Three Riwal Securitas riders finished in the top 30 of today’s hard Belgian one-day race De Brabantse Pijl, with Swedish Lucas Eriksson finishing 18th while Andreas Kron and August Jensen crossed the line just a bit further back, as the race was won by World Champion Julian Alaphilippe.
“We knew it would be a very hard race today against the best in the world. We went into the race with a flat hierarchy, where everybody got a chance to chase a result. This was possible the last race for some of these guys, our team’s current situation taken into consideration, so it’s admirable how they keep on fighting and giving their all”, said sports director Michael Blaudzun after the race.
“We wanted Kron, Eriksson and Jensen to contend in the final and they were there and fought till the finish line, so all in all it was a good race for us. Now we look ahead to more racing on Sunday.”
Another classic awaits in the weekend as the team take on the French Paris-Tours.
