Bell Still 8th at Vuelta Independencia Nacional

Team SmartStop threw everything they could at stage six of the Vuelta Independencia Nacional on Friday, only to fall short as another crash marred the sprint finish.

The 104km (16 lap) circuit race around Santiago went as predicted - high speeds, lots of attacking and plenty of action. The goal for Team SmartStop was to collect as many time bonuses as possible as well as hunt for another stage win.

"Today was close, the guys went out all guns blazing for the time bonuses and the stage win, it went good, we got two of the three bonuses," said Sporting Director, Michael Creed.

For the most part, the peloton remained together for the majority of the stage, until the final third of the stage when a group of six, including Travis McCabe, formed a breakaway group. The advantage never got out to more than a minute and was at 20 seconds when the bell rang for the final lap.

With 1km to go, Team SmartStop was altogether and ready to give everything they had for the final sprint to the finish line. "Huffman welded everything together but with 800m to go the yellow jersey crashed right in front of them, it messed up the sprint and Travis got 6th after having to put a foot down," said Creed.

Jaime Castaneda of Team EPM-Une won the stage.

Despite falling short of the goal, Creed is impressed with the way the team is riding in the Dominican Republic. Chris Butler now sits second on the general classification behind new leader Stiven Ortiz (Team EPM-Une) by just seven seconds, with Canada's Zach bell in 8th at 2:17.

With no King of the Mountains points on offer during stage six, Evan Huffman still retains the KOM jersey and the team is sitting well clear of second place on the Team Classification.

Tomorrow will the Vuelta Independencia Nacional will take the peloton 151.6km from Santiago to Santo Domingo in the penultimate stage of the eight-day stage race.
