3rd Dodge Tour de Georgia: Stage Four - Updated
 

Stage 4: Dalton - Dahlonega, 133.4 miles/214.7km

Landis still in yellow while Armstrong finishes seventh

Pelted by heavy rain and wicked winds in the first of two mountain stages, Team CSC's Brian Vandborg (DEN) hung on for the stage victory today in Dahlonega, Ga., with at time of 5.33.02. Following close behind, Viatcheslav Ekimov (RUS) of Discovery Channel Pro Cycling and Italy's Marco Pinotti of Prodir-Saunier Duval finished second and third respectively with the same time. Floyd Landis (USA) on the Swiss squad Phonak remains in the yellow Dodge Race Leader jersey for the third consecutive day. Discovery Channel's Lance Armstrong finished seventh, eight seconds back.

Stage 4 of the 2005 Dodge Tour de Georgia featured four Georgia Power King of the Mountains climbs and took the riders across 133.4 miles of the North Georgia Mountains. Typical of a Georgia afternoon in the springtime, torrential rain, thunder, lightning and strong winds erupted, cutting visibility and creating slick, treacherous road conditions. Despite the rain, attacks were prevalent and the Maxxis Sprint Line in Chatsworth was hotly contested with the $1500 prize purse on the line. After reeling in several breaks, a group of 26 riders hammered toward the finish after descending Woody Gap with the Discovery Channel team applying the pressure. Huge crowds lining the streets of the mountain town of Dahlonega greeted the cyclists with just over mile to go. At the line, Vandborg claimed victory.

Commenting on the fierce competition today, Vandborg said, "We were focusing a lot on Discovery Team. We tried to cover the breaks. Whenever they went, we went. We were trying to be aggressive but still a little bit defensive."

Landis will again defend the Dodge Race Leader jersey as will Maxxis Sprint leader Greg Henderson (NZL) of Health Net p/b Maxxis.

Trent Lowe (AUS) successfully defended the GE Best Young Rider jersey, an objective of his Jittery Joe's-Kalahari team out of Athens, Ga. José Luis Rubiera was awarded for his efforts on the front with the Georgia Power King of the Mountains jersey and the Aaron's Most Aggressive Rider jersey.

"It's amazing. What a novelty. I didn't come here and expect this at all. I didn't really come here w/ too great of expectations other than to learn and gain something from the race. It's really cool to be up here today and yesterday and have the jersey," said Lowe on keeping the GE Best Young Rider jersey. Basically towards the end of the race just for me it was a matter of covering Saul Raisin and any attacks he makes. He did have a few digs."

Stage 5 is the penultimate climbing day of the 2005 Dodge Tour de Georgia. The 113 mile day will again push the riders to their limits as they push hard over Unicoi Gap, Hogpen Gap and Brasstown Bald, the highest peak in Georgia which features gradients of more that 20 percent in the final kilometer.

Dodge Tour de Georgia--The Dodge Tour de Georgia is America’s premier, professional cycling event and a rolling festival of community activities. The 2005 world-class event is scheduled for April 19-24. In 2004, nearly 750,000 spectators watched along the roadways as 15 international teams competed across 653 miles of the state of Georgia, having an estimated economic impact of $35-70 million. Won by Lance Armstrong, the 2004 race featured world-class cyclists and Tour de France veterans such as American Bobby Julich (a 2004 Olympic Games medalist), Italian Mario Cipollini and German Jens Voigt. The Tour is sanctioned by the UCI (2.1 America Tour-Continental Calendar), the international governing body of cycling, and USA Cycling (2.1) as a premier event for elite athletes around the world. The Tour’s official beneficiary is the Georgia Cancer Coalition (GCC), and the race proactively promotes a healthy lifestyle at its Healthy Georgia Expo. The Dodge Tour de Georgia, which started in 2003, is owned and operated by the Georgia Partnership for Economic Development. For more information, visit www.dodgetourdegeorgia.com.

The Navigators Report

Every single rider, and most of the race staff, drivers and others concerned with the race, will remember stage 4 of this year's Dodge Tour de Georgia. Oh, and it was an incredible sight for the spectators as well. The 215-Km (133-mi.) stage featured five categorized climbs with elevation changes from 750 feet to 2560 feet. The weather, however, played as big a part in today's racing action as the terrain. Fortunately for the racers, the crowds atop each of the climbs were undeterred by the conditions, and were not only very large, but also very vocal in their appreciation of seeing their favorites racing past.

Following yesterday's key time trial stage, the overall contenders would have today's demanding stage to help solidify the GC standings before tomorrow's assault of Brasstown Bald, and the 2nd of two days of climbing. Depending on your perspective, today would be an important stage to show just how much softening-up you can dish out, or how much softening-up you can take.

The Discovery Channel squad hit hard and quickly. Immediately after the first sprint of the day at km-22, the climbing began. An attack by Jose Rubiera (Discovery Channel) was matched by Andy Schlek (CSC), Marco Pinotti (Saunier Duval), Matt Russ and Sven Kraus (both Gerolsteiner) and Elia Aggiano (LPR). Their gap was maintained between 2-3 minutes for most of the day, in front of the Phonak led peloton of race leader Floyd Landis.

