A fourth place was the result of the German Inline Cup in Koblenz this past weekend by the CadoMotus men team. "It was a super fast race", says Bart Swings.
"Our main competitors were the guys from Bont-Arena. They were with 6, from which 4 were attacking constantly. We were with 3 guys, which made it a little difficult. I made the wrong decision trying to control every brake and always be in front. It cost me the energy I needed at the end."
"Maarten crashed in the beginning of the race, but managed to come back and do some important work. He chased down DJ Nation and prepared the sprint in the last 5 kilometers. Then Ferre went to the lead, but we were passed by the complete Bont-Arena train."
"500 meters before the line the train passed us and I was placed back to 10th position. The win was out of reach, but I managed to come back to the 4th position in the last 200 meters."
"The win went to the Bont-Arena guys and they well deserved it. They raced a strong race, made very much attacks and showed good team work in the end."
