Tour of Alberta Completes 2013 Season for 5-hour ENERGY® presented by Kenda Racing Team


DAHLONEGA, GEORGIA – The inaugural Tour of Alberta, a UCI 2.1-rated stage race, will be the season finale event for the 5-hour ENERGY® presented by Kenda Racing Team. The team has had a successful 2013 campaign, having been in either the No. 1 or No. 2 position all year in the National Racing Calendar team standings, and featuring team captain Francisco “Paco” Mancebo of Spain as the individual men’s NRC champion for a third consecutive year.

The Tour of Alberta will be a six-stage race, starting in Edmonton on Tuesday, September 3 and ending in Calgary on Sunday, September 8. The race will cover close to 530 miles (850 kilometers). 5-hour ENERGY® presented by Kenda Racing Team is one of seven Continental squads in the 15-team event.

“5-hour Energy presented by Kenda has worked very hard to secure an invitation to the Tour of Alberta stage race. We are proud to represent our Canadian sponsor DeVinci at the race and look forward to competing against the world's best cyclists,” said Frankie Andreu, director sportif of the 5-hour ENERGY presented by Kenda Racing Team. “We have some very good opportunities for stage wins next week with Shawn Milne, Bobby Sweeting, and our captain, Francesco Mancebo. This will be the final race of 2013 for the team and we are determined to finish with a victory just as we started the season with a victory.”

The Tour of Alberta roster:
 Andrés Miguel Díaz Corrales (Cartago, Valle Del Cauca, Colombia)
 Max Jenkins (Citrus Heights, Calif.)
 Francisco “Paco” Mancebo (El Tiemblo, Avila, Spain)
 Shawn Milne (Beverly, Mass.)
 Taylor Shelden (Louisville, Colo.)
 Jim Stemper (Jackson, Wyo./Wauwatosa, Wisc.)
 Bobby Sweeting (Asheville, N.C.)
 David Williams (Grand Rapids, Mich.)

“Having the 5-hour ENERGY® team race for a second time in Canada gives everyone at Devinci great pride. The team raced well earlier this year at Tour de Beauce and is coming off a strong race at Tour of Utah. We are proud to be the official road bicycle of the Team and hope they can continue the winning ways next week at their final UCI event of the year,” said Devinci Marketing Manager David Régnier-Bourque. At the Tour de Beauce, held in Quebec in June, Mancebo won Stage 3 (the climb of Mont Mégantic) and finished fourth on G.C. Stemper was second overall in the King of the Mountain classification.
