Photo Gallery of the Recent Tour of Austria - Third Stage the Finish on Kitzbuheler Horn & Tour of Austria Report Index.

The 59th edition of the Austrian tour put the spotlight on a new generation of riders like the 20-year-old Ciolek, 21-year-old stage winner Gianni Meersman, and obviously also young Rohregger aged 23, in the spotlight with "veterans" like Fabio Baldato (39 and still rocking in the sprints) and Glomser, as much as José Rujano once more disappointed all those hungry to see him back to ancient form; the days of 2004 and 2005 are gone for the (former?) mountain goat from the Venezuelan Andes. The performance of Oscar Sevilla, sixth place finisher on the GC, wasn't as good as expected either.

Stage 3: Finish Kitzbuheler Horn
"It's like a Hollywood movie, it's a dream come true. I have been working hard for this day all year long, and today I've won on my favourite mountain, in my homeland". And who can blame Thomas Rohregger for talking like this in after-stage interviews? Nobody, if we consider that Tyrol's own Rohregger got a sensational solo victory on Tyrol's own top mountain, the Kitzbüheler Horn, in Tuesday's stage three - which started at Salzburg and covered 180 kilometres - and at the same time captured the yellow jersey. The Elk House Simplon team rider came across the line eighteen seconds clear of teammate/compatriot/2006-stage-winner Christian Pfannberger, with the Slovenian prospect Jure Golcer (Tenax) snatching third at 47 sec.
