Sea Otter 2006 — Time Trial — Pro Men’s MTB — Stage #2

April 7, 2006 (Monterey, CA) — Switzerland’s Ralph Naef (SUI, Multivan Merida) put his head down and pushed his body to the limit today to win Stage 2 of the Sea Otter Classic Pro Men’s Stage Race. The two-mile time trial demanded that riders put everything all on the line, as any lapse in concentration or effort cost precious seconds. Jean-Christophe Peraud (FRA, Orbea) couldn’t match Naef’s pace and wound up second. Sam Schultz (USA, U23 National Team) stopped the clock with the third-fastest time.

Geoff Kabush (CAN, Maxxis) was the top Canadian finisher was with a solid fourth place. Other Canadians results include a 9th courtesy of Max Plaxton (CAN, Rocky Mountain-Business Objects), 15th from Mathieu Toulouse (CAN, Maxxis), 20th from Ricky Federau (CAN, Team R.A.C.E.) and 22nd from Roddi Lega (CAN, Norco).
