GP Mosqueteiros / Rota do Marquês  2.3 (Portugal)

Stage 1 Report

Angel Edo of Milaneza MSS has won the first stage of the 5th GP Mosqueteiros / Rota do Marquês in Portugal. Nuno Alves of Barbot Torrie took the first Mountain prize after an escape at the 5th km; by the time he reached the first mountain prize he had 5 minutes on the peloton. After about 40 kms, the fugitive had 6:23 on the peloton. At the second mountain prize, which Alves also took, the gap to the peloton was 10:06.

After this the peloton gained ground on the escapee with Milaneza leading the peloton. At the 100 km mark the peloton had closed the gap to only 4:04, with Milaneza driving the front, however the gap opened up again to over five minutes. Then Antarte-Rota Dos Move took over the front of the bunch and the peloton whittled down the gap.

Alves also won the third mountain prize at the 132km mark, with Alberto Benito of Antarte coming second and Yon Bru of LA Pecol coming third. Finally, after almost 125 km away, at 133 kms Alves was absorbed by the peloton. Two riders tried an escape near km 150, Adrian Palomares of Carvalhelhos and Juan Olmo of Barbos, gaining a max of 17 seconds on the peloton but the escape was shortlived. Coming down to the final kilometers, it was the Antarte and Milaneza teams at the front. Alberto Benito of Antarte took the final mountain prize of the day, with Yon Bru capturing second and Antarte's Jacek Morajko taking third place. It was a bunch sprint for the line, with Milaneza's Edo and L.A. Pecol riders Candido Barbosa and Yon Bru taking the top spots. Nuno Alves gained 10 mountain points in today's stage, to Isarael Nunez's and Sergio Paulinho's (both from team ASC Villa do Conde) three each.

Race Preview

Last year Milaneza's Rui Lavarinhas won this race (he is not listed on the race roster this year) so it's safe to say that Milaneza will want a repeat this year. Milaneza placed fourth place overall at Paris Nice and Moller has good form, making his presence felt by a 10th place on stage 4 and 12th on stage 7, reaching 7th overall in the French race. Bernabeu, who was 6th overall at Paris Nice, is not riding this in this race. Angel Edo won the first stage at the Volta ao Algarve (2.3) last month and was third in stages 2 and 3 as well, so the team looks to be coming into this race with some strength, but no doubt it will be just as hotly contested by the other Portuguese teams.
