Ski hillclimb power from the Montafon for Team Vorarlberg – ski mountaineer Daniel Ganahl enters professional cycling!
Steep uphill it goes in ski mountaineering! So also the sporty career of Daniel Ganahl. The 24-year-old Vorarlberger from Gaschurn in the Montafon, provided this year nationally and internationally for great results. Since the young ÖSV athlete has already gained his experience on the racing bike in various marathons and mountain races in recent years, the team managers became aware of him last year.
Thomas Kofler – Team Manager: “Daniel is a really great athlete and type. He has a real engine, especially on the mountain, because ski mountaineers have to go permanently to the performance limit. He will still have to work on his endurance and technique, but he has the best prerequisites and an optimal environment. The first meeting last week at the photo shoot with the other riders was already a good adjustment. He will make his debut at the race in Wels at the end of April. Daniel is already looking forward to his home race at the GP Vorarlberg on May 1st in Nenzing. We wish Daniel a great start with us!”
Daniel Ganahl: “I have been in the Austrian national team of ski mountaineers for three years. I have been able to improve permanently and have also noticed this physical progress on the bike in summer training. During last year’s three challenges against the pros at “Austria turns the wheel” on the Großglockner, the Kitzbühler Horn and the Ötztal Glacier, I noticed that I was strong. This brought me into contact with Team Vorarlberg, and I am grateful for this opportunity. I want to integrate well into the team, help my team colleagues and, above all, learn a lot!”

Team Vorarlberg leader Alexis Guerin out injured for longer – Black Easter Sunday at La Roue Tourangelle UCI 1.1
The strong race of the Team Vorarlberg cracks was lost in the light of the events in yesterday’s spring classic La Roue Tourangelle in Tours (FRA) over 204 kilometers. Swiss Pro Roland Thalmann finished the race in 24th position, but the team from Vorarlberg was already active in the early stages and launched some attacks.
Radio Tour reports: “Fortin and Moreno out after crash”.
Towards the middle of the race, co-favorite Filippo Fortin and Adria Moreno were involved in a mass crash – “out of race” for the two reports Radio Tour shortly afterwards. Fortin gets away with some bruises, as well as Adrio Moreno after a check in the hospital. Suspicion of a slight hand or arm injury, as well as bruises.
Racing luck where are you? Alexis Guerin falls after crash longer out!
The Easter Sunday should still take a more inglorious end. The finale of the race, which featured numerous World Tour teams, had long since begun when a rider at the front of the field went down. Team success guarantor Alexis Guerin was riding directly behind him and had no chance to avoid the crash. He remains motionless. Only after first aid can he be transported to the hospital. The sobering initial diagnosis: a fracture of the shoulder (acromion head), impairment of the patella tendon and a concussion. Thus, Guerin is out for a long time.
Winner of the race are Arnaud Demare (FRA/Groupama-FDJ). Second Nacer Bouhanni (FRA/Arkea Samsic), Third Marc Serreau (FRA/AG2R Citröen).
“After a great start to the season, we are currently having to take some real knocks. But the sport teaches us life over and over again. All three drivers are seasoned professionals. You can see that the stakes are high because many races can’t take place due to the pandemic. That’s why they’re taking more risks and pushing hard. Now it’s a matter of curing the injuries and rebuilding. The next races in France were unfortunately cancelled because of the lockdown. So we will have a training camp and start racing again at the end of April. The season will last all the longer in the fall – and by then Guerin u. Co. will be making a splash again!” Team Manager Thomas Kofler
Squad 20th Int. La Roue Tourangelle: Adria Moreno, Roland Thalmann, Filippo Fortin, Maximilian Kuen, Markus Wildauer, Alexis Guerin, Colin Stüssi;
The Easter Bunny should also bring UCI points against world stars! Team Vorarlberg with gebioMized customization to the 20th Edition of La Roue Tourangelle UCI 1.1!
For a long time it was not clear whether the race can be held despite the lockdown in France or not. Yesterday, the commitment of the organizer. The spring classic over 204 kilometers on Easter Sunday with the finish in Tours, promises to be a hot affair. Sprinter teams against classic teams. “Crazy Sprinter” Nacer Bouhanni (Arkea) against Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ). But Team Vorarlberg sprinter Filippo Fortin also wants to have his say here!
Or the escapees will manage the victory. Therefore, sports director Florent Horeau provides six men with a good nose for the situation with Roland Thalmann, Colin Stüssi, Markus Wildauer, Alexis Guerin and Adria Moreno.
18 (!) teams from the World Tour and Pro Continental category guarantee a tough race. The last hours of the race will be broadcast on Eurosport, as well as on some other TV stations!
With “gebioMized” measure adjustment to UCI points!
A successful week lies behind Team Vorarlberg. With dream weather the past days away photos and recordings were made in the region Vorarlberg. Franziska and Niklas of the new saddle partner “gebioMized”, have yesterday all 15 professionals with a super professional bike and saddle fitting in the RadHaus Rankweil for the long season again perfectly adjusted!
