Coupe des Nations Saguenay Stage 1 Report, Full Results, Video – Kamyshev Wins, Clausen in Yellow

release by the FQSC

May 31, 2012 (Jonquière, QC) – It was a massive sprint that produced the winner on the first of four stages at the Coupe des Nations-Ville de Saguenay on Thursday at Stage 1 in Jonquière, 140.7km. Kazakh Arman Kamyshev crossed the finish line first beating Dane Patrick Clausen by a narrow margin, yet Clausen claimed the yellow leader’s jersey by virtue of time bonuses. He holds a slight lead of two seconds over Kamyshev with Italy’s Thomas Fiumana rounding out the podium.

“It was a difficult day. There was a lot of wind and the rain was annoying, so we had to slow down the pace at the end,” said the winner via an interpreter. “At the end of the last lap, I attacked several times in order to stay well positioned for the sprint.” Second overall last year, he believes his chances of winning this year are good.

Under uncertain skies a total of 88 riders started the 140.7-kilometer race in Jonquiere. Early in the race, a breakaway of three cyclists animated things. However the trio of fugitives was caught before completing the first lap. Several attacks were unleashed during the next two laps, but none were successful.

Halfway through the race two riders tried to escape from the peloton and were joined by four other cyclists who quickly joined them. But they too had to surrender to the charging peloton. With less than 40 kilometers to go the attacks began again and by the seventh and decisive lap, all had been reintegrated back into the group.

A crash in the final kilometers blew the chances for some and tainted the event’s outcome, which was  determined in the final bunch sprint to the line with Kamyshev taking the stage victory.

The second stage, 151 kilometers, takes place on Friday in La Baie. For more information on the Coupe des Nations-Ville de Saguenay visit HERE.
