Ladies and gentlemen, hello once again to beautiful Austria! We're on half-time-day, and the half-way point of today's stage - therefore really the middle of the race - will be on the highest point of this whole Tour of Austria!

However, the riders will have a rather easy start, with the first about 30km slightly descending. The start line is in Matrei in East Tyrol, yet another market village, of about 4,500 inhabitants. Tourism - throughout the whole year - and agriculture are the main economic sectors, with a plethora of churches and chapels all over the region being the main sights.

Before tackling the 3rd - and final - HC climb of the race, we'll have a 2nd category warm-up climb to Iselsberg, with the KoM sprint after 39.1 kilometers. After a short descent, an ascending false flat will lead the riders up to the foot of today's main obstacle - thereby taking the first intermediate sprint in Döllach, after 55.3km.

Once arrived in Heiligenblut, the riders will take the Grossglockner High Alpine Road for the next about 50 kilometers. Don't be afraid, the road won't lead the riders up to Austria's highest mountain (3,798m), but "only" over two Passes. The Hochtor Pass is the first one, as we're coming from the South - and as we reach just over 2,500m above sea level, this one definitely deserves the HC category! 79.8km will be covered by then - OK, it's slightly more than half of the stage, but still...

Only 6km later, we'll reach Fuscher Törl, the second pass, which is "only" 2,428m above sea level. I don't really get why this is a category 2 climb, being that short, but it's probably because of the elevation...

By then, all the major difficulties of this Ă–sterreich-Rundfahrt will be done, and the riders can enjoy the downhill to Fusch. For most of what's resting of the stage, the riders will follow the Salzach - down the valley, of course. And they will pick up some more intermediate sprint points en route, as they reach Taxenbach, after 123.7km.

But the stage won't be flat until the very end: once we arrive in St. Johann im Pongau, the riders will have to tackle the final ascent up to Alpendorf, St. Johann's ski resort. It's a short climb, but whoever's legs are tired after the big mountain mid-stage will have to watch out for not losing time here! One thing is sure: they will well deserve their stay in one of the four- or five-star hotels in Alpendorf, and probably take a close look at the spas tonight!

However, first they have to deliver. Given the character of the stage, it's hard to come up with a list of favorites; it will depend on how the long climb is ridden. The bookies think that the strong climbers will take it, though, as they list pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens on top, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti. Time will tell if they're right...

The reporter has got great memories of this same stage last year, as Fausto Masnada won in Alpendorf from a breakaway group. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin was the strongest from the pack, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa - let's see what happens today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_01.jpg

This picture says it all about today's main theme: mountains! Let's see if everyone makes the time limit - if they can stay inside the pack until the start of the big climb, they should be OK.

The weather is perfect - blue skies and no wind - now it's up to the riders to make it their perfect race, too!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_02.jpg

It takes not even two kilometers until we have the first attacks! But while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Flaksis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Kortsidakis probably just want to gain some advantage ahead of today's main obstacle, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson is surely targetting the stage win!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_03.jpg

This could be the case as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard's only realistic goal could be to get rid of the red lantern. He needs to gain about 4 minutes on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Ciolek to do so.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_04.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Barbero and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Barthe are next, trying to get their respective teams a numerical advantage in the breakaway - equalling pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Minions' headcount.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_05.jpg

We then have an pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Adastra duo on the attack, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Stoenchev and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Carretero Millan are trying to further strengthen their teams' presence up front.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_06.jpg

But it still ain't over yet! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez and the Cuban and Mauritian champions pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court try to break free as well.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_07.jpg

Things are finally calming down, and it's mainly the sprinters taking over in the pack. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Vaquera leads them ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Goldstein, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Golovash, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Pokälä, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Maksimov, KoM leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Juodvalkis. The German is taking a lot of risk by not joining the breakaway today - with 40 KoM points at stake, he'll need some luck to defend that jersey!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_08.jpg

After about 25 kilometers - hence already towards the end of the descending false flat - the attackers have finally merged into one big group - including 20 riders. Let's take a look at them:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson are the strongest climbers, both being the leaders of their respective teams (on paper). However, the latter is much stronger on the hills and has way better acceleration, which might come in handy on the final ascent.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez are one level below on the long climbs, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez being the strongest on the hills. However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo is an even better puncheur, although slightly weaker in the high mountains.

