Who Are The Favourites For The Elite Women's Road World Championships 2021?

Who are the favourites for the elite women's road World Championships 2021?

Robyn Davidson 20 Sep 2021 The Dutch team are looking to avoid a repeat of the Olympic Games. As expected, the women’s field for the Elite Women’s Road Race World Championships on Saturday the 25th of September is absolutely stacked. It’s hard to look past the Dutch team once again, but as we saw in the Olympics, anything can happen. Here are some of the key names to follow… Annemiek van Vleuten, Netherlands Age: 38 Trade team: Movistar Team Best Elite Women’s Road result: 1st (2019) It’ll be interesting to see how the Dutch team respond at Worlds after their less-than-expected performance at the Olympic Games. Pencilled in to win at least one medal – gold very much on the cards – they didn’t realise Anna Kiesenhofer was ahead until after the line. Van Vleuten still won an impressive silver and then achieved gold in the time trial, with a ...

The Top 10 Riders From The 2021 Spring Classics

Joe Robinson 27 Apr 2021 A breakdown of the best riders this spring and the rider we ranked first among them all And just like that, the 2021 Spring Classics season is over. It only feels like yesterday that we were cracking open our first Belgian Tripels of the year, settling in on the sofa for an afternoon of enjoying back-to-back coverage of the men’s and women’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and yet, with the conclusion of Liege-Bastogne-Liege , it is all over again for another year. In a spring that missed Paris-Roubaix for a second consecutive year, no one rider really dominated throughout the period in either the men’s or women’s peloton. Instead, the very best kindly shared the spoils among one another with no rider taking home more than two one-day victories this spring. We also learned that Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert are human, the ...

Mark Cavendish Is A Believer Once Again

Joe Robinson 13 Apr 2021 Victory at the Tour of Turkey was as much down to Cavendish's undeniable self-belief as it was his ability Words : Joe Robinson Photography : Deceuninck-QuickStep Is Mark Cavendish back ? In a word, no. No, Mark Cavendish is not back, at least not to the Cavendish of days gone by – the man who won 20 Tour de France stages in four years, who launched a rocket of a sprint at the 2009 Milan-San Remo to win a race that he had no right to win and who completely reinvented the discipline of sprinting with his HTC-Columbia team. Cavendish is not about to hit an Indian Summer within his career either. Don’t expect the Manxman to have a Michael Jordan ‘Last Dance’ moment, headlining the Deceuninck-QuickStep team at the Tour later this year with his eyes on another six-stage haul. No one, including Mark ...

Eurosport And Gcn Secure Rights To Flanders Classics Races

Eurosport and GCN secure rights to Flanders Classics races

Will Strickson 25 Mar 2021 After previously bagging Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, a deal to show races including the Tour of Flanders and Amstel Gold has now been reached Eurosport and GCN have finally confirmed they have reached an agreement to show Flanders Classics races for the next four years. After extensive negotiations with Swiss company Infront, which has exclusive rights to Flanders Classics races and the Amstel Gold Race, a long-term deal was finally struck, giving Eurosport and GCN permission to broadcast both the men's and women's races in Europe and Asia (excluding China). That means that, along with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad – for which an agreement was already in place after a last-minute deal before Opening Weekend – you will be able to watch Gent-Wevelgem, Dwars door Vlaanderen, the Tour of Flanders, Scheldeprijs, Brabantse Pijl, Brussels Cycling Classic and the Amstel Gold Race on Eurosport and GCN+.
