Van der Poel wins Giro start – Kämna

A sharp attack by Lennard Kämna was unsuccessful, instead Mathieu van der Poel also got the pink jersey at the Tour de France 2021 at the start of the 105th Giro d’Italia. The Dutch, grandson of the bike star Raymond Poulidor, who died in 2019, won on Friday from the spectacular Giro dropout in Hungary after 195 kilometers from Budapest to Visegrad ahead of Biniam Girmay from Eritrea and the Spaniard Pello Bilbao.

Kämnas proves a good shape – Ewan falls in the sprint

Kämna, who attacked a good two and a half kilometers on the final climb and tear apart the field apart, caused a sensation. “It was pretty spontaneous. When I realized that I was in a good position and the field came to a standstill, I thought: this is a good moment to attack. In the end it didn’t work out, but it was still nice. My legs exploded at the back, “said Kämna.

But the competition was warned. The tourist winner from 2020 was obtained again 800 meters before the finish line – and the expected scenario with van der Poel was the winner. In a similar way, the four-time cross world champion won the second tour stage on the Mur-de-Brittany last year and then worn the yellow jersey for six days. “It is incredible to get the pink jersey. It cost a lot of energy to catch up with the boys in the final,” said van der Poel. The final was overshadowed by a fall of the Australian sprint star Caleb Ewan.

However, a lot is still to be expected from Kämna. The 25-year-old presented himself in a top form. At the Giro he wants to go hunting and helping the three top drivers around Emanuel Buchmann in the fight for the podium. Buchmann reached the finish line as the 16th with four seconds behind in the circle of co -favorites.

On Saturday, the first of a total of only two individual time trial is on the program. 9.2 kilometers are to be covered in Budapest. The Giro dropout in Hungary ends on Sunday before the entourage travels to Sicily. Then it continues on Tuesday.
