Felline stays with Trek-Segafredo through 2018
September 26, 2016 (13:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
26-year-old Fabio Felline has renewed his contract with Trek-Segafredo through the end of the 2018 season. The two-year deal comes on the heels of the Italian's points classification win in the Vuelta a Espaa. Felline's season was hampered by a serious crash in the neutralised section of the Amstel Gold Race that left him with a broken nose and a fracture to the base of his skull. The injuries kept him out of competition for two months. He returned for the Italian championships, coming 8th behind Manuel Quinziato in the time trial, and by the Tour of Poland in July he had re-found his form, coming second overall. Although he fell shy of winning his first Grand Tour stage in the Vuelta a Espaa, his five top-three finishes earned him the overall green jersey and a new contract with the Trek-Segafredo team.ADVERTISEMENT General Manager Luca Guercilena was impressed with how Felline came back from his injuries. "Fabio has been very professional since the beginning, but I have to admit I am very, very proud of the way he behaved after his horrifying crash in this year's Amstel Gold Race," Guercilena said. "He was really focused on his recovery and worked hard to be back on the bike as soon as he could. It was a long and hard road, but when he took second place overall in the Tour of Poland, we knew right away he was back, and in a big way! How he took and defended his green jersey in the Vuelta was world class. With top-3 places on very diverse parcours, he proved to be able to surpass himself and to surprise everyone. "It goes without saying we are very pleased to have re-signed Fabio for the next two seasons. With the development he has undergone, I expect him to show us some great things in the coming years."

Van Aert to ride Jingle World Cup cross race despite fracture toe
September 24, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Cyclo-cross world champion Wout van Aert has confirmed he will ride todays elite mens World Cup Jingle Cross race in Iowa City despite fracturing his left big toe during the CrossVegas race on Wednesday. The Belgian travelled to Iowa City on Thursday night after a medical visit and x-rays confirmed the hairline fracture. Van Aert revealed he was in pain during a training ride on Friday but said he will race the World Cup event. "The feeling after training was not bad. The swelling did not increase after the training ride, so therefore I decided to start in the second round of the World Cup, Van Aert said in a message posted on his personal website.ADVERTISEMENT "Today (Friday) I have a cycled 45km with my teammates. That test wasnt that bad thanks to the taped toes and a painkiller but I didnt real put force on the pedals because I couldnt. After consulting with my family doctor, I decided not to do a route reconnaissance, which would have been an additional burden. Van Aert won the CrossVegas World Cup race despite an early crash on a set of stairs. He fought his way back into the mix and eventually won alone, scoring maximum World Cup points. The pain in his toe emerged overnight, hampering his travel to Iowa City and his hopes of a second victory and early lead in the World Cup standings. "Once back at the hotel we put ice on the foot, but the swelling was really intense. When I woke up Thursday morning, I could barely take any steps and I quickly realized that there was more to it. We decided to visit a local doctor, who sent us in turn to an orthopedic center. After taking the x-rays, it turned out that there was indeed a crack in my big toe, he explained. Van Aert is hoping that the adrenaline of Saturdays race will help him handle the pain in his toe. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

UCI to hold rider safety discussions at Il Lombardia
September 23, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Rider safety has become an increasingly pressing item on the cycling agenda in recent years, and the UCI will hold a working group at Il Lombardia next week, bringing riders, teams and race organisers together to discuss further regulations for next season. The Cyclistes Professionnels Associs (CPA), the Association Internationale des Groupes Cyclistes Professionnels (AIGCP) and the Association Internationale des Organisateurs de Courses Cyclistes (AIOCC), will represent riders, teams, and race organisersrespectively. In addition to the planned talks, the UCI announced it has already taken action to improve safety at one of the final races of this season - its own road World Championships in Qatar next month.The road races start out in the desert before finishing with laps of Doha's Corniche, with the following measures set to be imposed:ADVERTISEMENT Road works to remove and adapt traffic islands to improve the racing line of the final 1.5 kilometres of the circuit; The position of barriers will be appropriately adapted to take into account the width of the road in certain sections; The caravan will feature smaller, lighter trail-type motorbikes without panniers; All vehicles will be driven by people with significant previous experience of driving at races. The issue of rider safety has come into focus in the past couple of years due to an alarming string of incidents, with Antoine Demoiti losing his life after being hit by a motorbike at Gent-Wevelgem, and Stig Broeckx still in a coma after a similar incident at the Belgium Tour in May. Numerous other riders have been involved in collisions with vehicles, while other incidents have arisen from course design "from barriers to road furniture " as the scars on Peter Stetinas knee would attest. Earlier this year, the UCI announced it had introduced new guidelines governing in-race vehicles, but they essentially stressed the importance of following the existing rules, with punishment for those acting negligently. As such, ahead of the UCIs June management committee, the CPA called on the governing body to take concrete action, and tabled a list of proposals to enhance safety.

Boonen abandons Eneco Tour after crash on stage 4
September 22, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Tom Boonen (Etixx-QuickStep) has been forced to abandon the Eneco Tour after crashing early during stage 4, from Aalter to Sint-Pieters-Leeuw in Belgium. Boonen was examined in hospital in Deinze, where x-rays revealed no fractures, and the Belgian was cleared to return home. In a statement on Thursday afternoon, Boonen's Etixx-QuickStep team noted that he has been ordered to rest until the end of this week before resuming training. "Right after the incident, reminiscent of the one in the 2015 Abu Dhabi Tour, where Tom crashed and hit his head, suffering a left temporal bone fracture, the 35-year-old was attended by Etixx " Quick-Steps doctor, who decided that the best thing for Tom " who had a few abrasions on his body " was to abandon the race as precautionary measure and go by ambulance to the nearest hospital, so that his condition gets evaluated," the statement read.ADVERTISEMENT "Fortunately, the cervical X-ray he underwent at the St. Vincentius Hospital in Deinze didnt reveal any injury, so Tom " winner of three races this season " was cleared by the doctors to go home, where he is to rest until the end of the week, before returning to training." Although Boonen was reportedly able to remount after the crash, he soon wheeled to a halt again and abandoned the race. The 35-year-old was immediately taken to hospital for further examination after telling doctors that he had been left dazed by the crash. Tom Boonen was eating when his wheel hit a pothole and he crashed, Etixx-QuickStep manager Patrick Lefevere said, according to Le Soir. Since my rider felt dazed, it was immediately decided to bring him to hospital for further tests. I hope that his injuries wont be serious. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
