Tirreno-Adriatico stage 2 race report : HOW WE LEARNED...

Tirreno-Adriatico stage 2 race report :


One of the greatest lessons in the game of football is the 90 minutes rule. You can play well all you want. But then you mess up in the 89 th minute and the rest is all irrelevant.

So, using that metaphor, you can say that 12 km to the finish of the 195 second stage it went just perfect for us. The whole team was in the front as the peloton that caught the breakaway was accelerating towards the last climb. There was our Ben Hermans in great mood. “I did not feel
My legs at all” he said, meaning that he was flying .

But right there he felt that noise and the shifters suddenly did not respond. A bike change was needed in the worst of moments when the speed was full gas mode. Half the team retreated to bring him back but although he was able to cut some of his losses, the damage was too much to bear.

Ben: “ I know there or worse things in life. But still I am very disappointed. GC is gone.
I am now 2:30 behind. What a shame. Was very motivated. Got great support from every team member. I wanted to give them a great result and it just ended right there”...

We had other cards. Krists Neilands was another Hope. But he was derailed into a ... potato field. “ Just my fault” he said . “ I went off the road into potato land or whatever, I couldn’t make ot back so easy and that’s it. When I got back to road peleton was away, I try to come back but the guys started droping from peleton and the road was blocked”.

“A sad day, especially after our great day in the TTT “ said our Belgian Tom Van Asbroeck who was riding very well today like most of his teammates till it all went to vain. “We will have to now change focus”.

Indeed we will. The team pro manager Kjell Carlström will call upon the team to refocus on a new strategy : “ We will try to go for winning a stage and of course, breakaways will be more probable now”.

Back to the stage: The Winner was the great Julian Alaphilippe from Deceuninck - Quick-Step Cycling Team. Nobody could touch him today. Leader of the race is Adam Yates from Mitchelton Scott.

Hats off to them.
