Thomas Steger and Lena Berlinger win 9th Int. Trans Vorarlberg Triathlon
Cool temperatures at the beginning, but hot races today in Vorarlberg! On the super-fast track, everything was set up for the decisions in the Austrian Time Trial Series and the Trans Vorarlberg Triathlon. Also exciting is the comparison of the elite riders against the triathletes on the identical route over a distance of 45 kilometers (400 meters in altitude).
Austrian Time Trial Series – Third place for Team Vorarlberg Santic!
In the last race of the RadBundesliga over 45 kilometers the ex-Team Vorarlberg Santic rider Johannes Hirschbichler (Raiffeisen Tirol) roared to the day’s victory with a fabulous ride and an average of 47.9 km / h (!!). He wins in 56 minutes and 17 seconds. Second, 14 seconds behind Daniel Auer (AUT/WSA). Third of the Team Vorarlberg Santic Legionnaire from France Alexis Guerin. He was just 23 seconds short of victory. Maximilian Kuen is also strong today in sixth place. Tenth Johannes Schinnagel ahead of Roland Thalmann and Lukas Meiler – a podium in the home race and a good team result.
Alexis Guerin: „In the beginning I didn’t feel so good. But in the final I was able to make up second by second. Ten kilometers longer, then it would have been enough to win!”
