The INEOS Grenadiers are delighted to confirm the signing of the German under 23 national road race champion Kim Heiduk.

Heiduk, 21, has spent three years with Team Lotto – Kern Hause and enjoyed some impressive results across 2021, catching the eye of the team.
The neo-pro has signed a two-year deal with the team and can’t wait to get started and continue his development as a rider.
He said: “As soon as I heard about INEOS’ interest, I knew it was the right team for me. It was an incredible feeling. I’m delighted to become a Grenadier.
“I’m a very disciplined rider and I’m focused on what I need to improve over the next two years. I believe I can be good in the Classics and I’ve had a lot of fun in those races. I see myself as a pretty good sprinter but I don’t know where I’ll be with the pros. It’s not very easy to win a race solo, so it’s good to have a sprint!
“I can’t wait to experience lots of different races next year. It will be all about discovery and development.”

INEOS Grenadiers Deputy Team Principal Rod Ellingworth said: “Kim had an impressive start to 2021 and all of our interactions with him have been extremely positive. He’s determined to learn and improve and he’s starting his professional career from a great place. We’re excited to see him push on next year and adapt to life as a Grenadier.”
Heiduk raced to the under 23 German road race title in May and enjoyed further impressive results in the opening part of the season, at the Tour of Rhodes, Tour d’eure-et-Loir and Orlen Nations Grand Prix.
“The first part of my year was very good,” explained Kim. “In all of my races, I feel that I had good results or did a good job for the team. But the second half has been tough – I crashed in Tour de l’Avenir and after a few days off, I got back into racing at the Deutschland Tour, but the legs weren’t quite there as I hoped. I then had a training accident with a car and a week before the worlds the doctor said my shoulder was still not ready to compete. Mentally, that was quite hard, but I’ve put that behind me now and am enjoying my end to the season.”
Before signing his deal, Heiduk went for a training ride with the Grenadiers Development Sports Director Christian Knees in their native Germany. The pair have struck up a good relationship which has helped Kim integrate into the team.
“The first ride with Christian was great and we spoke a lot. He lives a few hours away from me so we’ve not been able to ride together much since but we’ve spoken a lot – we have contact nearly every day. I feel really comfortable and have nothing but good feelings about joining the team.”
Heiduk is also very thankful to Lotto – Kern Hause for their support over the last three years. “I was with the team for three seasons and I was very happy. They helped me feel confident and it was the right team for my development. I now feel the same about this next step and I can’t wait to start.”

Ide Schelling mit starkem zweiten Platz zum Auftakt der Tour of Norway

Die erste Etappe der Tour of Norway 2021 führte bei angenehmen Wetterbedingungen über 156 Kilometer und profiliertes Terrain von Egersund nach Sokndal. Mit einem Schlussansteig der zweiten Kategorie sollte es schon eine erste Vorentscheidung im Kampf um das Gesamtklassement geben. Während sich zu Beginn der Etappe vier Fahrer vom Hauptfeld absetzen konnten, waren die BORA-hansgrohe Fahrer gesammelt im Peloton vertreten. In der Vorbereitung auf das Finale verkleinerte sich das Hauptfeld durch die profilierte Streckenführung automatisch und der Abstand zu den Ausreißern schrumpfte auf wenige Sekunden bis die letzten beiden Verbliebenen schließlich bei Kilometer 146 gestellt wurden. Die Entscheidung um den Tagessieg und somit auch schon eine erste Vorentscheidung für den Gesamtsieg brachte der 4,7 Kilometer lange und im Schnitt 5,7% steile Schlussanstieg, welcher mit Abschnitten von bis über 15% nicht zu unterschätzen war. Ide Schelling konnte sich dann im Schlussanstieg mit einer starken Attacke von der Gruppe der Favoriten lösen, sodass er nur noch einen Begleiter hatte. Aufgrund dessen Sprintstärke führte Schelling das Duo alleine ins Ziel, um möglichst viel Zeit für die Gesamtwertung herauszuholen und wurde starker Zweiter. Mit über 12 Sekunden auf die meisten Favoriten hat Schelling damit eine aussichtsreiche Position für den Kampf um die Gesamtwertung.

