Sainte-Anne, Guadeloupe, 9 août 2001- Le Tour de la Guadeloupe s'est poursuivi jeudi avec la présentation de la septième étape. Le peloton, d'une centaine de coureurs, a parcouru un trajet de 118 kilomètres dont l'issue s' est décidée en échappée. Cédric Jordan de la formation France Télécom a été le premier à franchir la ligne d'arrivée avec une avance de 50 secondes. Au sprint du peloton, Martin Nuckle a bien fait en décrochant la quatrième place de l'étape.

"Les Vénézuéliens et les Cubains ont contrôlé la course', d'expliquer Nuckle. Malgré plusieurs tentatives d'échappées, personne - sauf le gagnant de l'étape - n'a véritablement été en mesure de s'extirper du peloton. 'Ce n'était pas vraiment évident de sortir du peloton."

Du côté de Martin St-Laurent, son rôle s'est résumé à couvrir les attaques, surtout en fin de course. 'Dans les derniers 30 kilomètres, Josh (Hall) - meilleur Canadien au classement général avec une cinquième place - nous a demandé de couvrir toutes les échappées, car les Cubains et les Vénézuéliens commençaient à être fatigués. C'est ce à quoi s'est résumée ma journée.'

Toujours pas de changement au classement général. Les Vénézuéliens Rodolfo Camacho et Carlos Ochoa monopolisent les deux premières place alors que les Canadiens occupent les places suivantes : Josh Hall est cinquième, Jacob Erker huitième, Svein Tuft 19e, Ross Hooker 27e, Martin Nuckle 38e et Martin St-Laurent 50e.

121 kilomètres sont au programme de l'épreuve de vendredi.

Translation

The Tour of Guadaloupe continued Thursday with the sixth stage. A group of a hundred riders rode the 118 kilometers with the winner escaping to cross the finish alone. Cédric Jordan of the France Telecom formation was the first to cross the finish line with a 50 second gap. Martin Nuckle was third in the group finish to take fourth place of the stage.

"Venezuelans and the Cubans controlled the race", said Nuckle. In spite of several attempts at escapes, nobody - except the winner of the stage - truly was able to drop the group. ' It was not easy to get away from the group."

Martin St-Laurent's role for the stage was to cover the attacks, especially near the final part of the stage. "In the last 30 kilometers, Josh (Hall) - who hold fifth place in GC - asked us to cover all the escapes, as the Cubans and Venezuelans were starting to tire. That was my job for the day."

No change to the general classification. Venezuelan Rodolfo Camacho and Carlos Ochoa hold first and second positions whereas the Canadians occupy the following places: Josh Hall is fifth, Jacob Erker 8th, Svein Tuft 19th, Ross Hooker 27th, Martin Nuckle 38th and Martin St-Laurent 50th. Friday's stage is 121 km.


Seasonal Trail Closure Announcement

Parks Canada has announced that a seasonal closure that pertains to the Moraine Lake Highline Trail will be implemented today, August 10th. This closure was one that was negotiated by the Bow Valley Mountain Bike Alliance with Parks Canada following a study done by Jake and Dr. Stephen Herrero.

The purpose of the closure is to allow any bears in the immediate vicinity of Moraine Lake to feed undisturbed on the berry crop that grows on the east slopes of Mt Temple and to help ensure the safety of any trail users in area. The closure will be in effect for approximately one month and applies to all trail users not just mountain bikers. As recommended by Dr. Herrero, the closure will apply only to the 3.8 kilometre section of the trail closest to Moraine Lake. The rest of the trail is still open to all trail users but it means turning around at the highest point on the trail if you ride or hike up from the Lake Louise end. Access to the trail from Moraine Lake will not be available. The trail will still be a great ride albeit a little short and no panoramic views.

Parks Canada will monitor the berry crop and when the berries are finished for the season the trail will reopen to all trail users. The BVMBA would appreciate your assistance in informing other riders of this temporary situation.
