But although all the cyclists were true heroes, one sporting gesture stood out in particular. When Jure Jovanovič from Pogi Team fell in the sprint, he helped fellow competitor Miho Otoničar to get up and bring him to the finish line together. Instead of sprinting alone, Jure selflessly helped Miho. The move was rewarded with a standing ovation and the move of the day award.
