Six-man break decides hilly race in Gippingen

Kristof Vandewalle beat his five breakaway companions to take out the GP Kanton Aargau. Vandewalle was ahead of Emanuele Sella and Heinrich Haussler. It was Haussler's first race back after injury and he ended it in the same spot as last year.

The team's sports director Jean-Pierre Heynderickx was quite happy with the win of his rider in such a big race. "A group of six was away and in the final there was one attack after the other.  Eventually, two riders were away," Heynderickx said. This was te decisive phase for Vandewalle. "[Marco] Marcato wanted to bridge, so Kristof went with him to join the leaders and have a say about victory."

This was a top result for Topsport Vlaanderen. "It is a fantastic win that was harder than even last year." The GP Aargau consists of 16 laps of 12km each, for a total distance of 192km. This year, the route was changed, with the KOM in Schlatt, 7.5km from the start-finish area, providing the decisive point of the race. "Last year we finished second with Ben Hermans," Heynderickx said. It seems to be  a good race for Topsport Vlaanderen
