The first day at Boucles de la Mayenne 2021 ended with a great victory for Philippe Walsleben. The Alpecin-FENIX German athlete crossed the finish line first in 3 hours, 59 minutes and 45 seconds ahead of the Spanish cyclist Diego Rubio (Burgos-BH).

It was a very intense race – 175 kilometres long – with many sprints on the way. At 10 kms to the finish line only these two athletes remained head to head. The Walsleben performed the crucial acceleration gaining the necessary distance from Rubio to win the stage.

A wonderful performance for our athlete and a great satisfaction for the Aplecin-FENIX team. Congrats Philippe!
