Wilkinson seizes stage win and yellow jersey

Game over for most of the main field. British Ian Wilkinson (Team Halfords Bike Hut) and another former mountain bike specialist Simon Richardson (Rapha Condor) proved strongest on today's rain-lashed, wind-buffeted second stage of the FBD RŠs, putting paid to the overall classification ambitions of most of the peloton.

The duo were clearly the best of an eight-man group which had gone clear just 10 kilometres into the 178-kilometre stage, staving off the chase of those behind and ultimately drawing far, far ahead of their pursuers. At the end of a tough day of racing Wilkinson hit the finish line in Cobh 14 seconds ahead of Richardson, and a full three minutes and three seconds ahead of another former breakaway companion Mads Christensen (Team Designa Kokken).

Rune Jogert (Team Giant-Veolia), Jan Barta (ARBÖ-KTM-Junkers), Bert Roesems (Cinelli-Down Under) and Darren Lapthorne (Rapha Condor) were a further 35 seconds back, with Ole Joregen Jensen (Team Giant-Veoila) the only other rider to stay within four minutes of the new race leader. The rest of the field was at least seven minutes back, with the peloton - and yellow jersey wearer Nico Eeckhout (An Post-Sean Kelly Team) finishing nine minutes and 45 seconds down.

There was little joy for Irish riders in terms of a high placing. David O'Loughlin (An Post-Sean Kelly Team) had been part of the original break, as had Paul Healion (Irish National Team), and was ahead with Wilkinson, Richardson and Christensen with approximately 30 kilometres remaining. However, he had not been working as much as the others and became caught up in an argument with Christensen, who stalled repeatedly and tried to take him out of the back of the break.

Wilkinson and Richardson put the hammer down and left the other two behind; Christensen hung on for third, but O'Loughlin faded to eventually finish eleventh, just over seven minutes back. He was best of the home crowd but, along with most of the peloton, now looks to have very little chance of winning the race overall.

Wilkinson, however, is in a very strong position. He may be just 19 seconds ahead of Richardson in the general classification but the next rider, Christensen, is three minutes and eight seconds back, and the rest of the field is even further in arrears. While recognising that taking the lead so early is a difficult task, he is also relishing the challenge.

"I am looking forward to tomorrow, getting into the mountains," he said "That will probably thin the field out a bit more. I am not a mountain goat but I like to think I can get over a climb or two.

"Today was a tough day, it worked out well for me. There was a lot of rain and wind, it got really cold in the break but I had a rain cape on and that helped. After the main climb of the day it seemed like a group was coming across to us but it never really progressed. We got rid of a couple of other riders on the last King of the Mountains and kept going until the end.

"We came left on the cobbles and then turned right...the road kicked up and I dropped it down into the little ring and went away from him. I was pretty sure it would work out well as I was quite a bit stronger in a lot of places today. I know Simon from racing back home and it was a case of whoever had more left."

Like Wilkinson, Richardson is also a former mountain bike rider. He showed similar grit in tough conditions. "We went clear very early on, after perhaps 10 kilometres," he said. "It was a very hard day out there, there was a block headwind and we thought that we were going to be caught. But each time we pulled away again."

Richardson won stage four into Skibbereen last year and took the yellow jersey 24 hours later in Clonmel. He has a chance to do so again tomorrow, but will need to get the better of the rider who beat him today. Yet both will also need to be careful; they used a lot of energy today and are likely to be fatigued, and those who are left behind will do their utmost to attack, get clear, and haul themselves back into contention. That should make for some great racing.

What's next

The 2.2 ranked international event continues tomorrow with the longest stage, a 189-kilometre slog from Cobh to Cahirciveen. It is also the first mountain stage of the race. Although far from Alpine in nature, the profile should shake things up even more; it features the category three climb of Coolavokig, plus the first category pair of The Coom and Coomakista. The latter tops out 24 kilometres from the finish and will provide a perfect springboard for attacks.
