Stage One of the Tour of the Alps from Arco to Folgaria (134.6km) was won by Pello Bilbao of Astana.
Louis Meintjes finished best-placed of our riders but it was Natnael Berhane’s the day in the break that caught the eye.
Natnael Berhane – Rider
“Once the race started there were 8 riders in the break and with some great teamwork I managed to jump across to the group myself, and we worked well together.
“I won the first KOM and I now hope that on the next stage to try for the break again, and possibly look for a stage win.”
