Gallery: Teuns Wins Stage 8 In The Alps As Pogacar Lays Down The Law

Martin James 4 Jul 2021 GC rivals left floundering in the rain as defending champ takes yellow with a dominant climbing display Thanks, Tadej. No sooner do we question whether this has been the greatest Tour de France opening week ever, than the irrepressible Pogacar threatens to close out the entire race two weeks early. Such was the Slovenian’s dominance on a wet and blustery first day in the mountains. He didn’t win Stage 8 – that honour fell to Dylan Teuns in a second straight success for Bahrain Victorious – but he put so much time into his supposed GC rivals that it’s hard to see anyone else standing on the top stop of the podium in Paris, despite a full fortnight of racing still to come. The damage was done near the top of the 1 st category Col de Romme 30km from the finish, then reinforced and ...

Joe Robinson 10 Oct 2019 A complete guide to everything you need to know about Il Lombardia, taking place on Saturday 12th October Il Lombardia is the last big race of the season and one to savour. The final of the five Monuments of road cycling, 'the race of the falling leaves' takes place in early autumn across the picturesque landscape of Lombardy in northern Italy.

Giro Stage 15 Preview: Giro Di Lombardia

Stage 15: Ivrea to Como (232 kilometers) Many race organizers throw mini-versions of classic races into their stage races-- most notably recently with the ASO including mini-Roubaixs in the Tour. Earlier this race, there was even a stage that resembled a mini-Milano-Sanremo, though on the opposite coast of Italy. Well, this stage is that, but cranked up to 11-- otherwise known as going the full Vegni-- transposing the full Il Lombardia into a Giro stage-- length and climbs and all. In fact, the last 60+ kilometers of the stage follow the route of last year’s Il Lombardia almost exactly. Here’s the profile of stage 15 and the profile of last year’s Il Lombardia: Stage 15 profile 2018 Il Lombardia profile Let’s try to spot the differences.

Giro d'Italia 2019: Carapaz wins Stage 14 to take over pink jersey

Martin James 25 May 2019 Movistar make the numbers game count as key rivals trip over themselves Movistar's Richard Carapaz took his second win of the 2019 Giro d'Italia, conquering a mountainous Stage 14 to cross the line alone and take over the race leader's pink jersey for his troubles. Carapaz attacked on the penultimate climb of the day and made the most of his advantage as those behind started watching each other. Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) took second, recovering after again looking suspect in the mountains to break clear of those who had ridden away from him earlier in the day for a morale-boosting result. Italy's Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) got the consolation of third place and a time bonus, finishing with fellow favourites Primoz Roglic (Jumbo Visma) and Carapaz's Movistar teammate Mikel Landa. Roglic had looked nailed on to take over the race lead from Jan Polanc (UAE Team Emirates), ...

Zakarin proved the strongest rider from the day's breakaway dropping Mikel Nieve in the final 2km to take the first summit finish of the race on a destructive day in the Alps that saw plenty make up time and just as many lose it. For the General Classification riders, Mikel Landa made the biggest gains, attacking early on the climb to claw time back from the likes of Primoz Roglic and Vincenzo Nibali, who were content to watch each other to the finish.
