Ayman Dawud battles to victory


  Ayman Dawud was the fastest rider in the peloton when Kovali - Kovali was coming to an end. Ayman Dawud speeded up and managed to get several meters ahead of the competitors in the ordinary sprint. Behind him was Jürgen Lindberg, STORM cycling team, struggling with Joannes Dauwen from KVM ProCycling Team. Joannes Dauwen saw his competitor get across the finishing line only a few miliseconds before himself, while both of them could only watch while Ayman Dawud raised his hands for the victory.
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.
Jacques Streelers, manager of KVM ProCycling Team, was happy with the result: The whole team did well today. Everything turned out as we hoped, and luckily, Ayman Dawud was the strongest rider out there today. The proud manager didn't hide that he was satisfied with Ayman Dawud's result. Ayman Dawud 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 Jacques Streelers.
