Still in top 15 of Europe Tour's team ranking
After Rait Ärm's stage win in Baltic Chain Tour (UCI 2.2), multiple wins & podium places in Estonian road championships and Pajur's 4th place in European U23 rr championships and Antti's and Ukko's domination in the Finnish championships the good results have continued in September. Last week we were 14th in the Europe Tour's ranking, this week we have lost only one spot.
At first Antti-Jussi Juntunen finished 3rd in the Carpathian Couriers Race (1.2) with Markus Pajur 6th and Henri Treimuth 9th. Same weekend Pauls Rubenis was second in the Latvian elite road race championships and he won the U23 title.
A bit later Rait & Markus showed some good legs during the Baltyk Karkanosze Tour (2.2) and Pauls Rubenis showed his fighting spirit with top10 placings during the Olympic Champions and Solidarity Race (UCI 2.2).
Boys added some points to the UCI classification during the only Nations Cup in the colours of Estonian U23 national team. The Orlens GP had a 27km long TTT the first day. Estonian boys finished 4th behind Netherlands, Swiss and Germany, but sprinted in to the podium during the next day's road race. Markus Pajur was second and Rait Ärm third. The race was won by the super talented Dutch Olav Kooij who rides for Lotto Jumbo's continental team.
