Pfannberger up for Ardennes challenges

Austrian Christian Pfannberger, who rides for the Barloworld team, had a very good showing in the Amstel Gold Race. He went after Serguei Ivanov of Astana. While the duo was caught, they were able to stay with the break up until the Cauberg. In the final few hundred metres Pfannberger had to pay for his earlier efforts, but was able to hang on for sixth place.

His next race will be Wednesday, at Flèche Wallonne and he will be trying to repeat a great performance. Barloworld will use the same line-up as in Amstel Gold. So the team will consist of Christian Pfannberger, Marco Corti, John-Lee Augustyn, Carlo Scognamiglio, Giampaolo Cheula, Moisés Dueñas Nevado, Chris Froome and Hugo Sabido.
