Another stage for Gerolsteiner

By Susan Westemeyer

The second stage winner was Gerolsteiner, the third stage winner was Gerolsteiner. The boys in baby blue seem to take turns winning stages in the Rheinland-Pfalz Rundfahrt. Friday in the third stage it was Heinrich Haussler's turn to win, while teammate and previous day's winner Rene Haselbacher retained the leader's jersey.

Three riders escaped and stayed away for 88 kilometres. Frantisek Rabon (T-Mobile), Juan Jose Oroz (Kaiku) and Jean-Claude Lebeau (Landbouwkrediet) never got more than about a two minute lead, though. The whole Kaiku team was very active the whole stage, testing Gerolsteiner's control with constant attacks.

A chasing group of about 30 caught the escapees shortly before entering Bad Marienberg, where the finish line was. Haussler took the sprint ahead of Pablo Urtasun Perez (Kaiku) and Marco Serpellini (Unibet). Haselbacher finished tenth in the same time as the winner. "Actually I wanted to prepare the sprint for 'Hasi' but the hole was too big and he didn't get by," said Haussler.

The finish was marred by a crash several hundred meters before the finish, which was held up Haselbacher. The most prominent victim was T-Mobile's Thomas Ziegler, who managed to make it across the finish line but was taken to the hospital for x-rays. The team later announced that nothing was broken, but that his left shoulder and hip were covered with bruises and scrapes. Ziegler dropped from second overall to third, and the team hopes that he will be able to ride Saturday.
