Going into the Eneco Tour, Tinkoff-Saxo said that they were targeting stage wins but after another good performance by Nikolai Trusov in today's hectic stage, the team may now be targeting the GC. By making the split in the finale, the Russian sprinter moved into 7th in the overall standings.

 

Tinkoff-Saxo had modest ambitions at the start of this year's Eneco Tour and claimed that their main goal was a stage win. In the first two stages, however, Nikolai Trusov, Matti Breschel, Jay McCarthy and Karsten Kroon have all shown solid condition and this may prompt the team to change its plans.

 

Today Trussov made it into the front group in the very hectic second stage while the latter three all stayed in the peloton. Trusov is now 7th in the GC and sports director Fabrizio Guidi will now evaluate things after tomorrow's time trial.

 

“It was a difficult stage with rain that was coming and going, making the surface very treacherous with numerous crashes as a consequence," Guidi said. "There were a lot of turns in the finale and the cobbled run-in to the finish line really put pressure on the field, which was divided in clutches of riders and we managed to put Nikolay up there with the best of them and he’s now seventh overall. Tomorrow, the riders are going full gas because the time gaps are not that bad that an overall good result is out of reach for a couple of our guys”.
