Matthew Walls zum Auftakt der Tour de Hongrie auf Platz drei

Nachdem der Giro d’Italia das Land verlassen hat, ging es für BORA – hansgrohe heute in Ungarn mit der fünftägigen Tour de Hongrie (UCI 2.1) weiter. Die erste Etappe führte die Profis über 197,5 hügelige Kilometer von Csákvár nach Székesfehérvár. Erst auf dem letzten Kilometer wurde die vierköpfige Fluchtgruppe des Tages vom Feld gestellt, in dem auch BORA – hansgrohe viel Arbeit geleistet hat. In einem hektischen Finale konnte Matthew Walls beim Sieg von O. Kooij auf einen starken dritten Platz sprinten.

Reaktionen im Ziel
„Das war eine super erste Etappe für uns und mit Platz drei im heutigen Sprint bin ich erstmal zufrieden. Es war ein sehr hektisches Finale und ehrlich gesagt war es eine ziemlich knappe Angelegenheit für die Ausreißergruppe beziehungsweise für uns als Peloton. Die Jungs haben super Nachführarbeit geleistet und mir den Sprint optimal vorbereitet. Die Form stimmt auf jeden Fall, so kann es auch auf den kommenden Etappen weiter gehen.“ Matthew Walls

„Ein super Einstand für uns hier im sonnigen Ungarn! Unser Plan heute war ganz klar für Matthew Walls zu fahren, das haben die Jungs hervorragend gemacht und im Feld viel Arbeit geleistet. Mit einem Podium in die Rundfahrt zu starten ist natürlich auch ein Booster für die Motivation und die Stimmung. Wir freuen uns auf die nächsten Etappen und versuchen auch morgen wieder um den Sieg zu sprinten.“ Torsten Schmidt, Sportlicher Leiter

