From the Finish Line

“The stage in summary: Hot, windy and nervous. The goal was to fight for the stage win with Sam Bennett and to get Sergio Higuita through the day without losing any time. The guys worked a lot again today, especially neo-pro Florian Lipowitz put in an impressive performance for the third day in a row. In the end it was very hectic and Simmons’ attack was difficult to parry. But Sam’s sprint was really strong and we are happy with another podium.” Bernhard Eisel, Sports Director
