Josef Barting outrun his competitors

  Josef Barting, Andeby, was the fastest rider among the participants in the individual time trial race, (Stage 9 of Volta ao Porto). Josef Barting was incredible fast on the final kilometres, as he was only second at the last split time. Infront of him was Zalom's Fred Skog who became second overall on the stage. Another interesting name was Uwe Gassner from Sicco who started out with an incredible tempo, which he of course couldn't keep going. He lost many important seconds on the second part of the route, which moved him to the third place overall.
Josef Barting wasn't surprised after winning Stage 9. I simply knew I could do it. I felt good all day, and I gave everything I had, said the confident winner.
The manager of Andeby was proud of his rider today. Josef Barting has been training and preparing himself for this race. It's an important victory - both for Josef Barting but also for the team.
