Team Vorarlberg Cracks start next week with the Umag Trophy UCI 1.2 in Croatia!
Tyrolean professionals Wildauer and Kuen condemned to stay at home due to the entry regulations!
Normally, the sport should connect. The Corona pandemic creates it again that athletes from another province in Austria are treated differently, although top fit and Corona negative. In this case true for the two Tyroleans Markus Wildauer and Maximilian Kuen. They miss not only the first race days, but also the integrated team training camp. Too bad for the guys, but they will get their form back home!

The race next Wednesday in the small town on the northwest coast of Istria over 154 kilometers, is the first real gauge for the men from the mountains. The team arrives next Monday in the “Team Bubble”, and will be in Istria until mid-March for the training camp.
