front of the peloton was green Healthnet green as they chased. Once the Healthnet train started their pursuit the gap started to diminish. But the crowd was in suspense.

With just 2 laps to go Healthnet caught the leaders and Gord was set to unleash hell on what was left of the pack. It was great to see the most winningest rider in North America do his thing! Cipo lookout..

Other notable mentions: One local rider Cam Evans riding for Broadmark out of Seattle showed some of his form and took a couple of Primes on laps 39 & 41 and Kenny Williams riding for Saturn of Seattle took a $250.00 prime on lap 23

Top BC rider was Luca Segato riding for CDS out of Victoria
