Tour of Alberta Report
Cannondale Drapac’s Alex Howes jumped from the field with about 300 metres to go and held off a chasing pack to win Delta Lodge at Kananaskis Stage 3 in Edmonton at the University of Alberta. The American outdistanced second-place finisher and teammate Wouter Wippert of The Netherlands who won Stage 2 on Saturday.

“I jumped coming to the top of the final climb (up out of the River Valley) and was trying to lead out Wouter because I think he’s the top sprinter in the race. When I got a gap, he yelled ‘to go for it’ so I kept going and held on. The end of the year is going well for me and the team.”

Howes had won a stage in the Colorado Classic last month and accelerates at shorter climbs and that played to his strength entering the final kilometre.

American Evan Huffman of Rally Cycling finished with the group and retained his overall lead by 18 seconds over teammate Sepp Kuss. Howes moved up to a tie in third place with teammate Tom-Jelte Slagter of The Netherlands, at 31 seconds behind.
