Stage win; GC control.  :snooty

They're certainly in a strong position, but the overall is still very much up for grabs. Magner could pick up bonuses today and tomorrow, but the real test for Floyd's will be on Sunday and the St. Georges stage. The past two years it has produced big GC swings and if there is bad weather like on Megantic then it will be (relative) carnage.

    Stage 3b

    Ah, so it looks like a nice little workout after the morning ITT?  :cool

    The race site does some weird stuff for me. When I tried to "translate" it to English, there's an annoying hovering window that kept blocking out exactly what I was trying to read. The original French version isn't too hard to understand, but I couldn't get all the details I was looking for.

    Results are in:

    I don't think I could sit through 35 laps of any race.   :-x

    Stage 5 (to be elaborated upon)

    With less than a second separating #floyd Nickolas Zukowsky and #rally Tyler Magner, every second truly will count on this, the final stage of the 2019 Tour de Beauce.

    The riders will face another circuit race to close out the week. Sunday's stage will feature 12 laps of a demanding 10.2 km course.

    With everything on the line for the final victory, riders and teams alike will have to be on high alert throughout the day, with team strength and tactics likely to be the deciding factors.

    2018 winner  *ca James Piccoli managed to threaten again this year, right up to the final lap, finishing in 2nd place overall.

    Leave some room on the podium for #floyd:o





    A little recap from

    [I've only just realized that they've been running a nice little blog about the race from their team website.}

    Quote
    Every Canadian cyclist worth his salt-stained jersey wants to do the Tour de Beauce. It’s like a rite of passage.

    The final stage of ‘Beauce’ is a leg grinder of an urban circuit in Saint Georges known for dramatic lead changes, crazy caravan driving, and streets lined with spectators enjoying the race from their lawns. And then there was that time our team car pulled over from the caravan to a lawn BBQ happening on the course. Gord calmly ordered “Trois hot dogs, tous garnis et trois boissons rafraîchissantes svp.” The next lap the hot dogs and drinks were ready for us.

    So yeah, Beauce is a great race that ends with a kick-you-in-the-teeth final stage. This year it did not disappoint, delivering virtual lead changes, some key riders going up the road, teams trying to control and riders cracking out the back. Essentially there was constant action for spectators, race commentators and directors scrambling to make decisions in their cars.

    In the end, however, we got bit in the butt. We entered the race with Nick Zukowsky in yellow and Serghei Tvetcov 3rd at 6 sec. Nick, however, was only in the lead by a fraction of a second; and only 14 seconds separated first from 5th. From the gun to the final couple laps, all the hitters took a swing at Nick. In the end, a well-deserving Brendan Rhim (Arapahoe) took the overall with Nick falling to 3rd behind 2018 winner, James Piccoli (Canada). There was some consolation in Keegan Swirbul finishing the stage on the podium, behind Diego Milan (Canels) and Rhim, and moving into 4th GC with Tvetcov in 5th. Zuke took the Young Rider’s jersey and we won the Team Competition.

    But we really wanted to win the overall at Beauce with Zuke. A side of me wants to remind everyone that Zuke just turned 21, and that he won the Grand Prix Cycliste de Saguenay and finished 3rd at Beauce. During that stretch he raced 10 times in 11 days over two stage races and wore yellow for 7 of those days. That’s a lot of defending but really, in the end, the 2019 edition of the Tour de Beauce got away from us.
