MITCHELL LEADS TOONA KOM; STEWART FOURTH IN STAGE 2

Altoona, Penn. (July 26, 2018) - After placing five riders in the top 15 in last night's time trial, the Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional Cycling Team continued its strong showing at the Tour de Toona in this morning's 63-mile circuit race, with Glen Mitchell taking the King of the Mountains lead and Jackson Stewart placing fourth in the stage.

With an early start keeping temperatures mild during the relatively flat race, Colavita-Sutter Home controlled the action for most of the race to defend Mark McCormack's lead.

At the first of the two KOM sprints, just 13 miles into the race, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Dominique Perras attacked from 1 km out, allowing Mitchell to ride wheels up to the sprint line and score and easy win.

A lap later, Mitchell bore down on a solo breakaway rider but was unable to close the gap before the line. Still, the first and second place results confirmed Mitchell as the first KOM leader of the stage race.

At the finish in Johnstown, which saw the road narrow considerably before a corner less than 200m from the line, Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Jackson Stewart waded into a wild dash for the last turn and ended up fourth on the stage behind Greg Henderson (Health Net p.b. Maxxis), Jeff Hopkins (Jittery Joe's-Kalahari), and Martin Gilbert (Volkswagen-Trek).

With the time bonus, Henderson captured the overall lead, bumping Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Ben Jacques-Maynes from third to fourth.

Mitchell said after the race, ¿The KOM jersey was there for the taking today, but there's still five more days of hard racing. I feel pretty good so I'll try to keep gaining points, but the goal for Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada is to win the bike race.î
