BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — Rohan Dennis of BMC Racing Team padded his overall lead in the USA Pro Challenge on Friday, winning the individual time trial with a dominant ride through Breckenridge.

Dennis, who won Stage 4 on Thursday to assume the race lead, covered the 8.5-mile circuit in 18 minutes, 11 seconds. The Australian was 27 seconds ahead of Rob Britton and 31 seconds ahead of teammate Brent Bookwalter.

The three-stage women's USA Pro Challenge also began Friday with a time trial over the same course. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Kristin Armstrong continued her comeback from retirement by besting Twenty16-Sho-Air teammate Allie Dragoo by 12 hundreds of a second.

The sixth stage Saturday takes the men 102 miles to Fort Collins, with the women riding a 58-mile route. Both races end Sunday.
