Stage 3 is a mountain stage with 3 mountain and 2 downhill sections and a mountain top finish.  Stage 10 is a 12k mountain TT.  I'm expecting Garlick to do well in both.

Seb Hamilton             CapitanSalami           63.11      Free Role

Another very good outing this week for the American Team with 2 earning points (Hamilton, Ealy).  Only two other teams had multiple riders earn points (Espagna with 2 and Eesti with 3).  The team earned 230 total points and currently sits in 5th place after Stage 2.  Stage 3 could be another strong outing for the American Team with a trip into the mountains.

S1 - The team missed out of the first group on the road which consisted of 22 riders.  A group of 5 Americans were in the 58 man peloton at just 10s behind.  The remainder of the team was 20s behind, which included Jim Ealy (Leader).

S2 -  The lead group lost most of it's strength and now only consisted of 8 riders.  A group of 3 Americans (Ray, Hamilton and Olssen) were in group 2, 10s behind.  A group of 4 Americans was still 20s back.

S3 - The end of section 3 had one lone leader, Harry Bird (AUS).  He was 10s ahead of a group of 18 riders, which included Ray and Hamilton.  Norris and Ealy were now 22s behind the lone leader.  Both riders are hoping to bridge the gap.

S4 - There was a shake up after this section.  Seb Hamilton made a move and was now leading the race with Amalio Esteve (ESP), just 4s ahead of Rubenis (LAT) and 10s ahead of Rask-Moller (DEN) and Bird (AUS).  Jim Ealy also made a big move leaping into the top 9, 14s behind.  Ray and Norris were still holding on at 22s back, with hopes of making the top 20 and earning points for the team.

S5 - Almost!!!....Hamilton was unable to keep pace and fell back to 4th place, just off the podium.  Ealy also couldn't quite keep pace and fell to 18th.  While Norris placed 29th, he was only 5s out of the points.

Ealy (Leader) and Hamilton (FR) performed very well today earning points for the Team.  Norris came through as a Super Domestique, bringing Ealy to a Top 20.  A great job for the American Team in Stage 2!

Stage 3, Season 28



Another Mountain stage for Stage 3.  The American Team performed well in the Stage 1 Mountain race and hope to carry the success of the past two stages into this one.  We're looking to get 3 cyclists (Garlick, Bone and Tierney) in the Top 20 with our strong domestiques.  Can we possibly have 3 riders in the top 20?? 

The team for Stage 2 is as follows:

Name                       Team Name            GV          Role
         
Charles Garlick            Kalarratas              65.44      Free Role
Bob Bone                    Rublo                    64.29      Leader
Jason Tierney              Monster                 62.99      Domestique
Barry Holland              Lanihuli_cycling      62.56      Domestique
Randy Davis               BigNigProCycling     62.48      Domestique

You should consider putting Tierney in free role rather than worker.  His chances of scoring might be better.

95   Fraser Hilton                20      2: 12"        0      Rublo

S1 - The team made a strong showing on the first Uncategorized climb of the day and kept 7 riders in the Peloton, just 8s behind a leading group of 10 riders.  Only Randy Davis and Barry Holland missed out.  They were 22s behind the leading group..

S2 -  On the first downhill section, 5 riders pulled away and were now leading a group of 25 riders by 15s and the 2nd Peloton of 49 riders by 25s.  The 2nd Peloton included 7 American riders, with Davis and Holland now 39s behind the leaders.

S3 - We finally saw a shakeup in the race in section 3.  There was now only one leader, Julian Melhus (NOR).  He was 19s ahead of a group of 10 riders, which included Bob Bone.  Charles Garlick was in the 3rd group, 37s behind and Jason Tierney, Nathan Hudson and Harry Harris were now 44s back in group 4.

S4 - No major changes in this section of the course, the second and last downhill on course.  Bone was in group 2, now 26s behind and Garlick was 34s behind in group 3.  A group of 5 Americans (Fraser Hilton, Tierney, Hudson, Gilber Kellman and Harris) were 46s behind.  It's not looking good for the Americans to have 3 point finishers, but we'll see what happens.

S5 - A FRENCHMAN WINS THE STAGE (Pierre Maunoir)!!!!  On the infamous Alpe d"Huez, Bob Bone was able to hold on to a 14th place finish, 1:01s behind winner.  Charles Garlick made a strong move, overtook Bone on the final climb and earned himself a Top 10 finish.   Tierney also made a very strong move and placed 15th on the stage as a Super Domestique for Bone.

The was the third good outing in a row for the American Team with 3 earning points (Garlick, Bone and Tierney).  The Americans were the only team with 3 riders in the Top 20.  The team earned 270 total points and remains in 5th place after Stage 3, only 85 points behind the first place Team Espagna.  In speaking with Team Manager, he stated, "While the Team is getting multiple riders in the Top 20 each Stage, the points are just not coming.  If we only had one more Top 5 Finish in the first three stages, we could be leading the competition."  Garlick (FR) and Bone (Leader) performed very again in this stage.  Tierney came through as a Super Domestique, bringing himself and Bone to Top 15 finishes.  A surprise came from Barry Holland.  He was a distant 1:01s behind (90th) after S4 but catapulted into a 60th place finish.  Additionally, Holland (60th) and Harry Harris (72nd) were the highest placed 19 yo's in the race.  I feel some great things coming from these two in the coming years.  A great job for the American Team in Stage 3!

