Deutschland Tour #1: The Beast goes close

A well-executed plan saw Reinardt Janse van Rensburg narrowly miss out on a podium spot in the opening stage of the Deutschland Tour as he finished 4th in Bonn.

Alvaro Hodeg (Quick-Step Floors) won the 157km stage from Koblenz to Bonn on a beautiful day in Germany. That after the race returned to the calendar for the 1st time in a decade.

We did a really good job, Bernie and Renshaw got me into the perfect position behind Pascal Ackermann and then maybe I went on the wrong side of his wheel and two guys passed me. I’m looking forward to the next (few) days which perhaps suit me even better.
