Que Nam Hong wins Giro di Vicenza

Written by Universal Soup at 04:18 5/8-2020

  in his first race as captain Que Nam Hong has brought home the trophy belonging to the Giro di Vicenza classic. In this 75th edition there was some tough competition from Niels Albertsen who was in Top Form and Peter Pirine who ended second and third respectively.
  
  The whole team worked hard to make sure Que Nam Hong would be in the best position possible for the final climb of Monte Grappa. This monstrous climb of 19km at an average of 8,1% gradient is the last "hurdle" to the finish line. Wang Tuan Lam was the first rider to start this climb and lead Que Nam Hong on to the climb at a blistering pace. This ensured most of the competitors that were still left were forced to fall behind. Only Ivo Pavlov, Agafon Tsiolkovsky, Niels Albertsen and Peter Pirini were able to follow.
  
  5km before the finish line Que Nam Hong started his attack and only Niels Albertsen was able to follow. Fortunately for us at 1km before the finish Que Nam Hong was able to speed up once more leaving behind Niels Albertsen and ensuring the victory. Wang Tuan Lam used most of his powers to help position Que Nam Hong and couldn't race the other members of the chasing group anymore but still ended on a respectable 6th spot.
  
  Que Nam Hong is one of only two riders who have experience at another team and was brought in as a tour talent for 65.000. Now that he is starting to fulfill his potential, he is deemed ready to captain the team. After the Tour of Khakassia he will continue training to make him an even stronger rider and climbing and tour captain for Universal Soup.
