Dwayne Kress (Challenge by Choice, Squamish) took his second consecutive stage victory as the Peak Centre Indoor Racing Series returned to the Original Time Trial course. Dwayne’s time of 36:24.7 was enough to give him the maximum points on the stage, taking 3 bonus points for improving his time from stage 1 (37:57.1). Stage 1 winner Teklit Tesfay (Team Eritrea) could only manage 3rd in 37:39.4, 6 seconds behind Roger Lee (Peak Centre, Vancouver; 37:33.7) who also picked up 3 bonus points. In all, 83% of riders who completed both stages 1 and 6 improved on their time and the bonus points, with the extra points helping to re-shape the GC. Those front three riders continue to pull away from the rest, with Kress becoming the first rider to break 100 points with 107. Lee and Tesfay are tied on 91, with Tesfay holding on to second place with his excellent OTT time from stage 1.
