Norwegian rider Kristian Aasvold displayed his great form yet again today in the French one-day race Paris-Camembert. Riding away in the final he formed a small group, where he was caught just 2 kilometers from the line and crossed the line in 29th place.
“The guys actually rode a very good race today”, said sports director Michael Skelde. “Kristian was very close to at least making a top 5 result but was unfortunately caught very close to the line. August had great legs as well for the sprint, but he was taken out by bad luck.”
The Norwegian riders August Jensen suffered a mechanical with 13 kilometers to go and on his way back to the peloton, he clashed with a service car, who’d made an unfortunate decision to change a tyre right after a corner. Fortunately he didn’t hurt himself.
“We’ve had many races like this, where the guys have done a great job, but we end up emptyhanded due to some bad luck. But it’s amazing to see everyone sacrificing themselves for each other, especially in a situation like the one we’re in, not knowing if we have a team next year. Incredible team spirit”, said Michael Skelde.
