"The finish line was pretty straight forward compared to the other lumpy finals in this race but this was a perfect match. I haven't been racing for almost a month so it's great to be back like this."

In today’s 197 kilometer long fifth and final stage of Bayern Rundfahrt, CULT Energy Pro Cycling’s Christian Mager participated in the long-lasting breakaway consisting of six riders but managed to go solo in the final 20 kilometers. Eventually the stage was concluded in a bunch sprint where teammate 20-year-old Michael Carbel finished 5th.

 

After only 6 kilometers of racing, the escapees managed to sail away from the bunch to sweep up all bonus seconds on the course. In the peloton, the leading team of Movistar took charge of the pace-making along with some of the sprint teams as yet another bunch sprint was expected in Nürnberg this afternoon.

 

Going under the 20 kilometer banner, CULT Energy’s Christian Mager launched a solo attack and prolonged his position in the front of the race. However, the stage was concluded in a hectic bunch sprint where CULT Energy Pro Cycling Dane Michael Carbel finished 5th.

 

Michael Carbel reports:

 

"Entering the finale, Rasmus Quaade worked hard to keep me on the front and when things got more hectic, Alex Kirsch and Linus [Gerdemann] were there to guide and protect me to the finish line where I managed to come in fifth. The finish line was pretty straight forward compared to the other lumpy finals in this race but this was a perfect match. I haven't been racing for almost a month so it's great to be back like this and feel that I have the power to compete. Now I'm looking that much more forward to the next challenges."

 

DS Luke Roberts says:

 

"The stage turned out pretty well for us. Christian simply couldn't resist the urge to attack and he went on a climb in the beginning of the stage to spend most of the day in the break. Entering the finale, the boys did a perfect job setting up Michael for the bunch sprint and he put a good result in the pocket, sprinting across the line in fifth position. A demonstration from Michael showing that he's strong enough to compete with the best out there and considering the fact that he's only 20 years old, I reckon that with some more experience he'll be on the top step of the podium eventually."
