Brilliantly done! Alexis Guerin finishes the Tour of Bulgaria in second place overall, Roland Thalmann fourth overall – Alexis Guerin also wins the overall mountain classification!
The last stage of the six-day tour from Chirpan to Momchilgrad over 159 km wrote his own stories today. After about an hour of racing, a big crash occurred in the peloton in which Alexis Guerin, Roland Thalmann and the overall leader of the Tour also went down.
On the penultimate climb, the leading group was caught by the peloton and the pace was kept very high by the riders of Team Vorarlberg, so that the peloton became smaller and smaller. At the beginning of the last climb there were only 10 riders left who could decide the day’s victory among themselves.
