Team Sunweb’s Joris Nieuwenhuis finishes in 6th place at today’s DVV Trofee in Niel, holding onto a solid place in the select chasing group.
Joris said: “Today was the first muddy race of the year. I had a pretty good start and after a lap I was riding at around 10th place. I adapted pretty quickly to the mud and my cornering was better then expected. After a while I managed to get a small gap while riding in 5th place, but the whole bunch came back and Meisen took off. On the last lap I had to go full to get 6th place but I’m happy with a solid perfomance.“
