report by Jean-Michel Lachance/Rosetti Devo
August 29, 2012 (Trinidad and Tobago) – I am currently racing the Tour of Trinidad and Tobago, a 10-stage road race celebrating the 50th anniversary of independence of the country. My team grabbed the yellow jersey on stage 1 with Emile Abraham. We control the race all stages, but unfortunately lose the lead on Stage 5 which involve a hill top finishs.

The plan for Stage 6 was to be on the attack and make pressure on the yellow jersey which we did. All our attacks were brought back by the colombians who currently lead the overall and its with 2km to go that i see an opportunity to attack again full gas and take the stage win. Five more stages where we will be offensive to take back the yellow jersey!
