Today was a Latvian day in the 89km long SEB 17th Tartu Rattamaraton. Andzs Flaksis form Rietumu-Delfini team took first place. His teammate Andris Smirnovs (LAT) was second. 46 year old Alges Maasikmets from Estonia was third.
„The course was very fast. Driving with individual strength only was impossible today and a lot depended on teamwork,“ said Maasikmets. He stayed in the main group the whole race and managed to beat last years winner Erki Pütsep in the final sprint.
„Avarage speed was constantly more than 30 km/h. That was extreamly fast for a MTB marathon,“ commented winner Flaksis. He managed to set a new course record with a time of 2:29:11.
Flaksis and Smirnovs managed to pull away from the main group in a about 20 kilometres after the start. Aksel Nõmmela from Estonia managed to stay with the Latvians for most of the race but couldn’t stay with them until the end.
