Thomas Voeckler

Thomas Voeckler emphatically wins Yorkshire stage three ahead of Nicolas Roche.

The Race: Here's the organizer's explanation of the day's racing:

Thomas Voeckler put in a stellar performance to claim the 2016 Tour de Yorkshire after last year's bitter-sweet third place. The Frenchman made hay of the queen stage from Middlesbrough to Scarborough with another of his signature rides. The 36-year-old jumped clear with Nicolas Roche 5 km before the line and outsprinted his breakaway companion to grab both the stage win and the overall victory. Voeckler was crowned champion of the second edition with 6'' to spare on Roche and 16'' on Anthony Turgis.

There were quite a few nervous faces at the start of the closing stage of the Tour de Yorkshire this morning. The 129-strong peloton faced a 198 km trek to Scarborough featuring no fewer than six climbs. The course and the various classifications up for grabs, including the blue-and-yellow leader's jersey, made Sunday's stage very promising.

A ten-man breakaway consisting of Holohan (WGN), Haas (DDD), Chetout (COF), Opie (ONE), Haller (KAT), Cronshaw (MGT), Slik, Van Der Lijke (ROP), Farazijn (TSV) and Wilkinson (GBR) formed just five kilometres into the stage. It took ten kilometres of frantic racing to convince the bunch to let them go, and their margin peaked at 2' 15" at km 24.

Haas beat Cronshaw and Chetout at the first intermediate sprint in Thirsk (km 52), with the peloton trailing 1' 35" behind. The first climb of the day, super-steep Sutton Bank, took things to a higher level and caused Wilkinson and Slik to be dropped and caught by the peloton shortly thereafter. Haas, first over the top, held a 2' 5" margin at this point. Blakey Ridge set the scene for another fierce battle, with Calmejane (DEN), Handley (ONE) and Moreno Sala (RAL) launching a counterattack. The lead group was soon joined by the trio, only to lose Opie and Cronshaw, who were soon reeled in by the peloton. Haas, Calmejane and Chetout's aggressive riding failed to make an impact, and the nine riders stuck together until the bunch brought them back into the fold at km 110.

Team Sky brought the hammer down, smashing the peloton apart and forcing an initial selection. Kennaugh led the bunch over the fearsome Grosmont climb, with teammates Rowe, Moscon, Roche and defending champion Nordhaug on his wheel. A few kilometres down the road, there were just nine units left in the lead group, with Yates, Juul Jensen (OGE), Kruijswijk (TLJ) and Pauwels (DDD) clinging to the five Sky men on the Yorkshire highlands. A second group of 17 riders including (BMC), Voeckler (DEN), Van Den Broeck (KAT) and Arndt (TGA) eventually managed to bridge over. Pauwels launched an attack on the next climb, but it was shut down.

Roche (SKY), Yates (OGE) and Kruijswijk (TLJ) went over the penultimate climb of the day, Harewood Dale, in first place and opened up a gap 25 km before the finish. The French duo of Voeckler (DEN) and Turgis (COF) made contact at km 176 and, with 10 km to go, it was obvious that the race would be decided among the five men in front, who held a one-minute gap on the chasing group with Nordhaug. Roche crowned the final climb, Oliver's Mount (km 192), in front and forged ahead, dragging Voeckler with him. The two riders used the descent to Scarborough to expand their gap. Their 7" margin at the last kilometre seemed sufficient. Voeckler, the wily 36-year-old, clung to his rival's wheel before unleashing a sprint to which Roche had no answer, while Adam Yates finished third.

Voeckler made amends for his second place in last year's opening stage to Scarborough and grabbed his second season victory after the Tour Cycliste International La Provence. The French rider's 43rd career win also catapulted him to the top of the general classification, where he succeeded Lars-Petter Nordhaug as champion of the race with 6" to spare on Roche and 16" on Turgis. The winner of the first stage, Dylan Groenewegen (TLJ), took home the points jersey, while Nathan Haas (DDD) was the best climber of the event.

Danny van Poppel hammers out a narrow stage win at Doncaster

The Race: Here's the story from stage winner Danny van Poppel's Team Sky.

Danny van Poppel edged out a superb sprint victory after a photo finish to stage two at the Tour De Yorkshire.

The Dutchman timed his run to perfection in Doncaster, squeezing down the left-hand side of the road to narrowly fend off race leader Dylan Groenewegen by the slenderest of margins.

His first victory in Team Sky colours also saw Van Poppel elevate himself up to second overall, six seconds back on compatriot Groenewegen (LottoNL-Jumbo) after a pair of chaotic sprints in the race's opening two days.

Team Sky were content to sit back for much of the event's 135.5km middle stage, before finally hitting the front as a group with 3.5km to go.

"The team did a great job, that's the first thing to say," said Van Poppel after the race. "We were really motivated. The last two kilometres it was raining and really hectic. The team did the best they could to really take care of me and then in the last few hundred metres Dylan came really close, but I just knew that I'd won. It was a hectic few minutes.

"I've had a knee injury and this is maybe my ninth or 10th race (this year). I really needed this victory. There have been some hard times but now I think I'm back! It's my first victory for Team Sky and it's really cool to ride for this team."
Gianni Moscon and Andy Fenn both finished inside the top 20 after strong work in the sprint, while Lars Petter Nordhaug and Nicolas Roche both sit at 16 seconds back heading into Sunday's deciding stage.