We then have a bunch of U25 riders, consisting of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Carretero Millan. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca is an equally strong climber, but he's not U25 anymore - instead, he's a way better puncheur.

Finally, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Barthe and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche have mountain stats of more than 70 as well, with the former moreover being a good puncheur with a strong kick.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Barbero whill have to hope for the group to take it easy on the long climb - then they might have their chances on the final uphill, both having some good punch. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Stoenchev and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Kortsidakis don't like the uphills that much, and while the former can at least support his teammate up front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Berg Cycles may just have sent the wrong man in the group.

And last but not least, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Flaksis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard will suffer anyway - be it up front or back in the pack. Chances are really high they won't be able to keep up with this group once the climbing really starts.

Too many names? Let's try to get an overview:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Rosonpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedreropcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Moscapcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Barbero

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoornpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Carretero Millan
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Kortsidakis
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard


The peloton currently trails by 3'34". pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez currently is the best positioned rider in the GC, trailing by 7'56" - no big danger for the leaders right now. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Barthe is 9th in the U25 standings, but almost 12 minutes off the lead.

In terms of KoM points, only pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca (10) and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson (6) already are on the scoresheet - and should therefore have decent chances of taking over the jersey tonight!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_09.jpg

In an instant, it will be time for the warm-up climb to Iselsberg. Slightly more than 7 kilometers long, and a bit more than 7% of average slope - a good one to get a feeling for what's yet to come.

Let's see if the group already breaks up here!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_10.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Barthe is leading the escapees as they reach the first slopes of that hill. 10 points are on offer on top, so nobody can take over the jersey here yet.

The peloton starts the climb 5'16" later, meaning that the virtual red lantern has meanwhile switched to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Ciolek.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_11.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche launches a pretty long-range attack, with still 2km of climbing to go - and while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Minions managed to place all their three riders up front, all other teams who had multiple riders in the group are left with just one - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_12.jpg

And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche insists further, breaking the group up even more! Well, it probably wasn't a good idea to stay behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Flaksis, as the gap opened right ahead of him, seeing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court break free!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_13.jpg

Without much surprise, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche couldn't pull it through, and doesn't even score on top. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez easily takes maximum points, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez outsprinting a rather inattentive pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 10 (10)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov - 8 (8)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Martinez - 6 (6)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim - 4 (4)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez - 2 (2)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court trail by 22", while all the others have regrouped and cross the line 48" down - they would catch up again on the ascending false flat following the downhill.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_14.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi leads the pack over the line half an eternity later - more precisely 8'28" behind the leaders, meaning that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez has meanwhile taken over the virtual race lead!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_15.jpg

But as soon as the roads are flatter again, the pack starts seriously chasing - why it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Hodeg doing so however remains an open question, having three teammates up front! A few instants before, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Garcia Cortina was pulling the pack - having himself two teammates in the breakaway as well... Maybe pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez' advantage was a bit too much for them, so they want to protect pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran's and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour's GC places?

In each case, the gap has rapidly dropped to 7 minutes!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_16.jpg

The points at the first intermediate sprint in Döllach are undisputed; pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche takes the maximum.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche - 6 (6)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Kortsidakis - 4 (4)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Barbero - 2 (2)

The peloton, led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Zabel at this point, has further reduced its deficit to 5'45"!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_17.jpg

Soon after the sprint, the leaders will tackle the main obstacle of the whole race - up to the Hochtor tunnel on the Grossglockner Alpine Road. The 7.7% average gradients are slightly misleading, as there's a 1km downhill about half-way up the climb, with the toughest slopes following in the second half. Let's see if this one makes some riders crack - both up front and back in the pack!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_18.jpg

Here we go, the climb is on! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim leads the group, while the leaders of the teams with multiple riders are at the back - they might want to move up before the group breaks apart!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_19.jpg

In the previous image, we saw that the three pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Minions were not working, either - this is because their teammates are still leading the pack! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Bjerg is in first position as they reach the first slopes, 5'15" later. However, as long as it's just the Dane setting the pace, nobody will really be afraid of a big split...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_20.jpg

Actually, the first one to be dropped is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Hodeg, who did a lot of work before. Let's hope their strategy will not just break their own riders, but actually bring some fruit...

