Tom-Jelte Slagter bounced back from bad luck yesterday to claim victory in today’s 7th stage at Paris-Nice. Following a disappointing ride yesterday that left him stranded at 300 meters to go with a broken derailleur, Tom bounced back in a big way to win the sprint against some of cycling’s best at Paris-Nice.

Tom wrote us via email after the race:

Yesterday was a really fantastic stage again, naturally it took some time to make the switch in my head since there was no more GC to race for, but we knew the stage suited me with that uphill sprint and the team was so motivated that it motivated me 100%. Alex and Andre covered more or less every breakaway and Sebastian brought me in the very best position for the sprint. I’m so proud of the team and thankful that they worked that hard for me. Going home with 2 victories in PN is a dream start of the season.
