Dave McCook (McGuire Pro Cycling) and Tina Pic (Genesis Scuba) took out today's Race of Superweek showing their sprinting finesse to the people of Manitowoc. Pic now wears the leaders jersey for the women's series and in the men's event the yellow leaders jersey was handed over to Carlos Vargas (Endeavour Cycling Team).

The course was a basic four-corner set up around Washington Park in Manitowoc, with wide open straights and corners. Both the men's and the women's race was riddled with sprint primes making both races fast and keeping the bunch together for the majority of the race.

In the women's race attacks were frequent with Suzanne Sonye (Helen's Cycles) and Keri Soraci (TDS) being quite aggressive early in the race but the Genesis Scuba team anxious to keep the race together for their sprinter, Pic. Brooke O'Conner (Colavita Olive Oil) was very successful in winning the majority of the primes saying that it would help "pay for [her] airfare home. I was going to go for the overall points," she said, "but I'm not going to be here for the full series, so I figured that I'd go for the sprint primes."

Eventually after 60 kilometers of racing the event came down to a bunch sprint which Pic took easily from Magen Long (The Bicycle Store) and Andrea Hannos (Rona). Pic said she really owed the win today to her team. "I didn't feel that good today," she said. "It was a fast race because of the primes and I felt like I sat in a lot. The team was good and they held it together for the sprint."

Again in the men's race multiple small breakaway attempts filled the race but all were reeled back in very quickly on the fast course. The big money primes made the race very exciting, one in particular seeing Robbie Ventura (USPS) leading out the $300 prime with Jonas Carney (Jelly Belly) caming around the final corner so far in front of the other contenders that he was able to sit up and roll to the line to take the money.

With 14 laps to go, a couple of small breaks joined forces and a break of 13 riders formed, which proved to be the decisive move of the day. With the bunch moving in on them a few times, it was the voice of Harm Jansen echoing across the park, who was convincing his fellow breakaway riders that this was the break that could stay if they all worked together.

It did stay and with two laps to go a bell rang to announce a final $300 prime for the penultimate lap. McCook made his move to take the sprint and kept it going after the sprint line to solo the final lap to victory. "I timed it really well," he said. "Nobody was thinking that I would hold on after the prime but I really committed myself to it and it worked out."

Jansen came in bike lengths ahead of the rest of the break to take second place and moved himself up to second place in the overall series in doing so. "When [McCook] took off I wasn't going to chase him because I knew he'd beat me in a sprint anyway. I had to wait for the other to chase him."

Jansen is very well known at the Superweek series and had some kind words to say about the event whilst on the podium. "I don't think there's any other racing series that matches this one. You guys have got it together and I think it is underestimated."

Taking third place in the race was Australian Richard England (Team MGZT) who was very pleased to be standing on the podium for the first time at Superweek. "I took some inspiration from one of my teammates who has been right up there every day. I started a bit too far back for the sprint to catch these two," he added referring to McCook and Jansen.

Tomorrow's stage is a road race held over a 10-mile circuit in Alpine Valley, a place famous for Wisconsin's ski fields. Each lap consists of short steep hills, making for quite a challenging stage.
