That’s a wrap for our guys in Circuit des Ardennes!
In the short and explosive morning stage, the peloton tackled a 76km long parcour with several climbs along the way. It was a hectic start before a 4-men group jumped off the bunch in the last difficulty of the day, and rode to the finish line. In the last descent Gabriel Cullaigh positioned himself for the sprint of the bunch and took 8th.
The afternoon stage presented a tough parcour with 5 categorized climbs. After a fast first hour of racing, a group of 9 riders finally broke clear and made the breakaway of the day, with one sole rider making it to the finish and claiming the victory. The peloton picked up the pace after the last climb and in the final sprint for the 2nd place, our Gabriel Cullaigh took a final 20th place in the stage.
It has been a tough weekend of racing for our guys here in France, next up for our team Liège-Bastogne-Liège next weekend!
