Steffen Radochla grabbed his best result in an Euskaltel jersey in Friday's Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen.
The German veteran has struggled for results and consistency in his first - and probably last - season with the team, but finally showed signs of form when given the chance yesterday. The 192km Europe Tour event came down to a sprint finish, and Belgian Jens Debusschere emerged victorious to take his very first win in the professional ranks.
Radochla, aided by the young Jon Aberasturi, came through for a decent seventh - his first top ten in his short Euskaltel career. Aberasturi eventually came in 21st.
