Bayern Rundfahrt - Race Overview

Daryl Impey won the third stage of Bayern Rundfahrt from a late race solo attack. A top ten finish in the stage four time trial put him solidly inside the top ten overall. Following five days of racing, Impey ended the week seventh overall.

Christian Meier won the mountains classification at Bayern Rundfahrt. The Canadian moved into the polka dot jersey following stage two and put up a strong defence to keep it until the end of the race. The Australian outfit was thrilled with the opportunity to extend support to the Canadian who so readily works for his teammates at nearly every other race in the season. 

“We came to the race looking for a stage win. We ticked that goal with Daryl’s win on stage three. We also wanted to see where everyone was at coming back from a break or from injury, and all the guys are exactly where they need to be at this point in the season. The guys that are preparing for the Tour are on track. Sam [Bewley] get through the race without any incidents. In every respect, it was a good week.” - Sport Director Dave McPartland
