Nokere Koerse
Bert Roesems (Davitamon/Lotto) Wins

Today was the traditional Nokere Koerse with start at Oudenaarde and finish atop of the Nokereberg. The distance was 194 km, with 45 km on line, followed by 10 local circuits of some 15 km.

The first attack saw the breakaway of 16 racers. The gap reached 1 ½ minutes when they saw Nokere for the first time. The peloton started chasing, and the second local circuit saw general regrouping. Very soon, another attack started, with 11 men, and 60 km from the finish, they were caught by a pack of some 30 wheels.

Two Davitamon-Lotto were with this group, Bert Roesems and Jan Kuyckx. Then a smaller group of 17 men attacked, with Bert, and this proved to be the winning breakaway...

The decision came in the last circuit, when Bert attacked some 10 kilometres from the finish, doing a nice little bit of time trial like racing. Bert resisted to the finish and won the race solo. Twenty seconds later, Wouter Weylandt (Quick.Step-Innergetic) won the sprint for second, ahead of the Brit Jeremy Hunt (Unibet.com)

The Leone jersey is a reflection of the passion, color and excitement of Italian cycling

Each unique Solo jersey is our interpretation of the styles worn by the great riders of the 50’s and 60’s. Solo jerseys are cut and tailored from Sport X Dry fabric taking advantage of the moisture-wicking properties that characterize modern cycling material. This fabric encourages Solo to use colors, patterns and styles that are not possible using wool. It’s the best of both worlds. Retro styles using modern fabric. We pay great attention to the finer details that separate Solo jerseys from the bunch: An 18cm front zip with an over-size zipper pull for gloved fingers, customized silicon elastic waist band, additional rear zipped pocket (safe storage for phones & keys etc) and our unique polycotton/lycra arm and neck bands.

Rib fracture Robbie McEwen
Will ride Milan San Remo
After returning home from Tirreno-Adriatico, where he suffered a lot with rib and back problems, Robbie decided to get checked out in the AZ Geraardsbergen Hospital.
An x-ray and CT scan clearly show a fracture of the 5th rib on the right side, which occured in his crash during the final stage of the 3 days of West Vlaanderen. Robbie have worked very hard and suffered so much to get this far, that he decided to ride Milan-San Remo, despite the break then consider what to do from there.

T=Mobile Roster for Milan - San Remo
Without a sprinter the caliber of Boonen or Petacchi, Mario Kummer weighs his options to win La Primavera and names his roster for Saturday.

T-Mobile bank on team effort at ‘La Primavera’
Spring has nearly arrived and the professional cycling season begins in earnest on Saturday with the prestigious Milan-San Remo, the longest one day race on the season calendar. It is the race the Italians call "la Primavera" or "la Classicissima" - the Classic of Classics - and this year's edition is one of the most eagerly anticipated of recent years.

For the seven hour slog over the gruelling 294km course the T-Mobile Team has nominated a platoon of proven classics specialists; Lorenzo Bernucci, Andreas Klier, Sergey Ivanov, Stephan Schreck and Steffen Wesemann arrive in Milan fresh off competing in the eight-day Tirreno-Adriatico. They will be joined in Italy’s Lombardy region by Marcus Burghardt, Linus Gerdemann and Patrik Sinkewitz who warmed-up for the event at last week's 'Race to the Sun' in France.

T-Mobile sport and technical director Mario Kummer believes his team are going into this year's race as underdogs, however. In recent years the tendency has been for the race to be decided in a mass sprint on the Via Roma in San Remo, and Kummer doesn’t believe he has the hardware to challenge in a wide open bunch showdown: "Without a Petacchi, Freire or Boonen in our ranks, we don’t have the firepower."

Kummer is looking more towards a cohesive team performance from his eight and says: "We are a compact team overall and we have options."

