While cross country stars in Italy and Spain were getting muddy, Swede Emil Lindgren was warm and dry in Cyprus where he won the second round of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup, the Afxentia stage race. His win followed on from his first victory of the season in round one.
Lindgren took all three stages of the Afxentia, including a time trial, a point-to-point cross country race and a multi-lap cross country.
He will remain in Cyprus to contest the next round of the Sunshine Cup this coming weekend.
