Circuit Franco-Belge - Race Overview

Recap:

Jurgen Roelands (Lotto-Belisol) won the opening stage of the four day race in the Wallonie and Picardie regions of Belgium and France and managed to defend the race leader's jersey through the final day of racing. With support from the team, Aidis Kruopis factored into the bunch sprints on the second and third stages of the race.

"Overall, the team rode an organized race. They stuck to the plans we set during our meetings, and we came close to a victory with Aidis. He finished third and fourth on stages and seventh overall. We can be satisfied with what the team accomplished." - Sports Director Laurenzo Lapage
