Deutschland Tour 2022 with a spectacular finale in Stuttgart

The 4th and last stage of the Deutschland Tour 2022 once again turned many things upside down. However, the top positions in the overall classification remained unchanged. Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers) took 5th place in the final stage, running over 186.6 kilometers from Schiltach to Stuttgart – just to win the Deutschland Tour 2022. Even the day's victory could not push Peio Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious), the overall second, further ahead. However, the Spaniard can console himself with the green jersey, which he took last minute from Norwegian Alexander Kristoff.

Bilbao said after his stage win: "Fighting for the overall classification was hard. But I felt I could fight for the stage win today. That worked out. That's why it was a good week for me in my first race in Germany. For sure I will come back."

Even more confident was Yates.“’Lucky’ is not the word I would use. This win really means a lot for me. We tried to control the race from the beginning, but it felt like everybody wanted to be in the break today. At one point it got tight, but we stayed calm, didn’t panic and came away with the win.”

Behind Yates and Bilbao there was movement in the overall standings. At the last moment, Ruben Almeida Guerreiro (EF Education - EasyPost) made it to the podium. He was helped by the bonus seconds he gained as second of the day at the finish and at the day's bonification sprint. Georg Zimmermann (Intermarché - Wanty - Gobert Matériaux) moved to the 4th place in the GC by sprinting to third place in the final stage. On top of that, he won the white jersey of the best young rider like he did last year.

Yates dominiert am Schauinsland und übernimmt Gesamtwertung der Deutschland Tour

Zu keinem Zeitpunkt ließ Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers) Zweifel daran aufkommen, dass irgendein anderer als er die Königsetappe der Deutschland Tour hinauf zum Schauinsland gewinnen könnte. Während Mitfavoriten wie Romain Bardet (Team DSM), Bauke Mollema (Trek – Segafredo) oder auch die Bergspezialisten von BORA – hansgrohe an Boden verloren, setzte sich der 30-Jährige früh ab und fuhr die letzten acht Kilometer solo dem Sieg entgegen. Inklusive Bonussekunden fuhr sich der Brite auf der 3. Etappe so eine Führung von 30 Sekunden in der Gesamtwertung auf Pello Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious), der Tageszweiter wurde, heraus.

Auch hinter Yates wurde die Gesamtwertung ordentlich durcheinandergewirbelt. Bilbao ist neuer Zweiter. Mauri Vansevenant (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl), der Etappendritter wurde, rangiert auf dieser Position nun auch im Kampf um das Rote Trikot. Ganz vorne ist der 23-jährige Belgier aber in der Nachwuchswertung, zeitgleich mit Mattias Skjelmose (Trek – Segafredo). Eine Sekunde dahinter rangiert Georg Zimmermann (Intermarché  –  Wanty – Gobert Matériaux), als bester deutscher Fahrer im Klassement.

Die anderen beiden Wertungstrikots bleiben bei ihren bisherigen Besitzern. Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché  –  Wanty – Gobert Matériaux) verteidigte das Grüne Trikot des Punktbesten. Das Blaue Trikot für die Bergwertung trägt weiterhin Jakob Geßner (Lotto – Kern Haus). „Wir sind heute mit dem Ziel gestartet, möglichst viele Punkte an den ersten Bergwertungen zu holen. Es hat leider nicht für die Maximalpunktzahl gereicht, aber für ein kleines Polster. So ein Trikot auf den Schultern entfacht da immer noch eine kleine Flamme. Wir sind hier als Konti-Team nicht an den Start gegangen, um nur mitzufahren.“

Kristoff extends his series of German wins at the Deutschland Tour

After a frantic fight for the break of the day, the 2nd stage of the Deutschland Tour cooled down for quite a bit. But it was the calm before the storm because the last 40 kilometers were a real challenge. After EF Education - EasyPost split the peloton at the Amöneburg climb, it remained hectic for the last kilometers between Meiningen and Marburg. In the end, however, things were as they often are in a Deutschland Tour: Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché - Wanty - Gobert Matériaux) stood at the top of the winner's podium. For the Norwegian it was already the fourth stage win at the new Deutschland Tour – that's a best.

Kristoff, who also took over the green jersey of the points leader with his victory, is always lucky when racing in Germany. “I don’t know why, but Germany suits me. I also always have good results in Frankfurt. Maybe it’s because the climbs are not too long, and we do local circuits – like the Champs-Élysées. I prefer them.”

But the efforts of EF Education - EasyPost, which played a starring role in the final kilometers, were also paid off. Although the team's leader Alberto Bettiol was still behind Kristoff and second-placed Florian Sénéchal in the stage's classification, he took the overall leader's red jersey thanks to six bonus seconds he had secured at the finish and five kilometers earlier in the bonification sprint. Previous leader Filippo Ganna and Kristoff are tied behind.

