Ans – Mur de Huy, 195.5km.
Dylan Teuns finished 14th up the Mur de Huy, that was the final judge of this year’s Flèche Wallonne. As expected any attempt of breakaway did not succeed to bring it home. Bahrain Merida boys tried with Damiano Caruso in the first part of the race and then in the final with Mohoric, who went clear to chase Marczynski, leading the race until 6km to go.
“Our boys rode aggressively today” Team Sports Director Rik Verbrugghe comments “Unfortunately we had again bad luck with the crash of Bole and in particular Pozzovivo”. In fact the Italian rider crashed badly and he was transported in ambulance to Huy hospital. Luckily he had any skull and vertebral fractures. He suffered facial trauma and concussion. Multiple abrasions on shoulder, elbow, hip knee and face.
“Pozzovivo will join us at the team hotel and then we will evaluate his condition ahead of the Liège” Verbrugghe explains and about today’s race he adds “We rode pretty well, with Caruso into the breakaway and then Mohoric in the final. Teuns tried to take a good result and in a moment he seemed he could finish in the top five but he missed the legs. In general, the team rode well and we were present today”.
