Strade Bianche

Cancellara owns white road of Strade Bianche

  In their final season, some riders might wind down a long career with a relaxed farewell tour. Dial it back, chill a bit, bask in the warm goodbyes. Not Fabian Cancellara. He’s going out the same way he came in: fast and furious and imperial. Such was his strength in winning his third Strade Bianche […]

Armstrong takes 1000th shot at USADA.

Lance is on another one of his media rounds. One thing that never changes is his absolute hatred for USADA’s head man Travis Tygart. If you could conjure up an image of Hell for Lance it would be marooned on a desert island with only one person for company: Tygart. Our guess is that Tygart […]

Jasper stuns sprinters in KBK.

Wowza. Young gun and best of all, genuine Belgian, Jasper Stuyven, went early and from long range and won Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, stealing the biggest win of his career from the sprinters. Somewhere his mentor and former development team boss Axel Merckx is pumping a first. Before signing with Trek (now Trek-Segafredo) Jasper was part of the […]

Juice

Does Boonen have enough orange juice to win Omloop?

That’s the burning question and we have a bit of true marketing genius from Lidl to thank for this recalibrating metaphor. The juice company (my assumption) put together a clever video with Boonen clipped in to his bike on a stationary setup attached to a large bucket of oranges and a juicing machine. The faster and […]

Ian Boswell’s private tutor: Professor Chris Froome.

Sky’s young American Ian Boswell is one lucky camper. He just scored himself a private one-on-one training block in South Africa with Chris Froome. It’s a Masters Class taught by the two time Tour de France winner and reigning champion. The original idea was that several riders would join Froome riding around the home roads in the Mpumalanga […]

CRASH! Rider safety goes down hard again.

A speed bump in the last 150 meeting coming into a fast left hand turn in a sprint finish? Really, seriously, honestly? That was the situation on stage two of the Tour de La Provence — or le tour du speed bump. The inevitable crash took out a half dozen riders and by amazing good […]
