Team Katusha’s rider Egor Silin took 6th place in the final general classification of the Tour of Austria, which ended today in Bregenz. The winner of the race was Spanish rider Victor De La Parte from Team Vorarlberg. Second place on the overall podium went to Ben Hermans from BMC (+1.21), while Jan Hirt from CCC Sprandi Polkowice closed the Top-3 (+1.32). Egor Silin lost 3 minutes to the GC winner.

 

The last stage of the Tour of Austria was held today between Innsbruck and Bregenz. The distance of 184,3 km included 3 climbs, which provoked a number of attacks. Team Katusha was very active during the entire day: first it was Eduard Vorganov, who attacked several times; later it was Egor Silin who went in the breakaway. After an attack with 20 km to go Silin was in a group of leaders with two riders: Tom-Jelte Slagter from Cannondale – Garmin and Linus Gerdemann from Cult Energy Pro Cycling. This group managed to organize themselves and to get a 1 minute advantage. Even with 4 km to go, the group of Silin still had a 40 second advantage, but finally the peloton caught them not far from the finish line.

 

"I am happy with the way our team did today’s race. We were in front in every moment, we attacked a lot. The stage was quite hard and provided some possibilities to try to change something in the general classification. Thus, Team Katusha did everything they could to realize these possibilities. Eduard Vorganov and Egor Silin attacked a lot of times. In the final Egor had a really good chance to win the stage and to move up in GC. But with 2 km to go the peloton neutralized this break. Anway, his 6th place in overall is a very nice result. In addition, we leave the Tour of Austria with TTT victory and two stage podiums – not bad at all," said Team Katusha sports director Gennady Mikhaylov.

 

The final stage ended with a bunch sprint, won by Moreno Moser from Cannondale – Garmin. He outsprinted David Tanner from IAM Cycling and Clément Venturini from Cofidis. Team Katusha’s Angel Vicioso was 9th.
