Dominik Nerz: Germany's stage racing hope (Ended, next season in PCM 2011)
roturn
11th is pretty good. Even if the field is not that strong. (3 Tabriz in top 10)
Also nice double.

@ johannes-w: Thanks! Yes, I'm pretty glad about that, too Smile

@ Roturn & tmoha: Thank you. Of course, the field isn't that strong^^ That's why I chose this race.

@ FreitasPCM: Yep, it's by far the best result for Dominik so far.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Flags/si.gif 2.1: Tour de Slovenie – Stage 2


Today's stage is a lot shorter and easier than the one yesterday. It looks like a good stage for a breakaway.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/2F-3.jpg

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/2P-9.jpg

Km 2: Lars Weckernagel (Nutrixxion) launches the first attack. Timothy Duggan tries to follow.

Km 20: Duggan failed to get into the break, so Longo Borghini gives it a try.

Km 35: While Longo Borghini still tries to stay free, Duggan obviously overestimated himself and falls back from the peloton. That'll be a tough stage for him.

Km 52: It turns out quite good for Liquigas now: Duggan recontacts with the pack and Longo Borghini managed to get into the 14 men group of the day!

Km 60: Although NetApp and ISD Continental do the pace in the pack, the advance grows over three minutes.

Km 67: Giovanni Visconti (Farnese Vini) attacks from the pack. He would be a good bet for the stage win!

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/21-9.jpg
Km 79: Over the first mountain, Visconti reaches the break, who lead with 5 minutes now. He is also the best-placed rider, 8 minutes back in the GC.

Km 86: With 60km to go, the advance for the escapees is still at more than seven minutes. They could succeed.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/22-8.jpg
Km 99: Trabriz, who showed a strong performance yesterday, increase the pace now and the advance decreases!

Km 127: The break has only 21 km to go, and the pack is still down by 5'30. They will fight for the win, and Giovanni Visconti is the big favorite.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/23-8.jpg
Km 142: Wih 6 km to go, Simone Campagnaro (Miche) attacks from the first group. Paolo Longo Borghini counters.

Km 143: Without Liquigas noticing, a group around yesterday's third Rubiano got loose from the pack! Liquigas has to do the pace now!

Km 146: Longo Borghini is half a minute in front now. That looks good for him now.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/24-8.jpg
Km 142: Change of tactics: Instead of chasing, the Liquigas team attacks now!

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/25-7.jpg
Km 148: Longo Borghini wins!

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/26-6.jpg
Km 148: Nerz sprints along with Basso to minimize the time loss. Nevertheless, they'll lose the leader's jersey today.

What an incredible season for the old Italian. Already his fourth victory!

Dominik's Comment:

An ambivalent day for us. Of course, we achieved another stage win, which is great. But we also lost the overall lead due to our inattentiveness. We could prevent the worst with our late team attack, but still we lost nearly a minute. On the other hand: If he really aims for it (which he will), 47 seconds on someone like Rubiano should be more than manageable for Ivan the Terrible!

For me, I hope that I can get into the Top Ten tomorrow. That would be really great.

So far,
Dominik

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Flags/si.gif 2.1: Tour de Slovenie – Stage 3


The third stage will decide the GC, as the fourth stage is completely flat. Rubiano seeks to defend his overall lead, which will be a hard job, as Basso will do everything to regain the lead. For Dominik, we hope that he can get into the Top 10.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/3F-4.jpg

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/3P-9.jpg

Km 4: The first attacks are launched...

Km 19: Eleven men establish the BotD.

Km 33: Another couple of riders try to bridge up to the break.

Km 51: The enlargement of the break caused the pack to chase, so again, everything is back together.

Km 53: Timothy Duggan tries it again. Will he have more luck than yesterday?

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/31-7.jpg
Km 68: Yes. He takes part in the seven men break, who have more than three minutes of advance now.

Km 99: The pack is down by 6'45 now.

Km 150: On the bottom of the final climb, only 4'30 are left of the old advance.

Km 160: Belotti again increases the pace in the pack.

