International trio tops men's race

Today's circuit race around the Boerner Botanical Gardens in Milwaukee's south suburbs featured a super-fast course that prevented any breaks from going. A major part of that prevention was the Advantage Benefits/Endeavour team led by sprint leader Frank Pipp. With three laps to go, the team assembled on the front to bring a three-man break back and to set-up Australian Karl Menzies. However, the team worked too well and brought the break back a little early, leaving Menzies to deal with a field sprint. Coming from the outside spoiling the local team's show was Argentinian sprinter Juan Jose Haedo (Colavita/Sutter Home), beating Menzies with a well-timed a bike throw.

"Whoa man, that was so fast -- it had to be one of the fastest races of the year!" Haedo told Cyclingnews after the race. "Menzies went far from the last corner -- he tried to move across so I used a track move to find a gap."

In a repeat from yesterday's sprint for second place, Haedo was able to pip Menzies on the line, though not after a hard effort from Menzies. "I went into the last corner about fourth and just hit it from the bottom [of the climb,]" Menzies explained. "I tried to go as inside as possible but [Haedo] got me with a bike throw."

Nonetheless, the Advantage Benefits/Endeavour team showed their ability to take control thanks to a wealth of riders in their arsenal. Team leader Frank Pipp says to look for the team on Friday as the team competes in their sponsor's title race -- The Schlitz Park Endeavour Challenge.

Long gets a little help from her friends

Series leader Magen Long (OBRU/The Bicycle Store) has worried all week that she and her only teammate, sprint leader Kelly Benjamin, would not be able to defend their leads with other teams and riders focusing so much on attacking them. Thankfully for Long and Benjamin, the calvary arrived -- in the form of veteran racer Sherri Stedje. With two teammates able to rotate chasing down any break, Long was able to sit comfortably in what she calls the 'sprinter's lounge' all day until the field sprint, which she powered away with ahead of Dotsie Cowden (Colavita/ Cooking Light) and Catherine Powers (TDS Schwalbe.)

"It was so much better because I had another teammate!" said a relieved Long after the race. "With Sherri here it is much easier -- we each had an extra rest." Second place Dotsie Cowden was content to ride in the pack today after a tough rain-soaked stage yesterday. "I thought I had a chance attacking on the hill -- that's how I won last year."

Even though all of the breaks had been brought back with two laps remaining, a confident rider from New Zealand with nothing to lose boldly hung an attack out for a time. Riding for the New Zealand development squad, Jo Ryder took a page from her triathalon background and tried to time trial to the end. "Since we are a development squad our manager said we should try anything." Even though her attack didn't work, the women's races are clearly stepping up as they head into the final four races of their series.

Junior men jockey for world's spots

Caleb Fairly (Hot Tubes) rode away from his two-man breakaway to slide into the overall lead in the selection series for the Junior World Championships Team headed to Austria next month. Fairly rode for much of the 100km race within a break and then in the closing laps with just Steven Howard (Advantage Benefits Endeavour Cycling Club.)

"[Howard] was strong all day, but I thought I had a good chance of beating him in the sprint," said Fairly. "The tactics for the team today was to attack and keep attacking."
