Eneco Tour
Stage 5: Riemst to Sittard-Geleen - Stage Details

In-form Magnus Cort has put in another strong performance at the Eneco Tour, taking third place on stage five, as heavy rain affected the latter part of the race, which was won by Johan Le Bon (FDJ).

The 180km lumpy course, which was like a mini Amstel Gold Race, produced an exciting day of racing, and after heavy rain started to fall with about 25km to go, the peloton split apart as they tried to catch a two-man breakaway.

“You have to be really pleased when your rider does their thing” said sport director Laurenzo Lapage. “Despite tricky conditions, the race went like we had hoped and we were very happy with Magnus’ third place.”
