Aidis Kruopis and Jens Keukeleire have moved into the top ten on general classification at the Eneco Tour, finishing in a select front group on stage two today.
It was another stressful day on the road as the peloton tackled heavy rain and a technical run in to the finish.
Finishing behind stage winner Zdenek Štybar (OPQ), Kruopis and Keukeleire were amongst the front group for the second consecutive stage crossing the line in 12th and 13th respectively.
“It shows they are going pretty well and that Jens has recovered well after the Tour,” sport director Matt Wilson said.
