From the finish line

„My legs haven’t been as good as the last days today, but still this was the best TT of my career. I trained a lot on the TT bike during the off season, and also did my first ever aero test. I think those efforts pay off. I am happy with the result today and in the GC. We had a young squad here and the boys really supported me very well the whole week.“ – Ben Zwiehoff


„We can be happy looking back to a hard week of racing. We aimed for a top ten in GC and achieved this with Ben. But we also raced offensively, and it was nice to see we are able to put our stamp on the race. Florian did a strong TT today and showed again his potential. With Ben, you see that he made a big step regarding time trials and this also makes him more and more an option when it comes to stage race leaderships.“ – Jens Zemke, Sports Director
