ANDALUCIA BIKE RACE: FIRST VICTORY FOR DANIEL GEISMAYR WITH TEAM TREK PIRELLI
Great day for Team Trek Pirelli today with the victory of Daniel Geismayr teamed up with Samuele Porro in the second stage of Andalucia Bike Race. The two riders are now the leaders of the general classification of the Spanish stage race, setting out a nice tone for the rest of the season.
This Victory being Daniel’s first big success under the Trek Pirelli colors will definitely be a great confidence booster for the next events to come!
Daniel and Samuele’s after the stage: “Today was a really tactical stage, we stayed in first group but without pushing hard, the pace wasn’t so high and we decided to take it easy because the weather was really hot and we were afraid of heat strokes. On the last short and steep climb we were feeling really good so we decided to attack. It was a hard one and we managed to open a small gap from our contenders. We were not expecting the leader’s jersey so we are happy about this. Tomorrow’s stage will be more technical and we need to defend the jersey, but we are feeling good“.
A Top10 race also for Rabensteiner/Casagrande’s team who finished the 2nd stage in 8th position.
