The Tour of the Alps is expected to be a showdown between Bahrain Victorious, Team DSM and Ineos Grenadiers. However, Groupama-FDJ were also keen to join the action on stage 2 and show their strength by placing Michael Storer and Matteo Badilatti in the break, before Attila Valter finished third in the sprint behind Pello Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious) and Romain Bardet (Team DSM) and moved up to third overall.    

Valter is working to peak for the Giro d’Italia which starts on his home roads in Hungary, while Storer is keen to win again after his two stage victories at the 2021 Vuelta a España.
