Fast day in Dorpenomloop Rucphen today!
After one hour of racing the first breakaway went clear. Several attemps were made during the first part of the race, and our guys managed to keep the team well represented. After an initial 8 men group (including Ide Schelling) was brought back, the break of the day went up the road and was caught with 30 km to go.
The peloton speed increase resulted into cuts and small groups with Fabio Jakobsen making it to the first one along with 10 other riders.The last 10 km were a succession of attacks between the members of the breakaway and eventually Maarten van Trijp (MET) got the gap and took the win.
Behind, Fabio out-sprinted everyone in the group and secured the second place, that together with Ster Van Zwolle's win and how he rode yestarday in Ronde van Drenthe proves that he has began the season in top shape.
We can look back on another great weekend of racing and already look forward to next week!
