Astana Pro Team’s Dane took French race stage4 with his Northwave Extreme Pro shoes. Fourth place for De Marchi, Luis Leon Sanchez moved up to second overall
Marcus Cort Nielsen marked the sixteenth seasonal win of Astana Pro Team, Kazakh’s World Tour squad entirely supplied with Northwave Extreme Pro shoes, on Wednesday March 13th. The Danish rider claimed Paris Nice’s stage 4, 212 Km from Vichy to Pélussin (France), preceding Belgian Thomas De Gendt and Italian Giulio Ciccone, while another Northwave rider, Italian Alessandro De Marchi (CCC Team), took fourth.
Part of the decisive breakaway, Cort Nielsen surged away in the last kilometer, holding off the other escapees and soloing on the finishing line with his Extreme Pro, the top-end road shoe developed by Northwave, characterized by the XFrame2® patented technology, securing maximum power transmission on pedals also thanks to the top-performing Powershape® Carbon 15 outsole.
Astana Pro Team also jumped to GC second spot with Spain’s Luis Leon Sanchez, 5 seconds behind the new leader Michal Kwiatkowski.
