Aleksy Adamczyk wins in Jamaica


  Even though several riders tried to break away, no one managed to keep it going in Kingston - Black Hill. The strongest riders in the peloton stayed together in the leading group. The finishing climb became a secretion of riders, until Aleksy Adamczyk (Team Watchers) and Byron Whitson (Druid) were alone in the front. As it looked as they were heading for a sprint on the top, Byron Whitson suddenly could follow Aleksy Adamczyk who climbed the final kilometre alone. The audience cheered as Aleksy Adamczyk crossed the line with his arms raised high. Byron Whitson came in a little later as second. The third place were terminated by a group of 4 who sprinted a long. Lincoln Seidel was fastest in the group, and safely took the third place.
I'm happy the team picked me for the stage. I knew I could do it (win), and I wanted to prove it as well, said the happy winner who continued with a smile on his face: My preparations were perfect, I had a perfect day, and I won!.
The manager of Team Watchers was proud of his rider today. Aleksy Adamczyk has been training and preparing himself for this race. It's an important victory - both for Aleksy Adamczyk but also for the team.
