 DEVELOPMENT TEAM SUNWEB'S MARC HIRSCHI WINS ISTRIAN SPRING TROPHY STAGE 2
 
Marc Hirschi (SWI) has made it two for Development Team Sunweb at the Istrian Spring Trophy today, as he secured the victory on the race's second road stage after a gruelling climb to the line. 

Speaking of the win, Hirschi said: "Today was was all about the last climb. The team did an amazing job and brought me into a perfect position. As the climb started, I felt like my legs were good, so we set the pace as hard as possible. At one kilometre to go I attacked with one other rider and managed to get a gap over the top of the climb. From there, it was a sprint to the finish. I’m really happy with the win and my shape at this point in the season. I'm also really proud of how the team worked today, without it the win wouldn't have been possible."

Team Sunweb coach Tom Veelers (NED) added: "Before the climb we had Felix and Martin working, with Max sticking with Marc early on in the climb and Jarno and Nils setting the pace to make it really hard as the climb progressed. In the end Marc took great initiative to go and managed to get free from the rest of the bunch. Here he could out-sprint the rider that went with him to take the win. It was a solid effort from everyone today and it's great to see that rewarded with the win."
