American rider says BMC Racing Team ‘is on the cusp of something great’ in 2014

Taylor PhinneyTaylor Phinney took his best early season result to date today when he maintained his advantage in the Dubai Tour and won the first-ever edition of the race. The American talent reaped the benefits of a very solid period of winter training, winning the opening time trial, leading the race from start to finish and ending up best of a star-studded field in the 2.1-ranked UCI event.

The final stage saw another sprint win by Marcel Kittel (Giant Shimano), who is also enjoying his best-ever early season performances and who has underlined his status as the world’s fastest sprinter.

He thundered in ahead of Mark Renshaw (Omega Pharma Quick Step), Andrea Guardini (Astana), Robert Ferrari (Lampre Merida), Alexandr Porsev (Katusha), Daniele Ratto (Cannondale) and the rest of the main bunch; rivals Peter Sagan (Cannondale) and Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma Quick Step) had hoped to challenge him, but were frustrated by a crash and mechanical issues respectively.

According to his team, Sagan was run into from behind with approximately five kilometres to go and suffered abrasions, while Cavendish indicated that he hit a plastic bollard with a kilometre and a half to go. He said that the incident ripped his chain out of his rear derailleur and also gave him a swollen hand.

Kittel had no such problems, and while he had to sprint from a long way out, had little problems in taking win number three this week.

“I am super happy, but I am totally dead now,” said Kittel, who looked initially exhausted after winning into Burj Khalifa. “The final today was really, really fast. I lost my boys with two kilometres to go, two and a half…just before the bridge. It was amazing how Tom Veelers brought me back to the front.

“Out of nowhere the rest of the team was again there and could do the leadout. I think today we did a brilliant job as a team…thank you to my team.”

Phinney finished without problems in the peloton and thus conserved his overnight advantage. He ended the race fifteen seconds clear of his BMC Racing team-mate Steve Cummings and seventeen up on the impressive Garmin-Sharp signing Lasse Norman Hansen.

Current world time trial champion Tony Martin (Omega Pharma Quick Step) and former rainbow jersey Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) took fourth and fifth, while Kittel’s sprint victory and Sagan’s delay due to his fall saw the German move up to sixth overall.

“For sure I am relieved. Every day it felt like it was my race to lose,” said the 23 year old American. “Having a great team around me gave me a lot of confidence these days. After performing well yesterday, I knew that today, barring disaster, we would be coming here with the overall win.

“I am super happy, super relieved and I know the boys are really happy. I am just glad that we can celebrate as a team and I am glad that I could make BMC proud.”

Although he was on a standard bike as per race rules, Phinney won the time trial thanks to his highest-ever power in a race of that length. He said that his strong form was thanks to a perfect buildup. “I had a really strong winter. I haven’t had a problem free winter, injury, sickness-wise ever [before]. This was first really solid winter,” he said.

“I had a great time in the US with my friends in Boulder, Colorado, and then really solid month of training in San Diego.”

In addition to that, he made sure to do things absolutely right in terms of recovery. “I always had my personal soigneur, my personal massage therapist with me. I invested a lot into this year, I knew it was a very important year. So I am super happy to be coming into the season and getting results straight away. And restoring my team’s belief in me – that is great.”

Kittel echoed that when talking about his fine form. “It is absolutely the best start for me in my professional career so far. I can feel that I did last year a great Tour and for sure it helped me in my development as a rider,” he said. “It simply makes you stronger. I am super happy that I can start in such good shape in 2014.”

How it played out:


Eager to give his Sky Dive Dubai team some publicity on home soil, Francisco Mancebo went clear early on with Jay McCarthy (Tinkoff Saxo) and Pier Paolo de Negri (Vini Fantini-Nippo). They rode hard in trying to eke out a stage-winning advantage, but never managed to do so and were caught inside the final fifteen kilometres.

The sprinters’ teams battled to try to get their leaders into the optimum position for the final and also to keep the race together. With five kilometres to go, the Astana team moved to the front and stretched things out. The Kazakh squad was trying to set things up for the Italian Andrea Guardini, who was keen to grab a result.

Behind, another fastman Peter Sagan hit the deck and lost out any chanced he had of winning the final stage. He looked relatively unhurt but threw his bike to the ground in frustration, realising that he was also losing his sixth place overall.

Astana continued to lead into four kilometres to go, then a Lampre Merida rider moved to the front. He did a long stint and was then joined by his team-mates, but other teams were also pushing forward.

Astana moved back to the front when the 2013 Giro d’Italia winner Vincenzo Nibali drove the pace into the final three kilometres, but it was an impossible task for the climber to keep driving the pace beyond that and the Omega Pharma Quick Step team swept to the front.

They were trying to set Mark Cavendish for what would have been his first sprint win, but Giant Shimano were determined to try to get a third success for Marcel Kittel.

The Dutch team battled to the front and stretched things out inside the final kilometre. Kittel ran out of leadout men slightly early and had to go long, but was strong enough to hold on ahead of Mark Renshaw (Omega Pharma Quick Step), who stepped up after Cavendish had problems, as well as a fast-finishing Guardini and Roberto Ferrari (Lampre Merida).

Phinney savoured the win, knowing that it suggests he is moving to a higher level. He can expect to grow stronger as he matures physically, but there is also a sense that the BMC Racing team is making progress.

“You see Cadel [Evans] in Down Under, how the team rode there and how the team rode here,” he said. “We will see how the boys fare in Qatar and Oman.

“I head now to the Tour of the Med and I hope I can take the time trial there. There is a great atmosphere in the team and I think we are on the cusp of something really great. I am super excited to be a part of it and be part of those list of results.”
