SUBWAY & Odlin Two Stages From Clinching Korea Sprinters Title
23 Apr, 2011

The SUBWAY® Pro Cycling made it through very cold conditions and remains focused on bringing home the sprinters jersey being worn by Paul Odlin.

 

With only two stages of the 10 day tour left SUBWAY® Pro Cycling’s Odlin leads Nakajima Yasuharu from the Asian Racing Team by two points in the race for the tour’s best sprinter.

 

Today’s 192 kilometre stage seven had three mountain climbs and there were no sprint points on offer. SUBWAY® Pro Cycling rider Westley Gough said it got colder the higher and longer the stage went. 

 

“It was seven degrees and there was heavy rain at the start but none of us were expecting it to get colder, but it dropped down to one degree going over the last mountain pass. The whole peloton was just shivering from start to finish today,” he said.

 

SUBWAY® Pro Cycling Manager Graeme Miller said it was a very tough day for all the boys on a day with a lot of casualties.

 

“We just did our best to limit our losses - it was an extremely cold two hundred kilometres,” he said.

 

“We have some mild hypothermia on what really was an epic character building day.”

 

Miller said SUBWAY® Pro Cycling’s Matt Gorter did not complete today’s stage so the team is down to four riders for tomorrows 145 kilometre stage eight from Yangyang to Chuncheon.

 

The tour ends with a 47 kilometre circuit in Seoul on Sunday with sprint points of offer after 27 kilometres of racing. 

Miller says the clear focus is to position Paul to win enough points on Sunday for the team to bring home the tour’s sprint jersey.
