Horner goes for three in a row

By Kristy Scrymgeour

The fourth year of the Solano Bicycle Classic begins today in Solano County, California.

Traditionally hosting a very strong field, this year's classic is bound to have the best teams competing if attendance at last weekend's McLane Pacific Bicycle Classic is any indication.

Each year the stages change a little bit creating a sense of the unknown, and this year is no different. New to the stage race is Friday's 7.7 mile mass start Hill Climb up Mix Canyon which will certainly affect the team strategies going into the tour.

Defending champion, Chris Horner (Saturn), however is no stranger to the mountains, and going by his form last weekend will certainly be a favorite to take his third consecutive win. Given the depth of the men's field this year, he is likely to be challenged by a number of teams including Health Net, Prime Alliance, 7-UP Maxxis and Webcor, all of whom turned in strong performances last weekend.

In the Women's field, Judith Arndt will not be back to defend her title, and given the dramatic change in the Women's peleton in terms of new teams and rosters this year there may not be an overwhelming favorite. Teams like Rona, Saturn, and T-Mobile will certainly be out to show their strength but they will have to watch their backs with new teams on the block surely wanting to surprise.
