Comment: Tadej Pogacar Will Not Win The Tour De France

Will Strickson 25 Jun 2021 Pogacar is the undisputed favourite to defend his title, but here's why that won't happen. Photos: Offside Last year, no one expected Tadej Pogačar to win the Tour de France until the top of La Planche des Belles Filles. This year, virtually everyone – bar Carlton Kirby – has crowned the UAE Team Emirates man before a cleat has been clipped. Pogačar quietly went about his business in 2020 sitting on the back of the Jumbo-Visma train before outclimbing compatriot Primož Roglič to a couple of stage wins, keeping himself within a minute of the yellow jersey until that fateful time-trial. It was an historic performance that cemented his place as the sport's top new talent, eclipsing Ineos Grenadiers' Egan Bernal who had been given similar hype the previous year. While the Slovenian is rightly tipped to take the win having looked pretty much unbeatable ...

Comment: The Priority Vaccination Of Uae Team Emirates Riders Has Left Me Feeling Uneasy

Joe Robinson 8 Jan 2021 Should elite athletes be prioritised in the coronavirus vaccination process? Words : Joe Robinson Current Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar looks down the lens of the camera. His eyes suggest a smile but the mask covering his mouth hides his expression. His left sleeve rolled up, a health care practitioner sticks a needle into his upper left arm. It's a rare moment in which a needle represents good in our world of cycling. The current Tour champion is receiving his vaccination against Covid-19 . In potentially as little as a few weeks, the invisible killer that has brought the world to a standstill and killed millions over the last 12 months will be no match for Pogacar, 26 of his UAE Team Emirates teammates and 32 of the team’s staff members thanks to the Sinopharm CNBG vaccine, developed in China. ‘As a UAE team ...

Davide Formolo and his Bora-Hansgrohe teammates in San Sebastian

Davide Formolo will ride for UAE Team Emirates in 2020 after signing a two-year contract with the team. The Italian champion arrives at UAE Team Emirates after two seasons with Bora-Hansgrohe . Formolo placed 10th and 14th overall in the past two editions of the Giro d'Italia but said that he will emphasis one-day racing at UAE Team Emirates. He placed second at this year's Liège-Bastogne-Liège behind Jakob Fuglsang and also took second at the recent test event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Tour De Pologne: Ackermann Struggles In Uphill Sprint But Keeps Yellow

Pascal Ackermann gets another day in yellow at Tour de Pologne

Pascal Ackermann didn't find the uphill sprint at the end of stage 5 at the Tour de Pologne to his liking, but the double-stage winner was able to finish in the main bunch and keep his race lead. Racing resumed on Wednesday after the neutralisation of the race on stage 4 as the race honoured Bjorg Lambrecht. Ackermann's Bora-Hansgrohe teammate Rafal Majka , meanwhile, picked up the team flag and placed sixth in the stage finale, moving up to 15th overall in a large group that sits 24 seconds behind the leader and positioning himself well for the general classification battle in the upcoming mountains.

Formolo Predicts Relentlessly Tough Olympic Road Race In Tokyo

Davide Formolo and his Bora-Hansgrohe teammates in San Sebastian

Italian road champion Davide Formolo ( Bora-Hansgrohe ) is not one to be easily daunted by a tough climbing circuit, but after clinching second in July at the Olympic road-race test event for Tokyo's Olympic Games, Formolo has one very straightforward prediction about next summer in Japan: "It's going to be a very hard race indeed." Second at Liège-Bastogne-Liège in April, and the winner of the difficult Montjuic circuit at the Volta a Catalunya in March, Formolo has succeeded more often than not in hilly climbing races, and is therefore in a good position to compare the tough Tokyo event with similar professional events. And when asked by Cyclingnews this weekend if the Tokyo course was as hard as the notoriously tough 2016 Olympic road race circuit in Brazil, Formolo answered simply: 'Yes.' Brazil featured 40 kilometres of climbing, and was won by Greg Van Avermaet for Belgium. Four years ...