Sporting director Valerio Piva will base the team strategy and tactics on the crunch Cipressa (km 272) and Poggio (km 288) climbs, where the race can often be won or lost. Attacks are expected and T-Mobile will be probing for chances and working hard to get a rider into any moves.
'La Primavera' is the race every Italian cyclist dreams of winning and Lorenzo Bernucci is one of T-Mobile's strongest cards. According to Piva, the Tuscany-native showed at Tirreno-Adriatico he is "in good shape" and has been riding his way into ‘the right condition’ for the epic classic. Together with Schreck and Wesemann, the Italian put in an extra training shift after stage four, and the trio also put in some extra training before Sunday’s time trial.

This year a grand showdown in San Remo is expected between two of cycling's biggest names, Alessandro Petacchi and Tom Boonen. Petacchi and his Milram train were firing-on-all-cylinders Tuesday at Tirreno-Adriatico and they'll be hard to beat come Saturday on Via Roma. Meanwhile "Tornado Tom" has been in devastating form at Paris-Nice, where he brought his season wins tally to ten.

Sparks are sure to fly and the outcome of this Petacchi v. Boonen clash could set the tone for all subsequent sprints in 2006. For Piva, however, one thing is clear: "If we get the chance to stop this race ending in a bunch sprint then we should take it."

T-Mobile Roster:
Lorenzo Bernucci
Andreas Klier
Sergey Ivanov
Stephan Schreck
Steffen Wesemann
Marcus Burghardt
Linus Gerdemann
Patrik Sinkewitz

PORTLAND, Oregon:  The Oregon Bicycle Racing Association’s (OBRA) 2006 Banana Belt Road Racing Series completes its ever-popular three-race schedule this Sunday, March 19, at Henry Hagg Lake in Forest Grove, announced Race Director Jeff Mitchem.

Round 3 of the 2006 Banana Belt series a two-decade tradition is expected to draw up to 400 of the region’s best bicycle road racers to the challenging, roller-coaster roads of Scoggins Valley Park and Henry Hagg Lake. The Hagg Lake circuit is a muscle-and-lung searing 11-mile loop that confronts riders with 750 feet of net elevation gain on each lap.

“With the hills and roadsides covered in snow, last week looked like the classic European stage race, Paris-Nice,” explained Mitchem. “It was cold early, but the day turned out to be an excellent one for bike racing.”

Nine classes of competition again will be featured, including Men’s Category Pro/1/2, Men’s Category 3, Men’s Category 4, Men’s Category 5, Men’s Masters 40-plus, Men’s Masters 50-plus, Women’s Category 1/2/3, Women’s Category 4, and Juniors. And riders will be racing for more than simple recognition and ribbons: $4,400 in gift certificates will be awarded to the top finishers, as well as $500 in cash to the top Pro riders.

Racing starts at 9 a.m., with the Pro/1/2 men, followed by Cat 3, and women’s classes. At noon, Cat 4 men, Cat 5 men, Masters men, and junior begin. Races range from 33 to 77 miles ( 3 laps to 7) depending on the class.
Registration opens at 8 a.m. and is open until 15 minutes prior to a race start time. Entry fees are $5 for juniors and $22 for all other classes, the day of the event. Send entry fee check to Jeff Mitchem, 4814 S.E. Harrison St. Portland, OR 97215. An OBRA licenses will be required, with single-race and yearly OBRA licenses available.

Great River Energy Festival Renews Sponsorship of Bicycle Events
Events Proceeds Benefit Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota

Minneapolis, Minnesota: Officials at Great River Energy have announced that they will continue their sponsorship of the Great River Energy Bicycle Festival, an event that includes the Nature Valley Grand Prix professional races, through 2008. This sponsorship, which began in 2000, is one of the longest running title sponsorships currently active in professional bicycle racing.

“The Great River Energy Bicycle Festival is an excellent fit with our corporate goals,” said Great River Energy CEO David Saggau. “This is one of the very few national events that has been created by volunteers from the community. The Festival also raises money for an important statewide charity, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. As a cooperative, supporting the community is at an integral part of our business.”

The Great River Energy Bicycle Festival is a five day celebration of the bicycle culture in Minnesota taking place on June 14 to 18 in 2006 in Saint Paul, Cannon Falls, Minneapolis, Mankato and Stillwater. The highlight of the event is the Nature Valley Grand Prix professional stage race, ranked among the top three stage races in the United States. Other Festival activities include amateur racing, professional stunt rider demonstrations, the Caribou Coffee kids’ run races, live music and family activities.

