Platt and Böhme win opening TransAlp stage

Karl Platt and Tim Böhme clinched the opening stage of the 2012 TransAlp from Oberammergau, Germany, to Imst, Austria on Saturday,, thus proving that the team management made the right decision with its new pairings. Team Bulls 1 mastered the 98km and 2,215 meters in elevation as fastest duo claiming the yellow leaders' jerseys in the time of 3:30.07.

The newly formed mixed team with Centurion-Vaude and BiXS iXS riders Markus Kaufmann and Thomas Stoll finished second, more than two minutes back.

Hannes Genze and Andreas Kugler, another German-Swiss combo riding for Multivan Merida Biking, rounded out the podium in third. However, Genze and Kugler already lost more than four minutes on this year's first TransAlp leaders, who had attacked right at the first little climb of the eight-day event up to Mäuerle. Only Kaufmann and Stoll were able to keep up the pace and worked well together with their rivals thus keeping their lead on the pursuers constantly over some 30 seconds until the first real peak of the 2012 TransAlp.

After the breakaways had entered the ascent to Marienbergjoch (1,810m), the defending champions Urs Huber and Konny Looser caught up. But after Kaufmann and Stoll upped the tempo again, two-time U23 European Marathon Champion Looser struggled being forced to lose contact again. In the end, the Swiss high profile racers of Team Stöckli had to settle for the seventh rank with a gap of 9:24.

"Vaude and BiXS iXS did speed up things in the climb and we held the pace," said Böhme. "In the downhill, we finally were able to break away," said the 30-year-old after his second career TransAlp stage win.

Platt, who is four years older, said, "We pushed it really hard in the downhill. Today was just amazing. We were both in super good shape. Coming back like this after a so far screwed up season is phenomenal and one of the best feelings I have ever had."

Nevertheless, the seven-time TransAlp winner and his teammate Böhme also took advantage of a flat Stoll had to handle right after the peak of Marienbergjoch. "We definitely lost some time but it could have been worse. Even so, I'm pretty pleased with the result. We work well together and are pretty strong in the climbs. I hope that we can benefit from that over the course of the next days," said Stoll.

Landtwing and Bigham dominate women's field

In the women's race, Switzerland's Milena Landtwing (Centurion-Vaude) and Brit Sally Bigham (Topeak Ergon Racing) met the expectations. Both arrived in Imst after 4:04.40, thus taking over the lead in the women's table with an advantage of more than 16 minutes on runner-ups Catherine Williamson and Louise Stopforth of Bizhub-Fcf (4:20.50).

"We have been riding together several times now and really get together pretty well," said Landtwing who also added that, "it went pretty smooth."

Rank #3 went to Angelika Niklaus and Andrea Kuster of Swiss team Metz-Kraftwerk (4:50.51), who pedaled more than 45 minutes longer than the leading women.

De Bertolis and Deho are best 80+ team

In the 80+ team category, Italy's very own Massimo de Bertolis and Marzio Deho demonstrated in an impressive style that both are - although being already 40+ - not part of the old guards yet. The former marathon world champion and his fellow countryman crossed the finish line in Imst as overall sixth ranked and thus fastest master team (3:36.13).

Team Adamello Ski thus has already an advantage of almost seven minutes on second-ranked Andreas Laner and Johann Grasegger of Team Scott (3:43.10). 2011 master class TransAlp champions from Austria, Silvio Wieltschnig and Heinz Zörweg of Cube Factory, came in third (3:48.06).

Team Scott successful in senior master category

Among teams with a total age of 100+, the main favorites for the 2012 TransAlp title in the senior master class, Silvano Janes and Walter Platzgummer, did not allow themselves to be deterred by the fact of being some five minutes behind at the intermediate time taken at half of the climb to Marienbergjoch.

The two Italians of Team Scott attacked and were rewarded for their bravery crossing the finish line first after 4:03.11 in the saddle - only 1,6 seconds ahead of their so far leading rivals from Switzerland Bärti Bucher and Renato Burch.

Team BiXS Suisse lost the finish sprint thus being edged off to second in 4:03.13. Former senior master TransAlp winner Georg Niggl and his teammate Walter Perkmann of Craft & Friends 7 finished in third position (4:14.44).

Black Tusk mixed duo takes over lead

Katharina Alberti and Matthias Gärtner of the German mixed team Black Tusk Racing by toMotion have earned the orange leader's jerseys in a total time of 4:08.33 and have thus gained a pretty comfortable lead on Swiss mountain bikers Antonia Wipfli and Patrick Jauch of Team Gisler (4:11.0). Italian team Press Riva del Garda with Lorenza Menapace and Claudio Segata came in third (4:16.58).

The second stage of the TransAlp leads over 80km and 3,274 meters in elevation through Tyrol and thus from Imst, Austria, to Ischgl, Austria, on Sunday.
