Day 7 - July 12: U23 men's road race

Jenkins outlasts break companions for win

The 2007 USA Cycling National Festival in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania, continued Thursday as 20 year-old Max Jenkins (California Giant-Specialized) rode to a national title in the men's U23 road race. Jenkins outlasted his nine breakaway companions and the remainder of the 176-rider field to complete the 138-kilometer course in 3:32:52. The victory was the first national title for Jenkins, who placed ninth a year ago.

Jenkins rode across the line alone, 11 seconds ahead of silver medalist Chris Monteleone (NC/Time), followed by third-place finisher Todd Nordblom (Fiordifrutta) at 17 seconds. Last year's junior national champion, Chris Barton (Vendee U) finished fourth in his first season of U23 competition, 42 seconds off the pace and reigning U23 cyclo-cross national champion, Jesse Anthony (Kodak Gallery-Sierra Nevada), rounded out the five-man podium, 50 seconds back.

In the only competition of the day, the nation's top young cyclists contested three laps of a 46-kilometer circuit. After a relatively uneventful first lap, the second lap was punctuated by a solo breakaway from mountain biker and USA Cycling National Development Team member, Colin Cares, before the move was caught and the deck reshuffled. Halfway through the final lap, a ten-man breakaway established itself, containing Jenkins, Nordblom, Monteleone, Barton, Peter Salon, Graham Howard (Priority Health), Kirk Carlsen (Rubicon), Alex Welch (Mercy-Specialized), Andrew Dahlheim, and Jim Camut (Cycling Center Power). The group worked well together to maintain its distance from the peloton and amassed a two-minute advantage before the selective terrain helped split the leaders apart. As the advantage began to erode, Jenkins was able to maintain a strong enough pace to drop the rest of the breakaway and hold off the hard-chasing field behind.

"I could see the other guys in the breakaway were struggling on the climbs," said Jenkins after his victory, "but I was more worried about the field catching us, so I just got to the front and rode as hard as I could. I didn't really attack. I just opened up a gap and kept going."

Clearly the strongest rider in the breakaway, Jenkins held off Monteleone up the final climb in the closing kilometer to score his first victory of the season.

Racing resumes Friday with the balance of time trial competitions including junior riders aged 10-18, and U23 men and women.
