Rebellin will be back in action after he suffered an injury in the Tour of Turkey








19.05.2015 @ 11:38 Posted by Emil Axelgaard

In the coming days CCC will be racing in three stage races simultaneoursly – in addition to the Giro d’Italia and the Bałtyk-Karkonosze Tour, it will participate in the Tour of Norway (2.HC). A 6-man orange squad will be competing  in this event.


The lineup for the Norwegian race is a combination of youth and experience. The team will be led by Davide Rebellin, who is coming back to racing after an injury sustained at the Tour of Turkey (dislocated shoulder). The Italian had a break for a few days but he recovered well and should be ready for the race.


He will surrounded by Stefan Schumacher, Adrian Kurek, Josef Cerny, Jan Hirt (all of them have taken part in the Szlakiem Grodów Piastowskich) and Piotr Brożyna. The latter three are among the youngest riders of the team at the age of 24 or less.


This year’s edition of the Tour of Norway consists of 5 stages. The first two seem to be less demanding, although it may not end with a typical bunch sprint.  On the third day of racing the riders will tackle the longest climb of the event – it’s around 10km long with an elevation of 800 meters. From the top to the finish there are only 23 kilometers. Stage 4 should also be a big factor in terms of the final general classification. There are two cat. 1 climbs on the route and a cat. 2 climb which leads to the finish line. The last stage ends with 4 laps in Eggemoen, with the final meters going uphill (cat. 3).


6 UCI World Tour teams confirmed their participation in the Tour of Norway (Katusha, Sky, Lotto-Soudal, Tinkoff-Saxo, Orica-GreenEDGE, Trek Factory), 8 ProContinental, and 7 Scandinavian Continental teams. Last year the race was won by Maciej Paterski who is now competing in the Giro d’Italia.


Lineup for Tour of Norway:

Davide Rebellin, Stefan Schumacher, Josef Cerny, Jan Hirt, Piotr Brożyna, Adrian Kurek
