Women - 99.8 km

Longo wins her 36th

The 99.8 km women's road race in Argenton-sur-Creuse today once again became a battle for second place, as the indomitable Frenchwoman Jeannie Longo (Ile de France) took her 36th national title with a margin of 3'00 to second place. Longo had escaped with six others shortly after the start of the race, and that turned out to be the crucial move with Sonia Huguet (Lorraine) and Cathy Marsal (Intersports) sprinting in for second and third.

The break consisted of Longo, Huget, Marsal, Sophie Creux (Dauphiné-Savoie), Juliette Vandekerckove (Flandre-Artois), Sandrine Marcuz and Magali Le Floch (both CA Mantes la Ville). They rode away on the first lap and quickly established a sizeable advantage.

Longo kept attacking in her usual style, and rode away with Sophie Creux shortly before halfway. She dropped the Dauphiné-Savoie rider approximately 13 km later, and Creux was eventually absorbed by the five chasers. Longo put a minute into them in 7 km, and that sealed the race victory for her. She eventually rode in to the finish with an ample 3 minute lead after nearly 100 kilometres of racing. Longo therefore repeated her dual effort of last year, by winning both the time trial and the road race.

"I have progressed in the way I can handle the effort, but from now on, the result is not too significant any more; there is no more Olympic selection to be gained. I am very relaxed," said Longo afterwards.

"I have the impression that I am an actress in a theatre, and I'm performing a new free act. I don't have any more specific objectives. I will certainly go to the World Championships in Lison, but it is not my goal."

"I am pushed by all the spectators who encourage me. I like to inspire people."

Fifth placed Juliette Vandekerkove (who was also the first espoir home), commented that "When you are on the road, you only hear 'Jeannie'. It is hard. In six years, there will be the Olympic Games. That will be our time. We get there slowly but surely."
