Daniel Schorn in second place in the Omloop van Het Houtland Lichtervelde
In the last Belgian race of the season for Team NetApp – Endura, the 199.5 kilometer Omloop van Het Houtland in Lichtervelde, Daniel Schorn took second place in another top result. The 25 year old Austrian was part of the lead group for a long time and reached the finish line two seconds behind Jelle Wallays (Topsport Vlaanderen – Baloise), who surprised his breakaway colleagues 1000 meters before the finish. Michael Schwarzmann reached the finish line with the peloton 37 seconds after the winner.
“We experienced a really difficult race today with rain and strong wind, which we impacted offensively as announced. Daniel was there in all critical attacks and was not only strong, but very clever as well. The subsequent winner attacked at the 1000 meter mark. Daniel responded with a long sprint and was rewarded with a super second place,” says a delighted Sport Director André Schulze about how the race turned out.
