Welcome back to Innsbruck, ladies and gentlemen, from where the riders will soon start to stage number two!

As yesterday, we'll have a mountain-top finish today, but this time with an easier rest of the stage. In fact, the first 60km will be almost completely flat - and even slightly descending on average - until we reach the first intermediate sprint in Kirchbichl.

From there, we will have two consecutive hills within just a few kilometer, as the riders will sprint for 3rd category KoM points in Itter after 67 kilometers, with a category 4 sprint just 6km later in Hopfgarten.

We'll then soon reach the surroundings of KitzbĂĽhel, where the riders will do two and a half laps before the final ascent. At the first passage in KitzbĂĽhel, there will be the second intermediate sprint of the stage, after 106 kilometers. 55 kilometers will be remaining from there - whereof about 45 slightly undulating.

And then, the dessert awaits the riders - the final climb up to KitzbĂĽheler Horn. The riders won't go all the way up, as the finish line is at the "Alpenhaus", at about 1,700m above sea level. But with the climb containing sections with slopes of way beyond 10%, this one is still much harder than yesterday's final ascent!

So it's definitely a stage for the climbers - and who says climber says pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin first of all. The Moldovan was the strongest on this stage last year - but still lost the stage to a breakaway rider by a few seconds. After yesterday's stage win, we definitely can expect him to be among the strongest again - but who are his main competitors?

According to the bookmakers, he'll mainly have to fight against pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman - both did really well yesterday, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, who get two stars. This holds as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, who will surely want to strike back after yesterday's big loss. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy was disappointing as well, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya and especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer did a good job - these four round off the list.

But many more could win this stage - especially if a breakaway gets through, as last year. And local hero pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler surely wants to get a better result than yesterday - can he do it? We'll soon find out!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_01.jpg

The riders are ready to definitely leave Innsbruck behind. It's a pretty sunny day, so everything is set for a great stage! Let's go!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_02.jpg

And right at the exit of Innsbruck, we get the first attacks! We can spot pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak up front. The latter surely has the perfect name for a mountaintop finish - although I don't know how it's actually pronounced in Hungarian.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_03.jpg

We can't quite make out whether these riders are attacking or chasing - probably it's a bit of both. Salvadorian champion pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera leads them, ahead of local talent pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Rodriguez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Juodvalkis, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_04.jpg

Indeed, some were attacking, and the others finally couldn't hold them back! We have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych chasing the four leaders now - 25" ahead of the pack, 24" behind the front. Not a very comfortable situation yet!

However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Juodvalkis has now clearly slowed down - and the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Repsol - Netflix boys are completely gone. Weird strategy...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_05.jpg

After 20 kilometers, the nine frontrunners have merged into a single group. And with their gap of now 2'45", they surely are our breakaway of the day.

However, some might have chosen the wrong stage to attack; in fact, none of them is worthy to be called a climber, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit being the strongest of all having a mountain stat of just 72. He's however a pretty good puncheur - let's see if he can use that to his advantage on the two mid-stage KoM sprints!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless is quite strong on the hills as well, but he's among the group's weakest on the mountains. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera is the second best climber, ahead of flat beast pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych and local youngster pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak are next, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen definitely won't enjoy the final climb.

But with no real climber being in this group, it's rather unlikely that they'll make it to the line - except if the pack gives them a tremendous advantage. With pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit being the best placed rider in the GC, almost 10 minutes down, none of them should seriously endanger pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin's jersey, though.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_06.jpg

The pack is really not worried yet, setting a rather low pace. It's the helpers of the main GC candidates taking command: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Goldstein, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Hodeg, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Golovash, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Zabel, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Maksimov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Vaquera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Juodvalkis - quite some sprinters working on the flat. The time limit shouldn't worry them today, as they're likely to stay inside the pack until the start of the final ascent.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_07.jpg

Besides the gap going up and up, nothing happens on the next flat kilometers, and so the escapees already arrive at the intermediate sprint. They don't seem to be interested in the points, though, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi just happening to take the maximum:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi - 6
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera - 4
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit - 2

They will soon reach the foot of the first hill, while the peloton still has a pretty long way to go until this point.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_08.jpg

The KoM sprint in Itter will offer 3rd category points, more precisely 6, 4 and 2, for the first three riders on top. It's a short and rather easy one - perfect for the better puncheurs?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_09.jpg

As soon as the roads really start rising - as seen before, the steepest inclines are right after the start of the climb - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall already starts pushing hard. He's surely motivated in his home tour, but to arrive first on top, it's maybe a bit early to launch already now.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_10.jpg

Meanwhile, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Hodeg leads the pack as they arrive at the intermediate sprint as well. Their deficit has grown to 10'16" - meaning pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is the virtual race leader by now!

