Jonas Ahlstrand wins day 1 at 2010 Univest Grand Prix

Swedes go one-two in the Pennsylvania road race.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Swede Jonas Ahlstrand (Cykelcity) sprinted to victory ahead of the bunch at the Univest Grand Prix Saturday, edging PA Lightning’s Michael Olsson and Nick Frey (Jamis-Sutter Home).

A 21-man breakaway began to form on the third lap of the 5.8-mile Souderton-Franconia-Telford circuit that marked the first 63 miles of the 83-mile race. The move included Andy Jacques-Maynes, Frank Pipp and Kyle Wamsley (Bissell); Karl Menzies and Rory Sutherland (UnitedHealthcare-Maxxis); Dan Bowman and Scott Zwizanski (Kelly Benefit Strategies); Eric Boily and Ryan Roth (Spidertech-Planet Energy); Volodymyr Starchyk and Vladislac Borisov (Amore & Vita); and Bobby Lea (Bike NZ).

The break stayed away onto the 3.8-mile Souderton-Telford finish circuit, and with 5km to go, four riders — Pipp, Menzies, Borisov and one other —were together on the front of the race.

Borisov dropped his companions 3km from the finish, but was unable to outrun a hard chase by Amore & Vita and Cykelcity. The Swedes overpowered their Italian rivals to the line, however, and delivered Ahlstrand to the win on the final day of the 2009-10 UCI America Tour.

The Univest Grand Prix continues Sunday with the Criterium of Doylestown at 11 a.m. The 35-lap/50-mile criterium is the second and final race of the 2010 event.
