Publi-Tour Midi-Pyrenees - France
We have word that Sue Palmer-Komar finished this six stage race very strongly, ending up 7th overall. Palmer-Komar was 15th in the time trial yesterday (Saturday), 33 seconds behind the winner, and 6th in today's stage - 18 seconds behind winner Fabiana Luperini of Italy. Today's stage finish with a climb, and Palmer-Komar was with Luperini and the other top riders until the Italian's final explosive attack. This means that we now have 3 Canadians to watch in Montreal for the World Cup...