THEUNS WINS THE STAGE AS HOWSON TAKES THE OVERALL

Edward Theuns (Trek–Segafredo) grabbed the fifth and final stage of the Tour de Hongrie on Budapest’s iconic Andrássy Avenue, leading home a whitewash for the WorldTour teams, which captured every single stage as well the general classification of the 42ndedition. The winner of yesterday’s queenstage to Kékestető, yellow jersey Damien Howson (TeamBikeExchange), sealed the overall victory ahead of Ben Hermans (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Antonio Tiberi (Trek–Segafredo).117 riders took the start of thefifth and final stage on Budapest’s monumental Hősök tere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, ready to tackle a 92 km pancake-flat course in the streets of the Hungarian capital, which was hosting the finale of the Tour for the first time in four years. The road had already dried up after some morning showers. As soon as the flag dropped, the attacks came thick and fast. Riding alone, Erik Fetter (Eolo–Kometa) was the first man to cross the line on Andrássy Avenue, the most famous thoroughfare in Budapest, at the end of the first of twelve laps of the circuit. The 21-year-old Hungarian, who recovered from a nasty crash on Friday to finish eleventh on Kékestető on Saturday, was soon joined by Italian Manuele Boaro (Astana–Premier Tech), Belgian Jordi Warlop (Sport Vlaanderen–Baloise) and Pole Mateusz Grabis (Voster ATS Team), and together they expanded their lead to 40 seconds by the start of the third lap.Hungarian national champion Viktor Filutas (Giotti Victoria–Savini Due), his fellow countryman Gergő Orosz (Hungarian national team), Italian Mattia Viel (Androni Giocattoli–Sidermec) and Pole Piotr Brożyna (Mazowsze–Serce Polski) jumped from the peloton in an attempt to bridge the gap. The chase group trailed the break by 48 seconds with eight laps to go, followed by the peloton a further 27 seconds back. Jordi Meeus’s Bora–Hansgrohe and Phil Bauhaus’s Bahrain Victorious set the pace at the front of the main group for their leaders, who had already won one and two stages of this year’s Tour de Hongrie, respectively, as did overall leader Damien Howson’s BikeExchange, with the Australian determined to defend the yellow jersey he had seized the day before at the top of Kékestető.Around the halfway point, Warlop claimed the second intermediate sprint ahead of Grabis and Fetter, repeating his exploit from earlier, when he had outsprinted Grabis and Boaro at the first intermediate sprint, 23 km into the stage. The peloton picked up steam and reeled in the chase group with 44 kilometres to go. The Hungarian nationalsquad threw in its lot with the teams toiling away at the front of the bunch, helping to cut the gap to just 20 seconds with four laps to go, at which point the peloton decided to let the breakaway dangle out in front for a bit longer to deter any would-be attackers.34-year-old Boaro, the most experienced rider in the escape, with 11 Grand Tour starts under his belt, went on the offensive before the ninth passage of the finish line, taking the third and final intermediate sprint ahead of Warlop and Grabis. The leadingquartet nursed a 40-second lead with 20 kilometres to go. However, four kilometres later, as the race went over the finish
line for the penultimate time, the peloton surged to within 9 seconds of the breakaway thanks Vini Zabù, who were fighting to propelJakub Mareczko to his first stage win in this year’s edition nine months after scoring a treble in the same race.Boaro put in yet another acceleration in a bid to keep the escapees‘ hopes alive, but they were finally snuffed out by the peloton with 11 kilometres to go. The Italian’s 20-year-old teammate, Kazakh Yevgeniy Fedorov, rolled the dice next. Although the runner-up in last year’s UCI Asia Tour never got more than 5 seconds clear of the peloton, it did earn him the privilege of starting the final lap alone at the front. His gallant effort came to an end 4 kilometres before the line, setting the stage for the expected bunch sprint. Edward Theuns, eighth in the 2017 Paris–Roubaix, came out on top. Trek–Segafredo’s 30-year-old Belgian picked up his ninth career victory, the first in almost two years, ahead of Dutchman Olav Kooij (Jumbo–Visma), a decade younger than him, and fellow countryman Timothy Dupont (Bingoal Pauwels Sauces). Green jersey Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) faltered in fourth placebut sealed his victory in the points classification by a wide margin.The top of the general classification remained unchanged after the final parade, modelled on the Champs-Élysées stage of the Tour de France. Damien Howson (Team BikeExchange) wrapped up the42ndedition of the Tour de Hongrie, standing at the pinnacle of the most competitive field in the history of the race, with no fewer than eight WorldTour teams, which took all five stages as well as the three steps of the podium.Howson, third overall last year, claimed his sixth career win and his second overall title, after the 2017 Herald Sun Tour in his home country, Australia. Belgian Ben Hermans (Israel Start-Up Nation) came in second at 16 seconds back. Third at 24 seconds back, 19-year-old Italian Antonio Tiberi (Trek–Segafredo) posted a breakthrough performance with his first stage race podium finish as a pro rider. Finally, the white jersey for the best Hungarian rider went to 26-year-old János Zsombor Pelikán (Androni Giocattoli–Sidermec) in 23rdplace overall

