Savitsky sprints to first pro win at Tour of Qinghai Lake

Gangcha, CHINA—A sudden attack from Russian Ivan Savitsky (RusVelo) inside the closing 2 kilometres caught current points leader Marko Kump (Adria Mobil) off guard and helped Savitskiy record his first pro win by outsprinting Mykhaylo Kononenko (Kolss-BDC) and Kump on stage 4 of the 14th ‘Qinghai Rural Credit Cup’ Tour of Qinghai Lake (UCI 2.HC) on Wednesday, July 8 in Gangcha, China.
 
“With 2km to go I attacked,” explained Savitsky post race. “I pushed to the maximum. I am very happy, as it’s my first victory in a serious race with such a high class of riders.
 
Kump, who won the opening two stages, was visibly frustrated after the finish. But the 26-year-old Slovenian and former Tinkoff-Saxo rider says “that’s cycling.”
 
“Our first goal in this race is GC (general classification),” said Kump, who spent two days in the leaders jersey before surrendering it to stage 3 winner Oleksandr Polivoda (Kolss-BDC) on Tuesday. “We are a strong team and we came to win this race.”
 
“This is not a stage where you win the race, but it is one where you can lose it.”
 
Kump’s teammate Radoslav Rogina sits third on GC after finishing third on stage 3. The 36-year-old Croatian was with Kump in the closing 10km and initiated the jump with 3km to go.
 
“Our attack was not perfect,” said Kump. “My teammate Rogina was the first to attack, but there were too many riders from Kolss and they did not let him go.
 
“Then the rider from RusVelo attacked and we hesitated for just a second or two which with the speed and a tailwind in the final kilometre was just too much to overcome.”
 
Action picked up inside the first 10km of the 185km stage from Qinghai Lake to Gangcha with a seven-man break that extended its lead to 1 minute 50 seconds at the 27km mark. The lead group consisted of Japan’s Genki Yamamoto (Nippo-Vini Fantini), Slovakia’s Thomas Harag (CK-Banska Bystrica), Uzbekistan’s Muradjan Halmuratov (Beijing Yanqin Innova Cycling Team), as well as a quartet of Chinese riders, including Shi Jie Yu (China Hainan Yindongli-Wildto), Zeng Tao Yang (China Continental Team of Gansu Bank) and Qinghai Tianuyoude teammates Jinde Zhang and Shengiun Wu.
 
Their gap increased to 2:41 at 45km.
 
Yang nabbed the first intermediate sprint at 66.6km ahead of compatriots Yu and Zhang. The break joined by a group of 43 riders led Kump prior to the second intermediate sprint, which he claimed ahead of Ukrainian Sergiy Lagkuti (Kolss-BDC) and Slovenian Matei Mugerli (Synergy-Baku).
 
The final intermediate sprint came at 158.2km after the lead group of 50 dwindled to 30, allowing Mexican Luis Lemus (AirGas-Safeway) to launch a solo attack to claim the final sprint points on the day ahead of Lagkuti and Azeri Samir Jabrayilov (Synergy-Baku).
 
Lemus was eventually joined to comprise the final group heading into the closing 35km.
 
The 13-stage, 2,027-kilometre Asia Tour race continues on Thursday with the short but sharp 133km ‘Qinghai Sports Development General Company’ stage 5 from Xihaizhen to Gonghe.
 
With Polivoda in the overall lead, followed by Italian Luka Wackermann (Southeast) at just 1 second down, and Rogina 9 seconds back, Adria Mobil is right where they want to be according to team sports director Bostjan Mervar.
 
“Overall, nothing changed today,” said Mervar. “I think the yellow jersey is not so strong in the climbs, so we will challenge for jersey tomorrow.”
 
Kump reiterated Mervar’s comments.
 
“I am frustrated that I did not win today,” admitted Kump. “We still have Rogina third on GC and we will fight for that and the green jersey. But the yellow jersey is our top priority.

2015 環青海湖第4賽段:“青海農信”青海湖-剛察
伊万·賽維斯基斬​​獲單站波利佛大力保黃衫
 
2015年7月8日,緊隨著第三賽段之後,第十四屆“青海農信杯”環青海湖國際公路自行車賽第四賽段:“青海農信”青海湖-剛察將帶領車手們正式進入青海湖景區,這也將是本屆環湖賽距離青海湖最近的賽段。
 
比賽在剛察縣東大街休閒廣場迎來最後衝刺,來自俄羅斯洛斯維羅隊的伊万·賽維斯基(Savitskiy Ivan)率先過線,為洛斯維羅車隊摘得本屆環湖賽的首個單站冠軍,烏克蘭科爾斯車隊科農恩科(Kononenko Mykhaylo)順勢獲得第二,斯洛文尼亞艾德里亞莫貝爾車隊的馬科爾(Kump Marko)第三。本賽段結束後各色領騎衫均未出現變化,來自烏克蘭科爾斯隊的波利佛大(Polivoda Oleksandr)繼續領跑總成績榜、同時保有黃衫;賽段第三的馬科爾同樣憑藉衝刺積分的領先優勢守住綠衫;來自中華台北RTS森地客隊的阿里扎德(Alizadeh Hossein)同樣披上藍衫繼續保持亞洲車手最佳的殊榮;而由於本賽段沒有爬坡點,因此昨天爬坡王圓點衫的獲得者、來自寧夏體彩福克斯隊的科羅拉多(Colorado Hernandez Francisco Jarley)繼續稱王爬坡積分榜。
 
第四賽段為全長185公里的沿湖風光賽道,車手們從二郎劍景區出發後將順沿109國道—環湖西路—315國道,最後抵達賽段終點剛察縣。本站比賽共設有三個途中衝刺點,分別位於第66.6公里處的黑馬河鄉、第120.7公里處的鳥島以及第158.2公里處的泉吉鄉。
 
