Germany Tour Victory

Written by TD rockets at 18:10 7/7-2024

  Sweden Björn Lööf - GC 1st
  Belgium Alfons Hovelynck - GC 33rd
  Australia Eamon Lowe - GC 32nd
  Brazil Miguel Lourenço - GC 38th
  France James Bonnet - GC 26th
  Andorra Ovidi Aguilar - GC 41st
  
  Our wildcard earned from last seasons podium gave us a chance to return to Germany Tour. A season of preparation meant we arrived in the best possible condition.
  
  We brought the same team as the last edition, with strong climbers and all rounders ready to keep Loof safe across all stages. Loofs form showed early, with two wins in the first two mountain stages. We didn’t think it could get much better …
  
  A second place on the king stage was then followed by a strong TT performance. Loof stood on the top step of the podium in Berlin wearing the yellow jersey - what a performance by the team!
  
  Now to try and finish the season strongly!
