Home-cooking for Cody

By Robert Kane

JT Cody, racing on familiar roads, gave the newly-formed San Antonio-based Team Solar Eclipse their first victory at the inaugural edition of the Green Valley Grand Prix. The Pro-1-2-3 race was contested over seven laps of an 8.5 mile circuit northeast of San Antonio. The racers were greeted with wet roads, 15-20 mph winds and temperatures not too much above freezing.

The race was marred by a huge first-lap wreck on a fast, winding tailwind section. Suffering worst from the pile-up was Specialized rider Geoff Godsey who broke his wrist. A number of other riders saw their frames - including two of the three Trek/VW riders in attendance - destroyed in the carnage.

After a lap of the race, between the wreck and the feverish pace through the crosswind and headwind sections, the main field had been halved. Fortunately, the second lap was less eventful. However, at the end of the second lap, three riders - James Corletta (Quattro Assi), Justin Green (Pfizer), and Randy Eller (Team FDM) - escaped on the finishing climb. Over the next lap, the three escapees managed to extend their lead to 90 seconds. Later in the lap a two-person chase group of Cody and Brent Turner (Texas Flyers) rolled off the front of the decimated 20-rider peloton. A promising bridge attempt by Tom Bain (Matrix), Chris Lutz (Team Diabetic), Will Ross (Quattro Assi), and Dan Opdyke was neutralized by the officials for a yellow-line violation. As the four returned to the main group, Cody and Turner were able to sneak out of sight.

Up front, Green was at the end of his rope and had to bid adieu to his breakaway companions. Meanwhile, Turner and Cody were in full pursuit mode, some 45 seconds behind the now two leaders. Another minute back was the ever-dwindling main field with perhaps 15 riders.

On lap 5, the two groups merged up front leaving four at the head of affairs - Cody, Turner, Corletta, and Eller. Corletta began to sit on, leaving the work to the other three. Behind, the field continued to shrink and Lutz decided to venture out on his own.

The penultimate lap saw no real changes up front. Lutz was still in between the two groups. The field now consisted of about 10 riders, who were too busy attacking one another to mount a concerted chase.

On the last lap, Corletta started to suffer cramps and was ultimately dropped before the finish, leaving three up front who continued to share the work until the last kilometer when the games began. Cody got stuck leading out into the headwind but he still had enough gas to hold off Turner and Eller. Corletta, who had recovered slightly over the last mile or so and nearly caught the leaders in the last kilometer, rolled in a few seconds adrift. In fifth, Lutz was able to hold off the pursuit from the remnants of the field.
