At the fast and short first stage from Innsbruck to Brixen the main goal was clear defined: Not loosing time! Frederic and Bob crossed the finish line with the main peloton and showed a solid performance on the first stage. The next stage was already a hard one. With more than 3.000 meters of climbing the favorites had to show their best possible performance in order to keep all chances for a podium place. Unfortunately Glorieux and Michels had some health problems and they lost a lot of time at the 2nd and the following stages. Nevertheless both riders were still highly motivated and fought for stage victories. At the 6th stage the teamwork went out perfectly and Glorieux and Michels took with an outstanding performance the stage victory. At the final prestigious stage to Riva del Garda they scored the 2nd stage victory. A phenomenal success and a huge effort.

Daniel Debertin and Andreas Schmoll showed a constant and strong performance. On each stage they crossed the finish line among the top ten overall. Especially on the hard climbs they went well and felt very comfortable. On the 6th stage Daniel crashed on a high speed descent. Luckily he had only some small injuries and continued the race on the 7th and final stage to Riva del Garda. All in all a huge and outstanding effort of both riders during the whole week.
