August 16, 2015 (13:03) [ Indexed from ]
Joaquim Rodriguez will be the leader of the Katusha team at this years Vuelta a Espaa, where he will bid to turn a string of high overall placings into a first Grand Tour victory of his career. The Spaniard has an impressive record in his home three-week race, finishing fourth in the last two years, third in 2012, and picking up six top-10 finishes in seven editions. He comes into this years race on the back of a fine Tour de France where, despite not being up there on GC, he took two stage wins, the first on the Mur de Huy and the second in the Pyrenees. Katushas nine-man roster is weighted between Spaniards like Rodrguez and riders from Russia, the home country of the team, and is a relatively old one with an average age of just over 32. Daniel Moreno, who won a stage and was 10th overall at the 2013 Vuelta, joins Alberto Losada and 38-year-old Angel Vicioso in the Spanish contingent, while the Russians are Vladimir Isaychev, Pavel Kochetkov, Egor Silin, Eduard Vorganov.ADVERTISEMENT The team is rounded out by Italian Giampaolo Caruso who, along with Losada, is the only rider to have done the Tour de France this year with Rodrguez.Rodrguez will be encouraged by the nature of the climbs in this years route and particularly look forward to the brutal mountain stage in Andorra on home roads he will be very familiar with. Katusha for the 2015 Vuelta a Espaa: Joaquim Rodriguez, Giampaolo Caruso, Vladimir Isaychev, Pavel Kochetkov, Alberto Losada, Daniel Moreno, Egor Silin, Angel Vicioso and Eduard Vorganov.

Wiggins boosts Olympic hopes with successful return to track
August 16, 2015 (13:03) [ Indexed from ]
Bradley Wiggins hopes of retiring as the most decorated British Olympian of all time were given a boost on Friday as he made a storming return to the track. At the opening round of the 2015/16 Revolution Series in Derby, the 35-year-old formed part of a Great Britain quartet that rode to victory in the team pursuit in a time of 3 minutes 54.974 seconds. Joined by Steven Burke, Owain Doull and Jon Dibben, Wiggins was doing two-laps turns in the qualifying rounds before Ed Clancy replaced Dibben for the final and the quartet set a time that was just a shade over three seconds shy of the world record.ADVERTISEMENT It will do no harm to Wiggins hopes of lining up in the team pursuit at the Olympic Games in Rio next year, where he would be going for an eighth Olympic medal that would take him past Sir Chris Hoy's tally of seven. Its nice to get up and do a fast time like that, a world class time, on a not so good track. Its good being back with the boys the last few weeks. It took me a while after the Hour Record to realise I wanted to do it again so its good to be back, its a good laugh, thats what its all about, said Wiggins in front of the BBC microphone. All that drivel they were talking about at the end of last year when I was watching the World Cup in London about whether I could still do it or not. You come back here and, its great, I love it, weve got a really good group of guys, which is what you need, you cant do it on your own. Tonight was testament to that. We were looking at the graph just then and it was just flat really and thats what its going to take to win Olympic gold so its really good. You can read more at More...

Young South African prospect Louis Meintjes is set to turn down interest from several WorldTour teams and re-sign with MTN " Qhubeka for the next two seasons.

A few teams have been asking about him but his future lies with MTN. The team is backing him for the future and I think staying is in his best interests. Thats where hell end up, his agent said.

Bennett blazes Arctic Race of Norway
August 16, 2015 (13:03) [ Indexed from ]
Another season and another small milestone for Sam Bennett (Bora-Argon 18), who moved his win tally up to four for the season after victory on stage 2 of the Arctic Race of Norway. The 24-year-old edged out Frederico Zurlo (UnitedHealthcare) and race leader Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) in the finish at Setermoen and now has a win more than he did from the entirety of last season. This was perhaps his best win of the season too, with the Irishman coming from a long way back to seal an impressive stage win. After a third place on stage 1 Bennett is showing a fine patch of post-Tour de France form. This is up there with my best wins. And its really good for my morale. Every year I want to step up and improve and last year I had three wins but I wanted an extra win this year to really say that Ive made another step. Ive got that now, he told Cyclingnews after his win.ADVERTISEMENT Bennett owned much to his team for this performance, especially Zakkari Dempster, who encouraged the sprinter to fight on despite what Bennett perceived as poor legs. It was hectic but coming into the last 10K I was feeling so bad and told the guys that I didnt want to sprint but then Zak yelled at me to try and the boys did an incredible job and led me out perfectly. They kept their cool, which was really important. We got a bit swamped and I lost a wheel and was in a bad position but just kept coming through gaps. There was a bit of luck, the door opened and I had to go. There couldnt be any hesitation. With four wins under his belt for the season Bennett can turn his attention to final two stages in Norway before a final block of racing in Europe. Stage 3 of Arctic race is designed for the climbers but the final stage could see Bennett in the mix once more. Ill give it a go and the pressure is off the team now so well give it absolutely everything. Whatever the outcome from the final two days, Bennett is pleased with the level of consistency he has shown throughout a season that has seen him race from February until August. Im delighted. In my head a good sprinter has to get wins all year round and he has to win when he feels good and bad. Theres also some consistency there too with my third yesterday. You can read more at More...
