2nd for the Norwegian in sprint finale
May 17, 2021:
Alexander Kristoff came within touching distance of victory at the Trofeo Alcudia-Port d'Alcudia (1.1) yesterday, coming in second place to wrap up a very successful week of racing at the Challenge Mallorca.
Kristoff: “It was a good race and I felt strong. The team did a good job to control the attacks from the start and not let any big groups go away. I was in a decent position for the sprint but in the final I just couldn't get around Greipel. It's been a long week here in Mallorca with some very good results so we're heading to the next races satisfied. I'm confident that my shape is going the right way and I'm motivated for the next races.”
The podium place of Kristoff concludes an eventful week which saw a victory on the opening day for Ryan Gibbons in the Trofeo Calvia (1.1), second place for Vegard Stake Laengen at the Trofeo Andratx – Mirador des Colomer (1.1) and fifth for Kristoff at the Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana (1.1).
