Georgia (April 21, 2005) - The Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional
Cycling Team endured rainy, slippery conditions in the 18.6 mile Stage
3 time trial of the Dodge Tour de Georgia.
The rain began to fall shortly before Jackson Stewart, the Kodak Gallery/Sierra
Nevada rider to ride, entered the start house and continued throughout
the day, making for treacherous conditions on the course, which included
the difficult climb of Mt. Alto.
"It was steep, and I was in the 38x23 for a while," Kodak Gallery/Sierra
Nevada's Glen Mitchell explained. "I didn't want to risk anything
and I took it safe in the corners."
Dominique Perras, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's best climbing threat for
the next two stages, finished 52nd with a time of 44:29. He said afterwards,
"I did what I could with what I had ... tomorrow we'll definitely
have to be on the attack."
