3rd Tour of Croatia
« on: April 16, 2018, 03:50:23 AM »
Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum Team for the Tour of Croatia
The UCI 2.HC Tour of Croatia starts tomorrow, the 17th April 2018, in Osijek and is the first of Tim Guy’s “Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum” Cycle Team major events for the 2018 season.

The local professional cyclist has been named on the start list for the important 6 day tour but the lastest news is he has a bug and will have to withdraw from the event.

Currently the team is Tadej Pogacar, Ziga Rucigaj, Viktor Potocki, Izidor Penko, Ziga Jerman and Aussies Ben Hill and Timothy Guy with Tim to be replaced.

With teams such as Astana, Trek – Segafredo and Bahrain Merida battling it out for race honours; Tim Guy explained it’s no placed for a sick rider; and as much as he wanted to race the tour given Mark Renshaw previous podiums performances, he realised he had to make way for a full fit rider for the sake of his Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum of which he is a team sponsor.

It is the third running of the Tour of Croatia which last year was won by Italian superstar Vincenzo Nibali.
