Great start at the Tour d`Eure et Loir UCI 2.2 – Filippo Fortin in third place!
Roland Thalmann top at the Mallorca Challenge!
Finally a real tour again for the men of Team Vorarlberg! After the one-day races and numerous intensive training sessions, the six professionals from Vorarlberg presented themselves wide awake today at the first stage over 120 kilometers of the Tour d`Eure et Loir in France.
The young guard of Team Vorarlberg showed a lot of commitment in the race today – Dominik Amann and Felix Meo were able to score points in the first sprint classification as well as Lukas Meiler in the mountain classification.
After several breakaway attempts, the peloton was closed about 10 kilometres before the finish. So everything was set for the sprint of the day.
Filippo Fortin sprinted to third place!
The German Kim Alexander Heiduk (Team Lotto-Kern Haus) won ahead of the Frenchman Paul Penhoet (Groupama-FDJ Continental) and the Team Vorarlberg rider Filippo Fortin.
Tomorrow follows the second stage over 187 kilometers from Courville-Sur-Eure to Dreux.
Squad: Dominik Amann, Lukas Meiler, Colin Stüssi, Filippo Fortin, Felix Meo, Markus Wildauer;
