Sergio Henao's independent blood profile review remains unpublished
April 27, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Details relating to the possible publication of the independent review into Sergio Henaos (Team Sky) controversial blood profile are still unclear, with the leading doctor who carried out the tests unwilling to disclose details to how or when the resulting data may be published. Team Sky requested that an independent review be set up in relation to Henaos passport data in 2014 after the team internally raised concerns over readings taken from out-of-competition tests. Henao was pulled from racing as a result but was reinstated in May of that year after the independent review committee had given the rider the all-clear to race. At the time of Henaos return, Team Sky and the medical team at Sheffield University, who carried out the tests, indicated that the results from their review would be published.ADVERTISEMENT However Henaos passport data once again made the headlines last week after the UCI and their anti-doping arm, the CADF, sent the Colombian a letter relating to what Team Sky called a "potential anti-doping rule violation". Henao has less than two weeks to respond to the CADFs request for more information, and Team Sky have once more pulled the rider from racing until further notice. Two years have passed since Henaos blood data first prompted action from his own team and the results and findings from the initial report appear no closer to being made public. Its understood that they could be used in a possible defence should the situation result in a passport violation. Last week Cyclingnews contacted Team Sky in order to seek clarity over the situation. The team have stated since 2014 that the responsibility to publish the report on Henao always lay with the medical team involved in conducting the tests, and not the team. They repeated that stance, telling Cyclingnews, It is they who will be responsible for the timelines of publication. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Froome to support Kwiatkowski at Liege-Bastogne-Liege
April 24, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After his below-expectations performance in the Amstel Gold Race where he abandoned close to the finish, Michal Kwiatkowski will start Lige-Bastogne-Lige as Team Skys leader once again, but this time with the backing of multiple Tour de France winner and teammate Chris Froome. The defending champion in Amstel Gold last Sunday, Kwiatkowski blamed his abandon on the difficult weather conditions, and expressed deep concern about the cold and possible snow forecast for Sunday in Liege. He was not so worried, he said, about the additional climb, the Cote de Rue de Naniot, in the closing kilometres. If my condition is there, then I will like it more, he told a small group of reporters. Its definitely harder as a finale than in previous years so thats going to suit the riders with the strongest legs. And without the Cote de Stockeu - a tough mid-race climb with a very difficult, dangerous descent - itll be a less nervous race, for sure.ADVERTISEMENT Having spent the week training in Valencia, Kwiatkowski said that his form was good but felt that how his body responded in poor weather would be key to his performance in Liege. That was, he said, the reason why he had to quit Amstel the previous week. I felt good before Amstel Gold, too, but when that freezing rain started during the race there was nothing I could do, Kwiatkowski pointed out. The one big plus about having the forecast for snow in Liege-Bastogne-Liege, he said, was that unlike in Amstel, they had no idea such rough weather was about to begin. We thought it was going to rain after the finish so we got caught out. In Liege, everybody, including me, will be mentally and physically ready for such conditions. I dont feel great in such weather but I will start out looking forward to the race, even with the possibility of such bad conditions. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Swift looking to lose weight in search of victories
April 23, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Ben Swift is hoping that losing weight and becoming a more efficient climber will help him turn a string of near misses into a more impressive victory haul. I've had five second places this year, all from reduced groups, and that's quite frustrating, said the British rider, telling the Team Sky website about his desire to be fresher for the more selective finales. Swift might not be on a par with the fastest sprinters in the world, but he has demonstrated with two podiums at Milan-San Remo that he can be up there at the end of an exacting days racing.ADVERTISEMENT After San Remo, Swift rode the hilly Volta a Catalunya, where his climbing caught the eye of teammate Ian Boswell, who tweeted: How about that @swiftybswift kid? 2nd in San Remo, and now climbing like a goat! I've always been able to climb fairly well, and I've had flashes of good results in the mountains, but at Paris-Nice and Catalunya I was climbing consistently well, which is something I've worked on, said Swift. I've lost some weight and tried to fit into that role with an eye on races later in the season. I've got targets coming up where I need to improve and be better in the mountains."

