Challenge Ciclista A Mallorca
Trofeo Migjorn - Stage Details

Leigh Howard sprinted to victory at Trofeo Migjorn on the second day of the Challenge Majorca. Having reviewed the race finish ahead of today’s start, the team committed and perfectly executed a plan to put Howard up for the win.

“Neil Stephens, Julian Dean, Marc Quod and I looked at the finish this morning in the car. We knew it would be a crazy, hectic and potentially dangerous sprint. I’m glad we had the preview. It allowed us to formulate a plan that we stuck to almost to a T. I come out on top because everyone did their jobs. The team has given me a great opportunity here and put a lot of faith in me. It’s nice to repay them.” - Leigh Howard
