Bos Sprints to Scheldeprijs Podium!

April 4, 2012

Rabobank rider Theo Bos sprinted to a podium finish at Wednesday’s 100th running of the Scheldeprijs race in Belgium. Bos battled some of the world’s best sprinters and managed to avoid several crashes to finish third on his Giant TCR Advanced SL.

Long considered a classic sprinters’ race, this year’s 202km Scheldeprijs was affected by adverse weather and cold rain in the final hour. Bos’s Rabobank teammates came through, helping control the race and steering the big Dutchman clear of the crashes that took out some other contenders.

Bos’s teammate Mark Renshaw helped set Bos up for the finish, and the former world track champion delivered the podium result, finishing just behind German Marcel Kittel and American Tyler Farrar.