It wasn't long however, that the rains came. Through most of the race, the riders were subjected to fierce winds and a driving rain that made it difficult to see the rider in front. The fog, hard rain, and the bouts of stinging hail, coupled with the occasional crack of lightening, all made for a tough day of racing. Factoring in the demanding climbs and the fast, twisting descents, it was a race that won't soon be forgotten. At one point during a deluge, the radio-tour instructed all non-essential vehicles to move to the side of the road and out of the way, due to the lack of visibility and flooding.

The Rubiera breakaway continued on throughout the day until it was reduced to just 3 by the penultimate climb. The damage inflicted on the Phonak squad became evident on the Neel's Gap climb as Landis was now isolated in the front group. Following a flurry of attacks over the next 2 climbs, the main pack was reduced to 26, with the Discovery Channel and CSC teams having the most survivors. For the Navigators squad, the demanding stage took its toll, leaving Nathan O'Neill as the only representative in the front group.

The 14-km descent from Woody Gap to the City of Dahlonega saw the breakaway challengers caught, and the speedsters licking their chops in anticipation of a sprint finish. Several opportunists tried their luck on the run-in, but at the end, it was a well-timed attack by 3 riders that held the pack at bay by a handful of seconds. A fall on one of the high-speed descents claimed Navigators' Mark Walters. His Limar helmet was badly damaged, having properly done its job, but he was taken to hospital as a precaution. Cuts, bruises, a bout of road rash and a lot of soreness was the extent of his injuries, so he was released and is expected to be training again shortly.

Henderson extends points lead on difficult day.

If the conditions during yesterday’s individual time trial at the Dodge Tour de Georgia seemed sketchy, then the weather today had to be considered outright hazardous. Riders were bombarded with a succession of rain, hail and lightning over the 215 Km Stage 4. Brian Vandborg (CSC) survived the mayhem to win the slightly uphill sprint finish and take the stage.

The Health Net Pro Cycling Team Presented by Maxxis achieved its main objective on the day: to extend Kiwi sprinter Greg Henderson’s lead in the points competition. At the first sprint of the day, Henderson came second to J.J. Haedo (Colavita-Sutter Home). The three points helped Henderson increase his lead over Stage 1 winner Robbie Hunter (Phonak), who finished third in the opening sprint, to 23-16.

Henderson never had the chance to contest the second sprint, as Jose Luis “Chechu” Rubiera (Discovery) had already gone up the road on what would be the main break of the day. Rubiera, who easily earned the most aggressive rider of the day – along with placing first in all five KoM sprints – attacked on the first climb of the day, just 25 Km into the stage, taking three other riders with him. Rubiera held out until he had cleared the final climb up Woody Gap 195 Km into the stage. By then, the front of the race had been whittled down to 26 riders, a group that included both Justin England and Scott Moninger of Health Net Presented by Maxxis.

Discovery was aggressive all day, leaving the chase to Phonak, who were trying to keep Rubiera close in an effort to protect their leader and yellow jersey wearer, Floyd Landis. And once Rubiera was caught, they launched several attacks to try and isolate Landis, who by the end of the last climb was without the protection of any teammates.

“Between the weather and the pace, it was a very difficult day,” said Scott Moninger, who is recovering from the same bug that afflicted Gord Fraser and John Lieswyn at the Redlands Classic a few weeks ago.

The day took its toll. Between the twin punch of the awful weather and the difficulty of a stage that passed over five rated climbs, the field has been reduced to only 90 riders heading into the even more difficult ride up to Brasstown Bald on Saturday.

Moninger expects even more fireworks out of the stage this year than last, when Lance Armstrong was firmly in control. “The field is much deeper this year with all the ProTour teams in it,” Moninger said. “There are a lot of good climbers who want to have a good showing. Danielson is looking good. Julich is strong. It could be more aggressive this year. But if the weather is bad again tomorrow, it could also be pretty cold going up there. Hopefully it will stay dry.”

With only one intermediate sprint to contest, well into the stage at mile 38, Moninger said the team won’t worry about bringing back a break to win it. “But if it’s still there for the taking, then we’ll try to get Hendy a few more points,” Moninger said.

Moninger would like to see he and England arrive at the base of the final climb with the lead group. From there, he said, it may just be a matter or survival.

Race Notes

The good showing by Moninger and England helped Health Net Presented by Maxxis move up in the overall team classification to fourth place, behind Pro Tour teams Discovery, CSC and Prodir-Saunier Duval.

Ivan Dominguez succumbed to the conditions, becoming one of 14 riders who didn’t finish today’s stage. In addition, 13 riders finished outside the time cut, while two others – J.J. Haedo and Mark McCormick of Colavita-Sutter Home – were disqualified for excessive motopacing behind the team car.
