SHEEHAN, THE HUGE AMERICAN SURPRISE

A crazy race, a completely undecided scenario in the hot dust of the vineyard paths, and a completely new winner: it’s Riley Sheehan, a trainee with Israel-Premier Tech, who won this 117th Paris-Tours after a very close sprint against his four breakaway companions. It’s the first victory for the 23-year-old American. A major first, too, for the United States, which had never won on Avenue de Grammont. The heroic Lewis Askey (Groupama – FDJ) who led all day, took second place ahead of Tobias Halland Johannessen (Uno X).

157 riders set off in the shadow of the imposing Chartres Cathedral, bathed in bright sunlight, for the 117th edition of Paris-Tours. It was an emotional start for several riders, including Greg Van Avermaet (AG2R Citroën) and Tony Gallopin (Lidl-Trek), who pinned on their race numbers for the last time in their careers. After covering more than thirty kilometers at high speed, a group of five riders finally broke away: Lewis Askey (Groupama FDJ), Théo Delacroix (Intermarché Circus Wanty), Joseph Rosskopf (Q36.5), Maxime Jarnet (Van Rysel – Roubaix Lille Metropole), and Axel Narbonne Zuccarelli (Nice Metropole Côte d’Azur). The gap never reached extravagant proportions before the first challenges of the day.

Arnaud De Lie eliminated due to a mechanical issue

The Jumbo-Visma team of Christophe Laporte, the Lotto Dstny team of Arnaud De Lie and the Bora-Hansgrohe team of Jordi Meeus were controlling the offensive before entering the first vineyard path, Limeray, at 67.1 kilometers from the finish. In the ninth sector, the Lotto Dstny leader suffered a puncture, as did Jordi Meeus, who got caught in a crash. The peloton fragmented completely, marked by multiple attacks and punctures. In the dust, European champion Christophe Laporte, Greg Van Avermaet, Magnus Cort Nielsen or Jasper Stuyven, to name a few, lost precious energy trying to get back into the first group after mechanical problems. Arnaud De Lie, on the other hand, faced numerous setbacks, leaving his hopes in the dust.

Heroic performance by Lewis Askey

In front, the impressive Lewis Askey, only twenty-two years old, put up a strong resistance as the moves kept coming. Biniam Girmay (Intermarché – Circus Wanty) tried, as did Matteo Trentin (UAE) and John Degenkolb (DSM-Firmenich). There was no letup. The British rider was finally caught on the last difficulty of the day, the Rochecobron climb, by a group of four riders who had broken away about twenty kilometers from the finish: Olivier Le Gac (Groupama FDJ), Tobias Halland Johannessen (Uno X), Riley Sheehan (Israel) and Joris Delbove (St Michel). Behind them, the Arkea Samsic team of the top favorite Arnaud Démare made the effort to close the gap before the famous Avenue de Grammont.

A first victory for the United States

However, their efforts were in vain as the breakaway group contested the victory in the shade of the plane trees. It was the American Riley Sheehan, only twenty-three years old and a trainee with Israel – Premier Tech, who proved to be the strongest at the end of an extremely close sprint.

Williams conquers the Arctic

Israel-Premier Tech’s Stephen Williams won the 2023 Arctic Race of Norway by only one second over Astana Qazaqstan’s Christian Scaroni, emulating the minimal gap that allowed Alexey Lutsenko to claim the 2019 title with Warren Barguil as the runner-up. Team dsm-firmenich’s Kevin Vermaerke stood third on the final podium, taking advantage of the bonus seconds he scored at the beginning of this beautiful final stage that finished in the breath-taking North Cape, one of the northernmost spots in Europe. Arkea-Samsic’s Clement Champoussin was the fastest in the uphill sprint that settled the day, defeating Norwegian National Team’s Odd Christian Eiking and Astana Qazaqstan’s Michele Gazzoli.

106 riders took the start in the fourth and final stage of the 2023 Arctic Race of Norway, held between Kvalsund and the North Cape over 171,4 kilometres, at 13:40. There was some fast racing to begin, as none of the attackers was able to go clear ahead of the Skaidi (IS, km 21,1) intermediate sprint on which Noah Hobbs (Groupama-FDJ Continental) took three bonus seconds ahead of Kevin Vermaerke (Team dsm-firmenich) and Dylan Teuns (Israel-Premier Tech), who in turn collected two and one. A few minutes later, Human Powered Health’s Sebastian Schonberger was first atop Skaidi Summit (KOM, km 23,4).

A big breakaway day

A 19-strong group tried to escape from the peloton after 31 kilometres, with Dylan Teuns (Israel-Premier Tech), Guillaume Martin (Cofidis), Igor Arrieta (Equipo Kern Pharma) or Andre Drege (Coop-Repsol) amongst many others. They were not given much leeway, though, and their attempt got shut down after an intense chase. 68 kilometres into the race, a group of 15 managed to really establish itself at the head of the race. Jonas Hvideberg (Team dsm-firmenich), Hugo Toumire (Cofidis), Ludvik Holstad, Iver Knotten (Norwegian National Team), August Jensen, Kristian Aasvold (Human Powered Health), Alessandro Verre (Arkea-Samsic), Walter Calzoni (Q36.5), Frederik Dversnes (Uno-X), Kevin Colleoni (Jayco-AlUla), Pablo Carrascosa (Equipo Kern Pharma), Lennert Teugels (Bingoal WB), Rodrigo Alvarez (Burgos BH), Tobias Nakken (Trinity Racing) and the aforementioned Hobbs were the ones to put some daylight between themselves and the peloton led by Israel-Premier Tech and Astana Qazaqstan, opening a gap that peaked at 2’45” with 70 kilometres left to race.

