- A neighbor told me about his friend's "Trail-Gator" system which allows you to sort of convert a regular kid's bike into a trail-a-bike sort of thing. Anybody got any first hand experience with this? My four year old loves to go on bike rides, but after four or five miles (paved bike trail out here in Wildwood or the levee trail), he's done. Thought this sounded cool so that I could then just hook it up to my bike and ride for a longer time.
Appreciate any feedback. Thanks....Chris
MENOMONIE, Wis. (VN) — Travis McCabe (Elbowz Racing-Boneshaker Project) out-kicked Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly-Kenda) for his first NRC victory in stage 5 of the Nature Valley Grand Prix on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Lauren Stephens (Tibco-To the Top) likewise notched her first NRC win, attacking the women’s field and rolling solo across the line to win the Menomonie Road Race.
McCabe had been part of a seven-man break that split from the field 10 miles into the 101-mile men’s race. The peloton retrieved the escapees shortly before entering Menomonie, but McCabe attacked again, taking several riders with him, including St. Paul time-trial winner Tvetcov.
McCabe outsprinted Tvetcov in the final stretch; Guido Palma (Jamis-Hagen Berman) rounded out the podium in third.
Michael Friedman (Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies) retained the leader’s yellow jersey.
In the 82.3-mile women’s race Stephens jumped the field before the race entered the final circuits. Stephens, a high school math teacher, added up a one-minute lead before crossing the line solo.
Teammate Shelley Olds won the field sprint, followed by Kimberly Wells (Colavita-Fine Cooking.) Olds also gained precious seconds with her sprint finish, putting her within one second of overall leader Jade Wilcoxson (Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies).
The NVGP concludes Sunday with the Stillwater Criterium. The 1.4-mile course is a lumpy affair, with a trip up Chilkoot Hill every lap; men race 20 laps while women tackle 13.

- A big thank you to Mark Grumke and crew. Leadbelt has always been one of my favorites races and the throw down that Mark put together today set the bar even higher. Cool venue, awesome trails with some really cool new sections added,swag galore and the hand crafted plagues were really a nice touch.
After the race I had to stop by the urgent care center to have the big smile on my face surgically removed.
All the best in everything you do!
Marc De Maar (UnitedHealthcare) sprinted to victory on Sunday in stage 5 of the Tour de Beauce.
De Maar out-kicked Antoine Duchesne (Bontrager) and Oscar Clark (Hincapie Sportswear Development) to win the 126km Ville de Québec circuit race.
Francisco Mancebo (5-Hour Energy-Kenda) finished seventh on the day to retain the overall lead.
De Maar got into the day’s break, and having raced here twice before he knew what to expect.
“The original plan was to put some pressure on Mancebo and his team. The only way to do it was to put our GC guys on the attack,” said De Maar.
“I was in the break, which worked out pretty well for me. I kept on going, and my director came and told me to go for the win.
“It’s a beautiful city. I’ve won here before; this is the second time. I always like to come here. There are lots of crowds out there, and the ambiance is very nice. Perhaps I should buy an apartment here for next year.”
Mancebo said he hoped to carry the jersey through Sunday’s finale on an urban circuit in Ville de St-Georges.
“The team worked really well for me today,” he said. “The Canadian team attacked a lot again today. Tomorrow will be the same, everybody will attack, and it will be tough once more to keep the jersey.
“If I race tomorrow like I did today, I am confident for the stage. Teamwork will once again be critical to keep the jersey tomorrow.”
With only the 107km Ville de St-Georges stage remaining Mancebo leads Nathan Brown ((Bontrager) by just five seconds on the overall with Matthew Cooke (Century Road Club) third at eight seconds.
