Dennis surprises himself with second overall at Tour de Suisse
June 24, 2019 (05:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Rohan Dennis (Bahrain-Merida) surprised himself with a second place overall, behind winner Egan Bernal (Team Ineos), at the Tour de Suisse that ended on Sunday in Goms. Dennis said that standing on the overall podium and winning the opening time trial gives him confidence ahead of the Tour de France that starts on July 5. "It's been a good Tour de Suisse," Dennis said. "I really didn't expect to come here and get second overall and a stage win. With the queen stage today getting second on the stage after going off the front with Bernal was more than I ever thought I'd be able to do. But honestly a lot of work was done behind the scenes. "As you saw just even today, when the team rode with Ineos it looked like we were working with them but we had our little plan to try to take the win and do everything we possibly could but unfortunately Bernal was just a little too strong this week. But second overall, we can be really proud of that."ADVERTISEMENT Dennis took two other stage podiums during the Tour de Suisse, third on stage 7 intoSt. Gotthard and second on the queen stage 9 in to Goms behind stage winner Hugh Carthy (EF Education First). "We were going to the stage win but Hugh Carthy was a little bit too strong," Dennis said. Dennis said that he has hopes for stage wins at the Tour de France and that there are other riders, including Bernal, that will be higher up on the favourites list for the overall classification. "It's the Tour de France and it's a whole other level," Dennis said. "I'm not sure why I've got good form here ... it just happened. Sometimes you can't put for finger on why you're going so well. I'm going to take it as it is, be happy with this result and look towards the Tour for stages." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Bernal: I will try to help Geraint Thomas at the Tour de France
June 24, 2019 (05:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Egan Bernal's assured victory at the Tour de Suisse has marked him out among the favourites for next month's Tour de France but the Colombian has said that he is prepared to ride in the service of defending champion Geraint Thomas if the Welshman proves stronger than him. "I don't know. I don't choose to say that I'm the favourite. In any case, I will go with G [Thomas] " he will be our leader," Bernal said in a flash interview after sealing overall victory at the Tour de Suisse on Sunday. "I will try to help him. If he's better than me, for sure I will help him. I don't have any problems to help him; I'm just 22 years old so I think that I have a lot of Tours in front of me." Team Ineos will be without four-time Tour winner Chris Froome in July after he sustained a broken femur in a training crash on last week's Critrium du Dauphin, while Thomas' own Tour preparation suffered a setback when he was forced to abandon the Tour de Suisse after crash in the finale of stage 4.ADVERTISEMENT Bernal, who placed 15th overall on his Tour debut in 2018, was initially slated to lead Ineos at the Giro d'Italia, but he was ruled out of the corsa rosa after breaking his collarbone in a training crash of his own a week before the race. The Colombian showed few lingering effects of that setback at the Tour de Suisse, where he stepped seamlessly into the role of team leader following Thomas' abandon. He moved into the yellow jersey on stage 6 to Flumserberg, won the following day at San Gottardo and then defended his lead in Saturday's individual time trial. "I think that things changed when Thomas crashed because he was our leader when we came here," Bernal said on Sunday. "So after his crash I became the leader and it changed a lot for me."

ZLM Tour stage 3 stopped a lap early due to traffic on finishing circuit
June 24, 2019 (05:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Stage 3 of the ZLM Tour finished amid confusion in Landgraaf on Saturday after the race jury decided to finish the race a lap early after the police raised concerns about the level of traffic on the finishing circuit. Jumbo-Visma continued their domination of the ZLM Tour as Amund Grndahl Jansen won the 10-man sprint for stage victory while Mike Teunissen retained the overall lead, but the on-the-hoof decision to remove the final 10km lap was met with annoyance by the Lotto Soudal duo of Jasper De Buyst and Jelle Wallays, who were both part of the leading group in the finale. Wallays showed his displeasure with the situation by raising both middle fingers as he crossed the finish line in 6th place on the stage, while his teammate De Buyst took to social media to vent his frustration at the situation, though he later deleted the post.ADVERTISEMENT @ZLM_TOUR really? This is so b * llshit! You call yourself a tour preparation race ?! You want to have final laps but it's full of traffic and then you start changing the final so we know from nothing! So dangerous, De Buyst wrote on Twitter, according to Sporza. Race director Jean-Paul van Poppel expressed disappointment that the route had to be altered at such short notice but explained that the organisers had no option but to do so. As an organization we find it annoying that this decision had to be made, but the safety of the riders comes first," Van Poppel said. "We are going to evaluate this with the organization, so that hopefully this will no longer happen in the future." A police motorcycle outrider had to be taken to hospital after crashing into a car that had turned onto the race circuit, though De Telegraaf reports that he did not sustain serious injury in the incident.

