Only Groves faster than Bauhaus

One day after the dramatic collapse of his teammate Sonny Colbrelli, the German wheelprint Phil Bauhaus has just missed the victory on the second stage of the Catalonia Tour. The 27-year-old had to be beaten on Tuesday after 202.4 kilometers from L’Escala to Perpignan by a few centimeters to the Australian Kaden Groves. Third was the Frenchman Hugo Hofstetter. The leadership in the overall standings took over the Norwegian Jonas Iversby Hvideberg from the German DSM team.

Colbrelli was collapsed on Monday after the target sprint of the opponent stage and collapsed unconsciously. The Italian is currently recovering in the hospital of Girona and is on the way to improving. “In the beginning it was scary, but I’m already thinking about when I can race again,” Colrelli said the Italian newspaper “Gazzetta dello Sport”.

The bike professional can not remember the incident. “I crossed the line and then fallen to the ground,” explained Colberrelli. He remembers only when he had woken up in the hospital. In the mountain break in the finish of the first stage, Colbrelli had previously occupied second place. Spanish media reported that the 31-year-old had a cardiac lung revival after he had become unconscious.
