Tour de Yorkshire 2: Fast Finishing In York

Embedded image permalinkFast stage finishing in York. 8 riders in a break-away - Tennant (WIG), De Backer (Giant), Steels (Topsport), Bernaudeau (EUR), Brammeier (MTN), Edet (Cofidis), Slik (Roompot) and McNally (Madison Genesis) - then two leading ahead as Bert DeBacker went away with McNally. 22 km to go the peloton is 1'10 behind.
35" left for Bert DeBacker and McNally 10km to go. DeBacker is solo 3 km to go. Caught at the last km. Bunch sprint. MORENO HOFLAND!

Moreno Hofland: 
Embedded image permalink“I’m very pleased that we are now rid of the hateful nil. I had a difficult start of the season, things didn’t go as planned, but hopefully we can keep this trend going. I was already full of morale, but this gives me an extra boost in the run-up to the Giro d’Italia. It would be great if I can do something like this again over there in Italy. I sat in Robert Wagner’s wheel for the final 40 kilometres. He dropped me off at the front for the sprint. After that, I chose to follow Pelluchi. I waited until the 200 metres sign and then used my speed to pass the others. It was not normal. All those fans! In some villages, people were three or four rows deep. Very cool!”

Lars van der Haar:
"WAUW, what a crowds at @letouryorkshire. I love it! Did my first leadout for @RSinkeldam today. #Scary! But he got 3th, so good Team effort."

Jempy Drucker:
"Thanks to the @BMCProTeam boys keeping me upfront today on this hectic final.#TourDeYorkshire again impressed of the many crowds out there 👍"

Bert De Backer:

"I felt ready to take a victory home,but the bunch had something different in mind. At least I have some extra experience to take home! #TdY"
