A great show of team spirit ended with five Riwal Securitas riders in the top 25 on today’s stage in Tour Poitou-Charentes en Nouvelle Aquitaine with Danish Tobias Mørch Kongstad finishing just outside the top 10 as 11th on the day.
“The guys rode a great stage and stayed together in the final as a team. They sure did their homework”, says sports director Michael Skelde. “We managed to finish with five guys far up in front and didn’t lose any time from the small gaps down through the peloton, so it’s a good day for us.”
With crosswinds throughout the stage the race was split several times during the day, but it was all together for the final two laps, where the riders managed to stay together and finish comfortably within the main bunch.
“Now we’re ready for tomorrow’s two stages, first with a half stage at noon and a TT in the evening”, ends Michael Skelde.
