The Bermuda Grand Prix Stage 3 - UPDATED!
 

September 23, 2004
Bermuda Grand Prix Stage 1 - Karen Brems (Webcor) gets Stage 1

Report courtesy Mike Tamayo, Victory Brewing
Bermuda Grand prix is the final stop of the Women's Prestige Cycling Series. With all of the major teams sending squads of riders to participate in the once known to be "PARTY RACE". Much like the weather, the racing on this small Island is expected to be heated.

Stage 1 was the Hamilton Criterium, which brings to the riders a night criterium, on a fast technical course with a mean power climb. The race distance was 30 minutes, with over $2000 in Primes. This promised to be a very fast event.

Sure enough from the gun the field of women split into 2 major packs with the pack being driven by Genesis. Prime after prime Genesis proved to be the strongest lead out by controlling the laps, and delivering Laura Vangilder to the line.

After collecting multiple sprints, the race favorite was Laura Van Gilder for the final sprint. Showing past years of experience, Karen Brems (Webcor) took the last corner first and held of the charging bunch for the finish. Gina Grain (Victory Brewing) took a respectable 4th place.

Bermuda Grand Prix Stage 2 - Gina Grain (Victory Brewing) wins stage 2

Report courtesy Mike Tamayo, Victory Brewing
With 1 stage down the racers, headed to the small island of St-George for Stage 2, XL Capital Super Sprint TT. A short and very technical Time Trial of 700 meters. The race course was mostly cobble stone, with 4 very technical fast turns, and 1 small power climb.

As the riders charged through the historic roads, the early times where showing to be around 1 minute 8 seconds. With 1/3 of the field completing the course, Laura Vangilder (Genesis) set the early lead time with a 1 minute 6 seconds raising the bar to her challengers.

Showing her sprinting and cornering strengths, Gina Grain (Victory Brewing) further pushed the limits by setting a time of 1 minute and 4 seconds. A time that would stand for the reminder of the evening giving Gina Grain the win.

Bermuda Grand Prix Stage 3 - Lauren Franges (Victory Brewing) takes the win and Lead!

Report courtesy Mike Tamayo, Victory Brewing
Stage 3 of the Bermuda Grand Prix was a circuit race along the coast of Clear Water Beach. The 9km loop was a mostly flat course with strong winds as the major factors.

The race started at a brisk pace with Victory Brewing going on the attack. An early breakaway of Gina Grain gained 25 seconds on the road before being reabsorbed.

Once again Team Genesis showed their sprinting strength with Laura Vangilder becoming the leader on the road by winning 2 of the time bonus sprints. As the race progressed an breakaway went with 9km's remaining of the 89km race; that included Andrea Hannos (Rona), Kori Seehafer (Genesis), Kate Sherwin (Kenda Tires) and Lauren Franges (Victory Brewing).

Coming into the finish line with just over a 1 minute lead on the main peleton Lauren Franges (Victory Brewing) took the sprint for the win over Kori Seehafer (Genesis) followed by Andrea Hannos (Rona).

After close calculation of precious time bonuses Lauren Franges was awarded the Leaders Jersey sitting in 1st place by just 5 seconds over Andrea Hannos of Rona and 10 seconds over Kori Seehafer of Genesis.
