Trek-Segafredo assertive in thrilling GP de Montreal

Jasper Stuyven finished in 12th place for the reduced bunch sprint in Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal Sunday after a thrilling finale saw Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida) pulled back in the final meters. Trek-Segafredo helped push the pace in the final ascents of the Mt. Royal climb to try and make the race difficult, and to the liking of Bauke Mollema. On the last time up the 1.6-kilometer uphill that the peloton tackled 16 times, Ryder Hesjedal accelerated hard, putting the first major sting into the final selection.
