Captain Roland Thalmann Top Ten at Tour du Doubs UCI 1.1 – Fortin with a big crash in Haut de France UCI 2.2!
Crash Sunday for Team Vorarlberg – Roland Thalmann Top Ten at Tour du Doubs UCI 1.1
Fortin crashes heavily at A Travers les Haut de France UCI 2.2
It was all set for the podium on the final stage of the three-day tour. Lukas Meiler showed his top form again today and helped his team colleagues by his presence in the leading group. He was only caught a few kilometers before the finish. In the sprint preparation Filippo Fortin is cleared by two UNO-X riders shortly before the finish – he must go down at top speed.
This can always happen, but already yesterday Martin Meiler and Johannes Schinnagel were taken off the bike by the Norwegians. Team Vorarlberg will answer the Vikings in the next races in a sportive way! Now it is important that the wounds heal again for the next race at the Tour of South Bohemia next week.
Thalmann also strong at Tour du Doubs – Adria Moreno also with heavy fall
This 35th edition of the classic Tour du Doubs UCI 1.1 Morteau to Pontarlier over 190 kilometers had it all. Already after 30 kilometers the race was over for Adria Moreno. The Spaniard was literally shot down by a competitor in a descent. Currently Moreno is still in hospital for examinations.
Also today the Swiss Roland Thalmann provides a great performance and becomes again as the best Continental rider tenth.
Winner is the Frenchman Dogan (AG2R) ahead of Hailu (Wanty Group) and Paquot (Bingoal Pauwels).
