Evergreen veteran Voigt grabs RadioShack Leopard triumph at Tour of California

Van Garderen takes over race lead as select group goes clear in crosswinds

Jens VoigtRadioShack Leopard rider Jens Voigt boosted his fan following with a stirring solo victory on day five of the Tour of California, breaking clear just over five kilometres from the finish of the stage to Avila Beach.

Swiftly gaining a gap and then increasing his advantage as the chasers dithered, the charismatic German rider powered home six seconds ahead of next riders, Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp), Thor Hushovd (BMC Racing Team), Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) and ten others.

In doing so, he picked up his first victory since a stage win in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge last August, and showed that he’s still a very strong, driven rider at 41 years of age.

The stage saw several riders lose out when they were caught napping by echelons sparked off by Voigt and his RadioShack Leopard team with 55 kilometres to go. Those who finished in the peloton included overall leader Janier Alexis Acevedo Colle (Jamis - Hagens Berman) and third-placed Philip Deignan (UnitedHealthcare), and despite hard chasing by their teams, they would reach the line one minute seven seconds back.

This time loss dropped Acevedo to third, 50 seconds back, while Deignan is a further two places and 27 seconds down.

Both had hoped to carry their previous positions into tomorrow’s time trial, but will instead be scrabbling to try to recoup the lost ground.

Apart from Voigt, van Garderen was the day’s big winner. “It certainly wasn’t BMC’s plan, it was RadioShack’s plan,” he said, speaking about the echelons and the splitting of the bunch. “For a long time it seemed like a headwind and nothing was possible, but all of a sudden the wind changed. It was a split second decision and we got lucky.”

However although he is now 42 seconds ahead of Michael Rogers (Team Saxo Tinkoff) and a further eight seconds ahead of Acevedo, he refuses to take anything for granted. “It is certainly not over. With the TT and Diablo to come, everything is still tight,” he said.

Van Garderen said that the reason the break was able to gain time was down to the solid collaboration that was taking place. “It was kind of like everyone was chipping in,” he said, referring to the others in the move. “Some of the sprinters were sitting onto save their energy for the stage finish. Everyone else was working.”

He said it was important that he and the other overall contenders didn’t try to play things too smart. “If one GC stops working, the others stop too and it comes back,” he said. “But all the GC guys did a good job there and kept pulling through.

Van Garderen was visibly excited on the podium, moving one step closer to what would be the first big GC win of his career. He’s just 24 years of age and is continuing to progress as a rider; in contrast, Voigt is nearing the end of his career, but he too is fighting for victories. What’s more, he has the enthusiasm of a far younger competitor.

“The road turned, there was more sidewind and we launched an attack and we go,” he said, speaking of RadioShack Leopard’s aggression in forcing the break. “We managed to have Matthew Busche with us so he moved up in the GC, and I felt like that I was a little bit stronger than the other guys in the break. But as I was less fast in the sprint, the only chance for me to win is to come here alone.”

Resolving to attack, what was important was to pick the right moment. He did that perfectly. “We turned around this corner at five kilometres to go, it was a little sticky uphill. I said, ‘now or never, now or never. Everyone’s hurting and I got to go now.’ I went all in, and it worked one time again.”

Yesterday’s stage winner Farrar was next best of the rest, but his second place gave him further confirmation that he appears to be back to top sprinting form. He’s now just one point off Sagan in the sprints classification, and has a new goal to target between now and the race’s conclusion on Sunday.

As for Acevedo and Deignan, their big goal is to get back in the top three, but both will know this evening that missing the move has made their chances more complicated. Still, both are clearly climbing very well and will aim for solid performances in tomorrow’s time trial and then Saturday’s mountain stage.

How it played out:

The riders faced a 185.7 kilometre race from Santa Barbara to Avila Beach, run off under cooler weather than the scorching conditions of the first few days. The stage would be an undulating rather than a particularly mountainous one, but included the steep climb of San Marco Pass (km 25) plus three intermediate sprints.

Early on King of the Mountains leader Carter Jones (Bissell Pro Cycling) jumped away seeing to bolster his lead and was joined by 2012 Giro d’Italia stage winner and podium finisher Thomas De Gendt (Vacansoleil DCM) and Kai Chun Feng (Champion System).

These quickly opened a minute’s gap and while Marsh Cooper (Optum Pro Cycling) tried to get across, he was unable to do so. He was hauled back by the bunch, while the leading trio increased their lead to eight and a half minutes by the time Jones crested the San Marco Pass ahead of Feng and De Gendt.

That was the high point of their lead, after which their advantage dropped to three and a half minutes by the first intermediate sprint in Orcutt (km 113). De Gendt was first to the line there, while Kai Feng was the prime winner at the second such gallop, 19 kilometres later.

In between those two points, the riders hit a section of strong sidewinds and this caused the gap to plummet under one and a half minutes by the line. The RadioShack Leopard team had put the hammer down and finally broke the elastic with approximately 55 kilometres remaining, forcing a very dangerous move to go clear.

It caught the three leaders with just under fifty kilometres left, and while De Gendt and Chun Feng tucked into the break, Jones continued to drift back to the peloton.

Those present in the seventeen man move included van Garderen, who knew he could be riding into the leader’s gold jersey due to Acevedo’s absence, plus his team-mates Thor Hushovd and Michael Schar.

Also in the break were Farrar (Garmin Sharp), Voigt and Irizar Arranburu (RadioShack Leopard), Orica GreenEdge’s Baden Cooke, Mitchell Docker, Michael Matthews and Cameron Meyer, De Gendt and Chun Feng, Team Saxo Tinkoff’s trio of Michael Rogers, Jonas Jorgensen and Jay McCarthy, Peter Sagan (Cannondale) and Alex Candelario (Optum)

That group quickly gained 50 seconds over the main field. Hushovd won the bonus sprint at Arroyo Grande, edging out Rogers and van Garderen, while behind the peloton was dithering in getting organised.

With 25 kilometres left, the gap between the two groups was 45 seconds. Farrar was forced to change a wheel after he experienced a flat tyre, but managed to get back up to the others.

Behind, Deignan’s UnitedHealthcare team and 5 Hour Energy/Kenda were riding hard at the head of the peloton to try to reduce the gap, but were unable to make any real impression. With ten kilometres to go the leaders were still 55 seconds ahead, and when Jens Voigt attacked hard on a drag 5.2 kilometres from the finish, the certainty of a response meant that the break’s recapture was looking very unlikely.

Sure enough, his acceleration put him a minute and five seconds ahead, shaking things up and guaranteeing a very interesting finale.

The group behind him showed little organisation and Voigt used this procrastination to further build his lead. Baden Cooke (Orica GreenEdge) sensed danger and jumped clear in pursuit, making his effort with 2.8 kilometres left.

He was joined by two others, De Gendt and Jona Jurgensen (Team Saxo Tinkoff), who went past him and tried to get back to Voigt. Behind, Sagan led the others up to and past them, but it was too little, too late. Voigt headed under the kilometre to go banner with a lead of several seconds and kept driving all the way to the line.

The German crossed the finish to huge cheers. Behind, Hushovd beat Farrar and Sagan for second. Van Garderen finished safely in this group, while the yellow jersey bunch rolled in over a minute back. This ensured the BMC Racing Team rider lost his race lead, dropping to third, and Philip Deignan (United Healthcare) slipped from third to fifth.
