Victoria, Canada World Track Cup, Round 2, May 29-31, 1998:Robert Jones from Canadian Cyclist is providing direct reports from Victoria of the second round in the World Track Cup. Here is his second report from Day 1.
The final day for the Victoria Track World Cup has dawned as sunny as
the previous 2, although it is a little cooler and windier than
yesterday. So far we have had the women’s 500M time trial, won by
Michelle Ferris of Australia (now 3 for 3 this weekend) and Keirin first
round qualifying. The Keirin repechages and the Olympic Sprint
qualifying are taking place as this is posted.
The final session of this World Cup track meet in Victoria, B.C. began
with the women’s Points race. Lucy Tyler-Sharman (AUS) took her second
gold medal of the meet in a strongly contested 20 kilometre race of 25
riders from 14 countries. Wind played a strong part in the race, with
no one able to take a lap on the field. Tyler-Sharman and Olga
Slioussareva (RUS) battled through the race, with the Australian taking
points in 4 sprints, and the Russian in 5. This put the two neck and
neck at 12 points each going into the final (double point) sprint.
Tyler-Sharman wound it up early, with Slioussareva desperately hanging
onto her wheel. Coming out the last corner, the Russian managed to pull
up even with Tyler-Sharman’s back wheel, but that was as far as she
could get, leaving Tyler-Sharman to take the points and the

Pink Shirt StolenLaurent Roux lost his pink shirt twice. First in the stage on Friday and on Sunday after his shirt was stolen. "It was the shirt I wore on Friday. Even though the organisation will give me a new shirt, it will have less symbolic value for me", the TVM-rider said.
New York State, Enchanted Mountain Stage Race, May 29-31Stage 2, Road Race
The second stage of the Enchanted Mountain Stage Race wound through lush green hills and farmland of western New York, and included numerous steep climbs. The terrain was enough to thin the men's pack into a solo winner and then two thinned-out packs behind, while the women's field simply shattered.
The 75-mile men’s race began with a flurry of attacks through the first half of the race, which covered only a few mild hills. The group of 100 remained intact entering the first significant pitch at mile 45, but after more than a mile of the 12 percent grade, the field was in one long string with gaps opening up. A scant five miles later, on the next obstacle - a two mile grind up Dutch Hill - Mercury's Matt Anand made his move. Sitting in second overall after the time trial, Anand set an unmatchable pace up Dutch Hill, and the chase group of seven could only watch him ride away. He soloed the final 20 miles of the race to snag the win and take the overall lead.
The 48-mile women's race was owned by the Saeco-Timex squad. Time trial winner Elizabeth Emery (Saturn) found she had little help as teammate Dede Demet's derailleur shifted into the spokes of her rear wheel, forcing Demet to change bikes, with teammate Karen Bliss-Livingston dropping back with Demet. After rolling through the feed zone with a lead group still intact, Saeco-Timex riders Suzy Pryde and Pam Schuster, along with Shaklee's Louisa Jenkins, emerged as the lead trio. Using textbook tactics, the Saeco-Timex riders worked over Jenkins, with Schuster slipping away with a mile left to take the stage and the overall lead.
Men, 75 miles: 1. Matt Anand (Mercury), Calgary, Alb., Canada; 2. Tom Davis (Team Jeep), Mashpee, Mass.; 3. Patrick Heaney (Lombardi’s), San Jose, Calif.; 4. Curt Davis (Wheelworks), Branford, Conn.; 5. Kevin Monahan (Breakaway Couriers), Northampton, Mass. Women, 48 miles 1. Pam Schuster (Saeco-Timex), Northridge, Calif.; 2. Suzy Pryde (Saeco- Timex), Auckland, New Zealand; 3. Louisa Jenkins (Shaklee), Boulder, Colo.; 4. Elizabeth Emery (Saturn), New York, N.Y.; 5. Joan Wilson (Celestial Seasonings), Palo Alto, Calif.
Stage 3, Baxter/Snow Memorial Criterium
The final stage of the Enchanted Mountain stage race provided no major upsets to the overall competition, but this technical criterium course provided plenty of excitement. With eight corners packed into a 0.85-mile loop, along with numerous painted crosswalks causing slick corners, the race leaders were kept anxious.
The 60 rider women's pack quickly began thinning out in the first few laps, before a four-rider breakaway pounded off at the mid-way point of the 23 mile race. The four riders - Saturn's Dede Demet, Giana Roberge and Susy Pryde (both Saeco-Timex), and Joan Wilson (Celestial Seasonings) swelled their lead to 35 seconds at the bell lap. Demet popped out of the last corner in the top spot, almost crashing as her bike slid sideways on a dry but slick crosswalk marking. Pryde wasn't so lucky, as she hit the tarmac right behind. Demet snagged the stage win, with Wilson in second. Race leader Pam Schuster (Saeco- Timex) cruised in with the field 39 seconds later to take the overall win.
The 35-mile Pro-1-2 men's race began without incident, but after just eight laps officials ordered the race neutralized and instructed riders to take cover - lightening was crashing, and rain began pouring down. With the streets soaking wet, many riders and managers were calling for the potentially hazardous stage to not be counted for overall classification. But after a 45-minute delay, and the skies yielding only occasional drizzle, the race continued as planned. Numerous riders chose not to start. On the wet streets, the field began breaking up, with the eventual fallout being a lead pack of only 30 riders. Shooting off the front with 15 laps to go was Iowa Spoke's Jason McCartney, who tempoed away and built his lead to a maximum of 40 seconds. McCartney held on for the win, with GS Mengoni's Oscar Pineda edging Go-Mart's Ashley Powell in the group sprint. Mercury's Matt Anand finished safely in the field to claim the overall win.

