With the Eddy Merckx Classic in Salzburg, the racing season is traditionally completed. The race, which took place last Sunday, led over 169 km with 2609 meters of altitude. Unfortunate in "Belgian" conditions, rain and cold, but these circumstances did not have an impact at the active team performance. The main goal of the team was to split the peloton right from the start. The 4 team corratec riders Hornetz, Markolf, Oettl and Reisner were in a 12-lead group after their very active starting phase. A technical defect by Bernd Hornetz, however, destroyed the good starting position. In the further course of the race, Martin Reisner and Bernd Hornetz tried to limit the damage together and finally to secure the victory in the team ranking. In addition, Stefan Oettl won the victory in his category. The placements of Team corratec riders:
Michael Markolf 3rd
Stefan Oettl 4th
Martin Reisner 17th
Bernd Hornetz 21nd
This result completes the successful season 2017 perfectly. The attractive and dedicated racing style of the team throughout the season is impressive as well as the perfect support through the team management. We at Corratec are proud to support the team and wish all the best for the upcoming challenges.
