One thing is as certain this year as the Amen in prayer. The tour will be decided on the last seven kilometers, if it goes steeply up to the Kitzbühler Horn. Excitement is thus provided on all seven stages. In Wels, the tour starts this Saturday with a time trial 2.5 kilometers. There are varied and difficult stages with the mountain arrivals Großglockner and Kitzbühler Horn.

Team Vorarlberg Santic does not just want to surprise!
“The Tour is occupied qualitatively strong as no longer. There are really big names and numerous professionals who are on the direct jump in the world top to Austria. That makes a statement difficult to a realistic goal setting. We are wide-ranging and have one or more riders on board for every terrain. With a bit of racing luck, we can decide on one or the other stage. We will not hide with warranty. We have never done that, and will be so again this year. On the 12th of July on the horn you can lose everything right before the finish, but also drive forward with a good day. We are ready!” Sport director – Werner Salmen
