Ralph Trubee fastest in Groningen - Paramaribo

  The activity in the peloton was high in Groningen - Paramaribo. Several riders attempted to break away. When the peloton passed the first 13 km, Øivind Øien (Brubakkane CK), Ralph Trubee, (Gominola) and Yoeri Paschiers (fvtende) launched an attack. The peloton didn't take the attack too serious, which resulted in the trio fighting for the stage win. Ralph Trubee won the sprint in the group, and became the happy winner of Groningen - Paramaribo. Yoeri Paschiers was second, and Øivind Øien third.
Today's stage fit well for me - I simply had to try my luck. And see what happened?, said a smiling Ralph Trubee. The winner had no other comments, he quickly went to the team bus in order to celebrate the win.
Pablo, manager of Gominola, was happy with the result: The whole team did well today. Everything turned out as we hoped, and luckily, Ralph Trubee was the strongest rider out there today. The proud manager didn't hide that he was satisfied with Ralph Trubee's result. Ralph Trubee 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 Pablo.
