Walscheid takes the 8th place of the Qhubeka ASSOS team during the first stage of the Giro d’Italia

Max Walscheid had a superb performance during the first stage of the 104th Giro d’Italia to finish in 8th place and set a milestone for Team Qhubeka ASSOS ‘( ambitions during the 2021 event.

Walscheid’s performance, in which he finished 19 seconds behind eventual stage winner Filippo Ganna (IGD), was the culmination of a great outing for the team, which placed 5th overall. of the team competition on the first day.

The short 8.6km course through Turin saw a lot of power imposed by the peloton and it was ultimately the domination of Ganna, the world champion, who missed a comfortable winner by 10 seconds ahead of Edoardo Affini (TJV) .

Domenico Pozzovivo also impressed with an excellent 21st place, closely followed by Victor Campenaerts, who chose to take the first place of the day for our team. The Belgian was the third to come off the starting ramp and briefly held the first time of the day before being usurped by Roger Kluge.

Additionally, before the start of the individual time trial, hour-time world record holder Campenaerts conducted his pre-race routine on the Zwift platform, a commitment that allowed fans excited to share their own daily race with the Belgian.

A successful day for the team was completed by Mauro Schmid, Kilian Frankiny, Giacomo Nizzolo, Lukasz Wisnowski and Bert-Jane Lindeman who all put in strong performances which bode well as the team considers their ambitions in the second stage of the race Sunday and beyond.

First day, first top-10!

I’m super happy to have completed a great week of work during which the team helped me get the best of myself; physical performance and also the optimization of materials. I’m just super glad it paid off.

I think there is a lot left in the tank and I look forward to all the performances to come in TT as well as the road stages; the shape is not too bad!
