Univest Grand Prix - UCI 1.2 
The 2005 edition upheld it's reputation of providing an especially selective race with an elite field of riders from France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, Poland, Uraguay, Dominican Republic, Canada, and the United States. The challenging course is a true test of endurance and strength, and as such it was no suprise that Louis Garneau strongman, Dan Greenfield was one of the last men standing.
Again, Louis Garneau demonstrated the depth of the team as Alec Donahue raced the first cyclocross race of the season, which took place over the weekend in Northfield, MA. He road to a respectable 4th place.
In addition, the King brothers road to a 1st and 4th place finish at the Portsmouth Criterium over the weekend.

Topsfield Circuit Race & Bear Mtn Road Race 
The penultimate weekend of '05 racing featured the Topsfield Circuit Race in Massachusetts on Saturday and the Bear Mtn Road Race in Harriman State Park, NY on Sunday. Robbie King, Dan Greenfield, and Damon Parke got it started for Louis Garneau at Topsfield as they put 2 in the top 10 with Robbie leading the team in 2nd place. The following day at Bear Mtn also featured 2 LG's in the top 10 as Dan Greenfield lead the team to a 3rd place top finish.

Bear Mtn Results:

Univest Grand Prix is the official final event of the season for Louis Garneau Racing, although several riders will continue to represent LG at various mtn bike and cyclocross events through the fall/winter, and it promises to be BIG one. With a strong international field, including the recently crowned German National champion, and a solid representation of American Continental and Elite Amateur teams, LG will certainly have its work cut out for them. But that is exactly what our squad of Jason Baer, Dan Cassidy, Josh Dillon, Dan Greenfield, and Damon Parke are looking for to close out the season on a high note.

Green Mountain Stage Race 
This past weekend, Louis Garneau enjoyed racing in their home state of VT and looked to capitalize on courses that incorporated many of their favorite training roads and climbs. Before the racing even began LG was going for the win as former Tour de France professional and favorite son, Andy Bishop, came out of retirement to represent the home team. While the prologue's point total doesn't factor significantly into the final GC, the results confirmed LG's depth with Dan Cassidy leading LG to 5 spots in the top 20. Day 2, official Stage 1, was a 72.5 mile circuit race featuring two KOM's and 1 Sprint in addition to the points up for grab at the finish. Louis Garneau dominated the front of the race from the gun, driving the average speed near 30 mph on the day. The Green Train helped deliver Joe Moody and Robbie King to KOM and sprint 2nd place points, respectively, which would position them well for Stage 2 and 3 where more points were up for grab. In addition Damon Parke led 3 into the top 10 on the finish line for LG. (Unfortunately, the flagrant violations of the yellow line rule by the entire field lead to the nullification of the Stage results, and in addition several individual riders were assessed severe point reduction penalties including our top GC rider) Stage 2 was the Mad River Road Race, a 103 mile course with 3 major climbs and a mtn top finish. LG went on the offensive again from the gun, with Robbie King and Jason Baer driving a 7 man breakaway. They stayed clear through the first sprint and KOM, with Robbie taking 2nd and 1st respectively. Upon rejoining with the field, Joe Moody, soloed away in search of the next KOM which he took and continued on gunning for the win. Several teams worked together to pull Joe in by the base of the Appalachain Gap. On the lower slopes of App. Gap Andy Bishop put in several big attacks, that setup Dan Greenfield to counter off solo and build a 1:15 lead with 5k to go. Again several teams had to work together to pull back LG, and were nearly unsuccessful at doing so as Dan was caught with under 500 meters. Another near miss for LG. On the final stage of the weekend, the downtown Burlington Criterium, Louis Garneau pushed the pace from the start to try to setup Josh Dillon and makeup the 3 spots on the General Classification. The plan was nearly successful as he was able to slip away just after halfway mark. Unfortunately he was picked up with just 3k to go, but Robbie King represented LG in the field sprint for their highest place on the stage. At the end of the weekend Louis Garneau was 2nd and 3rd on the KOM, 2nd on the sprint competition, and had 2 in the top ten for overall.

Mt Snow NORBA update 
Joe Moody and Josh Dillon traded the racing slicks for nobby tires this past weekend as the NORBA National Mtn Bike Series came to New England. Mt Snow is an annual stop on the tour, and is renowned for its technical terrain and lengthy climbs. Joe Moody led LG at the event taking 2nd place in the Expert Cross-Country Event.
Win at Saco Bay 
Dan Greenfield and Robbie King owned a majority of the spots on the podium at this year's running of the Saco Bay Criterium. Robbie took the top honors of the day off of a strong leadout from Dan Greenfield as the two decimated the remnants of the early 9-man breakaway.

Tour of the Hilltowns - Dillon 3rd 
Louis Garneau put 3 in the top 10 at the Tour of the Hilltowns this past weekend in Windsor, MA. The challenging course featured a 3 mile climb, at the 60 mile mark of the 95 mile race, that sufficiently split the field up. LG had 3 riders in the front group over the climb, and was able to put Josh Dillon on the podium.
Mt. Washington Hill Climb - Cassidy 8th 
Dan Cassidy rode his way to a respectable top 10 finish in this year's running of the epic ascent of Mt. Washington. Dan had to contend with mtb legend, Ned Overend, as well as Tour de France rider, Tyler Hamilton, among the over 600 contestents.

Dan Cassidy crushed the competition at the hilly Albany RR, a tough course that set up a 50 mile break away win for him. LG dominated the race with riders in each break, until Dan's stuck for good. In addition, LG put 2 other riders in the top 10 for the finish.

Louis Garneau Classique 
This past weekend featured a big event on the racing calendar for our team, the 270 kilometer Louis Garneau Classique; a race that took us from the Olympic Center in Montreal to LG headquarters outside Quebec City this past Sunday. To warm up for the big jaunt, Friday night featured a 50 km criterium in Magog, Quebec. Robbie King lead the troops for LG with a 5th place finish. Unfortunately, a couple of key riders were taken out early in the race by a crash caused by a poorly placed barrier. So for the main event on Sunday, there were 220 starters featuring a former Canadian National Champion as well as numerous Pro teams. However, an improbable early breakaway manage to stay clear to the finish leaving the favourites to fight it out for 10th place. Our top finisher was only 14th, but we placed 3 in the top 30 as the best represented team. Also, special mention goes out to Damon Parke who was the super domestique of the day. Often seen carrying as many as 7 bottles to other teammates throughout the race, a critical role with such a long day in the saddle. Damon finished the race as well, respectably in the middle of the pack.
