Oliveira goes within inches of stage win in Austria

Portuguese 2nd in sprint finish

Rui Oliveira came within a whisker of a stage victory on stage 2 of the Tour of Austria, missing out narrowly in a group arrival to Davide De Pretto (Jayco AlUla).




The Italian won in the fast finale in Bad Tatzmannsdorf ahead of Oliveira, with UAE Team Emirates racing hard in the final, especially along the short climbs that characterize the last part of the route.




The race gets hillier tomorrow with the stage from Maria Taferl to Steyr (184.5km), where UAE will aim to leave their mark.
