"A great indication was the first camp we just had, and we've come across some outstanding athletes that hadn't been on the track before," Sutton said.

Goodyear launches bicycle tires
Goodyear is the latest automotive manufacturer to make inroads into the cycling market. The tire manufacturer is rolling out a full line of bicycle tires for road, mountain, gravel and commuter bikes. Pirelli PZero Velo road tyre review When auto manufacturers do bikes The future of transportation Goodyear is striving to reposition itself as a “mobility company.” This is a common refrain we’ve heard from many automotive companies in recent years. “The bicycle is becoming a larger part of the transportation equation,” says Luke Musselman, president of Goodyear’s new bicycle division. It’s a forward-thinking strategy to meet the changing transportation needs of consumers. In the case of Goodyear, it also hearkens to the company’s origins. The first product Goodyear produced was a bicycle tire, developed in 1898. Goodyear’s new cycling line was developed in conjunction with tire design company Rubber Kinetics. From the start, the brand is offering a wide ...
Campagnolo 12-speed Record and Super Record groups launch
This article originally appeared on BikeRadar Campagnolo has launched 12-speed Super Record and Record groupsets in rim-brake and hydraulic-disc options. Launched in the 85th year of the storied brand, all the 12-speed groups feature mechanical shifting. Notably, the 12-speed groups are compatible with current 11-speed Campagnolowheels, as the brand narrowed the cassette's sprocket spacing and the chain. When Campagnolo announced 11-speed back in 2009 — the first of the three major component manufacturers to do so — some critics voiced concern that the then-narrower chain wouldn't be as strong as 10-speed, nor would it shift as well. Of course, now Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo 11-speed groups are standard, and function very well. Campagnolo expects a similar pattern with 12-speed.

Paris-Roubaix tech gallery: 101 images from the Hell of the North
The 2018 edition of Paris-Roubaix was won by Bora-Hansgrohe rider Peter Sagan. His powerful attack with 50 kilometres remaining was unmatched and ultimately unbeatable despite a heroic effort from Swiss national champion and AG2R La Mondiale rider Silvan Dillier, who finished second to Sagan in a sprint after surviving a full day in the break. The race and day was overshadowed by the tragic death of 23-year-old Michael Goolaerts who suffered a cardiac arrest after around 100 kilometres of racing. The Belgian was racing his first Paris-Roubaix in his fourth season with the Verandas Willems-Crelan team.
