Elija Zhili outrun his competitors

  Elija Zhili, Drapeau Noir, had it all when the ending of Fuga dal Vesuvio was near. With a perfect position in the peloton, all he had to do was timing his sprint - and he succeeded. As he raised his arms, he could look back and see Hektor Jansson and Mickael van Asseldonk fighting for the second and third place several metres behind himself.
As we got close to the finishing line, I suddeny realized I had my chance today said a surprised winner. When the other sprinters launched the sprint, I just followed along, and I even managed pass them in the end.
Delion, manager of Drapeau Noir, was happy with the result: The whole team did well today. Everything turned out as we hoped, and luckily, Elija Zhili was the strongest rider out there today. The proud manager didn't hide that he was satisfied with Elija Zhili's result. Elija Zhili did well. No one deserved the victory more than him. He put his focus on this stage long ago, and he kept his motivation high. I'm happy for him and the team, said Delion.
