Team Canada finished 1-2 on Friday at Stage 2 of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Saguenay, while another Canadian rider donned three out of four jerseys.
Team Canada's Pier-Andre Cote won the 156 kilometre second stage, finishing eight seconds ahead of team mate Adam Roberge. Canadians also took fourth with Ryan Roth (X-Speed United) and fifth with Nickolas Zukowsky (Floyd's Pro Cycling). Zukowsky took the overall lead in the race, as well as leading both the Point and the Best Young Rider competitions.
"We're pretty happy about today after a bad day yesterday," said Cote. "Our execution wasn't the best yesterday so we wanted to do better. The four track guys who aren't specialists in road racing did a super job; managing to put me in a situation where I could get in a breakaway with Emile Jean [Floyd's Pro Cycling]. We were away for 15 kilometres before the final climb and I managed to stay away to the finish and win the race. Adam was set up perfectly because he didn't have to [chase] and took second, so we are really stoked about today; it's a nice rebound after yesterday."
