Is Contador really taking it easy at the Vuelta?

Is Contador really taking it easy at the Vuelta?

2 days ago

Alberto Contador is back for the Vuelta a Espana, and this changes everything. Hang on a second, does it? Can the Spanish superstar really be expected to be competitive only a few weeks after fracturing his tibia? Let’s wind back a bit. You may recall Contador crashed out of Stage 10 of the Tour de […]

Is Cadel back in the hunt for the Vuelta?

Is Cadel back in the hunt for the Vuelta?

12 Aug 2014

I don’t want to alarm anyone, but Cadel Evans has ridden himself back into excellent form just in time for the Vuelta a Espana. That’s the only conclusion you can draw when the Australian bagged two consecutive stage wins in the Tour of Utah. Yes, the Tour of Utah (UCI 2.1) is hardly a Grand […]

Congratulations to Australia’s Zak Dempster and Luke Durbridge for finishing their first Tours de France. I’ve scraped together a few contentious bones to […]

Commonwealth Games Preview: Keirin and Sprint Cycling

Commonwealth Games Preview: Keirin and Sprint Cycling

24 Jul 2014

What do these absurd names mean? Three different ways of sending a track bike around a velodrome at ludicrous speeds. The individual sprint is one of the purest of cycling events: two riders go head-to-head on the velodrome, in a battle of power, speed and tactics. Riders must defeat their opponent in two-out-of-three heats to […]

Commonwealth Games Preview: Anna Meares

Commonwealth Games Preview: Anna Meares

24 Jul 2014

If Anna Meares isn’t already one of your sporting heroes, your priorities are wrong. Australia’s Commonwealth Games flag-bearer is a sporting national treasure, and in her fourth Commonwealth Games she’s yet again a hot favourite for multiple gold medals. Fierce power, incredible speed, tactical genius would be enough to make her a star on the […]
