Froome hit by car on training ride
May 09, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froome was knocked off his bike by a motorist today, posting a photo of his mangled Team Sky Pinarello bike on his social media accounts. The Tour de France champion was continuing his training back at home in the south of France after riding the Tour de Romandie, but said he was hit on purpose by a driver, who then drove off. Unlike the damage caused to his bike, Froome said he suffered no physical injury.ADVERTISEMENT "Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver who followed me onto the pavement!" Froome wrote on Twitter. "Thankfully I'm okay. Bike totaled. Driver kept going!" Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver who followed me onto the pavement! Thankfully I'm okay Bike totaled.

Giro d'Italia: Thomas sees potential for full-on GC battle on Mount Etna
May 08, 2017 (07:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Many pundits are predicting that thestage 4 summit finish on Mount Etna " the first and one of the hardest of the 2017 Giro d'Italia " comes too early in the race to culminate in an all-out GC battle. But one significant voice in the peloton, at least, believes the complete opposite could well be true. "I think once you're on it [Etna], everybody will be going full gas," Team Sky's Geraint Thomas told a small group of reporters in Tortoli before stage 3. "If somebody's good then they're going to try and take time." Although the popular view is that it would be risky to take a firm hold of the GC so early, Thomas points out that at least one top Giro d'Italia contender has operated differently in the past. "Look at when [Vincenzo] Nibali took yellow [on stage 2] in the Tour de France in 2014, the race was still in the UK," the Welshman pointed out. "I don't think Tuesday will be about people not wanting to take the Giro lead too soon."ADVERTISEMENT Thomas does not think, in any case, that the Giro d'Italia organisers have made a mistake by putting in such a key moment so soon in the game. "It's different to have a climb so early on, but it'll be good to see where I'm at, hopefully get stuck in, and have a good day." Thomas has not ridden Etna before because, as he succinctly explains, "other things [recons] fitted around races - it was just a bit more of a logistical pain in the arse." However, he says he'll spend some of the rest day watching videos of past two-wheeled assaults on the Sicilian volcano. "Apparently the wind could be important. It'll be a good test." He did not get to check out the Blockhaus, the other big early summit finish on stage 9, because it was blocked with snow when he was in the area during Tirreno-Adriatico, but, as he sees it, "as long as you've got good legs, that's the main thing."

Kwiatkowski proves he is back to his best with Strade Bianche win
March 04, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Michal Kwiatkowski punched the air several times as he arrived alone and victorious in Sienas Piazza del Campo, celebrating a well-deserved win at Strade Bianche but also enjoying his return to success after a difficult first season with Team Sky. The 26-year-old Polish rider had not won a race since last years E3 Harelbeke. He started the 2016 season very skinny, but failed to finish a long series of stage races. He seemed a shadow of the rider who soloed to victory at the 2014 World Championships and won the 2015 Amstel Gold Race. Kwiatkowski cuts a diminutive figure compared to the bulk of the Cobbled classic contenders. He is also softly spoken and clearly emotive yet was not afraid to reveal he had endured a difficult 2016.ADVERTISEMENT "Im very happy to win, but it wasnt all or nothing," Kwiatkowski said during the winners press conference with the written media at Strade Bianche. "Im very happy with how it went. I had a lot of difficulties last season, but now Im happy with the current situation. "I was maybe pushing myself to the limit too much to impress everyone last year. Im not a machine, and sooner or later you pay the bill. I wasnt happy but had great support from the team with my health problems and not finishing races, they always believed in me. I didnt lose my talent, I just had to wait and work hard to get back on the level. "Before I started training [for 2017] I tried to stay calm. My main goal was to be back at my level. Im just happy to be having fun on my bike again." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
