Olympic champion Viviani wins in Vienna, Vanmarcke in yellow
The flat 1st stage of the 69th Austria Tour from Graz to Vienna (196km) showed that not only mountains can make decisions, but also the wind. After a fall in the main field, which occurred in strong cross winds, many overall favorites lost a lot of time. Olympic champion Elia Viviani secured the stage win in the sprint of the top 30 group. Belgian runner-up Sep Vanmarcke captured the yellow leadership jersey and Stephan Rabitsch slipped into the mountain jersey!
