Belohvosciks scores magnificent seventh title

Raivis Belohvosciks (Saunier Duval-Prodir) has added another national title to his palmarès after taking the Latvian time trial championship for the seventh time in his career on Monday. The 31 year-old, who hails from the Latvian capital Riga, has now triumphed in seven of the past eight national time trials, only missing out in 2003 when he did not compete.

Belohvosciks took victory by two minutes over nearest rival Olegs Melehrs (Rietumu Banka-Riga) on the 44 kilometre course. The win brings Saunier Duval's count to 21 for the season so far.
