Ciclismo Cup (Adriatica Ionica Race)
« on: January 08, 2018, 10:50 »
Ciclismo Cup 2018

The former "Coppa Italia" turned into the Ciclismo Cup in 2017, and with the introduction of PMG Sport as a new media partner it turned out to be a very successful first year, I think. Let's hope we can expect more of the same this time.

February 4th      1.1      G.P. G.S. Emilia
February 11th      1.HC      Trofeo Laigueglia
March 4th      1.HC      GP Industria & Artigianato
March 22nd-25th      2.1      Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali
April 16th-20th      2.HC      Tour of the Alps
April 22nd      1.1      Giro dell’Appennino
June 20th-24th      2.1      Adriatica Ionica Race/Following the Serenissima Routes
September 15th      1.1      Coppa Agostoni – Giro delle Brianze
September 16th      1.1      100° Coppa Bernocchi – 43° GP BPM
September 18th-19th      2.1      Giro della Toscana – Memorial Alfredo Martini
September 20th      1.1      Coppa Sabatini – Gran Premio città di Peccioli
September 22nd      1.1      Memorial Marco Pantani
September 23rd      1.1      Trofeo Matteotti
October 6th      1.HC      Giro dell’Emilia
October 7th      1.HC      Gran Premio Bruno Beghelli
October 9th      1.HC      Tre Valli Varesine
October 10th      1.HC      Milano-Torino
October 11th      1.HC      Gran Piemonte

Unfortunately it starts with a low, as the GP GS Emilia (formerly GP della Costa Etruschi) had to be cancelled, but therefor the Trofeo Laigueglia the week after is set to have a stellar line up at least, and for the first time with live coverage.

The Giro del Piemonte return to its place as the final race before Il Lombardia after sitting out in 2017 (and hosting the National Championships instead), and as a new addition in June there's the Adriatica Ionica Race. It's a very ambitions project, organized by Moreno Argentin. Over a period of three years, it it supposed to grow into a 10 day race, starting in Venice, and finishing in Athens, visiting countries like Slovenia, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Macedonia.

For the first edition the organizers "only" plan to visit Italy, Austria and Slovenia, but even that sounds very ambitious, and I guess it's better to be a bit cautious at first.

    mmh, interesting, a press release was sent out this morning, but it didn't state anything like that. 45 teams asking to line up sounds like quite a lot though...

    No 3 man TTT in Coppi e Bartali this year. :(
    Why, oh why? *shakes fist at the sky* :(

    I think that since it's a prestigious 2.1 race with several WT teams participating, every Conti team with any sort of ambition wants to come. They don't get a chance to race against #sunweb #trek #sky #jumbo on the flat, in the mountains and in a TTT that often.

    Trofeo Laigueglia

    Sunday, February 11th

    Marking the start of the 2018 Italian cycling season, the 55th edition of the Trofeo Laigueglia was presented today. The press release states "fundamental changes", but by the look of, those just consist of 4 instead of 3 laps on the hilly finishing circuit:



    The list of participating teams looks good though, and nonetheless it should be an entertaining race:
    • #ag2r AG2R La Mondiale
    • #bardiani Bardiani CSF
    • #androni Androni Giocattoli Sedermec
    • #wilier Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia
    • #nippo Nippo – Vini Fantini – Europa Ovini
    • #teamit Nazionale Italia
    • #academy Israel Cycling Academy
    • #fortuneo Team Fortuneo – Samsic
    • #aquablue Aqua Blue Sport
    • #delko Delko Marseille Provence KTM
    • #gazprom Gazprom – Rusvelo
    • #ccc CCC Sprandi Polkowice
    • #wallonie WB Aqua Protect Veranclassic
    • #verandas Veranda’s Willems – Crelan
    • #wanty Wanty - Groupe Gobert
    • #amore Amore e Vita Prodir
    • #sangemini Sangemini MGKvis Vega
    • #biesse Biesse Carrera Gavardo
    • #damico D’Amico Utensilnord
    • #mstina MS Tina Focus
    • #virtu Team Virtu Cycling
    • #vorarlberg Team Voralberg
    With Vitus, MS Tina and Biesse there are three two debutantes to the professional cycling scene among those teams, and they (same as us) will be happy to hear, that the race will be broadcasted live on PMG Sport :)

    Vitus Pro Cycling is the former Raleigh-GAC, so anything but a debutant. ;)

    Gran Premio Industia e Artigianato di Larciano

    Sunday, March 4th

    When the Roma Maxima was scrubbed after 2015, the GP Larciano was slotted in to take place the day after Strade Bianche, and thereby the quality of the race has improved massively. Also this year seven World Tour teams are going to compete in a pretty good field of riders again, with #mitchelton Adam Yates and #ef Simon Clarke including the past two winners of the race


    The profile of the race is practically unchanged for years, and it's likely to be decided over the four laps on the hilly finishing circuit:


    There are two hours of live coverage on Rai, PMG Sport, Eurosport & l'Equipe on from ~14:00 cet :)

    Knowing the area a bit, I wonder if they've ever considered going up the steep (but shorter) side of the Montalbano, then continue through San Baronto and descend to Larciano on the Via dei Nardini & Via Santa Lucia.
    If you check out that road on Google StreetView, you'll even meet a local amateur in #vinifantini kit. :lol

    The road becomes very narrow on the actual descent through olive groves, though, while the descent they're actually using is on a two-lane Strada Provinciale. That's probably why.

    not a bad race there



    Visconti, Ballerini and Benedetti attacked early but were brought back on the final ascent. #academy Neilands, #bora Majka, #androni Masnada, #mitchelton Yates, #katusha Fabbra, #ef Martinez, #movistar Roson and #nippo Bagioli then went clear on the climb but with no collaboration it quickly came back together on the descent. After some unsuccessful attacks then #bahrain Mohoric came to the front and dropped one after the other on that rapid downhill to celebrate a nice solo win in the end.

