Robin Carpenter continued his winning ways in 2017 with the Holowesko-Citadel rider taking a solo win at the Winston Salem Cycling Classic. The 24-year-old won a stage and the overall of the Joe Martin Stage Race last month and carried his form into the North Carolina one-day race, soloing to the win.

Carpenter made his decisive move on the KOM with one kilometre to race and held off the fast finishing Ryan Roth (Silber), last year's winner, by ten seconds. Canadian road race champion Bruno Langlois (Garneau Quebecor) rolled over the line one second later to complete the podium.
