Fraser Takes Beauce Stage

Canadian sprinter extraordinaire Gord Fraser has chalked up another win for his Mercury team - his first after signing on for an additional two years. Under cloudy skies - much preferred to the wind and rain of the evening before - Fraser won the field sprint of an otherwise uneventful first stage of the GP Cycliste de Beauce. The 158 kilometre stage from Quebec City to Sainte Marie featured numerous attacks, but the major squads, such as Mercury and race leader Frank McCormack‚s Saturn team quickly shut everything down. Tomas Konecny (ZVVZ) took second place, and his team mate Slavomir Heger third. Chann McRae (Saturn) repeated his fourth place result for the second straight stage, as did Andrzei Sypytkowski (Mroz) in fifth place.

McCormack finished in the pack, and maintained his race leading position.
