    from BMC -



    bmc racing team's dillier wins from breakaway in alberta

    06.09.2013, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

    BMC Racing Team's Silvan Dillier out-sprinted Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly presented by Kenda) to win Thursday's Stage 2 of the Tour of Alberta after the pair rode the final 80 kilometers of the 174.8-km race together.
    'Tried To Save Something'
    Dillier – a stagiaire signed from the BMC Development Team last month – and Tvetcov slipped the peloton after the second intermediate sprint. They eventually built a five-and-a-half-minute lead in a race that featured an average speed of 49.2 kph. "I think everybody was a little bit tired after all the attacks," Dillier said. "So at first we had a big gap. We tried to save something for the final because we knew they wanted to have the bunch sprint again. Then, the last 30 kilometers were going to be really hard. So we tried to save something to go to the end." The two led by 90 seconds with 10 km to go and by 30 seconds inside the final kilometer. They arrived 16 seconds ahead of third-place finisher Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling), who kept the overall lead after winning the race's first two stages, and 18 seconds ahead of the field. Dillier added to victories he scored for the BMC Development Team at the Tour de Normandie overall in March, the final stage of Triptyque Ardennais and Cham-Hagendorn in May and at Flèche Ardennaise in June.

    Two Victories In One Day
    BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Jackson Stewart said once Dillier was away with Tvetcov, he convinced the Swiss Under 23 road champion he could make it to the finish. "To tell him to go with 80 kilometers left, no one believes he can win," Stewart said. "So to win like this is huge. To win for us – in his first pro race – and to win a stage that you didn't have the biggest favorites as chances to win, is a great feeling for us." Dillier earned his victory about five hours after world road champion Philippe Gilbert won his first race of the season on Stage 12 at the Vuelta a España. It marked the third time in the past 13 months that the BMC Racing Team has won two races in one day. Last August, Taylor Phinney won the final stage at the USA Pro Challenge the same day Gilbert won Stage 9 of the Vuelta. The same month, Johann Tschopp won the overall title at the Larry H. Miller hours after Alessandro Ballan took the final stage of the Eneco Tour of Benelux. In the overall standings, BMC Racing Team's Cadel Evans and Brent Bookwalter remain fourth and fifth, respectively, 36 and 37 seconds off Sagan's lead.

    :O
    That's some serious speed.

    They arrived 16 seconds ahead of third-place finisher Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling), who kept the overall lead after winning the race's first two stages, and 18 seconds ahead of the field.
    Creating a two-second gap to all the others in a bunch sprint ...
    Sagan shouldn't be allowed to participate in races like this, it's just not fair on the other riders.

     Hadn't heard it was back on, but by luck I caught the last 45kms.
     Tidy racing.
     Dennis owes Gesink a big than you for culling the big breakaway on the final climb.
     Made the last 40 kms a mini echelon chase.

     Peloton so far back, I gave up waiting.

    Cyclingnews article mentions nothing of crosswinds or even wind, while the photos show BMC breaking the race into echelons.

    I grew up in that area.  There is ALWAYS a wind.  The only question is how strong.

    So Evans wins with a lovely sprint. :hug

    He executed it to perfection. He let Geschke do the dirty work and then finished it off with a surprisingly fast sprint. I assumed Slagter would have the sprint nailed, but he didn't seem to have the legs and Geschke timed it all terribly wrongly, going miles too early though albeit he kind of had to if he wanted to catch Day.
     
    And a nice consolation win for #bmc after their mess of things yesterday.
    Dennis keeps the #yellow.

    A great day.  I was right near the summit of the KOM road, then moved for the last lap so got to see the bunch 3x.

    Man it was wet, and cold.  Right in the foothills of the Rockies.  Pouring rain, some wind and cold.

    Great day though.

    Cannot stay and watch tomorrow in Calgary though.  Work Monday and have to drive home tomorrow.  Staying in Banff tonight, that's a plus.  I always enjoy Banff.

    The last week has been awful.  Normal temps for this time of year over there would be mid to high '20's.

    But it has been (both here and there) cold and raining.  There is some massive low pressure front pushing up from the US, I don't know if it is maybe due to the big fire burning in Californis right now or what but it's odd.  Like winter arrived 3 months early.

    Supposed to 27* and sunny today, I woke up to the sound of rain hammering down, again.

    That was some nice cornering  by Sagan in the final on today's stage, he essentially won it just by taking that corner faster then everyone else.  :D

    This guy? :O

    I checked now, he rides for Bissell's Elite/U23 team apparently: http://www.feltet.dk/nyheder/nicolai_broechner_fortsaetter_karrieren_i_usa/
    So a stagiaire deal for Alberta probably.

    Young Nicolai Broechner got 5th in sprint on last stage.

    Luke Keough 4th for Youth CQ, not to mention R. Dennis 4 Yth CQ!!

    Good to see Farabaugh show himself, glad he didn't cause Stemper crash.

    Yeah, he's been quite impressive. 6th and 5th in sprinting fields of this quality, at his age, isn't something Danish riders often do.
    If only we had a Danish ProConti team; he'd be a perfect recruit for them.
