Miracle man O'Grady takes biggest win ever in Hamburg

Cautious Rebellin keeps World Cup lead

As the strains of "Advance Australia Fair", the national anthem of Australia echoed off the skyscrapers of across downtown Hamburg, an emotional Stuart O'Grady (Cofidis) happily climbed the podium to accept the winner's bouquet for his first World Cup win and the first men's World Cup victory by an Aussie (Phil Anderson's 1983 Amstel Gold win preceding the modern World Cup). "It's unbelievable", said a head shaking O'Grady after his victory today. Just five days short of his 31st birthday, the seemingly astonished O'Grady explained post-race that "I really had no idea how the form was today. I just used the right tactics at the finish, since I knew Rebellin and the others were after the World Cup. I felt good at the finish and just got the perfect run."

O'Grady rode a simply superb sprint today in Hamburg to come around the outside of last year's HEW winner and World Cup champion Paolo Bettini and World Champion Igor Astarloa to win. A former World Track champion, O'Grady used his well-honed tactical sense and tremendous finishing speed to smoke the other fast finishers. "It's the biggest victory of my career...it's magic," he exclaimed.

Before he got his awards, Stuey accepted a bear hug and a backslap from his best mate and super domestique Matt "Whitey" White, who did massive work today to close the gap for Stuey to come back to the front of the race in the final kilometres. Today was special for Whitey, as the Sydneysider crashed out of the Tour de France just hours before the prologue in Liege and couldn't help his best mate O'Grady battle for the green jersey at the Tour. Today in Hamburg was surely a double satisfaction for both Cofidis men.

It's been a tough 2004 season for the boyish looking freckle-faced O'Grady. His beloved grandfather died early in the year, while Stuey then got down to business early with third at Milano-San Remo in March. Then a tough race crash where he cracked three ribs took the Adelaide man out of action for Flanders. While he was laid up, the Cofidis drug scandal broke and O'Grady was caught in the middle of a major mess that suspended his team and made things quite uncertain for his future. But once Cofidis boss François Migraine cleared up his team's headaches, Stuey came charging out of the box with an excellent ride and stage win in the Dauphiné Liberé in June. O'Grady had a solid Tour De France, with a stage win in Chartres, his first in six years.

O'Grady clearly has great form coming out of the Tour De France. Already an Olympic silver and bronze medalist in track cycling, O'Grady is looking ahead thirteen days to the Olympic Road Race on August 14, where he must now be considered a strong favourite for the title, along with his podium partners Bettini and Astarloa. "I'd like to think about the World Cup, but everything's just concentrating on the Olympics from now on...but today was amazing."

With his 100 points earned today, O'Grady moved into 4th (150 points) behind leader Rebellin (232), Paolo Bettini (168) and Oscar Freire (167) .

How it unfolded

On a warm, sunny day after 15,000 riders had participated in the morning's Gran Fondo event (Jedermann Tour), 179 riders took the start in the centre of Hamburg near St.Michael's Church for the first of August's three World Cup races. Plus, this last World Cup edition of the HEW Cyclassics had special significance with the Olympic Road Race in Athens 13 days from today. The 250km course had been changed slightly to make it harder, with a 170km figure-eight course around greater Hamburg, followed by an 80km circuit that incorporates three 12.7km laps with a total of five ascents of the steep 600m Waseberg, which always has a decisive effect on the relatively flat race.

After a series of early attacks, by 20km a quartet had extricated itself from the peloton and began to gain ground. The escape consisted of Lars Michaelsen (CSC), Stefan Radochla (Illes Balears), Robert Lochowski (Wiesenhof) and Rik Reinerink (Chocolade Jacques). After 65km, the four front runners had gained 15'00 on the disinterested peloton, but the quarter of an hour lead got the attention of the magenta fury of T-Mobile team. The top German squad went to the front with the help of Rabobank, Quick.Step, and Gerolsteiner, and rode just hard enough tempo to pull back most of the lead. With 70km to go and the chasers at 2'00, tall Dutchman Reinerink realized that the rest of the break was going to get caught and dumped the others. The towering Chocolade man was finally caught with 55km to race and the real action was soon to start as the final circuits commenced.

All the top teams were trying to maintain position going into the second time up the Waseberg, where Gerolsteiner was defending for its World Cup leader Davide Rebellin. The Italian had something to prove today: his non-selection to the Italian Olympic squad had angered the usually quiet Veronese who was determined to show Italian selector Ballerini he had made a mistake. But the blue bubble water boys were battling with the blue and silver Quick.Step-Davitamon team of last year's HEW winner and World Cup champion Paolo Bettini.

After the Waseberg with 42km to go, CSC was on the attack with Bartoli, then Høj, but T-Mobile and Quick.Step were covering all moves at that point. More jockeying for position on the next lap approaching the Waseberg, where Bettini decided to test his legs, and was covered by Di Luca, Pozzato and Rebellin. The distance and the increasing intensity of attacks allowed a big group of 18 to get a gap of 15 seconds, including all the favourites, but Gerolsteiner and T-Mobile didn't like the odds and pulled the group back.

On the penultimate ascent of Waseberg, it was Di Luca on the attack, followed by World Champ Astarloa, World Cup leader Rebellin, with Bettini, Ullrich and Italian champ Cristian Moreni also there. This move was eventually neutralized, but not without a strong attack by Axel Merckx and some brilliant countermoves from Bettini, who was always closely marked by Ullrich. Once again at HEW, it would be the final assault on Waseberg with 16 km to go that would provide the decisive attack.

Gerolsteiner had Lang and Hondo on the front riding hard tempo to set up Rebellin, but as the front group of 35 riders made the right turn at the foot of the Waseberg for the final time up the steep ramp, Jan Ullrich made a strong attack up the left side of the road in a huge gear, provoking a strong reaction up the middle of the road by World Champion Astarloa. Ullrich faded as Bettini and Rebellin came across and with 15km to go, these race favourites had a gap. But eventually it was closed down by seven other chasers and the ten-strong front group was subjected to another strong attack by Merckx. FDJeux.com's Gilbert was also active, but when a big group of 20 more riders bridged across and made the front peloton 30 strong again, it was just up to O'Grady to make his race winning move around the outside for the win after Gerolsteiner led out the sprint.
