Good European start Vacansoleil team
12 September 2011
n the France stage race Etoile de Besseges the Vacansoleil guys were close to a victory.
It started with a third place in the first stage for Björn Leukemans. In the third stage Johnny Hoogerland and Marco Marcato finished on second and third place in the stage. After this stage Hoogerland also had the leaders jersey and Marcato was third in the general classification.
Unfortunately both riders were not able to hold on to the leaders jersey in the final stages where the differences were only a few seconds.
Marcato ended second in the general classification just before Hoogerland! The gap between the Vacansoleil guys and winner Anthony Ravard was only 7 seconds.
