22/5-26/5 Bayern Rundfahrt (cat. 2.HC)

22/5 Stage 1/5. Pfaffenhofen – Mühldorf 194,4 km

Rasmussen: We are here in Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm, for the first stage of Bayern Rundfahrt (Tour of Bavaria). In 2007 Stefan Schumacher won this race riding for Gerolsteiner, now he is here again, trying to do the same for us.

Pfaffenhofen:

Bayern (Bavaria) is the largest German federal state, covering the southeast part of Germany. The name originates from roman ref. to a Celtic tribe called “Boli” living north of Donau (Danube) and later Frank ref. (520) to a Bavarian people.

William IV, Duke of Bavaria from 1508 – 1550:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/DH-Wilhelm_von_Bayern_zpsjxvemu9f.jpg

The first evidence of settlements in the Pfaffenhofen area is from the Bronze Age. It seems that monks from a nearby monastery in Ilmmünster settled the area in the 8th century, their estate’s was called “Pfaffenhöfe” ** (translates into something like Priesthouse), the town itself was first mentioned in 1140.
(** Might be someone able to translate that better?)

Pre-race startegy: With no top sprinter, we would like to get in a break-away; otherwise we hope for a top ten, from one of the sprinters we have got (Furlan/ Hester/Høberg).

Roster:
Angelo Furlan
Anton Grøn
Daniele Aldegheri
Marc Hester
Mitchell Lovelock-Fay
Morten Høberg
Sebastian Balck
Stefan Schumacher

The peloton is very aggressive, many attempts to break do not succeed, but finally after 50 km of hard fighting, a break is allowed to go. There is no especially strong rider in the break.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/1_zpslsuu6rwr.jpg


The Peloton is now slow, most likely marked by the fast pace in the morning; Mitchell Lovelock-Fay use the opportunity to try and get away.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/2_zpsnioddpcg.jpg


With about 70 km left, Mitchell gets in contact with the front group.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/3_zpsrt0nmdym.jpg


But in the meantime the Peloton have accelerated again, and the break gets caught just within 20 km, Høberg takes the wheel Schumacher. Again we are cursed by a crash, Schumacher fall to the ground. Ohh no no that must hurt.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/4_zpswzqbv9da.jpg


The race is won by Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) over Juan José Lobato (Movistar Team), our best was Angelo Furlan (13).

Rasmussen: Schumacher lost 2'59, any chance of a GC position is probably gone. Now I will go talk to him, hopefully he is ok.

Bet Schumacher is feeling a bit sore Pfft
 
OZrocker
Ouch, not a good start at all here Sad
 
AbhishekLFC
Hard luck there. Will be tough getting back the time lost. Makes it easier for Schumacher to get into a breakaway though. That could be worth a shot...
 
Tamijo
sutty68: He must be, won’t be easy to sit on the saddle. pcmdaily.com/images/smiley/pfft.gif

OZrocker: No, won't be easy after this.

AbhishekLFC: Maybe so, depends if he is ok, and if the pro teams will let him go.

22/5-26/5 Bayern Rundfahrt (cat. 2.HC)

23/5 Stage 2/5. Mühldorf - Viechtach 196,1 km


Rasmussen: Schumacher is not looking forward to a long day in the saddle, but he is ok. The stage starts where it ended yesterday, in Mühldorf some 80 km east of München (Munich), by the river Inn. Mühldorf is a town with a population of about 18.500.

Scenic houses in Mühldorf:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/Muhldorf-am-Inn-Symbolbild-_zpst3hwkvfg.jpg

The town was first mentioned in 935, at that time belonging to the Archbishop of Salzburg. Between 1200 and 1300 AD Mühldorf grew into an important trade center, with fortifications and wall’s.

Remains of the city walls:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/Wall%20remains%20Muumlhldorf_zps0putiedp.jpg

Pre-race strategy: This is the hardest stage, with some tough climbs; we will try to attack with anyone who feels ready.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/0_zpsdnpy9v6j.jpg


After some fighting in the morning, eventually Sebastian Balck got away; he was later joined by Yannick Talabardon (Sojasun), Carson Miller (Jamis) and Jiri Hudecek (Bauknecht).

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/3_zpsrj0jhg5o.jpg


We get shorts but heavy showers, coming and going most of the day. The roads are treacherous, and we get some crashes during the stage. Anton Grøn was the first victim, but he gets back to the peloton.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/2_zpsl86v4gvc.jpg


After the top of the 2nd climb, Stefan Schumacher attacks, and over the next couple of hills, he catches up to the front group. Now he can use Sebastian Balck as protection for a while, while he gets his breath back.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/5_zpsfvvzd1jq.jpg


After a while Schumacher needs to speed up to keep the peloton away, one by one the others in the group can’t follow, the last one to give up is Yannick Talabardon.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/6_zpsywocowkp.jpg


Back in the peloton Peter Sagan attacks, speeding downhill to close the gap to Schumacher. With about 5 km left, Sagan has Schumacher in sight.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/7_zps0ctblsp6.jpg


Schumacher is strong enough to hold out and wins a solo victory with 22 sec. down to Sagan. A tough stage, more than 50 riders loses over 10 minutes.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/8_zpsbcwrud6v.jpg


Rasmussen: A brilliant comeback from Stefan, after an ugly day yesterday. 32 years old Stefan Schumacher with this, his first win of the season, shows that he is still one of our stars when it comes to a tough hilly stage.

22/5-26/5 Bayern Rundfahrt (cat. 2.HC)

24/5 Stage 3/5. Viechtach - Kelheim 196,5 km

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/1280px-Viechtach_stadt08_zpsslhfwo04.jpg

Rasmussen: Again the stage starts where it ended yesterday, in the small town of Viechtach, about 185 km northeast of München, some 30 km from the Czech border. A town of about 8000 inhabitants.

