Erwin Szewczyk has success in Thun-Thun

  The activity in the peloton was high in Thun-Thun. Several riders attempted to break away. When the peloton passed the first 10 km, Wilnes Mathiot (Zieleman Zadelzitters), Erwin Szewczyk, (Drapeau Noir) and Matijs Morissen (Boonen en co) launched an attack. The peloton didn't take the attack too serious, which resulted in the trio fighting for the stage win. Erwin Szewczyk won the sprint in the group, and became the happy winner of Thun-Thun. Matijs Morissen was second, and Wilnes Mathiot third.
The stage today was perfect for me. I felt good in my legs, and when the attack got launched, I had a feeling that I could do this, said Erwin Szewczyk to the interviewers and continued: I couldn't have done this without my team or my manager; they have a just a big part in this win as me.
Drapeau Noir's manager, Delion, was satisfied after the result in Thun-Thun. Erwin Szewczyk did very well today. Everything turned out as we planned it, and Erwin Szewczyk had the power to win, said the manager.
