Team Adria Mobil Cycling started on the four day long, first category race Czech Cycling Tour. First stage was a team time-trial. Team was 10th among the eighteen teams. Home team Elkov - Author Cycling Team surprisingly won, their riders were three seconds faster than those of Bora-Hansgrohe, only WorldTour team on the start.


Adria’s team Rogina Radoslav, Groselj Žiga, Borso Andrea, Per Gorazd, Gazvoda Gregor, KatraŠnik Gašper, Božič Jon & Horvat Žiga had an average speed of 52,518 km/h. They were 43 seconds down on the leaders on the 18 km long race.


Team coach Boštjan Mervar: “I’m satisfied with the TTT result, this is the discipline we don’t train a lot this season. 202 km long stage is ahead of us, with the altitude difference of 3400 meters – with last 50 km being the lightest – and is the only stage where we expect a sprint finish.”
