Visconti did it again !
Tour of Austria 2018.
Prägraten, July 10th– Kitzbühel / Stage 4 – 143.0 km
Stage 4 of Tour of Austria 2018 started today in the glamorous Kitzbühel in Tyrol and Bahrain Merida Pro Cycling Team gets another great victory by Giovanni Visconti at Prägraten im Osttirol!
TBM riders keep on with such a great spirit and goals for victories at Tour of Austria 2018. There is not much to say, then to congratulate Giovanni Visconti for another victory at the long uphill sprint. Two victories for Visconti within 3 days. Chapeau!
A respectful 4thplace for Mark Padun who is uprising his performance at Tour of Austria 2018 and Hermann Pernsteiner at a 2ndplace in GC by getting to just 8 seconds to Hermanns (Israel Cycling Academy), the GC leader after the Stage 4. Giovanni Visconti is still the leader by points and Hermann Pernsteiner keeps his orange jersey as the best Austrian.
It was really great to see Kanstantin Siotsou getting better and stronger on his favourite climbs. Nice to see Kosta uprising after his Giro injury.
Giovanni Visconti: “I’m really happy today” he says speaking in Italian because he wanted to explain better what he feels for the team and especially for the group of riders with him at the Tour of Austria “It’s an amazing group. I’m not at the top of my condition – even if it seems strange – I feel tired, but with such a team everything becomes easier. The guys are always working hard. Matej Mohorič and Kanstantin Siutsou were fantastic in the final…I’m really very very happy”.
Tomorrow is probably the most demanding stage at Tour of Austria 2018. A queen stage from Matrei to Grossglockner. It will definitely be a suffering stage for all riders, but Team Bahrain Merida, with all the chemistry and ambitions are looking forward to the stage through the National Park and the famous Grossglockner the highest mountain in Austria.
TBM sure has another good plan…
