Salt Lake City (August 11, 2006) - "Our plan today was to get Dom up the road and take back a minute, and that's exactly what we did," said Nevada General Manager Robin Zellner after this evening's fifth stage of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, a 37-mile circuit race in downtown Salt Lake City.

On the second of six laps, Nevada's Dominique Perras broke away with seven other riders - Toyota-United's Chris Baldwin, Jacob Erker (Symmetrics), Daniel Ramsey (, Nathan Miller (BMC Racing), Andy Bajadali (KJZZ Composite), Valeriy Kobzarenko (Navigators Insurance) and Michael Creed (TIAA-CREF).

Starting the day in 8th overall at 2'46" behind race leader Jeff Louder (Health Net-Maxxis), Perras was the highest placed rider in the breakaway, which both the Health Net-Maxxis and Navigators teams were content to let go.

After reaching a maximum lead of 1'30", the break's gap came back to 55" at the finish, where Baldwin won the stage and Perras took 6th.

Having added another 6 seconds in time bonuses during the stage, the Nevada rider moved up to 6th place overall, leapfrogging Navigators' Cesar Grajales and Sergey Lagutin.

"It took me a while to get going this season and I had some illness in May and June, but I feel great right now," Perras said after the stage.

"I'm going to try to make something happen tomorrow and the stage is so selective, but I don't think my effort tonight will hurt me since the stage was so short," he added. Nevada's Jesse Anthony placed 14th in the stage and remains 16th overall.

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah concludes with tomorrow's Snowbird Road Race, featuring 3 major climbs and over 12,000 feet of elevation gain in 85 miles.

A time zone away, Nevada team members will also be gunning for the $100,000 purse at the Alexian Brothers Tour of Elk Grove in Illinois.
