Re-mojoed Gilbert can now eye a second Ardennes triple

There was something of a deja-vu when I tuned in to watch the finale of Easter Sunday’s Amstel Gold race in Valkenburg. In fact, I initially felt rather short-changed. “So annoying,” I tweeted. “Set the timer for the Amstel Gold but it was just a re-run of the 2012 World Championships. Still none the wiser […]

After being robbed of glory by Roman Kreuziger’s surprise breakaway victory last year, surely the favourites will not let it happen twice? Join The Roar from 10:00pm AEST and follow all the […]

Why Wiggins will be foiled by cobblestones

Why Wiggins will be foiled by cobblestones

In memory of the recently passed cobbled classics, let’s reflect on what makes a winner, what a cobblestone is, and why it’s okay to be confused. Firstly, the word cobble comes from ‘cob’, meaning ‘rounded lump’. It’s what I consider the most understating descriptor of cobblestones imaginable, setting the scene of an almighty shock for […]

We have just passed the zenith of the Spring Classics season for another year. There are many great races at this time of the calendar, but ultimately it is the Ronde van Vlaanderen and the Paris-Roubaix that hold that something extra special. Never a favourite of mine to race, the Queen of the Classics (Roubaix) […]

Out-of-favour Goss needs to rise to Bling’s challenge

News this week that Michael ‘Bling’ Matthews will ride the Giro while Matthew Goss, who was heading to Italy, will now ride the Tour of California and Tour de Suisse, poses a major question – has Goss lost his mantle as Orica-GreenEDGE’s No. 1 sprinter? The obvious answer for now is yes, as Bling is […]

Yes, I know, I’m British so I would say that. But he can. Here’s why. Long before he won the Tour de France, which I did not see coming – I know I shouldn’t admit that, I’m supposed to be a cycling journalist for heaven’s sake – I saw him winning a Classic. In fact […]

Crikey, what an edition of Paris-Roubaix that was. If you weren’t up out of your seat several times over the last 60km, you’re either terminally bed-ridden or already devoid of breath. It was that thrilling. We, the weatherbeaten scandal-weary cycling fans, finally got just what we’d been begging for like puppies for so long – […]

The Omega Pharma-Quick Step team live and breathe for the spring classics. Niki Terpstra’s win in Paris-Roubaix, then, was a defibrillator reviving a body flat-lining its way to oblivion. In Milan-San Remo back in March, the Belgian team had both Mark Cavendish and Zdenek Stybar in the final sprint but missed out on a podium […]
