Tour of Utah, Stage 1: Two In The Chase

10. agosto 2011

Ogden, Utah

Jeff Louder and George Hincapie represented the BMC Racing Team in the chase to catch five riders who escaped on the final climb and run-in into Ogden Wednesday at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

Long Week Ahead

Jesse Anthony (Kelly Benefit Strategies-OptumHealth) won the sprint from the small group that included overall race leader Sergio Henao (Gobernacion de Antioguia-Indeportes Antiquia and defending Tour of Utah champion Levi Leipheimer. Louder and Hincapie finished with 30 others, 2:35 after the front five. "I was a little surprised with how hard they attacked and rode it down to a really select group," Louder said. BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Michael Sayers said: "We did exactly what we wanted to do, we didn't use too much energy and ultimately Garmin and HTC couldn't bring it back. It's the beginning of a long week. I have confidence in Jeff. He looks good. The other guys are going to get better as the week goes on."