毫不誇張的說第四賽段是本屆環湖賽擁有最美湖岸風光的賽段,一路上車手將途徑包括黑馬河鄉、鳥島等多個著名景點。作為青海湖環湖西路(環湖公路)的起點,黑馬河位鄉於青海湖的西岸,從這里至石乃亥鄉的四十餘公里環湖西路被稱為是青海湖最美路段。這段路在不同的季節將會呈現不同的美景,7、8月份更將會有萬畝油菜花在湖畔盛開。
 
今天的比賽在青海湖邊凜冽的寒風以及大幅的降溫中迎來發車,早晨的氣溫更是降至10度以下,不少車手在開賽前披上了保暖外套。另一方面經過前三個賽段的洗禮之後,今天參賽的車手人數也銳減至134人,環湖賽的難度可想而知。
 
比賽開始之後,來自青海天佑德隊的張金德率先從大團中突圍而出,9.6公里之後,突圍集團逐步擴大至7位車手,其中包括青海天佑德隊的吳生君、中國海南引動力野途洲際隊於世傑、甘肅銀行洲際隊楊增濤等多位中國車手,比賽隨後進入相對平穩的階段,突圍集團一路將領先優勢拉大至3分鐘以上。
 
在第一沖刺點的較量中楊增濤、於世傑、張金德三名中國車手更是順勢包攬前三,隨後大團中的車手們似乎如夢方醒,並在多支總成績領先車隊的帶領下發起追擊,此時天氣逐漸開始放晴,車手們的狀態也逐漸開始回升。領先集團中,吳生君佈在布哈河大橋前被大團追回。當比賽進行至110公里時所有突圍車手被追回,而短短5公里後,大團再次分裂成若干小集團,最前方的領先集團由28名車手組成,其中斯洛文尼亞艾德里亞莫貝爾車隊的馬科爾身著綠衫搶得第二衝刺點。
 
之後的比賽進入相對混亂的階段,主集團的追擊節奏不斷加快,美國艾爾蓋斯賽福威隊的萊穆斯(Lemus Davila Luis Enrique)從大團單飛而出之後率先通過第三衝刺點,烏克蘭科爾斯隊的拉格庫提(Lagkuti Sergiy)以及賈布拉依洛夫(Samir Jabrayilov)在追擊無果之後分別收穫第二、第三。
 
第三衝刺點過後,不斷有車手突圍成功,比賽進行171.2公里後17名車手的突圍集團逐漸穩定。最終衝刺中來自俄羅斯洛斯維羅隊的伊万·賽維斯基在與烏克蘭科爾斯車隊科農恩科的纏鬥中早早的確立領先優勢,並率先過線,拿下本站比賽。
 
賽前車手採訪——
 
波利佛大,烏克蘭科爾斯隊車手,第三賽段冠軍以及總成績黃衫得主
 
Q:昨天非常精彩搶下黃衫,今天在這麼美麗的青海湖畔醒來,並身披黃衫出戰,你的心情如何?
 
波利佛大:是的,今天早晨醒來時,我還是覺得非常驚喜。今年的賽段和去年並不相同,我沒有料到自己昨天會有那麼好的表現。我的隊友們今天將面臨一場非常嚴峻的考驗,因為天氣寒冷,而且還可能會有雨,比較危險。但我們一定要齊心協力,把黃衫留在我們手中盡可能多幾個賽段,不過我現在無法預測最後結果,因為後面還有好幾個爬坡賽段。
 
Q:你覺得自己是否有機會獲得本屆環青海湖賽的總冠軍?
 
波利佛大:我現在並不知道,環青海湖賽是一個很長的多日賽,而且每天的賽段類型都不同,有不同的挑戰。這需要整個車隊的配合併且保持很高水平的發揮。因為這需要在爬坡中有很好的表現,下坡後又能有體力去奪取最後的衝刺。我只能說,環青海湖賽的總冠軍將屬於最強的隊伍,如果我們車隊夠強,就一定會有機會。
 
 
阿里扎德·侯賽因,中華台北RTS森地客隊車手,目前亞洲最佳車手藍衫擁有者
 
Q:昨日比賽后你獲得亞洲最佳車手藍衫,對於自己昨天的表現你有何評價?
 
阿里扎德:昨天是本屆環青海湖賽的第一個爬坡賽段,很難的爬坡,賽程也不短。對我本人來說是相當艱苦的一天,因為所有車手都表現得很積極,而我的狀態卻並不是很好。但我很幸運,最後跟隨第一集團過線,並沒有丟失太多的時間。
 
Q:你曾經獲得過環青海湖賽的總冠軍,對於今年的比賽,你是否希望自己可以再一次獲此殊榮?
 
阿里扎德:我當然希望我能再次在環青海的比賽中獲得總冠軍,我希望我能夠得到全隊的支持,那樣我會盡一切努力去爭取。
 
 
賽后車手採訪——
 
伊万·賽維斯基,俄羅斯洛斯維羅隊車手,本賽段冠軍
 
“今天的賽段因為路上的風非常大,所以十分困難。我的隊友們給我很大的幫助。最後30公里,大約有25人開始了最後的進攻,我在這個集團的後部。最後2公里,我發動了我的進攻,就這樣拿下了這個賽段冠軍。”
 
 
明天第十四屆“青海農信杯”環青海湖國際公路自行車賽將展開第五賽段::“青海省體育發展總公司”西海鎮-共和賽段的角逐。車手們將從西海鎮同寶路西海廣場出發,向南抵達賽段終點——共和縣德和大街州文化傳媒中心,完成全長132公里的比賽。
