14.08 Sgalletta well in the leading positions Geoffrey Bouchard, leader of the standings.

14.06 Even in the group we see runners losing contact. Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) is now on the hook.

14.03 You begin to feel tired even in the first ones, Carl Fredrik Hagen (Israel Premier Tech) and Vadim Pronskiy (Astana Qazaqstan) come off.

14.00 Now the group is at 1’21 “behind Carl Fredrik Hagen (Israel Premier Tech), Hermann Pernsteiner (Bahrain-Victorious), Miguel Ángel Lopez and Vadim Pronskiy (Astana Qazaqstan), Pavel Sivakov (Ineos Grenadiers), Felix Gall (AG2R) Citroën), China Uijtdebroecks (Bora-hansgrohe), Jonathan Caicedo (EF Education-EasyPost), Matteo Badilatti and Michael Storer (Groupama-FDJ) and Thymen Arensman (Team DSM).

13.56 Among the men on the run, the biggest promoters of the action are Vadim Pronsky and Miguel Angel Lopez from Astana-Qazaqstan.

13.53 And in fact the platoon eats another fifteen seconds, signaled anger at 1’33 “.

13.50 Now there is also the AG2R Citroen of the first in the standings Geoffrey Bouchard to lead the group: giving margin to someone like Miguel Angel Lopez is never too reassuring.

13.47 I stretch around 7% for the first eleven, when we are almost 60 kilometers from the finish.

13.43 The ascent of the top eleven continues to be regular, but they continue to lose under the pressure of Bahrain-Victorious: now the group is at 1’47 “.

13.40 Climb of more than 16 kilometers, average gradient of 6.4%, but with some peaks that will reach 20%: the race can break out here.

13.37 The group instead approaches the climb with 2’12 ”delay.

13.35 Now the Mendola Pass begins for the eleven in advance.

13.32 The advantage of the eleven men on the run still drops, Carl Fredrik Hagen (Israel Premier Tech), Hermann Pernsteiner (Bahrain-Victorious), Miguel Ángel Lopez and Vadim Pronskiy (Astana Qazaqstan), Pavel Sivakov (Ineos Grenadiers), Felix Gall (AG2R) Citroën), China Uijtdebroecks (Bora-hansgrohe), Jonathan Caicedo (EF Education-EasyPost), Matteo Badilatti and Michael Storer (Groupama-FDJ) and Thymen Arensman (Team DSM). Now the clock says 2’25 ”.

13.28 70 kilometers to the finish.

13.24 After the intermediate sprint obviously Lopez is the virtual leader of the ranking.

13.20 There is expectation for the next GPM, that of Mendelpass, where the racing situation will certainly change.

13.16 The delay of the platoon in fact decreases, we are about 2’50 “.

13.13 Now Bahrain Victorious is also supporting the pursuit.

13.10 Daniel Muñoz (Drone Hopper – Androni Toys) retires.

13.07 We remember the squad of attackers: Carl Fredrik Hagen (Israel Premier Tech), Hermann Pernsteiner (Bahrain-Victorious), Miguel Ángel Lopez and Vadim Pronskiy (Astana Qazaqstan), Pavel Sivakov (Ineos Grenadiers), Felix Gall (AG2R Citroën), China Uijtdebroecks (Bora-hansgrohe), Jonathan Caicedo (EF Education-EasyPost), Matteo Badilatti and Michael Storer (Groupama-FDJ) and Thymen Arensman (Team DSM).

13.01 Miguel Angel Lopez goes to take the bonus seconds at the intermediate finish.

12.58 95 kilometers to the finish.

12.55 Further effort for Hagen who sensationally manages to return to the escape. Excellent pursuit of the Norwegian, now eleven men on the attack.

12.53 We are close to the intermediate goal of Cavalese.

12.50 Hagen recovers something and is 50 ”from the top.

12.47 Curiosity in seeing in front of the Belgian Cian Uijtdebroeks, just 19 years old. Another of the predestined of this sport.

12.45 Between the two squads we remember that there is always the Norwegian Hagen.

12.43 3’30 ”the posting of the Green Jersey Group.

