Not bad, not perfect Weekend for Team Vorarlberg!
Team Vorarlberg not blessed with luck at the King of the Lake and at the Cycling league finals – Reutimann finishes fourth in overall
King of the Lake this year a weather lottery
It was super tough conditions at the 12th edition of this European-wide individual time trial classic. On the 47 kilometers long round around the beautiful Attersee, one waited in vain for the sun. Rain, wind and cold made this time trial a lottery. This was not to the advantage of Team Vorarlberg cracks Zoidl, Ganahl and Meiler. They took eighth to tenth place in the final standings. Winner the German Julian Braun (Team Sauerland).
Final of the cycling league in Kufstein – Just past is also past with ranks five and six!
Also in Kufstein a hard battle in the rain and cold. In the race over 140 kilometers around Kufstein, Team Vorarlberg launched the pace again and again in the second half of the race. First Guerin and Stari can break away in the last of four laps. After catching up, six riders attack with Zoidl. Guerin can catch up in the last kilometer, but can’t do anything in the sprint. He finishes sixth behind Riccardo Zoidl. Winner the Tyrolean Emanuel Zangerle (Team Cycling Tirol KTM).
“Although the riders have tried everything, it was not meant to be today. All the teams were looking at us, but the track was just not hard enough to bring about a clearer selection. Now, at the end of September, another season highlight awaits with the CRO Race in Croatia. Here they can really prove themselves again!” Werner Salmen – Sports Director
