We started in Lienz under good weather conditions at 09.30 o’clock. The pace was not that high at the beginning, but I couldn’t hold the first group of three riders again. In the entrance to the Lesachtal we then rode with full speed and there the three escaped me. Then I really wanted to catch up when the terrain flattened a bit. Unfortunately I wasn’t successful. I wasted too much energy with that action and I could no longer hold the chasing group in Obertilliach. About 5km before the finish, the second group of chasers caught me and I took the overall 12th place.
