PERRAS TAKES A SHOT IN FINAL STAGE OF TOUR DE GEORGIA

Alpharetta, Georgia (April 24, 2018) - As the Dodge Tour de Georgia drew to a close today, Dominique Perras of the Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional Cycling Team made a last-ditch effort for a stage win as part of a four-rider breakaway that formed after 65 miles of the 125-mile stage from Blairsville to Alpharetta.

Perras and Sven Krauss (Gerolsteiner) bridged up to Andrea Tafi (Saunier Duval-Prodir) and Danny Pate (Jelly Belly-PoolGel) and the four worked well together, increasing their lead to over 3 minutes as they enterered Cumming.

At the sprint point in Cumming with 40 miles to go, Perras attacked from 700m out and coasted across the line, winning $2500 for his effort. He also took second in the final sprint points location in front of Alpharetta City Hall.

When the group reached the finishing circuits in Alpharetta, the teams of sprinters like stage winner Gord Fraser (Health Net-Maxxis) drove the pace and it was only a matter of time before Perras and the breakaway were caught inside the last two laps.

Perras, the top Canadian overall in 28th place, commented, "I wanted to try for a stage and I'm feeling better every day. It's too bad the time trial didn't come later in the week! Honestly, the level of the race was harder than we thought and I'm surprised by how hard the ProTour teams raced."

At the finish, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Jackson Stewart placed 13th in the wild field sprint and 50th overall.

"I was in the right spot but the sprint all went to the other side of the road," Stewart explained. "This was probably the hardest race I've ever done, but I was looking for a better stage finish. G.C.-wise, I improved a lot and it's always good to improve."

Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Racing Manager, Kurt Stockton added, "Obviously it's tough to only have two finishers, but I think this was a real eye-opener for our guys to see what kind of level may be possible for them in the future. At the very least, it's been a great experience to be here at the Tour de Georgia."
