The 24-year-old from Sondrio produced a strong sprint on the second day of the competition.

One week after his Okolo Slovenska stage victory, Andrea Bagioli was again in contention, this time at the longest stage of the Tour de Luxembourg, which covered 183.9 kilometers from Mondorf-les-Bains to Mamer. Despite the up-and-down route, the day was billed as being one for the fast men, and as a result, several teams joined hands to chase the breakaway.

Soudal Quick-Step sent Mauri Vansevenant to the front of the peloton, before bringing a larger continent in the final part of the stage. Julian Alaphilippe tried to make a selection with seven kilometers to go, and even though the others responded, our team remained near the upper part of the bunch, with the same Alaphilippe and Dries Devenyns, who worked to position Andrea Bagioli.

“The sprint was made a bit chaotic by the rain, but the team did a good job and helped me enter the final corner in a good position. We started the sprint a bit early and I gave my best there, getting a solid top five. This gives me confidence for Friday’s stage, which is going to be much harder”, Andrea said.
