Daryl Impey (Orica GreenEDGE) won the final stage, as well as, the overall title of this year’s Tour of Alberta.
Meanwhile, Ryan Anderson (Optum p/b Kelly Benefits) finished in second place, while Ramunas Navardauskas (Garmin-Sharp) was third.
In the general classification, Tom Dumoulin took the second spot on the podium, at 1 second behind Impey, after leading the race all week. Bissell Development Team’s Ruben Zepuntke rounded things out in third.
“I was so motivated coming back, I really trained hard when I was off.
Tactically we rode well today. We always had a guy up the road and in the moves so we put a lot of pressure on the teams behind and that set it up for me.
Coming out of that last corner it was nearly impossible to lose, everybody stuck to the plan, we knew it was always going to be a gamble when we put everything on the finish but I’m just stoked.”
