Maximilian Kuen secures sprint jersey at 2nd stage at Giro Regione de Friuli UCI 2.2!
The Tyrolean Team Vorarlberg Santic professional Maximilian Kuen was super active today on the second stage from Variano di Basiliano to San Marco over 164.5 kilometers. True to his motto “Max Kuen and Friends”, he set off with four other attackers and won both sprint scores. He is leading in this intermediate ranking before the third stage!
Unfortunately, a collision with an accompanying motorcycle also decides the stage!
On the final lap, a motorcycle collides with the field in thirty place. Many riders have to go down. Among other things, unfortunately, two of the team favorites of the Vorarlberg Santic team – Roland Thalmann and Colin Stüssi. Thalmann can limit the time damage, Stüssi loses time. Alexis Guerin just got through.
But even Guerin cannot finish today happily. He is about to sprint in the leading group when a rider falls in front of him. So Guerin`s chances of victory are over today. The Pole Krawczyk (CCC Team) wins.
Tomorrow the supposedly hardest section with two mountains in the final. Here the knives are sharpened for Alexis Guerin.
