ProTeam Harm Vanhoucke fifth at Tour du Jura

The 26-year-old Belgian took another top five spot for Lotto Dstny.
Race 13 April 2024

After the Classic Grand Besançon Doubs yesterday, another race was held in France with the Tour du Jura. There were 14 guys making it in the early breakaway, among them also Matys Grisel. "On a climb unfortunately Matys dropped, so then we didn't have anyone upfront anymore. Thomas (De Gendt) and Matys started to control together with other teams, which made the gap smaller, going from four minutes to one minute 30 seconds", Harm Vanhoucke explains.

"The racing was on the whole day. Then it was waiting until the final climb, just like yesterday. From the bottom of the climb until the finish it was just à bloc. David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) rode away and stayed upfront, on 500 meters of the finish behind him we were still with four riders. I started my sprint a bit too fast."

Vanhoucke is really happy about his shape: "After yesterday I was confident about my shape. It shows that my form is here."

Unfortunately Logan Currie crashed after the race, in the downhill on the way to the bus. He has a lot of abrasions.
