Volta A Portugal 🇵🇹 : ICA IMPRESSIVE JOURNEY Under the Radar...

Volta A Portugal 🇵🇹 :


Under the Radar , the tough as nails group we sent to the Tour Of Portugal - are doing pretty well.

Just look at the results sheet till this morning before we set to start the 7th stage:

Stage 1 : August Jensen - 4th

Stage 3: August Jensen - 3rd

Stage 5 : Zak Dempster: 3rd

Stage 6: Ben Perry 2nd.

After losing our GC man Alex Cataford, his teammates were setting their sights on a stage win, riding aggressively, getting into breakaways and overcoming climbs for selective sprints.

Zak Dempster, our Australian veteran leader has been a driving force throughout and capped it with a 3rd place in a winning breakaway group.

But yesterday we came really close with a great performance of the whole team and especially Canadian Ben Perry,

The guys with the help of Israeli Omer Goldstein ( some hard but unlucky efforts to get into breakaways ) closed an early breakaway. Then it was Perry’s turn :
The Canadian got into a new breakaway, and 9 km to the finish he escaped solo ...

“I thought he is going to win it” admitted our Spanish Director Oscar Guerrero.

But ...

Let’s give the chance to Perry to describe what took place :


“Unfortunately it was a shallow descent and headwind so my max 20 second advantage disappeared with 1.5km to go but only one rider caught me.

I got a kilometre to sit on his wheel but I was really suffering. I was confident for the sprint but unfortunately I hit something in the last corner and slid and lost the wheel. I made up some ground on him but I was still suffering from my solo attack and I ended up 2nd place, bad luck. But I want to thank my team for such a great work and congratulate winner Hector Saez.”

4 stages left. We will try again.
