I had a very good feeling almost all day today.
We had three laps in the end and with two uphills. I felt strong and made sure to be front at the last kilometers. I kept my tempo and arrived 19th. My goal was to be in the top 20 in the GC and I did 19th. I am happy with the result and my performance. The team did a great job: I had Andrea and Charles trying to bring me in a good position and they all supported me.
I have the national championship on Sunday and then we’ll head to Tour of Hungary with the team.

Today’s stage was very fast. Rain and windy roads added an extra challenge. All our guys stayed with the main group all the way to the final circuits.
There was a good team effort and support for Peter. The main group started splitting with last three finishing laps and Peter was able to stay with the first riders.
We are very happy with his 19th place in GC.
On Saturday, August 29th the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team will continue to show what’s possible with diabetes on Stage 1 at Tour de Hungrie.
