Timo Roosen of Team LottoNL–Jumbo rode Oltre XR4 to his first success as a pro' rider, anticipating the leading group’s sprint in Tour des Fjords stage 2, 185,1 km from Gulen to Norheimsund (Norway) on Thursday, May 25th. In a cold and rainy day, Roosen got to the finish line ahead of Edvald Boasson Hagen and August Jensen.
The win in Norheimsund pushes Roosen up to the second position both in the GC and the Youth classification, with a 24-second gap from leader Dries Van Gestel.
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.
