The 31-year-old Dutch rider equipped with Oltre XR4 completed his effort in the wake of Edvald Boasson Hagen, preceding August Jensen, third placed. Boom's teammate Timo Roosen finished ninth.
With two stages to go, Roosen is third in the GC with a 24-second gap from the leader Dries Van Gestel, whilst Lars Boom came up to fifth (+0:38). Roosen is also second in the Youth classification.
Team LottoNL-Jumbo's riders are equipped with four models engineered with Countervail® viscoelastic carbon material:
  • Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control
  • Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
  • Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, it provides remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reduces muscular fatigue.
  • Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, it’s designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke.
