11 August 2016

Race: Czech Cycling Tour, Stage 1 (TTT)

Start/Finish: Frydek / Mistek

Distance: 17.3 kilometers 

MistekCzech RepublicTeam Novo Nordisk took to their Colnago K-zero time trial bikes for Friday’s opening stage of the four-day Czech Cycling Tour, a 17.3-kilometer team time trial from Frydek to Mistek.

“It was an interesting day of racing,” Team Novo Nordisk rider David Lozano said. “This is only our third ever team time trial, so our coordination wasn’t the best. But the power reflected on my Pioneer power meter was good, so I’m feeling confident for upcoming stages and hope to show something good! The team is motivated, and we hope for a good week here in Czech Republic!”

“For some of the team,” said veteran Team Novo Nordisk rider Chris Williams, “it was their first team time trial. And for Brian Kamstra, it was his first time trial ever! So just we wanted to stay upright and finish all together. Now our goal for the upcoming days is to set up our climbers. There will be a lot of climbing and stages that suit guys like Javier Megias, David Lozano and Charles Planet.”
