Redlands Bicycle Classic Stage 4: Salton Criterium

Finishing in front of a large crowd of spectators downtown on Saturday afternoon, Alex Candelario and Tina Pic came up with high-speed victories in the fourth stage of the Redlands Bicycle Classic. Neither victory – Candelario, racing for Jelly Belly/Aramark, nor Pic, of Genesis-Scuba – had an effect on the overall leader of the 20th annual stage race that has but one day remaining.

Webcor Builder’s Chris Horner retained his near two-minute lead over Jittery Joe Coffee’s Cesar Grajales. Horner has a 1:49 lead going into Sunday. Lyne Bessette, racing for Quark, stayed 53 seconds ahead of Rona’s Genevieve Jeanson as the Sunset Road Race beckons in the final day of racing on Sunday. Pic finished ahead of Genesis-Scuba teammate Laura Van Gilder, the green sprint jersey leader, to win the women’s 60-minute stage.

Victory Brewing’s Gina Grain outpedaled T-Mobile’s Lara Kroepsch for third place. Mari Holden, the 1998 Redlands champion, was fourth. Bessette, showing the same form she used in winning the Oak Glen road race on Friday, took fifth.

Horner, meanwhile, showed downtown Redlands onlookers his skill and strength in pushing himself to the front of the pack on two of the final three laps. He wound up sixth in the 90 minute stage, which was won by Candelario in an hour, 31 minutes and 24 seconds. Juan Jose Haedo of Colavita Olive Oil finished in a close second place, just ahead of veteran Gord Fraser (Health Net Maxxis). Fraser was penalized and over protest, lost his third place standing on the stage, giving Dominguez the third podium spot for the day. Fined for irregular sprinting, Fraser was also relegated to last place in his field (105th on the stage).  Watch for Chuck Coyle's Redlands criterium article for more on this.

Horner may have picked up a few seconds on Grajales, the overall runner-up who hails from Colombia. Horner continued to control the red climber’s jersey over Michael Sayers, 22-18 (no mountain points were awarded in the stage). Colavita’s Aaron Olson increased his green jersey sprint points lead to 48-33 over Haeda.

Horner, the 2000 champion, is gunning for his fourth overall Redlands Classic yellow jersey and third straight. Bessette is trying to win for the second time at Redlands, having won in 1999. Jeanson is defending champion. The six-stage Redlands Classic for both men and women concludes today with the Redlands Sunset Road Race.

The women race 100 kms and on an 8.5-kilometer course somewhat similar to the Mount Royal World Cup course. The men race 142 kilometers. (Thanks to Redlands Bicycle Classic and RONA)
