Gerrit Glomser of the Volksbank team has been getting a late invitation to the Worlds, but his form is certainly good. Sunday he won the GP Vorarlberg, the last race in the Austrian Tchibo-Cup. Glomser, who also won a stage in the Tour of Austria, finished the 175-kilometre race solo and 1'23" ahead of his closest rivals, Nico Keinath and Michael Franzl of Germany. Markus Eibegger got 30th, but had already secured the overall win of the nine-race series.

"A win in Vorarlberg in front of the home crowd is of course very important for us," a happy Glomser declared after the race, according to radsport-aktiv.de. "More is not possible. We dominated the race and were very active. And you can't motivate yourself better for the Worlds than with a win. My form is good, I am prepared 100%."
