Elk Haus in Trentino

Team Elk Haus Simplon had a big day in the second stage of the Giro del Trentino Wednesday, placing two riders in the top five. The Austrian Professional Continental team also saw Thomas Rohregger move up to fourth place overall.

Christian Pfannberger finished third on the day, with Rohregger close behind him in fifth. Rohregger lost the mountain ranking lead which he had won the previous day, "but today I concentrated totally on the GC," he said.

"Our team colleagues worked for us perfectly and very professionally brought us in position before the last climb," Pfannberger said. The two went up the last climb together and were able to drop several other riders. "Then we saw Cunego before us and I went for it," Pfannberger said.
