TREK-Segafredo 2017 – Haimar Zubeldia beendet Karriere

Die stille Zeit am Jahresende bietet sich für einige Rückblicke ins Radsportjahr 2017 an.


2017 war für einige Radprofis auch das Jahr zur Beendigung ihrer aktiven Karriere. Zu allererst fällt einem natürlich hierbei Alberto Contador ein, der sich in 2017 durch einige sehr beherzte Attacken und schließlich dem Etappensieg bei der VUELTA von seinen Fans verabschiedete und seine Abschiedstour war überall in den Medien präsent.

Gaviria makes it three


The Colombian rider beat Mareczko and Bennett in Reggio Emilia. Tomorrow’s stage TV live coverage starting from 13.05.

Reggio Emilia, 18 May 2017 – The Colombian rider Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors) claimed his third stage victory at the Giro100 as he fended off Italy’s Jakub Mareczko (Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia) and Irishman Sam Bennett (Bora – Hansgrohe) in a bunch sprint in Reggio Emilia at the end of today’s 229km stage which included riding on the A1 Panoramica motorway. Dutchman Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) retained the Maglia Rosa for the third consecutive day.


This is the 25th Giro d’Italia stage victory for Colombian riders, equalling the total for Dutchmen set by Tom Dumoulin when he won Tuesday’s Sagrantino time trial stage.
Before Fernando Gaviria, two other Colombians have won three stages at the Giro but he’s the first one to make the triple in a single edition. The other two are Lucho Herrera (Tre Cime di Lavaredo and Monte Generoso in 1989, Terminillo in 1992) and Nairo Quintana (Val Martello and Cima Grappa in 2014, Blockhaus in 2017).
It’s the second time that Colombian riders have combined to win four stages in a single Giro after Nairo Quintana (twice), Rigoberto Uran and Julian Arredondo imposed themselves on the 2014 edition. That year, their first win was on stage 12. This year, stage 12 marks the fourth Colombian victory.

Only a week before the Giro d’Italia’s Big Start in Sardinia, here we present a second group of potential GC contenders vying for the final victory at the Giro 100.

Milan, 28 April 2017 – The first challenge against the clock will come after the second rest day with the Sagrantino Stage from Foligno to Montefalco (Stage 10), followed by the stage on the Appennines, number 11, from Firenze (Ponte Ema) to Bagno di Romagna where riders will face the Passo della Consuma, Passo della Calla, Passo del Carnaio and Monte Fumaiolo, all four being classified KOM climbs.
The finale of Stage 14, from Castellania to Oropa, is an 11km climb with an average 7% gradient, peaking at 13% a few kilometres from the finish line. The following day’s Stage 15, Valdengo to Bergamo, presents a very similar final section to the 2016 edition of the Classic Monument race Il Lombardia.
Today’s group of GC contenders to watch out for at the Giro d’Italia 100 are:

Thibaut Pinot (FRA – FDJ). The best young rider (and third overall) at the 2014 Tour de France, Pinot decided to prioritize the Giro d’Italia over his home race as he’s convinced the Italian style of racing suits him better. The tattoo on his right bicep (in Italian) says everything about his intention: ‘solo la vittoria è bella’ (‘only victory is beautiful’).
Thibaut Pinot said: “I decided to take part in the Giro100 even before the 99th edition started. For several years I’ve wanted to do it… it’s the right time now. The Giro d’Italia is probably the race that suits me better than any other with the kind of mountains I like and the bad weather there is sometimes in the Dolomites in May. I’m determined to race for GC. The Tour of the Alps has been reassuring in terms of the physical condition I’m in now. I believe I’m ready to fight for the final podium.”