HOWSON SETTLES THE SCORE

Third on the slopes of Kékestető last year, Damien Howson (Team BikeExchange) conquered the „Bluish Mountain“ today and claimed victory in stage4. The Australian now sits in the pole position to take the 42ndTour de Hongrie, which is coming to an end in the streets of Budapest tomorrow.The first three stages were a real treat for sprinters and failed to make much of an impact on the general classification, with a mere 24seconds separating overall leader Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) from the 100th-placed rider. It was but a mirage, as stage4 of the race, a 202kilometre romp to the summit of Kékestető —the highest point of Hungary and the Mátra mountain range—with an altitude gain of 3,221metres, was always going to play into the hands of the climbers. The current maglia rosaof the Giro d’Italia, Attila Valter, took the spoils here last year.Seven men missed the roll call at the start in Balassagyarmat, the City of the Brave, on the border with Slovakia, including the four riders of the Uno-X team, who were forced to withdraw after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. The other three were Norwegian Asbjørn Andersen (Team DSM), Frenchman Charles Planet (Team Novo Nordisk) and Hungarian Gergely Szarka (Giotti Victoria–Savini Due), leaving the peloton with 119riders.Bauhaus padded his lead in the points classification at the intermediate sprint in Szécsény after 16kilometres of racing, edging out Mike Teunissen (Jumbo–Visma), runner-up to the German in stage3 yesterday, and Tom Van Asbroeck (Israel Start-Up Nation).It took 30kilometres for the break of the day to be established. Pole Adrian Kurek (Mazowsze–Serce Polski) was soon joined by Belgian Gilles De Wilde (Sport Vlaanderen–Baloise), fellow Pole Maciej Paterski (Voster ATS Team) and Russian Petr Rikunov (Gazprom–RusVelo). The four men’s advantage peaked at 3′30′′ at kilometre50, with Kékestetőalready looming on the horizon. The finish line on the „Bluish Mountain“, the highest point in Hungary at 1,014metres above sea level, was set up just 20metres below its peak.Both the escapees and the peloton got their first taste of the final climb, except for the last three kilometres, the steepest part of the ascent at an average gradient of 8%. Clad in the red jersey, Paterski wrapped up the mountains classification by taking maximum points at the top of the category2 Mátraháza climb, 70kilometres before the finish, while the main group, led by Bahrain Victorious, trailed by 2′30′′.As the peloton closed to within half a minute of the leading quartet with 15kilometres to go, Bauhaus eased up, aware that retaining the yellow jersey on such a toughclimb was well beyond the capabilities of a rider of his characteristics. Meanwhile, at the front, De Wilde went for broke with a solo move. It was all for naught, as he too was brought back into the fold at
the foot of the final climb, a 12km drag with an average gradient of 5.6%. Damien Howson (Team BikeExchange) fired a warning shot by grabbing three bonus seconds at the last intermediate sprint in Mátrafüred, 11kilometres from the line, followed by two DSM riders, Italian Alberto Dainese (2seconds) and Frenchman Romain Combaud (1). Team BikeExchange brought down the hammer for Howson, whose third place on Kékestető last year made him Valter’s heir presumptive.By the time Caja Rural–Seguros RGA took the right turn coming with 3.5kilometres to go at the helm of the lead group, there were only about 50men left in it. The Spanish Armada wrought havoc on the group and set the stage for 23-year-old Jhojan García to jump with 2kilometres to go. The Colombian’s searing attack put him 15seconds clear of the chasers going into the final kilometre, only for Howson to counter-attack with 800metres to go, overtaking García 300metres later to claim stage4 and seize the yellow jersey.Veteran Ben Hermans (Israel Start-Up Nation) finished second at 9seconds, while García had to settle for fourth place, 19seconds back and four seconds behind 19-year-old Italian Antonio Tiberi (Trek–Segafredo) in third. It was the fifth career win for the 28-year-old Australian. Barring any surprises, he will not have to wait for long to pick up the sixth, as the fifth and final stage, held in the streets of Budapest on Sunday, is tailored to sprinters and unlikely to shake up the general classification. The man from Down Under is now poised to take the 42ndTour de Hongrie and succeed Attila Valter as the winner of the race.

