Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux concluded the week of national championships with the best harvest in its history. After two time trial titles (Girmay, Taaramäe), a silver medal (Peák) and two bronze medals (Peák, van der Hoorn), the World Team was represented in the road race of eight different countries this Sunday.
Estonian rider Rein Taaramäe also animated his championships from the start in Kuldiga (Latvia), where he lined up with the riders from all other Baltic countries. He rode in the lead of the race until the final 40 kilometer. In an exceptional heat for this part of Europe, only 25 riders concluded the race. The young 19 year old sprinter Madis Mihkels took ninth place in the race for the Estonian title in the Elite category.
