Barberi Solos to Win Cannon Falls Road Race as Hill Holds Yellow

The skies may have been sunny and clear, but attacks stormed the peloton in the 85.4 mile (137 km) road race in Cannon Falls. Stefano Barberi (California Giant/Specialized) won the stage by capitalizing on hesitations between fighting teams, attacking his breakaway companions at the start of the 1.9 mile (3 km) finishing circuits and taking all 4 laps solo. Colin Strickland (Elbowz Racing) and Ryan Anderson (Optum p/b Kelly Benefits Strategies) followed behind to take second and third, absorbing the remaining time bonuses. Ben Hill (Donkey Label Racing) finished sixth on the stage with the same time as the field to keep the yellow jersey for one more stage.

After a smooth neutral rollout, teams took turns attacking to find the right breakaway combination. Eventually the decisive break formed, grew 11-riders deep, and stayed together for over half the race.

"Optum was going crazy, and a lot of people were attacking as well," said Hill. "We were mainly just following them because they're the closest GC threat. I was following, and we missed a move. My teammate John towed me to the front then I just went. It took me a good while to get across to the move but once I got there then that was it."

Once a solid gap formed, team cars were allowed up to confer with their riders in the break, and tactics changed again.

"Optum decided they didn't like [the break], then we started playing games," said Hill. "That tired me out a little bit but it worked out in the end. I had to make a choice, I couldn't keep following them all day. I let Will Routley [Optum] go and went back to the bunch with the others, which worked out in the end."

With the break shattered, leaving only Routley, Andres Diaz (Incycle-Cannondale Pro Cycling Team), Chris Barton and Ulises Castillo (KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo), and Nicolae Tanovitchii (Jelly Belly p/b Maxxis), other teams seized the opportunity to bridge up.

"The group split so I jumped across with Joe Schmalz (Hincapie Racing Team) and the two of us along with one other rider just went for it," said Barberi. "We made it across. As soon as we entered the circuits I knew I had to kind of give it a go."

"I knew they were going to be looking at each other. No one wants to be the guy who closes the gap and then have someone counter attack and then they end up missing out on the split. I knew that by going early there was a good chance I was going to get some hesitation."

Barberi claimed the Penn Cycle Most Aggressive Rider jersey for his bold move.

Castillo's work in the break earned him the Sport Beans King of the Hills jersey. Strickland's second place finish came with an eight-second time bonus, moving him into the lead for the Luther VW Top Amateur jersey.

Stefan Rolfe (Elbowz Racing) earned more sprint points on the stage to keep his lead in the K'ul Chocolate Sprint Competition.

Tobin Ortenblad (California Giant/Specialized) finished in the field to hold the Greg LeMond Best Young Rider jersey into tomorrow's Uptown Minneapolis Criterium.
