Forget The Vuelta A Espana Three Peat, Primoz Roglic Needs A Tour De France For True Greatness

Joe Robinson 6 Sep 2021 That illusive Tour de France title is needed if Roglic plans to be remembered as one of the greats That illusive Tour de France title is needed if Primož Roglič plans to be remembered as one of the greats Words: Joe Robinson Photography: Chris Auld ‘Did you know Primož Roglič used to be a ski jumper?’ Comfortably the most tired cliché in professional cycling over the past few years. Easily eclipsing fellow favourites such as ‘Andre Greipel climbs well for a big man’ and ‘Geraint Thomas has crashed’. Such is the constant reminder of the Jumbo-Visma man’s winter sports past, he has even got in on the joke, incorporating a ski jump landing into his victory celebration. Not quite Alberto Contador’s smoking pistols but we sure have seen it an awful lot over the past few years, haven’t we? But, honestly, did you know that ...

Mark Cavendish Is Favourite For Sports Personality Of The Year

Mark Cavendish is favourite for Sports Personality of the Year

Joe Robinson 22 Jul 2021 His incredible comeback story at the Tour de France is earning him deserved attention from beyond cycling Fresh off the back of his incredible Tour de France comeback, Mark Cavendish is now the bookies' favourite to win Sports Personality of the Year. The 36-year-old exprienced a memorable career renaissance taking four stage wins and the green points jersey at his first Tour since 2017. In the process, Cavendish managed to equal the great Eddy Merckx for the most stage victories in Tour history with 34 wins. This remarkable Tour performance also came within the wider context of Cavendish's return to the top of the sprinting game. Nine months prior, the Manxman was out of contract at Bahrain-McLaren and considering bringing his career to an end due to the lack of contract opportunities.

Gallery: Wout Van Aert King Of The Road After Stage 20 Tt Win

Martin James 18 Jul 2021 Pogacar looks human for once as Van Aert edges out Asgreen in final Tour time-trial The individual time-trial may be known as the race of truth, but in truth there was little of consequence to be decided on Stage 20 of the 2021 Tour de France . The stage win itself was up for grabs of course, but aside for some squabbling over minor GC places, this was more a case for admiring the form and fitness of these two-wheeled gladiators and marvelling at the journey this remarkable race has taken over the past three weeks. Mark Cavendish was an early starter, and largely just going through the motions ahead of his date with destiny on the Champs-Élysées today as he targets Eddy Merckx’s stage win record. Chris Froome was on the road not long after, not a contender for victory these days but a ...

Gallery: Nobody Was Beating Tadej Pogacar On Stage 17

Will Strickson 15 Jul 2021 The maillot jaune reigned supreme as Carapaz played games and Vingegaard rode for second on top of the Col du Portet Everyone loves an underdog. After cheering him up La Planche des Belles Filles last year it's been tough to support Tadej Pogačar at this year's Tour de France as he's dominated the competition and only showed apparent weakness for 30 seconds on Mont Ventoux. But Stage 17 of the Tour de France saw an impassioned champion reign supreme and it was incredible to watch. With his UAE Team Emirates domestiques putting up their best display of the Tour by a long chalk – energy levels probably helped by not controlling the peloton for two weeks – most of the bunch were dropped and the breakaway caught by the time Rafał Majka peeled off. Pogačar then upped the pace and saw off most of the ...