Shortly after a mass pile-up brought down yellow jersey Jordi Meeus (Bora–Hansgrohe), Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) won the bunch sprint that decided stage3 of the Tour de Hongrie in a tumultuous finish in Tata. The German surged in the closing metres to pip Mike Teunissen (Jumbo–Visma) on the line and reclaim the overall lead.As the bunch revved up for stage3 of the Tour de Hongrie, rays of sunshine pierced the clouds above the cobbled streets of Veszprém, the City of Queens, which is set to host the European Capital of Culture in 2023. German Ben Zwiehoff (Bora–Hansgrohe) and Italian Leonardo Marchiori (Androni Giocattoli–Sidermec) missed the roll call and became the first riders to drop out of this edition of the Tour de Hongrie. The 128-strong peloton tucked into the shortest stage of the race, which stretched for 140kilometres and featured two category3 climbs in the first half of the course. Maciej Paterski (Voster ATS Team) padded his lead in the mountains classification after 17kilometres of racing, snapping up the maximum points on offer at the summit of the Hárskút climb (at 584metres, the highest point of the stage) ahead of his teammate and first man to wear the red jersey, Patryk Stosz, and Spaniard Sergio Martín Galán (Caja Rural–Seguros RGA).Local fans turned out in force along the course, gripped by Attila Valter-mania after the reigning champion of the Tour de Hongrie took over the pink jersey in the Giro d’Italia yesterday.Five men jumped from the peloton before the first intermediate sprint in Zirc, 28kilometres intothe stage, where Stosz claimed first place ahead of fellow Pole Norbert Banaszek (Mazowsze–Serce Polski) and Ferenc Szöllősi (Hungarian national team), with Spaniard David Riba Lozano (Novo Nordisk) and Slovenian Aljaž Jarc (Adria Mobil) in tow.Their advantage peaked at three minutes after one hour of racing, at kilometre41, while back in the main group Juraj Sagan (Bora–Hansgrohe) set the pace for his teammate and yellow jersey Jordi Meeus with the help of DSM.At kilometre68, the riders tackled the short but brutal slope leading to the Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma, perched at the top of the village. Stosz went over the category3 climb in first place despite Lozano putting in a long-range attack in a failed bid to pre-empt the sprint. Now trailing his teammate Paterski by just 2points in the mountains classification, Stosz bade farewell to his four breakaway companions and left them with a margin of 2′25′′.52kilometres into the stage, alarm bells started ringing in the peloton as Israel Start-Up Nation hit the front to form echelons, soon to be joined by Bora–Hansgrohe, Bahrain Victorious and BixeExchange, but the move petered out after a few hundred metres with the main group still intact.
The final intermediate sprint of the day, coming 20kilometres before the line in Oroszlány, sparked a fierce battle among the escapees. Banaszek outsprinted Jarc and Lozano, while Szöllősi was ejected from the back of the group. The leading trio was reeled in too with 10kilometres to go. Yellow jersey JordiMeeus, inexplicably drifting near the back of the peloton at this late time, saw his woes compounded when teammate Rüdiger Selig suffered a puncture.The Belgian started to move up, but it was to no avail, as he got caught up in the mass pile-up that split the peloton on a curve 1.5kilometres from the finish and whittled down the contenders for the stage win to just a dozen. Bahrain Victorious pounced on the opportunity to try and force a split for Fred Wright, but the Englishman faltered as Mike Teunissen (Jumbo–Visma) launched the sprint from afar. The Dutchman seemed to have his first win since the opening stage of the 2019Tour de France in the bag, only to be denied on the line by Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious). The German clawed back one metre ata time before lunging forward at the last possible moment, leaving Teunissen with the impression that he had won the stage. However, the slow-motion replay dispelled any remaining doubts and crowned Bauhaus as the victor 48hours after his first triumph in Kaposvár. He also took back the golden fleece from Meeus ahead of the queen stage of the Tour de Hongrie, which will be decided on the slopes of Kékestető on Saturday.

Jordi Meeus gewinnt die zweite Etappe der Tour de Hongrie im Sprint

Die zweite Etappe der Tour de Hongrie wurde erneut durch eine Ausreisergruppe geprägt, welche einen Vorsprung von maximal 7 Minuten herausfahren konnte. Auf dem regnerischen Abschnitt entlang des Balatons standen zu Beginn des Rennens zwei Bergwertungen auf dem Programm. Wie am Vortag wurden die Ausreißer auch heute vom Hauptfeld kontrolliert und schließlich wenige Kilometer vor dem Ziel eingeholt, sodass es nach 183 Kilometer zum Massensprint kam. Die BORA-hansgrohe Fahrer konnten ihre Stärke perfekt ausspielen und Jordi Meeus in eine ideale Ausgangsposition für den Sprint bringen. Dieser konnte die Vorarbeit der Kollegen mit einem starken Sprint vollenden und den Etappensieg davontragen. Leider waren aber Patrick Gamper und Ben Zwiehoff in Stürze verwickelt. Letzterer befindet sich mit Verdacht auf Schlüsselbeinbruch im Krankenhaus.

