3 Days Of Axel in Holland and Belgium
Stage 1 in Holland. Average speed at one point was 60kmph! Loads of crashes with Adam and Logan Maclean taking a tumble early on. Scott had an early puncture then lost his chain on the cobbles. Scott lost 7 minutes after his chain issue but the other 4 finished in the main bunch. Stage 2 TT.
2 stages on day two so was busy. Three
crashes in road stage but all the Spokes riders finished safely for the final stage in Flanders. Not many teams left with full compliment of riders.
Sun, rain, cobbles, Crashes, mechanicals, fines, disputes with German team manager and very gutsy performance buy Adam, Alex, Logan, Aaron and Scott. Adam only finisher but only 66 finished out of 190 starters. Cut off was only 4 mins behind leader. Great to have former Spokes riders Dylan Hughes and Stephen Dent helping out on last stage and thanks for their help with showers and food after last stage at their house.
