Moran Vermeulen and Lukas Rüegg on 13th and 14th place at the Rhodos GP UCI 1.2!
Team Vorarlberg with strong team performance at the Rhodes GP by Culture & Sports Organization – Moran Vermeulen and Lukas Rüegg in the Top 15!
At today’s UCI one-day classic on the Mediterranean island of Rhodes (UCI 1.2 category), the pros got to know the entire island. Once around – in total 185 kilometres with start and finish in Rhodes town.
Right at the beginning of the race there were numerous attacks and several leading groups, in which the Team Vorarlberg pros were always well represented. However, none of these groups was able to break away decisively from the field.
Shortly before the finish the peloton was closed again and everything was set for the sprint of the day.
Moran Vermeulen and Lukas Rüegg in 13th and 14th place!
The sprint of the day was won by the Norwegian Eirik Lunder (Team Coop – Repsol) ahead of the Dane Rasmus Bøgh Wallin (Restaurant Suri – Carl Ras) and Daniel Federspiel (Team Felbermayr – Simplon Wels).
Moran Vermeulen and Lukas Rüegg came in as the best Team Vorarlberg riders at the same time as the winner in 13th and 14th place.
Tomorrow some of them will start at the International Criterium in Rhodes City. Before the three-day UCI 2.2 Tour of Rhodes next week, UCI points will be at stake once again.
