Tour of Utah: Danielson wins the overall with Empire Pass attack

Mancebo takes the stage, Horner distanced early on final climb

Tom DanielsonAfter entering the final stage of the Tour of Utah tied on time with Chris Horner (Radioshack-Leopard), Tom Danielson (Garmin-Sharp) came home the winner in Park City after attacking Horner at the beginning of the final climb and riding away. The steep ascent of Empire Pass spelled doom for Horner and Radioshack-Leopard, and it was Danielson, Francisco Mancebo (5-Hour Energy) and Janier Acevedo (Jamis-Hagens Berman) who fought for the stage victory in Park City.

Danielson had attacked the yellow jersey after Garmin-Sharp team-mate Peter Stetina decimated the field. The eventual overall winner got an immediate gap, and began riding through the remnants of a 15-man breakaway. Danielson made it through everyone, with Mancebo being the last man caught from the escape.

But an 8.5km descent into town allowed Mancebo to come back, as did Acevedo, within a kilometre of the finish. Danielson had over a minute of advantage over Horner, and knew that the overall victory was his. He pedaled safely home and allowed the two Spanish speakers to battle for stage victory.

Mancebo had the better sprint, and the 2009 Tour of Utah champ took the stage.

Speaking with reporters afterward, Danielson ranked the race win as the best of his career. He spent earlier portions of the six-day event working for team-mate Lachlan Morton, when the young Australian had the overall lead.

With Horner still coming back to form after a knee injury, Danielson said he felt good enough to be confident as the climb of Empire Pass began.

“I think at the bottom of the climb [I’d knew I’d win]. I owe it to my team,” Danielson smiled afterward. I’ve been wanting to do this for years. They worked for me and believed in me, and it’s for my team.

“I was at the Tour de France this year and got injured early, and I was just riding around and I thought, ‘man, I worked so hard this year. I’m in such great form but I’m just not doing it.’ But I’ve been in Tucson [Arizona] training there and it just clicked for me. This isn’t the easiest stage to win. I talked to Levi [Leipheimer] and I told him I was going to do what he did last year. I took it really cautious on the descent because I knew I had a minute-forty on Chris, and it was just amazing.”

Horner finished the stage 1’28” behind Danielson and hung onto second place overall. Acevedo’s final charge pushed him onto the final podium place, finishing 18 seconds ahead of Lucas Euser (UnitedHealthcare) in the overall.

One final stage to separate Horner and Danielson:

The first 55 kilometres out of Park City were flat, and as opposed to Saturday, when it took more than an hour to establish a breakaway, a group of riders was granted room right away to begin stage six. It was a sizeable escape, and it looked as if it might fail when a few too many riders came across, but several men dropped back and 12 riders took half a minute.

Francisco Mancebo (5-Hour Energy), Tyler Wren and Luis Romero (Jamis-Hagens Berman), Jakub Novak (BMC Racing), Alex Hagman (Jelly Belly-Kenda), Ted King (Cannondale), Tanner Putt and Jasper Stuyven (Bontrager), Baden Cooke (Orica-GreenEdge), Jason McCartney (Bissell), Martin Wesemann (MTN-Qhubeka), and Kiel Reijnen (UnitedHealthcare) were the riders to get a gap, but they would soon be joined by others.

The Hincapie Development squad sprung a move with three riders out of the peloton, looking to place a rider or two in the breakaway. But importantly, Orica-GreenEdge’s Michael Matthews, winner of two stages in the race, tucked himself in with the Hincapie riders.

The day began with only three points separating sprints classification leader Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing) and Matthews. With the HC Empire Pass climb situated near the end, there would be no sprint points taken by either at the finish line, meaning that the two intermediate sprint checks could factor in more heavily. Hincapie had Joey Rosskopf, Tyler Magner, and Joe Lewis, but Matthews was also doing his fair share of the work to get the quartet across. With the escape in sight, Magner hand slung a team-mate across and dropped back, and the break grew by three riders.

Consequently, BMC were mustering the troops on the front of the main bunch. Their deficit was around 40 seconds, and with Van Avermaet taking regular turns of his own, they cut into the lead. With five kilometres to the sprint point, the gap was 20 seconds, and the chase was on. But the escapees kept working, and BMC didn’t have enough riders to help Van Avermaet behind, so the focus turned to Novak in the break. With 700 metres to the line, Matthews took off to secure the five available points. But Novak came from the back and rode up to the Australian, and the duo played cat and mouse for a quarter-mile. Matthews led out to the line, but the pure sprinter had plenty to outlast Novak and take the lead in the points classification, two clear of Van Avermaet.

With that, the fireworks show was temporarily over, and the peloton drifted back, to 2’20” behind the break. But with the early action, the bunch had covered over 45 kilometres in the first hour.

With 70km to go, the climb of Wolf Creek Ranches, ranked category two, kicked up for five steep kilometres. The peloton had gotten back to 3’10 behind, and as the break hit the climb, Mancebo moved up, and McCartney came across. More riders came back so Mancebo kicked again, this time going forward by himself and building a 30-second lead. The Spaniard led over the top with the half minute buffer, as Radioshack-Leopard came over the top 2’50” behind. It was ten more kilometres of shallow climbing that riders had to tackle before heading downhill, toward the second sprint point of the day in Midway. It was on this section that Mancebo came back to his original escape.

Coming off the long descent with 35km to go, the gap held at 3’15”. Matthews finished off the sprint classification with maximum points in Midway, and the break still had over three minutes as the vaunted Empire Pass began. Mancebo accelerated again to pull the better climbers – plus Matthews – into a smaller group.

This new leading group was soon down to three, with just Mancebo, Matthews, and King. The Cannondale rider fell back as well, and Matthews, perhaps buoyed by his points jersey assault, showed off his climbing legs early. ‘Bling’ went up the road by himself, while behind, Stetina was the only rider left for Danielson.

But Stetina gave all that was needed and then some, reducing the leader’s group to five on the lower slopes of the climb, and then four once Euser dropped. As Stetina pulled off, it was just Danielson, Horner and Busche together. Danielson accelerated and immediately got a gap on his rival, and Busche came around Horner and settled in to begin pacing him. The gap to the leading riders fell quickly, as Danielson clawed to within a minute of Matthews up the road. Mancebo continued to dangle behind the Australian, never completely dropped, as Danielson picked his way through the escapees who were drifting back.

With 15km left in the stage, Danielson had halved his deficit to 30 seconds, and Mancebo caught back up to Matthews, the steeper pitches of the climb beginning to be too much for the sprinter. In the yellow jersey group, Philip Deignan (UnitedHealthcare) hitched himself to the back of Horner, and his team-mate Euser would do the same a bit later. At the front, Mancebo was dropping Matthews this time, shortly before Danielson bridged up to the Orica-GreenEdge rider.

Upon hearing news that he had more than a minute between himself and Horner, Danielson sprung forward again, this time up to Mancebo. It wasn’t long before the American left the veteran Spaniard behind, as the gradient smoothed out toward the top of the climb. Danielson crested it with still over a minute on the Horner group, which by this time was four men with the addition of Euser. Just the 8km descent into Park City remained for Danielson, who simply had to keep the wheels moving and upright. Horner hit the top nearly 90 seconds later.

With 4km to go to the finish, Mancebo pedaled a big gear onto the wheel of Danielson, and the two set off together with speeds nearing 100kph. With the one kilometre kite visible in the distance, Acevedo merged with Mancebo and Danielson, after being invisible for the entirety of the Empire Pass climb.

Danielson let his two counterparts take the lead toward the finish, content with his stage race victory, and Mancebo took Acevedo on the line.
