Jack Burke: “Race Around Austria is definitely one of the best experiences of my career. Under normal circumstances we could not do a race like this until after our cycling career, but this year gave us that opportunity. Now I am happy that we are going on a wild ride with my team members through one of the most beautiful countries in the world! “
Felix Meo: “I’m really looking forward to RAA. After a very strange year we are happy to be able to ride such a difficult and equally beautiful race. I come from New Zealand, live in Milan and will now get to know Austria in just under three days. Who can do that😊?
A big thank you to the team who worked hard day and night to prepare everything so that we can get on this adventure quickly and safely! “
