Team Vorarlberg Santic win the home race GP Vorarlberg and also UCI Race in Poland CCC Tour Grody Piastowiskie!
That was a convincing performance and great home race win!
The team Vorarlberg Santic went as already announced strongly restricted to the start. Certainly not voluntarily in the home race. Geismayr (scaphoid fracture), Orrico (viral disease), Valvasori (knee problems), Schelling u. Thalmann (national team use at Tour de Romandie / SUI) had to pretend. Nevertheless, they don’t can make the race.
Jannik Steimle, Colin Stüssi, Gordian Banzer and Max Kuen were part of the 13-man top group. Some teams were not represented – therefore the well-known game. Full throttle at the front and full throttle at the rear!
Colin Stüssi repeats home win for Team Vorarlberg Santic and wins the show!
Colin Stüssi (SUI), Stephan Rabitsch (AUT) and Helmut Trettwer (GER) can successfully settle. A super exciting finale on the last two rounds. More than 50,000 seers join the race in the livestream – and many close to the finish line. As the Swiss team rider Stüssi puts his attack in front of the goal, you can hear frenetic cheers, because this attack was with pepper! He storms solo to the finish and wins in a thrilling race before Rabitsch (Felbermayr Wels) and Trettwer (Maloja Pushbikers).

Team Vorarlberg Santic very self confident to sucess in CCC Tour Grody Piastowiskie UCI 2.2 in Poland!
The first stage of the 54th edition of the CCC Tour in Poland became a prey for Team Vorarlberg Santic!
Jannik Steimle wins the individual time trial and thus takes over the yellow jersey of the overall leader. The young German wins with a second advantage over Poland’s Kamil Małecki (CCC Development Team) and Adrian Kurek (Team Hurom). Maximilian Kuen becomes eighth.
“The time trial bike of Argon 18 is really great to drive – so cycling is really fun!” Said Jannik after his first UCI victory of the season.
On the second stage Jannik Steimle will be third in Sprint. Twice in a day on the Podium
At the third stage Steimle sprints to fifth in very difficult conditions (rain and cold). In the overall standings he is in second place at this time.
The last stage again in the rain and with cold temperatures. The team Vorarlberg Santic puts everything on a card at the queen stage (six climbs) and attacks very early. Patrick Schelling and a professional from Poland (Paterski) ride to victory just before the finish. Schelling has to be demolished a few kilometers before (5 degrees and rain – that was not his weather). But Jannik Steimle is fourth in the sprint. In the overall ranking of this prestigious tour, Jannik Steimle will be an excellent third! A great week with a good job of the whole team!
