Any 0711 reports on what happened in the stage Fus?
Sorry, not much info coming out of Iran for now. :-x

So that winning team: Baby-Dump.

Does 'dump' have a meaning in Dutch, or is it just an incredibly inappropriate choice of English word?

(I'm assuming the business is sale of equipment for babies, not means of disposing of them: if the latter is the case, then I guess the name is appropriate after all)
The sponsor is a chain of baby equipment stores that sell at very cheap, even dumping prices. And "dumping prices" are in Dutch called "dumpprijzen"[1] ... hence the name of the store chain.

Their unique selling point is "Bij Baby-Dump vind je alles voor je baby tegen dumpprijzen"; in English "At Baby-Dump you find everything for your baby at dumping prices". Unfortunately (and I can't imagine that the company management is oblivious to this), in many other languages (and maybe even in Dutch), "baby dump" has very different connotations. :fp

Honestly, why the company hasn't changed its name yet, I don't know. :fp
 1. though apparently "dumpingprijzen" is also known and used; but I guess "dumpprijzen" is shorter

    Here's what I got from the #0711 guys in Iran about today's stage 2:
    Stage 2 of the Tour of Iran was 209.4 km from Urmia to the Aras Free Zone: Jonas Engel and four others formed a breakaway; but at the cat. 1 climb after 50 km the Iranians pushed the pace, pulled the break back and tore the field apart. 20 riders went away, Nicola Toffali made the 15-rider chase group that finally closed the gap to the front around km 150. On the final climb of the day with 22 km to go, four riders took off and ended up deciding the win amonst themselves. Nicola finished 12th on the stage; Jonas, Alexandre Ballet & Jan Hugger finished in the distanced peloton.



    You see, the locals don't need steep climbs to completely demolish any semblance of a peloton ... :D

    Today's totally unbiased[1] #0711 report:
    At the Tour of Iran, 0711|CYCLING came close to the stage win today! Jan Hugger tells the story of stage 3, 155 km from Aras to Tabriz:
    "Except for a short downhill, the road climbed continually from the start, from 712 m to the mountain pass at 1769 m after 73 km. We positioned ourselves in the front so that we'd be safe if the Iranians were to try to split the field in the crosswinds.
    A break of four got away early, and after 100 km they still had a four-minute advantage; so we took up the reins and, together with two other teams, reduced the gap to under one minute before the last climb and caught the break there. In the final, Nicola Toffali, Alexandre Ballet and I were at the front all the time. An Iranian rider could sneak away unnoticed - we still thought everything was together.
    Alex and I attacked time and again on the last five kilometres to split the group, but eventually it was Nicola who got away with 2 km to go and rode towards the finish alone. The peloton caught him practically on the line, he still finished in sixth place. I was at the front trying to slow down the field, had a perfect position for the sprint and came in on a 10th place."

     1.  ;)

    Well, it is a Yates. :P
    There's no relation (that I know of) to Adam and Simon Yates who, despite racing for an Aussie team, are very much British. ;)

    Boivin still in the lead, but he crashed at some point in the stage and left sprinting duties to Raim.

    The winds and the climbs split the peloton apart today, and the finishing climb did the rest. #pishgaman Amir Kolahdozagh wins the stage, #tarteletto Rob Ruijgh takes the overall lead.
    Same route tomorrow, only backwards. The climb with ~36 km to go could become decisive - though the downhill to Tabriz is only ~2%, that could still be enough to let a small group stay ahead.



    Also, have some photos from the first 4 days, courtesy of #0711:

    And for a very #0711 view, Toffali was held back by a mechanical in the final, "otherwise he might have ended up on the podium" (DS' words, not mine).

    Marini closing in with some more bonuses. Boivin and Smith must have picked up some of their own during the stage.

    #0711 Nicola Toffali was the best U45 rider today. Unfortunately, Rebellin is still around. ;)

    Team report:
    Stage 5 of the Tour of Iran started in the rain in Sarein and finished in Tabriz after 191.7 km. There was a lot of wind, and the team around Nicola Toffali performed great again. The Italian reports:
    "I started the stage feeling really bad. Maybe I was tired from yesterday, maybe I didn't sleep so well. There were many parts with crosswinds, and everytime the peloton stretched in echelons from one gutter to the other. On the last climb, with 46 km to go, Alexandre Ballet did a great job keeping me at the front of the race. 18 km from the line I tried an attack, and Davide Rebellin was the only to follow me - then we worked together until the finish."

    Nicola narrowly lost the sprint for the stage win and finished in second place. Due to the time gap to the peloton and bonus seconds, he is now third overall, only four seconds behind the leader. On tomorrow's final stage on a circuit in Tabriz Nicola will wear the white jersey of the best U25 rider. The overall win is within reach, and the team will support Nicola: "Tomorrow, we will try everything possible to win the race. There is an intermediate sprint and the stage finish with bonus seconds; we'll see what will happen - but of course, we will go for it!"

    Wrap-up from Iran; the final stage yesterday didn't change anything. #0711 report:
    Nicola Toffali finishes the Tour of Iran as third overall!
    The final stage consisted of ten laps on a 11.4 km circuit with an intermediate sprint after five laps. The 0711|CYCLING riders tried everything to get Nicola some bonus seconds, but the teams of the GC leader (Tarteletto-Isorex), the points leader (Baby-Dump) and Drapac-Pat's Veg, who all joined forces to control the peloton, had strength in numbers. At the intermediate sprint, Nicola was narrowly beaten; in the final he didn't follow the right wheel to reach one of the top places, but still sprinted to a good 8th-place finish.
    There were no changes in the general classification, and Nicola & the team could celebrate the third place in style at the closing dinner.

    I only watched the final couple of Kilometer, but that looked like a decent race there. Not the most honorable way to take a win indeed though :D

    All is fair in love, war - and bike racing! ;)

    He sat on as a spoiler, never even did some alibi work, and then jumped his two companions when it seemed clear that they wouldn't be caught after all, to make sure the team would win.
    Groenewegen may well have caught them all if Roosen hadn't jumped, though - how does the team's sprinter feel about being 'robbed' a win? :shh

    The Tour of Taihu doesn't even have a TT. Mareczko to win a stage race GC? :dizzy

    There actually was a prologue, but it looks as if the final stage could produce some small gaps. It's the same profile as the one they used last year (and in 2015) when Duque ended his career with the stage and GC win.



    Boivin did pick up some bonuses today which could be important if it's a reduced group sprint without Mareczko and Marini on Tuesday.

    There was? The more you know.
    Let's hope that final stage produces some sort of time gaps.

    At least the GC is (probably) not going to be decided on stage placing countbacks like the Volta a Catalunya some years ago when the mountain stage was cancelled ... :lol

    Big effort from Shelden as the last last man from the break to try and hold on, but to no avail (he made it into the last km). Mareczko extends his lead, but it's all about whether he can hold on tomorrow or not.
