Alexis Guerin with top placement at the season finale!

Team Vorarlberg finishes season at autumn classic Tour de Vendée UCI 1.1 in France – Alexis Guerin with strong performance at last season’s race!


A very long and demanding race over 199.8 km from Les Herbiers to La Roche-sur-Yon was on the daily programme of the Team Vorarlberg pros at the end of the season.


It was the predicted elimination race. At race kilometre 110, the eight-man leading group was caught up by about 25 riders. Among the group was Alexis Guerin, the only Continental Team rider among all the World Tour riders.

Alexis Guerin finished in 16th place, the same time as the day’s winner. Roland Thalmann, Daniel Ganahl and Antoine Aebi finish with the next bigger group.
