Polga Finishes in Top 20 at Stage 4 of Tour of Bulgaria

31 August 2023

The fourth stage of the Tour of Bulgaria was once again a hot and hard day for the riders. The 114km route from Burgas to Silven featured a number of strong crosswinds, which made it difficult to stay in the front of the pack.

Team Novo Nordisk Development had a solid showing on the day and scored a top 20 finish with Antonio Polga in the 15th place.

Sergey Lagutin, Development Team Head Coach:

“Today was a typical flat sprinters stage. I warned the riders to pay attention to the crosswind and position themselves well for the finale. Antonio stayed in the front for the last kilometer and was able to avoid a massive crash. He sprinted for a top 20 position and finished in 15th place.”

“I’m proud of Antonio’s performance today. He showed great determination and skill and it was amazing to see him finish in the top 20. I’m confident about tomorrow’s last stage with a hilly course. We’ll be looking to get a good result and finish the Tour of Bulgaria on a high note.”
