Rudy Barbier left no doubt about who was strongest in the fourth and final stage of the Tour of Slovakia, winning the bunch sprint by a noticeable margin. It was the second victory for the Frenchman this season.
Poor communication in the previous day’s finale left Rudy “frustrated,” he said. “We all discussed it and today we worked together. I am in great shape and we must take advantage of this. The hard finish on the cobbles was perfect for me.”
