Giro dItalia: Dumoulin and Nibali kiss and make up after war of words
May 26, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Tom Dumoulin and Vincenzo Nibali have shaken hands and made up after their spat during and after Thursdays Giro d'Italia stage in the Dolomites, with the Dutchman apologizing to the Italian for saying he would be happy to see him and Nairo Quintana lose their spots on the podium because they had formed a pact against him and had refused to work in the finale of the stage. Dumoulin, Nibali and Quintana allowed Thibaut Pinot, Domenico Pozzovivo and Ilnur Zakarin to go clear and refused to lead the chase in a battle of nerves and responsibility. Pinot pulled back 1:02 and is now just 24 seconds behind Nibali, who remains in third. The overall classification is tight ahead of Fridays mountain finish to Piancavallo, with six riders within 2:07 of the maglia rosa. "They are only focusing on me and trying to make me lose instead of trying to win," Dumoulin complained to Eurosport after Thursdays stage. I really hope that riding like this they will lose their podium spot in Milan, that would be really nice, and I would be really happy." Nibali heard those words while on his team bus and quickly fired back. I don't care what Tom says, I think he's a bit too cocky. I've never talked that way. He's shown he's strong in the race but he's shouldn't talk so much. He could lose the podium too, anything can happen, Nibali told Italian television.ADVERTISEMENT Dumoulin took offence at those words and fired back in his post-stage press conference. However, some behind-the-scenes diplomacy seems to have cooled both riders temperaments and they shook hands and talked to Italian television on Friday morning before rolling out of San Candido for stage 19. The stage climbs the Cima Sappada but it seem there will be nothing like in 1987 when Stephen Roche attacked his own teammate and maglia rosa Roberto Visentini, sparking one of the biggest controversies ever seen at the Giro dItalia. We need to talk with the legs and not with the mouth. I said something that came from the emotions. It was not good and Im sorry that I was not very respectful, Dumoulin said on Italian television.

Sagan and Kittel train at altitude in USA ahead of Tour de France
May 23, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Following the Tour of California, Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Marcel Kittel (Quick-Step Floors) have decided to stay on in the United States for a spell of altitude training. According to Belgian newspapers Het Laatste Nieuws and Het Nieuwsblad, Sagan will train in Utah while Kittel has headed to Colorado. Sagan has been out in the United States since the beginning of May and spent time training up at Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada on the border between California and Nevada. Now he will travel to Utah for two weeks as he makes his final preparations for the next part of his season. Sagan will return to racing at the Tour de Suisse next month before a tilt at a sixth green jersey at the Tour de France. Peter has done more altitude training in the past in the United States, always with good results afterwards, Bora-Hansgrohe press officer Gabriele Uboldi told Het Laatste Nieuws. Peter will train for 12 days, also accompanied by his wife so he can prepare in peace for the second part of the season.ADVERTISEMENT Kittel will have company at his altitude training camp in Utah with teammates Zdenek Stybar, Fabio Sabatini and Jack Bauer staying stateside along with a mechanic and a coach. Like Sagan, Kittel spent some time at altitude in the United States ahead of the Tour of California. Kittel is set to use the five-day Ster ZLM Toer as his final preparation for the Tour de France in July. Both Kittel and Sagan won a stage each during the Tour of California, which was won overall by LottoNL-Jumbos George Bennett ahead of Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe).

This article originally appeared on BikeRadar Are you lusting after some of that Zipp carbon aero goodness but don't want to spend the equivalent of a new kitchen on a set of wheels? If so, Zipp's new 302 Carbon Clincher might be for you. This 45mm-deep, 1,299 / $1,500, wheelset offers the cheapest ticket yet to Zipp's full-carbon prom, and it's launching in both rim brake and disc brake variants. If that's just not expensive enough for your tastes, Zipp has also announced a disc version of its flagship 454 NSW Carbon Clincher. The 454 made waves when it launched last year with its unique whale-inspired Sawtooth rim profile, which claims to reduce aerodynamic drag while also improving crosswind behaviour.ADVERTISEMENT Interestingly, despite the recent launch of Zipp's new tubeless road tyres, none of the three new wheelsets are tubeless-ready, although it seems more than likely that future versions will be.

