Kristoff follows tried-and-trusted road to Tour of Flanders
March 23, 2017 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
At this stage in the game, Alexander Kristoff knows his way around the Flemish Ardennes. While some of his Katusha-Alpecin teammates went to reconnoitre the Kwaremont and Paterberg ahead of E3 Harelbeke, the Norwegian opted for a shorter ride following his arrival at the teams Classics base, the Park Hotel in Kortrijk, on Thursday morning. As well as the roads, Kristoff knows his own best route the day of days, the Tour of Flanders. While most of his rivals will rest in the week that follows Gent-Wevelgem, Kristoff will, yet again, prepare for the Ronde amid the cut and thrust of the Three Days of De Panne. The approach has served him well in years past, and he sees no reason to change. My body needs a little bit of beating up to get ready. Its not like I can relax and get ready, Im not built that way, Kristoff told Cyclingnews. Some people can have an easier approach and arrive in good shape, but I need to be really pushed hard and get really tired, and then after two days of rest, Im there.ADVERTISEMENT Winner of the Tour of Flanders in 2015, Kristoff has never quite replicated that form in the dress rehearsals of E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem. Usually at these two races this weekend, I was never so good, but maybe I can change that this year, he said. I am here and the shape is quite good, but usually I need a bit more of these types of races to really come in the rhythm. Every year I use these two races and De Panne to be good in Flanders, but hopefully I manage to show myself a little bit tomorrow also. Kristoff arrives in Belgium following a series of performances largely in line with his early-season form over the preceding three years, as he clocked up a hat-trick of stage wins at the Tour of Oman. For the third time in five years, Kristoff proceeded to win the bunch sprint at the end of Milan-San Remo, though as in 2013, he was competing for a minor placing rather than the victory. Even so, he came away from La Classicissima with few regrets. Well, it was the first time I won the sprint on Via Roma, because I won on the harbour [the previous finish at the Lungomare Italo Calvino " ed.] before, Kristoff pointed out. I wont say Im disappointed because I did everything I could. I wasnt dropped on the Poggio, whereas in other years I was sometimes distanced a little bit. This year we went really fast and I managed to hold the group. Sagan You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Vanmarcke suffers off day at Dwars door Vlaanderen
March 22, 2017 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
This morning Cyclingnews asked readers on social media to caption a photo we took of Sep Vanmarcke (Cannondale-Drapac) clambering over a barrier towards a cafe at the start of Dwars door Vlaanderen.A few hours later, after Vanmarcke had crossed the finish line anonymously in the main peloton, some of those caption efforts proved awkwardly accurate, with the Belgian revealing that bowel problems held him back in the first of an all-important run of cobbled classics. "By 10 o'clock Id already been on the toilet four times," he told Cyclingnews and several Belgian reporters outside the Cannondale-Drapac bus. "Straight from the start I felt weird. I was running on empty, and maybe thats why I didnt feel good today." Vanmarcke, a perennial animator of the spring classics, missed the boat when Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) attacked on the Berendries, forming the first key selection of the race with just over 75 kilometres remaining. Despite committing teammates to the chase, alongside Arnaud Demares FDJ, hed never see the front of the race again.ADVERTISEMENT "During the race I told the guys that I wasn't feeling great, but I told them to keep racing to see where we would end up. When others were passing me they saw I wasn't going well. I felt it throughout the race, so I wasn't surprised during the finale," he said. "It's no fun this way, even though I was still in the first main group and racing along. Normally I should be capable of taking the initiative or following the moves, but that wasn't the case today." Vanmarcke revealed last week that he was suffering with lingering rib pain caused by a crash at Strade Bianche earlier this month. Short of breath when making big efforts, he opted to struggle through Tirreno-Adriatico so as not to lose form ahead of the Classics, and hoped that a visit to the physio last Wednesday would put him back on track.

Recon Ride: E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem - Podcast
March 21, 2017 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
With Milan-San Remo in the books, Classics season is truly in full swing. The one-day specialists have a full slate of racing ahead on bumpy Belgian terrain. After a midweek appetizer on the cobblestones of Dwars door Vlaanderen, riders will contest the Record Bank E3 Harelbeke on Friday and Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday. Featuring many of the same iconic cobbled climbs as the Tour of Flanders, E3 is a perfect tune-up race, but it's earned its place as a coveted Classics prize in its own right. The list of recent champions more than lives up to the race's WorldTour billing. Former winner Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will be among the top favorites again this year, as will Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing), Sep Vanmarcke (Cannondale) and at least half of the Quick-Step line-up. Gent-Wevelgem is the older of the two races and has long been a favored battleground for the fast finishers, but impressive attacks in recent editions have denied the sprinters their chance to battle for the win. Time will tell if the likes of Alexander Kristoff (Katusha-Alpecin), John Degenkolb (Trek-Segafredo), Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors), and Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) will have the final say Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT To subscribe to the Cyclingnews Podcast, click here.

Contador still in GC hunt but 'a long way off' top rivals after Catalunya TTT
March 21, 2017 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alberto Contador has his work cut out for him at the Volta a Catalunya this week after Tuesday's unusually long stage 2 team time trial. Trek-Segafredo finished fourth on the day, 1:15 down on the stage-winning Movistar squad. It was a solid ride, but that's a hefty deficit to make up on the likes of Alejandro Valverde in a one-week race. "I am happy, we have given everything, we have been quite well-organised and we did a good TTT, but we are a long way off our most important rivals," Contador said. "Valverde is 1:15 ahead, which is a lot. Now we have to look at the upcoming stages, starting with La Molina, which is not very hard as an ascent and where there may well be no big differences. Perhaps the time bonuses will be the most important time gaps."ADVERTISEMENT Valverde isn't the only rider standing in Contador's way, as stage 2 runner-up BMC Racing and third-placed Team Sky both have contenders for the overall victory. "The race has got more complicated because van Garderen and Sky with Froome and Thomas are all ahead," Contador said. "So we'll have to see what we can do." Nevertheless, Contador is not throwing in the towel just yet, and he sees openings in the days to come, particularly given the way recent editions of the race have played out. The Spaniard was second to Movistar's Nairo Quintana last year by just seven seconds. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

March 20, 2017 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The rumoured partnership between the Tour de France owners Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) and the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya was confirmed by the ASO on Monday. The oldest Spanish stage race, which is currently taking place, has survived on support from the Catalan government, but recently signed a major sponsor in Carrefour, which also backs several of ASO's races.

Yann Le Moenner, the ASO's general director, emphasised his company's part in the race's future. "This partnership ensures we'll be there for the 100th edition of the Volta a Catalunya in 2020 and tackle future challenges together," he said.
