Burke Continues to Hold Onto 5th at Tour of Alberta

Stage 2 of the Tour of Alberta went to Cannondale Drapac's Wouter Wippert, who jumped from the field with about 25 metres to go and outsprinted the pack to win his first race in more than two years at Spruce Grove.

"It releases some pressure for sure, especially noting the state of our team," said Wippert, who's American-based team is facing potential shut down next week if funding isn't found. "A win in a (big) race like this certainly helps the effort."

American Evan Huffman of Rally Racing increased his overall lead by three seconds via a time bonus over teammate Sepp Kuss (18 seconds behind) and third-place overall Cannondale Drapac's Tom-Jelte Slagter of The Netherlands (31 seconds behind).

"The overall race isn't done at all," said Huffman. "But, we're in a really good (team) position. We have several guys in the top 10 hold the right cards. The goal is to be on top of the podium on Monday."

Jack Burke of Aevolo continues to be the highest place Canadian as well as Best Young Rider. The 22-year-old is from Squamish, B.C.
Sepp Kuss (USA) of Rally Racing took over the Lexus of Edmonton King of the Mountain jersey.
