Team Adria Mobil Cycling finished the race in Ardennes in the similar manner as they started it – with the podium! Our hero on the last stage was Gašper Katrašnik who took third in the sprint finish.
There were two stages on the last day, our team was especially successful on the very last one. Gašper Katrašnik took third in the sprint finish and rounded up the race with the podium result.
45th edition of Circuit des Ardennes International was very hard, especially the second stage with ten mountain finishes. Our best cyclist on that stage was Žiga Grošelj who crossed the finish line half a minute behind the winner. Žiga is also our highest ranked cyclist in the overall standings, he finished the race in 25th place.
Gašper Katrašnik said this after the last stage: “The whole race was very hard, vibrant, without a single meter of flat road. I felt really good today, I could stay with the best on the climbs. Team prepared a perfect starting point for the sprint finish, but two cyclists were simply faster. I’m happy with how my legs felt and that I managed to transform that into a good result. This is confirmation that I’m ready and I can’t wait for the next races.”
