Opperman captain, Evans and Anderson for GC of Aussie Tour de France Team of the Century

by , 22 Nov 2014

Cadel Evans and Phil Anderson lead an all-star honorary cycling line-up named in honour of Australia’s centenary at the Tour de France. It is 100 years since Don Kirkham and Iddo “Snowy” Munro were the first Australians to ride at the three-week classic. But Stuart O’Grady is the glaring omission from the one-off Cycling Australia […]

Astana at it again! Film on women’s cycling! Brek Epic truly gets epic!

Lots of exclamation marks in that title but they were a necessity, not a luxury, because all three of these topics – in what has been a decidedly slow week in cycling – deserve them! First up is Astana. Or Satan-A, if you want to get all biblical and dark with your anagrams. Unbelievably, yet […]

Tonight Cycling Australia will announce its nine-man Tour de France ‘Team of the Century’ at its annual awards night in Melbourne. Being almost 15 years into the new millennium, you’d be entitled to ask “what century, exactly?” The answer is quite simple: the one that has just passed – starting in 1914 and ending in […]

ANDERSON: My Australian cycling team of the century

by , 21 Nov 2014

In recognition of the first Australian to ever ride the Tour de France, Cycling Australia have planned to name a nine-man team – the Australian Team of the century. A cross generational selection is extremely difficult. Since my own success at the Tour as the first non-European and Australian to ever wear the maillot jaune, […]

Andy Schleck: A grand loss to cycling

Stage 18 of the 2011 Tour de France, and Thomas Voeckler was fighting a daily battle to hold onto the yellow jersey. Cadel Evans was in second and hotly tipped to be in the prime position to snatch the lead from Voeckler that day. The Schleck brothers were next in line, with Frank third and […]

A real race of truth at the nationals this January

A real race of truth at the nationals this January

by , 20 Nov 2014

If competitors thought the course was tough at the national time trial championships earlier this year, they are going to hate what’s in store for them this time around. Back in January, the dusty, windswept paddocks and barren hills of the Burrumbeet circuit proved too much for some riders, including pre-race favourites Luke Durbridge and […]

The Taiwan KOM Challenge: All former suspended riders declined entry

by , 15 Nov 2014

We had a decision to make. The 2013 winner of the Taiwan KOM Challenge had arrived on the start line of the race fresh from a doping suspension, causing heated debate on internet as to the validity of his victory. The integrity of the event that we had been working hard on for so many […]

“It would be a real shame” Gerrans doesn’t want Evans to finish career as national champion

by , 15 Nov 2014

Simon Gerrans has extra motivation to keep the national road champion’s jersey off the back of fellow Australian cycling star Cadel Evans. While they have massive respect for each other, Gerrans said it would be a real shame if Evans took the jersey into retirement. The men’s elite road race at the January 7-11 nationals […]

Ain’t it a fine time to be on a bike?

Ain’t it a fine time to be on a bike?

by , 12 Nov 2014

It might be pro road cycling’s off-season, but the traditional Aussie summer thwack of leather on willow is now competing with the sounds of spinning freewheels and the insistent clacking of plastic cleats on cafe floors. Yes, the sun is out, the tan lines are crisping up nicely, and Australia’s cycling community is putting a […]
