Viviani: Becoming European Road Race Champion Gives Me Immense Joy
Elia Viviani was thrilled to take the European road race champion's title at the UEC Road European Championships on Sunday, winning from a three-man breakaway as opposed to the bunch sprints the Italian's used to winning from.

"I can't find the words to tell you what this means to me. I came out of the Tour de France with good condition, and was hoping to be in contention for the gold medal. To finally get it, two years after I finished runner-up, gives me immense joy." In 2017, when the championships were held in Herning, Denmark, Viviani finished second to Norway's Alexander Kristoff in a bunch sprint.

Change In Sports Drink Blamed For Uae's Poor Tour De France Performance
A change in sports drinks before the Tour de France is being blamed for UAE Team Emirate 's lacklustre performance in the French Grand Tour , where general classification rider Fabio Aru finished nearly half an hour down, sprinter Alexander Kristoff failed to win a stage and Irishman Dan Martin never cracked the top 10.

He opted to start his sprint early, anticipating Groenewegen and Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) to come up alongside Viviani. The Italian had the best line along the barriers, but Ewan had more speed in his aero tuck and came down the middle of the road to win by half a bike length. Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep) enjoyed a relatively quiet but hot day in the French canicule, where temperatures went up to 38°C. He finished safely ...
