Albasini doubles up at Tour de Romandie

Swiss rider beats Alaphilippe to extend overall lead

A case of déjà vu all over again on stage 3 of the Tour de Romandie, as Michael Albasini (Orica-GreenEdge) out manoeuvred Julian Alaphilippe (Etixx-QuickStep) in a reduced bunch sprint to land his second successive win and double his overall lead into the bargain.

The rolling 172-kilometre trek from Moutier to Porrentruy featured four categorised climbs and a long, fast descent towards the finish line. In short, it was a day typical of the Tour de Romandie – too tough for the pure sprinters but not quite difficult enough for the general classification contenders to make the difference. When the final climb of the Côte de Lure failed to splinter the leading group, a sprint was inevitable, despite a flurry of attacks on the drop towards the finish.

Albasini helped himself to three very similar stages last year and after his win in Saint-Imier on Wednesday, he was the logical favourite here, although he would again face stiff opposition from Alaphilippe in the sprint. Alaphilippe got the better of Albasini on the Mur de Huy at Flèche Wallonne last week (though both men were soundly beaten by Alejandro Valverde), but Albasini has had the better of their exchanges on the flat finales in Switzerland.

Alaphilippe had Tony Martin and Rigoberto Uran to shepherd him through the final kilometre but that impressive Etixx-QuickStep train was outflanked by the canny Simon Gerrans who dived ahead of Uran to lead into the final left-hand bend. Albasini, meanwhile, was glued to Alaphilippe’s wheel, and he peeled off just as the young Frenchman began to open his sprint.

Albasini’s fierce acceleration saw him open an immediate gap, and he crossed the line with time to savour his win. Alaphilippe came home in second place, while Damiano Caruso (BMC) was a – very – distant third, just ahead of Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida).

"It’s really great what my team did for me today," Albasini said afterwards. "They did a really great job. Ivan Santaromita controlled the attacks in the finale and then I had one of the best riders in the peloton to lead me out in Simon Gerrans. I knew this was a tough stage, but I know it could suit me too, because not a lot of fast riders were going to be able to make over the climbs."

Albasini’s win netted him a ten-second time bonus that has doubled his lead atop the general classification. He is now 20 seconds clear of his teammate Santaromita, while Chris Froome (Sky) – who finished alongside Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Nairo Quintana (Movistar) in the front group – remains in third place, also at 20 seconds.

How it unfolded

The day’s early break went clear in the opening kilometres and featured Kristof Vandewalle (Trek Factory Racing), Cheng Ji (Giant-Alpecin) and Brian Bulgac (LottoNL-Jumbo) and the trio built up a maximum lead of seven minutes over a peloton that was led by Orica-GreenEdge and Team Sky.

After passing the finish line in Porrentruy for the first time after 103 kilometres, the complexion of the race altered on the twin second category climbs of the Col de la Croix and the Col des Rangiers. One by one, Cheng Ji, Bulgac and Vandewalle were picked off by a peloton that had been whittled down to fewer than 50 riders by Astana and Movistar’s forcing, and it was Nairo Quintana who led over the Rangiers.

The final ascent of the Côte de Lure whittled the bunch down still further but didn’t trigger any telling attacks from the overall contenders, though the Astana, Movistar and Tinkoff-Saxo squads all maintained a watching brief near the front.

On the descent, however, the race finally sparked into life, as Darwin Atapuma (BMC) forged clear in the company of Winner Anacona (Movistar) and Maxime Mederel (Europcar) with 22 kilometres to go. Their effort would peter out five kilometres later, but it had the effect of stretching the reduced bunch to breaking point and encouraging others to try their luck.

Tony Martin joined fellow strongmen Rohan Dennis (BMC) and Ramunas Navardauskas (Cannondale-Garmin) in one dangerous move, before Quintana himself clipped off the front with 14 kilometres remaining. He was joined by Andrey Zeits (Astana), however, and the move lost momentum when Nibali’s teammate refused to come through and help.

Not to be outdone, Nibali himself launched a speculative attempt as soon as Quintana came back, while Rigoberto Uran had a brief rally off the front when the road flattened out in the final six kilometres. From there, Giant-Alpecin’s Georg Preidler took up the reins in support of Luka Mezgec. The Slovenian was ostensibly the fastest man in the leading group, but seemed to lose his way – and his train – on the technical run-in.

Instead, it was the strength of street knowledge that won out, as Gerrans took over in the final kilometre and Albasini delivered his lines on cue.
