19 year-old German takes copycat victory

Gussev retains lead on countback

Just as he did at the German national championships two years ago, 19 year-old sprint sensation Gerald Ciolek once again upstaged his bigger-named rivals in a fiercely-contested bunch gallop, coming home triumphant on the third stage of the Tour of Germany.

Entering the finishing straight in the town of Schweinfurt, located in the heart of central Germany, all eyes were on Lampre-Fondital's Danilo Napolitano and Milram man Erik Zabel. The pressure was on both to notch a win, which may have caused the Italian to go too early - but just when the latter appeared poised for victory, Wiesenhof Akud's Gerald Ciolek blasted out of the bunch with head bobbing and pedals stomping, powering past Zabel and T-Mobile's André Greipel, who finished third.

As a result of Zabel's four second places on the day, which included three intermediate sprints out on the road, the race almost saw a change of lead, but not quite. Discovery Channel's Vladimir Gusev is now on equal time with the evergreen German, while the rest of yesterday's top ten slipped down a notch.

Rounding out the top five were a pair of young Australians, Luke Roberts (Team CSC) and Mark Renshaw (Credit Agricole). Together with Ciolek and stage one victor Assan Bazayev from Kazakhstan, the Deutschland Tour has shown there's a wealth of new sprinting talent ready to emerge.

Today's mostly-flat stage from Witzenhausen to Schweinfurt featured a day-long breakaway by Saunier Duval-Prodir's Marco Pinotti, who escaped shortly before the 40 kilometre mark. The Italian soon built a sizeable lead of nine-minutes plus, but the length of the stage and up-and-down parcours eventually put paid to his chances, and it was peloton groupé with 20 kilometres to go, leading to the inevitable bunch sprint.

Tomorrow's fourth stage from Heidenheim to Bad Tölz doesn't pose any major obstacles, and is tipped to be another one for the fast-men. Provided Team CSC's Jens Voigt doesn't have anything to say about it, of course.

How it unfolded

Another sprinter's stage was on the cards, as the 169 riders left in this year's Tour of Germany prepared themselves for a 202 kilometre journey south, from Witzenhausen to Schweinfurt.

It didn't take too long before the first attack of the day went, but none stuck until just before a quarter to one. After 35 kilometres, Saunier Duval-Prodir's Marco Pinotti leapt out of the field, and with no reaction taking place, the last year's Italian TT champ already gained a little over two minutes' lead by the first sprint in Treffurt (km 47,8).

142nd on GC at the start of the day and almost nine and a half minutes down on race leader Vladimir Gusev, the Russian's Discovery Channel team was content to leave Pinotti out in the open. And as the kilometres ticked by, Pinotti was happy to be there, with the Italian reclaiming virtually all of his 9'23 deficit to Gusev by the first mountain prime at Elsenach after 80 kilometres.

By the second and final intermediate sprint in Wasungen (km 116,1), the Italian was still looking good, although the natural momentum of the bunch had contained his lead to roughly six minutes. However, it was the upcoming climb of the Henneberg that would provide the most accurate indication on Pinotti's chances. At that point, marking 141,5 kilometres covered, Saunier Duval man was clearly tiring, with the peloton just three minutes in arrears.

A wry smile to the camera was enough of a sign that Pinotti knew his time out front was numbered. Approaching the 25 kilometres to go mark, Swiss rider Pascal Hungerbühler from Team Vorarlberg went straight past him, with a series of counterattacks following behind. None were successful, though, leading to a complete regrouping and the expected bunch gallop in Schweinfurt.

Before the finish, a few more tried their luck, but Lampre-Fondital weren't letting anything go, hoping to set things up for their man Danilo Napolitano. In the final kilometres, the pink and blue clad team didn't have things all their way, with no team in control as the peloton zoomed under the kilometre to go kite.

Napolitano hit out too early with 250 metres to go, so too did young Australian sprinter Mark Renshaw from Credit Agricole - but no-one expected to see Wiesenhof Akud's Gerald Ciolek hold off the likes of Erik Zabel and André Greipel in the last dash for cash. Yet that's exactly what he did.
