Astana Pro Team’s rider brought his Northwave Extreme Pro shoes on the top spot of Doyenne’s podium with an amazing action on the Roche-aux-Faucons
Astana Pro Team’s Jakob Fuglsang gave Northwave a memorable day at Liege-Bastogne-Liege, with an impressive solo display on the Roche-aux-Faucons hill, on Sunday April 28th.
Equipped with Northwave Extreme Pro shoes, the 34-year-old Dane rider ended in style his “Ardennes trio”, claiming a superb win in the “Doyenne”, after placing third at Amstel Gold Race last Sunday and second at Flèche Wallonne of Wednesday April 24th. In the 105th edition of the Belgian monument, Fuglsang preceded on the finish line Italian Davide Formolo and German Maximilian Schachmann.
In a challenging race as the Liege-Bastogne-Liege, Fuglsang took advantage by the benefits of Extreme Pro’s XFrame2® patented technology, securing maximum power transmission on pedals, with the top-performing Powershape® Carbon 15 sole, crucial to save energy.
A great team effort for the Kazakh squad, entirely supplied with Northwave Extreme Pro, paved the way to Fuglsang in view of the finale. With an aggressive racing approach, Fuglsang concretized Astana Pro Team’s strong team work, claiming the biggest win of his career. “On the last climb, I had the team leaving me in the perfect position - Fuglsang explained. - It's an amazing feeling to win here. I'm glad my wife was right about me being able to win here, and I will always listen to her from now on”.
