Can a reborn Gilbert sweep the Ardennes again?

3 days ago

Philippe Gilbert is winning races again and the cycling world is a better place. Do two wins this week mean Philippe Gilbert is back? Despite not being Dutch, the Amstel Gold Race is as close as you can get to Gilbert’s home ground. His name has become almost synonymous with the race’s iconic Cauberg climb […]

8 Apr 2014

It took a remarkable individual performance from a time trial champion to win the Ronde van Vlaanderen. A dominant performance combining raw power, skill over the cobbles, and plenty of panache.

Does the Contador of old ride again?

18 Mar 2014

Alberto Contador’s pair of thrilling wins at Tirreno-Adriatico has struck a new layer of intrigue into the cycling season. Two devastating stage wins and a likely overall victory this week suggest the Spaniard has found his old legs. Perhaps Chris Froome will have some genuine competition in the Tour de France, after all. It’s hard […]

The new Paris-Nice is like champagne without bubbles

The new Paris-Nice is like champagne without bubbles

11 Mar 2014

Without the fine bubbles, Champagne would still be a quality white wine, made from good fruit by expert winemakers, but it’d lack something special. So it is with Paris-Nice. The race still boasts a high-quality roster of riders and will almost certainly be closely fought and exciting. Tom Boonen, Rui Costa, Vincenzo Nibali, Taylor Phinney, […]