Reaktionen im Ziel
„Erstmal sind wir natürlich mit dem Sieg heute super zufrieden. Juraj ist heute den ganzen Tag von vorne gefahren und hat die Spitzengruppe perfekt kontrolliert. Im Finale ist das Team dann einen tollen Sprint gefahren und Jordi hat alles richtig gemacht und daher verdient gewonnen. Leider waren aber Patrick und Ben in Stürze verwickelt und wir müssen sehen, wie es für sie weitergeht. An dieser Stelle gute Besserung!“ – Steffen Radochla, Sportlicher Leiter

„Vielen Dank an das gesamte Team! Die Jungs haben einen tollen Job gemacht und hatten viel Vertrauen in mich. Heute war unser Timing besser als gestern und ich konnte einen nahezu perfekten Sprint fahren. Ich bin super froh, dass ich die Chance genutzt habe und heute gewinnen konnte. Jetzt ist es unser Ziel in den nächsten Tagen noch eine Etappe zu gewinnen.“ – Jordi Meeus

On a momentous day for Hungarian cycling that saw Attila Valter, the reigning champion of his national tour, take over the pink jersey in the Giro d’Italia, Jordi Meeus (Bora–Hansgrohe) scored a double whammy in stage2 of the Tour de Hongrie by claiming the bunch sprint and seizing the yellow jersey in Nagykanizsa.As in the opening stage, the first drops of rain began to fall on the northern shore of Lake Balaton just as the 130-strong peloton took the neutralised start in the lakeside town of Balatonfüred. Following the 7.7km parade, the 183km stage2 of the Tour de Hongrie got under way at the exit from Aszófő, nestled at the foot of the verdant Balaton-felvidék, or Balaton Uplands. The Hungarian national champion, Viktor Filutás(Giotti Victoria–Savini Due), hit the tarmac in the early moments of the stage. The rolling terrain of the first part of the course was perfect for the formation of a strong breakaway, and a seven-man group detached from the peloton shortly before the topof the Balatonszőlős climb, which came after 13kilometres of racing and, at 384metres, was the highest point of the stage.Pole Maciej Paterski (Voster ATS Team) covered for his teammate Patryk Stosz, who started the day in the best climber’s red jersey, and grabbed top points on the category3 climb, ahead of Sergio Román Martín (Caja Rural–Seguros RGA) and another Spaniard, Diego Pablo Sevilla (Eolo–KometaCycling Team), who was in his second breakaway in as many days. Their companions on the road were another Pole, Paweł Bernas (Mazowsze–Serce Polski), Italian Emanuele Onesti (Giotti Victoria–Savini Due), Dane Alexander Kamp (Trek–Segafredo) and Hungarian János Zsombor Pelikán (Androni Giocattoli–Sidermec).The difference surged to 3′45′′ after 25kilometres of racing. The order at the top of the second and final categorised climb of the day, the category3 Vigántpetend, was the same as on the previous ascent, as Paterski outclimbed Martín and Sevilla once more to take over the lead in the mountains classificationfrom his teammate Stosz.Shortly after, their advantage over the peloton peaked at 6′25′′ after covering 42.5km in the first hour of racing, leading a coalition of sprinters‘ teams to contribute one rider each to pacing duties. This cut the difference to5′40′′ near Badacsony, a dormant volcano whose region is known for its dry white wine, and further to 4′10′′ at the halfway point in Tapolca, where Paterski took the first intermediate sprint ahead of Kamp and Pelikán.The gap decreased to just three minutes with 76kilometres to go, near the 13th-century Sümeg Castle, and crashed through the two-minute barrier 55kilometres before the line. Wary of a
premature neutralisation, the peloton eased up a bit and the gap bounced back to 2′30′′ at the second intermediate sprint in Hévíz, where Pelikán beat Paterski and Sevilla for the top spot. 31kilometres before the finish line, as the race went through the Little Balaton, a nature reserve home to over 250species of birds, the peloton spotted its prey again and cut its deficit to just 1′50′′. The third intermediate sprint, taken by Paterski ahead of Bernas in Zalakaros, heralded the disintegration of the escape group, leaving Kamp, Paterski, Bernas and Pelikán alone at the front. The quartet reached the 10km to go mark with a slim 35-second margin. A wave of euphoria swept through the crowd in the finish area and boosted the morale of the breakaway when the speaker announced that local hero and reigning Tour de Hongrie champion Attila Valter had taken pink in the Giro d’Italia. The thought of capping this historic day for his country with a stage win to his name must have surely crossed Pelikán’s mind, but it was not to be. He and his three remaining companions were swallowed up by the peloton with 1.7km to go despite two consecutive crashes in the main group a few seconds earlier.Once again, it all came down to a mass sprint, but unlike yesterday, the final kilometre had an average gradient of 2% that only got worse in the last 200metres. 22-year-old Belgian Jordi Meeus, third in the opening stage, dug deep to beat Italian Alberto Dainese (Team DSM) and yellow jersey Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) by a nose and pick up his maiden win in the colours of Bora–Hansgrohe, which he joined this year. Meeus is also the new overall leader, tied on time with Bauhaus. The rules state that if multiple riders are tied on time andhave the same total of classifications obtained in each stage, as happened today, the lead goes to the top-placed rider in the stage of the day. However, revenge need not be a dish best served cold for Bauhaus, as tomorrow’s stage3 to Tata is also likely to end in a bunch sprint.