Km 166: While it's Szmyd now in front of the peloton, Bartosz Huzarski tries to attack.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/33-7.jpg
Km 173: Szmyd pretty much destroys the pack, only 15 riders are left in the group of Basso.

Km 174: Following Rubiano, Basso attacks now!

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/34-6.jpg
Km 174: Nerz, accompanied by Francesco Belotti, fell behind a little. He hasn't his best day.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/35-5.jpg
Km 177: Basso catches up with the leader, Tomasz Nose. Rubiano is half a minute behind. Basso has to hurry up! 2 km to go.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/36-3.jpg
Km 179: Basso wins the stage easily. Now, it's time to wait for Rubiano's time...

Km 179: And it's enough! Rubiano loses about a minute.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/37-3.jpg
Km 179: Nerz, in his young riders jersey, comes in 10th. He moves into nineth overall!

His win wasn't surprising, nevertheless it was a good one!

Dominik's Comment:

Yeah! We achieved all our goals! Basso won the stage and regained the overall lead, I kept my young riders jersey and moved into the Top 10 – What could you want more?

I'm so happy that our DS put this race into our schedule. The results are great for the team's atmosphere.

Tomorrow, Jacopo Guarnieri, who suffered all the way on the last stages, will get his chance in the mass sprint.

See you,
Dominik

Banana for this one! Nice win for Basso and even better Top-10 for Dominik! I was a little bit afraid, when you said "Dominik hasn't his best day", but in the end, he managed to achieve a great result. Well done!
 
johannes-w
very nice that dominik made it into the top 10 - congrats Banana (i think its my first banana everWink )

ps. you could have shown the top 3 of the young riders classification though
 
cunego59
@ tsmoha: Thanks Smile At a certain point, Dominik didn't look good, and I was a little afraid as well^^ But He constantly rode at his pace and was able to overtake some riders who went too fast on the first part of the climb. And yeah, eventually, his result was pretty good.

@ johannes-w: I feel honoured that you dedicated your first banana to this story Grin And you're right about the young riders classification. Luckily, I still had the exported results, so I edited them into the posts.

Dominik's Comment:

Although this stage wasn't really like we would have liked it to be, the atmosphere in the team bus was really happy. We totally dominated this tour with three stage wins and all jerseys.

The DS just called me to congratulate me to my young riders jersey. They're really pleased with me. And so am I. This Tour de Slovenie was a great experience.

Now, the national championships can come!
Yours,
Dominik

June 20, 2011

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Flags/ch.gif 2.PT – Tour de Suisse

The Tour de Suisse is the other large preparation race for the Tour de France. Strangely, Andy Schleck was missing here as well. Alberto Contador was the big favorite. Liquigas came here with a sprinter-orientated team, but couldn't get any good results.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Suisse.jpg

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/PT_TdS1.jpg

The prologue was won by Alberto Contador. Ignatas Konovalovas and Samuel Sanchez followed. Kristjan Koren and Maciej Bodnar got a decent result with the places 14 and 15.

Stage two came up with a little surprise, as even the pure sprinters survived the mountain. Mark Cavendish won in front of Tyler Farrar and his lead out Matthew Goss.

The stage three was what it was expected to be: A mass sprint finish with a favorite's win. Mark Cavendish again in front of Tyler Farrar and Gregory Rast.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/PT_TdS2.jpg

Mark Cavendish repeated his win on stage four, again in front of Tyler Farrar. This time, Heinrich Haussler completed the podium. I think, we can expect a lot of nice battles in the Tour de France.

The sprints weren't very rich of variety at all: Another stage, the same result. Cavendish beating Farrar, Haussler finishing third. Farrar had to be pretty frustrated by now.

Stage six was the only real mountain stage of this tour. Alberto Contador took the win 8 seconds in front of Denis Menchov. Roman Kreuziger finishes third.

Those sprinters have to be in a great shape if even those hills can't stop them: Mark Cavendish is really impressive and again beats Tyler Farrar. This time, Andre Greipel is on three.

A breakaway succeeded on stage eight: Stuart O'Grady (Leopard) won in front of Martin Kohler (BMC) and Rinaldo Nocentini (Ag2r).

