Mueller wins stage seven of Rás
23 May 2015 21:09
Austrian rider Andreas Mueller (Hrinkow Advarics Cycleangteam) staved off a lung busting performance by Mullingar man Damien Shaw (Louth Team ASEA) to emerge victorious on stage seven of An Post Rás today in Drogheda.
The duo jumped the lead breakaway of eight riders with only 1km left, going head to head up the final ascent to the line but it was Mueller who managed to find an extra bit in the tank and take the chequered flag.
The penultimate stage of this year’s race was always destined to be action packed and it didn’t disappoint.
Today’s route was sure to test any tired legs as the peloton faced another category two climb, sandwiched in between two category three ascents, making it ideal for general classification riders to close the gap on yellow jersey leader, Lukas Postlberger (Austrian Tirol Cycling Team).
Postlberger’s start to the race didn’t go as planned, however. The Austrian was involved in a crash after no more than ten minutes of racing but fortunately managed to dust himself off and get back in the bunch.
