This Sunday at the final stage of the Sazka Tour (2.1, 5-8/8), Jan Bakelants and Jan Hirt started on the first row in Šumperk. It was familiar ground for Hirt, wearing the red jersey for best Czech rider, as he won this stage in 2014 and as he was born only 100 kilometer away from the parcours. Bakelants showed in the second race hour why he was eager to be at the front by bridging to the early breakaway of four riders. However, the leader’s team made the advantage of the leaders undone before the four local 7 kilometer laps in Šternberk. Rein Taaramäe and his teammates battled for bonus seconds and the stage victory in a very attractive final, but in the end they had to settle with four top 15 finishes: Taaramäe 10th, Petilli 13th, Bakelants 14th and Hirt 15th. Tobias Halland Johannessen took a second stage win and finished 2nd in the final classification behind Filippo Zana. Taaramäe managed to conserve his 3rd place in the final classification.