Fabian Cancellara proved his great shape and won the concluding time trial six seconds in front of Christian Vande Velde and the overall winner Alberto Contador.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Flags/de.gif NC – Deutsche Meisterschaften - Zeitfahren


Today is the day of the German national time trial championship. Dominik has no chance of a really good result, a Top 10 would be outstanding. Maybe his quite good shape can help him against usually better time trialists.

The favorites are Tony Martin and Bert Grabsch (both HTC), as Andreas Klöden (RadioShack) surprisingly doesn't take part.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/F-5.jpg

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/P-6.jpg

13:00: Fabian Wegmann (Leopard) opens the race.

13:41: Young Patrick Gretsch (HTC) sets a first good time at the intermediate checkpoint.

13:54: Both Markus Fothen (Team NSP) and Linus Gerdemann (Leopard) lowered Gretsch's time at the checkpoint.

13:57: Roger Kluge (Skil) is the first rider to set a final time:
57'18

14:11: Gretsch comes in. A good time.
56'01

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/1-11.jpg
14:15: Dominik is about to start now!

14:22: Markus Fothen, U23 world champion of 2003, sets a new best time:
55'38

14:25: But quickly, the time is lowered by Linus Gerdemann.
55'23

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/2-9.jpg
14:39: Bert Grabsch is on his way! On the checkpoint, he loweres Gerdemann's time by 15 seconds.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/3-9.jpg
14:42 Dominik passes the intermediate check, 14th, + 1'07.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/4-9.jpg
14:47: Tony Martin starts his quest to defend his title.

14:56: Former German time trial champion Sebastian Lang (Omega Pharma) has nothing to do with the decision.
56'50

15:09: Bert Grabsch sets the new best time, 39 seconds in front of Gerdemann. Looks beatable for Tony Martin.
54'43

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/5-8.jpg
15:12: Dominik gives everything he has on the last meters. He finishes provisional 16th, 2'37 behind Grabsch.
57'20

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/6-9.jpg
15:13: Tony Martin passes the intermediate checkpoint with a clear new best time, 30 seconds faster than Grabsch.

15:20: With Alexander Gottfried (NetApp), the last rider starts the race.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/7-8.jpg
15:22: An impressive image. Tony Martin overtakes Paul Martens (Rabobank), who overtakes Gerald Ciolek (Quick·Step). At this point, no one doubts that Martin defends the title.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/8-7.jpg
15:40: With Andre Greipel (Omega Pharma), Tony Martin nearly overtook his third rider. He wins this championship easily, more than a minute in front of his team mate.
53'38

He will wear this jersey for one more season: Tony Martin.

Dominik's Comment:

What can I say? I didn't do anything extraordinary but I finished within my possibilities. A Top 20 place is quite ok.

Maybe I can do a little surprise on the road race tomorrow.

See you,
Dominik

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Flags/de.gif NC – Deutsche Meisterschaften


After the time trial, HTC want their next win. Andreas Klöden is again not present, the same applies for the defending champion Christian Knees (Sky).

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/F-6.jpg

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/P-7.jpg

Km 23: It took a long time, but now, the first attacks come. Knowing it is his only chance, Dominik follows.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/1-12.jpg
Km 40: As the group is in danger of being caught, Nerz tries it again.

Km 51: It seems like the group of the day is fix now: Nerz is accompanied by Marcel Sieberg (Omega), Florian Harbig (Thüringer Energie), Stefan Schäfer (Brandenburg) and Dirk Finders (Eddy Merckx).

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/2-10.jpg
Km 84: The advance grew to more than five minutes now. But the finish is still far away. Dominik can be considered as the best hilly rider in the group, while Marcel Sieberg is definetely the best sprinter.

Km 118: 7 minutes seem to be enough, Leopard and Team NSP increase the pace now.

Km 127: Bert Grabsch attacks from the pack.

Km 136: Grabsch and his fellow escapees are caught again.

Km 139: The advance quickly decreased to 3 minutes. Doesn't look good for Dominik.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/3-10.jpg
Km 168: With the advance being only 1'30, Dominik tries it again with an attack!

