Alexander Kamp was faster than ever on his time trial bike on today’s race against the clock, according to sports director Michael Blaudzun, and advanced 8 spots to lie 21st overall after the sixth stage of Tour of Britain.

With a time of 17’17’’ over the 14,4 km course, Kamp matched many of the rivaling stars from the top level of the sport finishing 26th on the day in a peloton of 10 WorldTour teams.

“Alexander rode a great time trial today; probably the best he’s ever done”, says Blaudzun. “He’s not a specialist, so it just shows how much he’s improved.”

With the strong ride Alexander keeps the initial goals intact and Michael Blaudzun sees opportunities for the next couple of days.

“He’s just 30 seconds from a spot in the top 10, which would be a great result. The race is not over; it’s two tough stages remaining, and we’re ready for more”, ends Michael Blaudzun.