Stimmen im Ziel
„Ich habe mich heute den ganzen Tag ziemlich gut gefühlt und hatte auch beim letzten Anstieg die richtigen Beine. Als einige Fahrer im Schlussanstieg wieder aufschließen konnten und wir ein wenig umherschauten, beschloss ich, es einfach auszuprobieren und attackierte. Als ich Hayter an meinem Hinterrad sah, war klar, dass ich mich nicht auf einen Sprint konzentrieren sollte und einfach jede mögliche Sekunde für die Gesamtwertung herausholen muss. Im Moment eine gute Position, von hier aus haben wir alle Möglichkeiten offen.“ – Ide Schelling
„Heute war mit über 3000 Höhenmeteren definitiv ein harter Tag für die Fahrer. Zu Beginn konnte sich eine starke Gruppe absetzen und wir versuchten diese zusammen mit den anderen großen Mannschaften zu kontrollieren, um Ide bestmöglich ins Finale zu bringen. Dieser hat einen tollen Job gemacht und mit seiner Attacke alle überrascht. Gegen seinen Begleiter Ethan Hayter wussten wir, dass er im Sprint wenig Chancen haben würde, daher hat er bis zum Zielstrich alles gegeben und ist von vorne gefahren, um möglichst viel Zeit für die Gesamtwertung herauszufahren.“ – Jean-Pierre Heynderickx, Sportlicher Leiter

THE HEROES OF LA VUELTA (5/6) EGAN BERNAL


Photo by Plomi

Egan Bernal was a hero of La Vuelta before he even participated in it. Three years ago, he envisioned the Spanish Grand Tour as the ideal terrain for his debut in a three-week race, but circumstances bring him there for the first time in 2021 with the prospect of becoming the youngest winner of the three Grand Tours!
In 85 years, since La Vuelta joined the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia to form the three Grand Tours, seven riders have registered their names in the winning records of each of them: Jacques Anquetil (at 29 years old), Felice Gimondi (25), Eddy Merckx (27), Bernard Hinault (25), Alberto Contador (25), Vincenzo Nibali (29) and Chris Froome (33). Looking more closely, the one who achieved the treble at the youngest age is Bernard Hinault, who was 25 years, 6 months and 24 days old when the Giro arrived in Milan on June 7, 1980. Since January 13, Egan Bernal is 24 years old. If he climbs on the top step of the podium on September 5 in Obradoiro Square in Santiago de Compostela, he will therefore beat – largely – a new precocity record after having dethroned Felice Gimondi as youngest Yellow Jersey of the Tour de France in Paris in 2019 (at 22) before being himself debunked by Tadej Pogacar (21).

In the months following his triumph (to be the first Colombian to win the Tour was huge in the legend of global cycling and national sport), Egan Bernal repeated his dearest wish as an athlete: “I want to win all three Grand Tours, it would be great to be part of cycling history like that.“ Claiming the three was therefore a priority, in his mind, before even thinking of winning the Tour de France a second time, a goal his employer, Team Ineos, set for him in 2020, but without success since back pain forced him to retire and prematurely end his season. He has patiently rebuilt since then, and won the Giro in May.
It is curious to note that in the end, nothing went as planned in the already extraordinary career of the climber of Zipaquira. He turned pro at 18, at an age usually dedicated to learning in the U23 ranks, on the road after being trained as a mountain biker, and in Italy, in a team, Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec, who, logically, should have entered the Giro d’Italia. But during the two years he spent in Gianni Savio’s team (2016 and 2017), they were not invited to the Corsa Rosa! The Colombian took the opportunity to win the 2017 Tour de l’Avenir, like his compatriots Nairo Quintana, Esteban Chaves and Miguel Ángel López shortly before him, and he was sold to Team Sky. When he joined the British powerhouse, he was not guaranteed to compete in a three-week race in the first year, but he hoped La Vuelta 18 would be his first Grand Tour, to discover this big world at 21 years old. Circumstances precipitated things: 2nd in the Tour de Romandie behind Primoz Roglic (and these two are ready for more this Summer!) and winner of the Tour of California in May, he appeared ready to make his debut on the main stage sooner than expected, while Chris Froome, the indisputable leader of Team Sky at the time, was battling hard at the Giro d’Italia, turning the situation to his advantage at the very end. The Briton needed reinforcement in the mountains, and so instead of waiting for La Vuelta, Egan Bernal was called up for the Tour de France where he was exemplary in the service of Geraint Thomas, who finally dominated the situation, while Froome climbed on the third step of the podium.