Km 170: He quickly creates a gap of thirty seconds.

Km 187: The other escapees are caught, while Dominik maintains a gap of about a minute.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/4-10.jpg
Km 198: He did a great job, but now, his adventure is over. Dominik is back in the pack. It's now time for the real favorites.

Km 201: And there they are. At least one of them. Paul Martens attacks.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/5-9.jpg
Km 204: Although there are still 40 km left, Tony Martin sets an attack. He overtakes Martens quickly.

Km 217: A group of 12 riders leads now. Except for Jens Voigt (Leopard), all major favorites are present there.

Km 223: Paul Martens is the most aggressive rider today. Again, he attacks.

Km 231: Again, the large group is back together.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/6-10.jpg
Km 240: Those 12 riders enter the last, descending 5 km together. A couple of good sprinters are present there, but it will probably be decisive who has the most power left.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/7-9.jpg
Km 244: The sprint begins, and Linus Gerdemann leads, followed by Patrick Gretsch, Tony Martin (both HTC) and Patrick Sinkiewitz (Farnese Vini).

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/8-8.jpg
Km 245: Tony Martin makes it a double victory at the national championships.

Km 245: After his efforts, Dominik finishes within the pack.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/mt.jpg
After this great win, Tony Martin will wear the national champion's jersey in every race.

Dominik's Comment:

Not much to say. I did the best I could, and tried it in the break, but the other guys weren't really helpful.

But anyways, I didn't expect anything here, so it's ok.

Interesting was that two free agents could win the national titles. They commended themselves for a new contract.

Also, we had five double champions. The most successful team was RadioShack with 5 titles. Our team failed to achieve even a single win.

Tomorrow, the contract negotiations officially begin, and I will provide you with the information you need – but probably not before the end of July, as I'll be riding at the Tour, of course!

See you,
Dominik

Race Results



July 1, 2011

Monthly Summary: June


Again, here is a monthly summary. These are the results of the races in June:

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Jun_Ergeb.jpg


i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Jun_Pro.jpg

Thanks to Basso's result in the Dauphiné, our team advanced one place and sits now in third position in the ProTour ranking. Except for that, few things have changed.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Jun_Conti.jpg

Skil – Shimano and Landbouwkrediet extended their lead in the Continental Ranking. Bert De Waele is now Van Hummels closest follower, after winning the Ster Elektrotoer.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Jun_CQ.jpg

Not much changes in the CQ Ranking either. Rabobank overtook Leopard, but they're still very close. Due to his win in the Tour de Suisse, Alberto Contador firstly appears in this ranking.

The UCI recently announced that the CQ Ranking will be the main criterion for the promotion to the new WorldTour. So here are the Top 5 continental teams in the CQ Ranking:

Landbouwkrediet3373 Points
Cofidis, le crédit en ligne3242 Points
FDJ3167 Points
Skil – Shimano2770 Points
Saur – Sojasun2211 Points


As you can see, Saur is already quite a bit away from the Top 2, so it probably will be a fight between the leading four teams.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Jun_Siege.jpg

With 2 wins, Kenny Van Hummel advanced into second position in this ranking. Cofidis still has the second most wins, now in front of Landbouwkrediet.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/Jun_Ausz.jpg

Mark Cavendish won five stages of the Tour de Suisse and the British Championships. A more than deserved winner. After January, this is already his second award! Jakub Danacik won one stage of the Ringerike GP.

Dominik's Blog



July 2, 2011

Hey folks,

Our intense training and the preparation races had quite a lot of impact on me. Right on time for the Tour, I feel that I have made another leap regarding my abilities.

i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd464/cunego59/StatsJuli2011.jpg


I'm already in our camp in Rotterdam where the Tour starts tomorrow, and I have to say that I'm pretty excited. I hope that I can do a good job here.

So far,
Dominik
 
laidbackmarc
Great Tour of Slovenie for Nerz! Looking forward to the Tour... Nerz won't have chances but I think he will be able to help Basso with his development during this season and his great shape. However, his work can be important as Basso aims at the Podium?
