Wegmann wins tough finish

By Daniel Marszalek in Szklarska Poreba

German Fabian Wegmann (Gerolsteiner), winner of the mountains competition in the 2004 Giro d'Italia, won the first hilly stage of the 62nd Tour de Pologne, beating Italian fastman Filippo Pozzato (Quick Step) and Slovenian Uros Murn (Phonak) in the tough finish in Szklarska Poreba. Pozzato's teammate Luca Paolini managed to defend the leader's yellow jersey. He now leads the race with eight seconds advantage over Wegmann and twelve on Pozzato.

It was a rainy morning in Wroclaw where 149 riders prepared themselves for the start to the first hilly stage of this year's Tour de Pologne, a 212 kilometre long leg to Szklarska Poreba on the western side of the Karkonosze mountains. Luckily, the sun came out just in time for the honorary start. After several unsuccessful attempts to break away from the pack, started first by Piotr Chmielewski (Intel-Action) and Freddy Bichot (Francaise des Jeux), and then by another Intel's rider Jaroslaw Zarebski with Nicolas Inaudi (Cofidis), the third try proved to be the lucky one. This one was started at km 48 by two Belgians from Davitamon-Lotto: Wim Van Huffel and Johann Van Summeren. Italian Leonardo Caneschi (Miche) was in hot pursuit of the two leaders, but was not able to bridge the gap to them.

As both Belgians over the first four days between Gdansk and Leszno lost more than 15 minutes to race leader Luca Paolini (Quick Step), they were not dangerous for the race favourites. This fact helped them to build a substantial lead on the peloton before the real mountains appeared on the race course. Top sprinter Daniele Bennati (Lampre) retired from the race at km 104 at the feed zone near Piotrowice. At this point, the leading duo had 6'20 advantage on the main bunch. At the top of the first real ascent of the 62nd TdP, Kapela (km 135), Van Summeren was first just ahead of his teammate Van Huffel with Bartosz Huzarski (Intel-Action), Przemyslaw Niemec (Miche) and Italian veteran Davide Bramati (Quick Step) taking the next places.

On the descent to Jelenia Gˇra, Huzarski and Niemec tried to attack from the peloton but with no success, while the two Belgians from Davitamon reached this town with 7'20 advantage on the still almost complete main bunch. Meanwhile, it was announced that today's stage, just the ones to Bydgoszcz and Leszno, would be shortened. With one lap around Szklarska Poreba less, this reduced the day's distance from 212 to 200,3 kilometres. The real chase behind the two leaders had finally begun, even with Liquigas-Bianchi riders setting the pace for ProTour leader Danilo Di Luca. Therefore Van Huffel and Van Summeren crossed the finish line in Szklarska Poreba with 35 kilometres to go 5'50 ahead of the bunch. Nearly 12 kilometres later, during the second visit to the finish line, the gap was already just 3'22, while the peloton was reduced to only some 40 riders. Race leader Luca Paolini was close to the front of the group, which was led by Di Luca's mountain domestiques, Croatian Vladimir Miholjevic and Italian Andrea NoŔ'.

Van Huffel and Van Summeren kept working together, but the Liquigas duo was much stronger in reducing gap to the leaders to just 1'24 on the penultimate crossing of the finish line. There was still the steep 2 km ascent to the mountain prize, then a dangerous descent to the main road linking Jelenia Gˇra and Szklarska Poreba, and finally a slightly uphill last 2300 meters to the finish line. Van Summeren entered the last kilometre alone with a couple of seconds advantage on the stretched leader's group. Unfortunately for the young Belgian, after some 150 kilometres at the front he was passed with just 300 metres to go, first by Dutchman Michael Boogerd (Rabobank) who tried a long finish, and soon after by Di Luca and the other top riders. Still neither Boogerd nor Di Luca were able to respond to the late charge by Fabian Wegmann, who won it clearly ahead of Filippo Pozzato and Uros Murn. Di Luca, together with Kim Kirchen (Fassa Bortolo), Boogerd and young Thomas Dekker (Rabobank), all lost two seconds to the winning German, who gave his team first of two Pro Tour victories in the space of a quarter of an hour (minutes later Heinrich Haussler won the 19th stage of the Vuelta a Espa˝a).

Tomorrow, the Tour de Pologne is going to Karpacz with six ascents to Karpacz Gˇrny (Upper Karpacz), finishing on the Orlinek at 800 metres above sea level. This will be the Queen stage of this race, with more than 3000 metres of elevation in total.
