Video: Kivistik on the podium in Lamentin
Updated: Jan 14
Two Estonian friends Gert Kivistik and Steven Kalf will compete this season on the exotiqe island of Martinique for the Team Crédit Mutuel-Garage Premier-Fewoss. In the first race in Lamentin (99,7km), Gert managed to finish on the 2nd place. He was helped at the end by his teammate Steven, who was 4th. "Most of the local stronger riders were present. As we didn't know them very well, our Sports Director gave us their race numbers and like that we could follow the best guys during the race. We got into the 15-man strong breakaway on a flat part just a bit after the start of the race. There were some 1km long climbs too at the second part of the race, but the last 10 was downhill on a big road and it finished in a small punch sprint," explained Gert. "We will stay here up to July, the most important race will be Tour of Martiniqe," explained Steven Kalf. The next race for Estonian guys will be already this Saturday, on the 18th of January.
