Pascal Ackermann was in despite the sprint defeat of the best mood felt in his analysis in the X-ray lecture hall of the Technical University of Ilmenau in the school time back. That’s how in the chemical hall, do we have something for an experiment? The bike professional joked after the second stage of Germany tour. The Pfälzer had a good laugh despite his third place, after all, he defended the tough’s red jersey just with two seconds.
Now I’m a step further than the last years. Otherwise, I always lost everything on the second stage. Now we can be satisfied, said Ackermann, who had no chance against day winner Alexander Kristoff. The Norwegian Routinian, the cold and wind could not affect anything on Friday, does the UAE team for Ackermann in the coming year.
I have good legs, but the last 100 meters I have received completely.
Few centimeters to victory in front of the local audience were lacking his compatriot Phil Bauhaus. After 180.6 kilometers of Sangerhausen to Ilmenau, the 27-year-old was exaggerated from Bocholt a bit thin from Kristoff. Today I can not be so angry. It was a heavy race, a heavy round. I have good legs, but the last 100 meters I’ve entered completely. We drove a strong race, but in the end was no longer in it, Balanced Bauhaus.
It was a very technically sophisticated finale and difficult with the wet roads. We made a good job and I am very happy to have won here, said, however, Kristoff.
Ackermann, on Thursday, even radiant stake winner in Schwerin, now has the overall standings in view. I have already 14 seconds to the mountains. For me it would be a dream to win the overall class. And if necessary, teammate Nils Polit is still in a promising position.
All must suffer
Suffering had to be on the section of Saxony-Anhalt to Thuringia in Wind and rain all drivers. It was just cold and a tough day was Ackermann: You can also have a bad day, even if that was not so bad today.
The race is finished after a fall on a cobblestone passage, however for Rick Zabel, Teammollege of Sprint-Routinier André Greipel and the fourfold tour winner Chris Froome. I once again tried it after the fall, but I had to see that I could not hold the handlebar properly. But I assume that it’s only bruises, said Zabel of the ARD shortly before the X-ray in the hospital in Ilmenau . Grip was also falling in the fall in the main field, but could continue and finish the stage.
Discussions had created the stage in the run-up to the tour, as it originally near the memorial Buchenwald should lead over the Bloodstraße built by KZ detainees – even a mountain classification was planned here. However, after public criticism, the route was changed.
The third section of the four-day tour leads to Erlangen on Saturday over 193.9 kilometers from Ilmenau. The overall winner will be announced on Sunday in Nuremberg, where the race goes after a total of 720.5 kilometers.
