Youth classification, team classification, August and Andreas in the overall Top-10, and four out of five top 10 stage finishes with Arvid De Kleijn sprinting to 3rd today in the bunch sprint. The team finished Tour of Saudi Arabia today with incredible teamwork and a fantastic start to the season!
“The guys did some amazing teamwork again today with nonstop focus for three and a half hours”, says directeur sportif Michael Skelde. “It’s not often in this sport where you get to tie a bow on a race with the goals you had at the start of the day, but we managed to do that, which is just incredible.”
Despite some crashes in the crosswinds and both Andreas Kron and Arvid De Kleijn going down, they managed to get back and finish strong.
“I had to change my bike twice and ended up riding James’ bike for the last 40 kilometers”, said Andreas Kron after the stage. “Elmar and August worked hard for Arvid in the end and did an amazing job to keep him in a good position.”
“We’ve all come from different teams last year, so it’s awesome to already feel this great team spirit. It’s just a thrill to be a part of”, ends Andreas Kron.
