Compton, again, for weekend sweep at Trek CXC Cup

U.S. national cyclocross champion Katie Compton (Trek Factory Racing) made it a weekend sweep at the Trek CXC Cup Sunday in Waterloo, Wisconsin.

As she so often does when racing on home soil, the UCI World Cup series champion powered away from the rest of the field to finish alone.

Behind Compton were the same two riders on the podium as on Saturday, yet in reverse positions, with Caroline Mani (Raleigh-Clement) taking second, and Georgia Gould (Luna) in third.

Even after a night of rainfall, the course was exceptionally dry and dusty, slippery even on the easiest of corners. Wind also played a major factor, with gusts up to 40mph.

Compton attacked Mani halfway through the 45-minute race, on a steep climb that Mani was unable to ride. From there, Compton held her gap to the line, winning by 23 seconds.

“It was a little bit tighter today, it was super fast, and I think there are a few less twists and turns [than Saturday],” Compton told VeloNews. “And it was so windy. I definitely had a better start today, and I tried to wait, but then I saw a spot to attack, and Caroline was right there.”

Mani said she was satisfied to have finished as close as she did to the World Cup champion.

“[Compton] was riding the climb. I don’t have the gear for that. I made the choice to run a single-ring today, a 40-28, and I’m not capable of riding that,” Mani told VeloNews. “I made that choice, maybe it was a mistake, but she is stronger than me, so even if I would have been able to ride the climb with her, I think she would have eventually attacked me somewhere else. She’s stronger, but it was good to be able to follow her for a couple of laps. I’m satisfied with that.”

Compton said the course’s slick conditions were much different than on Saturday, which made for a change in cornering tactics.

“The apexes of the turns were slick today,” Compton said. “I tired to cross the apexes, rather than use them. It was a bit tricky, and the lines were changing, even during the race. You had to think about each turn differently, on each lap.”

Gould said the key difference for her between Saturday and Sunday was her start, which she described as “crappy.”

“By the time I got through some traffic, I was just by myself,” Gould told VeloNews. “It was actually kind of boring. I was all prepared to be tactical, and maneuvering, and mostly it was just a time trial. I felt good, but the time gaps weren’t changing.”

Tejay van Garderen calls team’s victory ‘the highlight of my career’

VeloNews - Sun, 09/21/2014 - 13:47

PONFERRADA, Spain (VN) — Cycling is all about individual success, but it certainly takes a team to win, so perhaps it was no surprise when Tejay van Garderen described Sunday’s team time trial victory with BMC Racing as the “highlight of my career.”

BMC Racing upset pre-race favorites Omega Pharma-Quick Step, knocking back the Belgian squad and Australian challenger Orica-GreenEdge by more than 30 seconds to win the prestigious race Sunday as the UCI World Road Championships opened in Spain.

“This is the highlight of my career. To be able to share this with the team, it’s just incredible,” van Garderen told VeloNews. “To be up here with my boys, it’s awesome.”

Van Garderen’s celebration was clouded by a late-race thunderstorm, however, which added a touch of polemic to the finale as light rain and gusting winds kicked up for the final teams still on course.

BMC Racing was fastest at two of three time splits on the 57.12km course looping around the Bierzo wine country, stopping the clock in 1:03:29 (53.954kph).

The American squad started more than 30 minutes before defending champions Omega Pharma and rode to the finish on dry roads. An afternoon thunderstorm quickly developed, with light showers dampening the roads and gusting winds creating tougher conditions for the later starters.

BMC and Omega Pharma were all but tied at the first time check at 23.5km, and Omega Pharma was nearly 10 seconds faster at the second time check at 36km. At 48.9km, BMC was once again 12 seconds faster, and won handily by 35 seconds over Omega Pharma, and 31 seconds over second-place Orica.

Omega Pharma’s Tom Boonen said the rain and the wind were both contributing factors to their loss.

“We knew we were behind. Coming into the final climb, we saw the thunderstorm coming, and the wind was really picking up,” Boonen said.

“I think it changed a lot for these three teams starting later [Orica, Omega Pharma and fourth-place Sky]. We went 8kph slower on the last part than we did in training. It was just pushing, pushing, pushing.”

Boonen said the team lost “a lot of time” on a final climb and descent as the team separated, and had to wait for everyone to regroup before the final corners to make it safely to the line.

Van Garderen, however, defended BMC’s victory, saying that his team was already fastest when the sprinkles started to fall.

“It’s a kind of a blessing and a curse. We got a little bit better weather, but the teams knew how to play off of us, because they had the split times,” van Garderen said of BMC’s earlier starting time.

“The weather didn’t come until the end … maybe it would have been closer, but I am confident that we were the strongest team today. We made no mistakes. We were hauling ass out there.”

Van Garderen said BMC’s game plan was to try to remain steady throughout the course and keep everyone together as long as possible.

“We started with 20-second pulls, and once we got to the first check, we assessed who was a bit stronger and weaker, so the weaker guys sat on a bit longer, and the stronger guys pulled longer,” he said.

“We tried to keep the speed the same, and then drill it on the flats. We didn’t want to over-complicate things. It was just, get out there, and ride … hard.”

Rounding out the team were Italians Manuel Quinziato and Daniel Oss, Swiss rider Silvan Dillier, Australian Rohan Dennis, and Slovak Peter Velits, who has now been part of three straight team time trial victories, adding Sunday’s win to victories in 2012 and 2013 with Omega Pharma.

Velits, too, defended BMC’s victory despite the late-race change of weather.

“I think we would still win, maybe not with such a big advantage, but we would still win,” Velits said. “The last few teams had rain, with worse roads, but we were strong all the race. It was the work of the whole team.”

Sunday’s intense battle revealed just how seriously the major teams are taking the team time trial. Several big favorites for next week’s road race were roped into racing by their respective teams, such as Fabian Cancellara with Trek Factory Racing, and Peter Sagan, with Cannondale.

Team Sky brought in 2012 Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins (who said, when asked how the race went, “There’s not much to say, is there?”), while Marcel Kittel, the German sprinter, started with Giant-Shimano.

“For any team that takes it seriously, there are five or six teams that go all out for the team time trial, amongst those teams, it’s a very special race,” said Orica’s Svein Tuft.

“It’s a special test, a real show of character of the team. It’s a very special event. I think it’s a great event that they’ve added to the world championships.”

For van Garderen, winning gold in Sunday’s team time trial is what he said was his most realistic chance to ever become a world champion. He admitted it will be tough to beat Tony Martin in Wednesday’s individual time trial, or knock back the likes of Sagan or Cancellara in next week’s road race.

“This is a team sport, but sometimes people don’t understand that. The team time trial really shows you that. You can understand what the team aspect is all about,” van Garderen said.

“There are times, like at Colorado [USA Pro Challenge], I was there on the podium, but I wanted to have my whole team up there.”

On Sunday, the entire BMC Racing Team celebrated the victory.
