Kazakhstani rider Assan Bazayev (Astana) has triumphed in the first stage of the Tour of Germany, raced in wet conditions between Düsseldorf and Bielefeld. Bazayev narrowly beat Danilo Napolitano (Lampre-Fondital) and Erik Zabel (Milram) in a bunch sprint, with 136 riders finishing in the same time. It was the Astana team's first ever win since its sponsor changed from Liberty Seguros-Wurth. The race lead stayed with prologue winner Vladimir Gusev (Discovery Channel), who holds a 1 second advantage over Linus Gerdemann (T-Mobile).

"It is the most important victory of my career," said Bazayev, whose last victory dates back to 2004 when he won the Tour of Hellas. "I am not a pure sprinter, but I am fast and I climb pretty well. Today I had confidence, though it was difficult to me to hold the pace of the pack on the last climb. The key to the victory was to hold Erik Zabel's wheel. The German stopped in the last corner and I kept going, passing Napolitano."

Team captain Alexandre Vinokourov was also important in helping Bazayev to victory. "The president of Kazakhstan wants us to win two stages here," Vino told Bazayev just before the finish.

How it unfolded

The 198 km stage began shortly after midday in Düsseldorf with the weather just as bad as it was yesterday: rain and wind greeted the 176 riders, although at least the wind was behind them for much of the day. The peloton stuck together until km 17, when local boy Torsten Schmidt (Wiesenhof) launched the first attack. He was chased by various riders until the peloton eventually absorbed everyone after 25 km.

After 33 km, Andreas Matzbacher (Vorarlberg) and Anton Luengo (Euskaltel) were able to get clear. The peloton allowed them their freedom, and their advantage grew to 6'10 after 74 km. Andreas Matzbacher was the virtual leader, starting the day only 43 seconds behind Gusev, but Discovery had the situation well under control. On the first climb after 86 km, the tempo lifted in the peloton and the gap came down to 4'50. Luengo was first over the climb ahead of Matzbacher.

The race passed near Erik Zabel's home town of Unna, and he was allowed some distance by the peloton to greet his family, picking up third place in the first mountain sprint in the process. But the pleasantries didn't last long, especially with the strong rain and wind that had set in for the day. Crashes were common, but fortunately not too serious.

At halfway, the two leaders still had 5'30, but the peloton was starting to chase a little harder, with Milram coming up to help Discovery. Matzbacher took the sprint points in Hamm (km 122) ahead of Luengo, with Gerald Ciolek grabbing third place from the bunch. The order was the same at the final sprint after 173.4 km, except that leader Gussev was able to take third. The two leaders were caught a couple of kilometres later after some 140 km in front.

Quick.Step and AG2R got to the front of the bunch in the final 15 km, trying to keep their sprinters in position before the final climb in Steinhagen with 7 km to go. Stefan Schumacher (Gerolsteiner) attacked and was first over the top ahead of Andy Schleck (CSC) and Francesco Failli (Liquigas), but was unable to get away. In the final four kilometres, it was Lampre and T-Mobile in front. An attack with 2 km to go by Sebastian Lang looked good, despite being hindered by a motorbike. He survived until the final kilometre, when the peloton wound it up for the sprint. Danilo Napolitano looked good for a while, but in the end it was Assan Bazayev who came around the Italian for a big win.
