What a performance on final stage of the Tour of Rhodes UCI 2.2
Fireworks on final stage of Tour of Rhodes with three riders in top ten – Lukas Meiler fourth – Stüssi wins mountains jersey – Team Vorarlberg wins team classification
Today you could see the width in the Team Vorarlberg squad on the last stage from Rhodes town to Maritsa (150km)! And it was a super exciting stage. From kilometer 25 on we put all our eggs in one basket and decimated the competition step by step. In the final there were still four riders in the front row with Lukas Meiler, Colin Stüssi, Antoine Berlin and Oscar Cabedo.
All attacks were parried. The main work on today’s Sunday was rewarded with fourth place by Lukas Meiler. In addition Colin Stüssi on rank nine and Antoine Berlin on rank ten.
Stage winner Andreas Miltiadis from Cyprus.
Lukas Meiler is fifth overall – Colin Stüssi takes the mountain jersey – Best team of the Tour!
In the final result it was enough for the hoped for top rankings. Not to think if the prologue would have been counted. Lukas Meiler became fifth overall. Colin Stüssi and Antoine Berlin get UCI points with their top ten placements. Overall winner is the Portuguese Antonio Morgado (Hagens-Berman).
Colin Stüssi also wins the overall mountain classification. And the team wins as a strengthened collective sovereign the team classification.
Now it’s time to head home before the start of the Austrian Cycling League in Leonding (AUT) next Sunday.
