“Matt rode a good race and was one of the best riders today,” Champion System General Manager Ed Beamon said. The 163.2-kilometer race saw several breakaways and with 20 km remaining, a group of five riders – which included Irish national road champion Brammeier – escaped and held on to the finish. Tim de Troyer (Accent Jobs-Wanty) took the win ahead of Sam Bennett (An Post ChainReaction) and Brammeier.

“I went in with the tactic to stay in the front group for the whole race, so I never was in the position to chase,” Brammeier said. “My plan worked until the final kilometer, where I hesitated and let two guys slip away a little too far. I was happy with my result and condition, but of course disappointed not winning.”
