PureBlack's Lyttle Takes Back KOM in Canada
19 Jun, 2011
Todays 125km stage was on a circuit course through old Quebec City with 9 laps of a 13.9km course. “The teams day started with a 1.5 hour drive to Quebec City from Beauce to a course which was reminiscent of Philadelphia although obviously a bit shorter” said Carl Williams PureBlack Racings Sporting Director. “Once again thousands and thousands of people lined the course to cheer the teams on today.”

“The plan for the day was to take the King of the Mountain Jersey back and put ourselves in a position to win the stage” said Carl. “The guys executed it flawlessly, wrapping up all the King of the Mountain points on offer to put Scott Lyttle back in the Polka dot jersey he has previously held for 2 days. Mike Northey and James Williamson absolutely slaughtered themselves in the break today to try and set Glen Chadwick up for a stage win but in a final bunch sprint Glen finished just 4 seconds behind the stage winner in 7th place.”

Nearing the completion of the 3rd lap with King of the Mountain points up for grabs PureBlack Racing set up a train at the front of the peloton to lead Scott out to take the KOM points and in the process grabbed all the points available.

Into lap 4 and the high speed of the race splintered the peloton into 3 groups with the lead break away group containing Gen Chadwick, James Williamson and Mike Northey. By the end of the 4th lap the gap had grown to 2 minutes and after it see sawed a little with attempts to bring it back by lap 7 it had extended further to 4 minutes and with all the GC contenders safely in the 2nd group they were happy for it to remain that way to the end.

On the second to last lap Glen went solo off the front building up a 12 second gap. Another rider eventually joined him and they held the lead right to the final hill climb where they were caught. Glen rode into 7th place just 4 seconds back from stage winner Rob Bush of Chipolte Development team.

Scott Lyttle rode in with all the other riders in GC contention to collect his red polka dot KOM jersey and in 8th place in overall GC. Tim Gudsell who spent the day in the 2nd GC group working for Scott is still in the Top 20 for overall GC in 17th place.
