USA Pro Challenge Stage 4 Breckenridge

dennis breck win

After several days of protecting the GC riders Dennis finally gets in position to take a win, and that he does. The Aspen to Breckenridge stage was 126 miles with over 10,000 ft of climbing. Team BMC took charge of the stage and lead the peloton for most of the 126 miles. Once the peloton gets to the last KOM on Hossier Pass BMC again takes control down the descent.

Robby Squires of Trek Factory Racing makes a break on the descent and Dennis chases with the Yellow Jersey Bookwalter close behind. The climb up Moonstone road proves to be to much for Bookwalter after Taylor Phinney give his teammates a good pull. Squire again makes a break and Dennis is on the chase after looking over his shoulder to check on the Yellow Jersey. At this point Dennis has to make the decision to go for the win, and that he does.

Rohan Dennis finished the stage 19 seconds ahead of the field and took the Yellow, Green and Red Jerseys!3jerseywin
