IAM Cycling prepares for final race at Il Lombardia
September 27, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The IAM Cycling team will cease to exist after this Saturday's Il Lombardia, the final Monument of the 2016 season. Going out with the team will be 2011 Lombardia winner Oliver Zaugg, who announced his retirement at age 35. "This race was always one of my favourite races, even before my victory. With that in mind, it is all the better that I can have this race also be where I will finish my 13 year career as a professional cyclist," Zaugg said. "In my career, I have experienced many beautiful moments, and I certainly hope that I can gracefully conclude this chapter of my life as a professional cyclists on Saturday at the Tour of Lombardy."ADVERTISEMENT The IAM Cycling squad has had the best results of their four-year history this season, racking up 17 victories including stages of the Giro d'Italia (Roger Kluge), Tour de France (JarlinsonPantano) and Vuelta a Espaa (Mathias Frank and JonasVan Genechten), and the overall Tour de Wallonie and Baloise Belgium Tour with Dries Devenyns. Directeur sportif Kjell Carlstrm is realistic about the team's chances in its final outing in Bergamo. "Our goal will be to have a rider in the top-10, and if everything goes perfectly, we should even have a chance at a podium position," Carlstrm said. "With Mathias Frank and Jarlinson Pantano, we have two riders who should excel at this sort of race. The race distance, the profile, and also the fact that it comes so late in the season will make this event especially difficult. You really have to have a super day to be successful here." The parcours has been altered from previous seasons, with the final 100km especially hilly. The 11.6km Valico di Valcava ascent will wake up the riders' climbing legs for the five climbs to follow. The Berbenno, Sant'Antonio, Miragolo San Salvatore and Selvino climbs come back-to-back, leaving a 12km descent then 3.2 flat kilometers before the short, sharp Bergamo Alta just 3.1km before the finish line at kilometre 241.

Felline stays with Trek-Segafredo through 2018
September 26, 2016 (13:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
26-year-old Fabio Felline has renewed his contract with Trek-Segafredo through the end of the 2018 season. The two-year deal comes on the heels of the Italian's points classification win in the Vuelta a Espaa. Felline's season was hampered by a serious crash in the neutralised section of the Amstel Gold Race that left him with a broken nose and a fracture to the base of his skull. The injuries kept him out of competition for two months. He returned for the Italian championships, coming 8th behind Manuel Quinziato in the time trial, and by the Tour of Poland in July he had re-found his form, coming second overall. Although he fell shy of winning his first Grand Tour stage in the Vuelta a Espaa, his five top-three finishes earned him the overall green jersey and a new contract with the Trek-Segafredo team.ADVERTISEMENT General Manager Luca Guercilena was impressed with how Felline came back from his injuries. "Fabio has been very professional since the beginning, but I have to admit I am very, very proud of the way he behaved after his horrifying crash in this year's Amstel Gold Race," Guercilena said. "He was really focused on his recovery and worked hard to be back on the bike as soon as he could. It was a long and hard road, but when he took second place overall in the Tour of Poland, we knew right away he was back, and in a big way! How he took and defended his green jersey in the Vuelta was world class. With top-3 places on very diverse parcours, he proved to be able to surpass himself and to surprise everyone. "It goes without saying we are very pleased to have re-signed Fabio for the next two seasons. With the development he has undergone, I expect him to show us some great things in the coming years."

Van Aert to ride Jingle World Cup cross race despite fracture toe
September 24, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Cyclo-cross world champion Wout van Aert has confirmed he will ride todays elite mens World Cup Jingle Cross race in Iowa City despite fracturing his left big toe during the CrossVegas race on Wednesday. The Belgian travelled to Iowa City on Thursday night after a medical visit and x-rays confirmed the hairline fracture. Van Aert revealed he was in pain during a training ride on Friday but said he will race the World Cup event. "The feeling after training was not bad. The swelling did not increase after the training ride, so therefore I decided to start in the second round of the World Cup, Van Aert said in a message posted on his personal website.ADVERTISEMENT "Today (Friday) I have a cycled 45km with my teammates. That test wasnt that bad thanks to the taped toes and a painkiller but I didnt real put force on the pedals because I couldnt. After consulting with my family doctor, I decided not to do a route reconnaissance, which would have been an additional burden. Van Aert won the CrossVegas World Cup race despite an early crash on a set of stairs. He fought his way back into the mix and eventually won alone, scoring maximum World Cup points. The pain in his toe emerged overnight, hampering his travel to Iowa City and his hopes of a second victory and early lead in the World Cup standings. "Once back at the hotel we put ice on the foot, but the swelling was really intense. When I woke up Thursday morning, I could barely take any steps and I quickly realized that there was more to it. We decided to visit a local doctor, who sent us in turn to an orthopedic center. After taking the x-rays, it turned out that there was indeed a crack in my big toe, he explained. Van Aert is hoping that the adrenaline of Saturdays race will help him handle the pain in his toe. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