The Colombian was not yet supposed to assume leadership on the 2019 Tour. Froome’s terrible fall at the Critérium du Dauphiné put him higher in the hierarchy. He was still behind Thomas at the exit of the Pyrenees but two stages in the Alps propelled him to the top. His career was turned upside down, his personal life too. The 2020 Tour brought him back to the great difficulties of the profession, and, finally, allowed him to return to his initial dream: to shine on the three Grand Tours, which he watched, as a child, on TV, with as much passion for the three. As soon as the victory was assured in the Giro last May, he was asked about the possibility of a follow-up to the Tour de France and the prospect of becoming Olympic champion. “No”, he replied. „My priority now is to win La Vuelta as well.“

„The presence of Egan Bernal is a very important appeal for La Vuelta 21,“ said general manager Javier Guillén. „I want to say, like my fellow Giro organisers this year, that he is finally coming to the start of our race, but we must not forget that he is still very young. Of course, if he won La Vuelta from his first participation, after the Tour and the Giro, that would be historic, but we must not lose sight of the fact that the level of competition is such that it is not won in advance. As he is a very smart boy who keeps his feet on the ground, he knows it won’t be easy. We are obviously delighted to count him among the main protagonists.“

The heroes of La Vuelta (3/6) : Richard Carapaz

Six currently active riders took place on the final podium of the three Grand Tours: Alejandro Valverde, Vincenzo Nibali, Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana, Primoz Roglic and Richard Carapaz. If we extend the statistics to cycling in the 21st century, Carlos Sastre, Denis Menchov, Alberto Contador, Cadel Evans and Joaquim „Purito“ Rodriguez join them. But only one athlete, in the entire history of cycling, has achieved this treble and won the Olympic gold medal in the road race: Richard Carapaz, winner of the Giro 2019, 2nd in La Vuelta 20 and 3rd in the Tour 2021.

Richard Carapaz only returned to competition this year in the Volta a Catalunya (21st) at the end of March and was just as discreet at the Itzulia Pays Basque (19th), for the double reason that his 2020 season was ended late (November 8 with La Vuelta) and that he had big ambitions for this summer. In fact, he has perfectly managed his form: winner of the Tour de Suisse in mid-June, 3rd in the Tour de France and Olympic champion in July. It would have been more than enough to return and enjoy his glory at home. Before him, only one Ecuadorian athlete had won Olympic gold: Jefferson Pérez in racewalking in 1996, and a week after Carapaz, Neisi Dajomes did the same in weightlifting. But he has a still unfulfilled task that is close to his heart: to win La Vuelta.

Last year, instead of expressing any bitterness about the narrowly missed victory (2nd with a gap of 24“ to Primoz Roglic), he left the event by declaring: „I’m leaving very happy because I lived the end of the race with a lot of hope, and throughout the course, I saw a lot of Ecuadorian flags, it was beautiful. I felt special support. These were really great times!“ For the record, this was an autumnal Vuelta with a small number of spectators present. Richard Carapaz’s emotions are therefore likely to be increased tenfold with the support of the „responsible public“ (masked and concerned about social distancing) expected this summer, if he gets back „La Roja“, the red leader’s jersey he wore five days in 2020 before giving it a second time to Primoz Roglic at Mirador de Ézaro (in the ITT). He placed one last banderilla, sharp and sustained, on the final ascent of La Vuelta 20, the Alto de la Covatilla. „I finished this race with the same smile I had when I arrived because I gave everything, it was a beautiful La Vuelta, I had a lot of fun there“, he concluded at the end of this third participation in the Spanish Grand Tour.

