Martin in yesterday's race Nevada at the head of the field
Cannon Falls, Minn. (June 16, 2006) - In yesterday's windswept second stage of the Nature Valley Grand Prix, Nevada's Jackson Stewart and Martin Gilbert found their way into the decisive split of 16 riders that gained over five minutes on the field during the 60-mile Cannon Falls road race.

With Stewart's support, Gilbert managed to win the second bonus sprint as the group entered the finishing circuits in Cannon Falls, place fifth on the stage, and earn the SportsPro Most Aggressive Rider jersey.

"The field pretty much obliterated into a million pieces within 20 km of the start, and our guys did a good job of finding their way into the front grop. Jackson led out Martin at the finish but Health Net had five guys in the group and they were too strong," said Nevada Racing Manager Jonas Carney.

Tonight's 60-minute criterium in downtown Minneapolis will provide another opportunity for Gilbert and Nevada to make their mark on the race.
