Bora-Hansgrohe, one of two WorldTour teams together with Israel Start-Up Nation to start the Sibiu Tour, enjoyed more success on stage 2 but it came along with an injury to one of the team's key riders, Rüdiger Selig. The German, one of Pascal Ackermann's main lead-out men, crashed into a car and injured his arm and is uncertain to start on Sunday's split stages.

Ackermann still managed to win a reduced bunch sprint on stage 2 in Sibiu, while teammate Patrick Konrad kept the leader's jersey and Gregor Mühlberger continued in the lead of the mountains classification.