Tour de Hongrie: Jordi Meeus sprintet auf’s Podium

Die erste Etappe der Tour de Hongrie 2021 führte über 173 Kilometer von Siófok nach Kaposvár ohne nennenswerte Anstiege. Kurz nach dem Start konnte sich eine Gruppe mit drei Fahrern vom Feld lösen, welche aber durch das Hauptfeld kontrolliert wurde und nur einen geringen Vorsprung herausfahren konnte. Als es auf die letzten Kilometer des Tages ging zeigten sich die BORA-hansgrohe Fahrer im vordersten Teil des Pelotons, um den Sprint vorzubereiten. Durch einen guten Leadout gelang es Jordi Meeus auf den dritten Platz zu sprinten.

Reaktionen im Ziel

„Unser Ziel war es heute eine kleine Gruppe fahren zu lassen und für Jordi den Sprint vorzubereiten. Als sich drei Fahrer am Anfang des Rennens gelöst haben, konnten die Jungs im Hauptfeld ihre Kräfte für das Finale schonen. Auf den letzten Kilometern haben wir einen guten Job gemacht und Rudi ist einen super Leadout gefahren. Leider war Jordi etwas früh dran und wurde so noch von zwei Fahrern übersprintet. Mit dem dritten Platz können wir für den Anfang zufrieden sein und hatten einen guten Start in die Rundfahrt. Dennoch wollen wir morgen unsere Chance für den Etappensieg nutzen.“ – Steffen Radochla, Sportlicher Leiter

„Heute hatten wir eine typische Sprintetappe mit einem sehr schnellen Start und einer kleinen Ausreißergruppe, die vom Peloton kontrolliert wurde. Für uns war es ein Wartespiel bis auf die letzten Kilometer. Das Team hat großartige Arbeit geleistet, um mich in Position zu bringen. Wir sind einen starken Sprint gefahren, auch wenn vielleicht das Timing etwas früh war. Ich bin super zufrieden mit der Leistung des Teams, aber ich glaube, es wäre mehr als ein dritter Platz drin gewesen. Wir sind motiviert und ich möchte es morgen erneut versuchen um den Sieg mitzufahren.“ – Jordi Meeus

