Dylan Groenewegen gave an encore at Tour of Norway, topping stage 4 - 192 km from Lillestroem to Sarpsborg - on Saturday, May 20th. Winner of the stage 2 last Thursday, equipped with Oltre XR4, Team LottoNL-Jumbo's rider preceded Norway's Edvald Boasson Hagen and August Jensen in the mass sprint. It's the third seasonal win for the Dutchman.
New Zealander George Bennett rode Aquila CV to fourth in Amgen Tour of California's sixth and penultimate stage, a 24 km ITT with start and finish in Big Bear Like. Thanks to this good performance, Bennett moved in the GC lead with one stage to go, with a 35-second advantage on Rafal Majka and 36 on Andrew Talansky.
Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with Countervail® viscoelastic carbon material: Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control; the ultralight Specialissima, perfect for GC riders, extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents; Infinito CV that provides remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reduces muscular fatigue; the ultimate time trial machine Aquila CV, designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke.
