GB Academy Build Up To Tour de L'Avenir


The Great Britain Road Academy team has been busy preparing for the Tour de L'Avenir with races in Belgium before competing in the Twinings Pro-Am on the 28 August.

Luke Rowe crosses the line to win in Belgium

Luke Rowe registered a win yesterday with Mark Christian finishing in eighth by escaping from the chasing group to finish alone. Tom Moses and Simon Yates sprinted in with the next group followed by Erick Rowsell and Joe Kelly who all rode a creditable supporting role for the team. Sam Harrison, who is nursing a knee injury and Jon Mould, who is recovering from his crash in Brittany, have not travelled with the team this week.

Running from Saturday September 5 to Sunday September 12 2010, the 47th Tour de l'Avenir will be made up of 1 prologue and 8 stages and will cover a total distance of 1,011 kilometres. Twenty national teams of six riders will compete.