Giro d'Italia: Yates sprints to best Grand Tour result yet in Bergamo
May 22, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
On paper stage 15 of the Giro d'Italia didn't look suited to the characteristics of Adam Yates but the Brit impressed in the Bergamo finale to finish in fourth place. While Yates recorded his best result yet in four Grand Tours, the Orica-Scott rider also moved up to 11th on GC ahead of the decisive third and final week of the 100th Giro. "I didn't quite have it in the sprint. I felt good in the finale but Jungels is a good 10kg heavier than me and I couldn't match his power," Yates said of the stage won by Bob Jungels (Quick-Step Floors).ADVERTISEMENT "I hit out just after 300metre to go, but perhaps I went too early. I hit the front in the final 50metres before everyone flew past me. Congratulations to Bob Jungels though, it was a good victory." Yates was sitting in third place overall on the morning of the first summit finish of the race to Blockhaus only to drop to 16th after being involved in a crash with a police moto. While the likes of Geraint Thomas was ultimately forced to abandon the race due to his injuries from the crash, Yates escaped with only minor injuries and had steadily been improving his GC position in the second week. The 24-year-old explained that the work of his teammate has been instrumental in climbing the GC and is looking forward to finishing off the Giro in his preferred terrain of the mountains.

Kruijswijk moves up a notch in Giro dItalia
May 21, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Steven Kruijswijk hopes that his luck has changed at the Giro dItalia. After famously crashing into a snowbank while wearing the leaders jersey in the race in 2016, the LottoNL-Jumbo captain was looking to fight for the win again this year. After suffering in the earlier mountain stages and losing time to his rivals, he hopes now to be back on the right foot. Kruijswijk finished ninth on Saturdays Oropo stage, finishing together with Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain Merida) only 44 seconds behind stage winner Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb). "Today, I could go a little deeper and felt better than last week, he said in a team press release. I still have confidence in myself and thought, I'm just getting up to full speed and I'll see how I can finish. Fortunately, I could keep it up. Something we can work with, but of course, I still have to do better."ADVERTISEMENT The Dutchmans problems started immediately on the first stage, as he was caught behind a crash shortly before the three km marker and he lost 13 seconds. He went into the fourth stage ending atop Mt. Etna with confidence, but once again a crash threw him back. Kruijswijk was one of many who hit the road at a right-hand turn to start the climb. He was quickly back on his bike, and ended up only 23 seconds down. Things went well again until the Blockhaus stage, where he finished 12th but 2:43 down. On the following time trial, he again lost 2:43 to finish in 20th place. Although he was over five minutes down he was still in 10th place in GC. But another two minute loss on the many climbs of stage 11, which knocked him down to twelfth, was followed by two easier flat stages, leading up to a better result in the closing climb on Saturday and hopes of better luck in the final week of climbing.

