Holler nabs Sibiu Tour prologue as storm hits first post-COVID race

Nikodemus Holler (Bike Aid) won he prologue of the Sibiu Tour as a vicious storm blew through and soaked the cobblestones from the technical course.

“I was nervous all the time, it was getting more and more dry and good guys were starting on the last positions. But there were still four or five corners that were still wet – I’m lucky. I was nervous as hell – I’m not made for being a time trialist. I prefer to go over the line and know already you won. This was not good for my health,” Holler said.

“I always did good in this prologue, I was top 20. I knew I could do a good time, but there was some luck with the weather. Today it was fortune, but still to take it you have to take the opportunity. There were some other guys starting on good roads without rain and I beat them, so it’s a victory.
