In the "Fred De Bruyne Memorial Race" held in Belgium, Our rider Markus Pajur secured the second place, finishing just three seconds behind the Norwegian Andre Dregest from Team Coop-Repsol, who claimed victory. The third place was earned by the Dutch cyclist Huub Artz (Metec-Solarwatt p/b Mantel; +0.03). Pajur described the race's progression, saying, "Right at the beginning of the 160.8-kilometer race, there was an explosive start. Various groups broke away, and eventually, a group of about 30 riders formed, from which approximately 12 riders separated about 35 kilometers before the finish." He continued, "On the last lap, a Metec rider attacked, and I chased after him. Later, two more riders joined us." "About 1.5 km before the finish, there was a final turn where the Belgian Yenti Vandevelde inexplicably let a gap open to Andre Dregest, who seized the opportunity and pulled away," Pajur further explained. "I tried to go with him, but he was already too far ahead. I gave it my all, and I'm satisfied with the result." Lauri Tamm (Tartu2024 Cycling Team; +0.38) finished in 12th place.
