Once again, a LAMPRE-MERIDA rider joined a breakaway in the Volta a Catalunya. In the 6th stage of the Spanish race, Croatian Durasek was one of the 21 riders that escaped from the bunch after 15km.

The attackers got a maximum advantage of 4' before the wind again became the protagonist of the race. Because of the strong wind, the breakaway split in two groups and Durasek did not succeded in being in the front of the race.

 

Meanwhile, a crash in the bunch, that was caused by the wind, involved two blue-fuchsia-green riders, Polanc and Niemiec, who both could complete the race despite a contusion to the already broken wrist for the Slovenian rider and a hip contusion and large graze all over the body for the Polish climber.

Durasek, who was in the second of the two groups in which the breakaway had been broken, waited for the the peloton in order to support Valls in the final part. The Spanish rider was 26th at 1'50"  and he'll face the final stage in Barcelona starting in 8th position.

 

" The organization of our riders and their readiness to handle the situation was excellent," sports director Orlando Maini said. Durasek had the task of entering the breaks and he did so. The other riders had to stay close to Valls and did played their job well. 

 

"When Polanc and Niemiec crashed, Valls was alone and we asked Durasek who was in the second groupm to wait for him and support him in the final part. Bravo, Kristijan.

 

"We hope that the consequences of the crash do not affect Jan and Przemyslaw in the final part of this race. To give an idea of the nature of the crash, Niemiec found a piece of Ten Dam's handlebar as the Dutchman was also involved."
