Stage 4a : GP de Beauce - Time Trial 15.7km in Beauceville, Quebec
Winner of todays time trial in an unofficial time of 19:32 is Frank McCormack (Saturn). This was an out and back course with only one slight climb and a tailwind on the return section. Weather hot and sunny.
Levi Leipheimer (Saturn) is expected to maintain his overall GC lead and may even extend it a little, although some top GC positions should shift.
Tonight at 6:30 stage 4b will take place in downtown St-Georges. A 1.6 km circuit will be covered 31 times, total 49.6 km. Fast, tactical racing is expected, although Gord Fraser (Mercury) and Brian Walton (Saturn) will be missed.
