Nõmmela started his season in Murcia riding like a cyclosportive
The Vuelta Ciclista a la Region de Murcia's first stage turned out to be a battle between 10 riders. They escaped already on the first climb (2.2km 5%) of the day and gone they were. Nõmmela (Bingoal - Wallonie Bruxelles) told on his Facebook page that Rusvelo tried to chase them down, but most of the big teams had a guy in front and that was it. " A nice day riding like in a cyclosportive, at least we could enjoy riding the bike," explained Aksel, who came to the finish in the main field loosing 16m49s to the winner. The race was won by Meurisse Xandro (Circus- Wanty Gobert).
