Alan's Results: Finished 2nd overall in the 32nd Tour de Mauritius: 1st in the team time trial, 3rd in Stage 3, 1st in Stage 6, and 2nd in Stage 7. White Jersey Winner!
The Tour de Maurice is a seven day stage race in Mauritius, a small island nation in the Indian Ocean (2000k off the African coast). His team won the team time trial as Alan crossed the line first to wear yellow into Stage 2. Alan then battled eventual 5-time winner Yannick Lincoln in the remaining six stages. Alan took the victory in Stage 6 and came in 2nd on Stage 7 to Yannick Lincoln to finish 2nd overall in the Tour! This was a big goal for Alan and he’s incredibly pleased with this result, which is a big improvement from his 5th overall last year. Alan said he could not have done it without his teammates at Ownsurance-V Office, so it was a total team effort by all.
