Broeckx in a non-induced coma after motorbike incident at Baloise Belgium Tour
May 28, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Lotto Soudal's Stig Broeckx is in a non-induced coma after being involved in an crash with two motorbikes during stage 3 at the Baloise Belgium Tour on Saturday. Following the massive crash, which was sparked when two motorcycles collided and then drove into some 19 riders, Broeckx was airlifted by helicopter to the neurological centre at Aachen hospital. It was first reported that Broeckx had sustained a serious head injury. Lotto Soudal later released a statement that expressed the severity of his injuries, which include bleeding in two places in his brain and a fractured eye socket. Team doctor Servaas Bing confirmed that Broeckx is in a non-induced coma. "It was immediately clear that Stig had incurred a head injury and that he needed to be transported to a neurosurgical centre. Together with the race doctor and the medical emergency team we decided to transport him to the hospital of Aachen, which has the necessary infrastructure. A scan was taken at the hospital and it showed that Stig has two bleedings in his brain. Stig is in a non-induced coma, but for the moment he doesn't need to undergo surgery. He doesn't have a skull fracture, but he does have a fractured eye socket, which will be further evaluated later. At this point, it is very difficult to give a prognosis about a full recovery. The next 24 hours he will be very closely monitored."ADVERTISEMENT Manager Marc Sergeant also made a statement noting that Broeckx had recently been involved in an incident with a motorcycle at Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. "Of course we are very shaken by all that has happened today. Last year our team had very difficult moments after the accident of Kris Boeckmans, exactly three months ago Stig was already hit by a motorbike in Kuurne and a few weeks later the peloton had to cope with the death of Antoine Demoiti. This is very hard for all staff members and riders, but even more for the family and friends of Stig. We can only hope that there is a positive evolution in the condition of Stig and we will support him and his family the best we can, both medically and emotionally." Following the incident, race organizers neutralized the race but then called it off altogether. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Giro d'Italia stage 19 highlights - Video
May 27, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Stage 19 shook the Giro d'Italia from top to bottom as embattled Italian star Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) soloed to a revitalising stage win, climbing to second overall after Steven Kruijswijk (Lotto-NL-Jumbo) crashed on a descent and Esteban Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge) leaped into the overall race lead.ADVERTISEMENT The drama took place as Nibali, Chaves and Kruijswijk crested the Colle dell'Agnello together. The Italian descent specialist pressed the pace, and Kruijswijk cracked just three corners down, smashing into a snowbank and attempting to recover while his rivals slipped away. From there it was a classic chase at the Dutchman set off, alone at first, after the two escapees who rode together to the bottom of the final climb to the Risoul ski area.

Kruijswijk's Giro d'Italia questionable after rib fracture diagnosed
May 27, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
On Thursday, it seemed as if Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNl-Jumbo) had the Giro d'Italia sewn up and would be arriving inTurin as the first Dutch winner in the race's history. Even on the top of the Cima Coppi on stage 18, Kruijswijk had the race under firm control, even distancing third placed AlejandroValverde (Movistar) on the ascent. But one small mistake over the top, and his hopes came crashing down on the descent of the Colle dell'Agnelo on stage 19: Kruijswijk misjudged a turn and crashed into a wall of ice and snow, then tumbled head over heels onto the tarmac. After the stage in which he lost the maglia rosa to Esteban Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge), Kruijswijk was in deep pain, physically and emotionally. He underwent scans inBrianon, and the LottoNl-Jumbo team confirmed late Friday that Kruijswijk had sustained a fractured rib, and is suffering from pain in his foot and side.ADVERTISEMENT The team will give a new update on Saturday morning on whether Kruijswijk, who is currently third overall behind Chaves and Vincenzo Nibali(Astana), 1:05 off the race leader, will continue the race. Stage 20 from Guillestra to Sant'Anna di Vinadio is only 134km long, but will be an intense day of racing with three category 1 climbs and an uphill category 3 finishing climb.

Giro d'Italia: Stage 17 highlights - Video
May 25, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Stage 17 of the Giro d'Italia featured an exhilerating finale, and a massive upset as Roger Kluge(IAM Cycling) soloed away for victory just metres ahead of a despairing group of sprinters. The sprint teams left it late to bring back the day's breakaway, which had swelled from three to six in the final portion of the race, but the race looked to be all back together with a couple of kilometres remaining. Pippo Pozzato went off the front under the flamme rouge and while the sprint trains hesitated, Kluge saw an opportunity and went off in pursuit. Using his track power, he caught and passed Pozzato with ease, and when the sprinters finally got their act together Kluge was far enough ahead to sit up and celebrate his first Grand Tour victory.ADVERTISEMENT You can watch how it unfolded in our highlights video above.

Giro d'Italia: Kruijswijk wastes no time in defence of the pink jersey
May 24, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Stage winner Alejandro Valverde suggested that Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo) was going to win the Giro d'Italia thanks to his strength and know how, and the Dutchman seems to have learnt quickly from other Grand Tour winners by keeping his time at the post-race press conference to a minimum after the finish in Andalo. As race leader, Kruijswijk has to do live 'flash' television interviews, climb on the podium to collect the maglia rosa, do further interviews for Eurosport and Italian television, speak to radio and non-rights holder television and often go to anti-doping, all before heading to the press centre to attend a final press conference reserved for the written press. The whole process can take up an hour, which cuts into the limited recovery time after each stage. Despite the intense 132km of racing to Andalo, where Kruijswijk was isolated and came under attack, he always looked in control and was able to surge to the finish with Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and perhaps even gift him the stage victory. It was a show of strength and patronage. As Nibali cracked and lost more time and with Esteban Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge) on the back foot all day, Kruijswijk seemed to take total control of the Giro d'Italia.ADVERTISEMENT He even looked fresh and well recovered when he finally sat down in the press conference, responding questions with the same ease that he had responded to the many attacks from his rivals during the stage. His confidence also seems to be growing as his overall lead extends to three minutes. "I'm in first so maybe he (Valverde) is right, but you can never underestimate you rivals," he said. "Maybe it looked I was in control but there was a lot of attack on the first climb. I saw it coming because Movistar set the pace early on. But I knew the guys I had to watch and so reacted quickly on the attacks and knew that if I followed them and if we attacked together, there wouldn't be many riders up there. It was a good situation to be in. I felt good today."

Giro d'Italia: Valverde takes comfort from stage win and podium spot
May 24, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) celebrated his first ever stage victory at the Giro d'Italia with gusto in Andalo, insisting his debut in the Corsa Rosa has been a success despite now only fighting for a place on the podium rather than overall victory. Valverde hugged his soigneur and lifted his bike in the air after beating Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo) in an intense sprint to the line after an equally intense and aggressively raced stage 16 that saw Esteban Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge) and especially Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) lose time in the battle for places on the podium. Valverde gained 42 seconds on the Colombian and 1:47 on the struggling Sicilian to jump above him into third overall. Valverde is 3:23 down on Kruijswijk but only 23 seconds down on Chaves.ADVERTISEMENT "I had two big goals before the race: to win a stage and secure a place on the podium. Now we got one and we're there for the other one," Valverde argued. "There are still two big stages to come and I'm happy how my Giro is going. The team is strong and now were even first in team competition, too. I'm enjoying the Giro and I now regret not coming before. Now I'm happy to be here." Valverde had promised to be aggressive on the short but mountainous stage from Bressanone to Andalo and his Movistar team pushed the pace before the Passo della Mendola at the halfway point. Valverde made several attacks and ensured he was in the select front group that later distanced Nibali and ensured that Chaves never caught them.
