UCI Road World Championships. Alexey Lutsenko enters Top-10

Today, in Norway, the 2017 UCI Road World Championships has been ended with men’s elite road race of 276,5 km from Rong to Bergen.

Slovak rider Peter Sagan won the World’s title for the third time in a row. In the final bunch sprint Sagan overpassed Norwegian rider Alexander Kristoff, who took the silver medal of the championships. Australian Michael Matthews was third, taking the bronze.

Alexey Lutsenko of Kazakhstan National Team and Astana ProTeam did a very strong race: he was active during the whole day, tried to attack in the final and finished inside the Top-10, taking a nice 9th place. For Kazakhstan, this is the third best result in road races of the UCI World Championships.

- I am pretty happy with the result. To enter in Top-10 at the world championships in a company of such big stars of cycling – this is really cool. I think, we can be happy both with the result and with the way our national team did the race. I had a great support from my teammates during the entire day – Zhandos Bizhigitov and Dmitriy Gruzdev all the way stayed next to me providing a big help. In the final 5 laps a few teams started to do the race aggressively, launching a lot of attacks. My plan was to wait until the last lap and to attack there, so I made an attack with around 4 km to go. Our group took a few seconds, but later, all attacks were neutralized. In the final I did my best to get a good result and finished 9th. I had a long and exhausting season with two Grand tours and a lot of other races. So, now, after the Worlds, I will ride home race Tour of Almaty and will end the season after it, - said Alexey Lutsenko.

Also, two more Astana ProTeam riders finished in the leading group, which played the medals in Bergen: Russian Sergei Chernectkii was 18th and Michael Valgren finished 21st.
