Viana do Castelo

Hi again, thanks for tuning in. It’s time for Viana do Castelo, the race. 206km await us so we better get cracking.

We see almost no people on the streets which will make the city council proud after the covid-motivated recommendation of domiciliary confinement

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Brkic, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ssr.png Veber pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gsc.png Page get themselves up the road in lap 1.


The peloton gives them about 3min of leeway.

With 115km to go a number of teams decide to send their men to the front as well. A 12 men group is formed behind the leading trio with
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Bolivar
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Kumara
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Rowe
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png De Vreese
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Bovenhuis
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/trg.png Smirnovs
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/esc.png Hugentobler
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Skala
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Paprstka
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/sva.png Oelerich


They quickly gain a minute on the pack. Quite a dangerous group with some prominent riders being given carte blanche so early in the race.

However the climb to Santa Luzia proves to be too hard for most in that group as only pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/trg.png Smirnovs and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/esc.png Hugentobler manage to stay clear and catch the early trio.


We thus have a six men group at the front with a 3min lead, with half the race to go.

More attacks come in lap no. 4 with some familiar names harrassing the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Podium Ambition lead peloton.
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png De Vreese, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Paprstka, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Bovenhuis and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Rowe get themselves up chasing the front six, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard sees himself alone in pursuit of them.


Not for long though. The flurry of attacks just doesn’t want to give this reporter a chance of having a sip of his cup of tea. This time it’s pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Kumara, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Bolivar and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/sva.png Oelerich firing their engines off the pack.

The first two manage to claw themselves up to E2, while the others will continue their journey in no-man’s land.


We start climbing the Santa Luzia ascent for the 4th time with a 1min gap between the front groups and another minute between E2 and the pack, who has swallowed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/sva.png Oelerich and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard in the meantime.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png De Vreese and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Bovenhuis surprisingly struggle with the pace though and get caught.


As does everyone in that group except pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Bolivar and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Paprstka.

In fact pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Fablok seems to have been pushing the envelope in this ascent thining the main group quite drastically. It’s hard to make an acessment right now but we’ll try to locate who’s made the split at the bottom


Before we can make a sound evaluation, the broadcaster gives us a glimpse to the back of the group where news of a major blowout have emerged!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/sva.png Van Avermaet has hit the wall! Awful news for his team who were counting on him to deliver today.

Already we can see Oss and Kluge waiting for him. Some men in Orange were seen much higher in the group, could Strava still count on them for this event?

It’s a 39-men group which manages to survive the early troubles of lap no. 5 and claws back the two chasers, trailing the front 6-men group by just 1’20. In here are:
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Noppe, Plucinski, Benoot, Bostner, De Witte
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lph.png Coronel, Baugnies, Ruiz
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Bridges, Cataford, Owen, Altur, Matthews
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gsc.png Taubel
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/and.png Ropero, Vanspeybrouck
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Stannard, Debesay, Bester, Novardianto, Schreurs
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam, Eislers
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Tsatevich, Nolf, Skala, Sanikwathi
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bsb.png Schoonbroodt, Rutsch, El Sabbahi, Naesen, Okbamariam
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Van Keirsbulck


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Van Lerberghe, Parpstka, Boev, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Bolivar, Gamper and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gsc.png Hagen are just about to lose contact with the rest.

As do Ruiz, Bostner, El Sabbahi, Cataford, Matthews, Skala, Schreurs, Rutsch and Sanikwathi at the end of the next cobbled stretch.

The first conclusion is there are no Orange jerseys around. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/sva.png Strava has no man in this group, which, by the look of things seems to be the deciding event of the race. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/phi.png Philips seems to be out of contention as well after having spent Bovenhuis in a futile early attack.

50km to go

The main group tackles the climb with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Plucinski at the front working to get rid of the lessser climbers in this group.


At the front, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse does his best to try and resist this effort. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ssr.png Veber and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gsc.png Page just can’t follow this pace and are caught in the first slopes.

The main group also loses elements: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/and.png Ropero, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gsc.png Taubel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Bridges are the first to drop.

And then, the legendary pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lph.png Baugnies loses contact as well!