Annemiek van Vleuten(Mitchelton-Scott) has finished putting the final touches on her form ahead of the Giro d'Italia Internazionale Femminile held from July 5-14. The defending champion just completed a mountainous training block that included a preview of the Passo di Gavia.

Last year, Van Vleuten won the Giro Rosa ahead of runner-up Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and teammate Spratt in third. Van Vleuten not only won the overall title but three stages and the points classification. Spratt won one stage and the mountain classification. Van Vleuten started the year unsure of her form after spending the off-season recovering from a significant knee injury sustained in a crash at the Innsbruck World Championships last September. She had an outstanding spring, however, winning Strade Bianche and Lige-Bastogne-Lige, along with a series of second places at Tour of Flanders, Amstel Gold Race, and Flche Wallonne.

Wiebes, Vos secure 1-2 for Netherlands at European Games
June 24, 2019 (05:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Lorena Wiebes continued her out-standing season winning the gold medal in the elite women's road race title at the European Games in Minsk. It was 1-2 for the Dutch as her teammate Marianne Vos placed second. Belarussian Tatsiana Sharakova was third. The European Games come around every four years and the last to win the title was AlenaAmialiusik from Belarus ahead of Kasia Niewiadoma from Poland and Anna van der Breggen (Netherlands). This year's race hosted 72 riders from 26 nations. The race was 120km in the city of Minsk where the women completed 8 laps of a 15km circuit that included a cobbled climb.ADVERTISEMENT An early breakaway emerged to include Hannah Ludwig (Germany), Omer Shapira (Israel) and Hanna Tserakh (Belarus) but the move was brought back by the strong Dutch team. The field was back together for the last lap where Anna van der Breggen (Netherlands) attacked on the climb, which served to reduce the main field to roughly 30 riders. Wiebes' teammates set her up for a perfectly-timed sprint victory with Vos crossing the line just behind her in second place, but already celebrating her teammate's victory. Wiebes has had one of her most successful seasons to date since turning professional last year. She started her career with the Parkhotel Valkenburg team and has signed a contract to remain with that team until the end of 2021. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

"They throw you in the deep water, the deep end of the pool, and hopefully it all works out well." Horner got an introduction to race commentary this year with NBC Sports at the Ardennes Classics Flche Wallonne and Lige-Bastogne-Lige. He said he sat in and watched Vande Velde for Flche and then picked up the live microphone for Lige with the understanding that it would also serve as an on-the-job tryout for this year's Tour de France.

Madison Genesis team set to fold at end of season
June 24, 2019 (05:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
British Continental squad Madison Genesis confirmed on Friday that the team would end at the end of this year. The team had established itself as one of the respected and consistent domestic teams since it was formed in 2012. The likes of Andrew Tennant, Tom Scully, Ian Bibby, Martyn Irvine, Connor Swift and John Dibben have all passed through its ranks. It is with a great regret that we are announcing Madison Genesis will cease racing at the end of this season. In this open letter to everyone that has supported us over the last seven years, we want to offer an explanation and use it as an opportunity to show our gratitude to our fans and sponsors that made the dream a reality, the team announced on Friday. Who would have thought back in 2012, that an unknown team could go on to create so many incredible, lasting memories? We started out with a recently retired Roger Hammond at the helm in 2012 and achieved everything we wanted and more. With too many highlights to mention, a nod must be given to winning the Tour Series in 2015 and of course helping Connor Swift to his National Road Race title in July last year.ADVERTISEMENT The British team currenty have a 13-strong roster after Swift departed for Arkea earlier in the year. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved and the team is very personal to me. We created a UK road cycle team brand loved by so many people, with a highly desirable image. We have worked incredibly hard to create a team ethos of good sportsmanship with a high level of fan base engagement which delivered some fantastic results and over the last seven years we helped some talented riders achieve their full potential, said CEO at Madison and Sportline, Dominic Langan. However, the market is constantly evolving and whilst I would be lying if I said we didnt have frustrations with certain aspects of the UK race scene, I feel, more importantly, that now is the right time to bring the team to an end so we can invest in other market segments which are now showing much more significant growth potential.

