Gavin Mannion of Rally Cycling won the final two stages of Tour de Savoie Mont Blanc this weekend to claim the first European victories of his career. The 28-year-old American, who won the 2018 Colorado Classic, bested some big names including Pierre Rolland (B&B Hotels-Vital Concept), a former Tour de France stage winner.

On Saturday, Mannion won the stage 4 mountaintop finish on Notre-Dame-du-Pré against a select group of climbers for his first European stage race victory. He repeated the feat on stage 5 on Sunday, dominating the 22.4km mountain time trial from Aix-les-Bains to Mont Revard.
