Wohlberg Wins Merco and Talks Biking
by Matt Hansen

What a way to start 2008. Canada's three-time Olympian Eric Wohlberg did what he does best - took a great win - to start the season off for Symmetrics Cycling.

The legendary time triallist did what has worked well for him for almost almost 15 years: solo away to victory. Wohlberg rode alone for almost 40km, finishing ahead of Ben Jacques-Maynes (Bissell) and Anibal Borrajo (Colavita/Sutter Home.) 2008 was a veritable improvement on last year - Wohlberg tried the same thing but was ultimately caught.

Wohlberg made his move from a lead group of 25, which was full of heavy hitters - all of the top American teams ready to show off their stuff: from the infamous Rock Racing team, Colavita/Sutter Home, Bissell, BMC, and more.

"I am happy for myself and the team. We've had some tough times lately with losing some sponsors but I hope that the win signals a healthy year ahead," Wohlberg said after the race. "Cam Evans and Andrew Randell also had good legs so I'm hoping we can carry this form into the other California races."

After the race, Symmetrics Cycling's Kevin Field sat down with Eric and chatted about Wohlberg's love of the sport - what's kept him in cycling for so long. For the full transcript of that rather interesting interview, just click here: www.symmetricscycling.com/race/2008/03_06_08.aspx
