Tour of Austria, Stage 6: Zahner Top 10

9. July 2010

Laxenburg, Austria

Simon Zahner scored a 10th-place finish for the BMC Racing Team Friday as the Tour of Austria ended its longest stage (231 kilometers) in a bunch sprint.

Time Trial Saturday
As the peloton reeled in a three-man breakaway near the finish, the BMC Racing Team moved Zahner to the front. "We were really well organized today and everyone helped in the sprint from about 20 km out," Jackson Stewart said. "We had Simon well-positioned, but he had some trouble in the final turn."  André Greipel (Team HTC-Columbia) won his second stage. Saturday's penultimate stage is a flat, 26-km individual time trial.