Bettiol said after the race: ”We are not here to see the German landscape. We try to win. Unfortunately, we didn’t do today, but we were close. And we also reach the goal to take some bonus seconds for me. Because tomorrow I don’t think I’m gonna win. The climb is very hard, and I am happy to take some seconds on the best climbers here.”

Caleb Ewan wins first stage of the Deutschland Tour – Ganna defends red jersey

Maybe the 500-metre-long finish line in Meiningen was a bit too long for Alexander Kristoff (Intermarche - Wanty - Gobert Materiaux). The Norwegian, who became the day's favorite after European Champion Fabio Jakobsen (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl)  was distanced on the last climb, had to see not only the new white jersey winner Jonathan Milan (Bahrain Victorious) pass but also the two young Germans Max Kanter (Movistar) and Felix Groß (UAE Emirates) as well as the French champion Florian Senechal (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl).

Stage winner Ewan knew another reason for this: "Downhill finishes are hard to time. But my team put me in a really good position. It was a very sweet victory after the last average months. But my team never lost faith in me and now I could pay something back for that."

Meanwhile, Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) stays the GC leader and defended the Deutschland Tour's red jersey in addition to the green jersey. "I didn't expect us to do this. But especially Egan (Bernal) worked hard to keep us in the top position in the overall classification." After the last climb, Ganna even impressed with an attack: " When Nils Politt attacked, I thought why not follow him. Then I did a bit more. But maybe that wasn't a great idea."

World champion Ganna takes first Red Jersey by winning the prologue of the Deutschland Tour

Although he had to compete without a time trial machine – like everyone else – ITT world champion Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadier) won the prologue over 2.6 kilometers. With his win, he takes the first red jersey of the Deutschland Tour 2022. The Italian mastered the six curves through Weimar in 2.56,89 minutes with 53 km/h about two seconds faster than Bauke Mollema (Trek – Segafredo), who was another second faster than Nils Politt (Bora – Hansgrohe).

The 26-year-old Ganna, who recently had to give way to the two Swiss Stefan Bissegger and Stefan Küng at the European Championships in Munich, said: “It was a very intense race, at the finish line I was all-out. In the last corner I risked a little bit more and went all or nothing. But I was lucky and got through. I would have preferred an ITT bike, but in the end everything went well.

Top start list promises an exciting Deutschland Tour 2022

Two weeks before the start of the Deutschland Tour, the 20 teams announced their provisional starters. Led by the defending winner and German champion Nils Politt, BORA - hansgrohe will enter their home race with several leaders. This year's stage profiles also suit Maximilian Schachmann, third overall in 2018, and Lennard Kämna.

Right at the start of the Deutschland Tour on August 24th, one jersey will catch the eye: with Filippo Ganna (INEOS Grenadiers), the ITT world champion will start the races first ever prologue. A look at the competition shows that the switch from the rainbow jersey to the red leader jersey won't go without a fight. With a length of only 2.6 kilometers, the lap through the cultural city of Weimar is a matter for the fast riders. Yves Lampaert (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team), winner of the opening time trial of this year's Tour de France, national champions like Bauke Mollema (Trek - Segafredo) and the powerful sprinters will give their best.

With Le Tour stage winner Fabio Jakobsen (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team), Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) and Olav Kooij (Jumbo-Visma), the international elite of fast men meets the German sprinters around Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain-Victorious), Rick Zabel (Israel - Premier Tech) and Max Kanter (Movistar Team). Alexander Kristoff (Intermaché - Wanty - Gobert Matériaux) will want to use his preference for German races again this year to win a stage.


Top teams confirmed for the Deutschland Tour 2022

June 23rd, 2022

Germany's most important cycling race once again underscores its key position. Two months before the race's start in Weimar, the Deutschland Tour confirms it will take place with the maximum of 14 teams from the WorldTour. Two ProTeams and four other German teams complete the list of teams.

BORA - hansgrohe leads the line-up of 20 teams on the Deutschland Tour. With Nils Politt as overall winner, the team impressed at their home tour in 2021.

The world's best teams are set to come: Jumbo-Visma, INEOS Grenadiers, UAE Team Emirates and Bahrain-Victorious form the Top 5 of the current world rankings with BORA - hansgrohe.

Intermaché - Wanty - Gobert Matériaux has riders in its ranks who left their mark on the last edition of the Deutschland Tour. Alexander Kristoff underlined his preference for German races with two stage wins and Georg Zimmermann showed his great talent by winning the jersey of the best young rider. Local cycling fans will also look forward to the international teams of many German pros. In addition to Team DSM, EF Education - Easypost, Israel - Premier Tech, Lotto Soudal, Movistar Team and Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team might nominate their German riders for the Deutschland Tour.
