Tour de Romandie
April 30th – May 5th
WEDNESDAY, 01 MAY 2019 Neuchâtel > La Chaux-de-Fonds, 168.4k. Hilly.
Mission of the day was to defend the overall leader’s jersey of Jan Tratnik and to try to take a good result with our sprinter Sonny Colbrelli. But unfortunately the Slovenian Champion had to say goodbye to the yellow jersey and the Italian rider dropped in the finale.
Sports Director Vladimir Miholjević comments: “We tried to defend the overall leadership today and also to bring Sonny Colbrelli to contest the sprint, but due to the hard finale it was not really realistic. He was in the first group, but then dropped on the climb with 15km to the finish. He fought, but he couldn’t manage to keep the pace se by Thomas. Our riders controlled the race and tried to keep the overall jersey. All guys put 100% effort”.
Primoz Roglic took the win and both the overall leadership.
