Deutschland Tour 6 Laengenfeld - Kufstein

After the rain there will be sunshine, like people use to say and this certainly goes for Euskaltel in the Tour of Germany. After the last disappointing stages, we finally got to see some good Euskaltel action. First of all there was Jon Bru who tried to escape out of the pack at 20km before the finish, he couldn't keep his advantage, but he tried something and showed his great shape.

Like usual there was an early escape with two riders, Martens and Murer but they didn't have a chance against the pack so it became a sprint. Finally the Euskaltel riders Galdos and Fernandez were placed good and they sprinted with all the big ones. It was Ciolek who took the victory but I thought for a second that Koldo could win, he became fifth. Not only Koldo did a great job but also Aitor got in the top 10 at place 10