And by the way, the gap is again growing, given that it's still "just" pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Bjerg leading the pack. At least, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Bostner takes over little later - without going full gas, though.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_21.jpg

Meanwhile, the first riders are shed from the breakaway, and as expected, it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Flaksis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard who have to let go. Let's see if the Dane finally retains the red lantern...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_22.jpg

That might not be the case, as his closest rival pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Ciolek is dropped as well, along with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schomber, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Goldstein, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Verona, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Havik, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Maksimov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Robert. But they're almost half-way up the climb already, so with 80km to go, the time limit shouldn't be a factor today.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_23.jpg

Half of the climb is done by the breakaway, as they're heading into the short intermediate descent. They can see the 5km banner up there - well knowing that they'll have to do again all that elevation gain they're losing now...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_24.jpg

Just before the pack reaches this point, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Flaksis is reeled in, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard will share the same fate soon. The gap has slightly decreased again and now seems to be rather stable at around 5 minutes. But neither group is going full gas right now.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_25.jpg

With slightly more than 2km of climbing to go, there's a split in the front group! And apparently, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita haven't been attentive, as they've been dropped together with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson is trying to close the gap again - let's see if that works out!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_26.jpg

But up front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez has now launched the sprint for the points - 20 await the first on top! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez, the winner of the first KoM sprint of the day, is on his wheel - he could come as close as 1 point to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit by winning this one as well! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo are the only ones able to keep up, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov leading the chase behind.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_27.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez was clearly the strongest, taking full points on the Hochtor Pass. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez will still be happy with 2nd place, though! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo has overtaken pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim to take 3rd place.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_28.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov has left behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche, who in turn is caught by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson, who have made their way back after having been caught off-guard! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero pick up the final points.

So let's get an overview of the full points distribution:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez - 20 (22)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 14 (24)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo - 12 (12)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim - 10 (14)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov - 8 (16)
6. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche - 6 (6)
7. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 5 (11)
8. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca - 4 (14)
9. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita - 3 (3)
10. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn - 2 (2)
11. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero - 1 (1)

Which means that both pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez can still take the KoM jersey - if they arrive 1st and 2nd in this order on the next climb, they would even share the lead!

As the former breakaway group is scattered all over the place now, let's try to get an overview by taking a look at the current timings:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomezpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez

+ 6'33"
Peloton (107 riders)


So the acceleration towards the top has clearly made the gap jump up again - and with only a short counterslope (still rewarded with category 2 KoM points), a downhill and a long descending false flat left - for a total of 70 kilometers - that advantage may well be enough!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_29.jpg

Let's take a look at the pack that is falling apart. Individual riders, smaller or larger groups are scattered all over the place. The strongest climber to be dropped so far is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov (43rd GC), but pretty much all others are far weaker than him on the uphills.

Matrei in Osttirol - St. Johann / Alpendorf

Part 2 / 2



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_30.jpg

It's really not a long way up to the Fuscher Törl Pass, but let's still take a look at the profile. It will probably basically be a long sprint for the two leaders - and whoever arrives on top first will probably get the KoM jersey!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_31.jpg

And here they already are! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez is again leading, as he already did on the previous KoM sprint. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez couldn't hold his wheel then - has he recovered enough on the short downhill to outsprint the Colombian?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_32.jpg

Not only was pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez stronger than pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, the latter was even overtaken by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo who was the fastest man on this climb! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim finishes close behind as well, meaning that we'll have a leading group of four riders on the downhill.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov would pick up the final points 48" later, which leads to the following result:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 10 (34)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo - 8 (20)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez - 6 (28)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim - 4 (18)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov - 2 (18)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez therefore takes over the KoM jersey from pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, leading the standings by 3 points now. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez moves up to 3rd place.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_33.jpg

Here we get a great overview of the remaining breakaway riders, with the duo pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca about to cross the line, and the last group just starting the climb. Let's take a look at the timings:

Peloton (73 riders)


Let's see if some of these riders and groups will regroup on the long downhill - and if the pack finally ups the pace a little!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_34.jpg

It doesn't look too fast back here. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Domagalski is setting a decent pace, but surely still not going full gas. Maybe the strategy is to keep as many helpers around as possible - with a headcount of above 70, that should be the case. Let's see what they can do on the final 65 kilometers now - the first thing they'll do is to reel in that group of 5 right ahead!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_35.jpg

The frontrunners have clearly slowed down after the descent, allowing for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov to catch up quite quickly. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca aren't far behind anymore, either.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche are now riding together as well, chasing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court has left behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Kortsidakis. The peloton is still two minutes behind the Greek.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_36.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Le Court finally decided to wait for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Kortsidakis - which might have been the wrong strategy, as both are soon caught by the now raging pack, led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Velasco.

