BinckBank Classics Tour (Mauro)

maps/tours/view/10051

Il mio percorso è una rivisitazione del BinckBank Tour, trasformato in un Classics Tour, una corsa a tappe disputata sulle strade delle grandi classiche. La prima tappa si disputa quindi sulle strade dell’Amstel Gold Race, la seconda è dedicata al vento che spesso le condiziona, la terza è sulle rotte della Freccia Vallone, la quarta su quella della Liegi, la quinta si conclude all’uscita di uno dei tratti più celebri della Roubaix e l’ultima è una cronometro con epilogo sul Muro di Grammont, tempio del Giro delle Fiandre.

Anche per questo motivo ho voluto che tutte le tappe fossero importanti per la classifica, anche l’unica dedicata ai velocisti e che potrebbe essere fortemente condizionata dal vento (anche perché, rispetto alla tappa del Tour del 2015, c’è un circuito finale sul ponte-diga dell’isola artificiale di Neeltje Jans)

Inseriti due sconfinamenti: i primi 9,5 Km della prima tappa sono in territorio tedesco e gli ultimi 7,5 Km della quinta tappa sono in territorio francese

My path is a reinterpretation of the BinckBank Tour, transformed into a Classics Tour,a stage race disputed on the streets of the great classics. The first stage is then played on the streets of the Amstel Gold Race, the second is dedicated to the wind that often affects them, the third is on the routes of the Flèche Wallonne, the fourth on that of Liege, the fifth ends at the exit of one of the most famous features of Roubaix and the last is a stopwatch with epilogue on the Wall of Grammont, temple of the Tour of Flanders.

Also for this reason I wanted all the stages to be important for the classification, also the only one dedicated to the sprinters and that could be strongly influenced by the wind (also because, compared to the 2015 Tour stage, there is a final circuit on the bridge-dam of the artificial island of Neeltje Jans)

Two overdrafts are included: the first 9.5 km of the first stage are in German territory and the last 7.5 km of the fifth stage are in French territory

My BinckBank Tour 2018: maps/tours/view/10042

General Presentation:

- Total length: 1123,31 km
- 1 prologue, 1 flat stage, 3 hilly stages, 2 cobbles stages
- 4 countries visited: Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg.
- Climbs: 23 4th Category, 10 3rd Category and 3 2nd Category.

Prologue: Antwerpen > Antwerpen (ITT - 12,55 km)

Yes, this is a prologue! An ITT is considered as a prologue when it's under 13 km. We start in the famous port of Antwerpen.

1st stage: Antwerpen > Cuijk (Flat - 203,52 km)

This stage is globally flat, except a categorized climb in the last 30 km to decide the first KOM jersey. This stage is surely for sprinters. We're in Netherlands so riders should take care of wind.

2nd stage: Cuijk > Aachen (Hilly - 191,50 km)

This stage is travelling the roads of Amstel Gold Race, with some new climbs like the Ingbererberg and Côte de Beusdael, in Belgium, and it finishes in Germany with the city of Aachen which is very close to belgian and dutch border. We're in Germany less than 5 km.

3rd stage: Aachen > Vielsalm (Hilly - 147,07 km)

This stage is climbing some famous climbs like Redoute or Stockeu, but new climbs are introduced in this stage like Col de Targnon or Montée du Paradis. This stage can be very interesting due to proximity of climbs in the last km's.

4th stage: Vielsalm > Luxembourg (Hilly - 177,20 km)

The country of Luxembourg is very hilly, as we can see in this stage. Climbs can be very steep, like Rollingerberg or Beringerberg that I found myself. These climbs can be launchers for punchers.

5th stage: Arlon > Wavre (Plain - 209,40 km)

This is the longest stage of this BinckBank Tour. The cobbles aren't really hard but they can be with the last very exhausting days. The end of the stage with the cobbles is a little bit hilly so gaps may appear.

6th stage: Wavre > Geraardsbergen (Hilly - 182,07 km)

Today for the last stage, we're on the roads of Ronde Van Vlaanderen, which are not enough exploited in real BinckBank Tour in my opinion, but I kept the traditional finish in middle part of Kapelmuur.

This is my version of the BinckBankTour maps/tours/view/10093

This BBTour is 7 days long and contains 2 plain sprint stages, 1 time trial, 3 hilly stages and 1 stage with cobblestones.

Stage 1 starts in the north of The Netherlands and finishes after 170km in Veenendaal. The Golden KM is 8,5 km before the finish and lays on a little hill.
Stage 2 starts in Rhenen at the gates of the zoo 'Ouwehands Dierenpark'. The finish is in Belgium in Mechelen in front of the zoo 'Planckendael'. Just 165 km for this second flat stage.
Stage 3 is a short time trial in the Dutch city Valkenswaard. Just under 15 km long. This is the first important day for the GC riders.
Stage 4 is a mini-Amstel Gold Race. A lot of turning and little steep climbs in the Dutch Limburg province and Belgium. The finish lays on top of het Drielandenpunt (Three Countries Point) on the border of Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany.
Stage 5 brings Luxemburg in this BinckBank Tour. The initial purpose of the ENECO-tour was a stage race in the Benelux. So i took Luxemburg in my race. A difficult hilly race with finish in Wiltz.
Stage 6 is a plain stage and brings us from Wiltz through the Arden-region to Perwez. It will not be a hilly race but its a cobbled stone race at the end. Important and difficult for some GC-riders it hink.
Stage 7 is the well know stage to Geraardsbergen with finish on the Muur. The final day will bring a spectacular race.

I hope you all like my version. :happy:

My Binckbanck Tour is a real hard one. To begin with two flat possibly windy stages. Third stage is a short ITT, and then we have four stages for the classics riders.

maps/tours/view/10036
Spoiler!
Stage 1
Image
The race starts in Groningen in the north of the Netherlands. The first stage takes the riders from there to Hoorn. With a passage over the Houtribdijk in the final 20km. This is a flat stage but the wind could keep the sprinters from the victory.

Stage 2
Image
The second stage takes the riders from Spijkenisse to Goes. This should be a spectacular stage with 100% chance for echelons and time gaps.

Stage 3
Image
The third stage is a short ITT in Oss.

Stage 4
Image
The fourth stage is the first hilly one. The race goes to the south of The Netherlands where some climbs of the Amstel Gold Race are in the parcours. After the Golden Km on the Cauberg there is still 20km to go towards the finish line in Lanaken. So this could be a small group that goes to the finish or a reduced bunch that comes back together.

Stage 5
Image
The fifth stage is the queen stage through the Ardennes. With start in Verviers and finish on the legendary F1 circuit of Spa-Francorchamps. A lot of steep climbs in the final, this is a mini version of Liege-Bastogne-Liege. The pure climbers must take their time here for the next stages.

Stage 6
Image
The sixth stage is a cobbled one. There are no excepional hard cobbled sections but its uphill and downhill, narrow roads, ... The finish is shortly after a cobbled section so small time gaps are expected.

Stage 7
Image
The final stage takes the riders from Binche to Geraardbergen, with the classic finish on the Vesten. But the road towards Geraardsbergen is quite harder than a normal Binckbanck Tour. This stages had a first part of cobbled climbs before going tot he only local lap. This should make the race harder, and with the koppenberg in it there should be some gaps with a long distance to go. Also after the Taaienberg the race keeps going on narrow roads wich makes it harder to regroup and make a chase. If they want to, the riders can make a it really hard stage.