“Great River Energy has been an important partner to our event” said Festival director David LaPorte. “They took a chance in 2000 when we were a small event. The Festival events now draw over 50,000 people to the downtowns of our five host communities. This kind of growth just wouldn’t have happened without Great River Energy.”

Proceeds from the Great River Energy Bicycle Festival benefit programs at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, the largest children’s health care organization in the upper Midwest. For the past three years, the Festival’s contributions have been directed to the Hospice and Palliative Care Program to pay for programs and services that would not be covered by insurance.

About Great River Energy: Great River Energy is a non-profit electric cooperative providing wholesale electric energy and related services to 28 distribution cooperatives serving nearly 1.5 million people in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Headquartered in Elk River, MN, Great River Energy is the second largest utility in Minnesota and the fourth largest utility of its type in the country.

SRAM Doubles the Fun with Two Extra Days of Invitational Dirt Jumping Competition
SRAM's New Force(TM) Road Group: Read About it Here, See it First at Sea Otter
Launch: successful at SRAM's MTB Ride Zone
Crowds at this year's Sea Otter Classic, the world's largest cycling festival, will have twice as many reasons to cheer (or gasp in amazement) since SRAM's Invitational Dirt Jump Contest has been extended to all four days of the event. And, after weeks of online ogling, consumers will get their first chance to get their hands on SRAM's much-buzzed about Force road group. This year the multi-sport, four-day "Celebration of Cycling' begins on April 6 at Laguna Seca Recreation Area in Monterey, CA.

The invite list for the Dirt Jump Contest reads like a "who's who" in the world of dirt jumping. Jamie Goldman (Santa Cruz Syndicate) will need to defend his title from standout aerialists like Gary Fisher's Greg Watts, who lately has been landing backflip-barspins and backflip-tailwhips; Chris Van Dine (Cannondale), who executed his first barrel roll at Sea Otter in 2005; and Paul Basagoitia (Kona Clump), who has twice won the big Crankworx Slopestyle and may have a 720 in him. Find out what happens when the celebrities try to best each other on the dirt jump designed by Rob Giustina from On-Course Events.
"The Sea Otter dirt jump contest always offers the best action for spectators," said Scott Hart, editor of Decline magazine. "What other cycling event allows you the comfort of sitting upon a soft, grassy hillside while two-wheeled lunatics attempt to take flight aboard bicycles just to entertain you? Watch them succeed or watch them fail, just be sure to bring a lemonade."
Practice for the Invitational Dirt Jump Competition takes place from 1-4 p.m. on both Thursday and Friday. The first round of competition begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday. The top eight finishers advance to Sunday's finals; scoring will be done by three judges and the highest total score wins.

Cool-hunters to swarm SRAM Tech Tent to see the Force in 3-D
SRAM's new Force shifter featuring DoubleTap(TM)

Intriguing yet nameless at last year's Interbike, SRAM's newest creation has snatched the limelight in recent weeks with its debut at the Amgen Tour of California and with mentions all across cyberspace. So far only members of the Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada and Orbea pro road teams have sampled SRAM's Force road group but that's about to change.

"Visitors to the SRAM tech area at the Sea Otter Classic will be able to experience pretty much the full range of SRAM products highlighted by the SRAM Force road group," said Michael Zellmann, PR and media manager for SRAM. "People will be able to test both road and mountain bike demos with hands-on shifting for both the Force and X.0 groupsets."

The Force 10-speed group includes integrated levers, front and rear derailleur, brake calipers, cranks, bottom bracket, chain, and cassette. The entire Force group's projected weight is 2138 grams. To virtually experience the Force, visit www.sram.com. To really experience the Force, drop by SRAM's Tech Tent anytime from April 6-9 at the 16th Annual Sea Otter Classic.

