With four Scandinavian races in the weekend resulting in two wins and a further two podiums, there’s not much to frown upon for the team. Today Sindre Lunke raced to 3rd in the Norwegian UCI-race Ringerike GP, and Lucas Eriksson was first over the line in the smaller Swedish criteria Scandis GP.
”We’re very proud of this weekend - we’ve had two fantastic days here at our Scandinavian neighbors”, says directeur sportif Michael Blaudzun.
“Sindre Lunke did another great performance today. He got in a break halfway through the race and ended 3rd on the line. He has to be proud of his weekend here, because these aren’t easy races. Of course, we wanted to win, that’s our attitude going into the races and that’s what we want, but two podiums for Sindre here in Norway is a great performance”, says Michael Blaudzun.
Seven riders took off along Sindre in the break and when the group entered the finishing laps with a tough climb, the group split up. Andreas Stokbro came with another small group from behind and finished 5th.
Whilst the team was racing for another win in Norway, Lucas Eriksson and Kim Magnusson held the Riwal Readynez banners high in the Swedish criteria Scandis GP. Lucas took a solo win just like his teammate Rasmus Bøgh Wallin did it yesterday in Scandinavian Race in Uppsala.
“I attacked with 40 kilometers to go and got three companions with me. With 15-ish to go, I went solo”, says Lucas Eriksson. “It’s always nice to win, even if it isn’t the biggest race, but a win is a win. It’s very special to do it in Sweden as well - I really feel the support from the fans”, ends Lucas Eriksson.
