Washington D.C., USA, May 27, 2000
Wet and slippery conditions marked the men's and women's criteriums that made up the Washington Capitol Cup, however crashes were relatively few. The women's race was won by Charles Schwab's Katrina Berger in a solo break starting from early in the race. Despite attempts from Autotrader.com to chase her down, the rain made it too difficult to keep things going around the tight circuit. The bunch sprint was won by Mina Pizzini (P&G) from Jen Dial, of Proteus.com.

John Lieswyn's report
100km, 50 laps, 2km city circuit with 7+ turns. Rain.
Memorial Day weekend in DC. There are thousands of tourists, veterans, and bankers on Harleys checking out the memorials all over downtown despite the rain.
I spent Thursday flying to Greenville SC to pick up my car which needs to get to the northeast for my impending cross country move. Friday I drove 9 hours. All in all I got 90 minutes of riding in over the last 2 days, so my legs didn't feel very strong as the race got going. After 13 laps my teammate Sylvain Beauchamp opened a gap behind me and shouted "go!".
I really didn't want to be in a long breakaway - It was hard to follow Mercury's Steve Zampieri as he was going really well especially in the corners. After several laps together at a lead of about 15 seconds, another Mercury man Henk Vogels joined us. Now this guy had horsepower. Hanging on for dear life, I conceded the race to Henk and Steve. I would try and help, I wouldn't sprint at the finish, and take 3rd. Henk seemed fine with it but every time that I couldn't take a turn at the front Steve would open a gap and let Henk go. My big tactical error was in not staying glued to Henk's wheel. Zampieri didn't have the juice to stay away by himself but Henk certainly could. At 16 laps to go I called Steve's bluff when he opened a gap. The best I could do against these guys was 3rd while back in the pack Sylvain and our sprinter Dave McCook could potentially improve on that. I thought for sure Mercury wouldn't give up a guaranteed 1-2 finish. I was wrong as Steve totally quit pedaling and Henk was gone solo.
In half a lap Steve and I looked at each other as we lost a 35 second lead on the field. Team 7Up (who'd been chasing the three of us for half an hour) blew to bits and quit chasing at the same time. Henk built his lead to over a minute. Back in the group I was furious at Steve & Mercury and furious at myself for giving up a podium finish. In the interest of saving strength for tomorrow's Clarendon Cup (another stop on the US Pro Tour, with double today's prizemoney) I dropped out at 8 laps to go. There will be no quitting and no excuses for me tomorrow.
Mercury won the race but didn't sweep the podium as Robbie Ventura (Saturn) finally found his legs to finish 2nd, and Shaklee's powerhouse sprinter Dave McCook took 3rd. Yeah Dave! Over and out.
