Balkan Road Race Championships 2021
SportingNonsense
For the next stop of the Continental Championships, we are in Europe for the first time. And we have another MG first, with the Balkan Road Race Championships.

Hosting the location is Greece, and we are in Athens. It's the course that hosted the 2004 Olympic Games, and with a lot of similarities to the Acropolis Cup, a former race on the MG circuit.

A look at the favourites lists confirms the presence of Slovenia in the field, who are very much tipped to win. Mohoric tops the bill, with also Spilak, Tratnik, Novak, Roglic and Kump are amongst the strongest climbers in the race.

Lilovski and Robov from Bulgaria; Rumac from Croatia, Roman from Serbia and Kastrantas from Greece are other potential team leaders.

Here's the field getting underway.

And this is the full startlist. 11 nations in total.

Understandably Slovenia are left to control the peloton. Anticipating this, the Slovenia team was completed by Dzamastagic and Per, and they are working away throughout the race here, along with Roglic.

As the race developed, Croatia showed signs of intent - including in 3rd wheel here Robert Kiserlovski. After a distinguished MG career, these Continental Championships look like they could be his final racing.

Notably though, Croatia never actually send a rider to the very front, leaving that to Slovenia. In the case above, and below with the breakaway finally caught at 10km to go, it has been Kump on the front.

Final hill! Lilovski is on the attack, and on cue, Mohoric is there to look to live up to his team's work.

Frankovic leads the push behind, with Spilak, Kump, Ioannidis, Tvetcov, Potocki, and Kastrantas.

An 18 second advantage for Lilovski and Mohoric over the top. Looming into the Top 10 in the pack now is Grosu. Hills survived, suddenly his sprint makes him a real danger.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-10.jpg

Lilovski wants this for sure, but he is struggling to get Mohoric to work with him.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-11.jpg

Croatia pick up the chase, that's Frankovic and Potocki. Kump and Grosu very alert, as two strong sprinters in the group. Rumac is probably Croatia's fastest.

Also fast and still in the group, but further back, are Kalaba and Khamberaj.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-13.jpg

Grosu knows that the gap needs to close, and he's going for it as the final kilometre nears.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-14.jpg

Too much too soon? He is brought back into the mix.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-15.jpg

Mohoric has the front, but he isn't looking too concentrated as the group surges back to them.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-16.jpg

There's the line, but here are the sprinters. Kump, Grosu, and Rumac.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-17.jpg

Mohoric has been truly caught out here, and is down to 4th.

Grosu vs Kump.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-19.jpg

Photo finish!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-20.jpg

Who is going up in the air in celebrations? It's Grosu! The Romanian takes the victory, Slovenia have not managed to take out the win here. 2nd for Kump, despite having worked for the team earlier in the race - maybe that cost him?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-21.jpg

3rd for Rumac, and 4th for Mohoric.

Khamberaj sprints through for 5th, as the Top 10 is completed by Kastrantas, Spilak, Robov, Ioannidis and Lilovski.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/Others/Contis/B/bknr-22.jpg

Petrovski is 11th.

Tvetcov takes 12th, while Kalaba is able to sprint through for 13th, ahead of teammate Borisavljevic.
