Circuit Cycliste Sarthe Stage 1 – Lacombe 6th

report by SpiderTech p/b C10

April 5, 2011 (St-Mars-la-Jaille, France) – Kevin Lacombe (Can) Team SpiderTech Powered By C10 finished 6th at Stage 1 from Le Chateau-d’Olonne to St-Mars-la-Jaille 191km taken by Daniele Bennati (Ita) Leopard Trek over Samuel Dumoulin (Fra) Cofidis, Le Credit En Ligne in second and Nacer Bouhanni (Fra) FDJ in third.

RACE Info from Team Director, Steve Bauer:
The game plan at the outset is to win the overall. Svein Tuft has been riding very strong and we believe he may be able to surprise in the Time Trial tomorrow. We knew Leopard Trek was bringing Benatti to win the stages and possibly the overall.

Our strategy was to be vigilant on the front of the race, not necessarily go into breakaways but to be sure to protect our interest in the overall if we needed to chase. We did not want to waste energy unnecessarily because we felt Leopard would control.

As it happened: Sure enough Leopard Trek took control of the race. Two of their riders went into a breakaway and the Leopard riders set tempo. The duo took the main seconds of three and two for both of the first sprints. After the first break was caught, Thomas Voekler was very active but to no avail. One Big Mat rider went clear with 83 km to go, only to engage the Leopard team once more to control the race. Into the four final circuits of 6.4 kilometers each, it was evident that the most likely scenario of a bunch sprint would occur. Keven Lacombe wanted to do the sprint without support and not risking our team before the Time Trial. Keven finished an excellent 6th place.

“We are pleased with a relaxed, relatively easy day before the two split stages tomorrow with 97 km in the morning and the all important 6.8 km Time Trial in the afternoon. We are confident in Svein’s ability to do a good ride,” says Bauer

Lacombe commented after the finish: “I have good legs and felt strong in the final kilometers but I think I am still lacking some speed for the final 150-meter kick. The goals of the team are for General Classification and for Svein but I will still shoot for the sprints if the chance permits again.”
