EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) South Africa's Daryl Impey won the Tour of Alberta by a second Sunday, sprinting to take the sixth and final stage and earn the deciding 10-second time bonus.

Impey, riding for Orica-Greenedge, edged Dutchman Tom Dumoulin for the title.

''We had nothing to lose today,'' Impey said. ''We took the initiative and tried to get every second we could. Today was a bit gamble for us. When you gamble like we did, sometimes things pay off.''

Dumoulin, riding for Giant-Shimano, had held the lead since winning the opening prologue.

''To lose by one second on the last day is incredible,'' Dumoulin said.

Impey finished the 77-mile final stage in 2 hours, 46 minutes, 22 seconds.
