IAM Cycling has once again demonstrated its collective strength.

At the final stage of the Tour of Norway, the riders guided by Kjell Carlström and Eddy Seigneur went on the offensive.

Sébastien Reichenbach and Rémi Cusin in particular made massive attempts to escape from the pack in an effort to take the stage win, but their moves were eventually neutralized.

Once again Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) won the mass sprint for the stage while Edvald Boasson Hagen secured the overall victory for the second consecutive year.

The Swiss Pro Continental team’s riders were still able to earn two top 10 places on the stage with Sébastien Hinault in 7th and Reto Hollenstein in 10th, while Johann Tschopp took 9th overall in the general classification.

But it is their first place in the team classification that proves IAM Cycling made constant efforts to impact the outcome of the event.

Directeur Sportif Eddy Seigneur confirmed this assessment.

“At the Tour of Romandie and the Four Days of Dunkirk, we always tried to make the moves that would decide the final outcome of the races.  Our success at doing this means that the guys are in very good condition.  Today Cusin and Reichenbach tried their chances on the final climb, but Team Sky was just too strong and able to control the situation.  Ultimately our luck just wasn’t there, but we can smile and feel proud that we leave with a victory in the team ranking, which is in no way a trivial accomplishment.  Not every team was able to plant 5 of their riders in an elite peloton of 35 guys at the finale battling for the stage win.”