Catch even more air at SRAM's Mountain Bike Ride Zone hosted by Bikeskills
Back for another year, SRAM's irresistible Ride Zone hosted by Bikeskills will lure young thrill-seekers out searching for the "best of cool" at this year's Sea Otter. Riders looking for a rush will find bridges, jumps, teeter-totters, ladders, rails and more set up for them to test their skills and push their limits. Obstacles come in all shapes and sizes and under the advice of a few celebrated pros lurking about to help out, what might seem impossible on Thursday becomes the so-called "piece of cake" by Sunday.
"What we're attempting to create in the Ride Zone is a riding environment that will appeal to a wide variety of riders," explained Chris Duncan of Bikeskills. "Our goal is to provide a "miniature" re-creation of a number of riding styles and disciplines. For example, one of the hottest types of riding these days takes place on what's called a "pump track." A pump track is a small, roughly circular track that has a series of small jumps and rollers that require not only skill and timing, but also tremendous anaerobic and aerobic fitness. We'll also have some small "table-topped" jumps."
"We're developing something new that will address the single biggest segment of mountain biking, an area we're calling the "cross country perimeter track." The goal is to have a series of common obstacles and terrain characteristics that are encountered on an exciting single-track ride, like switchbacks, log crossings, rock gardens, and sandy sections."
The SRAM Mountain Bike Ride Zone opens each day at 8 a.m. and goes all day until 6 p.m. A one-day entry fee costs only $10 and the real bargain is the four-day pass for only $20. Kids under 12 are free with adult entry.

Let the trash talking end at the SRAM MTB Industry Cup
Who makes rounder wheels, Mavic or Bontrager? Who crafts the softest chamois, Pearl Izumi or Louis Garneau? Who can get down a hill faster, Maverick or Santa Cruz? Let's find out, shall we, when bike biz CEO's, sales reps, welders, designers, bean counters, train spotters--even existentialists--get to bring their industry rivalry to the playing field at SRAM's MTB Industry Cup April 8-9.
The SRAM MTB Industry Cup offers a chance for the otherwise mellow product developer to show that lummox magazine editor just exactly how his lousy review was received when said product developer zings past said editor while hurling a few choice words of his own. Bike industry teams of four employees compete against other teams in two Sea Otter stages: a MTB downhill stage* and a MTB cross-country stage. What does the winner get? First place gets possession of the dinged and dented legendary Sea Otter Industry Cup Trophy (can I get a "woo hoo?")
The rules:
Teams must come from within the cycling industry.
Teams consist of four employees, with at least one woman or one man.
Other SRAM sponsored events at Sea Otter include: SRAM Amateur Circuit Race (Friday, April 7), SRAM Amateur Road Race (Saturday, April 8), SRAM Pro NRC Circuit Race (Saturday April 8), SRAM MTB Short Track (Friday and Saturday, April 7-8), SRAM MTB Cross-Country (Sunday, April 9), SRAM Pro MTB UCI Stage Race (Thursday - Sunday, April 6-9) and SRAM MTB Gravity Events - Mountain Cross, Downhill, Dual Slalom (Thursday - Sunday, April 6-9).
* Industry Cup Riders will practice downhill and race with the beginner downhill riders.
About SRAM: SRAM is an innovative global leader in bicycle component manufacturing with top brands that include SRAM components, RockShox suspension, Avid brakes, and Truvativ cranks, bars and stems. SRAM's official road group launch will take place in the U.S. at the Sea Otter Classic in early April.
About Sea Otter Classic LLC: The 16th Annual Sea Otter Classic will be held April 6 - 9, 2006 at the Laguna Seca Recreation Area, Monterey, California, USA.

Dual Pupose Water Bottle System: Gel Bot

GEL-BOT, a water bottle system that provides energy and hydration during endurance sports, is unveiled
ventureDESIGNworks announces the launch of GEL-BOT, a revolutionary water bottle system for endurance athletes. GEL-BOT is a sports bottle that provides access to both water and energy gel in one container. Perfect for cycling, running, triathlon or any sport that requires extensive refueling, GEL-BOT will help athletes achieve peak performance through proper energy and hydration.

