FBD Insurance Rás — Stage 4 — Jet Fuel Report

May 28, 2005 – After Stage 4 we we’re wondering how much bad luck can fall on Zach in one week? Or, how many unlucky falls Zach can have in a week? Despite that bad luck the team had another active day in this Rás.

Buck made the initial early break of the day, and after that was hauled back by the Recycling.co.uk team, Zach went away in the next counter. That move turned into the move of the race and went over the day’s KOMs, and Zach picked up some points in that competition. With 19 km to go Mark Lovatt had attacked Zach and his other break companions, and in the dash to get things back together in front Zach, Duncan Urquhart and Are Andresen crashed. Zach is OK, and we’ve started to not count how many times he’s crashed this week. He’s still super motivated in the race as are the rest of the guys. Everyone is riding well and we’re hoping our aggressive riding will pay off soon.

Cyclingnews.com has a great wrap up of the stage.

With Tim going down in Niagara this weekend, and Zach’s crashes here we’re hoping we’ve paid the team’s crash quota for the season.
