Victory in the team- and mountain classification!
The race was very busy internationally. Many World Championchips participants from Yorkshire used this UCI race as a test! 15 nations from all over Europe at the start, but dominated over the entire race Thalmann u. Co. “Roli” the Team Vorarlberg Santic machine has been in the lead since the start of the race and wins the mountain classification. After his capture shortly before the final Colin Stüssi took over the scepter. He just had to bow to the Pole. Then Patrick Schelling. Strong also Lukas Meiler, who delivered a good job as 16th.
