Baku, April 30, AZERTAC
Matej Mugerli once again showed his great form and continued the strong showing from the Synergy Baku Cycling Project by finishing third on the fifth stage of the Tour de Bretagne. He was part of a late three-man break which finished ahead of the field.
The stage started out with rain, wind and cool temperatures. An early break group got away but was caught after the last climb. Mugerli was in the next break of three, but he too was caught by the field.
The Slovenian champion refused to give up and jumped from the bunch in the last three kilometers. Alone, he caught the two riders in front and stayed with them until the end.
