Perfect season start for Team Vorarlberg!
Great start to the season for Team Vorarlberg! Newcomer Filippo Fortin sprints to second place at the 9th Int. Umag Trophy UCI 1.2 in Croatia
Was that again a race to start the season. At the ninth edition over 154 kilometers of the Umag Trophy 29 (!!) teams registered. Among them also some class higher Pro Continental teams.
Goal: Drive aggressively and “no crash”!
On the 22-kilometer circuit, three riders broke away from the field in the first laps and were able to build up a lead of more than two minutes.
After the start of the last two laps, the pace in the peloton was increased and the leading group was quickly caught up. It was all set for the measure sprint in Umag.
Filippo Fortin sensationally in second place at the start of the season!
In the sprint of the peloton the Italian top sprinter Jakub Mareczko (Vini Zabù) won ahead of newcomer Filippo Fortin (Team Vorarlberg) and Tomas Barta (Topforex – ATT Investments).
In his first season race, Fortin was perfectly put in position by his team colleagues. The whole team is “mega happy” about the successful start of the season. Guys – good job done!
