Senior Men XC - End of lap 2

Posted by Editor on 9/20/98.

As the men begin their third lap, it is still Meirhaeghe, Dupouey and Chiotti together at the front. The two French riders are taking turns hammering Meirhaeghe, but he is dropping them both on the technical descents. Michael Rasmussen is still 4th, 22 seconds behind, with Bas Van Dooren (NED) and Pallhuber (ITA) together at 43 seconds. Chris Sheppard has dropped back a bit to 23rd, Andreas Hestler is holding steady in 32nd place, Bill Hurley 54th and Peter Wedge 55th. Roland Green has not come through.
