Lockwood pulls back over a minute to win Redlands Bicycle Classic

Simmons wins stage, Hagens Berman Axeon miss move after crash

Semper Porro's Cory Lockwood pulled back an overnight deficit of over a minute to race leader Kevin Vermaerke (Hagens Berman Axeon) to win the overall classification of the Redlands Bicycle Classic on Sunday.

Knowing that he needed to take back so much time, Lockwood went on the attack early, joining up with eventual stage winner Quinn Simmons (Landis Cyclery/Trek Team), with Vermaerke eventually trailing home 2:28 behind in 18th place, leaving Lockwood to take the title by 1:25, with Eder Frayre (Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling) third overall, another 24 seconds back.

“It’s fantastic,” Lockwood said. “I’ve been doing this race for quite a few years now. Specifically this race, I remember Paul Abrahams (KHS Elevate Director) telling me, ‘someday you’ll win this race,’ but then I remember coming out here getting lapped and crashing and this and that, 40th place, but I just kept working at it. It ended up coming around today. It came around on the last day, it’s pretty exciting.”

Overnight race leader Vermaeke was left with just one teammate after an early crash took out Sean Quinn and Thomas Revard, and no team could take control of the bunch.

Lockwood, 1:08 down on Vermaerke at the start of the stage, and Simmons, more than five minutes down, in contrast had a solid agreement. They worked together to edge their cap out to two minutes. Simmons could take the stage and Lockwood the GC, if only they could hold that.

"I worked until Cory got the time gap he needed. I just needed enough time to make it to the finish. I agreed to help him until we got a gap and then it was my job to sit on and wait until the finish," Simmons said.

A counter-attack went on the finishing circuits, with Alexander Cowan (Floyd's Pro Cycling) taking out the sprint for third.

“The race was all over the place, especially with losing Axeon no one really knew what to do,” Cowan said. “DC Bank was on the front for some reason and then it went to doo doo. Everyone started attacking and then some bridges started happening.”

Vermaerke held on for second overall with Eder Frayre (Elevate KHS) in third.

“No one really wanted to take control so there were a lot of people attacking and Corey went up the road, there were other people in a position to work in order to save their positions on GC but nobody wanted to work,” Vermaerke said.

“We were in a tough position, the break was working well together, but no one wanted to do the work back in the main field and the gap opened up, and it was just a tough day. It’s a hard course so there’s nowhere really to recover, a very hard day.”
