Englishman Jonathan Dayus from the Norwegian Team Ringerike has repeated his triumph from last year at the top of Ringkollen, the "l'Alpe d'Huez" of Norway. He outsprinted Frenchman Eric Leblacher (Crédit Agricole) and Valery Kobzarenko from the Ukraine. He also took the lead with only one and two seconds advantage respectively on the two men able to hold his wheel on the steep 8 km climb.

"I was fresh at the end because I didn't have any work to do before the climb. We rode really well as a team, always with someone in the front," Dayus explained.

This "someone" was his Australian mate Simon Gerrans, who was a part of a five man breakaway with Yannick Rebouilleau (Nantes 44), Morten Christiansen (Bærum), Joachim Bøhler (Ringerike SK) and Martin Hebik (Sparta Praha). They rode ahead of the bunch for 120 kilometres, never had more than three minutes lead, and Gerrans was still able to continue on his own for a little while before the peloton, led by Crédit Agricole, bridged the gap.

When they hit Ringkollen, another Australian, team pursuit world champion Luke Roberts attacked and Mads Kaggestad, who is the defending champion in this race, followed him. "He killed me, the Norwegian neo-pro said. But he also killed himself."

Kaggestad was quite happy with the way his teammates rode. He likes the aggressive style of Leblacher who is the king of the mountains in this race and only one second down on Dayus in GC, whereas Yohan Charpenteau is ranked 4th, only three seconds behind.

It looks like there will be a battle between Crédit Agricole and Team Ringerike in the last two stages. They both started with only five riders, as the pro team from Norway had to forget about Christopher Myhre, who was hit by a truck and is recovering in an hospital but he's OK with nothing broken. "Unfortunately we lost our captain Gabriel Rasch in a crash today", Dayus added.

"I'm strong enough to win the overall, but it will be hard with so few teammates," he told the TV commentator who called him "Mister Dayus". He was delighted of course, but not very much of a showman. Has he adopted the cold style of the Nordic people who welcomed him in their team this year? "Here it's not my home but it's my hill," he declared.

In the May issue of Cycle Sport magazine, 'the voice of cycling' Phil Liggett wrote: "Britain has a new professional in Jonathan Dayus from Worcester, a talented rider who has virtually bypassed the British system by living and racing in Nantes throughout his amateur days. [...] although he is already 28, feel he has a lot to offer his sport in the immediate years ahead. [...] watch out for a Brit called Dayus who can climb and time trial."

Racing for Nantes 44, he won in Ringkollen one year ago. That's where he got to be mentioned by the Norwegian team called Team Krone at the time. They signed him with one goal: to win Ringkollen again and if possible the overall classification of the Ringerike Grand Prix as well. He didn't feel any pressure but he's on his way to make it, even though he's aware of the competition with Crédit Agricole, Team Bianchi, which hasn't given up its high ambitions, and Kobzarenko. The latter also rode for the Nantes 44 organisation five years ago, before Dayus did. He's now a teammate of Mario Cipollini at Domina Vacanze.

"But there was a hole in my calendar so I came here as a mixed team with Maestro Nella, Kob explained. "I wanted to win today but I had a problem with my chain."

There are more hills to come and the Ringerike Grand Prix is far from being over. A huge crowd is expected on Sunday in Hønefoss to support the Englishman that everyone in Norway appreciates.
