Report – Third for Scott Thwaites

Scott Thwaites completed a great team performance sprinting to 3rd place at the Belgian one-day race Nokere Koerse. With this result, Thwaites underlines his great form just ahead of the big spring classics. The 25-years old British rider was only defeated by Kris Boeckmans (Lotto-Soudal) and Justin Jules (Veranclassic) in the slightly uphill finish on cobblestones.

“That’s a great result for Scott, Phil and the entire team” said Andre Schulze. “The race was fast but controlled and so it was clear that we’d see a bunch sprint. We focused completely on the sprint and we didn’t want to waste any energy in attacks. Our tactic was to lead-out the sprint for Scott because this kind of finish -slightly uphill and with cobblestones- suits him. With a thousand meters to go I knew already that we’ll score a top result today because the guys rode so strong”, said Andre Schulze, Sport Director of BORA – ARGON 18.
