Limited loss in the time trial

Limited loss in the time trial

In the Eneco Tour there was a time trial of 9 kilometers on the program today. As a little was expected Zdenek lost his jersey. “I am now where I thought to stand after this time trial. So there is nothing lost.”

Tom Dumoulin was the big favorite in Breda and won by beating Fabian Cancellara with two seconds. Styby, who started in the leader’s jersey after his stage win yesterday, lost 32 seconds and lost his jersey to Lars Boom.

“I had expected that I would lose a half minute to Dumoulin. So I may be satisfied. Nothing has been lost, because I am still fifth in the general classification. Tomorrow there is a flat stage, followed by three difficult stages with lots of climbs.”
