Cancellara on TREK DOMANE wins the 2014 Tour of Flanders

Fabian Cancellara of Trek Factory Racing defended his Tour of Flanders title in a pulsating final sprint to beat Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) and Sep Vanmarke (Belkin) to the line.

The Swiss rider attacked with Sep Vanmarcke on the final ascent of the Kwaremont and joined forces with Van Avermaet and Stijn Vandenbergh (Omega Pharma – Quick-Step) who had slipped clear earlier in the race.

The foursome held off a chase from Cannondale and Omega Pharma – Quick-Step with Alexander Kristoff leading home the rest of the field in fifth place. For all their dominance earlier in the race Patrick Lefevere’s team were forced to settle for three riders inside the top ten and Stijn Vandenbergh in fourth.

There was no doubting that this was Cancellara’s day with the Trek leader producing arguably his most complete performance to win his third Flanders crown. This may have lacked a long, lone solo attack but his race winning canvas was covered in masterstrokes; all of which were set against an uncertain background as his team lost both Stijn Devolder and Yaroslav Popovych through crashes.

His first real foray came on the Kwaremont, where he sailed clear with and eager Vanmarcke. The pair linked up on the penultimate climb, setting QuickStep’s plans alight in a move that also distanced Peter Sagan (Cannondale).

Even an attack from Vanmarcke on the Paterberg couldn’t ruffle Cancellara’s feathers and on the Paterberg the duo reeled in a tiring Vandenbergh before setting their sights on Van Avermaet. The BMC rider was unquestionably the most aggressive rider in the race but when the four linked up inside the final run to the finish in Oudenaarde, Cancellara once again let his experience tell.

Vandenbergh was the first to attack from the leading group, having sat on for most of the day’s ride with Van Avermaet, but when the BMC rider countered Cancellara feigned exhaustion and ushered Vanmarcke to the front to chase down the two leaders.

Inside the finale kilometre, Cancellara appeared to draw away from the rest of the group. It gave him enough room, and enough time, to launch his sprint at the perfect moment.

New course, same magic

Big crowds welcomed the riders in Bruges for the start of the 98th Tour of Flanders. Rain showers also welcomed the riders and during most of the first hour the riders were treated to a spring soaking. Only when approaching Heule, town of the Ronde 2014, did a breakaway manage to distance the peloton. Eleven riders featured in front with Taylor Phinney (BMC) being the biggest name among them.

While the large group quickly collected a lead of four minutes, crashes scared the peloton. Luke Durbridge (Orica-GreenEdge) and Johan Le Bon (FDJ.fr) were the first casualties and a little later Johan Vansummeren (Garmin-Sharp) rode into an elderly woman who stood on a traffic island in Wielsbeke. After the horrible crash both Vansummeren and the woman were brought to the hospital in bad condition.

Sep Vanmarcke (Belkin) also crashed but continued the race. Meanwhile, the lead group kept the pace high and when riding through Oudenaarde for the first time the gap was six minutes.

To the Oude Kwaremont

As the race tackled the first climbs, the gap of the lead group came back down. After the first ascent of the Oude Kwaremont the gap was five minutes. After three climbs, when approaching the 2650m pavé stretch of Kerkgate the bad luck for the Lotto-Belisol continued with their leader Jürgen Roelandts crashing out of the race.

On the descent of the Molenberg, and the peloton approached the Paddestraat there was another major crash. One rider slipped away in a left-hand corner and soon several riders were going down including Luca Paolini and former double winner Stijn Devolder. The peloton was split in two parts. On the Paddestraat, Omega Pharma – QuickStep put seven men on the front.

The crashes kept on coming. Popovych hooked into the clothing of a fan and went down hard, and on the wide roads towards the cobbles of the Haaghoek the second group with Devolder and Pozzato managed to come back to the front. Tony Gallopin (Lotto-Belisol) crashed at a bus stop platform to compound Lotto’s problems.

At the beautiful cobbles of the Haaghoek there were seven leaders left in front with Phinney, Romain Zingle (Cofidis), Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEdge), Stig Broeckx (Lotto-Belisol), Aliaksander Kuchynski (Katusha), James Vanlandschoot (Wanty-Groupe Robert) and Jelle Wallays (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise) all clear. The peloton hit the cobbles three minutes later, still being led by Boonen’s troops.

The action explodes

When moving on towards the Kanarieberg – the ninth climb of the day – the speed in the peloton increased and the leaders were no more than two minutes clear. On the Kanarieberg Matteo Trentin (Omega Pharma-Quick-Step) and Manuel Quinziato (BMC) attacked with Bernhard Eisel (Sky) managing to latch on.

At the foot of the 2.2km long Oude Kwaremont only Impey, Broeckx and Phinney had survived from the initial break.

Yet another crash occurred in the peloton when BMC-riders switched wheels. Stijn Devolder hit the deck again, along with four riders from Tinkoff-Saxo.

