Six podiums, two wins, points jersey and three riders in top-25… These are results of the Minsk team participation in the biggest UCI Africa Tour event La Tropicale Amissa Bongo in Gabon.

At the last Stage 7 the Belarusian team was again in the spotlight. This classic stage with final laps on the capital streets was marked by numerous attacks and breakaways.  Many riders wanted to claim a win in the end.

The Minsk riders participated in all the breakaways. Eduard Vorganov was one of the most active not only in the team, but also in the race. He finished second in the most aggressive rider classification of the stage.

Stanislau Bazhkou defending the points jersey joined one the last attacks. The peloton didn’t allow this group of 7 riders to make a big gap, but was a little bit late to catch them at the finish. Bazhkou finished third and secured his pink points jersey. Siarhei Papok arrived three seconds late in front of the peloton and was 7th.

Three Minsk riders finished the La Tropicale Amissa Bongo in GC top-25 : Yauhen Sobal (11), Stanislau Bazhkou (14), Siarhei Papok (24).
