PRESS CONFERENCE
Stage 3 winner Phil Bauhaus said in the press conference: “I wasn’t sure that I’d won when I crossed the line. It was really close, especially with Marcel Kittel coming very fast from behind. I was super happy when I was told I won. I came in good position behind Elia Viviani in the last corner and I could start my sprint from his back wheel. I’m very proud to take the win against those big names. Every win is important. This one is different from last year’s at the Dauphiné. It’s early in the season. It’s also the first win for our team. We’ll build our confidence up on the win I got today.”

Abu Dhabi Tour #1: Cavendish crashes out on stage 1

Concussion rules Mark Cavendish out of Abu Dhabi Tour
Alexander Kristoff (UAE – Team Emirates) won the opening stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour, sprinting to the stage win ahead of Andrea Gaurdini (Bardiani -CSF) and Caleb Ewan (Mitchelton-Scott).

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka was dealt a massive blow even before racing truly got underway on stage 1 of the Abu Dhabi Tour. Mark Cavendish was involved in a crash in the neutral zone. It seemed the race director’s car slowed suddenly as it led the peloton out of Madinat Zayed, the reaction in the peloton saw 4 riders, including our Manxman, go down.

Unfortunately Cavendish had to abandon the Abu Dhabi Tour as a result of the crash. “Mark sustained a concussion and a whiplash injury after his crash today. Due to the concussion, we were not willing to risk rider safety and the call was made for Mark to stop the race. A serious neck injury has been excluded in hospital. He currently has some concussive symptoms and neck pain, but is otherwise stable. We will monitor Mark’s condition closely going forward.” explains Team Doctor, Dr Adrian Rotunno.

Abu Dhabi, 18. Oktober 2016 – Die zweite UCI Cycling Gala, die heute abend in Abu Dhabi stattfand, feierte die diesjährigen größten Erfolge im professionellen Radfahren.

Die neu gekrönte Elite Amalie Dideriksen und Peter Sagan zählten zu den 24 Weltmeistertiteln, der Mannschaften und Nationen aus der UCI WorldTour, der UCI Women’s WorldTour, den Olympischen Spielen, Paralympischen Spielen und der UCI Road Weltmeisterschaft.

Für ihre zweite Auflage kehrte die UCI Cycling Gala in die Hauptstadt der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate zurück und wurde erneut vom Abu Dhabi Sports Council und der United Arab Emirates Cycling Federation in Zusammenarbeit mit RCS Sport veranstaltet. Es dauerte zwei Tage vor dem vier-etappen Radrennen der Emirate der Abu Dhabi Tour (20.-23. Oktober).

ABU DHABI TOUR TEAM VORSTELLUNG
Neben der Veranstaltung wurden die Teams, die an der Abu Dhabi Tour teilnahmen, beginnend am Donnerstag 20 und Ende am Sonntag, 23. Oktober auf der Bühne vorgestellt.

Neben den Titelpreisen an die diesjährigen UCI World Champions und WorldTour-Sieger, war es einer der Olympiaden, die heute Abend einen weiteren Sonderpreis bei der UCI Cycling Gala erhielten: Elia Viviani. “Der Gewinnende Geist” ist ein einzigartiger Abu Dhabi Sports Council Preis für den Fahrer, der Hartnäckigkeit, Stärke und unbeugsamen Geist in der Erreichung des Sieges in diesem Jahr zeigte. Der Italiener, der das Omnium-Podium bei den Olympischen Spielen in London 2012 nach so langer Zeit verpasst hatte, wartete vier Jahre auf seine sportliche Rache und gewann in der letzten Omnium-Saison sogar mit einem Sturz, und schließlich gewann er die olympische Goldmedaille in Rio dieses Jahr.

Seine Exzellenz Aref Al Awani, Generalsekretär des Abu Dhabi Sports Council, sagte: “Es wurde uns nahegelegt die UCI Cycling Gala erneut zu beherzigen und einige unglaubliche Leistungen von männlichen und weiblichen Radfahrern zu würdigen – es war eine fantastische Feier der diesjährigen Radfahr Saisont. Mit drei großen Radsportveranstaltungen in der gleichen Woche im Mittleren Osten, freuen wir uns sehr darauf, dass Abu Dhabi im globalen Radsport der sportliche Scheinwerfer ist. ”

UCI-Präsident Brian Cookson sagte: “Es war eine hervorragende Straßen Saison für Männer und Frauen, nicht zuletzt auf der Rückseite der Olympischen Spiele, Paralympische Spiele und der Eröffnungs-UCI WorldTour für Frauen. Die UCI Cycling Gala gibt uns die Gelegenheit, einige der phänomenalen Leistungen aus einer unvergesslichen Saison zu feiern. Das Timing dieser Feier könnte nicht besser sein, nur wenige Tage nach der UCI Road Weltmeisterschaft in Doha, Katar, eine erste im Nahen Osten und am Vorabend die Abu Dhabi Tour. ”