Hobbs claims all the intermediate sprints

Midnight Sun jersey wearer during stage 3 Noah Hobbs led the way through Hjelness (IS, km 109,1) as Nakken got dropped from the break. The Groupama-FDJ Continental rider was also first across Storbukt (IS, km 139,9), at which point the gap had dropped down to 1’45”. The riders thus entered the final thirty kilometres of the race, on which three classified climbs including the summit finish at the Nordkapp (the iconic North Cape) were to decide this 10th edition of the Arctic Race of Norway.

Calzoni nearly makes it

As soon as the peloton hit the first slopes of the climb to Skipsfjord Summit (KOM, km 150,2), Cofidis and Arkea-Samsic took the helm of the peloton, reducing it to 50 riders as the break was whittled down to just six members: Hvideberg, Calzoni, Knotten, Jensen, Dversnes and Teugels. The Human Powered Health rider was first across the summit, where the peloton trialled behind the front of the race by 1’20”. The race heated up during the climb to Vestfjlordfjellet Summit (KOM, km 165), with Calzoni cresting it first as he was the last of the men of the breakaway not to be reeled in by the main group. The Italian rider kept his solo effort and managed to reach the last kilometre with a slight gap over the favourites, who were attacking left and right behind. There was no happy ending for Calzoni, though, as he was caught in the final ramp with 200 meters to go. The Israel-Premier Tech team launched the sprint, yet Arkea-Samsic’s Clement Champoussin was quicker than the other contenders and managed to claim his first victory of the season. The Israeli team still had a reason to smile as their Stephen Williams kept the Midnight Sun jersey and was crowned as overall winner of the event.

Williams claims the win in Havoysund after ferocious race

The grueling weather conditions didn’t keep the peloton of the Arctic Race of Norway from putting quite a show on in the third stage of the 10th edition of this beautiful event. Several long-range attacks took place, with an excellent breakaway led by Peacock jersey wearer Vincent Van Hemelen (Flanders-Baloise) as the highlight. It all came down to an uphill sprint in the final climb to Havoysund, though. Great Britain’s Stephen Williams took both the stage win and the Midnight Sun jersey, overtaking Astana Qazaqstan’s Christian Scaroni (3rd at the finish line) in the provisional GC by just one second. Runner-up to Williams in the fight for the stage was Arkea-Samsic’s Clement Champoussin. The overall victory is still up for grabs in the fourth and last stage to Nordkapp – the iconic North Cape.

106 riders took the start in the third stage of the 2023 Arctic Race of Norway, held between Hammerfest and Havoysund over 167 kilometres, at 14:00. After a few attacks, six riders went clear 5 kilometres into the race: Ulrik Tvedt (Norwegian National Team), Paul Double (Human Powered Health), Michel Ries (Arkea-Samsic), KOM classification leader Vincent Van Hemelen (Flanders-Baloise), Karsten Larsen Feldmann and Anton Stensby (Coop-Repsol). At kilometre 28, they clocked an advantage of 4’00” over a peaceful bunch that rode at a steady pace, marshalled by Groupama-FDJ Continental.

Van Hemelen secures his Peacock jersey

Stensby led the way through both Skaidi (IS, km 52,5) and Lillefjord (IS, km 110,5), while Van Hemelen secured his Peacock jersey by being first atop Skaidi Summit (KOM, km 54,6). The advantage of the front group had increased up to 5’00” with 72 kilometres to go. With 65 remaining, Israel-Premier Tech, Astana Qazaqstan and Uno-X joined race leader Noah Hobbs’ teammates at the helm of the peloton and tried to launch echelons taking advantage of a crosswinds section. Their first efforts were fruitless, yet their second attempt with 40 kilometres to go did indeed whittle the main group down to 35 riders. Many of them unsuccessfully tried to power away from this reduced bunch in the following kilometres. Meanwhile, Double was dropped from the break as Van Hemelen passed first through Kirkedalen Summit (KOM, km 134,5), where the gap for the five remaining men at the front was down to just 1’35”.

Israel-Premier Tech went for it

An unfortunate crash with 28 to go took Astana Qazaqstan’s Gianmarco Garofoli out of contention while riding in the main group. Stensby was once again first in the last intermediate sprint of the day at Selvika (IS, km 148,4). The climb to Selvika Summit (KOM, km 153,1) left Van Hemelen alone in the lead with just 10” over the 30-strong favourites group. The Belgian rider was a caught at the base of the 2,2-kilometre race-defining climb to Havoysund by the chasing group, led by Israel-Premier Tech and Uno-X. Israel’s Dylan Teuns hit the afterburners with 350 meters to go, opening the sprint for his teammate Stephen Williams to power past everyone from the second row of the group and claim both his first victory of the season and the Midnight Sun jersey.
