Tour of Utah: Horner wins at Snowbird over Danielson to take overall lead

Horner equal on time with Danielson but into yellow; Morton crosses four minutes back

Chris HornerChris Horner (Radioshack-Leopard) used the outstanding representation of his Radioshack-Leopard team on the final climb to Snowbird Ski Station, coming around Tom Danielson (Garmin-Sharp) in the final sprint to take the queen stage and the overall lead in the Tour of Utah.

Horner sat on Danielson as the two American climbers worked their way up the final kilometres of the Little Cottonwood climb, coming around inside the final hundred metres to take the stage triumph, and the overall lead as a result of the victory. Previous overall leader Lachlan Morton (Garmin-Sharp) lost over four minutes on the stage after cracking on the climb to Snowbird. This allowed Danielson to play for himself, but Radioshack-Leopard was too strong, and Horner reaped the rewards.

Danielson slots into second overall in the new general classification, equal on time with Horner.

Yannick Eijssen (BMC Racing) hit the Snowbird climb in the lead by himself after being in the daylong break, and held on for third on the stage. George Bennett (Radioshack-Leopard) was fourth and Lucas Euser (UnitedHealthcare) was fifth, and both slot into the top five overall.

Horner is making a return from a knee injury, and the 41-year-old sounded happy to be back.

“I had great doctors looking after me, a lot of guys looking after me. The knee is 100 percent - it’s recovered,” Horner told reporters afterward. “As soon as I knew I was missing the Tour de France, I knew Utah would be my next objective. Honestly, I came in here a little bit under-trained, but with the few days of racing, I was able to get a little more training in and it worked out really good.

“In all honesty, Tommy D was a little bit better than me on the climb, but I had an awesome team and I was able to take the win.”

Horner was asked about his decision to have Danielson do all the work once they had gotten ahead on the final climb. Once they were a duo, Danielson pedaled out all the tempo, while Horner simply sat on.

“It was team tactics. I had three team-mates behind me and we were playing tactics all day. We had Jens jumping, we had Tiago [Machado] jumping, we had George jumping. I had to do a big effort to get up to Tommy D, because I saw that he had dropped George. He was there by himself so I knew I had to go across. It was a huge effort to get across. After that, I’ve got three team-mates behind and I don’t have to pull.

“Hats off to Garmin and Tommy D, they rode a great race.”

How the queen stage played out:

The difficult final climbs were preceded by a difficult first hour-plus of racing, as teams struggled to get representation in the day’s main breakaway. After a short uphill from the flag drop, the first ten kilometres were downhill, and no one got away. Damian Howson (Orica-GreenEdge) and Michel Koch (Cannondale) were the first significant attempt, but it was unsuccessful. Garmin-Sharp were policing for Morton, and their law was strict. After 30km, teams were still trying to find the break, as the hard working Michael Schär (BMC Racing) chilled at the back of the field.

The oft-attacking Marsh Cooper (Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies), Jens Voigt (Radioshack-Leopard), and a Cannondale rider tried to pull out a gap, but Garmin continued to pull everything back. Yesterday’s most aggressive rider, Craig Lewis (Champion System), inspired the next move, but it eventually got too big and failed as well. The peloton began a 10-kilometre drag uphill at the end of the first hour, during which it accomplished over 50 kilometres of racing.

The first escape to get a measureable distance was Cooper, Chris Jones (UnitedHealthcare), Lawson Craddock (Bontrager), and Chris Baldwin (Bissell). But Cannondale, riding short-handed since the start of the race, weren’t happy unless they had representation. Ted King (Cannondale) pulled the rest of the bunch across, and a group of ten split off. With gradients on the short climb topping ten percent, Garmin-Sharp finally shut off.

King, Voigt, Eijssen and Steve Cummings (BMC Racing), Wes Sulzberger (Orica-GreenEdge), Kiel Reijnen (UnitedHealthcare), Michael Torckler (Bissell), Jesse Anthony (Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies), Jim Stemper (5-Hour Energy), and Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly-Kenda) moved to over a minute up the road, and the peloton finally eased back to take on food and water. The Hincapie Development squad got bad news when Robin Carpenter crashed out.

