Australia’s male road cyclist of the year is a no-brainer. Or is it? The UCI’s sixth-ranked nation has yet again produced some amazing individual performances for virtually the entire season. Simon Gerrans almost book-ended his season in the most perfect way but just failed to snare the dream of World Champion to go with the […]

by , 21 Oct 2014

Cycling is a sport where the highs of a stage win one day can come crashing down in a pile of twisted bodies and machinery the next – as highlighted by Specialized Securitor at the last women’s National Road Series (NRS) event in Ballarat over the weekend. The team celebrated victory on Stage 1 of […]

I met Thor Hushovd once. I was racing in the 2012 Tour of Qatar as a member of the RTS Racing Team, previously known as the Giant Racing Team. We’d been invited by virtue of being the third best team in Asia in 2011, after two Iranian teams. So, there I was, sat at the […]

Well, this is nearly it. The 2014 pro cycling season has burned down to a few scattered embers, the Northern Hemisphere cyclocross season has started, and most of the pro road-peloton is off enjoying a few of life’s pleasures, guilt free. The World Tour champion has been decided – veteran Spaniard Alejandro Valverde’s consistency securing […]

Ride all three Grand Tours? Tink again!

by , 18 Oct 2014

Earlier this month cycling pro-team Tinkoff-Saxo owner Oleg Tinkov opened the Tinkoff Bank vault to put up €1 million if Alberto Contador, Nairo Quintana, Chris Froome and Vincenzo Nibali compete in all three of next year’s Grand Tours. All they have to do is turn up and ride each tour to bag €250,000 each. Sounds […]

Saxo-Tinkoff owner Oleg Tinkov courted controversy by inviting the world’s four top cyclists to go head-to-head over the roads of Italy, France and Spain next season. The Russian billionaire’s ‘Three Grand Tour’ proposal would see Alberto Contador, Chris Froome, Vincenzo Nibali and Nairo Quintana fight for their portion of a €1 million kitty should they […]

There’s nothing like dreaming big, and when you’re used to getting your own way, why let a little media skepticism get in the way. A few hours after The Roar published last week’s piece on Oleg Tinkov’s plans for a one million Euro, Grand Tour ride-off between Alberto Contador, Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana and Vincenzo […]

Instead of punishing dirty cyclists, should we reward the clean?

Instead of punishing dirty cyclists, should we reward the clean?

by , 14 Oct 2014

Cycling’s perennial bugbear – doping – has reared its head again, with highly visible EPO positives to the Iglinskiy brothers, the rather limp response from their Astana team, and the evident toothlessness of the MPCC group which claims to safeguard clean cycling. For all the talk about ‘different’ racing styles, biological passports and a new […]

Belgium’s Wallays wins Paris-Tours classic

by , 13 Oct 2014

Jelle Wallays of Belgium outsprinted Thomas Voeckler to win the Paris-Tours classic on Sunday. Voeckler made his move 200 metres from the finish line, but Wallays easily overtook the French veteran. Seven riders, including Voeckler and Wallays, escaped in the opening kilometres to build a lead that reached 6 minutes, 40 seconds. Australian Heinrich Haussler […]

United States Anti-doping Agency chief executive Travis Tygart on Thursday called on Lance Armstrong to spill the secrets of his doping shame under oath for the good of cycling.
