With rank two at the criterium in Germany in the luggage to the 14th Int. Oberösterreich Rundfahrt – Team Vorarlberg wants to fight for the overall victory
It was again a true cycling festival yesterday in the Bavarian Schönberg (GER). 100 laps of 700 meters and 1000 meters of altitude. The race in front of a great crowd of spectators, was organized by the host, the Alsace baker Toni Jung, as well as Dominik Dietrich (Hairstyling Dietrich). Both for many years valuable and loyal sponsors and friends of the team.
Lukas Rüegg on the podium despite a fall
Against the best criterium specialists in Germany, Meiler, Stüssi and Co. had to make the race hard and difficult right from the start. They pulled permanently on the throttle. In one corner the outstanding Lukas Rüegg was cleared by a rider. Back on the bike he sprinted to the excellent second place overall. The German Dario Rapps (RSC Brosch Kempten) won the race. In third place Fabian Danner (Team 54 / 11).
The strong team result was rounded off by Lukas Meiler (4th), Colin Stüssi (7th) and Dominik Amann as 10th from Vorarlberg.