Speeds eased back as break and peloton cruised through the intermediate sprint point in Coalville, with Reijnen taking the line first. The escapees hit the feed zone with 90km to go, and a lead of 2’30”.

It was a long and slow drag up to the category-four Browns Canyon climb, and status quo was maintained for most of it. With 75km to go, the gap was still two and a half minutes. Torckler took longer turns and then came out to add to his total in the KOM classification. With no descent, and just a flat road leading into the category-one Guardmans Pass climb, the peloton started biting into the gap. With 65km left, it was down to 2’40”, as Reijnen rode through again in Park City to take intermediate sprint points.

Park City was situated at the base of the Guardsman Pass climb, which stair-stepped up, with some ramps at 14 percent. Riders began drifting off the back of the main bunch as the Guardsman began. In the escape, Stemper and Anthony were the first to lose ground, followed by King and Reijnen. Up front, Cummings began pounding out a tempo for Eijssen, with Torckler and Tvetcov in their wheels. Voigt hung on briefly before dropping.

With 50km left in the stage, half the Guardsman climb was completed, and the peloton was rapidly down to some 30 riders. Morton had just two team-mates, in Peter Stetina and Danielson. On a steeper ramp, Cummings finished his job and peeled off, and Eijssen upped the pace, dropping Torckler and Tvetcov. The peloton was reported to be at 2’15” as Eijssen sat up and waited for Torckler, who was just behind. It was the most ideal situation for both, as Eijssen could get some help, and Torckler could add further to his KOM lead. This is what happened, as the Bissell rider took the points uncontested.

Meanwhile, the leader’s group was down to a select number of favourites, with Radioshack-Leopard the best represented. Morton had just Danielson left, while Radioshack-Leopard had Horner, Matthew Busche, and Bennett. For BMC, Greg Van Avermaet was dropped, and the American team had just Schär left. Also in the group were Tvetcov, Philip Deignan (UnitedHealthcare), and former Tour of California leader Janier Acevedo (Jamis-Hagens Berman).

For the most part, Eijssen and Torckler stuck together on the long descent, as the Morton group crossed the summit of Guardsman at a minute behind. But Eijssen and Torckler would begin to pull out the gap on the descent. Nearing the bottom, the duo had 2’20” on the leader’s group. Morton had some help come back on the descent in the form of Danielson and Stetina.

The Little Cottonwood climb to the Snowbird ski resort started officially with 10.6km to go, and on the false flats leading in, Torckler gave up the ghost and drifted back. With still more than 7km to go, the 21-year-old Morton realized that it would be too much, and drifted off the back as the main bunch shrunk once again. It wasn’t long before Danielson took up the charge for Garmin, attacking with Bennett, Acevedo, Horner, and Euser.

Seeing that he had been marked, Danielson kicked again, and this time, only Bennett and Acevedo worked their way across. Behind, it was Euser, Deignan, Busche, and Horner in a chasing group. Eijssen was up the road by himself, with a 1’20” buffer on the Danielson group, and 2’15” on the fading Morton. Horner picked his spot to bridge up to Danielson, after Bennett had started to struggle. Danielson settled into his tempo with Horner on his wheel, which would be the theme of the remaining kilometres, as the American duo worked their way up to Eijssen.

They made quick work of the tiring BMC man, moving up to him with still 4km to go. Eijssen accelerated when they were on him, making it known that he wouldn’t be dispatched without a battle. He even put in one more small attack with 3km to the line, but Danielson remained behind him, and Eijssen cracked shortly thereafter. So as Danielson and Horner moved up the road, it was Eijssen fading behind them, with the trio of Euser, Busche, and Bennett operating as the second chase group and Euser doing all the pacing.

With 2km left, Bennett briefly left Euser and Busche, but they would sprint for the line as a threesome. Danielson led Horner under the one kilometre kite, and the road flattened out at the entrance to the ski resort.

Horner came from the slipstream of the Garmin rider in sight of the line, scoring one for the old guys, and giving Radioshack-Leopard control with one stage left.

The Tour of Utah concludes on Sunday with a 125km stage that starts and finishes in Park City. But the climbing isn’t over yet, so there is likely to be another battle between the two Americans for the final victory.
