Romanian stage race got off to an exciting start with short, twisty and winding prologue. Punchy and fast riders, as well as riders with track cycling background were mentioned as the favorites for that TT. Among them was Adrian Kurek who took 3rd place two years back.
This time he was unable to top that result, as he clocked 6th best time – 3:03 – 4 seconds behind the winner, Davide Ballerini (Androni Giocattoli – Sidermec). Also Frantisek Sisr made the top 20, as he was 19th (+9s).
