2011 BC Superweek

Three-time Canadian Olympian returns to $65,000 BC Superweek

~ Eric Wohlberg back racing at age 46 and ready to take on next generation of Canadian cycling stars

Last year, Eric Wohlberg returned to the BC Superweek races he used to dominate as a Team Director with the BISSELL Pro Cycling squad.

He’s back this year to race at age 46, but don’t let the birth certificate fool you.

The three-time Canadian Olympian always has to be taken seriously.

“I’ll definitely be the old fart out there, but they know I’m not done yet,” Wohlberg, an Ontario native originally, said over the phone from his new home base in Palo Alto, California. “I’ve still got a fair bit of fight in me and they know that.”

Most Canadian cyclists know all about Wohlberg. In addition to his three straight Olympic experiences, he won gold medals in the Time Trial at the 1998 Commonwealth Games and 1999 Pan Am Games, a bronze in the Road Race at the at the Commonwealth Games, and was on seven Canadian entries at the World Championships. He has posted 76 stage and overall victories at major US races, and eight straight Canadian Time Trial Championships, a streak Svein Tuft, a former teammate on the now defunct Symmetrics Pro Cycling team that used to be based in Langley, is closing in on with a seventh win last week.

Wohlberg also played a big role at BC Superweek, in large part by dominating the Tour de Delta as a member of the prestigious American based Saturn Cycling Team back in 2003, when he also earned his second Canadian Male Cylist of the Year award. His supremacy inspired the creation of Symmetrics to help local riders get organized to compete with the big American teams coming north to BC Sueprweek, and before long the locals were on the podium.

Riders like Tuft, Ryan Anderson and Will Routley (all SpiderTech), Christian Meier and Andrew Pinfold (United Health Care) all converted success at BC Superweek into jobs racing professionally – first in North America, and now in Europe. Others like Marsh Cooper (Kelly Benefits), Nic Spaling (Jelly Belly) and Rob Britton (BISSELL) all followed in their path to top American based teams.

Wohlberg continued to support the race as a director at BISSELL, sending riders north every year and using BC Superweek to identify emerging talent.

“I remember one year Zach Bell smoked everyone in the Delta Hillclimb, and I was like `who the hell is this guy?’ We all know him now,” Wohlberg said of the Canadian Olympian, who also won the Tour de Delta Road Race just last year. “Any rider who does well in a BC Superweek field warrants a serious look.”

Wohlberg, who never really stopped riding or racing even while still doing some consulting work with Kelly Benefits, will get an up-close and personal look when he comes back with another young rider from Form Fitness, a small Northern California-based team made up mostly of Masters riders like himself, but with some younger Cat 1, 2, and 3 riders as well.

“I’m not 100 per cent racing. I haven’t trained quite as hard as I’d like to, but I’m still going to give it a go and try to be factor in some of the races up there,” Wohlberg said. “I’m looking forward to Tour de Delta and the UBC and Burnaby Crits. I’m not 100 per cent confident about that Road Race in White Rock – that thing is so, so hard – but I’ve got good hopes coming up to BC Superweek so you never know.”

With Wohlberg, the rest of the cyclists will know to watch out, even at age 46.

-30-

BC Superweek starts with three races at the Tour de Delta from July 8 to 10. Racing continues with the inaugural UBC Grand Prix on Tuesday, July 12, and the return of the Giro di Burnaby on Thursday, July 14, before wrapping up with three more races at the historic Tour de White Rock from July 15 through 17.

2011 BC Superweek

Chaddock turns BC Superweek Win into Pro Cycling Contract

~ Whistler native returns this weekend with impressive Team Exergy

Ben Chaddock doesn’t hesitate when asked what last year’s win at the 2010 Tour de Delta Prologue meant to his career as a professional cyclist.

“That was definitely the race that put me on the map,” Chaddock said.

No wonder. Chaddock knocked off Canadian Olympian and seven-time National Time Trial champion Svein Tuft, who was riding on a European-based Pro Tour squad at the time, by blazing around the 3.2-kilometer course in three minutes and 46.52 seconds. His surprising win caught the eye of Team Exergy director Tad Hamilton, who signed Chaddock up in October for his first NRC season.

Now, after surviving broken ribs in January and some early season struggles in his first full pro season, Chaddock returns to BC Superweek full of confidence after winning the final sprint and finishing third overall at the recent Canadian Criterium Championships. And he’s bringing an impressive team with him.

Among eight Exergy riders expected to join Chaddock when BC Superweek kicks off with the Tour de Delta Friday are Columbia’s Carlos Alzate, a former Pan-American champion and 2008 Olympian, and “Fast” Freddy Rodriguez, a three-time US Road Champion who also won a stage at the Giro d’Italia in 2004.

“We’re going to crush it,” said Chaddock, who is back in Whistler, where he was an FIS Alpine Skier for six years growing up before going to Whitman College in Washington State, switching to cycling and winning two Collegiate team titles.

“Team Exergy really wanted to support me in my home race. One of the goals is to get a win for every single rider on the team and maybe this is mine; a reward for some of the sacrifices I made for other guys earlier in the season.”

Chaddock made it clear he’s not counting on being the focal point for Exergy, and will be just as happy to keep providing support for his teammates.

Either way, they will all have plenty of support at BC Superweek.

In addition to friends and family, he has a sponsorship deal with Muscle Memory Personal and Group Training in TSawwassen, and they have set up three tents at Saturday’s Criterium in Ladner to cheer on Chaddock and Team Exergy, and raffle off one of his jerseys to raise money for youth at the Delta Rotary Club.

“My family will be there, and a lot of people who followed me when I was ski racing,” said Chaddock. “All the physiotherapists and chiropractors that have seen me since I was 15, my old math teacher, all those types of people.

“I’ll be ready to go, that’s for sure.”

Chaddock also put himself on the radar of the Canadian track team with a strong performance at nationals last August, finishing top-5 in every event he entered on his first time racing track, and may train with them in Los Angeles this fall. For now, though, he’s focused on a strong finish to the road-racing season.

It certainly didn’t start the way Chaddock had hoped.

After breaking ribs go-carting in January (“stupid of me”), he hit a rough patch at an Exergy training camp mid-February that continued through March, and didn’t feel like he was really contributing to his new team. Then, on his 26th birthday, they gave him a Volvo, and told him to get it to Greenville, SC in six weeks, with scheduled stops for altitude training camos and smaller races along the way. By the time he rejoined the main squad for Speedweek, he felt a lot better.

“It really helped me get into form and at Speedweek we raced six criteriums in eight days and my form continued to get better every day from the altitude training and I was able to learn something every night and apply it immediately the next night, which is huge,” he said. “I’m brand new, trying to figure out how to help my team leader, Carlos Alzate, and by the end I was able to contribute.

“It wasn’t until those last couple of days I finally felt like a professional cyclist.”

Stuck on the east coast during a team break shortly after, Chaddock managed to finish third at the two-day Wilmington Grand Prix in Delaware a short while later.

“It was my first NRC podium and I was essentially riding with no support against teams from Jelly Belly, United Healthcare and Kelly Benefits with like three to five guys,” he said. “It showed my team that I can do it and I’ve learned to position myself and it was a huge confidence booster for me, my first pro podium.”

Rodriguez joined team for the Philadelphia International Championship in June, and Chaddock was tasked with delivering him to the stretch run, helping a strong Exergy showing in the televised race and finishing the 250-km race himself.

From there it was off to the Canadian National Championships, where he passed David Veilleux on the final sprint but finished two points behind the European based pro rider in the overall standings, and third overall in Canada.

Now it’s back to BC Superweek, For Chaddock, it’s where it all started.
