Whether in Ireland or Eritrea, the riders of the team from Saarland raced spread over the globe on an exciting weekend.
At the preparatory race for the Tour de France, the Route d'Occitanie, in the French Pyrenees, the mammoth programme of the team from Saarland reached its climax.
Over five days the boys of the Saarland team showed a great performance against a world class field of riders! Unfortunately, the race came to a rather unpleasant end.
Within 11 days, the team went to France twice. The four-day stage races Tour de la Mirabelle and La Ronde de l'Oise were on the agenda.
One weekend. Two prestigious one-day races. Strong competition and weather that really offered everything!
A great race, but one that claimed its victims: Even before the start, plans had to be changed at short notice. A few crashes later, three of five BIKE AID riders finished the tour.
Three days in the breakaway, making life difficult for Quintana on the climbs and in the end only seconds away from winning the team classification.
In Thailand, BIKE AID had hoped for more, but is grateful for the fantastic impressions.
After three very successful months with BIKE AID, Henok Mulubrhan fulfills his dream and joins a UCI Pro team from April 1st 2022 to set his sights on the Giro.
Last Sunday the seven-day stage race ended in northern France. With summer temperatures, some of the best cycling culture and history was experienced here!
