According to the Tour of Alberta website, Australian Rohan Dennis of Team Garmin-Sharp won the first ever Tour of Alberta on Sunday as the cyclists concluded the six day competition by cycling from Okotoks to Calgary.
Dennis posted a six day overall time of 17 hours, 48 minutes and 40 seconds to beat American Brent Bookwalter of BMC Racing by 18 seconds.
For the third time this week Peter Sagan of Slovakia won the stage. Sagan, ranked second in the world, was the most dominant cyclist in the early going of the competition, but really struggled in the stage that went from Strathmore to Drumheller. Ironically that was the stage that Dennis won and took the overall lead to stay.
The race finished in the heart of downtown Calgary with the Calgary Tower in the backdrop of the finish line. Sunday's fifth stage went 129.4 kilometres and the cyclists were treated to much warmer conditions compared to Saturday.
