Top ten finish for An Post’s Kenny Lisabeth in Spain

An Post Sean Kelly’s Belgian rider Kenny Lisabeth finished 9th in today’s second stage of the Tour of Extremadura.

The best Irish finisher was Cork’s Paidi O’Brien in 53rd place, and An Post team manager Kurt Bogaerts explained that it was a very tight race throughout.

“Today was a very tight race with everyone finishing in a bunch sprint,” Bogaerts said. “Kenny got a strong finish in the top 10 and next best was Paidi, but it was bunched and all very close.

“The first two stages have been good so we need to keep up this level as the final few days are tough and it will take a strong effort from the team to win a stage.”