Of course, this advantage won't be enough for the German to really claim the race lead - but should they still be ten minutes ahead when starting the final climb - who knows...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_11.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall is still leading the front group with 800m to the top. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless has the perfect position to take these points - let's see if he can do so!

By the way, only pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit has picked up some points yesterday, while leading the pack's chase. However, to have a chance of taking the jersey, the group would have to make it to the line.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_12.jpg

But first, there's another line - one that is crossed first by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless, narrowly outsprinting pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit picks up the last points.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless - 6 (6)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak - 4 (4)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit - 2 (6)

This makes move up pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit to shared 6th place in the KoM standings.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_13.jpg

And while the pack has just started the first climb, the breakaway will soon tackle the second one up to Hopfgarten. It's even shorter than the first one, yet a tad steeper on average. But still an easy one overall.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_14.jpg

Wow, look at this! The whole village - and probably many more - must be alongside the roads here, giving the riders kind of a GT mountain stage feeling! Who will be motivated by them to claim the points on top? pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit already launches his sprint as soon as they reach the uphill!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_15.jpg

And surprise, surprise - he pulls it through! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless comes second this time, having had a rather bad position at the start of the hill.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit - 5 (11)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless - 3 (9)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera - 1 (1)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen are dropped on this hill, but they'll make their way back on the next few kilometers.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_16.jpg

And the peloton? Well, they're still not hurrying at all. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Hodeg does most of the work, leading them over the top of the first hill 11'58" behind the breakaway - the pack lost almost two minutes on that climb!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_17.jpg

And it's even worse - or even better for the escapees - as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Pokälä crosses the line in Hopfgarten with a 12'46" deficit! His team must have decided that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen is too weak anyway, else he shouldn't be leading!

80 kilometers still to go - if the pack doesn't want to give the win to the breakaway like they did last year, they really should start closing that gap now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_18.jpg

And yet another team seems to sabotage their breakaway riders, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Garcia Cortina is pushing quite hard! But well, we saw that both pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar riders were dropped on an easy hill, so it's understandable that they'll rather focus on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour now.

And the gap is indeed shrinking, having gone down by 90" within 5 kilometers!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_19.jpg

The front group has arrived in KitzbĂĽhel, where we see the start of the final climb up to KitzbĂĽheler Horn - but there are still two laps to go until they'll actually turn left here!

But the second interemdiate sprint is right ahead - on top of a small hill.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_20.jpg

Whether it was that slight uphill or the points that made the riders sprint this time, we don't know. But we do know that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit gets maximum points:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit - 6 (8)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi - 4 (10)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera - 2 (6)


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_21.jpg

Meanwhile, it looks like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran is striving for revenge! Three pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Minions are currently leading the pack: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Hodeg, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Bjerg and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Flaksis. They have brought down the deficit to 9 minutes - 50 kilometers are left!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_22.jpg

One lap later, the men with suspenders have further intensified the chase, adding pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Champoussin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Albert - but to not much avail! The gap has only shrunk by 40" on these 20 kilometers, hence still being above 8 minutes! With 25 kilometers to go, that will be a hard piece of work for the strong climbers, if they want to catch the escapees!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_23.jpg

The breakaway riders only have 20 kilometers left now, and are still collaborating really well! A bit less than 10km to the start of the final climb - let's see if that advantage will suffice!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_24.jpg

That one will hurt! 12 kilometers with almost 10% of average slopes, and without any easier section - the riders will soon be in the red zone, just like the profile!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_25.jpg

