Cycling news By Mark Zalewski, North American Editor with Kirsten Robbins in Springfield, Missouri Huge time gap causes nightmare flashbacks of Georgia for organisers After a long 200-plus kilometres in the saddle, and a breakaway that put double-digits on the peloton, George Hincapie (Discovery Channel) out-sprinted his eleven other break companions to take the stage win and overall lead in the Tour of Missouri, with Frank Pipp (Health Net-Maxxis) close behind in second and Dominque Rollin (Kodak Gallery-Sierra Nevada) in third. "There were really strong guys in the break today," said Hincapie. "Everyone was pulling great the whole way. I didn’t know too many of the riders in the break today except for Cañada and obviously I know Frischkorn and Friedman. I knew Dominique must be fast because we both went for the intermediate sprint points and I didn’t go around him that easy. But I knew it was going to be up to me to keep it together in the end." The second stage of the race was similar to another stage of another major American race -- the now infamous third stage of the 2007 Tour de Georgia when the breakaway put twenty-nine minutes on the field. At one point today the well-stocked breakaway had more than 16 minutes while the field lazily rolled along. At this point organisers worried over the safety of the race with such a enormous gap between the envelopes holding up traffic and police resources stretched far too thin. Finally the peloton rolled along at an actual tempo and kept the split to just under fifteen minutes. One of the reasons for such an unmotivated peloton was that only five out of the fifteen teams did not have a rider in the break. But one of those teams was race leader Ivan Dominguez's Toyota-United team. "NO one was really looking at us," said Dominguez. "When the group went away we tried but we weren’t getting anywhere so we decided not to keep pulling because there were a few other teams that missed the break. But the other teams didn’t want to do anything. They started working when the break was already at 15 minutes and that is stupid." Still, race organisers were looking to the race leader's team to at least put in a symbolic effort and keep the break at a reasonable gap, if not a catch-able one. At one point, with the break clearly out of reach, the race organisers spoke with some team managers in the caravan about upping the pace from a crawl to at least a walk. But most of the response was of the shoulder-shrug variety. "I would hope that the teams would have spoken to one another," said race director Jim Birrell, regarding the need for organisers to suggest teams start chasing. "I don't know what happened with the four teams that weren't in the break. Two tours back-to-back where teams didn't step up to defend their yellow jersey and Toyota didn't even make and attempt to support the groups that started after to reel in the group. I'm left without words to describe what went on in the chase group today." "We did a lot of work yesterday with one rider [time] cut because they qualified yesterday’s stage as a flat stage, while it was hillier than today!" said Toyota-United director Harm Jansen in response. "Sullivan is sick with asthma problems, Stevic has a bad knee and pulled out of the race, Baldwin crashed twice, Dominguez is our leader and two of our riders left, England and Blackgrove are just spent from yesterday. So the only guy I had left was Wherry and I’m not going to finish off that last piece of bread I have left on my plate." "We made the race yesterday and today we were the first team to start to chase when the break went up the road and I think that the other teams had an incentive to chase too. I even put the two guys I had left on the front for the last hour but I wasn’t going to spend Chris Wherry, I have to keep someone. I think some teams gave away their GC with this break." Health Net-Maxxis director Jeff Corbett said that his team expected just this scenario and thought that this was a little different than the Georgia debacle. "Georgia was a different scenario, the leader's team there only had six total guys. And there were several big team that missed it there that should have chased. We knew this was going to happen -- we talked about it weeks ago between the distances they were putting up and the crosswinds. That is why we had guys like Nathan and Ryder, GC guys, covering the moves." Hincapie said that his team was not working for a huge time gap, but was patrolling the front to make sure the break stuck. "The break was holding at thirty seconds for the first twenty kilometers but we were going as hard as we could and they were going as hard as they could -- sooner or later someone is going to crack and typically it’s the ones who are chasing. So after that the gap should go up, so I’m not really surprised that we gained that much time." Mike Friedman was the man caught in the final metres, hoping for a major stage race win. But his sprint started just that much too early to catch riders like Hincapie off guard, leaving him quite upset after the stage. "I feel pretty bad because I had a team-mate that was slaughtering himself all day getting bottles, covering, getting food and protecting me for the sprint. I should have attacked at the end maybe, like a counter move, but I thought that they would have just chased me down." "I’m going to give it a try in the time trial," said Friedman, who has had good results in recent time trials, finishing fourth overall at the 2006 national championships. "It gets really hilly from here on in. I feel really bad because I got in the move and I made a promise of getting on the podium. It just pisses me off." Former