First podium spot of 2012!

31 January 2012

In the first European professional race of 2012, Team Vacansoleil-DCM was close to victory with Marco Marcato!

 

The 148 kilometre Grand Prix Cycliste La Marseillaise ended with a sprint of a group of 15 riders where Marcato was not able to beat Samuel Dumoulin of Cofidis. 

Bert-Jan Lindeman represented the team in the breakaway of the race which lasted until 20 kilometres for the finish. Lieuwe Westra, who pulled the sprint for Marcato, finished 15th en Björn Leukemans crossed the finish as 17th.

 

The results of this race are promising for the spring classics!
