Abu Dhabi Tour 2018 | Stage 3 Race Report #Germany #travel





Last call for the sprinters today at the Abu Dhabi Tour – 133km of pan flat racing to come through the heart of the city, and the fast men would be looking for one more opportunity to crank out some serious power in the finale.

The time trialists and climbers get their chance on stages 4 and 5. Would we see our third different winner in the space of three days?

Despite a very quick start, 4 riders managed to break away from the pack after roughly 17km of counter attacks. Bardiani CSF’s Marco Maronese and Sam Brand of Novo Nordisk were joined by Sergey Firsanov of Gazprom Rusvelo and 3 time Grand Tour stage winner Pierre Rolland of EF Education First Drapac.

The first checkpoint en route was km46 – Maronese taking 8 points towards the intermediate sprints classification – Bardiani’s hard work over these opening stages means that they’ve got a lot of potential riders that could win this competition.

Gazprom-Rusvelo weren’t too happy about this however. They got on the front to shut down the break with 54km still to run, keen on keeping Nikolay Trusov in the black jersey. They had another chance to extend his lead at the 2nd intermediate sprint at km81, but Elia Viviani had other ideas – he added 3 bonus seconds here to cement his lead at the top of the overall standings.

The high pace continued up until a potentially important turn in the road, where the wind once again played its part, and several teams tried to force some splits like we saw yesterday. Alexander Kristoff and a handful of other riders were held up by a crash, but despite that brief moment of panic, the peloton held together as we headed down the long highway back towards the finish. Quick-Step Floors were beginning to take control at the head of affairs, led by young James Knox – if there was a classification for most time spent on the front, he’d be winning it.

Things kicked back into life in the final kilometer, Quickstep still had numbers, while Mitchelton-Scott were challenging with Luka Mezgec leading Caleb Ewan through the final right hand bend. In the end we saw our closest finish so far at the Abu Dhabi Tour, a blanket finish involving Viviani, Phil Bauhaus, Pascal Ackermann and Marcel Kittel. We had to go to the photo booth, and it was Bauhaus that nicked it at the line from Kittel, with Ackermann rounding out an all-German podium.

A first win of the season for Sunweb, and their young German sprinter will be delighted to have got the better of a very strong field.

Viviani took 4th on the day, and those bonus seconds give him an outright lead in the general classification. We don’t expect him to keep that red jersey for long though. Tomorrow is the first individual time trial in the short history of the Abu Dhabi Tour, and the specialists have brought their TT rigs to the middle east to tackle this 12.6km course, so you can expect some very fast times and a potential new leader in the overall standings.

Best Portuguese Food – GIANT TIGER PRAWNS and Seafood at Cervejaria Ramiro in Lisbon, Portugal! #Germany #travel





►Check out my Lisbon Travel Guide [PDF eBook]:
►Subscribe to my videos:
►Camera I use:

On Day 25 of our Round The World Trip with Star Alliance we were in Lisbon, Portugal. Along with visiting some famous attractions in Lisbon, nothing compared to having one of the best seafood meals of my life at the legendary Cervejaria Ramiro.

1:48 Elevador de Santa Justa – Located just a short walk from Praça de D. Pedro IV (Rossio Square), the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Santa Justa lift is a historical elevator that you can ride to the top for a great view of Lisbon. Since I was in the area and it wasn’t busy I decided to go for it. Price – 5 EUR

4:31 Castelo de São Jorge – From Praça da Figueira we took the bus up the hill to Castelo de São Jorge, which is one of the top things to do in Lisbon. After paying the entrance fee, we walked around the castle, which is situated on the top of one of Lisbon’s hills as a citadel. The views of the surrounding area and the castle itself were spectacular. This is a must visit attraction in Lisbon. Price – 8.50 EUR per person

8:01 Epic seafood at Cervejaria Ramiro – If you ask anyone where to eat the best Portuguese seafood meal in Lisbon, undoubtedly the number one response you’ll hear is Cervejaria Ramiro. It’s a seafood palace of a restaurant that’s popular with both locals and tourists alike, everyone comes for the abundance of incredibly fresh seafood. It actually almost feels like a Chinese restaurant when you’re eating at Cervejaria Ramiro from the liveliness and the fresh seafood tanks. We started off with some prawns in garlic sauce and then ate clams in garlic and then had crab. The crab roe was intensely amazing, and I’ve never seen a crab with so much roe in my life. Next we had some of the greatest shrimp / prawns I’ve ever seen. I ordered 2 tiger prawns which were the size of lobsters, and then 2 scarlet prawns, a type I had never eaten before. Both were incredibly delicious, some of the best prawns and seafood I’ve ever tried. Finally, my last seafood dish at Cervejaria Ramiro was a plate of goose barnacles and some oysters. For steak at Cervejaria Ramiro one of the popular things you have to eat is called a prego, which is steak sandwich. After eating all that seafood, somehow the steak sandwich hits the spot. Our total price – 108 EUR for everything we ate and ordered.

26:23 Lisbon Cathedral – The Lisbon Cathedral is one of the first cathedrals and earliest buildings in Lisbon, and it’s a fantastic sight to see.

27:31 Rua Augusta Arch – After walking around the Lisbon Cathedral we then headed to the main plaza of Lisbon and walked around the Rua Augusta Arch and got a nice view of the Tagus river.

29:10 Piri piri chicken at Frangasqueira Nacional – Finally to end this amazing day of Portuguese food and attractions in Lisbon, we headed to Frangasqueira Nacional to try their piri piri chicken. It’s just a small takeaway restaurant, but the passion of the owners is evident. The piri piri chicken was awesome. Total price – 14 EUR

This was probably my favorite day of our trip to Lisbon, with a perfect mix of incredible Portuguese food, especially seafood at Cervejaria Ramiro and visiting attractions in Lisbon.
