The 700.2-kilometer race, commencing in Szombathely on Wednesday, ended on Sunday afternoon in front of the historic Várkert Bazár in Budapest. “We are working on getting more experience and better performances. Our goal is to take a big step forward in the next few years,” an organizer told the Budapest Business Journal about the raceʼs future.
“It’s a special feeling to finish in a big city,” Ivan Stevic from the Serbian National Team told the BBJ. He added that the path in Budapest allowed for large numbers of spectators as well as a great view for the riders. Many teams noted that the extreme heat played a key role over the five days but the different stages made for an interesting ride.
