Tour of Alberta - Race Overview

South African Daryl Impey has returned to racing in the best possible fashion taking out the final stage and overall victory at the Tour of Alberta today.

With the full support of the ORICA-GreenEDGE outfit, Impey went into the final stage in third overall and utilised the bonus seconds on offer for the stage win to snatch the yellow jersey from Tom Dumoulin (GIA) by just one second.

“I was so motivated coming back, I really trained hard when I was off,” Impey, who returned to racing at the Canadian six-day event having been cleared of any wrong doing in a recent investigation by the South African Institute for Drug Free Sport, said after his victory.

“Tactically we rode well today. We always had a guy up the road and in the moves so we put a lot of pressure on the teams behind and that set it up for me.
