Cylance Pro Cycling Achieves Two World Tour Podiums at Amgen Tour of California

Cylance Pro Cycling achieved two additional World Tour podiums at the Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women’s Race empowered by SRAM in the four days of racing.  The team has totaled five World Tour podiums in nine days, including the resounding victory at the Tour of Chongming Island.


The first stage of the Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women’s Race empowered by SRAM takes the riders around the scenic Lake Tahoe before finishing up the steep incline of the Heavenly Ski Resort.  Alison Tetrick (USA) animated the race early and often, finding herself in a solo breakaway leading into the second major climb.  After she was caught, she continued to attack to keep the race fast and aggressive.  Into the finish, Krista Doebel-Hickok, once again showed her climbing strengths with a 5th place finish up the slopes of the mountain.


The queen stage was conquered on the second day of racing, as the women crested the first climb on Highway 89, which was 6.7 kilometers, within the first 15 kilometers of racing.  The peloton sped down the descent into Diamond Valley with speeds excess of 100 kph.  With echelons and attacks in the flats leading into the penultimate climb, the race was nervous and aggressive.  Kirsten Wild (NED) won the intermediate sprint on the bottom slopes of Kingsbury Grade and set up Doebel-Hickok perfectly to tackle the 13 kilometer climb.  The race shattered on the 40 minute effort as climber Doebel-Hickok crested the mountain in a very select group behind two additional riders.  Teammates Dani King (GBR), Rossella Ratto (ITA), and Jasinska (POL) climbed strongly not far behind.  Doebel-Hickok remained in her group over the climb to finish just behind the two leaders to take third on the stage.

After two mountainous stages, the last two stages were ones for the sprinters.  The team rallied around Kirsten Wild (NED) who is notably one of the best sprinters in the world.  With one win and two podiums at the recent Tour of Chongming Island, Wild is in good form to win in any fast finish.  Stage 3 began in Elk Grove and paralleled the Sacramento River as the race continued through the delta to finish at the Capitol Mall in downtown Sacramento  The team controlled the race to set up Wild, but an unfortunate near crash caused Wild to require a bike change within the final kilometer, which took her out of contention for the sprint.

With renewed focus for the final stage, the team once again, was ready to race for Wild in the finishing circuits.  The final stage included 20 fast and technical laps around the state capitol of California.  As predicted, the race was destined for a sprint finish.  With excellent teamwork, Wild sprinted to a close third place result.  This was the second podium for the team at the Amgen Breakaway from Heart Disease Women’s Race empowered by SRAM and the fifth World Tour podium in the month of May!


“I am proud my team and their hard work, no matter the course or the tactic” says Manel Lacambra, Director Sportif.  “They have shown they are a capable of big results at any type of race and always work as a team.”

This morning, the women of Cylance Pro Cycling previewed large sections of the Ronde van Vlaanderen course, covering the famed Eikenberg, Haaghoek, Wolvenberg,and Kanarieberg hill and pavé sectors. Known as the Tour of Flanders, the Ronde is the fifth round of the UCI Women's World Tour circuit taking place on April 2 in Belgium. Cyance Pro Cycling will bring a focused and prepared team to race this iconic classic.

This year's edition will take the women on a 153.3 kilometer lap which starts and finishes in Oudenaarde. On today’s recon ride the team focused on the pavé and hill sectors, including the potentially decisive Kanarieberg Hill which averages 7.7% for 1000m with a max elevation of 14%.

Rossella Ratto (ITA) had a strong race at Ronde van Vlaanderen last year is excited to return to the race in 2017.  “I am personally looking forward to it, and hoping to get the same good day as last year’s race” says Rossella.  “The race course changed a lot, with more technical sections following the muurs, and then the epic Kapelmuur. I think we have a really focused lion Sheyla, a strong Jasi, and a super professional Dani who has studied every kilometer of the course. Then we have Marta, ready to protect us as we were her daughters!”

After riding the course, Malgorzata Jasinkska (POL) says “it will be a long and hard race, but our asset is that we met the road well. I think the real race will start on the Kapelmuur. The last 3 muurs are very heavy, but we have a rugged and strong team.”

Joining Rossella and Jasi, will be Sheyla Guittieriez (ESP), Dani King (GBR), Marta Tagliaferro (ITA) and Joelle Numainville (CAN). The team is ready to race strong and calculated on Sunday.

This past weekend saw both the Cylance Pro Cycling men’s and women’s teams in action and finding success. In Europe the women’s team put together a strong result at the Women’s WorldTour event, Gent Wevelgem, while, in the US, both the men and women took on the American Racing Calendar event, San Dimas Stage Race.

The fourth round of the Women’s WorldTour, Gent-Wevelgem is often called the sprinters' classic due to its flat finishing terrain, its early-season date means riders are often tested by wind and rain, as well as several climbs, including two ascents of the steep and fully cobbled Kemmelberg. The terrain and conditions proved to be divisive once again as it took a full team effort to ensure our strongest riders were in position for the final kick to the line. "The team rode strong together,” added Director Sportif, Manel Lacambra. “Jasi [Małgorzata Jasinska] did great work for Sheyla [Gutiérrez] in the final!" With Jasi looking after Sheyla in a reduced bunch sprint (where she finished 10th), Sheyla was able to prove once again that she is one of the most consistent riders this Spring season.

Krista Doebel-Hickok used this past weekend’s San Dimas Stage Race to prove that she is currently one of the strongest riders on domestic soil. Krista set the tone on stage 1 by taking the uphill time trial by over a minute over her second place rival, enough to ensure she wouldn’t have to work much to secure the overall jersey over the following two stages. However, Krista wasn’t satisfied with resting on her laurels and stormed ahead of the field in the stage 2 sprint finish with a fist in the air. When the weekend was over Krista had single-handedly secured two stage victories, the Queen of the Mountain’s Polka Dot Jersey, and the Race Winner’s Yellow Jersey. Talk about Bringing the Green!

The Cylance Pro Cycling Men’s team finished up their residency in California with last weekend’s San Dimas Stage Race. In the final race before the team begins the UCI America’s Tour Calendar with Joe Martin Stage Race, the men’s team followed up on Krista’s success in San Dimas by taking the Stage 1 uphill time trial as well. Kyle Murphy set the fastest time on the day, three seconds ahead of his nearest rival, on his disc equipped Cannondale SuperSix Hi Mod Evo bike. The team survived a brutal onslaught of attacks on stage two to carry the leader’s jersey into the final day, however on stage 3 the men weren’t able to close a gap to a small break up the road and the team would slip to 4th overall. Kyle would keep his King of the Mountains jersey to go with his stage one victory making the race a success despite the heartbreak on the final stage. Up next is the Joe Martin Stage Race where the team will again tackle a stage one uphill time trial and an opportunity for redemption.
