Men’s podium of the 1st stage

Unfortunately today was not a good stage for me as I had NO power in my legs. I guess it’s still the aftermathes of my food poisoning 10 days ago which makes no energy arriving in my engine (= legs) and let me suffer all time. I will NEVER eat a piece of south tyrolean ham….


Ok, I have taken this yesterday because today I have had other problems today!


Thanks Tofol for taking care about me and watining even if I know that you could have overtaken our winning friends Dimitris and Cameron very easy 🙂 We were in 4th position until at the  “Fliedererscharte” (2190m) there was a chance to overtake the guys from Liechtenstein in the rocky descent. Only 2km before the finish line in “Lech am Arlberg” (we could already hear the Speakers) we caught the young Spanish Scott Team and sprinted to 2nd! The weather was really good for running – not too cold and not very hot. Maybe the only perfect thing today for me 😉

Find here my move of the 1st stage and the complete results.

Tomorrow we have to run (or are allowed to enjoy?!?!) 25km spiced with 1.900 altimeters.


Finish in Lech am Arlberg (AUT)