And here we go! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit leads the escapees into the first slopes of the climb up to KitzbĂĽheler Horn - let's see if he can capitalize on his slightly superior climbing skills compared to the others - or if the top climbers will still catch them!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_26.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall is highly motivated for sure - maybe over-motivated? He immediately launches the first attack, pulling just pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych with him! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is currently waiting, well knowing about the length and difficulty of that mountain - he'll still have plenty of time to get back, even without wasting his energy on the initial slopes.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_27.jpg

But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall only has one goal: shaking everyone off! After the pace was too high for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, only pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera is now staying with the young Austrian! What a race that would be for him if he can pull it through!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_28.jpg

9 minutes later - yeah, they have again lost some time - Cuban champion pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez leads the pack into this climb as well. Gaining 9 minutes on 12 kilometers seems like a really hard task - but given the steepness, it might still be possible for the top climbers to win that stage!

All of the top GC contenders seem to be well positioned, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Faiers and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz being the worst placed around 50th position.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_29.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall has finally stopped sprinting, and as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera didn't want to keep the pace that high, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych has been able to come back. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak is currently setting the pace in the chasing group - already 1'35" behind, though!

The peloton is still clocked at 9 minutes, they haven't even gained a single second so far! And only 9 kilometers are left!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_30.jpg

And now it's even pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych attacking, thereby dropping pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall is able to keep the Russian's wheel, while the chasers have gained back a few seconds in the meantime.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_31.jpg

We can clearly see that the pace isn't really high in the peloton, still led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Zabel in 3rd position...

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin and race leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin are the best positioned top climbers right now, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz nearby, too.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_32.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is off! The German has come to the conclusion that his companions don't have what it takes to get the leading trio back, so he attacks this group with 8 kilometers to go.

Up front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera has almost caught up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall again - these three are playing yo-yo.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_33.jpg

But as soon as the Salvadorian champion is back, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall attacks again, looking to finally go solo!

However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is closing in pretty fast now, having reduced the gap to under a minute already!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_34.jpg

Further down the road, we rather have to speak of "just under ten minutes", as the peloton is still losing seconds to the breakaway! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez seemingly can't go any faster, so that stage win seems to be out of reach for the top climbers today!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin doesn't really seem to care - it's not too bad for him if there aren't any bonus seconds available for his strongest competitors. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran are all there, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal a bit further behind. Which is true as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya's main U25 opponent.

When speaking of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, we can see that his presumed top domestique pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov is already quite some positions behind his leader - he didn't do any work, yet he's already done...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_35.jpg

With just a little less than 6 kilometers to go, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit has already caught up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, with the next chasing group being 2 minutes behind!

35" ahead is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall, who's still riding a few meters ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera. But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is looking really good to catch both of them soon!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_36.jpg

Here's the aforementioned chasing group, consisting of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen. The four stronger climbers are ahead, as expected - but this quintet still has slightly more than 6 minutes on the peloton as well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_37.jpg

Just under the 5km banner, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is about to make the catch! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera has meanwhile reeled in pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall once again, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych couldn't keep pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit's wheel. The Russian has to hope that the pace slows down up front once pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit has definitely caught up!

But even if they do, the chasers very likely won't make it back again, still trailing by more than 2'30".

And the pack? 8'39". Yeah, they're slightly faster than the leaders now. But they won't take the stage win - except if someone can fly up this mountain.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_38.jpg

They do come a little bit closer, but as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez - still him - leads them under the 5km arc, the gap is still 7'30". They'd need to ride 90" faster per kilometer to catch the leaders - which seems to be rather unlikely, to be honest!

By the way, some riders have been dropped from the pack, but obviously no big climbers yet.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_39.jpg

While the stage win already seemed to be out of reach anyway, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen now has to bid goodbye to a potential Top 5 result as well. Let's see if he can at least make it ahead of the pack - which trails these riders by a little less than 4 minutes now. The gap to the front has however gone up to more than 3 minutes.

