Bernhard Auinger, Euronova:

"I'm really happy with this result and it's a nice new experience. It's been a long time since I've been at the top of the podium! This was my best start of the season and after the first corner I was able to build up a good lead ahead of the field. Nicky was pushing very hard and put a great deal of pressure on me but I managed to hold on and bring my first victory home to the team."
