   Redlands Wrap Up: A Final Perspective


By Rob Karman, correspondent

The 2002 edition of the Redlands Bicycle Classic gets underway in Southern California Wednesday with the Saturn of Loma Linda Mt. Rubidoux Time Trial. First held last year, the 5 km climb to the summit of Mt. Rubidoux starts in Riverside's Fairmont Park and winds upward through a neighborhood of beautiful old houses with a few short descents and numerous sharp corners that test the riders power, skill and nerve.

It was here last year that Canadians Roland Green and Genevieve Jeanson set the tone for the week with commanding wins. Jeanson would go on to dominate for the remainder of the week taking time out of her rivals on almost every stage, while Green would eventually lose the leader's jersey to Saturn's Trent Klasna.

Thursday's stage 2 is the Arrowhead RMC Highland Circuit race. Typically a chance for the sprinters to strut their stuff, this race was marked last year by a spectacular crash involving Saturn teammates Ina Teutenberg and Lynne Bessette.

Stage 3 starts in Redlands and winds through many communities in San Bernadino county before climbing the steep grade to Oak Glen. It was here last year that Trent Klasna of Saturn got in an early move and benefited from the hesitation of powerhouse teams Mercury and US Postal as they argued over who should chase the break. Green showed the incredible climbing power that would help him win the MTB World Cup and World Championships later in the season by bring back considerable time on the final ascent to Oak Glen, but it was too little too late as Klasna pulled the leaders jersey on that night and held it until the end.

Saturday brings the contest of the American criterium to the streets of downtown Redlands. Last year saw GC favorites Trent Klasna of Saturn and Chris Horner of Mercury gain a minute on Roland Green by lapping the field on the fast and furious 9 corner circuit.

Stage 5 wraps things up on Sunday with the Sunset Road Race. A steep up and down marathon on a residential circuit in Redlands. Jeanson attacked on lap one last year and put 7 minutes into the field last year despite having a comfortable lead at the start of the day, while Mercury and US Postal did their best to snatch the leaders jersey from Klasna on the final day.

At the early season races this year it looks like defending champion Genevieve Jeanson is once again in fine form with likely challenges coming from fellow Canadian Lyne Bessette of Team Saturn and reigning MTB World Champ and former Redlands winner Alison Dunlap of the newly formed Luna Chix Team. Saturn's Ina Teutenberg has been on fire lately and although known as a sprinter has been climbing particularly well in recent weeks and could provide a 1 - 2 punch for Saturn.

On the men's side there are many potential winners. Roland Green is back, though with the Canadian National Team this year instead of US Postal who picked him up last year just for Redlands through their association with Trek, who Green rides for on the dirt. Returning champion Klasna has been fairly quiet so far this season, but will no doubt be ready to defend, and former winner Chris Horner has moved from Mercury to the roaring upstart Prime Alliance Team who have made their presence very well known so far this season. Horner brings U23 TT Champ Danny Pate for reinforcement.
