After kicking off the week in style with the 1-2 victory, Team DSM just missed out on finishing the ZLM Tour the way it started. On the final day of the race, Sam Welsford sprinted into second place, after his teammates brought him into the final in good position.
As in the days before, a pancake flat day waited for the riders with the Dutch winds always an unpredictable factor for the race. When a breakaway of three got clear, things stayed relatively calm in the peloton. Coming closer to the finale, Team DSM helped to close the gap to the escapees, while looking after each other and saving energy for the fast finish. When the break was caught, some riders tried their luck with a late attack, but everything was brought back together. With a sprint on the cards, Welsford took 2nd place; a nice conclusion to five days of racing on home soil for the team. Sam Welsford and Nils Eekhoff both finished on the podium in the general classification and Alex Edmondson got fourth in the end, while Team DSM won the team classification.
