Teammates happy with Bak

CSC's Lars Bak finished only 54th at Züri Metzgete, but he felt like a winner all the same after the race. As the Dane told Ekstra Bladet, he "felt really good during the first 180 kilometres, and my teammates praised me for doing a fantastic job."

Even though Bak - like most of the other riders - had a hard time in the Swiss autumn weather, he did not back down and finished the event, which saw only 64 of the initial 169 riders reaching the finish line. "It was a tough race, it was incredibly dangerous going downhill, and everyone was very scared they might crash," Bak said.
