Tour de Venezuela – Stage 6 Report

September 1, 2007 (Acarigua, Venezuela) – For one of the longest stages of the Tour of Venezuela, not a lot happened – which in a race filled with heat and potholes, is a good thing. Once again, Symmetrics Fuelled by FarmPure had to deal with terrible roads and incredibly high temperatures.

Jeff Sherstibitoff crashed with 5km to go but is fine, however he did lose some time. Svein Tuft also crashed, and is also ok, but did not lose time as it was under 3km to go. Jake Erker had a strong ride finishing fifth.

Most importantly, the team is feeling its legs come alive and plans to be very aggressive in the second half of the tour..
