- American Tejay Van Garderen won the individual time trial at the USA Pro Challenge cycling race, stretching his overall lead to 92 seconds ahead of Sunday's final stage.
Saturday's triumph puts 26-year-old defending champion Van Garderen in position to capture the crown again over the last 125 kilometres from Boulder to Denver.
"This is incredible," Van Garderen said. "My team is riding amazing. Everyone is having a great time."
BMC Racing's Van Garderen, the last man on the 10-mile layout thanks to his 20-second lead through the first five stages, won the time trial for the second year in a row in 24 minutes 26.5 seconds, defeating compatriot Tom Danielson by 53 seconds.
