  • Plaza rues missed opportunity at Prato Nevoso
    Posted on 24th May 2018 at 11:00 pm

    Ruben Plaza (Israel Cycling Academy) threw everything he had at the Giro d'Italia's 18th stage on Thursday, infiltrating the day's main breakaway and then surviving to be among the final three fighting for victory on the summit finish at the Prato Nevoso ski resort. The 38-year-old Spaniard came up just short of adding a Giro d'Italia stage to his collection of Grand Tour stage wins, however, […]

  • Giro d'Italia stage 19: The hardest part is still to come
    Posted on 24th May 2018 at 8:35 pm

    As the Giro d'Italia gruppo pedalled towards Prato Nevoso on Thursday afternoon, the eye will have been drawn by the snow-capped peaks that loomed imposingly on the horizon beyond the day's finishing climb. They seemed to serve as a tacit reminder: no matter what happens here, the hardest part is still to come. In the end, the ascent of Prato Nevoso on stage 18 tightened the margins of this Giro […]

  • Pozzovivo's confidence grows as Giro d'Italia's big mountain stages loom large
    Posted on 24th May 2018 at 8:09 pm

    Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida) coughed hard and deep as he tried to recover from his huge effort to finish with Chris Froome (Team Sky) and Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) on the Prato Nevoso finish at the end of the Giro d'Italia's stage 18, but he was happy to have gained a few seconds on Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) and show that he can more than hold his own in the fight for the final […]

  • Tom Dumoulin: I thought, 'That's nice, finally a moment of weakness'
    Posted on 24th May 2018 at 7:50 pm

    For two weeks, Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) and the Giro d'Italia gruppo had laboured under the growing impression that Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) simply could not be defeated when the road climbed. For two weeks, on every manner of mountain and hill that Italy has to offer, the maglia rosa was impassive of face and light of foot, his lead seemingly impregnable. In the space of two kilometres […]

  • Chris Froome: The race is still on
    Posted on 24th May 2018 at 7:46 pm

    Chris Froome was forced to ride on the defensive for much of the Giro d'Italia after his crash before the opening time trial in Jerusalem, but the Team Sky leader appeared to be back to his Grand Tour best on the fast climb to Prato Nevoso at the end of stage 18, gaining 28 seconds on race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott). Froome is targeting Domenico Pozzovivo's podium place as his first […]

    Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) showed a first sign of weakness at the 2018 Giro d'Italia on Thursday, losing time to Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb), Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida) and Chris Froome (Team Sky) on the fast finish to Prato Nevoso. He tried hard to paper over cracks in his defence of the maglia rosa, insisting it was just a bad day and that the multiple mountain stages to […]

    Maximilian Schachmann (Quick-Step Floors) - stage winner "I feel amazing. It's great to win a stage on my first Grand Tour. I think everyone here agrees it's a really hard Giro, which makes it even nicer to be on top here. Of course, I am going to help Viviani as much as possible. It doesn't matter who wins in our team.

    Posted on 24th May 2018 at 9:55 am

    This article first appeared on BikeRadar. Italian brand Nevi is known for producing exquisite titanium frames, but its new Titanio Legno adds another exotic material into the mix.

  • Tom Dumoulin looks for solution to Simon Yates conundrum at Giro d'Italia
    Posted on 23rd May 2018 at 8:10 pm

    Fifty-six seconds, three mountain stages and more than 11,000 metres of climbing, but no matter how Tom Dumoulin and Sunweb crunch the numbers, the path to victory on this Giro d'Italia is beginning to have the feel of an unsolvable equation. Maglia rosa Simon Yates has not shown the merest sign of weakness to this point, and the terrain in the final days is decidedly in his favour. Tuesday's […]

    Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) survived another day as race leader at the Giro d'Italia and knows he can now ride defensively in the final three mountain stages that begin with Thursday's stage 18 to Prato Nevoso, putting the onus on his rivals to attack him and perhaps then reveal their weaknesses. The triumvirate of mountain stages will see the final moves of a three-week chess match and such […]

  • Viviani wins battleground stage in points classification race at Giro d'Italia
    Posted on 23rd May 2018 at 7:00 pm

    From the outset, Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) knew that this was going to be a bellwether day in the race for the maglia ciclamino on the Giro d'Italia. Sam Bennett's brace of stage victories and superior climbing ability had moved him a little too close for comfort in the points classification during the Giro's second week. Viviani was all too aware that the early climb out of Riva del Garda […]
