Young Pernsteiner leads a strong TBM at Tour of Austria 2018.
Team BAHRAIN MERIDA will come strong to Tour of Austria (from July 7th to July 14th) with a highly motivated team that is a mix of high experienced riders and young riders with a huge potential. All riders that had great results this season and riders that have been a strong support for such a season of TBM.
The 7oth edition of the Tour of Austria starts on the 7th of July in Feldkirch on the very west of Austria. A tour with 7 various stages and big challenges for BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team.
Harald Morscher, TBM sports director, a director that knows each corner and climb of his homeland expressed his optimistic thoughts for the upcoming week in Austria:
“We have given the opportunity to Hermann Pernsteiner, our young rider to be our leader for the GC as Austrians see him as a “local hero” here. Mark Padun, another young rider of our team will be his “follower” and our back up to be save in some and possible unconfutable situations. The parcour is very hard, so we are also ready for new situations and possible surprises on each stage.
Matej Mohorič might have his big chances, Giovanni Visconti and Enrico Gasparotto are keeping a great form and are always hungry for big results, but they also share their enormous experience to the young riders in our team. Kanstantin Siutsou, will hopefuly have a good comeback after his injury before the first stage of Giro. Antonio Nibali is there as a great support with Kosta for all stages and the demanding Kitzbühler Horn.
Our goals and targets are high and we have right to be optimistic for each stage and for the overall”
