TOUR OF ANTALYA: A GREAT WIN FOR DUSAN RAJOVIC IN STAGE 2
Second win of the season for Team corratec with Dusan Rajovic who took the first victory in the history of the team in a 2.1 race on stage 2 of the Tour of Antalya, 180 kms from Kemer to Antalya.
The National Champion of Serbia has shown all of his power in the mass sprint after surviving the several climbs placed in the first half of the stage.
On the final straight our main sprinter took the lead 150 metres away from the finish line and no one could stay on his wheel. Rajovic had all the time to celebrate his second win of the season and also the leadership in both general and points classification.
“I’m very happy – said today’s winner – as I managed to survive on the climbs of the day keeping my energies for the final. I felt good legs so I’ve decided to take the lead in the sprint very soon and I kept it till the end. I want to dedicate this win to Team corratec that has believed in me after a very difficult season and I am focused already on the next goal that will be on stage 4.”
Also the Team Manager Serge Parsani is delighted about today’s win, the first one after coming back on the team car after almost four years:
“I want to thank the whole team for the great job, we supported well Rajovic and everything went good. This is an amazing win as there are a lot of Pro Continental teams but we knew that we could do well here. Two wins in less than a month is a great result for Team corratec and we want to thank all the sponsors that have believed in us before starting this new adventure.”
Tomorrow the third stage will be the decisive one for the general classification with the demanding uphill finish of Termessos.
