Following a jury decision, today's winners of the third stage of the BIKE Transalp powered by Sigma Daniel Geismayr and Hermann Pernsteiner of Centurion Vaudehave been penalised with additional five minutes. The Austrians riding in the yellow jerseys had infringed the rule to not ride the mountain bikes in the pushing section through the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Prags located in the downhill from Tadega Pass.

Due to the penalty time their German teammates Jochen Kaess and Markus Kaufmann were named winners of the one-week event's third stage which led via 65.28 km and 2,461 metres of climbing from St. Vigil to St. Christina.

As a result, Geismayr and Pernsteiner dropped back to rank three behind of Jeremiah Bishop (USA) and Kristian Hynek (CZE) of Topeak Ergon Racing 1 but remained overall leaders with an advantage of 1:50 minutes over Kaess and Kaufmann.

Just like the defending champions also Italians Diego Cargnelutti and Johnny Cattaneo of Wilier Force Squadra Corse as well as Luis Mejia (CLO) and Joseph Chavarria (CRC) of team 7C were also penalised for the same offence.

Further information on the Transalp can be found on the event homepage.