Athletes worldwide agree on the effectiveness of energy gels, but the combination of cumbersome packaging and the immediate need for water makes them difficult to use during activity. With GEL-BOT, athletes can drink water and eat energy gel from one bottle. The gel is housed inside the ENERGY-CORE, a piston-like device attached to the water bottle cap that is filled with gel before activity. To eat the gel, simply squeeze the bottle with the cap valve pressed in. To drink water, pull out the valve and squeeze, just like any standard water bottle. No more fumbling with foil packets and leaky gel flasks, and no more having to slow down to refuel. GEL-BOT allows for quick consumption of gel and water during any sport. It’s great for cycling, running, adventure racing, triathlon, nordic skiing—or even at the gym.

GEL-BOT is a must-have for any athlete looking to take endurance-sport performance to the next level. This system is designed to work with any energy gel, in any weather condition, and is easy to use and clean. GEL-BOT holds up to 24 ounces of water and 3.2 ounces of energy gel.

GEL-BOT is available through www.GEL-BOT.com and at sports equipment retailers nationwide. This is the third product released by ventureDESIGNworks, a privately held company that designs innovative, user-focused products and services. Check out www.venturedesignworks.com for news, more information and other cutting-edge products

National Bike Summit 2006 a Rousing Success
From honoring Senator Jim Jeffords (I-VT) at a congressional reception to meeting with more than 350 Congressional offices, the more than 375 National Bike Summit attendees made a difference for bicycling in America this year. Twenty-two Representatives and nine Senators signed on to join the Bike Caucus--and a new Bike Caucus Web site is in the works.
"This was a very intense, invigorating experience," one attendee said. "I learned a lot." In addition to speakers from bicycle friendly communities across the country, attendees networked with some of the most powerful people in bicycling today--each other. "I'm still glowing from the experience on Capitol Hill. Thank you, thank you!" said another enthusiastic attendee. For photos of the event, see the next issue of American Bicyclist in early April.
League Clarifies Purpose in Bylaws
At the League Board of Directors meeting following the National Bike Summit, the board voted unanimously (with one abstaining vote) to amend the bylaws to include the League's purpose. The exact new wording, as introduced by Board Member Amanda Jones Eichstaedt is:
Section 2 - Purpose: The corporation is organized and operated exclusively for the charitable and educational purposes that follow:
a) Promote and protect the rights of bicyclists.
b) Advocate for the interests of bicyclists.
c) Support bicycling skills education.
d) Promote bicycling for fun, fitness and transportation.
National Trails Symposium Call for Papers
The 18th National Trails Symposium will be held October 19-22, 2006 in Davenport, Iowa. The Call for Presentations is available now by clicking here and includes submission instructions. The deadline for submitting proposals is April 1, 2006. Online registration will be available in June.
South Dakota Update
Because of the work of a League member in South Dakota, and a group of committed cyclists, the South Dakota Senate Judiciary Committee recently amended a bill that would have excluded bicycles from the definition of “vehicles.” Cyclists will maintain their full rights to the road as vehicles in South Dakota … for now. The League will continue to watch the legislation until it passes the full Senate. Ironically, the same day, the state Supreme Court upheld a ruling stating that the law clearly defines vehicles to include bicycles.
Indoor Bike Racks Restored in Victory for MassBike
In late 2001, the well-located and heavily-utilized indoor bike racks at the Back Bay T station were removed, with the MBTA citing security concerns. Cyclists were left to park outside, without weather protection and with fewer eyes ensuring the safety of their bicycles. MassBike has aggressively stayed on top of the issue, and continued to work with the MBTA. In January, the agency installed two indoor bike racks. MassBike commends General Manager Dan Grabauskas for his assistance in this matter and his recognition that indoor bike racks belong at this location.
BikeHouston Looking for Executive Director
BikeHouston is searching for an executive director. BikeHouston is a 501(c)3 organization with the mission to promote safe bicycling and to improve the quality of life in the Houston area. Ideal applicants should be experienced cycling advocates with demonstrated success developing non-profit organizations. The ED will join BikeHouston as the first full-time employee of the organization and will find the support of an enthusiastic board of directors, advisors and members ready and willing to help BikeHouston grow into a larger and more influential advocacy organization.
