Tour of Alberta
Prologue: Calgary (ITT) - Stage Details

A trio of ORICA-GreenEDGE riders have recorded solid opening prologue performances at the Tour of Alberta, setting themselves in a strong position for overall contention as the race moves onto the road stages.

Canadian Christian Meier and returning South African Daryl Impey were the team’s top performers, stopping the clock 23seconds adrift of the winning time of five minutes 59seconds posted by Tom Domoulin (GIA).  

2014 Giro di Toscana winner Pieter Weening is just a further three seconds back, 26seconds off the pace.

Sport director Matt Wilson said the results, which placed them ninth, 11th and 17th respectively, was a good platform to launch the team's general classification ambitions throughout the coming days.

“The time trial went pretty well for us today,” Wilson said.
