Vichot to Vital Concept - Transfer Shorts
August 14, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Vital Concept have continued to hoover up WorldTour talent with the signing of Arthur Vichot from Groupama-FDJ. The 29-year-old has penned a two-year deal with the Breton squad, who have already snapped up Pierre Rolland and Cyril Gautier from the top tier of cycling. Vital Concept was set up by former rider Jerome Pineau and made its debut this season. They had hoped to gain entry into the Tour de France at the first time of asking but failed to earn the necessary wildcard. Their approach to the transfer window appears to have the Tour in mind. Former French national champion, Vichot has been a regular in FDJ's Tour line-up since turning professional with the team in 2010. Vichot, 29, said that the team's youth attracted him, calling it a 'breath of fresh air'.ADVERTISEMENT ''The nature of the project and its youth appeal to me," he said. "As soon as it was born, the Vital Concept Cycling Club emitted a seductive image and the team was envied. In the peloton, their jersey stands out and everything that is built around brings a breath of fresh air. ''We've been in contact with Jrme for a while, and his vision of cycling is what I want. He trusts me and I want to give him back by continuing to win races, being successful all season long and bringing my experience to the group.'

August 14, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]

Tour of Utah hoping to move back another week next year
August 13, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah will return for 2019 with tentative dates of August 12-18, moving back another week on the calendar after a similar move this year. The race is still waiting for UCI approval of the date change. If approved, the change would also affect the Colorado Classic, which this year runs the week after Utah. "We're just looking at how the calendar is lining up, and those are the dates we were told are going to be open," Tour of Utah Executive Manager John Kimball told Cyclingnews following the final press conference on Sunday. "So, again, we'll wait to hear from them so we can make that an official call."ADVERTISEMENT The 2018 Tour of Utah moved back a week in the calendar in hopes of attracting more WorldTour teams after division 1 participation slipped to just one team in 2017 from a high of six in 2014. With new dates this year, the race attracted five WorldTour teams. More distance from the Tour de France might allow more teams to consider the race. "We really hope so," Kimball said. "We love having the race open like this and being in the division we're at because we love to see young riders from all the different categories competing against the top guys. As many WorldTour teams as we can attract is fantastic. "We hope the further away it makes it a little easier and it lets them prepare for the Vuelta and other things," Kimball said, "but it's fantastic to hear that they love to come to Utah."

Adam Yates changes plans and heads to Vuelta a Espana
August 13, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After a disappointing Tour de France, Adam Yates will seek redemption in Spain as he changes his plans to join his twin brother Simon at the Vuelta a Espaa later this month. While Simon had always been scheduled to ride the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espaa this year, Adam was the designated leader for the Tour de France, with both set to play leading roles in the British team for the hilly World Championships road race in Austria in September. Adam Yates' hopes of bettering his fourth-place finish from the 2016 Tour went out of the window, however, as he fell out of contention on the second day in the Alps. He bounced back to hunt stages in the Pyrenees and was on course to win stage 16, only to crash on the descent of the Col de Portillon.ADVERTISEMENT On Monday, the Mitchelton-Scott team announced the 26-year-old, who hasn't raced since the Tour, would be sent to the Vuelta, insisting a "long-term focus" lay behind the decision. "We discussed post Tour de France the idea to race Adam as well. Obviously the Tour de France wasnt what wed hoped for Adam, but what it did highlight is that there are some things to work on, with him but also for the whole team in general," said sport director Julian Dean. "The idea is to continue the development of Adam and Simon by taking them both to the Vuelta, giving them another Grand Tour experience and trying to target the areas that we haven't got right, including getting some consistency across the three weeks."

Van Aert disappointed with bronze in European Championships
August 12, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
World cyclo-cross champion Wout van Aert proved yet again he can compete in major road races at the European Championships, even though he was disappointed to take the bronze medal behind title winner Matteo Trentin (Italy) and cyclo-cross rival Mathieu van der Poel (Netherlands), after the rain-soaked 230km race in Glasgow. Van Aert was part of the decisive move that formed in the final 50km of racing but was unable to come around Trentin in the sprint. "I'm really disappointed. I really thought that I could win right up to a few metres before the finish, van Aert told Het Nieuwsblad soon after the race. "I didn't manage to get past him and that's why I'm disappointed. A medal is nice but Im still find it a disappointment."ADVERTISEMENT Van Aert shared leadership of the Belgian team with Greg van Avermaet and Jasper Stuyven. He was to go with the attacks in the finale after Belgian worked to make their rivals suffer, while van Avermaet waited for the final two laps. When Nico Denz of Germany kicked off the finale of the race with 50km to go, van Aert made sure he was there, with teammate Xandro Meurisse giving vital support. "We didnt have our fastest riders in the team and so we had to take on the race. None of the sprinters were there in the finale and so our tactics were right," van Aert argued.

