The hype for Sunday's SuperCup series final was inevitable. Following on the heels of the US National Championships the previous day, the SuperCup was heralded as a grudge match, a chance for those denied a stars and stripes jersey to prove that while they may have not been the best on that day, they could easily be the best on any day.
Witness Tim Johnson (Saturn), whose front flat late in the race robbed him of all but several seconds of a lead that he spent the entire race building. Or Anne Grande (Kona-Voicestream), the four time SuperCup champion who also watched her chance at victory ride away when she suffered two minutes of terrible luck that led to a flat, a crash, and a lost contact lens. There were also the contenders, those whose names were tossed about as potential national champions, but who missed the move, ran a barrier when they might have jumped it, or simply didn't have the legs.
To up the ante even further in the women's race, Canadian Lyne Bessette (Saturn) arrived in Baltimore to add her hand to the mix. In her first season on a 'cross bike, Bessette dominated the early half of the season, leaving everyone wondering if she could be beaten. Grande proved it was possible, if difficult, at the Chicago SuperCup. Now, Bessette's stopover would mean not only another challenger, but also a battle for prestige, since Baltimore marked the first time that Alison Dunlap (Clif Bar), Grande and Bessette would all set foot on a 'cross course at the same time.
It looked like the promised showdown would indeed take place when Bessette took the holeshot and dragged the field through the first half lap by the scruff of its collective neck. By the time the riders reached the steep but rideable grass climb on the lower half of the course, Bessette had already paired with Dunlap at the front, with Grande chasing ahead of Carmen D'Aluisio (Clif Bar). Dunlap was content to let Bessette take the lead with her notoriously fast start.
"For the first lap I was sitting on. I knew Lyne was working really hard, and my plan was to start attacking her after she slowed down, and that's what I did," Dunlap said. Indeed, after several probing accelerations, Dunlap unleashed a vicious attack and, like yesterday, it became the Alison show. Shortly, the gap was six seconds, and Bessette was clearly in trouble. By then, D'Aluisio and Grande had teamed up to mount a chase, and quickly caught Bessette.
Given Bessette's season long romp over SuperCup fields, D'Aluisio was surprised to close in on the Saturn rider on the course. "I was really surprised to see her. I didn't know if she's gone down or clipped a barrier. I was wondering, 'is that Lyne, or somebody warming up on the course or what?'"
While Bessette would recover well enough to hold on to a very respectable fourth place finish, she quickly faded under the heat of D'Aluisio and Grande's pace. "Those girls were really strong today. They made me suffer. I wanted to make them suffer, but I guess I only did in the first few laps and then they caught back onto me. I almost got them back but then I crashed in the hurdles," the Canadian rider noted.
Though the chasers were making progress through the field, Dunlap's lead swelled to an insurmountable 19 seconds, and the places were set, with the newly crowned world mountain bike champion taking her second win of what she describes as "the second best weekend of my year." D'Aluisio managed to outsprint the on-form Grande to complete the Clif Bar squad's second one-two finish of the weekend, while Grande took enough points to secure her fifth consecutive SuperCup title.
After such a dominating performance on the weekend, it is hard to doubt that Dunlap, who seems to be gaining the sort of first name status usually reserved for religious figures, Madonna, and possibly Lance, is ready to make an impact at the upcoming world championships in Zolder, Belgium. "The Europeans are really, really tough and we've got a tough job ahead of us, but we have a phenomenal team and we're going to give them a run for their money," she promised.
In the men's elite event, the heavy hitters looking to salvage some weekend results were active early on, with 'cross stalwart Dale Knapp taking the lead off the line, only to be attacked immediately and repeatedly by a fired up Johnny Sundt. Subsequent attacks by nearly everyone on the 'favorites' list soon whittled down the men's field to what would amount to a royal breakaway on the road- Saturn teammates Johnson and Mark McCormack, Mongoose pairing Marc Gullickson and Todd Wells, Alex Candelario (Big Shark-Cannondale, European-based Jonathan Page (Richard Sachs), mountain bike mainstay Travis Brown, and Knapp. Only Sundt was conspicuously absent, perhaps a victim of his own early aggression.
As the group passed through the paved start-finish area, Wells, clad in his new stars and stripes jersey, threw down a strong attack,leaving the other favorites to look for someone willing to chase. Following some brief gesturing and conversation, Johnson cracked first as Wells' advantage hit the six second mark. McCormack then proceeded to take over the chase to guard Saturn's chances from another defeat at the hands of Mongoose's Wells and Gullickson.
Constant attacks amounted to nothing within the vigilant lead group until the fifth lap, when Gullickson came to the fore to make his first serious effort of the day on the upper section of the fast, open course. Page made the painful effort to latch on, and the ensuing chase finally succeeded in breaking up the party of 8.
McCormack, who had continually fought his way back to the lead group to aid in Johnson's efforts, was the first to pop, followed by Wells, who was dropped when Johnson mounted his chase with Candelario hanging on. With the group behind now shattered, the pursuit was on. But with Candelario not contributing, Johnson was unable to match the pace set by Gullickson and Page. Johnson would draw to within five seconds, but a subsequent attack by Page upped the pace and pushed their lead back into double digits.
With just several hundred yards remaining, Page made his play, accelerating into the final barriers in an attempt to get away from Gullickson. He nearly didn't. The crowd gasped as Page clipped the final barrier, losing his balance for a split-second that seemed to play out in slow-motion, but he managed to keep his feet under him, remount, and tear to the line.
Gullickson had nothing but positive comments on Page's fairly fought win. "I give him a lot of credit - he wasn't just sitting on and letting me do all the work. He was smart on the last lap - he made me do the last lap pull and got the jump on me. I knew at that point that that was my only hope - if he clipped a hurdle or something, but he held it together. He was sliding out on the last corner on the pavement, but to get the win sometimes you have to put it all on the line."
Gullickson could afford to be gracious. His second place showing sealed his bid to repeat as the SuperCup series champion. "I got the consistency award. It would have been really sweet to have won the final, but I'll take what I have."
Behind, Candelario came around Johnson, using his fresher legs to end his season with a third-place ride, while Brown would trail in for a strong fifth-place showing.
Page, who has spent the past season living in Switzerland and dueling with the European professionals, downplayed the usefulness of his Euro-experience on Sunday's roadie-friendly course. "I'm used to my little ring and a lot of mud and this is a lot, lot faster. It felt more like it was a big criterium race."
Regardless of the relevance of his preparation, Page was clearly glad to take a victory on the weekend, even if it wasn't the national championship. "I wish it was yesterday, but today's good as well."
