3rd Stage TransAlp: There Is Still Something Wrong With It.

With exhaustion in the bones there was the 73,64km long race track from Ischgl to Scoul (Swiss) to be made today. Thereby, 2,504m uphill- and 2,655m downhill in altitude had to be managed. Right from the start it went extremely uphill untill about 1,400m altitude to the Idjoch, which is with 2,737m height the highest point of the TRANSALP at all.
Michael Opper and Martin Mootz could secure themselves a place between the 50 best men. During the downhill after the second best Martin Monz had to take a drawback of 40 min. due to a damaged backwheel. They were heavily disappointed, but there was nothing to be done about it. In spite of Michael OpperĀ“s prophecy that a bad day always follows a good day, they are ranking now 62th place in the overall standings.
