Yevgeniy Fedorov takes under-23 World title as luck favours attackers
The World Championships have seen it's second race today, and once again a two-up sprint decided the race as the attackers managed to succeed, and Astana Qazaqstan Team's Yevgeniy Fedorov took the glory.
In the final few laps the attacks started to come, eventually they began to gain quite a lot of danger as the gaps expanded and there were strong figures in the front.
A six-rider group went clear eventually, and from them three entered the final climb in front, in which Yevgeniy Fedorov and Mathias Vacek went clear and had a clear run to the finish.
Initially the moves in the peloton did little to bring the gap down as the attacks were evenly matched in the ascent, but in the final kilometers there was somewhat of an organization. The gap came down, but the front duo disputed the win, and Fedorov easily took the win, with Vacek coming second and Soren Waerenskjold winning the sprint for third place in the peloton just three seconds behind.
