BOIVIN MOVES INTO POINTS JERSEY AT SAGUENAY
Ten riders opened a small 11 second gap on the field, however, none were a threat to the overall standings. American Chad Beyer gave Canyon another win, outkicking Nadon, with Gage Hect (Aevelo) taking third. Five Canadians finished in the top-10 on the stage.
“Getting that first time bonus was awesome,” said Kevin Field, Team Manager. “Canyon rode very, very well. They are good at this kind of racing and had the numbers. We made some small mistakes out there … not getting on top of that breakaway sooner. However, whether we won stage and took Jersey or are in the position we are in now; it practically makes no difference to tomorrow. We are going to do everything we need to win.”
