“Shortly after I resumed to training I became exposed to Houshang's coaching style. It was evident that he cared for each of his athletes.”

Svein Tuft proved Saturday why he is Canada’s best time trialist. He won the 17.4 kilometre stage six of the Eneco Tour in 20:25. His first world tour individual win so far this season, he leads the GC with one stage to go.

Svein – riding for Orica-GreenEDGE – rode an average speed of 51.13 km and has put his team well ahead before the final stage. In a team press release he said: "When I came across the line and saw my time, I was pretty surprised. I was hoping to have a really good time trial, but I didn't expect to be in the leader's jersey at this point in the race. It's a great feeling."

“Svein is a mentor at the Pacific Cycling Centre and has shown his expertise over and over in ITT,” said PCC Head Coach Houshang Amiri. “Well-done and congratulations to Svein and ORICA-GreenEDGE team.”
