What's Cool In Road Cycling

In Ljubljana, Malori 5th in the opening time trial

Malori missed the chance of a seasonal hat trick in the individual time trial in Ljubljana, 8,8 km of length.
The first stage of Tour de Slovenia, in fact, was won by Tuft, while LAMPRE-MERIDA’s Italian cyclist (victories in Coppi e Bartali and Bayern Rundfahrt time trials) completed the course in 16″ more than Canadian timing.

Very good performance by Richeze, 8th.

“Short and fast time trial, with a technical final part and most of the last kilometer on cobblestones – Malori explained – I could not start on a fast pace, so I was on late to Tuft.

I raised the speed and I succeeded in reach half course on the same time of the Canadian, but then I could not be so fast and I lost seconds in the final technical part.

I would have preferred to obtain a victory in view of the Italian championship, that will still be my next main target”.

1- Tuft 9’55”

3- Oveckin 10’02”
4- Langeveld 10’08”
5- Malori 10’11”
