Top Team Vorarlberg performance in the last 14 days in Croatia!
Only by a few centimeters it was not enough for the podium today. Jakub Mareczko (ITA/Vini Zabu) could still push the bike forward on the line. This means that Filippo Fortin finished fourth today.
And yet – it was a very strong start to the season so far what the men from Team Vorarlberg have conjured up on the road. First and foremost Fortin’s stage win and the interim overall lead of the tour. Now it goes in the snow flurry in the direction of home!
Today`s winner is Mihkel Räim (LTU/Mazwoswe Polski) ahead of the German Henri Uhlig (Rad net). The overall victory goes to the Australian Finn Fisher-Black (Jumbo Visma).
Maximilian Kuen finishes third overall in the E-Cycling League Austria 2021!

However, he know to do the best with third place in yesterday’s final run of the E-Cycling League. He missed the victory of Stefan Kirchmair only by one second. The latter also wins the overall standings after nine races ahead of Moran Vermeulen and Kuen.
