Gallery: The Sagan Show On Stage 10 Of The Giro D'Italia

Joe Robinson 18 May 2021 Bora-Hansgrohe and Peter Sagan execute a masterplan for victory as the Giro reaches the first rest day Bora-Hansgrohe played a master stroke on Stage 10 of the Giro d'Italia . Or shall we call them the A-Team because they absolutely love it when a plan comes together. The day before the first rest day, Stage 10 from L'Aquila to Foligno was only 139km long and had a flat final 30km which suggested it could be a day for the peloton's fastest men. However, Peter Sagan and Co had other ideas. Hitting the Valico della Somma, a 6.8km climb at 5% with 45km left to race, Sagan demanded an infernal pace from his Bora-Hansgrohe teammates with the sole purpose of shelling his sprinting rivals. Among the victims were Giamcomo Nizzolo ( Qhubeka-Assos ), Tim Merlier (Alpecin-Fenix) and Dylan Groenewegen ( Jumbo-Visma ). See related Giro d'Italia ...

Gallery: Nizzolo Misses Out Again As Ewan Takes Stage 5 At The Giro D'Italia

Will Strickson 12 May 2021 A crash-filled finale saw Mikel Landa sadly forced to withdraw as Caleb Ewan pips Giacomo Nizzolo to take Stage 5 of the Giro d'Italia It was a day to forget for two of cycling's best nearly men as Mikel Landa crashed out of the race and Giacomo Nizzolo was cruelly denied his first ever Giro d'Italia stage win on the line in Stage 5 . Landa, who looked to be in great form attacking the other favourites on the final climb of Stage 4, came down in a collision with a signalling race marshal and had to be taken to hospital. Let's hope it's not too serious.

Gallery: Merlier Magic On Stage 2 Of The Giro D'Italia

Joe Robinson 10 May 2021 Belgian sprinter Tim Merlier takes victory from a bunch sprint on Stage 2 into Novara Stage 2 of this year's Giro d'Italia was best described as a slow burner. A 179km pan flat course from Stupinigi to Novara, a three-man breakaway with no threat to the Maglia Rosa, a lack of technical roads, a gauranteed sprint finish. To be honest, it was the commentary teams providing extensive coverage of the entire stage I felt sorry for. It was almost as if Patrick Lefevere gifted them the news Sam Bennett was leaving Deceuninck-QuickStep at the end of the season earlier that day so they had something actually interesting to talk about. Not until the final 10km did the race show any sign of pulse and even then, the most exciting moment was when a rider from the peloton chucked his bottle in a designated litter zone, ...

Will Strickson 19 Mar 2021 L'Équipe has published a list of the top 20 earners in the peloton Chis Froome 's new contract with Israel Start-Up Nation has made him cycling's highest earner, bringing in a cool €5.5 million salary.

Men's Worldtour Team Bikes 2021: A Breakdown

Joe Robinson 27 Jan 2021 A breakdown of the bikes being used in the men's WorldTour for the 2021 season With less than one month until Omloop Het Nieuwsblad – fingers crossed – and professional bike racing just days away from resuming, it is about time we reminded ourselves of the bikes set to be used during the 2021 season. The annual merry-go-round of bike sponsorship was in full swing over the winter months. Jumbo-Visma swapped Bianchi bikes for Cervelo with Team BikeExchange (formerly Mitchelton-Scott) exchanging bikes with a swap to Bianchi from Scott. Then to complete the perfect circle, Scott bikes were picked up by Team DSM (formerly Team Sunweb) after parting ways with Cervelo. One word: synergy. For the first time since the mid-1990s, Giant will be absent from cycling's highest echelons while BMC joins Specialized as the only manufacturer with two teams in the men's WorldTour. Below ...
