Race report by Guido Thaler

Report on the BIKE 4 Peaks from 17.06. to 20.06.2015 - 4 stages, 270Km and 8,860 Hm from Bad Kleinkirchheim to Nassfeld and Weissensee Carinthia/Austria One of the best results of my career. I am more than satisfied to finish such a strongly occupied bike stage race on the 7th overall position. Now everything was right: My coach (NOM - Training) has my special thanks - he also does a great job with motivation! The first three days everything went very smoothly and the positions 5 to 7 had to be fought out with none other than Karl Platt (Bulls) and David Schöggl (KTM). I gave it my all, but ran out of energy on the last meters of the steep 3rd stage, but I'm not ashamed of that because of the small gap after 4 hard days. The last stage was then too flat for jumps in the overall ranking. The material was great even in the most difficult conditions and I felt especially comfortable in the descents despite fast tires: 5th place in the enduro ranking with our Vertex 999 RSL hardtail.

Excellent performance of the team

The overall performance of our team should be highlighted. With 3 people in the top 15, U23 winner, enduro winner as well as winning the team classification, we have a very strong squad. Especially the performance of the young teammate and Transalp partner Lukas Islitzer makes me hope for another nice tour to Riva in July. We can still work on individual race strategies, but that doesn't detract from the overall performance. I would like to thank all the coaches for their great support! Unfortunately, Manuel Weißenbacher had to retire on the third stage due to a heavy fall. After a concussion and a few bruises he is already on the road to recovery and forms with Anderl Hartmann also a stable team at Transalp of the elite men. Results BIKE 4 Peaks 2015:
