T-Mobile could celebrate a home win as Patrik Sinkewitz won the 46th Rund um den Henninger Turm toda
German Patrick Sinkewitz has added another success to T-Mobile's tally by winning the 46th Rund um den Henninger Turm. Sinkewitz attacked the leading trio inside the final kilometre to hold off Dario Cataldo (Liquigas) and Kurt-Asle Arvesen (CSC) for the honours in the May Day race. The race was shaped by a breakaway that started after 10km. Rene Obst (Lamonta) and Maint Berkenbosch (Regio Strom) initiated the move, and over the next 15km were joined by Magnus Bckstedt (Liquigas), Kurt-Asle Arvesen (CSC), Wolfgang Murer and Stefan Denifl (Elk Haus), Albert Timmer (Skil-Shimano), Maurizio Bellin (LPR), Martin Velits (Wiesenhof), and Marcel Wyss (Team Atlas-Romer's). They were able to get 4'05 clear of the peloton at the 67km mark, before some hard chasing by Gerolsteiner and T-Mobile brought them back to 2'40 at km 90. That was close enough for a 15-man counter move to try to bridge the gap to the leaders. The chasing group contained Sinkewitz, Robert Stadler (Volksbank) and Thomas Rohregger (Elk Haus), who were able to close the gap to the front riders on their own. The race situation changed and after 130km, there were nine riders in the lead: Cataldo, Sinkewitz, Arvesen, Pfannberger, Rohregger, Denifl, Stalder, Wyss and Berkenbosch. The peloton was almost two minutes back, but let this go out to between three and four minutes again. Gerolsteiner got some help from Milram with 30km to go, and the gap started to reduce. The lead group hit the finish line with one 9km lap to go with just 1'15 of its lead intact. That prompted Sinkewitz to attack, and he was joined by Arvesen and Cataldo. The three combined well to hold off the charging peloton over the final kilometres, and it was Sinkewitz who had the legs to attack again with 1km to go. The German took a popular victory ahead of Cataldo and Arvesen, with Heizmann, Wyss and Rohregger also eluding the clutches of the bunch to finish in the next highest placings.