Dylan Groenewegen gets a clear win in Tour of Yorkshire stage 1

The Race: Here's the organizer's stage summary.

The wet, windy inaugural stage of the second edition of the Tour de Yorkshire came down to a mass sprint in Settle, where rising star Dylan Groenewegen claimed a prestigious victory on English soil mirroring LottoNL-Jumbo teammate Moreno Hofland's win last year. The 22-year-old Dutchman was simply too fast for two other up-and-coming sprinters, Aussie Caleb Ewan and German Niklas Arndt, at the end of a stage which saw the six-man breakaway shut down before the pack entered the closing circuit.

Pro cyclists will be having nightmares about this April for a long time. Rain pounded the sign-on podium in the charming town of Beverley, start of the first stage of the Tour de Yorkshire, where temperatures barely reached 7 °C. Unfazed by the weather, throngs of fans came out to root for the 141 brave riders, including a certain Sir Bradley Wiggins ready to get some miles in his legs in his quest to claim a new Olympic gold in Rio. As if by magic, the rain stopped and the first rays of sunshine timidly cracked through the clouds in time for the start of the race at 11:54 am.

Disaster struck in the very first kilometre, when a group of about twenty riders hit the deck and Jeandesboz (DEN), Simon (COF) and Bystrøm (KAT) were knocked out of the race. It was at this point that a six-man breakaway consisting of Williams (ONE), Politt (KAT), Cronshaw (MGT), Briggs (JLT), Wallays (TSV) and Mora (RAL) slipped away. Their margin grew expanded and broke through the 5-minute barrier at km 34.

Despite the wind and the rain, Sky and ORICA GreenEDGE set a sustained rhythm to bring the peloton ever closer Mora claimed the first intermediate sprint in Bubwith (km 46.5) ahead of Briggs and Politt, with the peloton trailing 4′ behind. The gap continued to dwindle and had fallen to 3' by the time they reached the feeding zone, where Peter Weening also decided to call it a day after hurting his ribs in the earlier fall.

The undulating roads of Yorkshire softened the legs of the men in front. Briggs was the first to pop at km 107, soon followed by Cronshaw. Meanwhile, Bradley Wiggins was dropped by the peloton, as the 2012 Tour de France champion shied away from taking any risks on the wet roads to aovid compromising his build-up to the Olympics, eventually abandoning the race a few kilometres down the road. Williams went first over the only classified climb of today's stage, Greenhow Hill, ahead of Wallays and Politt, with the peloton a mere 1′30″ back.

Peter Williams, runner-up in the recent Tro Bro Léon, was the only man left in front by km 131. A counterattack by Edmondson (NPC), Steels (TSV) and Moreno Sala (RAL) caught up with the Brit, but it all came back together at km 154. The peloton, led by defending champion Lars-Petter Nordhaug's Sky team, stayed together until just before the second intermediate sprint, where Turgis (COF), Voeckler (DEN) and Pauwels (DDD) launched an attack, crossing the line in Giggleswick (km 178) in this same order. The former two kept on going, but the bunch gobbled them up with 6 km to go. Stephen Cummings (DDD) attempted a solo effort, but the winner of the stage to Mende in last year's Tour de France was caught before the final kilometre.

Dylan Groenewegen, the final wagon in the LottoNL–Jumbo train, capitalised on his raw power and bike-handling skills to beat Caleb Ewan (OGE) and Niklas Arndt (TGA) in the tricky finale in Settle— the seventh career win for the young Dutch winner of the 2015 Brussels Cycling Classic (formerly known as Paris-Brussels).
The 22-year-old sprinter seized the lead in the general (blue-and-yellow jersey) and points classifications, while the untameable Peter Williams pulled on the best climber's jersey and was awarded the combativity prize for today's stage.

And here's what stage winner Dylan Groenewegen's LottoNL-Jumbo team had to say about the day.

Dylan Groenewegen rewarded the support of his team-mates with victory in the first stage of the Tour de Yorkshire. Team LottoNL-Jumbo’s sprinter started the bunch sprint in the right position and beat Caleb Ewan (Orica - GreenEDGE) and Nikias Arndt (Team Giant - Alpecin) convincingly.

“The way our riders approached this race was strong,” Sports Director Merijn Zeeman said. “I can’t say anything else than that this victory was a beautiful team performance. We took the lead with two kilometres to go. That was a key moment in the stage. The last hundred metres went slightly downhill and were tortuous. Dylan Groenewegen was lead out perfectly and finished it off with a strong sprint.”

Groenewegen gave his teammates a big compliment, as well. “They all fulfilled their tasks perfectly,” he said. “I didn’t have to fight for my position one single moment. This was a lead-out like it should be. When I started to sprint, I actually knew already that I was going to win. I saw Ewan on my wheel, but he neven came up next to me. I just finished a short period of rest. I’ve trained well and it’s wonderful to start this new period immediately with a victory.”

Zeeman sees that Team LottoNL-Jumbo’s sprint lead-out is improving. “We were one today,” he concluded. “Everyone did his part of the job. Tomorrow, we’re going for it another time. The second stage seems to be the easiest one, but the weather is going to be bad. We should enjoy this victory first, though.”