Peter Sagan abandons road race at European Championships
August 12, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Peter Saganwas forced to pull out of the men's road race at the European Championships held on Sunday, August 12 in Glasgow. The world champion was hunting his second title, after winning the race two years ago, but told the press ahead of the race that he was feeling ill and then later said that he was still suffering from his injuries sustained in a crash at the Tour de France. "I was not in good shape and I still have a lot of pain from the crash at the Tour de France," said Sagan, who crashed on a descent during stage 17 of the French Grand Tour. "It was a very technical circuit [in Glasgow], and it was hard, and in the end, well, I still have a lot of pain in my back and my hip. I think I need more time to recover from that crash."ADVERTISEMENT Sagan started the race as a favourite for the sprinter-friendly event. The men competed 16 laps of an undulating 14.4-kilometre-long circuit, for a total of 230.4km. "The course was OK, it was wet roads and a very technical circuit, but if you have no legs, for that circuit, than you need to be in good shape." In Glasgow, Sagan was up against other favourites; Kristoff, Greg Van Avermaet, Elia Viviani and John Degenkolb, all racing for their respective national teams. Sagan was caught out behind a split in the field as Belgium accelerated over a rise. Norway set a quick pace to protect their defending champion Alexander Kristoff, however, Sagan eased up and then subsequently pulled out of the race with 86km, six laps to the finish. He had also suffered a flat tire earlier in the race but was able to get back on. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Boels Dolmans celebrate third Vargarda TTT success
August 12, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Boels Dolmans fought through the rain to win the PostNord Vrgrda West Sweden team time trial on Saturday, posting a time of 53:07 minutes for the 42.5 kilometre course, just 28 seconds slower than their victory in the sun in 2017. Road world champion Chantal Blaak was part of the winning team and explained how trust between the riders was one of the keys to victory. It was wet for sure. But everyone had the same conditions and had to deal with the wet circumstances. To be honest, I prefer the rain instead of the wind from Friday, because there we were almost blown off the road," she said.ADVERTISEMENT "It is always hard to ride a team time trial in the rain because you cannot see much, so it is important that you trust each other. The key in a TTT is to keep it smooth all the way, it was hard from the beginning to the end, but we never lost our rhythm. We also did the climb and the corners in the end pretty well. Leah Kirchmann was part of the Team Sunweb squad that finished 16 seconds slower than Boels Dolmans. She also did not mind the rain so much. We did not win, but we are happy with how we executed our race, the Canadian said. The conditions were pretty epic, you could not really see a lot, it was raining so hard. Personally, I was kind of happy to finally not be so hot after this heat wave in Europe. So the rain was a little bit welcome, but you definitely had to be more careful in the corners.

Van Avermaet ready to take on Sagan, Viviani and Kristoff at European Championships
August 11, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Greg van Avermaet(BMC) has named himself as leader of the Belgian team for Sunday's road race at the UEC European Championships in Glasgow, insisting he is not afraid to go mano a mano with Peter Sagan and ride aggressively to avoid a sprint finish that would favour defending champion Alexander Kristoff and Italy's Elia Viviani. "The jersey is a major goal," he told Het Nieuwsblad, promising to wear black shorts with the mostly white jersey if he manages to win the 16-lap 230km race in the Glasgow city centre circuit. "The shape is good. I have come out of the Tour de France and have recovered from the Clasica San Sebastian which is on a difficult course. My form can't have gone after just a week and I got a course that seems tailored made for me. I'm very motivated to make the best of it on Sunday."ADVERTISEMENT In 2016, again two weeks after the Tour de France, Van Avermaet was on form and won the gold medal at the Rio Olympic Games. "In the Tour you always go a bit deeper than you can go in training and that makes for a super compensation two weeks later. I hope the same scenario repeats itself, that's why the title European is a goal," he explained. With so many important WorldTour races in August, van Avermaet had to push hard to get permission from his BMC team to target the European Championships. Thanks to a special charter flight organised by the BinckBank Tour organisers, he and several other riders will fly to Netherlands on Sunday night, in time to ride Monday's opening stage to Bolsward north of Amsterdam and the remaining six stages in the weeklong WorldTour stage race.

