After July being an action-packed month across all three programs, things were a little quieter at the beginning of August. But it wouldn’t be long until the next big highlights would animate our TV screens once again.
Firstly, our Men’s program finished the journey to Poland with a couple of solid day results, that saw Oscar Onley finishing in 10th place in the general classification, a nice accomplishment for the Scottish rider and the team.
Speaking of Scotland, the World Championships in and around Glasgow were marked in the calendars of quite some Team dsm-firmenich riders, as they represented their countries to fight for the famous rainbow jerseys.
Some well-known faces were in the mix in the men’s road race as Matt Dinham and Kevin Vermaerke made the jump into the breakaway on the testing parcours and showed themselves between the very best. While Kevin had to let go after a strong ride, Matt joined the group of favourites and then finished in a great seventh position for Australia. John Degenkolb also had a solid day finishing 16th just a few positions ahead of Kevin who finished in 20th.
