Tour de France 2019: Matteo Trentin wins 17th stage; title contenders conserve legs for Alps

Posted On Aug 16 2020 by

first_imgMatteo Trentin claimed the third Tour de France stage win of his career as the race leaders kept plenty in reserve for the upcoming make-or-break mountain stages.The European champion from Italy was part of a breakaway group of more than 30 riders that left behind the peloton in the early stages of the 200-kilometer 17th stage. 1. Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) 642. Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) 503. Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) 38WHAT’S NEXT?The competitors have had an initial taste of the Alps, but Thursday’s ride is the first major Alpine stage and could prove punishing for anyone flagging. Stage 18 takes the riders up three peaks – Vars, Izoard and Galibier – that each rise 2,000 metres above sea level. A brutal test awaits. Trentin, 29, was the man most likely to win long before the finish, and he delivered for Mitchelton-Scott, riding solo in the closing stages after pulling clear of Kasper Asgreen, who took second for Deceuninck-Quick Step, with CCC’s Greg van Avermaet third.Wednesday was the day the riders arrived in the Alps, traveling from beneath the spectacular Pont du Gard aqueduct near Nimes and heading eastward to an altogether more mountainous setting at the finish in Gap.It was a taster day, one for the riders with an eye on glory in Paris on Sunday to acclimatize to their new surroundings, skirting by several rugged peaks without being called on to take on any daunting ascents.What it amounted to at the business end of the general classification was that nothing changed. France’s Julian Alaphilippe remained in the yellow jersey, with no challenges from his rivals as riders in the peloton effectively rested their [email protected] wins his 3rd @LeTour stage victory. Matteo Trentin remporte sa troisième victoire d’étape sur le Tour de France. #TDF2019 pic.twitter.com/MDcE9V2NCQ— Tour de France (@LeTour) July 24, 2019Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) retained an overall lead of one minute and 35 seconds over Britain’s defending champion Geraint Thomas (Team INEOS) and 1:47 over Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk.France’s Thibaut Pinot, strongly fancied by many to come through and win the Tour, remained fourth at 1:50.The yellow jersey had never changed hands in 23 previous stages ending in Gap, which last hosted a finish in 2015, and predictably that trend continued.Thomas is hoping Alaphilippe’s remarkable effort so far will take its toll in the mountains, saying: “You’d think he’d be starting to get tired now. Teams will be thinking to try to make it hard all day. It’ll be interesting. It’s three big, big days now, and I think a lot can happen.”Trentin added to his stage wins from the 2013 and ’14 Tours and moved up to 34th overall this year. He said on ITV4: “It was really an emotional finish because I’ve only won two races in my whole career alone.”STAGE RESULT1. Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) 4:21:362.

Wellington Recreation Commission holds grand opening of Fitness Center

Posted On Aug 14 2020 by

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Thursday was a big day at the Wellington Recreation Center. The new rec center which has been in the making for 20 years officially had its grand opening and ribbon cutting Thursday afternoon.The new addition features a new fitness center, meeting rooms, and other amenities. The fitness center has been open since late May. “I think we might have toured every building that was available over the past 20 years,” said Hankie Holefelder, Wellington Recreation Commission member to a crowd of 50 or so people including present and past WRC board members.Exercise equipment galore at the new Wellington Fitness Center.Originally proposed in 1994, the WRC board has looked at various locations from the old Apple Market grocery store building to the church that once housed the First Southern Baptist Church, to the Tibbs Furniture building and even the Wellington Junior High. In November 2008, WRC proposed refurbishing Memorial Auditorium to the city voters which was soundly defeated.In the end, WRC officials chose the same location.Holefelder credited former WRC member Lonnie Cooper for the decision to expand from the old facility.“We kept looking elsewhere and he kept telling us to stay put,” Holefelder said.Wellington Recreation Commission Executive Director Cody White and board member Hankie Holefelder speaking before group Thursday.The general public got to tour the new two-story rec facility at the 200 block of West Lincoln which includes a new weight room, treadmill and stationary bike room, other fitness rooms, locker rooms, conference rooms, art rooms, and offices. Even the old part of the rec center looks almost unrecognizable.The ceremony brought an array of chamber and city officials, although nobody from the Wellington school board was present.Members of the present and past WRC Board, from left: Lonnie Cooper, Shawn DeJarnett, former WRC Director Kenny Everhart, Hankie Holefelder, Cathy Mitchell and Tami McCue. In November 2013,  the Wellington City Council acted as a guarantor which directed the Wellington Public Building Commission to issue 20 year bonds not to exceed $990,000 for a $1.89 million Wellington Recreation Commission Center expansion. This came at no expense to the city, but will be paid through the existing 5 mill levies designed to the WRC over the next 20 years.The Fitness Center has been in operation for 20 years  – all of those on the second floor of Memorial Auditorium.For more pictures of the ceremony and fitness center click here.Follow us on Twitter.
