July 20, 2006 – Team USA’s Kevin Soller, who was 4th at the US junior individual time trial championships, gave it his all this morning at Stage 4 and surprised everyone except himself with a time of 21 minutes 35 seconds. His time was 20 seconds better than the top Canadian, Eric Smith. Quebec’s William Goodfellow finished 3rd with a time of 22:03.

This stage is one of the most unique in the world as the race starts 380m underground in Cité de l’Or.