The opening stage of the 42ndTour de Hongrie, held today between Siófok and Kaposvár, came down to a bunch sprint in which German rider Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) edged out Italian Jakub Mareczko (Vini Zabù) and Belgian Jordi Meeus (Bora–Hansgrohe) to take his second win of the season and don the first leader’s yellow jersey. 130riders took the start of the 42ndedition of the Tour de Hongrie in Siófok, a spa town on the shores of Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe. The mechanics‘ decision to inflate the tubular tyres of the bicycles somewhat less than usual in response to the ominous skies proved to be a smart move as the first drops started to fall right before the neutralised start of the 173km inaugural stage. The road was already soaked by the time Spaniard Diego Pablo Sevilla (Eolo–Kometa) and Slovenian Aljaž Omrzel (Adria Mobil) formed the first breakaway of the day.However, the duo was reeled in before the first intermediate sprint, 12.6km into the stage, where Edward Theuns (Trek–Segafredo) claimed the three-second time bonus ahead of Taj Jones (Israel Start-Up Nation), who took two seconds, and Alan Banaszek (Mazowsze–Serce Polski), who got one.A three-man group opened up a gap in the approach to Igal, the only categorised climb on today’s menu. It was Diego Pablo Sevilla rolling the dice again, this time with the 20-year-old Belgian track specialist Fabio Van den Bossche (Sport Vlaanderen–Baloise), who featured in an escape in the Tour of Flanders, and Pole Patryk Stosz (Voster ATS Team), the winner of the mountains classification in the 2018Tour de Hongrie. Now riding on dry roads, Stosz was the first rider over the top of the category3 Igal climb, 47.5km into the stage —good enough for the victor of the 2020Tour of Bulgaria to secure the first best climber’s jersey at the end of the opening stage.The gap peaked at 3′30′′ and, despite the high pace (with an average speed of 43.5km/h after two hours of racing), it had dwindled to just 2′16′′ by km90. The N-shaped course headed back to the shores of Lake Balaton for the second intermediate sprint with 71km to go. A voracious Stosz took first place here too, ahead of Sevilla and Van den Bossche. By this point, the teams of sprinters Jakub Mareczko (Vini Zabù) and Mikhel Räim (Mazowsze–Serce Polski) had cut their margin over the peloton to 1′30′′. The Slovakian national champion, Peter Sagan’s brother Juraj (Bora–Hansgrohe), added more fuel to the fire a bit later.
The gap remained stable until 30kilometres before the line, where the escapees had to screech to a halt due to a closed level crossing and lost half of their advantage in the process.In the first passage of the finish line, 17km before the finish, Stosz again let his raw speed do the talking to claim the third and final intermediate sprint ahead of Sevilla and Van den Bossche. The Belgian upped the stakes with a solo attack with 10km to go, while his two fellow breakaways called it a day, but he too was brought back into the fold 7.2km before the finish. A bunch sprint was now inevitable.Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious) came out on top in the mad dash to the line thanks to his ultra-fast sprint and his tactical acumen, biding his time until the final 100metres to protect himself from the slight headwind until the last possible moment. The German, who had already opened his season account in the Tour de la Provence in February, beat Jakub Mareczko (Vini Zabù), the winner of all three flat stages in last year’s Tour de Hongrie, while Belgian Jordi Meeus (Bora–Hansgrohe) took the bottom stepof the podium. Bauhaus also pulled on the first leader’s yellow jersey with four seconds to spare over Mareczko and Stosz, who owes his third place overall to the six bonus seconds gained in the intermediate sprints.

HISTORY
The Tour de Hongrie, launched in Budapest in 1925, has risen time and again from the ashes and is close to fulfilling its creators‘ century-old dream of a race worthy of the popular and athletic success of the Tour de France.
Its first hiatus stretched from 1965 to 1993, when the Hungarian Cycling Federation put the show back on the road. The second iteration of the race lasted until 2009. By that time, it had transcended the borders of its home country to become the Central European Tour. However, local fans stubbornly refused to give up, and their hard work bore fruit in 2015, when the Tour de Hongrie was reborn as a category 2.2 race in which the most promising U23 riders in the world rubbed shoulders with several international teams.
Its promotion to a category 2.2 race by UCI in 2018 enabled it to attract more prestigious teams. The field is now more competitive than ever, including eight WorldTour squads that rank among the strongest in the world, such as Jumbo–Visma, Team DSM and Bora–Hansgrohe.

