The Cult Energy Pro Cycling climbers were in action in the Swiss one-day race GP Cittá di Lugano today where three Italian riders eventually conquered the podium. A late move from Cult Energy Pro Cycling's Linus Gerdemann was neutralized 7 kilometers to go but Dane Rasmus Guldhammer was waiting behind.

A big group of 17 riders managed to form today’s long-lasting breakaway but eventually the group started to crumble on the climbs and the increased forced pace by the galloping field behind. Entering the final lap on the circuit in and around the city of Lugano, all escapees were back in the field where Tinkoff-Saxo set a furious pace until the final few climbs.

Here a series of stinging attacks were launched from the now diminished peloton and with 10 kilometers remaining, Cult Energy Pro Cycling’s Linus Gerdemann was in a select group of ten riders in front of the pack. Unfortunately, the unrepresented teams joined forces and reeled in the front group with 7 kilometers to go which resulted in multiple counter-attacks .

But the race was eventually concluded in a reduced bunch sprint where Cult Energy Pro Cycling's Rasmus Guldhammer was up there among the best and finished fourth with Gerdemann right behind him.

Nicolo Bonifazio (Lampre-Merida) was the fastest of all.
DS Michael Skelde states:

The boys did a super job out there and were aggressive but still waited for the right moment to move and when finishing 4th and 5th, I can hardly be displeased with their effort. Naturally, when you're this close to the podium, and we have been several times now this year already, it gets a little frustrating. But I'm also aware that when the boys are riding so fast this early in the season, we'll get the victories in our pocket eventually."


Rasmus Guldhammer says:


"We were rocketing up towards the finish line and I was moving up to third place but the guy in front of me boxed me in close to the barrier so I had to brake and move up on the other side of him with 50 meters to go and then it was too late. However, I'm happy about this result and the way we are riding together. Naturally, off the road, it's been a rather chaotic week with the stolen bikes in mind but on the road, we're getting stronger all the time."
