Trans Rockies: Stage 5

Stage 5 marks the glorious return to civilization for team Scheffer Andrew. After roughing it for real in the Canadian wilderness, Trev and Charlie rolled into Elkford BC in style. If you're wondering what Trev and Charlie are dealing with day to day, velonews has a great story.

Stage 5:
Yet another epic and extremely hot day in the saddle for our dynamic duo. With two passes on their plates the suitcases and hat boxes of courage where unpacked and opened. The 2100m Crossing Creek pass features an nifty rock garden for 3km (seen to the left). This stretch is notorious for claiming a few riders every year. As the late Steve Irwin would say, "Crikey, look at the chompers on that one!". The leaders (United Cycles and La Ruta) continue their slugfest continuing to try and force the opposition into a compromising position using clever tactics, raw power and sheer audacity. Despite it being their team manager's birthday, the La Ruta was unable to overcome the mighty United Cycle boys. Regardless, these two sets of rivals are putting on a show. Sadly, Team Opus was forced to withdraw from the race, congrats to a great race gentlemen, here's to a speedy recover.

What about the Scheffer Andrew Duo? Well, the continuing strategy of Charlie and Trev is consistency. Slotting in an amazing 5th on the day our dynamic duo ate away some serious time on the Swiss Frenetic Volvo team.

GC after Stage 5:
With the retirement of Team Opus, Scheffer Andrew moves comfortably into 6th on the GC.
With the work put in on stage 5, the boys have taken a serious chunk out of the 5th placed
team Frenetic Volvo. 5th place is securely locked in the sight of Trev and Charlie. In other GC
news, the Danish squad, Team Mermaid, is back in the top 10. I just thought that name was rather
intriguing.