A surprise early drop from the Belgian who immedialty sees his loyal lieutenant Coronel helping him. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bsb.png Naesen also loses touch, but unlike Los Pollos Hermanos, Bralirwa decides to keep Schoonbroodt with the best.

A different story is unravelling at the front with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse using his superior climbing skills to good use and distancing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Brkic, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/trg.png Smirnovs and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/esc.png Hugentobler.


Behind, more Belgains see their dreams shattered! Namely, reigning champion, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Van Keirsbulck, plus Noppe, Kobmariam, Veber and Owen.

As we end the penultimate descent to Viana, we can reaccess the damage:
E1: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse
+ 42’’
E2: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/trg.png Smirnovs, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Brkic, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/esc.png Hugentobler
+ 41’’
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/and.png Vanspeybrouck, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Debesay, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Altur, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Tsatevich, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bsb.png Schoonbroodt, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Nolf, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Bester, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Novardianto, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Plucinski


The last 3 men are dropped eventually, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot tries to use every bump in the road to get his rivals on the ropes. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Nolf is the one suffering the most but manages to just stay in contention.

Not seeing any fruits from this effort, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot relents the lead of the group. 29km to go in this final lap.


Gaps are +26’’ and +46’’.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse continues his wonderful ride refusing to let go of the gap he’s achieved, while his chasers suffer with every inclination the road throws at them.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/esc.png Hugentobler sees this small hill pushing him back to the main group, while on the other end pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Xero sees Novardianto and Bester reenter. What a race it has been for them so far!

23km to go. 2 pavé sectors before the main climb only yet to be tackled

But wait there’s action at the top of this little hill. It’s pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot at it again!


He manages to catch the two chasers rather easily and powers off in the descent!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Bester is the one who reacts in the main group pushing the pace trying to keep his team mate up the road isolated.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Debesay picks off chasing duties from his mate on the cobbled sector, but all he manages to do is catch the remaining early escapees.


A ferocious pursuit ensues in the streets of Viana. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot is going as strong as you’d expect him to be and is quickly approaching his countryman. However in the main group the gap has widened to 40’’ already.


The junction happens at the foot of the climb with 15km to the line. Just in time for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot to put the hammer down on the penultimate pavé sector. They have 48’’ on their chasers.


Speaking of chasers it is now pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bsb.png Schoonbroodt who commands the rythmn behind.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/esc.png Hungetobler has lost contact at his point as also pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Bester and Novardianto.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bsb.png Schoonbroodt though doesn’t want to burn himself for his rivals and gives up the chase. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Debesay takes advantage of this lull and takes the elm allowing the gap to grow to 1 min!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Brkic and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/trg.png Smirnovs though get dropped after a brilliant escapade. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Nolf soon gives in and suffers the same fate.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot is the one pulling the whole climb with his companion just trying to hold on. With 10km to go and in the toughest slopes we finally see a reaction behind. It’s pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam trying to bridge the gap. Does he have enough in the tank?


We finally crest the climb, with the sanctuary on everyone’s sight. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Altur loses some ground at this point, while up ahead pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam trails by just 26’’ and is gaining 35’’ to the main group.


He’s a much better descender than the front duo, will he use that to his advantage?

We say hello to the pavé one last time, and to answer my own question, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam says hello to the leading duo. It’s going to be a three way fight for the win!


The gap has grown to 42’’ at end of the downhil section.

With the flamme rouge on sight pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot leads with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Meurisse on his wheel. Who’s going to come out on top of this Benelux waffle?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam storms the front with 600m to the line…


… here comes Meurisse…


And it’s Victory for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Xandro Meurisse!! What a ride from the Belgian, who took to the front so early in the race to clinch a sensational triumph!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Benoot takes second ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cdb.png Sinkeldam with two brave attacks as well.

The second group finishes with a powerful pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Debesay sweeping the sprint in a absolutely outstanding day for his team. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Tsatevich, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bsb.png Schoonbroodt and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/and.png Vanspeybrouck finish in that order behind him.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Altur will be disappointed to come home 8th, while behind him pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/car.png Nolf and then pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Brkic complete the top10
