In the difficult race in the Swiss Jura Mountains, Roland „Roli” Thalmann was unlucky with puncture in the first lap. At this time, twenty riders atacs. Thus without Thalmann. Colin Stüssi and Larry Valvasori were able to occupy this group.

Valvasori, the young Luxembourger, showed a spirited race after a long injury break (knee) but was unable to intervene in the race. Colin Stüssi presents himself in the current good shape and was always able to put the attacking professionals. The ex-team Vorarlberg Santic rider Lukas Ruegg (Swiss Cycling Academy) wins ahead of two Italians, Saroni and Petrucci (FDJ Groupama).

Colin Stüssi gets a strong sixth and is looking forward to his next race with his good shape. Roland Thalmann finishes as 16.

Schelling, Stüssi and Orrico out after a crash in final!

Everything was perfectly prepared for a major attack on the last climb before the finish in Nove Mesto (SLO). Team Vorarlberg Santic dominated the race over 181 kilometers from the start. Roland Thalmann, the strong suisse rider, was able to catch up to four outliers and was 100 kilometers in the group of the day. Although this was provided, but the Cracks from the Vorarlberg Santic Team had prepared everything and were pro active at the front.                                                                             

Crazy – Schelling, Stüssi and Orrico are just cleared away!

Ranked in front on position ten, as it usually crashes in the back, then Patrick Schelling, Colin Stüssi and Davide Orrico are crahed by any riders from behind. Everyone goes to the road and has to let everyone else go. Schelling’s helmet breaks down, but luck in bad luck – all three professionals dont had broken anything (skin abrasions, bruises, …).

Thalmann with strength act still in seventh place!

Although Thalmann was in the lead all day, he still managed to sprint to seventh place. Winner was Marko Kump (SLO/Adria Mobil). Lukas Meiler is 15th, Maximilian Kuen who is 18th. Too bad, because today a podium would have been as fixed as Amen in prayer
