Attackers victory on the first stage of the Tour de Savoie Mont Blanc UCI 2.2!
Tickets for Team Vorarlberg Santic professionals are laid before the stage over the big Col de Madeleine!
The early attackers fought their luck today. The Swiss Joab Schneiter wins solo on the first stage from Annemasse to Praz sur Arly over 109 kilometers ahead of the French Thomas Champion.
Guerin and Thalmann on par with Pierre Rolland!
Werner Salmen – sporting director: “Today we were unlucky with some defects at the beginning. And this is exactly where the breakaway group goes. The cards are now shuffled. Guerin and Thalmann finished with the favorites as 13th and 14th immediately behind the two-time Tour de France stage winner Pierre Rolland (B&B Hotel Vital Concept). Stüssi follows closely behind. Tomorrow two super difficult half-stages with many, many meters in altitude will follow. Also over the Col de la Madeleine. Here we will see other actors! “
In the team ranking, the Vorarlberg Santic team is already fourth. It’s ready for the next few days!
Squad: Roland Thalmann, Colin Stüssi, Alexis Guerin, Lukas Meiler, Jack Burke, Johannes Schinnagel
