Pieter Weening gave Roompot – Charles Cycling Team a beautiful win on day 3 of the Tour de Luxembourg. The team’s most experienced rider attacked on the last climb and managed to stay ahead of the sprinting bunch to claim a stunning solo victory!
Huub Duyn expected something from Pieter Weening in this Tour of Luxembourg, he said so in the run-up to the race. He referred to the Saturday stage, but the 38-year-old Frisian surprised the whole bunch on Friday! Weening left his fellow escapee behind on the last uphill section of the stage and had a two second bonus on the finish line over the chasing peloton behind him.
A stunning victory! “It was all-or-nothing” said Weening. “And it resulted in a win.” During the stage also Huub Duyn and Maurits Lammertink weer seen at the front. And with the excellent sixth place of Sjoerd van Ginneken in the Thursday stage in mind, the Tour of Luxembourg has already been more than successful for Roompot – Charles!
