- Today was a very fast race from the very beginning. Everybody was trying to escape, but the peloton didn’t let breakaway. And only at the 82 km from the start, from the third try, I managed to go with other 5 riders. We worked very well together, but unfortunately, were caught only 300 meters before the finish line. Generally, I’m satisfied with my performance at this race, I feel good and ready to do my best at the national championships, - said Zhandos Bizhigitov after the finish.
