Jumbo-Visma were the WorldTour's second best team despite having the second lowest budget

Joe Robinson 15 Nov 2019 Dutch team had incredible year despite being one of the poorest in the WorldTour. Photo: Chris Auld Jumbo-Visma achieved their incredible 2019 season, which saw Primoz Roglic win the Vuelta a Espana , in spite of having the second-lowest budget in the WorldTour. In an interview with Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad , team manager Merjin Zeeman confirmed that the Dutch team operated on the second-lowest operating costs thanks to efficient management and better incentives for their riders. 'Every WorldTour team receives a document from the UCI at the start of the year, which states the budgets of all teams. We were seventeenth,' said Zeeman. 'We have a leaner organisation and therefore lower costs. Our capital is on the bike. We are not large payers, but our riders have nice contracts. Only they earn less than they can with the richer teams.' With over 50 victories, ...

Cycling stars pay tribute to the late Raymond Poulidor

Cycling stars pay tribute to the late Raymond Poulidor

Joe Robinson 13 Nov 2019 Merckx, Van der Poel and President Macron among those to pay their respects The cycling world has paid tribute to Raymond Poulidor who died in the early hours of Wednesday morning at a hospital in Saint-Leonard-de-Noblat, near Limoges in central France. Finishing second at the Tour de France on three occasions and on the podium a total of seven times, Poulidor earned himself the nickname 'the eternal second' after never managing to win the race nor wear the leader's yellow jersey. His career was defined by two great rivalries. Firstly with the late Jaques Anquetil which saw the French duo splitting the loyalty of entire households throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s. His second great rivalry came with Eddy Merckx in the mid- to late-1960s with Poulidor the older, more experienced rider. Merckx was among the first to pay tribute to his once rival-turned ...
