Matej Mugerli, a Slovenian champion, took the sixth place of the Tour de Bretagne by finishing the second on the closing stage of the competition. He soloed in to the finish line only two seconds ahead of the peloton to take the win, while teammate Maksim Averin finished fifth.

Mugerli topped off an outstanding Tour de Bretagne for the Synergy Baku Cycling Project, which saw the team take one stage win, two second places and one third places.

Ioannis Tamouridis, who will also be riding the Tour d’Azerbaijan, finished second on the fourth stage.

The Slovenian national champion made his every effort in the final kilometer to take second place behind the lone escapee who won the stage. Dennis van Winden, the other Synergy Baku Cycling Project rider left in the race, taking the eighth place.

Mugerli said that their preparations for the Tour d’Azerbaidjan went exactly as planned. “My form is good, as my second place finish in the final stage today showed. Now, I am on my way to Baku!”

It all went according to plan, said DS Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary. “I am very happy with today’s result. We decided to do nothing until the last 20 km. Matej attacked in the last 500 meters and took the second place.”
