Peter Sagan sprints to commanding victory in Colmar after brilliant BORA-hansgrohe teamwork on Tour de France stage 5

10.07.2019 - From the flat early stages, the terrain of the Tour de France has become progressively harder as the week has gone on. Today, moving into the Vosges mountains of north-east France, the undulating 175.5 km parcours saw four categorised climbs over its distance.
Starting with the relatively easy Côte de Grendelbruch, with its 4.9% average gradient, the climbs got longer and steeper as the day went on, with the Côte des Trois-Épis the day’s hardest, with average gradients of 6.7% over its 5km distance. The finale was pan flat, but the grouping of climbs so close to the finish would exclude the pure sprinters from challenging for the stage win.

Knowing they’d be unlikely to have the sprinters chasing them down today, the break went off with a spring in their step – albeit after a few false starts. This strong quartet immediately set about building their lead, but with BORA-hansgrohe driving the pace hard in the hope of contesting the finish, the lead couldn’t even reach two minutes, falling to a little more than a minute before the team peeled off the front and the gap started to rise again – testament to the sheer power and pace of the BORA-hansgrohe riders.

After the break made their way through the intermediate sprint after 71km, Peter Sagan took second from the bunch, adding some more points to his tally. Entering the bigger climbs, Marcus Burghardt and then Lukas Pöstlberger took to the front again, reducing the gap, as the pure sprinters began to be dropped off the back of the peloton, and at the same time the break started showing signs of splintering, with one of their number attacking solo, and another being dropped on the Côte des Trois-Épis.

It was all back together with 22km remaining, and it was going to be tense with plenty of opportunities to attack on the day’s final climb. The incredibly hard pace set from the peloton, as well as headwinds, meant it was almost impossible to attack in the run-in to the finish.
The strung-out, reduced bunch knew a sprint was the likely outcome as the race dipped into the final 10km and in spite of a late attack, Gregor Mühlberger took to the front to reel them back, with the German National Champion, Maximilian Schachmann riding to protect Peter Sagan. In the twisting lead-in to the finish, Peter read the road perfectly, surfing wheels and staying in the slipstream of the other sprinters.

Exploding with a few hundred metres to go, there was absolutely no doubt who was going to take the win, the Slovak rider leaving his rivals in the dust and extending his lead in the points contest.

TOUR, VAN AERT SFIORA LA VITTORIA NELLA 5a TAPPA

Il belga si è piazzato secondo alle spalle del vincitore Sagan, rafforzando la leadership nella Classifica Giovani

WVA
Treviglio (Bergamo), 11 luglio 2019 - Bianchi continua ad essere protagonista con il Team Jumbo-Visma al 106° Tour de France. Dopo i sensazionali successi nelle prime due tappe, il team ha sfiorato la terza vittoria con Wout Van Aert nella quinta frazione, 175,5 km da Saint-Dié-des-Vosges a Colmar (Francia) mercoledì 10 luglio. Equipaggiato con Oltre XR4, il 24enne di Herentals, fresco campione nazionale belga a cronometro, si è piazzato secondo nello sprint vinto da Peter Sagain, precedendo a sua volta l'italiano Matteo Trentin.

Grazie all'abbuono guadagnato nella città dell'Alto Reno, Van Aert ha rafforzato la seconda posizione in classifica generale, a 14 secondi dalla maglia gialla Julian Alaphilippe e con 11" di vantaggio sul suo capitano Steven Kruijswijk e sul compagno di squadra George Bennett. Van Aert ha inoltre portato a 26" il margine su Egan Bernal nella Classifica Giovani.
LA BICI DI WOUT VAN AERT
Wout Van Aert è equipaggiato con Bianchi Oltre XR4, il modello racing Bianchi per antonomasia. Realizzata con il sistema Bianchi CV powered by Countervail, sviluppata e testata in collaborazione con la squadra World Tour Team Jumbo-Visma, Oltre XR4 è progettata per massimizzare il vantaggio aerodinamico ed il controllo.

Tour de France #5: Boasson Hagen fights back after late puncture

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) sprinted to the stage 5 victory at the Tour de France. Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) finished in 2nd and Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) was 3rd.

Stage 5 of the Tour de France included some of the first "real" climbs of this year's race with two category 2 and two category 3 climbs included over the 175km route.

From early on in the stage, it was clear that there was a number of teams committed to controlling the race and setting it up for their sprinters, that could climb with some of the best.

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka had a really strong card to play in Edvald Boasson Hagen, as our Norwegian was looking good on all the early climbs. Unfortunately, lady luck abandoned Boasson Hagen at the start of final climb as he suffered a puncture.

After a quick change, Boasson Hagen had to chase back to the reduced front group. With just Michael Valgren and Roman Kreuziger remaining in the front group for Team Dimension Data, Boasson Hagen had to go at it alone and try to recover the 1-minute deficit he had at the top of the climb, with just 19km to go.

A daredevil descent through the convoy saw Boasson Hagen make it back to the front group with 9km to go. Valgren was then able to position our fast man near the front, to contest the sprint. "The Boss" paid for his chase effort though and while he was in the mix for the win, he would cross line in 12th on the stage.

"I had to spend some energy there, but I managed to get back. I didn't have too much left to sprint with but it's nice to have at least finished with this group. We had Roman and Michael in the front but it was better they stayed there, the final was hectic and technical in the convoy and it wasn't sure I could even make it back. I didn't end with a good result but at least it shows I can be there, and we will try again when there are more climbs like this." - Edvald Boasson Hagen

Colmar, July 10th - Sonny Colbrelli grabs the 4th place in the 5th stage in Colmar. A sweet and bitter result for the Italian sprinter:"I'm a little disappointed because today I felt the leg of the best days and I thought I could do a very good result. Unfortunately, the sprints with a reduced bunch can also be these and I have to thank my partner Matej Mohoric for the good job he did but, at some point, I lost him because of a shoulder push”.

 

"I came out of the last curve around the tenth position and then I reassembled but now the others were far away. I’m also sorry because there are not many occasions at the Tour and day by day fewer and fewer are left. Tomorrow we go uphill and I have to try to survive, but in the following stages I will definitely try again ".

 

Tomorrow, in fact, the 6th stage brings the first summit finish of this edition. The final haul is the steep and partly unpaved La Planche des Belles Filles, while the 160.5 kilometer route serves a total of seven climbs.

 

It will be the first exam for Vincenzo Nibali's ambitions for the final victory in Paris. "For us it is an important stage - explains SD Paolo Slongo - and the first real ascent after the Giro d'Italia. It will serve to better understand how Vincenzo is doing and based on the result we will understand what direction this Tour will take for him”.
