Ben Zwiehoff beendet Tour of Türkiye auf Platz 2

Plätze 2 und 4 in der Gesamtwertung, ein Etappensieg und der Gewinn der Mannschaftswertung – es war eine erfolgreiche Tour of Türkiye für BORA – hansgrohe.

Das Klassement wurde bereits am dritten Tag mit der schweren Bergankunft zum Babadağ gemacht. Ben Zwiehoff kletterte sowohl dort als auch in der Gesamtwertung auf Platz 2. Diesen gab er bis zum Schlusstag in Istanbul nicht mehr auf. Für Zwiehoff ist es nach dem 2. Rang bei der Czech Tour bereits das zweite Podium am Ende einer Rundfahrt in dieser Saison.

Ben Zwiehoff: „Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit meinem zweiten Platz. Uns war klar, dass es sehr schwer werden würde, Lutsenko noch aus dem Trikot zu fahren. Aber wir haben alles versucht und jeden Tag immer wieder angegriffen. Insgesamt war es ein Super-Rennen für uns. Nicht umsonst haben wir die Teamwertung gewonnen und gezeigt, dass wir eine superstarke Truppe sind.“

Florian Lipowitz (4.) und Anton Palzer (10.) runden für BORA – hansgrohe das sehr gute Teamergebnis in der Türkei ab, das mit dem Gewinn der Mannschaftswertung belohnt wird. Für Aufsehen hat auch der Doppelsieg des Teams auf der 5. Etappe gesorgt. Nico Denz setzte sich im anspruchsvollen Finale von Bodrum vor Matt Walls durch.

Bernie Eisel, Sportlicher Leiter bei der Tour of Türkiye: „Wir können ein positives Fazit zu diesem Saisonabschluss hier in der Türkei ziehen. Die Etappen waren herausfordernd, aber die Jungs sind sehr gut gefahren. Auch heute auf der Schlussetappe haben wir noch einmal angegriffen und alles probiert. Mit dem Etappensieg und drei Mann in den Top10 haben wir die Rundfahrt geprägt.“

Groves also loves Burriana

On the day after he claimed another victory in Catalunya (Tarragona), Kaden Groves (Alpecin-Deceuninck) sprinted to victory in Burriana (Valencia), where he got the best of Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) and Dries Van Gestel (Total Energies). This win is the 20th for an Australian rider in La Vuelta, with Groves joining Michael Matthews as the best Aussie scorers in the Spanish Grand Tour (3 victories each). Back to back wins in La Vuelta were only achieved by John Degenkolb (2014) and Sam Bennett (2022) in recent years. Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) chased bonus seconds on the eve of another mountain showdown up the Alto de Javalambre.

It’s a nervous start from Morella, with a peloton wary of crosswinds that could turn the race upside down on the way to a seaside finish in Burriana. Eddie Dunbar (Jayco AlUla) crashes in the neutral start and is forced to abandon. Riders try to get away as soon as the flag drops but the peloton don’t give them any margin.

Fagundez shines for Uruguay

After 16 kilometres of battle, Eric Fagundez (Burgos-BH) sets off and makes the break of the day. At the end of his first season in the WorldTour, the young rider shows his colour at the front as the third Uruguayan to ever participate in La Vuelta.
After 60 kilometres of racing, the gap reaches a maximum of 5’30’’. Alpecin-Deceuninck drive the bunch with Jason Osborne setting the pace on the day after Kaden Groves won in Tarragona.

Sepulveda chases the KOM points
The gap is down to 1’50’’ at the bottom of the cat-2 climb up Collado de Ibola (to be summited with 53.7km to go). Already a history maker as the first Argentinian to ever lead a standing in a Grand Tour, Eduardo Sepulveda (Lotto Dstny) sets off to bridge the gap to Fagundez and score more KOM points ahead of another mountain stage on Thursday.
Sepulveda catches Fagundez with 3km to go to the summit and drops a kilometre further up the road. At the summit, the Argentinian rider takes 5 KOM points. The peloton trail by 1’08’’.

The intermediate sprint for Evenepoel, the bunch sprint for Groves

Fagundez is caught by the bunch with 41km to go. Sepulveda is still 20’’ ahead. He is caught 3 kilometres further, with Alpecin-Deceuninck still driving the bunch.
Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) makes the most of the intermediate sprint to take 6 bonus seconds ahead of Kaden Groves.
The intensity keeps rising until the last kilometre. Alpecin-Deceuninck launch the sprint for Groves, who delivers another victory just ahead of Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers).

Groves just loves Catalunya

First bunch sprint of La Vuelta 23, first success for the Australian rocket Kaden Groves! The sprinter from Alpecin-Deceuninck mastered a tricky finale in the streets of Tarragona to take his third Grand Tour win, the second in La Vuelta, and his fourth success in the area, after three stage wins in the Volta a Catalunya. Juan Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates) tried to anticipate the uphill sprint but Groves followed him and passed him on the line. Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step) retained La Roja he claimed in Andorra. Eduardo Sepulveda (Lotto Dstny) takes the polka dots and makes history as the first Argentinian leader of a Grand Tour standing.

On the day after the first mountain showdown of La Vuelta 23, the peloton head back to Catalunya and to the seaside, with 184.6km of racing to Tarragona.
Three riders attack as soon as the race begins. Eduardo Sepulveda (Lotto Dstny), on the hunt for KOM points to rightfully claim the polka-dot jersey he wears on loan from Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quick-Step), is joined at the front by Ander Okamika (Burgos-BH) and David Gonzalez (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA).

Sepulveda makes history
The three leaders rapidly open a gap of 2’20’’. But Kaden Groves’ Alpecin-Deceuninck and Alberto Dainese’s DSM-Firmenich are also quick to react in order to control the gap at around 2 minutes.

The intensity picks up in the peloton ahead of the two climbs of the day, the cat-3 ascents up Alto de Belltall (to be summited with 53.8km to go) and Coll de Villa (30.6km). The gap is down to 1’20’’ as the bottom of the first climb. Sepulveda takes 3 KOM points at the summit.
The gap drops down to 30’’ on the following climb, but Sepulveda still takes 3 more KOM points to all but seal the polka-dot jersey. He makes history as the first Argentinian to ever lead a standing in a Grand Tour (his compatriot Bruno Sivilotti won stage 1a of La Vuelta in 1966, but he was riding as an Italian at the time, before he became Argentinian).

Coquard goes down, Groves powers up

Sepulveda is caught with 22km to go, while Okamika and Gonzalez keep pushing with a minimal gap. They’re caught 19km away from the finish. The tension rises in the bunch and a dozen of riders hit the deck inside the last 5 kilometres, including Bryan Coquard (Cofidis) and Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain Victorious).
Marijn van den Berg (EF Education-EasyPost) misses a turn as he tries to anticipate the uphill finish. Juan Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates) opens up from far away but nobody can resist Kaden Groves.
