Gabriel Cullaigh sprints to 16th in Tour de Bretagne stage 2

Today’s stage presented the longest parcour of this year’s edition of the race. A total of 203 km saw the riders go through a very tough day on the bike. Early in the stage a group of four riders attacked and formed the breakaway of the day, and the peloton allowed them a 4 minutes gap before kicking up the pace and starting to cut it down.

With 64 km to go and at the foot of the uncategorized climb of Roc’h Tredudon, the peloton that broke into two big groups with Lucas Eriksson  and Julius van den Berg making it to the first one. With less than 40 km to go, eight riders joined the three leaders group with 5 of our guys sitting in the bunch behind. The gap got bigger and the stage win was played among the members of the front group, meanwhile in the group behind our riders positioned Gabriel Cullaigh for the group sprint.
Our British sprinter was the 5th of the group to cross the line and 16th overall.