Bouhanni set to ride Vuelta a Espana despite quitting the Tour de Pologne
August 11, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Nacer Bouhannis complicated season continued at the Tour de Pologne, with the French sprinter forced to abandon the WorldTour stage race after stage 5 due to gastroenteritis. Cofidis team management, however, are confident that he will be able to recover in time for the Vuelta a Espaa, his major objective for the final part of the 2018 season. Bouhanni's failure to secure a place in the Cofidis team for the Tour de France was enshrouded in controversy after a series of well-publicized disagreements. Bouhanni told Cyclingnews at the start of the Tour de Pologne that he was building his form steadily and was looking forward to the Vuelta a Espaa, where he had won stages in 2014. However he struggled to compete in the three bunch sprints at the Tour de Pologne, with his best result 13th on stage 1 in Krakow.ADVERTISEMENT Cofidis directeur sportif Roberto Damiani said that Bouhannis latest exit was in no way planned but should not affect his participation in the upcoming Vuelta a Espaa, which start on Saturday, August 25 in southern Spain. "It wasnt expected, but after the first couple of stages he could barely eat and he had real problems with gastro. So we decided not to take any risks because he was really not well and the Vuelta a Espaa is barely 15 days away," Damiani told Cyclingnews on the final day of the race. "The idea was to do these last two stages and work on his endurance. But if youre ill and you're working on your endurance, you can end up doing yourself a lot more damage.

Tour of Utah: Reijnen overcomes illness to fight in Salt Lake City sprint
August 11, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Kiel Reijnen (Trek-Segafredo) came to the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah with high hopes of adding to the stage wins he claimed here in 2015 and 2016, but his plans went awry when he was hit by sinus infection earlier in the week. The 32-year-old American won the opening stage of the race in 2015 with UnitedHealthcare and returned the following year with Trek-Segafredo to take stage 5 in Bountiful. Reijnen missed the race last year, so after a long spring of working hard for his teammates in Europe, he was looking forward to racing for stage wins in Utah this year. I put a lot into preparing for this race because its always one that suits me, Reijnen said. I definitely came here with intentions of winning a stage, but then I came down with a sinus infection somewhere between the prologue and the first stage. It was really poorly timed, but sometimes thats life, and I think I had to reset my expectations after that.ADVERTISEMENT Reijnen finished fifth in the stage 1 bunch kick in Cedar City on a finishing circuit that normally would have suited his skills. He finished 10th in the bunch kick at the end of stage 3 in Layton City as UnitedHealthcares Travis McCabe claimed his second stage win of the 2018 race and moved into the record books as the races most prolific winner. Reijnen kicked it up a couple of notches on Friday in Salt Lake City, finishing third to Jasper Philipsen (Hagens Berman Axeon) and McCabe on the difficult urban circuit with an uphill finish. Reijnen finished with the same time as Philipsen and McCabe, but the lead pair had pulled away from Reijnen and the bunch by the line and were clearly a peg above the rest of the sprinters in Utah. Today it was clear that I wasnt sprinting for the win, and thats really disappointing, Reijnen said.But I also wanted to do as much as I could because the guys were really good those first two days looking after me. They put a lot of faith in me even though I was sick, so I tried to pay that back a bit.

Kwiatkowski savours Tour de Pologne victory after courageous final defence
August 11, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
History turned full circle for Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) at the Tour de Pologne after the Pole managed to secure overall success on the same finish where he lost the race six years ago. In 2012, Kwiatkowski lost to Italys Moreno Moser in Bukowina, eventually finishing second overall place. This time despite a dangerous late attack by Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), the Pole limited any time loss, finishing sixth at the line and so kept the leaders yellow jersey by 14 seconds. It was a narrow margin, but enough of a gap to seal the Team Sky rider's first ever victory in his countrys biggest stage race, which also came with two stage wins at Szczyrk, where he took the lead, and Bielsko-Biala.ADVERTISEMENT The Tour de Pologne is Kwiatkowskis second WorldTour stage race win after taking Tirreno-Adriatico this spring. His success and his form bodes well for his upcoming participation in the Vuelta a Espaa, which he led in 2016, and in the World Road-Race Championships in Innsbruck. The Pole won the world title in Ponferrada, Spain in 2014. Thats the Tour of Pologne Youve got those emotions until the end of the race because everything is so close, Kwiatkowski said afterwards, savouring his victory. We didnt panic as a team; without the boys I wouldnt have been able to defend the jersey. They rode an amazing race; first Ian Stannard and Lukas Wisniowski, then Michal Golas and Salvatore Puccio, Pavel Sivakov and Sergio Henao at the end. They were incredibly strong.
