Second Day of Bad Luck for Spiders in Belgium at Druivenkoers Overijse – Full Results

report by SpiderTech powered by C10

August 22, 2012 (Overijse, Belgium) – A second day of bad luck in Belgium has left Team SpiderTech powered by C10 more motivated than ever. Racing well requires good equipment, good form, good tactics and a dash of good luck. Miss one and your day can be over.

Thanks to Argon 18, Pro and Shimano, Team SpiderTech has the equipment covered, the riders’ form is there and the team went into the Druivenkoers Overijse with a great plan, but the results simply didn’t materialize.

The 193-km race played out more or less exactly as anticipated, but what was lacking was luck – or more precisely, avoiding bad luck.

The race opened with three big 30-km laps and when the early break of three riders went, it was perfect for the team as it kept the race stabilized going into the eight 9-km finishing laps where the race was to play out.

An 11-rider break got away that included six WorldTour riders – three from Vaconsoleil, one from Lotto-Belisol and two from Astana . Guillaume Boivin of Team SpiderTech recognized this could be the winning move and bridged across, but his chain dropped on a cobbled climb before he could make contact. Parisien also tried to get across as part of a nine-rider chase group, but the move was short-lived. Martin Gilbert also suffered a mechanical on the cobbles that took him out of the race.

The breakaway stayed away to the end and Bjorn Leukemans (Vacansoleil-DCM) won his third consecutive Druivenkoers.

Team SpiderTech was very active in the final circuits and having finish riders finish in the main field showed we have strength and depth. The boys are even more motivated for Sunday’s Schaal-Sels, also in Belgium.