    #nippo Canola tried to close the gap with a late attack but couldn't close the final 10m or so to Mohoric. #androni Ballerini behind took the sprint for 3rd, in quite a strong showing - last man left over from the break, still 1st in the sprint.

    Masterclass from Mohoric. Thought Canola was gonna catch him for sure in that last km, but he just couldn't close that final gap.

    Pretty chuffed with the showing of Krists. :cool

    Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali

    March 22nd to 25th

    With five stages over four days, the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali follows the same scheme as usual, offering a playground for all kind of riders, sprinters, climbers and also time trial specialists.

    22/3 - 1^ SEMITAPPA, GATTEO - GATTEO, 97.8 KM​


    22/3 - 2^ SEMITAPPA: GATTEO A MARE - GATTEO, 13,3 km (TTT)


    23/3 - 2^ TAPPA: RICCIONE - SOGLIANO AL RUBICONE, 130 km


    24/3 - 3^ TAPPA: CREVALCORE - CREVALCORE, 171 km


    25/3 - 4^ TAPPA: FIORANO MODENESE - MONTEGIBBIO (SASSUOLO), 12,5 km (TT)


    Contrary to the past editions, the TTT will be run with full teams (instead of teams split in two) though, and the final time trial is way harder than it looks like on that profile, as it includes a 1.9km climb averaging at 10% again.

    From a wide range of interested teams, the following 25 were invited to participate:
    • #sky Team Sky
    • #ef Team EF Education First – Drapac
    • #mitchelton Mitchelton - Scott
    • #jumbo Team Lotto NL Jumbo
    • #movistar Movistar Team
    • #trek Trek Segrafredo
    • #wilier Wilier Selle Italia
    • #androni Androni Giocattoli  - Sidermec
    • #nippo Nippo- Vini  Fantini - Europa Ovini
    • #bardiani Bardiani - Csf
    • #gazprom Gazprom - Colnago
    • #delko Delko Marseille Provence KTM
    • #cajarural Caja Rural
    • #ccc CCC Sprandi Polkowice

    • #biesse Biesse Carrera Gavardo
    • #aquablue Aqua Blue Sport
    • #trevigiani Trevigiani Phoenix
    • #mstina MS Tina Focus
    There's no full start list available yet, but we are likely to see some very strong teams lining up for the race.

    Highlights of the stages will be available on PMGSport and RaiSport around 17:30cet each day.

    Some decent WT teams there, #sky brings Sivakov (first race for him) and Rosa, #trek Mollema & Felline, #movistar Betancur, Valls, de la Parte and Carapaz, #mitchelton Albasini, #jumbo Battaglin, vs more or less the usual competition you see in Italy.

    Hard to say who's the favourite for this. #mitchelton Mitchelton Scott starts with 5 man only, Sky with 6, but I guess it's still likely that one of those two teams (or maybe Trek) will win.

    The two escapees attacked right at the start (together with Emil Dima from MS Tina - Focus), never to be brought back. Cunego lost 7 minutes. Pozzato DNF

    mmh, are you sure? It says "Live at 17:30", which is the time the highlight show was aired (and the TTT was long over by then).

    Turned out the two rider deficit was too much for Greenedge to compensate btw, but having one man less couldn't stop Sky from winning it by 10 seconds, ahead of a strong CCC team in 2nd.

    #jumbo Team Lotto NL Jumbo finished 4th, so Eenkhoorn defended a healthy lead of over 1 minute to everyone (but Craddock, who is now 12s behind) in gc

    ...when it came to racing on hillier terrain yesterday, Eenkhoorn and Craddock were unable to defend their positions in gc. While the young Dutchmen was dropped early anyway, Craddock initially looked good, but then (same as Cattaneo) crashed trying to close the gap to a front group of favourites during the last lap. At that point the lead group consisted of Mollema, Ciccone, Rosa, Guillaume Martin, Carapaz, Bouwman and Ivan Sosa.

    Bouwman then attacked but also fell on a little descent quickly after, so it came down to an uphill sprint on the cobbled roads into Sogliano, where Mollema turned out to be the strongest.

    Diego Rosa now leads the gc by 7 seconds ahead of Mollema with a time trial still to come (after today's stage, which is likely to end up in a sprint)

    Although totally flat, stage 3 didn't end up in a big bunch sprint but after some echelon action and crashes during the final lap #sky Christopher Lawless took his first win as a pro in a sprint of 23:

    From the Top 10 in GC, Bouwman, Sosa, Martin and Ciccone lost around ~one minute, dropping out of contention for the final podium. The overall victory should be decided between Diego Rosa and Bauke Mollema - separated by just 7 seconds - in today's time trial, with Richard Carapaz and Lucas Hamilton - separated by 9 seconds - fighting out the final spot on the podium.

    Rosa has the advantage of having competed in the same time trial in 2014 already, when he finished 3rd behind Cataldo and Matteo Rabottini. It will still not be easy to keep Mollema behind though
