Make or break today on the GROSSGLOCKNER !

This is what will most probably decide our fate in the Tour of Austria:

How good will BEN HERMANS be today when he will face this :

What: The highest mountain in The Austrian Alps.

Altitude of the finish: 2428 meters ( The peak of this monster is actually 3798 meters)

The climb : 17.4 km and 8.9 percent average . ( The main climb is less then 14 k with close to 10 average)

There is no mystery behind our chances here in the 4th stage of the Tour of Austria. It all falls on the shoulders ( legs) of our GC guy , Belgian Ben Hermans.

Yesterday, in the tough 3rd stage he was attacked repeatedly by the riders from team Movistar and others but was able to hold .” I jumped straight in the wheels when they attacked me” he said. “Thankfully , I had good legs. Today I do hope I will be able to sustain as well”.

This is a pretty short stage so expect pretty hectic pace.

How can can the team help Ben Hermans?

A breakaway may be a possibility and certainly all of our riders will do everything to stay with him and protect the leader as far that they can go. Expect our second best climber here Awet Gebremedhin, to keep Pace on the climb with Ben - the furthest.

It’s a hard challenge for Ben. His rivals here are of great quality.,Vlasov from Gasprom and Fernandez from Movistar to name a few.

Ben is 12 sec behind the leader but so scores of other riders.,Forget about that. The GC picture will make ch more clear on the top of the rainy cold GROSSGLOCKNER.

Yalla, Team.
