Captain Thalmann closes the 2020 season with eighth place at the championships in Switzerland – Stefan Küng (Groupama FDJ) wears red-white-red!
The captain is always the last to leave a ship. So yesterday Roland Thalmann finished the season at the Swiss road championships in Märwil over 175 kilometers. As the second best Continental rider, he showed a strong race and set 10 UCI points.
Visibility of a maximum of 100 meters (fog), the cold and the hard driving style made the race a real elimination race in which World Tour professional Stefan Küng (Groupam FDJ) wins solo. Wyss (NTT Pro Cycling) finished second, Pellaud (Androni) third. Colin Stüssi had to end the race early with respiratory problems.
A short, eventful but very successful 2020 season is now over. A season review will follow in the next few days!
