Glomser questionable for Hervis Tour

Two-time Tour of Austria champion Gerrit Glomser may not have a chance to win his homeland tour for the third time this year. A summer flu has struck him and he has a high fever. "This morning I had a fever of just under 38 degrees. I feel terrible. There couldn't be a worse situation just one day before the tour - it's not the best conditions. Right now my start doesn't seem likely," he said.

According to Team Volksbank team manager Thomas Kofler, "this crazy situation is typical for this season. We have nothing but bad luck. If Gerrit can't start, then all of our planning is for nothing. But I won't give up hope."

The Hervis Tour, as it is now called, starts Monday with a 146 km stage starting and ending in Gars am Kamp, with two Cat. 3 climbs.