Stage 2 / 7: Mountainous, 165km

Innsbruck - KitzbĂĽheler Horn

Part 2 / 2



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_40.jpg

If they had time, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall could enjoy the view down on Kitzbühel - but obviously they've got other things in mind! 3 kilometers to go - and one of them will very likely add a win on a tough mountain stage to his palmarès!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_41.jpg

Aaah, we finally get some action back in the pack! 3.5km to go for them - 2 kilometers for the leaders - as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya makes the first move!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz is the order in the queue behind, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Faiers, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig not responding immediately, but sitting in the first positions of the pack.

Things do look somewhat worse for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Potocki, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Aular and especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Gebremedhin, though, as they're caught behind in a major split!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_42.jpg

Up front, nobody seems to have enough energy left to attack, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall even looks pretty tired by now! We said it before, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera are the strongest climbers - but can the Austrian capitalize on the home soil advantage?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_43.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya has faded, and now it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya taking over and trying to sprint away! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin first has to close that small gap that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya is leaving now!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz still are the first chasers, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl senses the danger of gaps opening and tries to move up, having already passed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_44.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya really seems to be the strongest here, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya isn't able to follow! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin stays cool and doesn't respond immediately, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour has to ride around pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen, who was just caught.

And we even seem to have a small gap opening behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer couldn't quite keep up! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens are with the Dane, and these four have a small advantage on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz as well!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min are next, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz has now caught up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Faiers however isn't looking good at all, having dropped behind several helpers of other teams!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_45.jpg

Meanwhile, it's game over for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin as well, who had to let go of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak! These three are 1'41" behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, and almost 3 minutes behind the leaders - and just 2'10" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya now! Can they hold on and finish ahead of the now fast-moving pack?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_46.jpg

Last kilometer for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera! Leading by a minute ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych - and a few minutes more on the pack - we can safely say that the stage winner will come from this trio - but who has got most left?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_47.jpg

Apparently, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya somewhat overestimated his strength, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya finally closes the gap! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin is still in 3rd position, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran.

The other riders in this first group are pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min, breakaway rider pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Hänninen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Pomoshnikov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Squire.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_48.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera has now drawn level with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, but none of these riders is sprinting yet. 800 meters still to go - a long way on roads with a 10% gradient! Fortunately for them, the final meters will be slightly flatter.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_49.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya really seems to have a great engine today, as he continues to diesel up this steep mountain! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin is about to be caught, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya is losing one position after the other! Hopefully he doesn't crack completely!

Further behind, we see that there's a gap opening behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler being unable to follow!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_50.jpg

500 meters to the line, and the leaders are now launching their sprints! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit is still in the pole position, but will have the longest way around this final corner! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall is moving up, having already overtaken pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera - can he really claim a home win here on KitzbĂĽheler Horn?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_51.jpg

But let's first switch back, as things are really falling apart now! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler definitely had to let go of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti, who is trying to catch up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min again!

More importantly, however, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya's steady but high pace has allowed him to break free along with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz are the first chasers, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran - whose team did a huge amount of work today - doesn't seem to be able to respond! Nor do pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer or any of the others - or are they just bluffing?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_52.jpg

300 meters to go for the race leaders - and it's still pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit up front! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall are neck-and-neck, but the German currently has the edge - can he pull it through? Or can local hero pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall strike back?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_53.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens is now trying to capitalize on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya's great work, having taken the lead! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is very attentive, well knowing whom he has to pay attention to!

Meanwhile, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl have managed to close the gap, pulling the rest of the group with them.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min is dropping off at the back, and is about to be caught by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti now. But let's get an overview of who's still in this group:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellenspcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkinpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latourpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uranpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthypcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneopcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastmanpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruyapcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abalpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer


Especially the last three don't look good at all - while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya probably overpowered earlier on, it's rather a surprise to see pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer struggling! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal already had a bad day yesterday, let's hope he at least can somehow hold on today!

But this as well means that we're already missing quite some riders who did well yesterday:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Gebremedhin (12th)
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti (13th)
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig (14th)
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Pomoshnikov (16th)
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min (19th)

None of the riders who finished outside the Top 20 are up front today, though, so those named here might not even lose that many positions.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_54.jpg

We're close to the finish line - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit really seems to take it! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall is out of contention - still having shown a great race, that will be rewarded with a stage podium - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Herrera hasn't thrown in the towel yet and might capitalize on the shorter path to the line!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_55.jpg

But the Salvadorian can't close the gap, and so it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit who celebrates an amazing win up here on KitzbĂĽheler Horn! He was the strongest "climber" of the group - and he played it very well! Congratulations!

