Granogue Cross - C1
Wilmington, USA, October 20, 2007
Johnson ready for European season
By Kirsten Robbins in Granogue, Delaware
The first American to stand on the podium at the cyclo-cross world championships, former U23 medallist Tim Johnson (Canondale/Leer/Cyclocrossworld), opened up a canyon between himself and his team-mate Jeremy Powers and Barry Wicks (Kona) to claim a solo victory. The Granogue event was one of the most challenging cyclo-cross circuits on the North American UCI calendar.
"When I attacked I wanted keep things hard because I thought we were kind of settling down a little bit," said Johnson, while watching his team-mate Powers ride in for second place. "It looked like both Barry and Jeremy were comfortable so I attacked just to see what would happen."
The usual suspects sped through the first 2.9-kilometre circuit, but when they came out of the woodworks at the end of the lap, the race was on between six riders Johnson, Powers, Wicks, Chris Jones (Nerac), Jesse Anthony (Jamis) and Matt White (Fiordifrutta). Wicks tested his legs on the first lap, opening up a small gap on his four competitors but realised his legs weren't up for the challenge when Powers reeled him in just a few minutes later.
Johnson attacked on the third lap when he felt a lull in the group, forcing Wicks to rise to the challenge. Second placed Powers noted that though he and Johnson may have played a little tag team against Wicks, he seemed to be having a bad day and normally would have been able to respond to the tactics.
"I attacked a couple of laps in," said Powers. "Once we regrouped it was just Tim, Chris and Barry and I did another lap on the front before Tim attacked. It's great that we ride under the same banner so I didn't have to chase, leaving a lot of the work to Barry. I don't think Barry was riding like his normal self today because he probably would have closed that gap."
With Johnson long gone on his way to victory and Jones slightly off the back, Powers took the opportunity to gain a sizeable lead on Wick's with three laps to go. "To Barry's defense, I attacked him on the backside of the course right after he did a bunch of work to try to bring Johnson back and I was able to extend it by riding smooth to the finish," added Powers.
Wicks, from Santa Cruz, California, noted that Johnson and Powers had fantastic races and that his performance may have struggled due to his travel schedule in recent weeks. "I think Tim was really motivated after last weekend and all his bad luck," said Wicks. "I just didn't feel that great today, probably the worst I've felt all year and I just didn't have it.
"There's a lot of climbing on this course and so you can't fake it out here," he added. "I tried not to panic when Tim attacked and just rode tempo to hopefully reel him in, try to recover a little bit, but I was pretty gassed after covering attacks. I think the five trips home in the last three weeks have been really hard on me."
Both Johnson and Powers experienced the brutal reality of cyclo-cross mishaps in last weekend's UCI Gran Prix of Gloucester, where they were set back due to multiple crashes and flat tyres. It was a round of bad luck that Johnson credits to his Granogue win.
"I've got to thank the weekend of Gloucester for all the bad luck it gave me because it showed me that I can ride hard for an hour and up until then I wasn't confident that I could do that anymore," said Johnson. "I had a slow start to the season and was feeling a bit of the leftovers from the road. But now it feels good to be back. Jeremy has been riding great all season too and always in the front five of the race. I think when we are off to Europe it will be the two of us having good rides"
Danish national champion Joachim Parbo (CCV Protek) made another appearance in a North American UCI race, while on a two-month quest for points before returning to the European circuit in December. Parbo noted that the Granogue cross course reminded him of the old-school style of cross racing with a lot of climbing and difficult terrain to contend with. "There are two reasons that I'm here racing cyclo-cross in the USA," Parbo noted. "I like to come over here and race in a great atmosphere where everyone is really friendly and willing to talk to one another. There are no posh reactions toward one another, as riders. And the second reason is to get some extra points."
Barholt wins from early lead
Mountain bike sensation Kerry Barnholt (Tokyo Joes/VanDessel) took the early lead in the women's race and held off a chasing Rebecca Wellons (Ridley Factory Team) and Megan Monroe (BMC-Sports Garage) to claim victory. "This course really suits my riding style," said Barnholt, a 2007 US World Championships team member. "It was a super fun course. Even though I normally mountain bike, I did a few cross races last year and really liked it."
Anna Milkowski (Velo Bella) started the 40-minute race in the lead, setting the pace that Barholt took over by the end of the first lap. "Today was a very challenging and technical course which I like and I felt like I had an advantage in those tight cornering spots," said Barnholt.
Barnholt used her strong technical skills to open up a gap on the fast descent after the climb up to the clock tower. Her gap continued to grow until it was too big to close.
With Barnholt off the front the race for second was on between Wellons, Monroe, Milkowski and Maureen Bruno-Roy (Independent Fabrications). Milkowski held onto a significant gap which resulted from chasing Barnholt, but was taken over by Wellons with three laps remaining. Wellons noted that a rough start cost her time while her persistence allowed her to close in for second place.
"I made the mistake of soft-pedaling through a couple of corners where I shouldn't have and a gap opened," said Wellons. "Anna rode awesome the first couple of laps, she was flying but I think I started to bring myself back over the barriers and on the remount after the run up, using my strengths in those spots. I slowly started reeling in Anna and unfortunately she had an accident that set her back.
"This course has a lot of elevation change, more than any other course we ride," added Wellons. "The climbs take a lot out of you and there are only a couple of spots to rest. You have to jump in and out of every corner."
Monroe won a two up sprint for third place against Bruno Roy, admitting that she may have had a slight advantage. "I had a rough start so I tried to keep jumping from group to group to catch back up," said Monroe. "I saw that there was no one between Rebecca and me and Maureen and no one close behind us either. The climbs really favored Maureen and the flat sections were better suited to me so I think I had a slight advantage over her on the flat, paved finish."
