In the middle to the end of the match, cyclists Toms Skujins and Mattias Skjelmose of Lidl-Trek, Chris Harper and Lucas Hamilton of Team Jayco AIUIa, Hugo Houle of Israel Premier-Tech and Neilson Powless of EF Education-EasyPost , remained faithful to the path even under a strong sun and heat.

“I’m really happy. This race is very important for the Lidl-Trek team and to win here and to show great teamwork is very important for us and to win this race is very special. Toms was super strong. I was strong. I think we both could have won. Toms had a good attack and I was just waiting for my moment to attack”, said Mattias Skjelmose after finishing the race.

Neilson Powless also commented on the competition, saying it was a tougher day: “It turned out to be a very aggressive and difficult race day in Baltimore. Something about this course makes the race very selective. And I think it’s probably the heat and mountainous terrain of the countryside. But when we got to the end it was just a slug party”.
