News: Drucker Wins Prologue in Luxembourg

It was a fitting end to the Tour de Luxembourg prologue with BMC’s Luxembourg rider, Jempy Drucker taking victory and claiming the first leader’s jersey of the race.

Wet and slippery conditions made the short, technical course even more challenging for riders but Drucker was able to battle the weather to set and early benchmark of 4’20 which was unmatched by any other rider along the 2.9km course.

Winner’s Interview with Jempy Drucker

How does it feel to win the opening stage in Luxembourg?
“It’s nice! I have’t won many races yet so I feel really happy to win today. It’s even better to win in Luxembourg as don’t get a lot of chances to race here so to do a good prologue and go into the leader’s jersey is great.”

What does it mean to go into tomorrow’s stage wearing the leader’s jersey?
“It definitely gives me an extra boost going into tomorrow’s stage as well as looking forward to the rest of the week knowing that I will be wearing the leader’s jersey. It’s a late night tonight but it’s the same for everyone so there is no disadvantage. We just have to rest up and prepare as best we can for tomorrow.”

The conditions were challenging out on the road, did that affect you at all?
“For me, it wasn’t too bad that it was raining and wet as I am come from a cyclo-cross background. I know how to turn fast, keep up good speed and handle the bike well which was really important for me today. I left it all out there on the road and thankfully it paid of with the win.”
