Tour de l'Avenir 2013; 24/08-31/08
« on: August 22, 2013, 22:51 »
It's time for the world stars of the future to show their cards again. Welcome to the Tour de l'Avenir!



The race history
Since its inception in 1961, the Tour de l'Avenir has had many names; but the current name was both the original name, and the name used throughout most of the race's history.
Known as the Tour de l'Avenir from 1961 to 1971 (with a replacement series of two stage races going by the name of GP de l'Avenir or Paris-Vierzon-Thiers held in 1970), it was renamed Trophée Peugeot de l'Avenir for 1972 for sponsorship reasons, keeping that name until 1978. Throughout all these years, it was an amateur race (although it wasn't held in 1975); and in fact the race was started as a means to get the east-bloc amateurs to compete in the west. In these years, the race was run with national teams.
It continued as an amateur race until 1980 (now again as the Tour de l'Avenir), but was declared "open" from 1981, leading to a couple of editions won by quite prominent professionals such as Greg LeMond and Laurent Fignon, riding for their normal trade teams. From 1985, the race was called Tour de la Communauté européenne.
After a year without any race (1991), the Tour de l'Avenir returned in 1992. From then on, it has kept the name; it was now open to all professionals and amateurs under 25 years of age.
With the age limit, the race had once again become a real Tour of the Future, often being one of the first places where future GT podium candidates made a name for themselves: Christophe Moreau was runner-up in 1995, Floyd Landis finished third in 1999. Robert Gesink was second in 2006, and former winners include Denis Menshov (2001), Bauke Mollema (2007) and of course Nairo Quintana (2010). Even before the age limit was introduced, riders like Felice Gimondi, Joop Zoetemelk and Miguel Indurain used the race as a springboard to a successful professional career.
From 2007, the race was part of the UCI's newest brainchild, being the final event of the U23 Nations Cup; it was again run with national teams, open to all riders younger than 23 years. And after the 2011 edition, ASO passed responsibility for the organisation on to Tour de l'Ain organiser Alpe Vélo.

The parcours

Prologue: Louhans; 5.1 km (stage map)
The 5.1 km prologue is the only ITT of the race. It will deliver a first GC, but these 5100 m are unlikely to make a big difference overall.




Stage 1: Louhans-Châteaurenaud - Arbois; 145.8 km (stage map)
After riding on the flat for most of the day, riders will face the 4th category Col des Planches within 5 km of the finish. Attacks from stage hunters and puncheurs can be expected.



Stage 2: Champagnole - Saint-Vulbas; 178.9 km (stage map)
Descending from 535 m at the start to 200 m at the finish, this should realistically end in a sprint.




Stage 3: Aix-les-Bains - Albertville; 125.8 km stage map
Not your typical stage, the riders will gradually ascend (with a few ramps thrown in for good measure) until they reach the Col du Frène after 94.8 km. There will be over 30 km to get things together again after the climb, so I expect a group of 20-50 riders to sprint for the win.


Stage 4: Albertville - Saint-François-Longchamps; 106.3 km stage map
The first real mountain stage. After the 1st category Col du Grand Cucheron, the GC will probably be turned upside down on the southern slopes of the Col de la Madeleine, with the finish in Saint-François-Longchamps some 5 km from the top.


Stage 5: Saint-Gervais-les-Bains - Morzine; 70.7 km stage map
Taking a page from recent Tours de France, the Tour de l'Avenir also features a short stage. Though not looking particularly difficult at first sight, the 3rd category Côte de Chatillon-sur-Cluses and the 2nd category climb Col des Gets coupled with the very short length of the stage should provide some interesting racing. This may not be the stage where the race is won - but it will be the day the race is lost for some.

Stage 6: Morzine - Châtel; 125.5 km stage map
The penultimate stage offers an interesting menu of multiple climbs, starting with the 2nd category Col de Saxel and Col de Terramont before serving the 3rd category Côte de la Vernaz as an appetiser to the 1st category Col du Corbier, and finishing with the ~15 km false flat to the finish in Châtel as dessert.
This could be awesome if some riders need to go for broke, or it could become extremely dull if everybody agrees on a truce before settling things on the last day.

Stage 7: Châtel - Plateau des Glières; 135.2 km stage map
The Tour de l'Avenir finishes (literally) on a high with a mountaintop finish on the Plateau des Glières. En route the peloton will ascend the Côte de la Vernaz (on a different route than yesterday) and the 1st category climb to Le Salève overlooking Genève, but with ~40 km from the top of Salève to the start of the final climb, it will probably come down to the last 14 km, rising 803 m from Thorens-Glières. The first part is basically false flat, making the following ~7 km section (until 2 km from the finish) decisive. With a 9.1% average, and climbing 11% on the last 800 m, this should split up the peloton. After a short descent, any riders who have managed to get away will have to hold off the chasers on the final 1600 m (at 5%) for a stage win, and potentially overall victory.



The jerseys
The yellow jersey is for the overall leader on time. The leader of the mountain classification gets the polka-dot jersey; the leader in the points competition wears the green jersey - that's all just like in the "real" Tour.
Where the Tour de l'Avenir differs is in the fourth jersey: It has no jersey for best young rider (after all, it's for young riders only), so the red jersey is worn by the most combative rider on the previous stage; like the red number in the Tour, but far more visible.

The startlist reads like a who's who of U23 racing. The most prominent absentees are the Czechs with Hnik, Hirt and Vakoč; other than that, the best U23 riders (who aren't already at a WT or big ProConti team) are here:
Alaphilippe, Gougeard, Herklotz, Zabel jr., Ewan, Howson, Stuyven, Kudus, Valgren, Norman Hansen, Haugaard, Yates, Formolo, Ayazbayev, Skujiņš, Enger, Svendsen, van Baarle, van der Lijke, Yatsevich, Mohorič and Pibernik can all be expected to leave some sort of mark on the race.
In particular, I'm looking forward to see what the all-African Centre Mondial du Cyclisme squad can do (go Till Drobisch!); but I'm also awaiting sprint battles between Herklotz, Zabel jr., Ewan, Norman Hansen and whoever else is a good sprinter in this field. I expect especially the Slovenian team, with 2012 junior world champion Mohorič and 2013 elite national champion Luka Pibernik, and the ever-dangerous Colombians to be at the front at decisive moments; but really no team should be underestimated.



The broadcast
I haven't been able to find information on TV broadcasts. If they exist, they're most probably to be found on France 3 Rhône-Alpes (who are also a race sponsor).
The race has a Twitter account, it went almost unused during last year's edition though. For following on Twitter, #TourAvenir is the appropriate hashtag.

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    He's only 18/19, said earlier that he was planning to do three years with the AIS but it realistically it would never be more than two. Still think he will be there next year unless he gets an offer he can't refuse.

    Yeah crazy talent already and he showing it last year too. Probably best for him to stay another year in the juniors and develop but the DVP route would be possible.

    On the British watch and Adam & Simon Yates the identical twins have been impressive.
    I don't know much about them but they seem a talented pair and they both seem to be pretty good climbers. Simon is also a track world champion after winning the Points race at this year's world champs. Saw him a bit at last year's TOB.

    Simon looks like he will move to Sky next year and Adam may be going to FDJ the year after so look out for them in the future

    The British twins continue to impress:

    Stage 6:



    Stage 7:



    Which means Fernandez holds off Adam Yates in the end for the win.
