ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: DAL TOUR DE BRETAGNE CON UNA VITTORIA

ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: FROM THE TOUR DE BRETAGNE WITH A VICTORY

Bad luck has once again taken place, but the last trip of the season to France at the Tour de Bretagne for Androni Giocattoli Sidermec will remain to be remembered anyway and above all for a victory, good placings and yet another proof of character of the team. Success brought Leonardo Marchiori with a good sprint in the fifth stage of the transalpine race which started last Monday and ended yesterday after seven fractions. Before, it was Marchiori himself who finished twice in the top-10 with a seventh and an eighth place. In sixth place, however, Nicola Venchiarutti had finished in the third stage, then forced, due to a crash, to retire. Same fate befell Mattia Viel. Finally, yesterday in an insidious stage Filippo Tagliani was good, just out of the top-10 (11°). The intern Rocchetta also starred in the French week, good at getting into some attacking action. On the French race (Uci 2.2), where Gian Paolo Cheula was leading the team, here is the comment of the team manager Gianni Savio: «Another success has arrived in France, after those in the summer of Santiago Umba and Jefferson Cepeda in the Tour d’Alsace and the Tour de Savoie. As in the case of Umba, another new professional, Leonardo Marchiori, who once again proves the validity of our youth project, established himself».

Un Tour de Bretagne que nos hará mejores – Equipo Kern Pharma

El Tour de Bretagne (Francia, UCI 2.2, 20-26/09) concluyó este fin de semana con dos etapas jalonadas de repechos, bellísimas por su exigencia y por la enorme variedad de alternativas que ofrecían a los corredores para expresarse. El sábado triunfó en Fougères el alemán Wolf (BAI) con una cabalgada lejana, mientras el domingo fue Andersen (DDS) quien sacó el mayor partido del circuito final de Dinan. La general acabó en manos del local Le Ny (FYB). Siguiendo la tónica del resto de la vuelta, los corredores del Equipo Kern Pharma estuvieron activos sin acierto, buscando protagonismo sin hallarlo más allá de las clasificaciones, con Ibon Ruiz y Martí Márquez entre los veinte primeros de la general en la que fue la última carrera de Enrique Sanz como ciclista profesional.

No nos han salido las cosas como esperábamos”, admite Pablo Urtasun, director deportivo del Equipo Kern Pharma. “Sin embargo, creo que merece la pena venir a carreras como el Tour de Bretagne. Son desafíos a los que no estamos acostumbrados, con recorridos sinuosos en los que la colocación es clave, diferentes a lo que afrontan los corredores españoles ya desde sub23. Cuesta competir y disputar aquí, pero a la vez es una gran oportunidad de aprender. Aunque el resultado no nos haya acompañado y ahora mismo nos cueste creerlo, esta carrera nos ha aportado muchísimo y de cara al futuro nos hará mejores”.

El Equipo Kern Pharma reanudará este mismo martes su actividad competitiva con la disputa de la CRO Race (Croacia, UCI 2.1, 28/09-03/10), ronda nacional croata que se prolongará hasta el domingo. En un segundo frente de competición, una delegación farmacéutica se desplazará hasta la Bretaña gala para disputar dos pruebas de un día: La Route Adélie de Vitré (Francia, UCI 1.1, 01/10), el viernes, y la Classic Loire Atlantique (Francia, UCI 1.1, 02/10), el sábado.

ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: MARCHIORI VINCE ALLO SPRINT AL TOUR DE BRETAGNE

Con una bella volata Leonardo Marchiori (foto Philippe Le Cocq – DirectVelo) ha vinto oggi la quinta tappa del Tour de Bretagne. Il neoprofessionista dell’Androni Giocattoli Sidermec ha superato tutti nella Châteaubriant-Boisgervilly di 217 chilometri. Al secondo posto nello sprint di gruppo il neozelandese Gate e al terzo il belga Fretin.
Per il 23enne Marchiori, che già aveva sfiorato il successo in primavera e al Tour de Bretagne aveva già colto due piazzamenti nella top-10, è la prima vittoria della carriera. Per l’Androni Giocattoli Sidermec la dodicesima della stagione.
La giornata segnata dal bel successo di Marchiori, per l’Androni Giocattoli Sidermec purtroppo ha fatto registrare, cause cadute, i ritiri di Nicola Venchiarutti e Mattia Viel.
Il Tour de Bretagne domani proporrà la sesta e penultima tappa (Quédillac-Fougères di 164 chilometri).

Martin set to go to ninth Tour de France and return to Mûr de Bretagne

Let’s go back to 2018 when Dan Martin attacks with 1.2 kilometers to the finish line on the Mûr de Bretagne. His competitors try to follow but give up. Martin, being chased by Pierre Latour and, a few moments later, by Alejandro Valverde, looks back a few times in the last hundred meters. He is too strong, his opponents come too late.

It is revenge for 2015 when Martin was beaten by Alexis Vuillermoz on that very same climb. “I thought I would give it a try, so I did, and the legs kept going,” he would say about his 2018 success after celebrating over the line.

In 2021, Dan Martin will return to the Mûr de Bretagne (stage 2), as he is selected for his ninth Tour de France, this time in the #BlueAndWhite colors of Israel Start-Up Nation.

About the Mûr, he says, “It is indeed a climb that suits me and that I like. I am looking forward to returning to it.”

The Irishman, a stage winner in all three Grand Tours since the Giro of this year, will have a free role in Israel Start-Up Nation’s team. He can rely on the support of his teammates on stages like the one on day two in the Tour.

Having the Giro in the legs does not feel like a disadvantage for the climber. Martin elaborates, “With the right balance of training and recovery, I think having done the Giro can be beneficial, rather than a disadvantage.”

“Together with Paulo Saldanha from PowerWatts, I feel like we found that right balance very well.”

“I took training a little bit easier after the Giro, and I have done more intensity over the last few trainings. I feel recovered and ready to race,” the two-time stage winner in the Tour de France says.

“Racing my ninth Tour de France is something I was planning from the beginning of the season and I am happy that I am racing it, especially as it brings me back to the Mûr.”
