Archie Ryan wins in Banska Stiavnica, Josef Cerny takes the overall lead

Archie Ryan wins in Banska Stiavnica, Josef Cerny takes the overall lead

Archie Ryan showed the strongest legs in the hard cobbled-uphill finish in Banska Stiavnica. Overnight leader Ethan Vernon lost a significant portion of time today and fell out the overall standings. Josef Cerny, the second man of the overall standings before the stage, lost only eleven seconds and took the yellow jersey. 

 

Second stage of the 66th edition of Tour of Slovakia started in town of Hlohovec and finished in Banska Stiavnica, on the uphill cobbled drag to the line, the hardest finish of all the stages in this year's edition. It was preceded by a hilly parkour, featuring six categorised climbs. Half of them was from the first category. 

 

Right from the start of the stage, the peloton started to climb on the first categorised hill of the stage. Matúš Štoček, wearing the best climber's jersey, was first at the top. Slovak however failed to make into the day's breakaway and so lost jersey in the process. Break was made up of his team college from ATT Investments, Mika Heming, who was accompanied by Jan Bárta (Elkov) and Felix Meo (Maloja Pushbikers). 

 

Quick-Step lead the peloton and allowed only three minutes of an advantage to the breakaway. The leading trio was then caught on climb to Cerveny Kamen. Lorenzo Fortunato (EOLO-Kometa) crested the summit first and began his campaign which saw him finish the day in the best climber's jersey, with Jon Aguirre (Equipo Kern Pharma) his biggest challenger. It was already here when Ethan Vernon dropped from the peloton. 

 

Seven kilometres before the finish was the summit of the last categorised climb of the day. Only ten riders made it up front, with even Josef Cerny dropping for a moment, before coming back in the decent. Three kilometres before the finish Davide Bais (EOLO-Kometa) attacked strongly, but his rivals caught up with him in the final kilometre, which was uphill and on the light cobbles. 

 

Lorenzo Fortunato launched first but Archie Ryan of team Jumbo-Visma was stronger and got his first professional win. Young Irish talent finished fourth in Tour de l'Avenir just month ago. Second place was taken by Mauri Vansevenant (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) and Fortunato took third. 

 

New overall leader is Josef Cerny, after limiting his losses on the explosive finish. He leads the overall standings four seconds ahead of Stefan De Bod (Astana) and five seconds ahead of Czech rider Jakub Otruba (Elkov). Ethan Vernon and Martin Svrček hold on their jerseys, with only climber's jersey changing its wearer. Tomorrow it will be carried by Fortunato.
