Svein Tuft: Bringing it home

Svein Tuft rode to stage 6 victory on the Saint Georges circuit of Canada's top cycling stage race, the Tour de Beauce.

That's his second stage win, also winning stage 4 TT.

Most certainly his two stage wins adds a special class to the success of Team SpiderTech. A fantastic performance; Tuft on the final podium for third place, four podiums and SpiderTech winning the Team Classification.

Dominique Rollin's (Team Canada) gain to form is coming back as he finished in 13th overall.

A Tuft Move...

It was a gutsy move by Tuft on the final lap, together with 15 riders including the race leader Francisco Mancebo, as he attacked to win the stage 18 seconds from Andrew Pinfold (Unitedhealthcare).  Francisco Mancebo (Realcyclist) won the overall with Bernardo Colex (Amore&Vita) in second.

Svein Tuft last won Beauce in 2008 and finished second in 2007 and 2005. Although he didn't win the race he looked admiringly of his fellow spiders fine performance...

We came here at the Tour de Beauce for the Overall, but sometimes that doesn't always work out. The week was great and the team was superb. I am very proud of the guys and the way they raced this week.
