It was the expected difficult race, the classic “Fleche Ardennaise” for U23 teams over 165.9 kilometers and 3,500 meters in altitude and with a top international and Belgian line-up. 160 riders at the start, 101 at the finish in Stavelot. Felix Engelhardt drove a good race and finished in 24th place. Another test of talent by the young Moritz Hörnandtner, who was in the peloton with Engelhardt until shortly before the finish line. Karel Vacek, Linus Rosner, Stefan Kovar and Nepomuk Roth unfortunately DNF. But the beer selection was sensational 😉
Now there is a two-week break from racing before the preparations for the Giro U23 begin.
