Bjorn Brems (G-Skin Deforche Team) was all smiles in Schladming as he won stage three of the Alpentour Trophy. The Belgian won by one second with overall leader Uwe Hochenwarter (Muskelkater Genesis Team) in second place and Matthias Leisling (Muskelkater Genesis Team) in third. Brems now lies 19 seconds behind Hochenwarter in the overall.

Brems dominated the 70 kilometre and 2,300m elevation stage and scaled onto the top of the podium after getting second and third places in the first two stages.

“I’m very satisfied with today’s result. With the sun out everything always seems to be so much easier for me”, said the Belgian.

Heading into tomorrow’s final stage Hochenwarter was optimistic. “It goes without saying that there won’t be any gifts granted. We have everything covered towards the back and I’m ahead. If Bjorn wants to change that, he’ll have to work hard for it.”

The riders faced challenging singletrack at the base of the Dachstein mountain ranges as well as extremely steep ascents and difficult downhill sections via Ramsau up to the Türlwandhütte and the Bachlalm. The mountain ranges were covered in fresh snow and the beautiful scenery was so impressive that even the elite riders looked up from the trails to enjoy the views.

Natalia Krompets (Team Ukraine) accomplished a hat-trick of wins in the elite women's category. The Ukrainian took the third stage victory, closely pursued by teammate Yana Belomyna.
