  • Simon Yates: It's not enough for me to win the Giro d'Italia
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 8:14 pm

    Simon Yates finished the stage to Zoncolan "completely empty", disappointed not to have caught Chris Froome to win the stage, but satisfied to have gained another 31 precious seconds on Tom Dumoulin, now his closest rival for the overall victory at the Giro d'Italia. Yates looked in control for most of the Monte Zoncolan despite the twisting double-digit gradient. While Fabio Aru, Miguel Angel […]

  • Chris Froome: I'm going to keep racing as hard all the way to Rome
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 7:57 pm

    Chris Froome dug deep, suffered perhaps like few times before in his career, and fought all the way to the finish line to conquer the Monte Zoncolan and begin a fight back after losing chunks of time in the Giro d'Italia since his crash in Jerusalem. Team Sky had given Froome the option of going home due to his injuries and pain from the subsequent muscle imbalances but he always refused to […]

  • Tom Dumoulin: It's going to be difficult to win the Giro d'Italia
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 7:16 pm

    Tom Dumoulin was in a place beyond words. Monte Zoncolan has that sort of effect. Fifty metres or so past the finish of stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia, the Dutchman was flagged down by a pair of Sunweb soigneurs, and he eased to a halt. With eyes glazed and face drawn, he leant silently against a barrier as they helped him into a long-sleeved jersey and wrapped a towel around his neck. Dumoulin […]

  • Giro d'Italia 2018: Stage 14 highlights - Video
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 6:56 pm

    The much feared Monte Zoncolan put an exclamation point at the end of stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia, with Chris Froome (Team Sky) scoring an emphatic victory after two weeks of struggles in the race. Although Froome escaped and soloed to the win, he was closely trailed by magila rosa holder Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), who had the Sky rider in sight at the line but couldn't close the gap […]

  • Giro d'Italia: Stage 14 finish line quotes
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 5:12 pm

    Chris Froome (Team Sky) - stage winner It is a really, really special feeling winning on top of this climb. Such an amazing feeling. It's such a monumental climb for the Giro d'Italia, such a monumental climb for the race in general. It's such a good feeling, especially after a hard start to the race for me and the team. The team has supported me so well in these last two weeks, so to get the […]

  • Hall not letting Amgen Women's Race come down to bonus sprints
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 3:13 pm

    With her solo stage victory on Friday, Katie Hall (UnitedHealthcare) crowned herself queen of Lake Tahoe in the Amgen Women's Race on Friday. It was her third win there in the span of four years. And unlike last year, Hall now holds a comfortable lead heading into the final stage, a 70-km sprinters' stage on a city circuit in Sacramento. Hall's preparation for the UCI Women's WorldTour race had […]

  • Van Garderen concedes that Bernal is the better rider in California
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 1:25 pm

    Tejay van Garderen (BMC) lost his overall lead on stage 6 of the Tour of California on Friday after Team Sky's Egan Bernal put the hammer down on the penultimate climb and rode away from the 29-year-old American. Quite understandably loathe to talk to reporters at the finish line in South Lake Tahoe, van Garderen later said on BMC Racing's website that he was happy that his team had done […]

  • The Zoncolan is a 'different beast' but Simon Yates is undaunted
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 1:06 pm

    Since it was introduced to the Giro d'Italia fifteen years ago, Monte Zoncolan has inspired the loftiest of nicknames. Even before a pedal had been turned in anger on its slopes, it was branded as the 'Kaiser.' Once scores of tifosi began cramming into the natural amphitheatre near the summit, it was labelled as the 'Vertical Maracana.' On the Giro's last visit in 2014, La Gazzetta dello Sport […]

  • Amgen Women's Race: Stage 2 highlights - Video
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 12:20 pm

    Katie Hall (UnitedHealthcare) dominated the queen stage 2 at the Amgen Women's Race securing a solo victory and the overall leader's jersey in South Lake Tahoe. The California native crossed the summit of the final climb with breakaway rider Tayler Wiles (Trek-Drops), but managed to distance herself on the uphill finish to Heavenly Mountain Resort. Wiles climbed to a second-place finish on the […]

    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 10:35 am

    Lotto Soudal’s Tim Wellens has left the Giro d’Italia ahead of stage 14. The Belgian, who won stage 4 of the race, has shown signs of illness and the early stages of bronchitis in the last few days. According to his team, the 27-year-old was suffering from a fever after Friday’s stage 13. Stage 14 will finish up the punishing climb of the Monte Zoncolan. “It’s never […]

  • Chris Froome: It's a brutal final up the Zoncolan
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 7:08 am

    Chris Froome (Team Sky) faces an uphill battle as steep as the slopes of the Zoncolan if he is to turn his Giro d'Italia around. As one of the toughest climbs in Europe loomed large on the horizon, Froome appeared relaxed and ready for the major showdown, perhaps knowing he has lots to gain and very little else to lose in this year's corsa rosa. If he has a bad day on Saturday and loses more […]

  • Tour of California 2018: Stage 6 highlights – Video
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 6:53 am

    It was a day for the climbers in both the Amgen Women's Race and the men's Tour of California on Friday, with Katie Hall (UnitedHealthcare) and Team Sky's Egan Bernal taking solo stage wins in their respective races, which both finished in South Lake Tahoe. While Hall relieved overnight leader Kendall Ryan (Team Tibco) of her yellow leader's jersey, Bernal attacked on the penultimate climb […]

  • Just go as hard as you can: Tom Dumoulin takes on the Zoncolan
    Posted on 19th May 2018 at 6:27 am

    The hardest climb of the Giro d'Italia is also the simplest. Monte Zoncolan has the steepest gradients of any ascent on the corsa rosa, but its severity rather reduces its complexity. For Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb), at least, the strategy for the Kaiser is a brutally simple one: just go as hard as you can. After stalking maglia rosa Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) up the final climb in Osimo on stage […]
