FELIPE BASTOS TAKES ALABAMA STATE GAMES TITLE

Brazilian professional triathlete Felipe Bastos claimed his second win of the season – and first ever State Games title – in Alpine, AL, the Triathlon host city for the 2008 Alabama Games. The win, in a record setting time of 59:03, marked Bastos’ 29th overall career win. “I pushed my body the entire time – I really wanted the State Games title,” said Bastos.

The result came just one week after Bastos’ 2nd place at the Buster Britton Triathlon, an event that saw 14 seconds separate the winner from second place. “Last week came up 14 second short of the win, and I did not want it happening again today,” said Bastos when explaining his performance over the 400yd/25k/5k distances. Bastos led the race wire to wire and recorded the first sub hour performance on the hilly race course.

BASTOS 2nd AT ROCK%ROLL SOUTHEAST LONG COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP

Macon, Ga., Brazilian professional triathlete Felipe Bastos claimed 2nd place at the Southeast Long Course Championships with a 4:25:55 finish in the 1.2 mile swim lake swim, 56 mile bike ride and 13.1 mile run through the rolling hills of Georgia’s Bibb County.

This marks Bastos’ best finish at the Southeast long Course Championships after coming in 3rd place for the past three years. “Even though I was clearly still tired from the effort I put in at the TriAmerica event last weekend, I was able to exit the water in first place, and lead the race for the first hour. At that point I was overtaken by the three year reigning champion and eventual winner of this year’s Rock ‘N RollMan”, said Bastos.

The race, held each year on the same weekend, is known across the country as one of the toughest courses around. The challenge of the distance, the hills on the bike course and the very, very hot run course always make for an interesting race. Bastos added: “I really wanted to improve on the 3rd place finish I have had for past few years, so I decided to race smart, save some energy on the bike, and attack on the run. I ended up riding faster than last year, but still ended up with a great run.”

FELIPE BASTOS TAKES TRIAMERICA NATIONAL TRIATHLON SERIES – NEW ORLEANS

Mandeville, LA, Brazilian professional triathlete Felipe Bastos scorched the New Orleans’s north shore to celebrate his 28th career overall win in the second stop of the 2k/60k/15k National Triathlon Serious Tour.

The race, held during Memorial Day weekend, was Bastos’ last hit out before the Southeast Long Course Championships at the Rock & RollMan. His win, in 3:00:42 was good enough for the course record and best time in all 3 disciplines on the day. “Even though I was on the led all day, I wanted to keep pushing it to the end to test my body in the 90F heat”.

Powering the bike after exiting the water with a 4-minute lead on the swim, Bastos’ 1:29 bike ride split, combined with a sub 1 hour run (58:31), and was good enough for a 28-minute win. “I felt great all day, and tried hard to break the 3-hour mark, which has never been done on the TriAmerica Series. In the end, I came up a few seconds short, but I will be back to try again.

Bastos, an entering Law student at the University of Alabama, will also be attending the Macon, Ga’s Southeast Long Course Championships on May 31, as well as the Lawrence, Kansas Ironman 70.3, a qualifying event for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.

WORLD CHAMPION GIVES RAVE REVIEWS FOR THE VELLUM EDGE

Jonathan Hall, the 1997 World Duathlon Champion and 4-time Australian Road Cycling Champion recently reviewed the Vellum Edge for the Australian Triathlete Magazine.

To review and test every bike for Australian Traithlete, the former Tour de France rider does Five Hundred kilometers of solid riding over various terrains using a standardized process.

“Vellum stands out as something you will be proud to ride and will turn heads on the road. The bike¹s feel is very smooth. To get on a new bike and be comfortable enough to get straight into this type of work is a rarity, but the Vellum was super stiff under load and responsive to accelerations on the climbs. What goes up must come down and the Edge was great on the winding descent. I was able to hold great lines at speed and at no stage did the bike shudder or wobble under brakes.”

Areté/Vellum rider Shaun Harless earned the overall points leader title for two days by repeatedly finishing on the podium step.
“I felt confident and had good legs throughout the week and am especially pleased with my ride at Holy Hill.”
SHAUN HARLESS

Shaun placed second in the Tour of Holy Hill Road Race that presented a challenging course with very windy conditions.

EMC2/VELLUM CYCLES’ NATHAN PARKS WINS STAGE 4 OF 2006 CASCADE CYCLING CLASSIC.

NATHAN PARKS of EMC²/VELLUM CYCLES recently won Stage 4 of the CASCADE CYCLING CLASSIC at Bend, Oregon in dramatic fashion on a 4 man breakaway. With the strong field that included CHRIS WALKER, KIRK WILLET and STEVE LARSEN (winner of the first 3 stages), Parks knew an extra effort would be needed to win this race.
The fast pace field was intact most of the way heading up to the second lap KOM and into the following rollers. As the bunch slowed up a notch, Nathan Parks immediately launched his attack with only 1 other rider joining him. As he tried to grow the lead at the next hill, Parks found himself riding alone in front with a minute on the field. He eventually decided to slow down and wait as he noticed 3 riders bridging the gap. The chase was composed of Walker, Canfield and Pasco. Once contacted, the 4 riders build up their lead to 2:50 minutes from the field as they hit the final climb at 7k to go. Walker’s push suddenly dropped Canfield and had the break to just three riders left with Parks and Pasco watching every move as they crawled the last 3 kilometers. Coming into the finish, Parks was second wheel as Pasco attacked from the back. He darted across the road with Parks slotted in behind and Walker chasing. Parks suddenly grabbed some gear and hit it with about 30 meters to go and that was it…
“I was very happy I did a good ride. A stage at Cascade is a great place for a win.”
NATHAN PARKS

His win was highly supported by the team as they stayed intact in the main peleton and killed all attempts to chase the breakaway group. “We were all worker bees today to make sure Nathan was supported and protected.” – JOE OLIVERIO, Team Captain, EMC²/Vellum Cycles. The victory had Vellum Cycles USA head, FRANK GATDULA ecstatic as he now is aiming for the Supereek 2007 and the U.S. National Championships next year.
