Tour of Alberta
Stage 5: Okotoks - Calgary - Stage Details

Peter Sagan (Cannondale) sprinted to victory in Calgary to close out the Tour of Alberta. The final day of racing endedin a bunch sprint after the peloton caught the remnants of the early breakaway on the third of four technical circuit laps in downtown Calgary. Rohan Dennis (Garmin Sharp) finished safely in the bunch to earn the overall victory ahead of Brent Bookwalter (BMC) and Damiano Caruso (Cannondale). 

Fumy Beppu spent the day in the break, caught inside the final 4km of racing. Tomas Vaitkus posted his first top ten result in the six day race, slotting into ninth place in the stage five sprint. 

“Our plan today was to sprint for Aidis Kruopis. But if anyone could get in a breakaway, I told them to go for it. That’s what Beppu did. He got into a group of eight riders that slipped away around 30km into the stage.” - Sport Director Matt White
