The 66th edition of the Circuit Cycliste Sarthe, in France, ended in the name of Northwave and Wanty-Groupe Gobert, team entirely equipped with Extreme RR shoes and Extreme Air socks. Following the success conquered in the yesterday’s queen stage, local favourite Guillaume Martin, 24-year-old leader of the Belgian squad, controlled his rivals in the final stage (Brulon - Sablé, 183,9 Km) of Friday April 6th, won by Brit Daniel McLay.
In the overall standings, Martin preceded by 0:16 his teammate Xandro Meurisse, whilst Justin Jules finished third at 0:24. In addition, Wanty-Groupe Gobert won the Teams’ Classification ahead of Ag2R-La Mondiale (0:36) and Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise (1:12): a confidence boost in view of the second consecutive participation of the Belgian squad to the Tour de France, next July.
In the Netherlands, local hero Kirsten Wild (Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling) sprinted to win the first half-stage of Healthy Ageing Tour’s day 3 (Oldambt - Winschoten 66,2 Km), unleashing all her power thanks to the XFrame® patented technology of the Northwave Extreme RR shoes. The Dutch rider outsprinted Christine Majerus and Lisa Klein.
Wild celebrated her first seasonal success on the road, after the four rainbow jerseys claimed in the last edition of the UCI Track World Championships, in Apeldoorn (Netherlands).
