Vuelta a Venezuela
Report provided by Symmetrics Fuelled By FarmPure

The Symmetrics Fuelled by FarmPure team had a better day today, with all of the riders finally finding their legs. After some fast circuit racing, the S-Team was keen to try and grab a stage win, but with just over 3km to go, the team found themselves fighting to keep their GC riders, Svein Tuft and Eric Wohlberg, in the running. Both riders flatted with half a lap to go which meant that the team had to fight hard to drop back and chase each of their leaders back. Thankfully, Svein made it back to the group, and although Wohlberg did still finish a minute behind, he will be given the same time as it was less than 3km to go. At the time, it was not clear if Wohlberg was in or just outside of the 3km mark, so the Yellow-and-Black scrambled hard to get him into the peloton. Although some of the team will lose time due to sacrificing themselves, Tuft and Wohlberg will keep their GC spots.
