Karl Patrick Lauk won the French amateur calendar's opener
Karl Patrick Lauk (Team Pro Immo Nicolas Roux) won the Boucles de l'Essor in front of his teammate Mickael Guichard. The two had to rally a 60km long breakway to win. Their teammates controlled very well the race behind and finally there were 5 Team Pro Immo Nicolas Roux riders in Top6. Karl didn't have to sprint for the victory in the end as Mickael told that the Estonian was stronger today and he let him win. Karl explained that they are good friends and next time it will be Mickael's turn.
