Genevieve Jeanson (RONA) sprinted to victory today in the 6th round of the women's World Cup in Montreal after a tumultuous week which has left doubt whether she will be suspended for failing to appear for testing after a previous World Cup race earlier in the year.

In fact, the Montreal native was boosted by not only a boisterous hometown crowd, but some anger over the possible suspension. Perhaps that anger was just the fuel she needed to out sprint Judith Arndt (Nurnberger) and Olivia Gollan (Australian National Team) after 12 laps of the grueling 8.3km Mt Royale Circuit.

Arndt was disappointed with second place after having finished in the same position last week at the Tour de L'Aude in France. After the race, Arndt told Cyclingnews "I was second, not good enough today." In contrast Gollan was pleased with her result as she was there mainly to protect the World Cup lead of team mate Oenone Wood. "I just followed Genevieve on the final lap as I knew she'd be the one to beat but I had nothing left in the last 200 meters." Gollan told Cyclingnews.

It was a race of attrition as riders starting falling off the pace on the second trip up the Mt Royale climb, a 1.7 km grind of varying grades. The pack continued to be whittled away until only about half of the field remained as the climb took it's toll and the attacks began.

On the offensive early was French legend Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli who lead the first time up the climb and was active throughout the race, though was never able to get away.

The Quark team was also aggressive with Amy Moore getting up the road on lap 5 with Christina Peick-Anderson (S.A.T.S.). That move was short lived but they tried again 3 laps later with Audrey Lemieux going solo for just over a lap.

Jeanson's RONA team was very attentive at the front all day and their plan to keep everyone in check played out perfectly as Genevieve arrived to the base of the climb on the final lap rested and ready to attack. She had payed attention to the chilly wind that had blown steadily throughout the race and timed her attack at just over 500 meters to go when the wind was at her back. Only Gollan and Arndt were able to grab her wheel but neither could repeat the feat when Jeanson went again at 200 meters to gap them by several bike lengths at the line. "It was rage. Rage was driving me." - Jeanson said.
