Vattenfall Cyclassics - Race Overview

Late attacks by ORICA-GreenEDGE animated the Cyclassic (Vattenfall) one day race in Germany today.  Simon Clarke launched a solo attack with 4.5km left in the race and Michael Albasini tested his chances with a lone push with less than three kilometres remaining.

"The big thing in the race today was a massive pile up around the 50km to go mark" explained sports director Matt White.   "There were 35 or so guys in the crash, that ended the race for a lot of them. After that, the bunch was only about 50 riders."