Groenewegen continues Tour de France build-up with a birthday present ZLM win
June 24, 2019 (05:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) continued his highly impressive build-up to the Tour de France with his second win in as many days at the ZLM Tour. The Dutchman won stage 1 and then backed that up with a second victory 24 hours later ahead of Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) and his own leadout man Mike Teunissen. The victory came on Groenewegens 26th birthday. Groenewegen, who won two stages at last years Tour de France, has now won nine races this year and will head to the Tour de France in two weeks time full of confidence. Jumbo-Visma controlled the peloton for much of the 168.1km stage, reeling in a four-man break before setting up Groenewegen for the victory.ADVERTISEMENT Winning is always nice. After my crash yesterday, I was not feeling great. The team did a perfect job and brought me in a good position for the sprint. They had the stage perfectly under control. The lead-out was perfect and that gives me confidence for the Tour. The goal is to fine-tune the lead-out and this is the ideal race for that, Groenewegen said. Third place was enough to put Teunissen into the race lead at the five-day race. Jumbo Visma have won all three stages so far, including the opening time trial through Jos van Emden, but their domination is not as easy as it looks, according to Teunissen. People might say that this race is not of WorldTour level, but that is what makes it so difficult. The whole peloton wants to surprise you, Teunissen said. Therefore, you have to make sure that you dont get boxed in. We constantly stayed together as a team. I started the sprint and I saw that there was a big gap, so I continued the sprint myself. Of course, I would like to win the ZLM Tour, but the most important thing is that someone of the team wins. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Chris Froome in surgery to repair fractures from Dauphine crash
June 13, 2019 (10:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froome (Team Ineos) is undergoing surgery to repair fractures he suffered in a crash during reconnaissance of the Criterium du Dauphine's stage 4 time trial route. A message posted on the four-time Tour de France winner's official Twitter account said Froome was undergoing surgery "torepair the multiple fractures", asking readers to keep Froome in their thoughts and saying they hoped to share more information on Thursday. Froome was previewing the stage 4 time trial course in Roanne on Wednesday with teammate Wout Poels when he apparently took his hands off the bars to clear his nose on a 60kph descent, and a gust of wind took out his front wheel, according to Team Ineos Principal Dave Brailsford.ADVERTISEMENT Team Ineos confirmed Wednesday evening that Froome suffered a fractured femur in the crash. In addition to the broken leg, Froome also fractured his elbow and ribs in the wreck, effectively ending his hopes of adding a record-tying fifth Tour de France title in July. In a statement released by the team previously, Brailsford said the team would turn their focus to Froome's future as he readjusts his goals. "Our primary focus now is obviously on ensuring Chris gets the very best possible care, which he will do, so he can recover as soon as possible," Brailsford said. "Even though we all recognise the risks involved in our sport, it's always traumatic when a rider crashes and sustains serious injuries."

Chris Froome out of the Tour de France " Podcast Special
June 13, 2019 (10:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) won the stage, Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) pulled on yellow, but the major talking point on stage 4 of the Critrium du Dauphin was the news that Chris Froome(Team Ineos) hadcrashed out with several fractures and will miss the Tour de France in July. Froome fell heavily and at high-speed during a recon of the time trial around Roanne, and after several hours of roadside treatment he was airlifted to hospital in Saint Etienne for further treatment. It's not yet known if surgery is required, but what's clear is that Froome's hopes of winning a fifth Tour de France are over. We hear from a shocked and upset Dave Brailsford, and also from Wout Poels, who was with Frooome when the crash occurred. Generasl classification riders Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) and Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo) also comment.ADVERTISEMENT As throughout this year's Dauphin, expert analysis is provided by Philippa York.

Wout van Aert: Cyclo-cross and time trials are both full gas start to finish
June 13, 2019 (10:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Wout van Aert's two podium finishes on the opening three stages of the Critrium du Dauphin for Jumbo-Visma were bettered on Wednesday with the Belgian's first WorldTour stage victory on the stage 4 time trial, putting 31 seconds into Tejay van Garderen (EF Education First) and 47 seconds into former time trial world champion Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb). The victory is the icing on the cake for the three-time cycle-cross world champion in his debut stage race for a WorldTour team, where a third-place finish on stage 1 and a second place finish on stage 3 saw van Aert in both the green sprinter's jersey and the white best young rider's jersey at the halfway point of the race. Van Aert has previously won a prologue time trial at the Baloise Belgium Tour in 2016, beating another former time trial world champion in Tony Martin. At only six kilometres in length, the prologue was a very different beast to today's 26.1-kilometre time trial, which featured a climb with around 200 metres of ascent at the midway point of the course.ADVERTISEMENT "I think it was a prologue that I won in Belgium a few years ago but this is a longer TT and at WorldTour level so of course, it's a bigger result," van Aert said in the stage winner's press conference in Roanne. "Obviously it's a surprise because I don't have too much WorldTour level time trials before and actually, we trained quite a bit over the last few weeks and worked on my position but not longer than a month so I didn't think that would be enough to compete on this level. It worked though, so I'm very happy." Van Aert's stellar week comes off the back of the Jumbo-Visma team announcement that van Aert will also be riding the Tour de France next month. The Belgian's consistent results during the past two Classics campaign have marked him as a serious contender during the spring but whether the performances could be replicated in a serious stage race was an unknown.

We will now turn our focus towards supporting him in his recovery," Usher said.ADVERTISEMENT Team Principal Dave Brailsford, who earlier ruled Froome out of the Tour deFrance before the fracture was confirmed, turned his focus to Froome's future.
