Stybar sweeps to Eneco Tour stage and overall victory

Late surge overhauls Dumoulin, captures overall victory in WorldTour event

Eneco TourBeginning the final stage second overall, eight seconds behind race leader Tom Dumoulin (Argos-Shimano), the Omega Pharma Quick Step rider Zdenek Stybar pulled off the biggest road race win of his career when he nabbed final overall victory in the Eneco Tour today.

Stybar’s success came with a storming performance on the final stage, with the Czech jumping clear on the climb of the Denderoordberg, shaking off Dumoulin and bridging across to lone leader Ian Stannard with six kilometres to go. The duo remained together until the final climb of the Kapelmuur, where Stybar dropped the Briton inside the final 500 metres and reached the line four seconds clear.

Former race leader and 2012 champion Lars Boom was third, twelve seconds back, while Dumoulin trailed in eighth, 25 seconds behind the final race winner.

“This is one of the best days of my life,” said an elated Sybar. “I am really happy and it is like a dream for me to come there to Eneco Tour to win two stages, almost three, and the GC.

“Today the stage wasn't so easy, but when Chava [Sylvain Chavanel – ed.] went away with small group on the Kwaremont I said ‘okay, perfect, I have to only to stay on wheels and see what happens. But when we caught the group, I understood probably I had a chance to win Eneco Tour.’

Sybar said that his knowledge of the Denderoordberg climb as being a tough one was crucial for his success. “To me it was the only way to go for the win. It wasn't in my head to wait for the final sprint so I decided it was everything or nothing on the climb. I tried my maximum and I did it.”

Racing clear of those he had been with, Stybar admitted that he was surprised to encounter Stannard ahead of him. He said that he didn’t realise that he had been ahead, but was pleased that he was as it boosted his chances of remaining clear.

“It was really great to find a rider like him. We worked well together — to be honest even he would have deserved the victory,” he said. “But when I was there I was only focused and concentrated on gaining seconds for the GC, so I really went for it. Until the last meters I went a block for the GC.”

Stannard had been out front since early on and was the last of that break to remain out front. Despite that, the big diesel engine still had enough in the tank to jump first on the final climb, briefly opening a gap. However Stybar got back up to him and then accelerated clear in the saddle, blasting ahead to race home for the win and the final overall success.

His effort saw him end the WorldTour race 26 seconds clear of a disappointed Dumoulin, and a further 24 ahead of Astana’s Andriy Grivko. Jan Bakelandts (RadioShack Leopard) and Daryl Impey (Orica GreenEdge) were fourth and fifth, 55 seconds back.

Stybar’s success is all the more rewarding for him as he had to have knee surgery in May and missed the Tour de France as a result. Finding success after that setback makes him savour it all the more strongly, and his twin wins today bring his team’s victory count across three disciplines up to 51 for the season.

“It's really a big step for me after a very hard period, a lot of time alone in training,” he said. “Now I am happy. I have to thank my family, my girlfriend and the team who was always near me. To me it's like a surprise, to be the winner of this race. But I was probably fresher than other riders at this moment.”

To me it's like a surprise, to be the winner of this race. But I was probably fresher than other riders at this moment.”

How it played out:

If yesterday’s penultimate stage was seen as a mini Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the final day of the Eneco Tour was modelled on the Ronde van Vlaanderen, taking in familiar climbs including the Kapelmuur.

Early on, Sky’s Ian Stannard started off what would be a long day to the forefront of the action, clipping away with seven others and building a maximum lead of almost six minutes. His fellow breakaway companions were stage four winner Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol), Manuele Boaro (Team Saxo-Tinkoff), Omega Pharma Quick Step’s Guillaume Van Keirsbulck, RadioShack Leopard’s Giacomo Nizzolo, Julian Kern (Ag2R La Mondiale), Ruben Perez Moreno (Euskaltel-Euskadi) and the Vacansoleil DCM rider Pim Ligthart.

Behind, race leader Tom Dumoulin’s Argos Shimano team got some respite when Lampre Merida chased at the front. They, and later chasers Orica GreenEdge, brought the gap down to under two minutes with fifty kilometres left, prompting Stannard to scarper.

Realising the danger, Greipel went with him and the duo set about trying to increase their advantage. Ligthart had more to give and he was able to get across too. With 33 kilometres remaining they were thirty seconds clear of the chasers; two kilometres later, Ligthart cracked under Stannard’s pace, dropping backwards.

Behind, the reason for Lampre Merida’s chase became apparent when Filippo Pozzato started trying to blitz the peloton, and managed to drag a group of over a dozen riders clear. Stannard and Greipel raced on to the Bosberg, where the British rider dropped the German, while Pozzato initially attacked there but was then distanced by Daniel Oss (BMC Racing Team).

The Italian was joined by Sylvan Chavanel (Omega Pharma Quick Step), who started the day just fifty seconds back, plus Wilco Kelderman (Belkin Pro Cycling). They caught Ligthart, while out front Greipel got back up to Stannard. However he once again slipped back on the Bosberg, this time for keeps.

Ligthart had nothing left and went south; meanwhile Stannard was trying to maintain his solo lead and had a minute over Chavanel’s group with twenty kilometres left. This advantage dropped but once again went out to a minute with twelve kilometres left. However from that point things tightened up.

The chase group was caught with six kilometres left. Stannard had half a minute then but was still riding well. Stybar had more left in the tank, though, and attacked on the Denderoordber, getting clear and bridging up to Stannard.

Behind, race leader Dumoulin was distanced by the chase group and could see his chances ebb away. Stybar had started the day just eight seconds back and had taken back more than enough time; he and Stannard continued riding well and hit the final climb together, the Kapelmuur.

Stannard tried to get rid of the former world cyclo-cross champion halfway up the climb but his effort was answered and then exceeded. Stybar surged clear, putting out considerable watts despite remaining in the saddle, and opened up a four second gap by the finish.

He crossed the line arms aloft, celebrating a very important victory, while Stannard impressed with his second place after a very long and tough day in the saddle.

Defending champion Lars Boom was third, twelve seconds back, while race leader Dumoulin was twenty eight seconds down in eighth. He had ridden very well during the race, but couldn’t match Stybar on the final day.

He had to be satisfied with second overall, while Andriy Grivko (Astana Pro Team) completed the podium in third.
