Mark McCormack (Colavita Olive Oil) repeated his last-minute win from a year ago at the top of Appalachian Gap, while 49-year-old Anne-Marie Miller (Verizon Wireless-Wheelworks) scored the biggest win of her career in Sunday's Mad River Road Race stage of the 2004 Green Mountain Stage Race. McCormack, the defending race winner, picked his way through a tiring field in the closing kilometers of the men's 103-mile road race, catching late-race breakaway riders Dominique Perras (Ofoto-Lombardi Sports) and Charles Dionne (Webcor Builders) with less than two kilometers to go.

On a day that saw the 111-rider men's field cover 103 miles with over 10,500 feet of elevation gain and three sustained climbs, patience and teamwork proved the winning formula. After letting teammates Tyler Wren and Todd Herriott work in the day's main breakaway, allowing the 2003 USPRO champion to ride safely in the chasing field, McCormack came to the front as the dwindling men's peloton broke to pieces on the agonizingly steep pitches of the App Gap climb. Hopscotching his way though small groups of riders, mindful to stay out the fierce headwind that toughened the climb even further, McCormack kept his cool as the dangerous Perras/Dionne duo went up the road. But as he did last year when he reeled in Mark Walters (Navigators) within sight of the finish, McCormack remained patient, knowing full well how hard the final kilometer would prove.

"You could tell they were dying," said McCormack. "I came up to them in my big chainring and carried a lot of momentum through. I had to shift down to the little ring for the final pitch, but Charles couldn't get back up to me."

With Dionne languishing 10 meters behind, McCormack had enough time and energy to muster a smile as he crossed the windswept finish. Perras faded to fifth, while Peter Baker (Snow Valley) scooped up the final podium spot. Based on the points from his stage win McCormack took the leader's jersey heading into Monday's criterium in downtown Burlington.

Miller entered the final climb of the women's 64-mile event with a three-and-a-half minute cushion and needed almost every second of that lead to earn the win. Overall race leader Amy Moore (Quark Cycling) came within 30 seconds of catching Miller, but the strategy of getting a big lead and holding on for dear life worked out perfectly for the New York City-based personal trainer. Miller described her great escape as something approximating an accident: she looked around at one point and saw she was all alone on the road. And with a bad history on App Gap to fuel her fire, Miller was off on her solo adventure.

"The first year they had this race I bonked so bad on this climb," said Miller. "Since then I've been looking for redemption in this race."

Moore finished second on the day, further cementing her hold on the race leader's jersey. Hiroko Shimada finished just behind Moore for third place on the day.
