Milram's Andrey Grivko has finished second in the first two races of the Intaka World's View Challenge series in South Africa. In the first race on Saturday, he finished behind Manuel Quinziato of Liquigas and in Sunday's second race, the winner was Leonardo Bertagnolli (Liquigas). Milram' neo-pro Christian Kux finished sixth on Sunday.

"That was a great appearance by our young team, with good results," said Jochen Hahn, Milram Directeur Sportif. "We did well, despite the 40° C temperatures, and had Andrey Grivko and Christian Kux in the escape group until the end. Of course it's too bad that Andrey Grivko just missed the win for the second day in a row. But here in South Africa we are showing a a good team performance and everyone is working well together, so I am very satisfied with that."

Grivko was also in a successful escape group in the first stage, and won the group sprint after Quinziato had escaped to take the win.
