KODAK GALLERY/SIERRA NEVADA SOLID AS MITCHELL TAKES 10TH IN STAGE 2

Rome, Georgia (April 20, 2018) - The Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional Cycling Team put in a solid performance in today's Stage 2 of the Dodge Tour de Georgia, with Glen Mitchell taking 10th place on the stage and all team members finishing in the main bunch at the end of the rolling 122 mile race from Fayetteville to Rome.

As the race got underway, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Jackson Stewart made the very first attack of the race, but it was Ben Jacques-Maynes that started the day's first serious breakaway, when a group of eight riders went clear after 40 miles.

"We were really driving it," Jacques-Maynes said after the race, "It was a serious attempt to win the race."

But despite hard work from the likes of Andrea Tafi (Saunier Duval-Prodir), Michael Rich (Gerolsteiner), and Nathan O'Neill (Navigators Insurance), the peloton closed down this dangerous group quickly.

But shortly thereafter, at mile 52, Tafi went clear again on a roughly 70-mile solo break that held a maximum lead of 5'30" and maintained a healthy shot at the stage win until the run-in to the hilly finishing circuit in Rome.

As the field completed the second of three trips up a steep hill overlooking the finish line, a Discovery Channel-led pack blew past Tafi.

As small groups of riders were left behind by the hard tempo, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Glen Mitchell moved towards the front.

"This circuit is all about position," Mitchell explained, "We were all fighting for what we could without being too dangerous. I came out of the last corner in tenth wheel and that's where I ended up."

Despite a much faster pace than yesterday's stroll from Augusta to Macon, no Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada team members lost significant time today.

"Every day that we make it to the finish together is a good day," Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Racing Manager Robin Zellner commented. "Glen's riding really consistent, Ben [Jacques-Maynes] recovered from being sick, and [overall contender] Dominique Perras is staying out of trouble. This was a really good day for us."