Canadian champion Dominque Rollin will be a rider for Hincapie to watch, as he sits only four seconds behind in second place and contested both intermediate sprints today. "We knew that everyone was almost at the same level and so we were all cooperating in the break and that gave us a very good gap on the field," he said. "In the end everyone was looking at George and he won the sprint. But it worked out well for me to be third today." Hincapie now holds the leader and points jerseys, and is the odds-on favourite to hold the lead all the way to St. Louis, given that tomorrow's time trial should suit a power rider like him. But the experienced veteran is not counting any chickens (or armadillos) before they hatch. "There is no guarantee that I have won this race, based on the time trial tomorrow," he said. "Cycling is such a hard sport and there are no gifts." How it unfolded The peloton rolled out of the small town of Clinton today under sunny and warm skies -- but that was about the only thing that was bright and sunny for the start. Multiple flats and mechanicals held the race under neutral speeds until after the 0km mark to allow the peloton to start together. Unfortunately, soon after actually starting the peloton encountered what seemed to be an armadillo in the middle of the road. It was not known if said dasypus novemcinctus was alive or dead when the slow-moving peloton reached it, but the species is known to jump straight up in the air when startled. Regardless, Missouri native Dan Schmatz (BMC) took the brunt of the encounter and ended up hard on the road just 7km into the stage. The local hero was not able to continue and was transported to the finish hospital where he was diagnosed with a broken collarbone and several lacerations. However he was not admitted and is expected to make a full recovery. For the next forty kilometres the peloton rode at a fast clip, diving across the road to cover any potential moves. For a while it seemed like this would be the order of the day, but with 150km left to race that would be a difficult proposition. Finally, a move of twelve riders got off the front and the field finally let go. It turned out that the reason behind this was that most of the major teams all had one rider in the move with Slipstream-Chipotle the only team with two. The two Slipstream riders were last weekend's Univest GP winner Will Frischkorn and Mike Friedman, along with Hincapie, David Cañada (Saunier-Duval Prodir), Stefan Parinussa (Team Sparkasse), Frank Pipp (Health Net-Maxxis), Valeriy Kobzarenko (Navigators Insurance), Andrew Randell (Symmetrics), Jonathan Garcia (BMC), Jesse Anthony (Kodakgallery-Sierra Nevada), Andrew Guptill (Colavita-Sutter Home) and Matthew Rice (Jelly Belly). This break held only about a thirty-second lead for about 10-15km while Toyota-United rode tempo on the front, but soon after the elastic snapped and just thirty kilometres after the break was formed they had more than seven minutes on the field. Ten kilometres later it was more than eleven minutes and the first sprint of the day was just around the corner. This sprint revealed who was interested in contending for the points and overall jerseys, with Dominque Rollin charging up the incline with Hincapie right on his wheel. The two were within a wheel of each other on the line with the Discovery rider taking the points and bonus seconds. With 85km to go the gap was approaching the 17 minute mark and the alarm bells were ringing with the organisers. Finally, one team stepped up to at least ride tempo as DFL-Cyclingnews-Litespeed put six riders on the front. Later on, the Tecos team tried to help, and even had two riders attack the field in a suicide bridge attempt. Hector Hugo Rangel and Fausto Marcelino Esparza tried to go but Discovery Channel rode the front and made quick work of them. The rest of the race into Springfield was in the front as the 12 leaders continued to run their double pace-line with short, efficient pulls on the front. Even onto the finishing circuits the group remained together, though with a little less organization. Across the finish line with two laps to go it was still all together. Finally, Will Frischkorn put in an attack -- something the entire break was expecting and waiting for as Slipstream held the only numerical advantage. Hincapie immediately covered the move as Rollin stuck to the former national champ's wheel. Then it was Friedman taking a dig, which was covered by Kobzarenko. The attacking continued with Cañada and Hincapie finally taking the lead and calming things down into the final lap. Then it was Rollin's turn to attack, which was covered by Hincapie. The two held a good gap for a few seconds and looked like they could hold their lead -- but the two sat up and waited, relying on tactics more than sheer strength. "We could tell that George had good legs because he was bringing back all of the attacks," said Rollin. "At one point we got away together but with two Slipstream riders chasing we were going no where. After that it was a matter of starting the sprint at a good time. I was just a little bit too far back and we came to the line faster than I expected." "I was always trying to make sure I wasn’t the first to jump on any attack," said Pipp. "I played off of Friedman and Dominique in the end. There were so many attacks within the last two laps because we had so much time on the peleton that we didn’t need to work for time." The slight downhill of the finish only increased the speed as Mike Friedman jumped on the inside. Friedman held his lead in the final 200 metres but was eventually caught at 50 metres by Hincapie who held his fist up across the line.