Poels makes his case for Olympic selection with fourth place at Flche Wallonne
April 20, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
With Sergio Henao withdrawn from racing by Team Sky after the UCIs Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation sought further information about his biological passport blood profile, Wout Poels found himself elevated to the role of leader at La Flche Wallonne. Poels would eventually place fourth on the Mur de Huy behind winner Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and the Etixx-QuickStep duo of Julian Alaphilippe and Dan Martin to score his best-ever result in a one-day Classic. Making the Netherlands selection for the road race at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is one of Poels primary ambitions for the season, and on the start line in Marche-en-Famenne on Wednesday, he told Dutch television that he was targeting a place in the top five in a bid to make his case for a seat on the flight to Brazil.ADVERTISEMENT Im really happy with it. I wanted to focus on the Classics a bit this year because Im trying to get in the selection for the Olympics for the Netherlands and I think I did pretty well, Poels told Cyclingnews after accepting the compliments of a group of Dutch fans at the roadside past the finish line on the Mur de Huy. At the bottom I was on Valverdes wheel. Hes won already a few times so I knew he was going to be really, really strong here. I think I was in a perfect position. I did everything I could. In the end I came fourth " not too bad. Poels was well-positioned in the final 300 metres of the climb, but he was unable to hold the wheels when first Martin, and then Valverde and Alaphilippe pulled away in the finale. He came home in fourth place, four seconds down on Valverde, but ahead of Amstel Gold Race winner Enrico Gasparotto (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) and former Olympic champion Samuel Sanchez (BMC).

Landa with modest expectations for Giro del Trentino
April 19, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mikel Landa got his first stage win with Team Sky out of the way at the Vuelta a Pais Vasco and the Spaniard now lines up at the Giro del Trentino capable of winning his first stage race with the British WorldTour squad but is downplaying his chances ahead of the 2.HC Race. Landa was twice second on stages at last year's race, eventually finishing second overall behind Richie Porte, 12-months on from winning a stage at the Northern Italian race. Landa winning his home stage at Pais Vasco and wearing the leader's jersey is enough for former teammate Vincenzo Nibali to label the 26-year-old as the favourite for Trentino victory but the Sky rider suggested otherwise in his pre-race comments. "Trentino has been a special race for me over the last few years. I'm still not in my very peak condition, but I'm close to that, so I'll try and finish as high on the standings as I can and keep building my relations with my team-mates," Landa said of his ambitions for the race on the Team Sky website.ADVERTISEMENT Following an interrupted start to the season that saw Landa skip Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana to work on his time trialling skills, he then fell ill and missed Ruta del Sol and Tirreno-Adriatico as a result. Landa made his long awaited debut in Sky colours at the Coppi e Bartalistage race, finishing 11th before heading to the Basque Country. "Doing so in a place I know so well was extra special," Landa said of his win. "I'd prepared for that stage a lot in the weeks leading up to it and it was a big goal of mine. I was happy with the way I rode that day and am pleased to have achieved one of my early-season goals.Getting into the leader's jersey was a nice bonus as well. I always knew it was going to be difficult to hold onto it until the end of the race, so I savoured the time I had in it. "I finished with a lot of confidence, not just because of my own performance, but because of the whole team's." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Nibali: Landa will win Giro del Trentino
April 18, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Mikel Landa (Team Sky) assembled for the Giro del Trentinos pre-race press conference at Arcos Casino to speak about their prospects for the four-day race held from April 19-22. Nibali denied that he was the race favourite and instead pointed to Landa as the man to beat saying, Landa will win, here in Trentino. NIbali had a strong start to his season, winning the Tour of Oman in February, but his last stage race was Tirreno-Adriatico in March followed by the one-day classic Milan-San Remo. He said that in light of his thin race schedule, he will be looking to build form at Trentino. For me, it will be the first race after Tirreno-Adriatico and the training camp in Spain, so we will be looking to tune up the condition and the race rhythm, Nibali said.ADVERTISEMENT As we know we have spent several weeks without racing, and we will see how we fare against our main opponents. Nibli has made the Giro dItalia one of his season goals and so Trentino this will be a proper test against his rivals for the Italian Grand Tour that starts on May 6. It will be a key test for the Giro dItalia, the goal we are working with along with Lige-Bastogne-Lige, but Trentino has always been a lucky place for me, and I am not looking to back down.

Amstel Gold Race organizers consider hosting women's race
April 15, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Amstel Gold Race organiser Leo van Vliet has said that he has discussed the prospect of holding a womens event in the near future. Speaking to Limburg television channel L1, van Vliet said that there was a 50-50 chance a race would go ahead. "I personally am certainly no opponent and we are one of the few races that have not yet," van Vliet said. "We must also be ready, it's quite a burden for an organization. We think about it and have been there several people talked about, such as [Limburg Provincial Executive of Finance, Sports and Culture " Ger] Koopmans. Van Vliet added that the one sticking point could be the manpower required to put on an event of such size.ADVERTISEMENT The aging of the traffic controllers is a problem, he said. If we do it, we want to do well, but it is certainly not impossible." It has become common for races to add a womens event to their programme on the day before or day of the mens race. Races such as the Tour of Flanders, Gent-Wevelgem, Strade Bianche and Fleche Wallonne all have womens events. This year has seen the Tour de Yorkshire and RideLondon offer record amounts of money for their womens races. The Amstel Gold Race began in 1966 and celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.

