Naim Al-'Ejla rides to victory


  The tough and steep time trial, Mt. Washington ITT (Stage 5 of Race of the Minutemen), was very exciting, as nothing was termined before the final riders finished. Coll Gilzean (Glasgow United) set the best time when he finished the stage, while Johannes Kunuk (Schiavi di Don) came in only a few seconds slower. As everyone thought Coll Gilzean would win, the split times suddenly showed that one of the last 5 riders had the possibility of winning. Naim Al-'Ejla of Brzeszcze ended up beating Coll Gilzean with no more than 5 seconds, which insured him the stage win on the steep time trial.
Brzeszcze's Naim Al-'Ejla didn't hide his joy when winning the 5th stage. It's incredible. I didn't expect this at all. I just wanted to try, I aimed for being 5th or 6th, but suddenly I was in the lead! said the happy winner.
Brzeszcze's manager, Sany, was satisfied after the result. Naim Al-'Ejla did very well today. Everything turned out as we planned it, and Naim Al-'Ejla had the power to win, said the manager.
