Saudi Tour. Cees Bol finishes 6th overall in his first race for the team
6th overall and 6th in the final stage, Cees Bol can look back to a successful week of racing in Saudi Arabia.
“The guys helped me again so well today. We managed to survive that gravel section and in the final they brought me perfectly in position. In the uphill sprint I just missed the good legs, I was still in 2nd, 3rd position at 200 meters from the finish but it became a sprint of the dying swans. OK, I had to brake a bit just when we had to make speed, before the uphill finish, but that’s no excuse. Good result, but unfortunately not perfect.“ – said Cees Bol.
New teammates and new team atmosphere, but Cees Bol is positive about both.
“In five stages I finish four times in top ten, I obtain twice a podium spot and I take a 6th place overall. More important however is that we took every chance this week. No victory, but we got attuned to each other. We showed good team work and made progress day by day.” – ended Cees Bol.
