Kori Kelley Seehafer wins stage two of the Tour de PEI and grabs the yellow jersey
     June 9, 2008

American cyclist Kori Kelley Seehafer (Menikini-Selle Italia-Masters Colours) wears the yellow jersey after today’s race across the Confederation Bridge. An elated Seehafer celebrated with one hundred local students who came out to show their support for the athletes.

A talented junior athlete, Denise Ramsen (Team Ontario), earned the jersey for Top Canadian. Rochelle Gilmore holds onto the sprint jersey.

Today’s 14.5 km time trial, which took place on the Confederation Bridge, the world’s longest bridge over ice covered waters, which links Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick, is an experience the athletes won’t soon forget.

The Tour de PEI, presented by Scotiabank, is a five stage International women’s cycling event which runs from June 8-12, 2008. Stage 3 will see the women racing 120.2 km through the hills of PEI from Kensington to North Rustico.
