According to the Tour of Alberta website, 2011 Tour de France champion Cadel Evans of Australia won stage four of the Tour of Alberta cycling competition that went through the south Alberta region of Black Diamond on Saturday.
Evans, of BMC Racing, posted a time of three hours, 57 minutes and 18 seconds to beat Simon Geschke of Germany, Tom Jelte Slagter of the Netherlands, Ben Day of Australia and Antoine Duchesne of Canada.
The fourth stage was originally supposed to go from the Black Diamond region to Canmore, but a severe flood that hit the southern Alberta region at the end of June, prevented that from happening and a change to the route was considered necessary.
Fellow Australian Rohan Dennis of continues to be the overall leader with a time of 15 hours, six minutes and 20 seconds. Dennis, who won stage three from Strathmore to Drumheller on Friday, has a 18 second lead on American Brent Bookwalter.
On Sunday, the cyclists will travel their final stage from Okotoks to Calgary. The stage is to be rather flat compared to other stages of the competition.
