Yellow Jersey for An Post Team
Fleeman delivers yellow jersey for An Post team in the Pyrenees
Daniel Fleeman delivered the yellow jersey for the An Post Sean Kelly team following Stage 2 of the Tour of the Pyrenees today.
Fleeman finished fourth in yesterday's Stage 1 and put in an even better performance today to finish second place in the race and take the overall leaders positions and yellow jersey.
The rest of the team finished with the peleton with their final places still to be confirmed, but Manager Kurt Bogaerts was delighted with how Fleeman's team-mates helped him to take the leaders jersey.
“It was a great team effort today,” Bogaerts said. "The rest of the team did everything they could to help Daniel and it worked, as he put in a superb final 4km to become runner up today and take the yellow jersey. If we can show this spirit and comradery for the rest of this Tour we have a great chance of winning, and it will be the perfect preparation for the Tour of Ireland."
