The kids pick up their gear for the stage 4 Time-trial. Larry Martin and his crew are working so hard for these kids.

The American cadet (15-16 boys) teams of Borah Development and Chipotle Development have put the 20 Canadian teams on notice at the Tour of Rimouski. These American riders have won every stage, hold the Leader's Yellow Jersey, Sprinter's Green Jersey, and Climber's Polka Dot Jersey, and sit 1st and 2nd on team general classification.

Today was another great day for Borah Development 15-16 boys. Jordan finished 2nd in the stage 4 time-trial, 16 seconds behind the stage winner. Evan Hartig finished 7th, Rudy Peterson 11th, and Trevor Rolette 47th.

In the stage 5 criterium, all 4 of the Borah Development riders finished in the same time as the winner, with Rudy 6th, Trevor 7th, Evan 16th, and Jordan 24th.

After stage 5, Evan sits 3rd on GC, Jordan 6th, Rudy 12th, and Trevor 37th. They are 2nd on the Team GC. Jordan continues to lead the climbers competition for the Polka Dot Jersey.

The Chipotle Development Team continues their domination. In fact, they have won each of the 5 stages, and lead both the individual and team GC. The also have a lead in the sprint competion for the Green Jersey.

As strong as the Chipotle team is, word from the Borah Development enclave is that Evan, Jordan, Rudy, and Trevor have become a very tight group, and are willing to give it up for each other. This is sure to be a big factor in the tough final stage.

Tomorrow's final stage 6, features 5 laps on a 7 mile circuit with a brutal mile long steep climb each lap. It will be an opportunity for both American teams to showcase their talent, and beat the canadians on their home turf.
