Quick Step wins first stage in California

Tour of California: Stage 1 #91

Quick Step Floors started great at the Tour of California. The team of Styby won the first stage with sprinter Marcel Kittel. “Great that we took the win with Marcel and that it all worked out as planned”, our favorite said.

“The second stage was damn hard. Definitely harder than I expected. It was a short stage of 144 kilometers, but we did 4 hours to reach the finish line. We even spend more time in the camper, because we had to drive 1,5 hours to the start and afterwards 3,5 hours to the hotel…”

Rafal Majka won the second stage and takes over the leader’s jersey of Kittel. Tomorrow there will be another flat stage and a new chance for the German teammate of Styby.
