Aivaras showed during the UCI 2.2U stage race in Flanders that he is in good condition and has a great fighting spirit. The Lithuanian & Baltic U23 men champion attacked the field several times and was in the decisive strong move going clear on the Kemmelberg during the first stage and he was present in the good one the next day too. With the14km long TT on the third day he confirmed his good form and secured a 3rd place in the general classification. The last stage ended in a sprint with Joonas Kurits finishing 5th and Madis Mihkels 6th. Both riders were unlucky with a crash on the first day, but showed finally that they are a power to count with in the finals, just this time they lost each other and made a sprint each on their side of the main field.
