Get Up Cup

One and two for Circus-ReUz-Technord in Get Up Cup

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.

In the province of Liège, the young group directed by Kévin Van Melsen and Christophe Prémont realized the double at the end of a perfectly managed race. Alexy Faure won solo, on wet roads, ahead of his teammate Francesco Busatto after attacking on the final climb on the hilly local circuit.

« After the last pull of Sacha, I lead the peloton on the final climb aiming to lead Francesco to the victory. But I noticed that only one competitor was left in his slipstream with 1.5 kilometer to go. So I attacked to increase our chances on the victory. In the end, I managed to stay in the lead and Francesco was indeed the fastest a couple of seconds later. I won the two Belgian races in which I participated this season, what a start it has been! My transition to the U23 category is going pretty well, thanks to my trainer Christophe Prémont and my team Circus-ReUz-Technord. As an U23 rider you can't wish for a better environment to develop! »

« Circus-ReUz-Technord was definitely the strongest team today. We perfectly executed our tactics today by provoking the selection in the peloton in the final and surviving with three guys in the final. It was a perfect scenario for Alexy Faure, Sacha Prestianni and myself. Alexy attacked on the final climb when we were only four riders anymore. I also managed to get rid of our two competitors of Lotto-Dstny to take second place behind my teammate. It was my first U23 race of the season and together we managed to achieve a better result as expected. My form is excellent after one month of racing with Intermarché-Circus-Wanty. I will again wear the jersey of the World Team this Wednesday for Milano-Torino. »