12.36 Caravan that is still engaged in the very long descent.

12.33 The average of the first hour is 29.2 km / h, we remind you that the runners have covered Passo Rolle.

12.31 In front, in addition to Lopez, also look at Storer, Sivakov and Arensman, all excellent riders.

12.28 It is now necessary to understand how the group in pursuit will be organized and which team will give a hand to AG2R. Lopez is scary in terms of the general classification.

12.25 Hagen always stays in the middle for a minute.

12.23 The platoon of the green jersey is about 3 ‘from the escape.

12.20 The attackers continue to gain.

12.16 Passo Rolle over the top, now a long descent.

12.14 Between the first group and that of the green jersey we find Carl Fredrik Hagen (Israel Premier Tech) about a minute away.

12.05 There are no Italian riders in the lead action.

12.02 A squad of ten men took a thirty second margin on the platoon.

11.59 When the riders are about to reach the top there are the first real sprints in the group.

11.55 There are 5 kilometers to reach the summit.

11.52 Astana Qazaqstan picks up the pace.

11.48 However, the day’s escape does not go away, maybe downhill could benefit someone.

11.45 High pace and many runners are losing contact in the rear.

11.42 Another Israeli rider in difficulty, it is Chris Froome.

11.39 It is hard to keep the wheels of the best Giacomo Nizzolo.

11.37 Mostly Drone Hopper and Bardiani move.

11.34 We are on the first ramps of the very long Passo Rolle: 21.2 kilometers at an average gradient of 5.8%.

11.32 Obviously immediately shots and counter-shots in the group.

11.28 Sergio Roman Martín (Caja Rural – Seguros RGA) did not leave today.

11.25 LET’S GO!

11.23 At the top of the general classification we find the winner of yesterday’s fraction, the French Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R-Citroen), who obviously has the aim of trying to keep the leader’s jersey.

11.21 The official start will be at 11.25, runners heading towards kilometer 0.

11.19 Today is one of the toughest stages of the race. The day begins immediately with the wheels up: we start with Passo Rolle (peak of the Tour with its 1984 meters), a first category not for the slopes, not at all prohibitive (average just under 6%), but for its length of about 20 kilometers. A long descent and a relatively quiet stretch of about fifty kilometers will take the race to South Tyrol, towards the Mendola Pass: another 15.4 kilometers of ascent, not too complicated for slopes but which require a fairly constant pace; it will be here that the favorites will be able to aim to move the race. Once over the Mendola, you go uphill again towards Passo Palade; then 18 kilometers of descent and then the last 3000 meters towards Lana, the very light climb.

11.17 Today the 154.1 km Primiero / San Martino di Castrozza-Lana is staged.

11.15 Hello and welcome to the Live broadcast of the second stage of the Tour of the Alps 2022.

Hello everyone and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the second stage of the Tour of the Alps 2022, the 154.1 km Primiero / San Martino di Castrozza-Lana; a fraction in which Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R-Citroen) could aim to keep the overall leader jersey after the surprising victory in yesterday’s stage.

The day begins immediately with the wheels up: it begins with the Passo Rolle (summit of the Tour with its 1984 meters), a first category not for the slopes, not at all prohibitive (average of just under 6%), but for its length of about 20 kilometers, immediately fragmenting the group and presumably launching the escape that will characterize the stage.

A long descent and a relatively quiet stretch of about fifty kilometers will take the race to South Tyrol, towards the Mendola Pass: another 15.4 kilometers of ascent which are not too complicated for slopes but which require a fairly constant pace; it will be here that the favorites will be able to aim to move the race. Once over the Mendola, you go uphill again towards the Passo Palade; then 18 kilometers of descent and then the last 3000 meters towards Lana, the very light climb.

Tour of the Alps 2022 classification, first stage: Bouchard completes the feat, also his jersey of best climber

The ranking could therefore be redesigned today, in view of the fraction of tomorrow that with Passo Furcia will make us understand who can win this Tour of the Alps and who cannot. Our LIVE LIVE starts at 11.15: have fun!