Second place goes to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Erick Herrera, who - unlike the stage winner - decided to follow pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Felix Gall's early move - maybe it was the energy spent to keep up with the Austrian that finally was missing in the end.

And for said pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Felix Gall, it's of course heartbreaking to be so close to a win on home soil - but a stage podium on this tough stage is really more than what he could ever have dreamed about! And he surely has learned a lot about strategy today.

By the way, these two riders lose 13" and 37" on the stage winner.

But who's next? Can the chasers keep the peloton at bay? Or will the strongest climber take the next spots?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_56.jpg

Well, it might be close! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens shows a great performance today, as only pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is able to follow him! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl tries to close the gap that has just opened, but he's having a really hard time doing so!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin are with the Austrian - while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal have just been dropped and are about to be caught by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_57.jpg

Just as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin are passing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy is launching his turbo engine and sprinting away from pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl!

These two have themselves opened a small gap to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, while former breakaway rider pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin has finally been dropped from this group, too.

Up front, it however looks as if pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi might fend off the top climbers and take 5th and 6th on the stage!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_58.jpg

After he was dropped by stage winner pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Artem Nych rode a very lonely race on this final climb, in the end securing 4th place of the stage. Surely a good result for the Russian, even though he might be disappointed about having missed out on a podium.

He loses 2'09".


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_59.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Peak and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Kipkemboi really seem to be on their way to 5th and 6th, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin are quickly closing in!

And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy is showing a stunning last kilometer as well, having simply left behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz - who are both showing a great race, too, nota bene!

Let's see if pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless can actually hang on to a Top 10 - he'd have to keep pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl behind him to do so, though...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_60.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Barnabas Peak and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Salim Kipkemboi do indeed manage to finish ahead of the big guns pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, who therefore are fighting for 7th and 8th only! The clock stops at 2'34" for them.

Further behind, we can see that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy is finally fading a bit - can pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl even close that gap? The Austrian however first has to pass pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Lawless. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz is still doing well, too, staying clear of many stronger climbers!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_61.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Tim Wellens outsprints pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin for 8th - however, it's questionable if the latter had taken it just as easy as well if the stage win had been at stake!

The race leader followed his strongest competitor today, and hence was always in control - no time lost, some time gained on most of the other contenders, and still the time trial as a joker - things are going well for the Moldovan!

Both lose 2'50" on the stage - with winner pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit trailing by more than 9 minutes pre-stage, they can easily afford this loss.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_62.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Hugh Carthy was the 3rd strongest rider from the peloton today, gaining some time on almost everyone. He finishes 3'24" behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, in 9th place.

Local hero pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Stefan Denifl then makes it two Austrians in the Top 10 - which didn't sound that improbable pre-stage, but we'd rather expect pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler to be the second one, and surely not pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall...

He loses 10" on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, and 44" on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens - especially the former seems to be gone, having the TT in his favor, too. But with the time gained today on many stronger time trialists, the Austrian might really have a chance for a GC podium in his home tour!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Dominik Nerz then outsprints pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Christopher Lawless on the final meters. Both lose 3'41" - and the German will surely move up in the overall standings after yesterday's small time loss, let's see by how much!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_63.jpg

Almost his whole team had to work hard today - and all pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran gets out of this stage is a 14th place (yeah, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman is ranked ahead of him, don't ask me why), losing 4'09" on the winner and 1'19" on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin. After he already lost a lot of time yesterday, it's going to be really hard to repeat last year's great result, where he came 2nd overall.

Inside this same group, we have, taking 15th to 20th, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin and - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti! Yes, the Spaniard did a great job on the final kilometers to catch up with this group, hence preserving his great GC position, too!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_64.jpg

The feelings will be pretty different for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya and especially yesterday's 3rd pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer! They concede almost two minutes to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, or in other terms 4'38" to today's winner!