Richard Carapaz was a bit late in becoming a hero of La Vuelta unlike the Giro d’Italia where he won (stage 8, Montevergine di Mercogliano), wore the white jersey and finished 4th overall in his first participation in 2018, before bringing the pink jersey all the way to Verona the following year. But it was La Vuelta that served as his first Grand Tour, in 2017, undoubtedly the edition that least favored Movistar, his team at the time (no stage victory, Dani Moreno the best ranked in the final, 18th). For his debut, Richard Carapaz attacked several times without success (his best result: 11th on the Angliru, the day Alberto Contador came out in style on the eve of his end of career). In 2018, despite his record of service at the Giro, he resolved to act as a teammate, in favour of Alejandro Valverde (5th overall after having occupied the podium for a long time) and Nairo Quintana (designated leader at the start, 8th at the finish).
He was still due to participate in La Vuelta 19, but he left the squad at the last moment following a crash in a criterium he rode in the Netherlands the previous Sunday. He was on the way out from Movistar, the team that had accompanied him in his professional debut following his apprenticeship at Lizarte. He often reiterates, citing his former amateur team in Navarre, that he owes the launch of his professional cycling career to Spain. Last year, he was equally grateful to Chris Froome, his Ineos teammate who had helped him despite the difficulties encountered in his physical reconstruction following his terrible accident in 2019, but he did not have the strongest armada to support him.

This time, the British team are lining up particularly impressive names on paper: Egan Bernal, Richard Carapaz, Adam Yates, Pavel Sivakov, Tom Pidcock, Jhonathan Narvaez, Salvatore Puccio and Dylan van Baarle! Carapaz is therefore not the only Olympic champion freshly covered with gold in this squad since Pidcock, 22, cyclo-cross prodigy and already protagonist of the great classics, won the MTB event in Tokyo.
„It is a great honour for us, the organisers, that Team Ineos has fielded such a selection of champions“, said Javier Guillén, General Manager of La Vuelta. „It says a lot about their ambitions. Bernal and Carapaz are the two current leaders in South American cycling and it is a continent that is dear to us. Both have the capacity to win the event like two Colombians did before them [Luis Herrera in 1987 and Nairo Quintana in 2016]. Carapaz is now an icon with its Olympic title. The mastery with which he won the road race has thrilled aficionados all over the world, I think. We also appreciate his kindness and his smile. He has everything to be a hero of La Vuelta.“

Großartige Team Vorarlberg Vorstellung inmitten der Weltspitze beim 74. GP Lugano UCI 1.1 – Wildauer 10., Thalmann 15.!

War das ein Team Vorarlberg Feuerwerk heute am Luganer See im schweizerischen Tessin an der 74. Austragung des Int. GP Lugano über 180 Kilometer!
Moreno, Guerin, Wildauer u. Thalmann matchen sich mit der Weltspitze!
Zuerst ist es Adria Moreno welcher in der Spitzengruppe die Bergpunkte kassiert. Als diese wieder gestellt wird, attackiert Alexis Guerin mit Fabio Aru (ITA / Team Quebeka). Aber auch diese Attacke kam zu früh.
Im Finale des Rennens blitzt in der TV-Übertragung ein neues Team Vorarlberg Trikot auf. Markus Wildauer, der junge Tiroler, attackiert im Finale und kann sich in der Verfolgergruppe rund um Diego Ulissi festsetzten.

Moscon vor Conti und Hermanns – Wildauer auf Rang 10, Thalmann 15.!
Den Sieg aus einer Vier Mann starken Gruppe sichert sich Gianni Moscon (ITA / Ineos) vor Valerio Conti (ITA / UAE Emirates). Dritter Ben Hermanns (BEL / Israel Startup Nation).
Wildauer zeigt sich unbeeindruckt ob der der großen Namen rund um ihn. Er greift in der letzten Runde dann selbst an. Die Kräfte reichen heute für Rang zehn. Dahinter auf Rang 15 mit Roland Thalmann bereits der nächste „Vorarlberger“.

„Das war eine hammerstarke Aktion was alle Jungs heute hier gezaubert haben. Als eine der wenigen Continental Teams konnten wir heute richtige Akzente setzen und auch den großen Teams Paroli bieten. Wildauer hat gezeigt was in ihm steckt, wenn alles passt. Darauf gilt es nun aufzubauen schon bei der nächsten top besetzten Rundfahrt in Rumänien an der Sibiu Tour!“ Werner Salmen – sportlicher Leiter