The situation after the Paterberg – just before the Koppenberg – saw Impey, Phinney and Broeckx with just over half a minute on a group of about forty riders. Belkin and QuickStep led this group to the tough cobbled Koppenberg climb. A second group with Bradley Wiggins (Sky), Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp) followed; with a third group containing Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) at nearly a minute.

Impey led the race over the Koppenberg with a small gap over Terpstra, Boonen, Cancellara, Sagan, Vanmarcke, Geraint Thomas (Sky), John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano), Filippo Pozzato (Lampre-Merida), Stybar, Vandenbergh and only a few others which formed a lead group of about twenty riders.

On the cobbles of the Mariaborrestraat and Steenbeekdries the second group came back but in the meantime Stijn Vandenbergh, Dries Devenyns (Giant-Shimano) and Edvald Boasson Hagen (Sky) snuck away.

On the Taaienberg, Boasson Hagen and Devenyns dropped Vandenbergh. The two leaders had a handful of seconds on a star-studded group featuring Sagan, Cancellara, Boonen, Vandenbergh, Stybar, Terpstra, Degenkolb, Vanmarcke, Van Avermaet, Björn Leukemans (Wanty – Groupe Gobert) and Sébastien Minard (AG2R La Mondiale).

At 33km from the finish the duo were caught back and thirteen riders were leading. Devenyns attacked again, and soon after Van Avermaet tried his luck and broke clear with Vandenbergh on his wheel. Nobody in the lead group wanted to chase the leaders down and the pace dropped.

Sagan led the favourites-group over the cobbles as Degenkolb began to lose contact. Cancellara took over shortly after the cobbles which clearly hurt many riders. In front Van Avermaet received no support from Vandenbergh but still the duo gained half a minute on the favourites group as Vanmarcke attacked without success.

Omega lose their grip

At twenty kilometres from the finish the race turned on its head, first as Paolini and little later a large group with Pozzato, Thomas, Wiggins and others bridged back up with the favourites. When approaching the third ascent of the Oude Kwaremont the two leaders had 25 seconds on Leukemans and 45 seconds on the peloton.

Halfway up the climb, with Omega Pharma scattered and Sagan lacking punch, Cancellara began to stamp his authority on the race. The rest would have to fall in line.

2014 Winners of Laguna Lang Co International Triathlon – Ruedi Wild of Switzerland and Radka Vodickova Winning!

Wow, the weather was perfect, the seas were calm. A great setting for the 2nd Laguna Lang Co International Triathlon. The Saigon Cycles Team were up early as check-in to the transition area was at 5:30am.

It was all action from the minute we arrived, till the bike leg was over (we’re not very good at running!). By 6:30 the transition was full and everyone was making their way down to the swim start.  This year the weather was much better than last year, with calm seas the fiery red disc of the sun in the background, a fantastic backdrop.

Out of the swim first was Michael Murphy from Australia, followed by Chris McCormack and Radka Vodickova. Out for the bike leg just leaving transition Fredrik Croneborg flatted, lucky Saigon Cycles head mechanic To was just outside the transition area and we were able to replace his disc quickly with one of our spare wheels and Fredrik was off to a fantastic bike ride eventually coming in 6th fastest for the bike even after losing at least 5 minutes due to the flat and 4th overall in the mens pro category. The winners in the end were Ruedi Wild of Switzerland and Radka Vodickova of the Czech Republic. Congrats to the Saigon Cycles Relay Team who came in fourth, to Todd Gilmore who came 1st in his age category and was also the 1st amateur to finish coming 11th just after the first 10 pros. Our John Mucha won his age group 55 to 59, congrats! We are already planning for next year!  

Final results were:

Saigon Children’s Charity Cycle Day 1

The 2013 Saigon Children’s Charity Cycling Adventure kicked off today for Day 1, riding from the Mekong Delta town of Tra Vinh to Can Tho. A total of 90km. (some participants will say more!!)

Leaving Tra Vinh this morning at 7:30 we made steady progress on the provincial road out of town towards the school that Saigon Children’s Charity supports. It was a fantastic experience for all to meet and see the children, their smiling faces and just how happy they were.

To see first hand where all the generous donations to the Charity including that of the Charity Cycling Adventure go to make a difference to these underprivileged children. SCC staff Nguyen and Hung did a great job organising some yummy treats for the children.  A big thanks to them for a successful Day 1.

After visiting the school and bidding the children farewell, we headed out along some very nice concrete paths that wound their way through small villages and the everyday life of the Delta. Some parts were a challenge with sandy stretches and surprises like where a bridge that was there 3 months ago is now not there! So the word ‘Adventure’ as Craig says is a great catch all phrase for the ride.

The day was topped off with a nice climb over the Cần Thơ Bridge, surprisingly the clearance under it is 39 m but it sure does feel like more when you are riding up it. We ended the ride down by the river in Can Tho, with a fabulous view of the bridge in the background and the nice afternoon breeze to cool us down after the 90km. Looking forward to a short day tomorrow of 54km!
