Tropicale Amissa Bongo, 24-29 April
« on: April 24, 2012, 03:59 »
The race has arrived, the pedestal to greatness, the second greatest race in the world of cycling (first being the tour of Pakistan), the Tropicale Amissa Bongo. Rolland, twice on the podium in this race, could well podium a TdF. Charteaux, winning the race in 2010. winning the polka dots later in the year in the TdF. Teklehaimanot, stage winner and 5th in last year's edition joins the best team in the world. The winner of this race is destined for greatness, who'll be the next all time great to come out of this race.


The wonders of google translate says-
The seventh Bongo Tropical Amissa begins with a first time stage that connects Fougamou in Lambaréné. A short stage, 92 km, was held on a road surface particularly "stock" and a course without major difficulty. We can, without taking too much risk, play a bunch sprint on the banks of Ogooué.


Things are getting serious about this path that competitors have never done this. The final 35 km through the rainforest, offer climbers a field completely at their convenience.
Ndjolé, home for the first time an arrival could be the scene of the first surprises!


One of the few difficulties of the day is .... to start! After this first hurdle, the "road sprinters' will be particularly vigilant. This day may well conclude, as often Akieni a great fight between the men most "fast" in this 2012 edition!


Tropical today can be played on a course where the mighty will, undoubtedly, the difference. The three main difficulties follow and offer the best opportunity to dig serious gaps.
A watch with interest the arrival "new formula" in the center of Bongoville. A small breakaway group will be held, probably, the victory of the stage.


Leaving Leconi survivors of this 7th edition will climb onto these wonderful platters. One of the last opportunities for latecomers to illustrate the Tropicale 2012. Still, do not forget to Franceville history is always written in the ultimate and spectacular ascent to the gallery.

    Leader's Jersey


    Stage winner strip


    Points Classification strip


    Young rider strip


    King of the mountains


    Best rider from Gabon


    Best African rider


    Point Chauds ??? jersey, guessing it's intermediate sprints


    Combativity strip

    Looks decidedly mundane for the classification it is awarded to.

    Gabonese breakaway strip? Think so, if my negligible French is anything to go by, possibly not then.


    Best African team

    Europcar and their predecessors have always been in this race. It was early in the year till last year. Good on them to send a team there. There used to be other French teams too earlier.

    Unofficial result- Europcar rider wins, Qhubeka rider 3rd.

    Great job ram, especially for the intro!

    About Europcar, like you said, they used to do that race every year when it used to be at the beginning of the season along with other french teams like FdJ. Europcar were really struggling for invites at races for the very first part of the season, mainly because of the change in the Tropicale Amissa Bongo race date.

    Cheers again folks.

    Full official results will take an era to be posted, so to start the second stage buildup

    Cat 4 climb after 20.6 km, then three intermediate sprints 32.8, 58 and 82 km into the race, two cat 3 climbs 96.5 and 124.7 km into the stage and both in the rainforest too.

    Tarzans to win the race and Janes to join Greenpeace. No sexism intended, just remember Jane taking care of Cheeta more often.

    Cheers zam, Jelloul in the break, finishing with the leaders and gaining 37 seconds on Charteau. Top day for him. Hope also increases for Jacques.

    Twentieth and twenty first could've been confusing to decipher.

    I guess the 80th placed rider is not trying to win this race.
