Trebon and D'Aluisio claim wins at Prophecy Creek Cross The second day of the Mid-Atlantic UCI double-header was held at a new venue in Blue Bell, PA that drew rave reviews from both spectators and riders. The course was quite the opposite of the previous day's course at Granogue that featured lots of climbing and tricky technical sections. The Blue Bell course was wide open and fast, really fast. Two stream crossings made things interesting and claimed a fair share of flat tires. Optimum tire pressure was a big discussion point of the day With a paved road start, the Elite Women's race took off at warp speed and by the time the riders hit the first section of grass, Clif Bar teammates Carmen D'Aluisio and Gina Hall had already established an impressive gap. Newly signed Colavita Bolla rider, Charm Breon was about 50 meters back and behind her sat Christine Vardaros (Velo Bella/ Sally Spicer). While D'Aluisio and Hall set about widening their lead, Vardaros got down to business and slowly reeled in Breon. By the race's halfway point, Vardaros overtook Breon, moved into third and kept on going. Working hard behind Breon was track star Sarah Uhl (Saturn). At the front of the field, D'Aluisio eventually pulled away from Hall and soloed in for her second UCI win in two days. Hall finished second and Vardaros rolled in for third. Same top three finishers both days. Breon held off Uhl who took fourth and fifth, respectively. In the Elite Men's race Todd Wells (Mongoose/Hyundai) set out to duplicate D'Aluisio, by claiming back to back wins. Other riders were out to make sure that didn't happen. One of those riders was Saturday's runner-up, Ryan Trebon (Kona) who got the hole shot and came flying into the first grass section. Trebon's gap didn't hold and a large group of riders were together early in the race. Within that group was Jackson Stewart (Clif Bar) who attacked early on but was no match for the combined horsepower of the group. As the pace took its toll on the group, Wells, Andy Jacques-Mayne (Clif Bar) and Trebon broke free. Once free of the group, Wells and Jacques-Mayne surged, opening up a five second gap on Trebon. That gap grew slightly at times and it looked like the race was leaving Trebon. Trebon obviously had a different view of that opinion and as the riders came back into view on the next lap, Trebon had not only closed the gap, he had blown past both Wells and Jacques-Mayne. Wells matched Trebon's attack and that put Jacques-Mayne in difficulty. As the riders got the bell Jacques-Mayne had fallen off and Trebon started to pull away from Wells. As the crowd anxiously waited at the finish line, Trebon came storming in off the pavement all alone. He had opened an impressive gap over Wells and was able to enjoy the last part of his final lap. Wells soloed in for second and Jacques-Mayne wrapped up third. Bart Bowen (Kona) put in a great ride to claim fourth place and Jackson Stewart took fifth. The Masters 35+ race proved to be one of the most exciting of the day as Rob Hacker (Lite Bites) survived a blazing last minute charge by Chris D'Aluisio (Clif Bar) to take the win. Other winners of the day included Jamey Driscoll (GMBC/Invensys) in the Junior's race, Erica Allar (Fuji) in Women's B and Todd Cassan (Rocinante) in the Men's B race. Brian Webster (SVVC) won the Men's C category.
