Team Vorarlberg at 71st edition Paris – Bourges UCI 1.1 not in the top field – Youngsters Stari and Ganahl convince with strong performance
After the impressive performance of the team at the Tour of Croatia UCI 2.1 last week, today was the second last race day in the 2021 calendar. The 71st edition of Paris – Bourges UCI 1.1 over 198 kilometers was peppered with big names (Jasper Stuyven, Pascal Ackermann, Arnaud Demare, Nacer Bouhanni, Bob Jungels, Bryan Coquard, and many more…).
The course of the race would have been different, but cycling is not a concert of wishes. Debons gives up weakened and starts the journey home with flu symptoms. Thalmann falls, Stüssi also does not finish.
Stari and Ganahl get motivation for the winter!
And still – today especially the Youngesters were convincing. Besides Guerin and Aebi, the two young Vorarlberg neo-pros Linus Stari and Daniel Ganahl showed a really strong race and finished after 4h 20min at the same time as the sprint winner Jordi Meuus (BEL/Bora-Hansgrohe). In the sprint the two could not do anything big (38th Stari, 55th Ganahl), but Werner Salmen the sportive director was more than happy about this performance!
The last race of the season will take place on Saturday at the Tour de Vendee UCI 1.1!
Squad: Daniel Ganahl, Linus Stari, Alexis Guerin, Roland Thalmann, Colin Stüssi, Antoine Debons, Antoine Aebi
