BORA hansgrohe German Professional CyclingBand of Brothers

Jordi Meeus also in the top ten of Milano-Torino

The oldest bike race in the world, Milano-Torino, ended in the expected bunch sprint today. BORA – hansgrohe was in position at the head of the bunch with 10 km remaining, but after a crash with four kilometers to go the boys lost each other and their leader Jordi Meeus almost had to stop. To recover from this incident was too much of an effort and Jordi entered the last corner too far in the back. In the end he sprinted to seventh place.

From the finish line

“The boys worked really well, and we have been in front before the beginning of all this road furniture. But then a guy crashed, and I had to click out of the pedal and almost stopped. To come back after this was just too much effort. Shane brought me up once again, but we couldn’t move before the decisive corner anymore and after that it was impossible to gain positions.” – Jordi Meeus
