LAST LAP ATTACK
FALLS SHORT IN MCLANE ROAD RACE
California (March 6, 2005) - Despite the lack of a marquee result, the
Kodak EasyShare Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional Cycling Team had a
strong showing in today's McLane Pacific Foothills Road Race in Merced,
In a generally uneventful 120 mile race that was tightly controlled by
the teams of the dominant sprinters, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada co-captain
Tim Larkin had perhaps the day's most dangerous breakaway when he attacked
with 20 miles remaining and held a gap of up to 1'15" before being
caught inside the last 3 miles.
Glen Mitchell, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's other co-captain, was the
team's top finisher in 14th place. "The team was really active in
the last two laps," Mitchell said, "and Tim's move was really
impressive. Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada definitely earned respect today."