Henao parlays strong Sky tactics to Tour de Pologne victory
August 08, 2015 (03:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
It was a masterful team performance from Team Sky but Sergio Henaos victory on the 'king' stage of the Tour de Pologne on Friday held particular individual significance. It was the Colombians first win of the season and perhaps marks a significant point in his comeback from an annus horribilis in 2014. Temporarily suspended from Sky when doubts were raised over his blood values, he returned to racing at the Tour de Suisse only to be hit by another blow " a broken kneecap that would end his season and threaten his career. He returned in March this year, and though this is his first win, it has been a strong comeback season with top-three GC placings at the Vuelta al Pas Vasco and the Tour of California.ADVERTISEMENT Last year was pretty tough for me, said Henao. My injury nearly forced me to give up cycling but, my faith, my girlfriend, my team, always supported me, believed in me, waited for me, helped me. Now what Ive done this year, at Pas Vasco and California I was missing that little something to get the win, but Im really happy with this success. Justifiably or not, Team Sky are hardly noted for their tactical acumen or versatility. Metronomic drilling on climbs from a string of men in black is the familiar sight and the British squad has been accused in the past of naivety when it came to the more uncontrollable situations, such as one-day racing. Ian Stannard and Geraint Thomas helped to alter that perception over the spring, and the team at the Tour de Pologne followed in their footsteps on the queen stage on Friday, where an astute and inventive game plan was executed to perfection.

Chris Froome (Sky) has intimated that he will make a final decision on his participation in the Vuelta a Espaa in the next week. The Tour de France winner is expected to line up in the race, which gets underway in Marbella on August 22, but speaking at a criterium in Castillon-La-Bataille, near Bordeaux on Tuesday evening, Froome said that his programme was still to be confirmed. Im leaving myself another week or ten days to decide, Ill need to see with my team as well, Froome said, according to Lquipe.ADVERTISEMENT The two men who stood either side of Froome on the final Tour podium, Movistars Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde, have already confirmed that they will line up at the Vuelta, while Vincenzo Nibali " 4th at the Tour " will be part of a triumvirate of possible winners at Astana, alongside Fabio Aru and Mikel Landa.

As would be expected for any up-and-coming cyclist, Tao Geogheagn Hart is eagerly anticipating the move from his current Continental team to the Team Sky squad of Tour de France winner Chris Froome. His move will have to wait a bit, however, as he is competing this week at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah with Axel Merckxs U23 Axeon Cycling Team. Geoghegan Hart told Cyclingnews before the start of stage 2 in Tremonton that hes not sure when hell suit up in the blue and black Sky kit to race with the team.

Horner lends personal RV to team Airgas-Safeway at Tour of Utah
August 05, 2015 (17:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Although Team Sky and Chris Froome raised some hackles at the Tour de France this year when they intended to have the team leader sleep in a motorhome rather than the hotel rooms provided by the race, Airgas-Safeways Chris Horner has been driving his own RV to US races all season long. The team told Cyclingnews that Horner is not sleeping in the RV this week at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, as per the UCI rule that dictates riders stay in their assigned team lodging, so Airgas-Safeway is using Horners 40-foot fifth wheel trailer as the anchor for the teams parking lot compound. Ive had RVs of one sort or another, probably since 2000 or something like that, Horner told Cyclingnews this week at the Utah start in Logan.ADVERTISEMENT So the last 15 years I always have an RV of some kind because you can literally go wherever you want. You pitch the awning, you pull out some chairs and you can train at altitude, you can train at sea level at the beach, wherever you want to be. Horner said the portable home is especially handy for training, as he can pull up to a friends house, park in the driveway and be ready to go the next morning. Back in the day I would train with Trent Klasna, Horner said. He owned three acres in California, so I would just stay at his place. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Eisel: Linking up with Cavendish is a possibility for next year
August 04, 2015 (16:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The next two weeks are crunch time for Bernhard Eisel as he looks to secure a new contract for 2016. The Team Sky road captain is out of contract at the end of this season, having served at the British WorldTour team since 2012 but he is relaxed about his options. At the recent RideLondon Classic the 34-year-old sat Eisel down with Cyclingnews to talk about his chances of re-signing with Team Sky, returning to a French team [he rode for FDJ from 2003 to 2006 - ed.] and the possible option of linking up with a former teammate, Mark Cavendish. Im still discussing my future. The priority is to stay here [at Sky] and were getting close but of course theres talks with other teams but nothing is signed and I dont have a contract at home to sign yet. Im not actually stressed though. I know that not much happens during the Tour de France except with the riders who are there and now its crunch time in the next two weeks, Eisel told Cyclingnews.ADVERTISEMENT Eisel has carved a niche for himself at Team Sky as a rider who can captain squads at both Grand Tours and Classics. He may not quite have the sprint legs of the rider who won Gent-Wevelgem back in 2010 but he remains a thoroughbred with vast peloton experience and race know-how. My preference would normally be to stay here. I know what I have here and to go somewhere else and start new doesnt make it easier for myself. Theres interest from different teams and theres other opportunities but this is more about weighing up where I want to go and what I want to do. Part of the puzzle Eisel must solve is whether he wants to remain directly in cycling once he hangs up his wheels. A role as directeur sportif is one potential avenue the Austrian could pursue but so too is higher education, with studies in sports management another option. The long-term future cannot be ignored once a rider moves into his thirties but Eisel also believes that his legs are still strong enough to warrant a place in a WorldTour team.

