Gloag strong in final of mountain stage Tour of Valencia
Tom Gloag helped colour the finale of the second stage of the Tour of Valencia. ...
Team Jumbo-Visma has played a modest role in the second stage of the CRO Race. The stage win again went to Italian sprinter Jonathan Milan. All riders in yellow and black crossed the finish line safely in Zadar.
Seven riders attacked early in the stage, but that attempt caused Team Jumbo-Visma little concern. The classification and sprinters' teams kept control on the hilly roads and the attackers were caught a few kilometres from the finish line. In the hectic final, his teammates supported Jonas Vingegaard well.
Sports director Marc Reef: "The task was to get across the line in one piece and we managed. Tomorrow will be a completely different day. That's a stage for the classification riders. The finish is very tricky, so I expect the classification teams in front there. We want to drop Jonas off in a good position and go for success with him."
"Following a break from racing, Milan and Jonas are in excellent condition."
The sports director watched Vingegaard and Milan Vader return to the peloton. "Following a break from racing, Milan and Jonas are in excellent condition. Jonas demonstrated it on the climb yesterday and Milan has already experienced well what it's like to ride in the peloton again. They both made it through the first few days, so we are now eagerly anticipating the upcoming stages where there will be more climbing to do."