Up front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita all have made the catch, which leaves just pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche in between the leaders and the peloton. They're trailing by one minute, with the pack 4'28" behind the front of the race - 30 kilometers left!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_37.jpg

The intermediate sprint in Taxenbach isn't contested, either, and so pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson just happens to take maximum points:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 6 (12)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca - 4 (14)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim - 2 (2)


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_38.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche are just a few meters down by this point, and it looks as if they could come back again - making it three pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Repsol - Netflix riders up front!

The pack is still 3'26" behind - with just 25km remaining, that gap will be really hard to close now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_39.jpg

Under the 20km banner, the trio has indeed made the catch - meaning we now have 11 riders up front. With still 3'13" of advantage, it's pretty likely that the stage winner will come from this group, so let's get an overview again:

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Rosonpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Moscapcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Repsol - Netflix now really have a great chance of winning this one - if they play their numbers well enough!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_40.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson then launches the first attack on the descending false flat, with still 13.5km to go! It remains to be seen if sending the (on paper) strongest rider up front really pays off...

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita is trying to respond, but doesn't seem to be able to hold the Spaniard's wheel!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_41.jpg

Under the 10km arc, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson still has a 16" advantage - however, the chasers seem to be in control, letting the attacker waste his remaining energy. But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero are surely ready to go next if their teammate should be caught...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_42.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Dulanjana leads the pack at the same point - but they're still 2'52" down, meaning they will very likely not be competing for the stage win, just like last year!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_43.jpg

5 kilometers to the line - and it's still a 16" gap between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson and the 10 chasers! The decisive part is yet to come, though, with the final 2 kilometers leading uphill!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_44.jpg

And here's the profile of the final (uncategorized) ascent - 2 kilometers, and 7% steep on average - a great chance for the stronger puncheurs in the group! Or just for whom has most left in the tank, after a pretty tough stage...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_45.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson's advantage hasn't changed on the last 3 kilometers, either, so he still takes that 16" advantage into the decisive uphill!

The peloton still trails by more than 2'30", so that's really no danger anymore!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_46.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov has taken the lead in the chasing group - and he catches pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson just under the red kite! Now pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero need to move up fast if they want to save the day for the team!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez currently is in 2nd position, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche - while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson can probably be ruled out after his effort!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_47.jpg

800m to go, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov still leads ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn has dropped back behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim, alongside pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca, who has left behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche are at the back of the group.

The peloton - although quite well visible already - still trails by 2'36", so the stage win is definitely out of reach for them.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_48.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche doesn't seem to have much left, as a small gap opens ahead of him. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita follows a tired pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson's wheel, who in turn is right behind teammate pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo are neck-and-neck now, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn slightly ahead. Up front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez are closing in on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov, as is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca some inches further behind!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_49.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin took the first spot from the pack last year, and he wants to do the same this time! He's the first to launch his long sprint, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa try to follow, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya.

To their right, we see pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Denz, while the "big guns" are slightly further down the road.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_50.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov still holds onto his lead with just 300m to the line! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim is fading, as is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez to a lesser extent - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca is currently moving fastest! He had such a bad position under the red kite - can he still win here?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn then tries to catch pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca's wheel, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero seems to finally be up to his top-speed and now tries to follow the Dutchman!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez are rather falling behind - but with a strong kick, either could still challenge for the stage podium!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson likely are out of contention, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche has been definitely dropped.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_51.jpg

200m to go! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov is still ahead, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca has now clearly moved into 2nd position, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez is losing ground! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo are still challenging for a podium spot, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez don't seem to have enough left for a late push.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Higuita and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson are now definitely distanced, while the peloton reaches the final kilometer as well.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_52.jpg

Just 100m left, and now it's neck-and-neck between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Mosca - with both doing an amazing job, one pulling the whole way long, and the other moving up a lot of spots on these final 1,000 meters!

Behind, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez really needs to fight hard for the final podium spot, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn has already moved ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Rhim! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Rodriguez Galindo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Pedrero seem to be fighting for 6th only.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_53.jpg

It's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Borislav Ivanov! The Bulgarian counters pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Jacopo Mosca's attack, throwing his bike over the line a few inches ahead of the Italian!