Froome: All Grand Tour winners should face the same level of questioning
August 03, 2015 (15:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froome (Team Sky) believes that he has been subjected to a higher level of scrutiny than some of his rivals. Speaking at the start of a criterium race in Belgium this weekend, Froome admitted that riders do have to go the extra mile to prove their innocence but said all Grand Tour winners should have to answer the same level of questioning. Theres nothing against me, Ive done nothing wrong, he told Sporza. Of course, in this day and age, we do need to go a bit further to prove to other people, but how much further do we need to go? Is every rider releasing their data, is every rider being asked the same questions Im being asked? I dont think so. Until we get to that level playing field where every Grand Tour winner has the same level of questioning then its not correct that it should be just aimed at me. Froome endured a deluge of doping questions en route to his second Tour de France victory. The height of it came after data from Froomes stage-winning ascent of Mont Ventoux in 2013 was leaked. The Sky rider would later blame irresponsible reporting when a spectator threw urine on him during stage 14.ADVERTISEMENT In light of the heavy questioning, it was announced that Froome would undergo independent testing to prove his innocence " although the team or Froome himself have not yet indicated when or how this will take place. Any independent testing will likely have to be with the help of the World Anti-Doping Agency, leading anti-doping expert Robin Parisotto told Cyclingnews last month. Froome won the Tour de France by just over a minute to Nairo Quintana (Movistar), although he had double that going into the final mountain stage. It was the second time that Froome stood on the podium in Paris, after beating Quintana two years prior. Froome has been riding critriums in the week since the Tour de France finished and is yet to confirm his post-Tour schedule. His rivals Quintana and Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) have already put their names down for the Vuelta a Espaa later this month. Froome has indicated that he could throw his hat into the ring but is yet to make a concrete decision. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Ewan edged out by Kittel at Tour de Pologne
August 03, 2015 (02:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Caleb Ewan (Orica-GreenEdge) has already enjoyed a mightily impressive neo-pro season. The recently turned 21-year-old has 11 wins to his name so far in 2015, with three victories at the Michelton Bay Classics series, two each at the Herald Sun Tour and Tour de Langkawi, and four at the Tour de Korea. Those successes have proved that the excitement surrounding the young sprinter is well placed, but he continues to narrowly miss out on the sort of victory that would represent a defining confirmation of his much-heralded potential. While the wins, so far, have come on the smaller stages, Ewan has also started to rub shoulders with the major stars of the sprinting world, and on a few occasions he has come agonisingly close to getting the better of them. On the first stage of the Tour de Pologne on Sunday, Ewan went toe-to-toe with Marcel Kittel and only just came off second best. In his second WorldTour race " his first was the Volta a Catalunya, which he abandoned after two stages " he was side-by-side with Kittel going into the 90-degree right-hand corner just 80 metres before the line, but came through slightly worse off and was out-kicked.ADVERTISEMENT It was a bit disappointing obviously but I got beaten by a quality sprinter and there wasnt much I could do, Ewan told Cyclingnews. That corner was so close to the finish, I knew if I had any chance of winning I had to get in there first so it was a little bit risky but yeah, we both got around unscathed. I went in there really, really fast so I probably went in there too fast and had to break going through the corner, which I would have lost a bit of speed, but I think my biggest problem there was that I was way too over-geared coming out of it. If I could do it again Id be in a smaller gear but other than that there wasnt much I could do. He was too strong in the end and came round me. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
