Laurenz Rex takes the win in Rucphen

Circus-ReUz-Technord takes it all

The Continental Development team participated with twelve riders in two races this weekend, the Dorpenomloop Rucphen, second race of the Holland Cup, and the second edition of the Get Up Cup Aywaille in the Ardennes.

Under the direction of Dimitri Claeys, Laurenz Rex obtained the first UCI victory of Circus-ReUz-Technord and as a professional rider in a sprint with three in the streets of Sint Willebrord, by preceding the peloton in which his teammate Axel Huens crossed the line in sixth place. 

« I'm so happy to achieve my first professional victory, especially after the bad luck I had in January and February. Two weeks ago, I hurt my knee in a crash in Omloop het Nieuwsblad. After a week of rest, my trainer Christophe Prémont planned a simulation of a stage race with four intense training sessions and today's race with Circus-ReUz-Technord in Rucphen. I knew that this series would be good for my condition, but at the other hand I felt the fatigue and I preferred to be prudent in this kind of nervous race. In the end, with 20 kilometer to go I managed to attack with two other riders and sprint for the victory just ahead of the peloton. » « This success is a result of the excellent collaboration between Circus-ReUz-Technord and Intermarché-Circus-Wanty. I know the riders of our Development team very well, because after our common training camp in December I joined them in Alicante in February to prepare the season. All are motivated to learn and to make progression. Today again it pleased me to guide the young riders as a captain. The atmosphere is identical as in the World Team. I was welcomed in the same way as the U23 rider are when they race with the pros. Together, our two teams form one big family. »
