Altoona, Penn. (July 28, 2018) - The Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Professional Cycling Team went on the offensive in today's fourth stage of the Tour de Toona, a 60-mile circuit race in the nearby town of Hollidaysburg, with Glen Mitchell regaining the KOM lead and Ben Jacques-Maynes spending most of the race off the front.

At the first KOM today, Mitchell, Jacques-Maynes, and Aerospace Engineering's Hugh Moran, who yesterday took the KOM lead from Mitchell by one point, reached the top of Chimney Rocks Road in that order, returning the KOM jersey to Mitchell with a two point lead.

¿We went out aggressively today and we're going to stay aggressive and try to make something happen over the next couple days,î Mitchell said. ¿There's three climbs left on Saturday with KOM points, and keeping the jersey is a goal for Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada.î

The trio gained a 30 second lead on the descent, but the break soon reshuffled, with Mitchell and Moran falling back to the pack and Jacques-Maynes being joined by Snow Valley-SealOn's Matthew Crane, Jittery Joe's-Kalahari's Tim Johnson, and Colavita-Sutter Home's Davide Frattini and Aaron Olson.

This was a breakaway group of five very strong riders, and their lead reached two minutes.

But Health Net p.b. Maxxis missed the break and had to defend Chris Wherry's overall lead, so they chased hard, aided by Webcor Builders and Targetraining.

Jacques-Maynes and his four companions were caught at the foot of the final climb, just a few miles from the finish.

Colavita-Sutter Home's Juan Jose Haedo won the stage in a field sprint, with Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada's Jackson Stewart taking sixth.

After spending most of the race off the front, Jacques-Maynes lost time on the final climb and fell from 11th to 32nd in the overall standings. But as Kodak Gallery/Sierra Nevada Operations Manager Kurt Stockton pointed out, ¿Ben rode really aggressively today and made a serious attempt to win the stage, and that's how we want to race.î