Nonetheless, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya finishing ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min once again, he easily defends his white (actually pink) jersey and even extends his lead.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_65.jpg

Here we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min, taking 24th place and losing exactly 30" on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Gallego Martin is next, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler - who was the stronger clibmer of his team today, but if you only get 26th place, that doesn't mean a lot...

In fact, it was a very bad day for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig - who did the worst job of yesterday's Top 15 today, taking 38th place with a 6'14" deficit. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez only finished half a minute further ahead, though, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Faiers and yesterday's surprise pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Gebremedhin were in the same group as the Czech.

We'll take a look at the updated GC later on - but now let's first cheer on today's stage winner!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_66.jpg

Ladies and gentlemen, please applaud pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit! Together with his 8 breakaway companions, the German built up an advantage on the peloton that was large enough to stay clear until the line - and then he simply was the strongest and moreover played it really well! Being the weakest climber of his team didn't keep him from winning on top of KitzbĂĽheler Horn - congratulations!

Today's runner-up is Salvadorian champion pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Erick Herrera. He showed a great performance as well, but finally didn't have enough energy left to give the German a fight until the very end. Still, well done!

And in 3rd place, we have local talent pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Felix Gall! He clearly was the most active rider on the final climb - which on one hand allowed him to get clear of most others, but on the other hand may have cost a bit too much energy to really fight for the stage win. Maybe he'll get that one in the future?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_67.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin is still our race leader, as he conceded time to no other rider except for some escapees. He was the boss on the final climb, simply following all the important moves - well done!

He currently has a 20" lead ahed of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Tim Wellens, who may have been the strongest rider today - but it just wasn't enough to get rid of the yellow jersey. Still, today's performance surely allows him to fight for a GC podium, if he can hang on on the remaining non-flat stages!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Stefan Denifl drops from 2nd to 3rd, as he couldn't quite keep up with the aforementioned duo. He's now trailing by 52" - meaning he'd need something extraordinary to overtake the Moldovan, given the latter's great time trialing skills. On the other hand, he's got a 41" advantage to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz in 4th place, and 47" to the top time trialists pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo. Is this enough to defend that podium spot? Or can he gain a few more seconds on the hilltop finishes? We'll see - in each case, it remains a wide open race for the podium spots - probably once more behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, though!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_68.jpg

And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin still leads the points standings as well - however, it's now a tied lead together with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit, as both total 33 points!

And we have a tie as well for 3rd place, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Stefan Denifl and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Erick Herrera trailing the leaders by 7 points.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_69.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit then steps onto the podium for the second time, as he's our new KoM leader! The 7 points he gained on the two minor hills today are exactly the gap he now has on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin, who has 24 points. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Tim Wellens follows in 3rd place, totalling 19 points so far.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_70.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Joseph Areruya didn't play his cards very well today. After he got a small gap, he finally cracked and went on to lose a lot of time and GC spots - but as he's still U25, this probably is part of the learning process.

Nonetheless, he again had the highest finish of the "serious" contenders for this jersey (6 breakaway riders finished ahead of him, though), therefore extending his lead. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Kyeng Ho Min now trails by 57", while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Orluis Aular in 3rd place is already more than 5 minutes behind. It's indeed the expected duel on top!

But it's an even closer fight for 3rd, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schleck and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Dulanjana only trail pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Aular by a single second...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S2/mg20_austria_s02_71.jpg

And it was truly a great day for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Kraftwerk Man Machine, as they move up to the top of the team standings! The great win by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit surely was the decisive factor, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz' strong showing was important as well.

The Germans now lead 3'12" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png DK - SVA Zalgiris, who are the only team having two riders in the Top 15 of the GC - great performance!

In 3rd place, we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png MOL, whose top riders are 7th and 18th - which of course isn't bad at all, either!


And with these pictures, we end today's live broadcast from the Int. Ă–sterreich Rundfahrt 2020. We saw a surprising breakaway win on top of KitzbĂĽheler Horn, we had a GC leader who was seriously challenged today - but who finally was as unbeatable as almost ever. Join us again tomorrow, for the first of two sprinter stages - stay tuned!
