Thursday, Jul 23, 2020 in Pro Cycling

Sensational start in Romania for German BIKE AID squad! The first big professional race after the Corona restart and BIKE AID rider Nikodemus Holler storms with a huge surprise into the yellow jersey after vicotry in the very technical prologue of Sibiu Tour (UCI 2.1)

The opening stage, a prologue on cobblestones in the old town of Sibiu, was made for the technically strong Holler. He was one of the first starters and also benefited from the later rain. No other rider was able to beat his time. He beat the big names of the Bora Hansgrohe team, such as Ackermann, Mühlberger and Konrad.

On tomorrow's stage, the riders can expect a mountain mountain top finish at the 2,200m high Balea Lac after 183 km. Nikodemus Holler and his team will tackle the stage in the overall leader's jersey, which will be a major challenge for the German team given the strong line-up.