FAVOURITES
Wearing race number 1, Mike Teunissen (Jumbo–Visma) is billed as one of the major attractions of the Tour de Hongrie. The Dutchman sprinted to victory in the opening stage of the 2019 Tour de France and kept the yellow jersey for two days before surrendering it to future world champion Julian Alaphilippe. Following almost seven months as a result of two back-to-back injuries, the 28-year-old chose the Tour de Hongrie for his return to competition and will be a solid contender for stage wins.
The summit finish on Gyöngyös-Kékestető in stage 4 makes climbers the odds-on favourites to win the final general classification, which places the promising youngster Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain Victorious) among the men to watch. The 21-year-old Colombian finished 18th overall in the Volta a Catalunya and will be able to count on riders of the calibre of grizzled veteran Heinrich Haussler, who won stages in the 2009 Tour de France and 2005 Vuelta a España. Team BikeExchange has several cards to play, including Australian Damien Howson (third in last year’s Tour de Hongrie), young Italian Kevin Colleoni (third in the 2020 Baby Giro) and local lad Barnabás Peák, who finished the 2017 edition as runner-up to another whiz kid, Slovenia’s Tadej Pogačar, then 18 years old, who would go on to win the Tour de France three years later. The 22-year-old will be flying the flag for his country in a bid to succeed fellow Hungarian Attila Valter, who claimed last year’s edition and has since joined the French Groupama–FDJ outfit, with which he is currently taking part in the Giro d’Italia. Belgian Ben Hermans (Israel Start-Up Nation), fourteenth overall in the 2014 Vuelta a España is also worth keeping an eye on.

Some of the world’s top sprinters will also grace the peloton with their presence. Italian Jakub Mareczko (Vini Zabù) grabbed the three flat stages and the final points classification last year. This time, he will be facing stiff competition from German Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious), who won a stage in the Tour de la Provence last February, as well as Frenchman Rudy Barbier (Israel Start-Up Nation), Belgian Timothy Dupont (Bingoal Pauwels Sauces WB), Norwegian Kristoffer Halvorsen (Uno-X Pro Cycling Team), Australian Kaden Groves (Kaden Groves) and Estonian Mihkel Räim (Mazowsze–Serce Polski), the 2016 champion and only former winner on the start list of this year’s Tour de Hongrie, who is in stupendous form after taking the Belgrade–Banja Luka stage race.

Finally, Belgians Edward Theuns (Trek–Segafredo, eighth in the 2017 Paris–Roubaix) and Tom Van Asbroeck (Israel Start-up Nation, nineteenth in the last Tour of Flanders) are capable of pulling out a rabbit out of their hats at any time.

ROUTE
The 42nd Tour de Hongrie will take place from 12 to 16 May 2021. The 132-strong peloton will weave its way around the heart of the Magyar lands in five stages with disparate profiles that will give sprinters, all-rounders and climbers the chance to shine.
It all starts in Siófok, a spa resort wildly popular with tourists. The riders will roll out from the town on the bank of Lake Balaton, the largest body of water in Central Europe, for the 173 km flat opening stage to Kaposvár. Expect pure sprinters to lay down the law here.
Multiple scenarios could unfold in the 183 km long stage 2 —while both categorised climbs lie within 36 km from the start, the course never really flattens out on the road from Balatonfüred to Nagykanizsa, making life extra hard for the peloton if a strong breakaway manages to give it the slip. The sprinters will have their work cut out for them by the jagged terrain of the last 15 km and, especially, the 2% slope of the final 1,000 metres.
A short stage is a hectic stage, and the 142 km course of stage 3 from Veszprém to Tata will keep fans on the edge of their seats. Coming 17 km into the stage, the climb will serve as a great launch pad for breakaways. The wall of Pannonhalma (1.1 km at 9.2%) throws in a nasty kick around the halfway point, but the mostly flat finale could help the peloton to reel in the escapees and set up a bunch sprint.
Stage 4 will be the longest and hardest one of this edition, a 202 km grind to the summit of Gyöngyös-Kékestető, the highest point of Hungary. It will be the eleventh time that the race visits this climber’s paradise. The peloton will first climb the mountain up to Mátraháza at km 124, while the second (and final) ascent will throw in an extra three kilometres at a gradient of over 8%. The Tour de Hongrie is likely to be decided here.
Finally, stage 5 will be held on a circuit in the heart of Budapest, which last hosted the Tour de Hongrie four years ago. There will be eight laps around the streets of the capital, totalling 92 km, before the sprinters fight over the spoils.
