Eneco Tour
Stage 6: Ardooie - Ardooie - Stage Details

Recap:

ORICA-GreenEDGE dominated the Eneco Tour stage six time trial. Svein Tuft powered to victory with an untouchable time of 20:25 over the 17.4 kilometer course to take his first WorldTour individual win of the season. The Canadian powerhouse leads the Benelux race after the penultimate stage. 

The decisive time trial left ORICA-GreenEDGE well-positioned ahead of the final stage of racing. Both Luke Durbridge and Jens Mouris posted top-ten finishes on the stage and Sebastian Langeveld gives ORICA-GreenEDGE a fourth rider in the general classification top ten in sixth place, 37 down on Tuft.

“We’re in a really good position with four riders in the top six,” noted Tuft. “This gives us a lot to play with, and they’re all really strong guys. At this point, we haven’t discussed a plan for tomorrow yet, but we have options when we have numbers on our side. I’m expecting a good battle.”