Giro d'Italia: Hansen's Grand Tour run continues despite crash
May 21, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Adam Hansens run of Grand Tour participations is safe for now as the Australian escaped serious injury following a crash on stage 14 of the Giro dItalia. Hansen, who had been one of several riders trying to get into the breakaway, crashed on the run into the one and only climb of the day to Santuario di Oropa. The Lotto Soudal rider was able to finish the stage in one of the last groups on the road some 16 minutes behind the winner Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb). His team confirmed immediately after the stage that he had injured his hand but would undergo further examinations. Hansen allayed any fears that his run of Grand Tours was about to come to an abrupt end with a tweet on Sunday morning. Thanks for all the support guys. It's just my hand, not my legs so no excuse. It's race time, he wrote.ADVERTISEMENT Hansen has ridden every Grand Tour going since the 2011 Vuelta a Espana, completing all of them. This years Giro dItalia is his 17th straight participation at a Grand Tour, giving him the record for the most consecutive participations. He is one of only 33 riders to have ridden all three Grand Tours - the Giro dItalia, Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana " in the same season. He is still 10 participations short of the most total Grand Tour rides, a record held by Matteo Tosatto who competed in 34 three-week races in his 20-year career. Hansens Grand Tour run has faced bigger challenges in the past. In 2015, he dislocated his shoulder on stage 2 of the Tour de France, a repeat of an injury that he had suffered almost a month earlier. Despite the injury, he was able to finish the race. There is still a week of racing for Hansen to get through with the Giro dItalia taking on some of its most challenging stages to come. The first test of Hansens hand will be stage 15 from Valdengo to Bergamo, which may prove a chance for the overall contenders. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Aude Biannic left traumatised after being hit by car in training
May 20, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope rider Aude Biannic says that shes still traumatised after being hit by a car during training. Biannic had been training on her time trial bike on Tuesday near Rennes in northern France when she was struck from behind by a motorist. Since the accident, she has only been on the home trainer, concerned that she may be hit again. At first I did not want to talk too much about it, I thought it would not change anything, she told French newspaper Le Telegramme. But yes, I, too, got hit by a car on Tuesday in training. And I too am doing well ... I only have big aches, but it could have been more dramatic. I am still traumatised: since the accident, I have not been back out. I do not want to go on the road. I am scared. The first time I go out to train, I certainly will not go alone. Looking back, I think I was lucky. A few centimetres ... If the person had not braked at all, she would have crushed me. In my misfortune, yes, I had a little luck.ADVERTISEMENT Biannic explained to Le Telegramme that she had only just started her training ride when the car appeared to accelerate into the back of her. I started training on my time trial bike, and after just five minutes at an intersection, a car came at me from behind, she said. I turned to the left, the car that was following me took the same direction. At the end of the intersection, as the light was red, I slowed down while the car accelerated. I still wonder why. She hit me from behind and I fell back. My head hit the ground first. Fortunately, I had my helmet. It had to be going at 30-40 kph. The shock was violent. I have to wear a neck brace for seven days but as the [injured] muscles are more located in the front of the neck and the abdomen, this neck brace doesn't do much for me. I still do not understand why she did not see me; I was right in front of her. I did not slalom between the cars. When will it stop? You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Will Team Sky wear new white kit at Tour de France?
May 20, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Cyclingnews has learned that Team Sky is set to wear a special edition white jersey for the 2017 edition of the Tour de France. An official announcement from the team is expected on 31st May, a few days after the Giro d'Italia comes to an end. Castelli would not confirm the exact design of the jersey to Cyclingnews, but they did confirm that it will feature a 'small detail change'. It is expected that the line and dot design of the standard issue black and blue jersey for the season will remain, with a simple reversal of the black and white colour ways. Team Sky would not comment when contacted by Cyclingnews. There is a possibility that the minimalist design of the jersey will clash with the Maillot Blanc, which is worn by the best young rider on the general classification. Historically, teams have altered their regular jersey so as not to clash with the leader's jersey at the Tour de France, whilst it seems that this will not deter the British super team. In 2011, the team wore a custom green 'Rainforest Rescue kit' at the Tour de France when Adidas provided apparel.ADVERTISEMENT ONCE, Mercatone Uno and KAS were all known to alter their kits for the Grand Tour so as not to clash with the yellow overall leader's jersey. More recently, Tinkoff-Saxo swapped out their yellow and blue kit for a grey and fluo camouflage kit in 2015. Special edition jerseys at the Tour de France have also become precursors for new sponsorship announcements for the following season. The blurred lines of transfer windows, contract negotiations and sponsorships deals begin in earnest during the biggest race on the calendar. Orica-GreenEdge, Giant-Alpecin and Cannondale-Drapac all released new jerseys for the Tour de France last year. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
