Richie Porte: I think the Vuelta is probably a realistic goal

Richie Porte (BMC) ahead of the 2018 Tour de France

Richie Porte ( BMC Racing ) says he'll turn his focus to the Vuelta a Espana and the world championships later this year now that his Tour de France has ended with a broken collarbone suffered early on in stage 9 . Speaking in a video recorded by his team, Porte expressed his obvious disappointment at having to leave the Tour for the second consecutive year following his crash and subsequent abandon last year, which also happened to be on stage 9. "Obviously, I'm disappointed. This is not the way we wanted it to end – the same as last year. It's obviously painful physically and mentally, but it is what it is," a relaxed-looking Porte said, his right arm and shoulder wrapped in a purple sling. Porte joined BMC to much fanfare in 2016, having finally been given a leadership opportunity at the Tour de France after working for ...

Tour Stage 10: Hope you’re well rested

Annecy - Le Grand Bornand (159km) The Boomtown Rats don’t like Mondays. Neither does Garfield. Me? It kind of depends. Sometimes I have a restful weekend and get to the office motivated and productive. Other times, I slouch into the office and struggle, and then I’m playing catch up all week. This Monday was a rest day for the peloton, but to be fair, they had a busier weekend than I did, and certainly had a tough Sunday. So Tuesday is their Monday, and how good they’re feeling when they come back to will have a big impact on the ultimate destination of the yellow jersey. The Route Make no mistake, they aren’t easing into the week. If they were office workers, this’d be an 8am presentation, multiple meetings and an evening committee, with no lunch. When Moo Productions asked, 10% of us thought this was the Queen Stage. The ...

Lizzie Deignan to lead new Trek women's WorldTour team

Lizzie Deignan to lead new Trek women's WorldTour team

Dan Alexander Joe Robinson 16 Jul 2018 The team will be built around former world champion Lizzie Deignan who is the team’s first signing. Bicycle manufacturer Trek has announced a new women’s professional road team for the 2019 season with the intention of riding in the UCI Women’s WorldTour.

On the move, Deignan has expressed her delight saying she’s 'thrilled' to sign as, 'the goals of the team perfectly align with my personal and professional goals'.

7mesh WK2 bibshorts and Quantum Jersey SS review

Hannah Troop Sunday, July 16, 2017 - 16:08 3.5 / 5 £120 - bibshorts ; £95 - jersey If you haven’t heard about 7mesh yet that’s quite understandable as the brand only made its debut back in 2015 and being Canadian it's not all that shouty. Its birthplace is the Coast Mountains of British Columbia so the kit is designed to take on Alpine passes one day by mountain bike the next day by road. Coming from a place where it’s all about the great outdoors, 7mesh believed that cycling apparel technically fell short for the backcountry adventurer. This took the founders on their own journey of quitting their jobs and creating kit that could keep up with their enthusiastic outdoor pursuits. Image 4 of 9 Image 4 of 9 7Mesh Quantum Jersey SS The 7Mesh Quantum Jersey SS has been designed for versatility, ‘daily fix’, which can be used ...

Chris Froome insists there is no inter-team rivalry at the Tour de France

Team Sky's Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas ride side by side during stage 5 at the Tour de France

Chris Froome ( Team Sky ) has played down any rivalry within the camp, insisting that the road will sort out the Tour de France contenders from each other. On the first rest day of the race Froome sits 8th overall, 1:42 down on race leader Greg Van Avermaet but 59 seconds down on his Team Sky teammate Geraint Thomas. Thomas came into the Tour on the back of a winning ride at the Critérium du Dauphiné but with Team Sky's dominance at the Tour in recent years, any hint of an internal rivalry within the squad is exaggerated. Froome comes into the Tour as the defending champion and has won the last three Grand Tours. The consensus is that Thomas is the team's plan B, even though he has not put a foot wrong since the Tour de France began over a week ago. "The race will decide that," ...
