BMC Unrestricted URS 2020 first-ride review: Gravel bike or MTB?

BMC URS TWO Unrestricted 2020 gravel bike

It wasn’t long ago that we thought of gravel as a fringe discipline of road cycling, a discipline where niche brands like Salsa Cycles had a near monopoly. Now you’ll be hard pressed to find a single global bike brand that doesn’t have a bike dedicated to gravel. BMC only recently dipped its toes into … The post BMC Unrestricted URS 2020 first-ride review: Gravel bike or MTB? appeared first on CyclingTips .

Gallery: Elia Viviani's Tour de France stage winning Specialized S-Works Venge

Joe Robinson 10 Jul 2019 An in-depth look at the fastest bike in the Tour de France peloton* Deceuninck-Quickstep's Elia Viviani proved a class above the rest as he sprinted to Stage 4 victory in Nancy after a perfectly executed lead out by teammates Michael Morkov and Max Richeze. The combination of expert teamwork and explosive sprint propelled Viviani ahead of the likes of Alexander Kristoff and Caleb Ewan to a win that he ultimately took quite comfortably. The bike he rode to victory also played its part in the Belgian team's second win in as many days and Cyclist got to have a little look at this weapon of choice before the race began. Being an out-and-out fastman, it is of no surprise that Viviani opts for the Specialized S-Works Venge disc as his go-to bike considering it is the aerodynamic option in the American brand's range.

Long-term review: FSA Powerbox Carbon power cranks

Stu Bowers Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 10:23 A lightweight and attractive power meter fit to adorn any high-end road bike 4.5 / 5 £1099.95 FSA has worked with German manufacturer, Power2Max, for this spider based system, the FSA Powerbox Carbon power cranks. That’s no bad thing at all. Power2Max has an excellent reputation for high quality products, so much so Cannondale has recently selected P2M power meters for OE spec on many of its top end bikes. To avoid confusion here this is a single sided power meter, as there are only strain gauges in the right hand spider, but it can still effectively provide many of the same metrics as a 'true' dual-sided system, just arguably ever-so slightly less accurate as it’s algorithm is not true-data based. FSA Powerbox is capable of providing left and right leg balance data as well as more sophisticated pedalling efficiency analysis (requires ...

Tour de France: Momentum still with Bernal as Thomas loses five seconds in fraught finale

Egan Bernal finishes stage 3 at the Tour de France ahead of teammate Geraint Thomas

Who's the boss? The five seconds Egan Bernal gained on Geraint Thomas when the peloton split on the drag to the line at Épernay on stage 3 won't decide the hierarchy at Team Ineos, far less the outcome of the Tour de France itself, but it felt like a microcosm of their contrasting approaches to this race all the same. The short, sharp haul up the Rue de Coteaux was all about momentum. Bernal, fresh from Tour de Suisse victory last month, has it in spades. Thomas, who endured a truncated build-up, is a man still in search of it. After a rugged finale that fizzed through champagne country, lone escapee Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep) was already celebrating stage victory and a stint in the maillot jaune by the time the reduced chasing peloton hit the 350m kick towards the line. Thomas was well positioned towards the front of that elite ...

Check out the S-Works Tarmac Disc Julian Alaphillipe rode to win Stage 3 of the Tour

Peter Stuart 8 Jul 2019 Julian Alaphillipe S-Works Tarmac Disc looks every bit the all-round breakaway speed machine of the French rider himself Julian Alaphillipe took an incredible solo win today on Stage 3 of the Tour de France, showcasing the rider's increasingly impressive all-round form. The S-Works Tarmac he rode may have played a smaller part than the Frenchman himself, but is well worth some admiration. Alaphillipe's S-Works Tarmac is arguably the perfect breakaway weapon of choice, with a mix of aerodynamics, stiffness and light weight.

The Cannibal and the thief: Merckx’s legendary 1969 Tour de France, 50 years on

Cycling, famously, is a sport of stars and water-carriers. The stars win; the water-carriers never do. But the history of cycling is written in those rare, fleeting moments when an unknown name attempts to steal victory from an established hero. Those moments are unlikely and rarely fruitful, but they define the sport just as much … The post The Cannibal and the thief: Merckx’s legendary 1969 Tour de France, 50 years on appeared first on CyclingTips .
