Stage 1 - March 1: Elite Men Grand Prix, 40 mi

Borrajo claims victory a lap ahead of the field

By Kirsten Robbins in Merced, California

Alejandro Borrajo (Colavita/Sutter Home presented by Cooking Light) worked his way back to the front of the field and swept up a victory over Chris Horner (Astana) and Ben Jacques-Maynes (Bissell). The trio formed a three-rider breakaway and lapped the field on the Merco Credit Union Downtown Grand Prix's penultimate lap.

"We worked well together during the break, but I didn't want to catch the group because I had a little bit of fear sprinting from the bunch," said race winner Borrajo. "I am used to sprinting but I prefer to win a sprint in a less dangerous way. It's more difficult to work your way back up through the group on the wheels of other riders."

Strong winds played a factor in the 50-lap event when a nine-rider break split off the front of the peloton. Horner's well-seasoned fitness and diesel-like engine arguably had the most significant effect on the break's consistent 40 second separation from the field.

After several unsuccessful attacks, the single Astana rider launched himself off the front with eight riders in tow and never looked back. His initial break away companions included Borrajo and Jacques-Maynes along with Tyler Wren (Colavita/Sutter Home), Kayle Leogrande (Rock Racing), Richard England (Bissell), Daniel Holloway (VMG), Adrian Garrits (Kahala-LaGrange) and Canadian national road champion Cameron Evans (Symmetrics).

The break looked to be working well together, holding a sizeable lead over a field chase led by Rock Racing and California Giant Berry Farms. After the third prime Horner recognized some riders not working as hard and threw down one final attack that shattered the break, taking with him Borrajo and Jacques-Maynes.

"I know the other two riders were very strong, but it was no problem for me to rotate through with them in our break," said Borrajo, regarding the time trailing ability of both Jacques-Maynes and Horner. "Maybe in a time trail they are stronger but in this type of race in a break away there were no problems because in Argentina the races are always flat and windy with breakaways - I'm used to that."

The three riders continued to round the course gaining ground on the field and once in sight, Horner used his efforts to close the gap despite the opposition from Borrajo and Jacques-Maynes, who felt that a bunch sprint would be too dangerous. "I wanted to lap the group because I love the chaos of a sprint, maybe not when I'm on the same lap as everyone but when I'm one lap up on everyone it's nice because all I have to do is follow a good sprinter," said Horner.

"Both guys were sitting on me for two full laps until I closed the gap to the field with three laps to go," he added. "It took me a lot of energy to do that and it took a lot of energy to get back up to the front, but I wanted that kind of comfortable chaos. I knew if I went head-to-head with Borrajo he was going to win in a clean sprint like that. Maybe if we were mixed up in the field, with chaos and bumping, I'd have a better chance at winning."

With two laps to go, the three riders worked their way from the back of the field up to the front with the help of their respective teams, while the remaining six riders were reabsorbed into the peloton. Borrajo acknowledged his team's effort in helping him take the win as a sign of good communication. "My team worked great today," said Borrajo whose team-mate Sebastian Haedo claimed the bunch sprint for fourth. "They helped me when I regained contact with the field and I started to speak with my other team-mates about what needed to be done in the final sprint."

While Borrajo claims to like the style of racing in the USA as compared to Europe or South America, he acknowledge the intense concentration needed to race successfully. Furthermore, his race rival Horner commented his dual ability to compete in the highest level of stage racing in the world, while maintaining a love for criterium racing in his home state.

"I've done this race many times and I grew up doing this style of criterium racing," said the Tour de France contender. "I've been a criterium rider my whole life, more than anything. If you grow up racing bikes in the States, that's what you are. If you can't ride a crit then you can't make a living."
