Team Diary: Saxo Banks’ Giro d’Italia Recap

Team Saxo Bank’s Lars Bak maintained his 20th position in the GC after the 14,4 kilometer long time trial in the streets of Rome. In addition, the Danish champion in the discipline managed to pull two fourth place finishes through hard work and aggressive riding throughout the 3 weeks.

With the final stage of the Giro Torsten Schmidt comments; "I am very happy about the last three weeks of racing and I’ll like to use this opportunity to say thanks to everyone on the staff who made things easier and pleasant for the riders and for me as a sports director. This was my first long stage race on the job and I have deep respect for the riders who go through a lot throughout a race like this.

"We were here to win a stage and we saw Kasper Klostergaard, Anders Lund and Jens Voigt trying to slip away in breaks to achieve our goal. Lars Bak kept trying to improve his position in the GC throughout the race and he shows great attitude as a professional rider. But it was not easy to win a stage in this edition of the race without grimpeurs. Instead we witnessed a bunch of young and prosperous riders like Matthew Goss who still needs experience in mass sprints but in the future he will be able to win stages in races like this".
