If Cycling Did An American-Style Draft, What Would Happen?

Will Strickson 30 Apr 2021 What would happen if the WorldTour was taken over by Americans and cycling adopted the draft system for signing young riders? Cyclist investigates what might happen if the WorldTour was taken over by Americans and cycling adopted the draft system for signing young riders Words : Will Strickson Photos : Offside and Chris Auld Picture it: teams, fans and prospects gather at the Roubaix velodrome. Topless Belgian fans cradling their beers are chanting 'Remco! Remco! Remco!' David Lappartient steps up to the podium and begins, 'With the first pick of the 2021 UCI WorldTour draft, Israel Start-Up Nation select...' It's absolutely bonkers, but that's American sports and given last night was the first round of the NFL Draft, we thought it would be fun to imagine what it might look like if men's cycling had a draft.

The Top 10 Riders From The 2021 Spring Classics

Joe Robinson 27 Apr 2021 A breakdown of the best riders this spring and the rider we ranked first among them all And just like that, the 2021 Spring Classics season is over. It only feels like yesterday that we were cracking open our first Belgian Tripels of the year, settling in on the sofa for an afternoon of enjoying back-to-back coverage of the men’s and women’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and yet, with the conclusion of Liege-Bastogne-Liege , it is all over again for another year. In a spring that missed Paris-Roubaix for a second consecutive year, no one rider really dominated throughout the period in either the men’s or women’s peloton. Instead, the very best kindly shared the spoils among one another with no rider taking home more than two one-day victories this spring. We also learned that Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert are human, the ...

How Drops-Le Col Have Prepared For Liege-Bastogne-Liege

Maria David 23 Apr 2021 After a promising start to the season, Drops-Le Col let us in on their preparations for Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Photos: Rhode Photo British Drops-Le Col s/b Tempur rider Joss Lowden is buzzing after placing fifth at Brabantse Pijl recently. With riders from all the top ranked teams being present, this was a women's WorldTour race in all but name. Lowden was in the final select break with fancied riders like Demi Vollering ( SD Worx ) and Ruth Winder ( Trek-Segafredo ), but just missed out in the dash for the finish line. As a relative newcomer to WorldTour racing, Lowden’s strong showing at Brabantse Pijl, along with a top 10 finish at the Healthy Ageing Tour, has been confidence-building for the team’s 2021 campaign.