But who will claim the final podium spot? pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Eenkhoorn has got a great speed and is now neck-and-neck with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez - can the latter counter just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov did?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_54.jpg

No, he can't, and so it's youngster pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Pascal Eenkhoorn who gets 3rd place today! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Jarlinson Pantano Gomez has to settle for 4th, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Brendan Rhim, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Antonio Pedrero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Michael Rodriguez Galindo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Ruben Fernandez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Sergio Higuita.

Now we're waiting for the final two escapees - or will the pack actually arrive first?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_55.jpg

At least, they're now moving really fast, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin still in the lead. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran follow, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit are still in the first positions as well.

On the other hand, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens is only around 10th position - while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is even further back! They could be at risk of losing some valuable seconds today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_56.jpg

Meanwhile, a disappointed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Jaime Roson crosses the finish line 43" after the winner, getting the final Top 10 spot of the day. His team took 2nd, 6th and 10th - surely no bad result, but given their numerical advantage, they should definitely have taken the stage win!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png James Fouche arrives ahead of the pack as well, finishing 1'17" behind the stage winner.

With 500m to the line, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin is still going strong! And while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran have lost some ground, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa are looking really good. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl is pulling pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, trying to move up as far as possible while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is that far back!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_58.jpg

But it's actually not just pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo is riding right alongside him, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman is only a few meters ahead, too. They will have to hope the group remains more or less intact and hence would get the same time!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin is still leading the peloton on the final meters (with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Fouche finishing right now), but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour are trying to pass him now.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_59.jpg

Finally, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour was the strongest, taking 12th place. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin "only" takes 2nd place of the bunch this year - but given that it's not even a Top 10 anyway, that probably won't hurt so much.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Denz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Squire and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa complete today's Top 20 - with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran dropping all the way down to 25th, right ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin! All GC favorites get the same time, though, losing 1'52" on the winner.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_60.jpg

And that winner is... pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Borislav Ivanov! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Minions had three riders in the breakaway, and definitely had the better strategy than pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Repsol - Netflix, who have to be content with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Jacopo Mosca's second place. Well done!

That holds as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Pascal Eenkhoorn, who had a great finish claiming 3rd place, already showing his great talent now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_61.jpg

GC-wise, we finally had no notable changes, as could somewhat be expected given today's profile. Hence, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin still leads 20" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Tim Wellens and 52" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Stefan Denifl.

If they want to attack the leader, they'll have to do so tomorrow, as the Moldovan should be clearly stronger in the closing time trial. But beware, as the winner of stage 5 last year was... You guessed it.

By the way, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard succeeded in getting rid of the red lantern - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Ciolek now has it by almost 10 minutes...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_62.jpg

And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin keeps the points jersey, too, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit still sits in 2nd place. Both of them scored no points today, so they still have a total of 38 and 33 respectively.

In 3rd place, with 32 points, we now have today's runner-up pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Jacopo Mosca. With three stages left, anything is possible - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin probably being among the top favorites on two of them is quite a good situation for him.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_63.jpg

It's a good situation as well for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Ruben Fernandez, who was the strongest in the KoM sprints today, thereby claiming the lead in the overall standings! He now has a total of 34 points, leading 3 points ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit and 6 points ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Jarlinson Pantano Gomez.

Tomorrow is the final day with KoM points at stake - let's see if he can defend it!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_64.jpg

Just like in the GC, there were not many changes in the U25 standings, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Joseph Areruya still leading pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Kyeng Ho Min by 57" and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Orluis Aular by 5'35".

However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Dulanjana, who trailed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Aular by a single second pre-stage, did a lot of work and finally lost some ground, leaving pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schleck as the only serious competitor for the final podium spot.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S4/mg20_austria_s04_65.jpg

No changes as well in the team standings; even though pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Repsol - Netflix were clearly the best team today, they're so far back that it doesn't really matter.

Hence, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Kraftwerk Man Machine still lead 3'12" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png DK - SVA Zalgiris, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png MOL trailing by 4'15".


And so ends the final mountain stage of the Ă–sterreich-Rundfahrt. Tomorrow's hilly stage is the final realistic opportunity for the uphill specialists to gain some positions ahead of the closing time trial - let's find out who plans to do a gutsy move! See you then!
