Dionne Wins Tour de Å’Toona!
(courtesy Josée Robitaille)

Yesterday was the end of the Toor de Toona, a 6 day stage race for Pro 1-2 in Pensylvannia. Charles Dionne, 19 years old, riding for Team Radio Energie, was able to take the yellow jersey in yesterday‚s last stage, a 30 mile criterium. Before that last stage, Dionne was in 2nd place, 3 seconds behind leader at the time Elliot Hubbard of Navigators.

Every 5 laps, there was time bonification - 4sec, 2sec and 1sec. For Team Radio Energie, the plan was to lead out Charles for that first sprint, take the yellow jersey and then send 2 riders in a break to get Team GC (Radio Energie were 5 sec. behind Navigators in the team standings). Everything went as planned: Dionne won the sprint, so he was now the leader with 1sec on Hubbard. Then Jack Landry from Radio Energie broke away with Chris Wherry for Saturn. Things were looking good for both of them, until Landry broke his rear wheel and front derailleur. Neutral support gave him a 56cm bike - Jack usually rides on a 60cm. But he went back in the break, looking like a guy who just stole a bike! There was now more riders in the break: Eric Wohlberg from Shaklee, Mark McCormak from Saturn, Sylvain Beauchamp Radio Energie, and David Clinger from Mercury. They were going quite fast, and things were looking really good for Radio Energie for the Team GC. Behind, Navigators were chasing to close the gap, they had help from some other riders, then Landry was not able to stay in the lead group, having too many problems handling the bike. He got back in the main pack, with almost 5 laps to go. Wohlberg and McCormack then broke away and made it to the finish - Eric Wohlberg won, and Mark McCormak ended up second. Radio Energie didn't make enough time to take over the Team GC, so they ended up second - only 5 sec. behind Navigators after 6 days of racing!!!!!!

No need to say that Charles Dionne was really ,really happy. For him, it was a major victory. Team Radio Energie started Toor de Toona with only 4 riders: Dionne, Beauchamp, Landry and Chevrier, with these 4 guys Radio Energie were able to be really agressive and were in the action all the time. Team effort was the most important thing and all the guys were ready to work really hard to win the Toor de Toona. Charles Dionne won, but at the end he was ready to share the yellow jersey with all his teammates, however, the jersey was not big enough to fit all of them in it!

The team would also like to share this victory with all their sponsors: Radio Energie, Specialized, Boost, Oakley, OGC, Pedro's, Toyota. Thanks everybody for being part of the team.