Stage 4 of the season is not looking like a good one for the Americans.  It is a 162km sprint stage, slightly uphill, but still flat non the less.  While points may be nonexistent for this stage, we do hope to place a couple riders in the Top 40.

Stage 4, Season 28





Stage 4 is a flat sprint of 162 km.  With 3 great results, the US Team is looking to make it 4.  It's going to be a tough one though, with potential of only 1 rider making the Top 20 (Victor Gear).  Let's hope that our Domestiques can lead him out to a great finish. 

The team for Stage 4 is as follows:

Name                       Team Name            GV          Role
         
Victor Gear                Oldmen                    60.94      Leader (2x WB)
Kendall Taylor            SentinelChickens     56.55      Domestique
Garraint Segond         Lydrick                    55.16      Domestique (WB)
Marc Embley              CGC                         55.14      Domestique (2x WB)
Dean Owen                KingMiller                 54.61      Domestique
Steve Taylor               trekgvsu                  53.76      Domestique

S2 -  The team lost 3 riders out of the main group and now only consists of Gear, Dalton and Lloyd.  Embley, Green and Segond are now 18s behind.  K. Taylor, S. Taylor and Owen are now 42s behind.

S3 - Not much change as the group group now consists of 40 riders, with the 3 Americans (Gear, Dalton and Lloyd).  Embley, Green and Segond are now 20s behind.

S4 - Victor Gear makes his move!!  He is with 3 other riders, leading the Peloton by 12s.  Marc Embley also made a jump, bridging to the Peloton and is in the group 12s behind, riding with Patrick Dalton.

S5 - Christiano Ferrari of Italia wins the stage in a photo finish with Victor Gear!!  Ferrari edged out Gear with the bike lunge on the line!!  Marcc Embley finishes 14th in a group of 17 riders that could not keep up with the 4 leaders.

What an outing for the Americans!!  When they were not expected to score any points, they came away with 330 (Gear with 250 and Embley with 80) and now sit in 3rd place overall, just 90 pts behind Team Italia.   A great job for the American Team in Stage 4!

Stage 5 of the season is a flat Time Trial of 67.5 km.  Maybe the American Team can pull out another surprise in this stage.

Instead of two it was five!   Wow!!

Congratulations for the outstanding results on the stage and, moreso, for the #1 ranking for the U21s.

Keep up the good work.

S1 - After the first time check, 2 Americans (Colin Sweet, Derek Morse) were in the Top 10.  The remainder of the team was no more than 13s behind the leader.

S2 -  After the 2nd time check, the Americans now have 2 riders (Sweet and Morse) in the Top 5, with Brian Fevola and Jack MacDonald breaking into the Top 20.  The lowest ranking American is in 45th, just 25s behind the leader.  It's looking good for the US Team in Stage 5!

S3 - Not much change in S3.  The US Team still has 4 riders in the Top 20, two in the Top 5.  The lowest American is 44th at 36s behind the leader.

S4 - At the 4th time check, Fevola and MacDonald made up some ground and are trying to sneak into the Top 10!  Arthur Ealy, Pat Short and George Morris are their best to earn points.  They are all less than 10s out of the 20th position.

S5 - Mario Gomez of Espagna wins the stage, leading from start to finish!!  Colin Sweet finished 2nd, 9s behind.  Derek Morse finished 5th, 21s behind the leader.  Brian Fevola snuck into the Top 10 edging out Edwin Piper of Germany.  Two other Americans surprised everyone and finished in the Top 20!  Jack MacDonald finished 12th and Arthur Ealy took the 20th spot.

And everyone thought that they saw all the Americans could do in the first 4 stages!!  Stage 5 was a shock!!  While only 2 Americans had a shot of placing in the Top 20, 5 Americans were able to accomplish that, earning 600 points on the stage, catapulting the team from 3rd place to 1st place with a lead of 325 points over Team Espagna. 

When the US Team Manager was questioned after the race about the teams performance, this is what he had to say.  "We were just as shocked as everyone.  The boys came through with outstanding performances, not just the guys who earned points, but even those that did not.  Our worst rider placed 53rd on the stage, only 1:15s behind the leader and 28s out of the points.  So far this year, the guys have worked great as a Team.  We hope that this success can keep going." 

Stage 6 of the season takes us to Belgium for Nokere-Kearse, a hilly cobble race of 200km.  Can the Americans continue their torrid pace?  Without being able to train on cobbles in the states, the US Team will have to rely on the European trained members.

I thought lots of roads in the States are pretty bad as well...  8)
