Cant be too upset with 11th at RvV. 7th at Basque Country isn't bad either. Some big names ahead (apart from the Hungarian) and the gaps look huge. Usually when I race it the gaps are quite small for some reason.

I think stage 2's profile might be wrong. Smile

Wow, the Basque Tour was brutal. No chance in hell to compete with the Yates twins and Alaphilippe.


Fixed the stage 2 profile Smile.

Eleventh was definitely the best result possible and one we should be very happy with, seeing how I have never managed to finish higher than 10th in all these years. And Cortes doesn't have the stats Lature had when he came in 10th. Hopefully we will manage to resign Cerezo and him in July.

On Itzulia: the top tier climbers and punchers are just too unevenly spread over the different teams, allowing the strong ones to lit up the races whenever and wherever they see fit. Bad legs on day one just ruined Verona's top 5 ambitions...

Kenyeres could already be a bigger name if he rode for a different team btw. With maxed out stats he could be like Alaphilippe with a less fierce acceleration.

FYI: see total number of wages in the spoiler below. I also just saw I totally messed up the AI teams in terms of the number of riders they have. Rolling Eyes

Many dreamed of more today due to the absence of Lutsenko and Benoot - the two latest winners - and with the world's best cobbler Senechal coming back from injury.

Our AndrĂłnico Mendigain joined the break of the day and was the first come out of the Forest of Arenberg. At that point only a few domestiques, including a certain Croatian champion, had been dropped from the bunch. Some of the favourites though, like Kristoff and Demare, had been involved in a crash earlier.

Sadly from there, all cameras went dark. We learned through the race radio that the break was caught with around 55 kilometers to go. Cerezo and Cortes were still racing with the front group.

Deceuninck kept setting the pace afterwards and saw team leader Senechal attack three times on a longer asphalt stretch. The group was thinned but no rider got away there.

Spengler played his card on Carrefour de l'Arbre, towing along Senechal and Geraint Thomas. Cortes and Cerezo were happy to see how a very strong Sport Vlaanderen team closed the gap.

Senechal used a brief moment of hesitation close to the velodrome to get away from the rest and secure his biggest win so far on his first race day in weeks. The ecstatic French saw Van Keirsbulck and Sagan round out the podium. Cortes didn't have the legs to keep up near the end, Cerezo came 13th in the sprint of the chasing group.

Part of the Roubaix squad stayed in France a final race before taking some time off. They travelled to Brittany, the westernmost region of the French mainland.

Bilbao tried to reel in the escapees on the final lap but saw his attack countered by Suaza and Calmejane. They passed and dropped him and the breakaway riders to sprint for the win.

It was a pretty dull race until we tried to stir things up on the infamous, steep Keutenberg, about 70 kilometers from the line. A group with contenders such as MĂŒhlberger, van der Poel, M.A. LĂłpez was distanced due to the high pace set by Sagasta.

i.imgur.com/uIIYmwW.png

The breakaway's lead kept shrinking on the local Cauberg circuit until Raul Carretto was the last to crack on the final lap. Verona paid for an earlier acceleration when he only just failed follow a new lead group with Alaphilippe, TDU winner Galtier, Arredondo and Adam Yates.

i.imgur.com/kqa2vym.png

Yates cracked on the final Cauberg ascent but the other three could sprint for the win. Alaphilippe won a close sprint to add a fourth victory to his Gold Race tally.

Verona, Ochoa and Mendigain all finished in the fourth group but only the former made the top 10.

This year's edition had an interesting route with several cimbs inside the last ten kilometers. Vanbilsen left the other three breakaway riders behind with around 20 kilometers to go.

i.imgur.com/DGPij8q.png

Once Vanbilsen had been caught, the stronger teams tried to decimate the pack. As a result, the front riders hit the final Mûr de Huy ascent with a gap between each of them: Van Gestel first, Adam Yates next, van der Poel and Alaphilippe still ahead of Verona and the bunch.

i.imgur.com/nfeKc3H.png

Van Gestel maintained a more than steady pace, forcing Adam Yates to dig deep in order to bridge. After he had, Van Gestel kicked away again to win the race. Adam saw his brother complete the podium whereas Verona crossed the line in 6th.

A still large pack at the foot of La Redoute, a slightly less vast one at the foot of La RĂŽche aux Faucons. Before that team leaders Verona and Ochoa had both suffered a crash. Only the Spaniard made the cut and hit the Faucons climb with the first group of 17.

i.imgur.com/Ag0FpvA.png

It didn't come as a surprise that the group was ripped apart on Faucons. Alaphilippe reduced the leading group from six to three himself on the CĂŽte de Saint-Nicolas. Van Gestel and Adam Yates had to give their absolute best just to keep up but they did.

Behind them a gap of minutes was opened up. The group with Verona swept up Calmejane and Galtier in the battle for seventh.

i.imgur.com/WsPAuDK.png

Alaphilippe's companions were too cooked to even stand on the pedals in the final sprint and definitely wouldn't keep the latest Lombardia victor from winning his second Monument.

smartly sat up in the descent before the final climb and managed to win the sprint for the 7th place.

