Tour de La Provence: Philippe Gilbert motors on F1 circuit

Gorka Izagirre retains the lead with two seconds over Thibaut Pinot and Tony Gallopin
16th February, 2018 – Le Castellet, France: The 2012 World Champion Philippe Gilbert of Deceuninck-Quick Step claimed the 75th victory of his pro career as he outsprinted the other 22 members of the front group on the Paul-Ricard car racing circuit of Le Castellet, home of the Formula 1 French Grand Prix. Closing in third place – despite being on antibiotics due to sickness – Tony Gallopin of AG2R-La Mondiale moved up on GC, now just two seconds adrift in the same time with Groupama-FDJ’s Thibaut Pinot. Despite a shortage of team-mates, Astana’s Gorka Izagirre retained the lead ahead of the conclusive stage.
After the finish, stage winner Philippe Gilbert said: “It was a pretty fast sprint coming after a tight curve. I managed to get a good position and I launched my sprint 120 metres before the end. It was the right timing. I came to the Tour de La Provence to add racing miles, that’s why I didn’t try anything before and put all my eggs in the basket of a sprint finish. In a cycling season, there’s always the question on when to get the first win. A victory delivers confidence, rest and serenity. It’s my first one on a car racing circuit but I knew Le Castellet thanks to having trained here with BMC before a Team Time Trial World Championship. I’m delighted to leave it with the sweetness of a victory.”

The GC leader Gorka Izagirre said: “It’s been a very difficult day. I saved myself well, but Groupama-FDJ were up there with three riders and they massacred me! I believe it’ll be another difficult day tomorrow because the gaps are very tight. Now Tony Gallopin will be another rider to watch out closely because he is only two seconds down.”

Tour of Oman 2019

The key infos:
– Riders have arrived from all around the World to kick-off the 10th edition of the Tour of Oman with an unprecedented stage on Saturday.
– Alexey Lutsenko, the overall winner in 2018, and Alexander Kristoff, who hasn’t missed a single edition, are hungry for more omani success.
– Bryan Coquard, Nacer Bouhanni and André Greipel are ready to battle it out in the sprints.

Kristoff, a proper Omani
I have a small competition with Micky Schär, he’s also been there 10 times”, Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) laughed ahead of his tenth participation on the Tour of Oman. “I told him I won’t quit until he does!” Apart from this rivalry, the powerful Norwegian wants to open his victory account for this season and add more success to the 8 stage wins he already claimed in the Sultanate: “There’s a strong field so it won’t be easy but at least I know how to win here, especially on the Matrah corniche. André (Greipel) also knows how to win there but I already have it set on my mind how I want to do this.”
Lutsenko: “We’re here with a very strong team”
Winner of the 2018 Tour of Oman, Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) wats to become the second rider to win the race twice, after Chris Froome did it in 2013 and 2014. The Kazakh champ claimed his ambitions as he came back from two weeks of altitude training in Tenerife: “Winning here last year was awesome. It’s a new season now and this is my first race of the year, I’m very motivated. We’re here with a very strong team, Magnus (Cort Nielsen) and Davide (Ballerini) can try to win stages and I’ll fight for the general classification. The Green Mountain stage will be decisive for the overall victory. Six kilometres, 11%… It’s really hard.”
Sprinters aim for success
Bryan Coquard (Vital Concept-B&B Hotels) won the first stage last year and he hopes to “do as well this year. I feel more liberated this year because I’ve already won (1 stage of the Étoile de Bessèges).” Among French sprinters, Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) wants to “get into rhythm as the days go by. It’s my seventh participation on a race I really like. We get some good racing under the Sun and I want to come back to Europe with strong legs and good results.” André Greipel has similar ambitions with his new team Arkéa-Samsic: “It won’t be easy because there are not many stage for sprinters but I want to come out of here with a stage win.”
How to follow the race
Images of the Tour of Oman will be broadcasted on TV across five continents and available everywhere through social media. A 26’ daily highlights video will be available in 185 countries, after a new agreement was found with Australian broadcaster SBS. Fans can also turn to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They will receive live updates from the race and enjoy the best videos and pictures from the race to fully live the experience of a unique event.

Zeitfahren Tour de Provence 2019

Ein wahren Rohdiamanten hat sich Team SKY mit der Verpflichtung von Bahnspezialist Ganna Filippo ins Nest gelegt.
Der 22-Jährige war schon beim UAE Team Emirates für viele Erfolge seiner Mannschaft verantwortlich, zum Beispiel am 1.5.2018 bei Frankfurt-Eschborn, als er den abgehängten Sprinter Alexander Kristoff wieder an die Spitze zurückfuhr und dieser dann den finalen Sprint gewann.
Future winner Kristoff getting dropped during the 2nd passage of the Mammolshainer Stich, but his teammates, here Filippo Ganna (5), were working hard to get him back into the action.
