4th Stage TransAlp: There Are Times When It Works Again!

A 25km long and tough ascend had to be managed at the beginning of the stage. For Martin Mootz and Michael Opper this meant hard work. Anyhow, they overtook the leading women's team and could find their place far in the front of the field. The last part of the race they felt both the exertion of the recent stages. Michael Opper fought down his stomach aches and a partially fractured rib taken from the second stage. Martin Mootz had back problems with the bumping downhills and the legs were tired, too. All in all they were satisfied with their performance today, being on place 56 in the overall standings.
Tomorrow the kings stage is waiting with 110km and about 3,500m in altitude uphill. After that Riva del Garda is not so far anymore.
