Broderick and Barclay win enduro stage 3 at Trans-Sylvania Epic

Mike Broderick (Kenda NoTubes) and Vicki Barclay (NoTubes Elite Women's Team) won the enduro stage 3 at the Trans-Sylvania Epic on Tuesday. With the change in format for the third day, some different riders visited the podium as the GC favorites mostly focused on protecting their overall standings.

At the end of the day, Jeremiah Bishop (Sho-Air/Cannondale) and Cheryl Sornson (Rare Diseases Cycling) both kept their yellow leaders' jerseys.


Mike Broderick won the day's stage, which was comprised of five separate timed enduro segments. Broderick claimed his victory ahead of last year's overall race winner Justin Lindine (Redline/NBX) and local Madison Matthews (Toasted Head Racing).

"More or less, everything went according to plan," said Broderick. "I went into the stage pretty prepared. I had only a few mistakes. At the end of the day, I knew I had a good thing going and I was consistent."

Broderick has previously raced a few super Ds, but never any enduros - he has always specialized in cross country racing, typically at the World Cup and national level.

"It was nice to break up the race with that enduro kind of atmosphere rather than just cross country stages," he said. "I haven't really had a chance to race enduro previously, but I came from racing downhill on my hardtail at Mount Snow."

Lindine has had a rough few days of mechanicals, but today's stage finally went his way.

"I had a day where nothing went wrong, which was good since so far this race has been a challenge that way," said Lindine. "My GC time is way back, so the enduro has become something I'm thinking about trying to shoot for. Today was fun - I like those trails."

Last year's under 25 overall winner Matthews claimed the third spot. Still an under 25 rider, Matthews put his local knowledge to work and showed up many of his elders to step onto the podium.

Continuing into stage 4 as the race leader, Bishop was content to finish 17th on the stage.

"I had a blast out there. It was fun to do something a little different," said Bishop. "It was important today to stay out of trouble and stay smooth. There were a lot of people going for small gains today. It was a little like a sprinter's stage in the Tour de France where you don't want to lose time, but you don't want to gain a second or two by taking crazy risks."

Bishop leads Spencer Paxson (Kona Bikes) and Nick Waite (ProTested Gear) in the GC.


Vicki Barclay won her second stage in as many days, after having never previously won a Trans-Sylvania Epic stage.

"It feels amazing, but it's surprise to be honest," said Barclay. "I wasn't expecting to win today - I just tried to focus on riding smooth and using my home court advantage. I put on much bigger tires and had a lot of fun and felt focused and relaxed."

"Wildcat [segment three of five] is always the most epic segment. The most fun thing was to have local people out supporting me on the techy sections. It gave me a boost to have people who knew who I was and calling my name."

Second place went to Carolyn Popovich (Rare Diseases Cycling Team). She nearly jeopardized her day by briefly forgetting to swipe her enduro chip at the end of segment number one, but a rider behind her reminded her to do so.

"I haven't done an enduro before, but I've done a few super Ds. I'm totally into this though I don't think it would be any easier than cross country racing. I was so out of breath at the end of each segment. I'm sure that today will be the highlight of my week!" said Popovich.

Kaufmann rounded out the third place on the day, despite flatting and breaking her wheel on the third enduro segment.

"I felt kind of ho hum about this stage last year, but today I got into a good groove, and I knew it would be tough on a hardtail, but I just tried to ride smooth, and I had fun out there," said Kaufmann. "On the first three stages, I was riding with Vicki and it was fun to chase the pink down the trails. She knows these trails and is always is good on the rocks."

Cheryl Sornson (Rare Diseases Cycling) continues to lead the overall women's standings after stage 3. Yeager and McConneloug round out the current top three in the GC.

Under 25 men and women

Kaysee Armstrong (Kona TBB Racing) topped the under 25 women's category while Matthews was the best of the under 25 men.

Armstrong leads the under 25 women's GC while Payson McElveen (Richard's Rainwater) tops the under 25 men's standings.
