Serghei Tvetcov finished an impressive 5th overall while racing for the Romanian Federation at the Sibiu Cycling Tour, a UCI 2.1 stage race that is part of the Europe Tour.
The tour highlights the Romanian region of Sibiu and features a gorgeous stage 2 that finishes at Bâlea Lac. On this, the most decisive of the 4-stage race, Serghei finished 4th and moved into 5th overall. From this point on it was a matter of managing splits and time bonuses. After stage 3 to Pāltinis, Serghei had moved up to 4th and 2 sec off the podium. On the final stage, however, he was isolated and it was Serghei’s experience and race craft that allowed him to ensure he secured 5th overall. He also won the Red jersey as the top Romanian.
Thanks to the Romanian Federation for providing race days for one of our riders, enabling Serghei to compete at the European Games and National Championships. As the North American race calendar struggles to re-establish itself, extra race days in Europe and Asia are increasingly valuable.