Neunussberg castle ruin:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/Burg_Neunuszligberg_2_zpsu0sl3hqg.jpg

Viechtach was first mentioned in 1104, when a Count transfers farmland to Oberalteich monastery. In 1350 a hospital and poorhouse, was build in the town, by a local lord of the nearby Neunussberg castle. The Catholic church St. Augustinus originated from about 1415, but have burned several times, the present church was built in the 1700’s.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/chu_zpsbsxsj4i2.jpg

Pre-race startegy: With a better GC position, we have decided to stay in the peloton, to focus on Stefan Schumacher’s GC.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/0_zpsr8gntfzo.jpg


A strong break is formed today, riders with good hill and fighting ability’s, Alexandre Pliuschin (IAM Cycling), Pieter Serry (Topsport Vlaanderen), Sven Krauss (Brandenburg), Dirk Müller (Nutrixxion) and Sven Forberger (NSP – Ghost).

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/1_zpsmb36zhwp.jpg


The peloton is very fast all day and again we have very bad weather and wet roads. The result is that right from the start riders can’t keep up and lose contact with the peloton.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/2_zpsbukruxbu.jpg


The break-away still has got a good lead on the peloton, getting close to the last hill. Stefan Schumacher attacks.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/3_zpsscgsmjmo.jpg


Stefan Schumacher can’t get away and the break is too strong for the peloton, the race is won by Pieter Serry over Alexandre Pliuschin both from the break. Stefan Schumacher gets in with group Sagan, 1’34 after.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/4_zpsdsp5hova.jpg


Rasmussen: With awful weather and a lot of crashes it was a very hard stage for many riders, Yesterday’s Top 10 GC riders, who was not coming in with the peloton:
Fuglesang (Astana), abandon the race with fractures of the thigh. Daniel Martin (Lampre – Merida) lost 7'23, Rui Costa (Movistar) lost 3’51 , Joris Boillat (IAM Cycling) lost 3’51.

A bad crash near the finish:

22/5-26/5 Bayern Rundfahrt (cat. 2.HC)

25/5 Stage 4/5. ITT Schierling – Schierling 31.2 km

Schierling, with Church of St. Peter and Paul (1723), Tower from about 1420.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/by_zpsufkh7d30.jpg

Rasmussen: The Caravan have moved 25 km south east from Kelheim to Schierling, for an individual time trial. Schierling is a small town of about 7500 inhabitants, 23 km south of Regensburg. The town was first mentioned is 953 as “Markt Schirling”.

Rectory (1729):

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/rectory_zpsekjbz40k.jpg

Pre-race startegy: We hope Schumacher can maintain his GC, he is within the top 10 favorites on the stage.

Profile:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/0_zpsbl6qyceb.jpg


The stage winner was Rein Taaramäe (Cofidis, Solutions Crédits) 5 sec. better than Rui Costa (Movistar Team), Stefan Schumacher took the last spot on the podium ’47 after Taaramäe, a surprisingly great result for us.

Stefan Schumacher on the route:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/1_zpsh2iwbxq8.jpg

Peter Sagan came in as 6th. maybe I little disappointing for Cannondale, but enough to maintain his overall lead. Today’s big loser was Yannick Talabardon (Sojasun), he lost 3'16, falling from 2nd to 9th in the GC.

Schumacher and Costa's positions are yo-yo-ing. First one is ahead, then the other, then back Pfft
 
Tamijo
sutty68: He is in prime shape, and it pays out. but we havent got many races in the comming weeks. June will be a bit quiet for us.

AbhishekLFC: GC is very tight from 2-5, just hope we can hold a spot on the podium.

22/5-26/5 Bayern Rundfahrt (cat. 2.HC)

26/5 Stage 5/5. Kelheim 178,7 km

After Yesterday’s ITT in Schierling, we are back in Kelheim, for the last stage of Bayern Rundfahrt.

Kelheim:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/historische%20Altstadt%20Kelheim_zpseuczenqu.jpg

Kelheim is a town of about 16.000 people, beautifully situated where the rivers Altmühl and Donau (Danube) connects. The peninsula between the rivers, has been inhabited since 13,000 BCE, and was the site of the Celt city Alcimoennis founded around 500 BCE.

Weltenburg Abbey, founded approx. 620, Weltenburg Abbey brewery is one of the oldest monastery brewerys, operation since 1050:

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/Kloster_zpsevljheye.jpg

Pre-race startegy: We plan to stay in the peloton, as long as no GC contenders attack.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/0_zpsrnm0mcmq.jpg


A break-away of 7 riders gets away, the peloton takes it easy, and they get 7’10 when they pass over the last clims, with 110 km to go.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/1_zpsiwhnkgzg.jpg


When the peloton gets to the climb they speed up, the climb is very steep, and the peloton breaks over. Now a group of 21 riders are between the peloton and the front. Most of the favorites including Peter Sagan, Rui Costa and Stefan Schumacher are in the 2nd group.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/2_zpso8onnlop.jpg


But no one wants to waste too much energy in the favorite group, and they melts together with the peloton again, now the pace is high and the gap to the front group is getting smaller and smaller.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/3_zpsm9utfbl2.jpg


In front Jelle Wallays (Topsport Vlaanderen) attacks from the break-away, with about 10 km left, he gets a gap to the others in the break.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/4_zpsu3tvu1xn.jpg


Jelle Wallays wins the race in the same time as the peloton, 5 of the riders from the break, finish the stage in top 10.

i358.photobucket.com/albums/oo24/jonta3/5_zpsgkif2rbi.jpg

Rasmussen: Very good GC result from Schumacher, management is very pleased.