Yas Marina Circuit, 26 February 2017 – Caleb Ewen avenged the embarrassment of his stage two defeat at Al Marina by cruising to victory on the Yas Marina circuit on the final day of the Abu Dhabi Tour – and this time delaying his celebration until after the finish-line. Ridden under floodlights and heavy rain for much of its 143 km, stage four saw Ewan definitively announce his arrival among the fastest sprinters in pro cycling and Rui Alberto Faria da Costa seal overall victory for the “home” team, UAE Abu Dhabi. Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) successfully defended his lead in the Green Jersey competition (Points Classification) sponsored by Nation Towers, Patrick Konrad (Bora – Hansgrohe) grabbed the Black Jersey sponsored by Etihad Airways (Intermediate Sprint Jersey Classification) thanks to his audacious breakaway, Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) kept his White Jersey sponsored by Abu Dhabi Sports Channel (Best Young Rider) and UAE Abu Dhabi took the Team Classification.

At the press conference, the stage winner Caleb Ewan, said: “It feels great. This Tour started on a low with the crash then on stage two I came close but stuffed it up. It was great to repay the team for stuffing it up the other day. The team started working super early and were great.

Jarlinson Pantano stark durch den Wallis

Bilder oder Fotos hochladen

Etape qui s’est déroulée 100% en Suisse avec une première partie très favorable. Il a fallu 150 km pour qu’une échappée puisse prendre forme et creuser l’écart pour se mettre à l’abri d’un retour du peloton.
C’était prévisible et c’est ce qui est arrivé avant d’aborder les deux montées finales, le Col de la Forclaz et la montée vers Finhaut -Emosson.
Belle bataille à l’avant entre Majka, Pantano et le vainqueur du jour Ilnur Zakarin, jeune coureur Russe.
A l’arrière, comme toujours les Sky ont contrôlé à distance leurs adversaires en faisant un rythme soutenu et peu de coureurs, voire personne, n’a été capable d’attaquer.

Le maillot jaune :
Christopher Froome conserve son maillot jaune et prend même un peu d’avance sur tout le monde. Mollema a craqué. On est dans la dernière ligne droite avant Paris et les Alpes sont là mais les grimpeurs sont trop fatigués pour faire quelque chose. Ils nous ont promis des attaques dans la dernière semaine mais je crois qu’ils nous ont raconté des bobards !

Les autres maillots :

Maillot vert du meilleur sprinteur :
Peter Sagan a fait le break. Définitivement il ne peut plus être battu, il faut juste qu’il arrive à Paris.
Mark Cavendish a abandonné, il n’est pas parti ce matin donc il est maintenant mathématiquement hors de portée.

Maillot à pois du meilleur grimpeur :
Majka a fait l’essentiel aujourd’hui en se glissant dans l’échappée, en passant en tête dans l’avant dernier col et en faisant troisième de l’étape. Il a 84 points d’avance sur son poursuivant. Normalement il ne peut pas être battu lui non plus, il reste 111 points à distribuer.

Maillot blanc du meilleur jeune :
Adam Yates semble le plus solide dans ce classement.

Le meilleur combatif :
Jarlinson Pantano, encore présent dans l’échappée termine deuxième et il est le plus combatif du jour.


Tirreno-Adriatico #7: Steve Cummings finishes 6th on GC

Fantastic performance by MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung in first World Tour race of the year
After Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) set an unbeatable time early on, the final individual time trial stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico would end up being a battle of the seconds between the GC riders. Our Steven Cummings started the day 9th on GC but by finishing 8th on the stage, the Brit managed to secure a credible 6th overall.

The first Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung rider to really make an impact on the leader board today was Edvald Boasson Hagen. Eddy crossed the line in 11’49″ over the 10km course, which would be good enough for 10th position on the stage. By the time the GC riders got going, Cancellara, Adriano Malori (Movistar) and Vasil Kiryienka (Team Sky) had all but decided the stage podium respectively.

With less than a minute between 2nd & 10th on GC before the stage start, a number of teams were waiting at the finish line with calculator in hand. The biggest move was to be made by Steve as his 8th position on the stage saw him leapfrog from 9th to 6th. Stevo was just 1 second behind Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) and 40″ from the overall victory, a fantastic result for our African team in our first World Tour race of the year.
