Consecutive Wins for Athlete Octane; Fearless Femme Pic Stands Tallest


Sheer power dominated Day 2 of the Tour of America’s Dairyland presented by Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. In between raindrops falling prior to the day’s first race and resuming post-Pro Men podium, racers throughout the day exhibited true grit and determination ‘til the Finish. Whether or not $4,500 in primes served as a motivator, spectators were treated to a solid day of athletics.

Laura Jorgensen (Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers) made the quaint railroad town of East Troy, Wisconsin, take notice but making a solo break early on for a handful of laps before the field reunited. A $95 cash prime picked up by Christy Keely (Pepper Palace) was but a glimpse of payouts to come. Mandy Heintz (Fearless Femme pb Pure Energy Cycling) launched a solo break with 13 laps to go. Peeling away, Pepper Palace and ISCorp-Intelligentsia began a short-lived challenge as the gap for Heintz grew to 10 seconds.

Nearly seeing victory before her, Heintz vision was soon blurred as a $1,000 prime courtesy of the Dennis & Janice Klumb Family Foundation was launched out with 5 to go. Erica Allar (Colavita Fine Cooking) took Jorgensen teammate Laura Van Gilder to the line then kept on going to the bank to unload her pocket full of cash.

Conserving energy, Pepper Palace hung back and dialed in their strategy at the front of the field, ready to execute. But in the end, it was Tina Pic (Fearless Femme) who threw her experience down the finishing stretch and across the line for the beautiful win. Pic also took over the Boston Store/Younkers Pink Pro Women’s Leaders’ Jersey from Allar, foreshadowing the intense competition that lies ahead. TIBCO-To The Top teammates Kendall Ryan and Samantha Schneider landed on the second and third steps, respectively. Schneider’s team and sister Skylar went home in the Green Oarsman Capital Cat 2 Amateur Leaders Jersey.

The Pro Men’s train out of the gate was charging hard, tickling speeds of 30 mph consistently throughout the 90-minute contest. Countless breakaway attempts were made, and while it made for an entertaining race, nothing stuck, no matter how hard Alexander Ray (Hincapie Development Team) and James Stemper (5-Hour Energy-Kenda) grimaced. The deck just kept shuffling. Mullervy (Champion System-Stan’s No Tubes), Anthony Canevari (Athlete Octane), Matt Moosa (Stan’s No Tubes-Proferrin) among many others…shuffle, shuffle, shuffle.

Midway through, the primes started to tease and the tempo started to slow as Hagens Berman U-23 and Airgas Cycling scooped up some pocket change. And then Adam Myerson (Smart Stop-Mountain Khakis) got paid large, grabbing a $700 Klumb Family prime. The field continued to spin after that jolt, and failed to organize until 15 laps remaining as Drew Christopher (Chamption System) sailed seven seconds up the road. And then the regatta begin. Ten laps to go, a cool grand landed in the lap of Griffin Easter (Airgas) who kept on cranking after securing the prime.

The final 10 laps of the race made the first 75 minutes seem like a group ride. Easter, in control, encountered some uninvited guests in Andrew Hammond (Palmer Cycling) and Andrew Dahlheim (Athlete Octane). Easter logged the best effort of the day but the sprint to the finish went to Dahlheim, as a follow-up to teammate Daniel Holloway’s victory last evening in Shorewood. Holloway and Owens Gillott (Hagen Berman) rounded out the podium in second and third, respectively. The sunset on the horizon was actually Holloway riding away in the Yellow Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board Overall Leader Jersey. Christopher Hill (KS Energy-Team Wisconsin) stepped into the Oarsman Capital Cat 2 Amateur Jersey.