Berri Open, South Australia, May 30Chelsey Zucker (Bicycle Express) made history Saturday 30th May 1998 by being the first female rider ever to win the Berri Open in South Australia's Riverland in its 30 odd year old history. Organised by the Norwood Cycling Club, the $2500 value prize will assist in her upcoming holiday to Europe to visit Cousin's Jay and Corey Sweet.
Riding from the 14 minute group in the 80 km handicap race she took the with a 20m lead over the line more reminiscent of Road Sprint cousin Jay. Rick McCaig won the sprint over the line for fastest time just 2 mins behind with an average of over 48kph. Chelsey continued her winning sweep that evening to win the Women's Roller derby before returning to Adelaide to win the Downhill and Cross Country races in the SA MTB series on Sunday.
Rick McCaig won the A grade Criterium on Sunday with criterium specialist Matt Donnon getting second. Matt Alan crossed in third position.
EDS Track Cup, May 29-31, Major Taylor VelodromeAdam Payne (Cox Atlanta Velo) capped a marathon session by winning the men’s kilometer time trial as the second round of the EDS Track Cup continued at Major Taylor Velodrome.
Payne, of Conifer, Colo., won the kilometer time trial in a time of one minute, 6.100 seconds, 1.4 seconds faster than Jason Garner (Ikon-Lexus).
"I’m tremendously surprised," said Payne, who had ridden in a points race heat and team pursuit qualifying earlier in the day. "I thought I was going to be smoked."
Payne also advanced to tonight’s points race final and will be part of the Cox Atlanta Velo team pursuit squad that will compete against Shaklee in that final.
Team Shaklee showed its points race strength as the second round of the EDS Track Cup ’98 continued at Major Taylor Velodrome. Jame Carney led a top-three sweep in the 30km men’s points race, taking two laps and winning five consecutive sprints. Kent Bostick was second, followed by Jonas Carney.
"I had to prove a point," Jame Carney said. "All the right people from the (U.S. Cycling) Federation were here."
His performance puts him in line to represent the United States at the final two UCI World Track Cups next month in Europe.
The Shaklee squad improved upon its second place finish in the team pursuit, where it lost to Cox Atlanta Velo in the final. Shaklee had placed first in qualifying.
In other action, Trey Gannon (Team EDS) won the men’s match sprint, redeeming himself after a poor showing at the World Track Cup last week in Cali, Colombia, where he did not qualify for the first round. Gannon defeated Stephen Alfred (Ikon-Lexus) in two rides in the final.
"Definitely, part of this was making up for Cali," Gannon said.
In the Junior World Track Championship Long Team Trials, Sara Sorensen (UAW- Chrysler) was the top qualifier in the junior women’s match sprint. Sorensen and Michelle Woomer (American Classic) made the Long Team, though Sarah Hammer (Celo Pacific) won the event. Hammer is 15 years old and riders must be 17 or 18 years old to make the Long Team.
Will Frischkorn (Hot Tubes) won the junior men’s individual pursuit event, beating Mike Luther (Arizona Ice Tea) in the final. Both qualified for the Long Team.

A trio of riders earned their second wins of the weekend during the final day of the second round of the EDS Track Cup ’98 at Major Taylor Velodrome.
On a day that saw several rain delays, Trey Gannon (Team EDS) won the keirin in a photo finish, edging Gil Hatton (Team EDS) and Paul Swift (Shaklee). Swift had the lead coming out of the final turn, but left the sprinter’s lane open and Hatton seized it. Swift moved down the track and forced Hatton off the track, but Gannon still won by a whisker thanks to a great bike throw at the line.
"I put my hands up," Gannon said, "but I’ve celebrated losses before."
Swift was relegated to last place for entering the sprinter’s lane during the final sprint when it was already occupied.
Chris Witty (PowerBar) earned her second win of the weekend when she easily won the women’s match sprint, defeating Missy Thompson (Cox Atlanta Velo) in two rides in the final. Thompson tried different tactics in each of the two rides, but was no match for the power of the double Olympic speed skating medalist.
The final double winner of the day was Jame Carney (Shaklee), who combined with his brother, Jonas, to decisively win the Madison. The pair, who have won three national championships in the event, won four of the five sprints to easily out-distance Team EDS.
The surprise of the day came in the Olympic sprint, where the all-junior Tri State Velo team defeated a number of top senior teams. Jason Orowitz, Sam Baker and Giddeon Massie won in a time of one minute, 5.940 seconds.
"Last year, the EDS Cups were a learning experience," Orowitz said. "This year, we came to race."
Four-time women’s individual pursuit national champion Janie Quigley (PowerBar) shook off the effects of a crash in Friday night’s points race to win the pursuit in a time of three minutes, 54.413. Marisa Vande Velde (BMC- WalMart) was second in 3:56.538.
"I’m just really excited about training for the next month and looking toward nationals," said Quigley, who did not compete nationally last year after narrowly missing a berth on the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team.
The EDS Track Cup ’98 continues next month with the EDS National Cycling Championships, June 30-July 4, at the new EDS Superdrome in Frisco, Texas.
