KODAK GALLERY/SIERRA NEVADA ACTIVE FROM START TO FINISH IN TRENTON

Trenton, New Jersey (June 2, 2018) - The Kodak EasyShare Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional Cycling Team started attacking early in today's Wachovia Cycling Series race in Trenton, and continued their activity near the front of the race until the closing miles, where sprinters Jackson Stewart and Russell Hamby finished in the top 25.

Gord Fraser (Health Net-Maxxis) won a field sprint finish in front of Fred Rodriguez (Davitamon-Lotto), after over 90 miles of racing on Trenton's dogbone-shaped course, which runs in both directions across the finish line on West Main Street.

Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Tim Larkin was the day's first aggressor, going off the front with Seasilver's Jason Bausch in the opening miles. A larger group containing Ben Jacques-Maynes soon bridged up, but the break was reabsorbed by the third lap.

A lap later, Jacques-Maynes escaped again, in a group of four that pursued and caught Discovery Channel's Jurgen VanDenBroek. Ben's early efforts would eventually land him in third place overall in the sprint points competition.

On the sixth of fourteen laps, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Glen Mitchell helped spark a 15-rider break whose gap quickly grew out to 1'30" and eventually well over two minutes.

With powerhouses like Bobby Julich (CSC) and Mark McCormack (Colavita-Sutter Home) - who would eventually escape on their own and hang on until the final lap - the large breakaway had the potential to simply roll away from the pack. But as Mitchell said, "Everyone says they want to work, but everyone wants the free ride, too."

With the field together on the last lap, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Hayden Godfrey pulled teammate Russell Hamby to the front of the field with half a lap remaining, as a Lampre-Caffita rider raised his arms in a mistaken celebration.

As the pack approached the finish, Hamby was a great position but slipped back. "I felt great and I was chomping at the bit on the last lap. But then Vasilli [Davidenko of Navigators Insurance] locked up his back wheel and chopped me in the turn and there was nowhere to go but backwards."

Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Scott Zwizanski, who suffered a terrible crash in Trenton race in 2018, looked comfortable the entire day - even attacking with one lap to go - and finished safely in the field.
