Dunkirk: Backaert tries

Dunkirk: Backaert tries

Our riders showed the team colours during the fourth stage of 4 Jours de Dunkerque (2.HC, 9-14/05). In the local laps close to Le Portel Frederik Backaert tried to anticipate on a tough climb. Backaert was however caught again and just missed junction with the decisive breakaway one local lap later. Sylvain Chavanel tried his chances with 5km to go and took a solo victory. Yoann Offredo (23rd) and Backaert (42nd) finished in the second chasing group. Offredo is now 15th in the GC. Tomorrow the riders head for Cassel, a stage which was won by Xandro Meurisse last year!
