TBM riders kept the great chemistry and winning momentum for another victory at Tor of Austria 2018. A victory of Giovanni Visconti, who was the runner up at the yesterdays’ Stage 1.
Giovanni Visconti who was so hungry for the victory after nine 2ndplaces he achieved in last two seasons. His last victory was in September 2017. at Giro del Emilia, but this one was his first for Bahrain Merida Pro Cycling Team.
There is not too much to say then just to give you the emotional expression of Giovanni Visconti:
“I finally won! I was going through times that were not so easy for me, because when you feel strong, but you don’t take a victory – due to bad luck or racing situations – the risk is that your mind gets depressed. But I had the strength and the determination of endurance and I didnt’t want to give up. I’ve always been on the podium in the last four races and finally I can take this victory. I thank a lot to my team for supporting me today. Gasparotto and Siutsou controlled the race and Mohorič did a great work of in the final. He showes to be a great champion in this too. He brought me until the last curve, then I gave everything. It was not easy to stand in that very long straight, but I closed my eyes and just thought about the victory and I took it!»
Giovanni Visconti took both the overall red jersey and the points classification jersey after today’s victory in the Stage 2 of Tour of Austria.
