Van der Breggen: I hoped that the break would stick at Fleche Wallonne

Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans)

Anna van der Breggen ( Boels Dolmans ) claimed her fourth straight Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday, but says she found this year's race harder than the previous editions. And ever the team player, the Dutchwoman was rooting for the four-woman breakaway with her teammate Megan Guarnier to go all the way. "The final was harder this year because we had to do the second-last climb twice. And that one is just as tough as the Mur, I think. The tactics started earlier this year. I tried the first attack, and it didn't stick, and then the second one with Megan did. That was a good situation for us, we didn't have to do anything in the back, and Megan tried to save energy in the front. I hoped that the break would stick." But the teams that had missed the break took to the front of the peloton to chase ...

Haller struck by car while training

Marco Haller making his way back onto the road after a crash sent him far afield at Gent-Wevelgem

Katusha-Alpecin 's Marco Haller was struck by a motorist who ran a stop sign while training in Austria on Thursday, suffering multiple fractures to his left knee. The team estimate he will be out for several months and will miss the Tour de France , where he was due to be one of Marcel Kittel's main lead-out men. "It was my second day back on the bike, after I had to recover from a second viral infection in the 2018 season," Haller said from the Landeskrankenhaus hospital in Villach. "I was riding with Bernie Eisel and was sitting in his wheel in a slight downhill, when suddenly a car, ignoring the stop sign, came at us from the right. Bernie just managed to escape him, but I could not do that and hit the driver's door at full speed. My bike was completely destroyed and my knee as well." Haller ...

Aru: I'm not at the Tour of the Alps to be a bit-part player

Fabio Aru at stage 3 of  Tour of the Alps

Fabio Aru ( UAE Team Emirates ) admitted that he was not at the same level as his potential Giro d'Italia rivals when the Tour of the Alps began on Monday but day after day, attack after attack, he has been able to close the gap, indicating he will be a real contender at the Corsa Rosa in May. Aru often races with his heart, ignoring his legs, as he searches for success. He appeared to use both during stage 4 to Lienz, perhaps first informing Chris Froome of his intentions to attack on the late Bannberg and then going deep on the six-kilometre climb and opening a gap on the overall contenders and his future Giro d'Italia rivals. Aru danced on the pedals with his trademark leg swinging style, suffering on the steepest gradients, but his pace was constant as he cut his way through an earlier move and ...

Sanchez maintains Astana's stronghold on Tour of the Alps

Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana) wins stage 4 at Tour of the Alps

Luis Leon Sanchez continues Astana 's romp through the Tour of the Alps as he claimed victory on stage 4. It is the third win for the Kazakh team this week after Pello Bilbao and Miguel Angel Lopez won the opening two stages. Ben O'Connor (Dimension Data) is the only rider so far to break the stronghold that Astana has on this year's race after he launched a move similar to Sanchez's on stage 3. The Spaniard had been there but says he waited too long when the Australian attacked and was determined to make up for it on the hugely aggressive stage. "It was a really short stage and really nervous. It started really quickly and it was difficult to control. There are lots of strong teams like FDJ and Team Sky, who are also preparing for the Giro d'Italia," said Sanchez. "Yesterday, things didn't go that well for ...

Check out the Maxxis tire made by Greg Minnaar

Check out the Maxxis tire made by Greg Minnaar

Maxxis is rolling out a new tire designed in conjunction with legendary downhill world cup racer Greg Minnaar. The Assegai takes its name from a spear used by the Zulu people of South Africa, Minnaar’s home country. Goodyear launches bicycle tires Maxxis Minion DHF Wide Trail 3C TR EXO 2.5in tyre review The South African racer developed this new tire by taking elements from many of his favorite Maxxis tires and blending them into a new tread pattern. “My idea was to design a tire around some of Maxxis’ iconic tread patterns. I started in the center by combining the Minion DHF and the Minion DHR II. The reasoning behind this was I felt the surface area of the DHF rolls well and gives you a good footprint on hardpack, greasy turns, as well as confidence on wet roots and rocks. “The DHR II added faster rolling speed and more ...

Chris Froome enjoying being aggressive at the Tour of the Alps

Chris Froome (Team Sky) stage 4 Tour of the Alps

Chris Froome ( Team Sky ) again went on the offensive at the Tour of the Alps , testing his rivals with different attacks as he looks for a stage victory, fights for the overall classification and polishes his form for the rapidly approaching Giro d'Italia. Froome missed Fabio Aru's attack on the Banneberg climb 15km from the finish in Lienz but Team Sky domestique Kenny Elissonde again stepped up to help to close down the move. Froome then made two attacks that split the front group of overall contenders and went again on the valley road towards the finish. Froome used his aggression on the descent to line-up a slingshot move and tried to time trial away from his rivals. The elastic almost snapped as he opened a gap but eventual stage winner Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana) and Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida) manage to pull him back, with Aru forced ...