Guerreiro followed an attack on the last climb but things calmed down after his group was caught. At least until Izagirre tore the reduced pack apart, allowing Ochoa to win the third stage. That is three WT stage wins with us now for him. This must be a big boost after a long injury that cost him several months.

Caicedo joined a breakaway of 13 and took it easy on the first climb. Winning the two next cat.1 sprints made him take the lead in the mountain classification.

Simon Yates caught up swiftly on the ultimate climb and would go on to bag the stage win by a huge gap. Guerreiro managed to shake everyone near the top and moved to GC 2nd.

Eschborn-Frankfurt was raced for the first time in a couple years. Its comeback edition even made the final list of World Tour events. It didn't really make for an exciting race though and everythign would come down to a mass sprint in the streets of Frankfurt. Cerezo led Barbero to the very front of the pack.

Our team captain looked like he wouldn't have much left for the actual sprint and that also turned out to be the truth. While he was happy to make the top 10, it was almost-home rider Marco König who won after a very close sprint.

Thank you, honestly can't recall the last time one of my riders started as a top favourite!

The route looks almost tailor-made with the time trialing being so important. Those able to outclimb him aren't even close to his time trial abilities, especially Landa (who's podiumed in the last four editions without winning the GC), Kudus and Aru. Curious to see how Bahrain will handle thing with both Formolo and Landa in the lineup.

As was too be expected with the lineup we sent to Sicily for La Grande Partenza, our team finished about halfway in the stage top ten. Qhubeka ASSOS lived up to its status as top favourites and saw Gerai Flower move into the maglia rosa. Team leader Merhawi Kudus gained around a minute on Aru, Formolo and Landa.

Things almost split on the seemingly meaningless climb close to the line but the group with Ruben couldn't stay clear. Martinez failed to keep Bonifazio's wheel and probably wouldn't have beaten him in the sprint anyway judging by the gap. Boris Vallée crossed the line in seventh spot and took Gerai Flower's pink jersey.

A test in the mountains awaited the pack after a short transfer to the mainland. Landa and Aru saw their long range attack strand yet the former seemed swift to follow Dunbar on Spezzano della Silla.

Over the top, however, Landa wasn't part of a 9-man group of mostly outsiders for the GC and neither were Aru and Guerreiro. On this rough day, Ruben could not be more relieved crossing the line with the second group. Latour sprinted to his first WT win and did so minutes ahead of Aru, the main loser of the third day. Qhubeka kept the pink jersey, now on the shoulders of designated leader Kudus.

Stage four didn't appear as tough on paper yet surely damage could be dealt on the double ascent of Muro di Grassano.

Fabio Aru felt like setting things straight after yesterday's disaster and dropped everyone including Guerreiro, who was the only one that almost followed. Our leader kept his focus and rode up the last climb like a madman with just Morton with him. Not enough to catch Aru but Ruben surely made a giant leap GC-wise. He breached the GC top five and saw Robert Power grab the pink jersey for now.

Very odd first week indeed with few time to warm up the engines. I agree Guerreiro did well by taking back most of the time he lost on day three already.

Next stages will be up soon!

A breakaway group of four remained at large until after the only difficulty of the day, Monte Taburno. The pack gave the many sprinters and GC 9th Contreras a scare by climbing unexpectedly fast, but eventually they all came back together.

The moment at which the four were caught caused a short hesitation. ChĂĄvarri, Izagirre and Caicedo set up a train for Martinez and noticed that most of the sprinters were tired or sat too far back. They kept expecting another sprint train to catch up and swamp them. It wouldn't happen, and Manuel wrote history for Uruguay as a cycling nation by landing this milestone stage win.

Cobblestones are a rare sight in Giro stages, and in hindsight they could've been left out this year too. The GC contenders' teams weren't looking to take any risk as Mats Boeve beat fellow Dutchman Wesley Kreder to win the stage from the breakaway.

The peloton let a big breakaway go on the Blockhaus. More than 10 riders could only watch how Hillen rode away on the climb and secured back to back stage wins for Jumbo - Visma.

Many GC men didn't seem to have much left after seven long days so far but not so for Formolo, who only saw teammate Landa catch up after his acceleration. Aru did best to finish 1'45" behind them, Ruben and Kudus finished two minutes behind. Power lost about six mins to them and had Formolo take his pink jersey.

Last up before the first rest day was the first of three individual time trials. Van Gompel rode the race of his life to beat riders like Cameron Meyer, Campenaerts and Mullen.

Ruben needs a bumpier course to thrive but still had a decent time at the line. Among GC riders, just maglia rosa Formolo and Latour were faster, making for a very close overall. Nine days in, Formolo looks quite good to succeed himself as Giro d'Italia winner.

Congrats to Manuel Martinez on the stage win! Ruben outclassed by the Bahraini duo on the Blockhaus, though. Right now it seems that defending the spot on the podium will be tough enough. But we've still got a long way to go.
