John Degenkolb becomes ambassador for Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix
October 23, 2018 (05:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
John Degenkolb has become the first official ambassador for Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix, the group of volunteers who maintain the cobblestones that characterise the Paris-Roubaix race each spring. The German won the race, also known as the Hell of the North, in 2014, and also won the cobbled stage of this year's Tour de France, which went over several sectors of cobblestones, or pav. Keen to give something back, he has teamed with Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix (the friends of Paris-Roubaix) , a group that aims to protect the Paris-Roubaix parcours, which is made up of nearly 30 sectors of narrow cobbled roads - mostly old farm tracks that zig-zag across the north east of France in an area that was heavily affected by the First World War. While they add cobblestones to plug holes and damage inflicted by the weather in the lead-up to the race each spring, they are committed to maintaining the hellish nature of the pav, resisting any moves from local authorities to resurface the roads.ADVERTISEMENT Degenkolb will make financial contributions to the not-for-profit organisation, as well as donating memorabilia to their museum and making appearances with the group when he's in the area. "Cycling. A modern sport in technical times. Yes. That's one part of the cycling business. On the other side, you have the old races, classics, history. Legendary routes and names like Le Tour de France or Paris-Roubaix. Goosebumps for all cycling fans and as well for me. These legendary races. These holy grounds. The history and heroic stories, you can smell that on every kilometre," Degenkolb wrote in a message attached to Monday's announcement. "For me, it was the classics that fascinated me immediately. I will never ever forget sitting at home on our couch with my dad and following these races... I was infected with the 'virus'. That's what I wanted to do as well. I wanted to become a pro cyclist and do these epic courses. l wanted to be part of that history. These memories still motivate and push me till today and so I didnt need to think one single second as I received the request to become the first pro the official ambassador of 'Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix' - the non-profit association that keeps and protects Paris-Roubaix course as it always was.

Greipel to debut with Fortuneo-Samsic at Tropicale Amissa Bongo
October 23, 2018 (05:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Andre Greipel will make his 2019 debut at the Tropicale Amissa Bongo stage race in Gabon, Africa, as he begins a new chapter of his career with French Professional Continental team Fortuneo-Samsic. Greipel has often kicked his seasons off at the Tour Down Under in Australia, where he has won 18 stages and the overall classification in 2008 and 2010. However, his painful divorce from Lotto Soudal and his step-down to Professional Continental level means the 36-year-old German will face new challenges and new races.ADVERTISEMENT The 2019 Tropicale Amissa Bongo will be held between January 21-27, with the opening stage in Bongoville, in the west of the African country, with other stages in the north and the seventh and final stage in the capital Libreville. Race organisers also confirmed that the French teams Direct Energie and Vital Concept-B&B Hotels will also ride the 2019 edition of the Tropicale Amissa Bongo. 10 African teams will complete the start list. The 2018 edition of the race was won by Rwanda'sJoseph Areruya, who rides for theMarseille Provence KTM Delko team. Greipels long spell at Lotto Soudal ended after bitter contract negotiations with then team manager Paul De Geyter, who has since been replaced by John John Leglangue, with Australias Caleb Ewan replacing Greipel as the teams lead sprinter.

WorldTour awards handed out at 2018 UCI Cycling Gala - Gallery
October 23, 2018 (05:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The curtain came down on the 2018 road season with the Tour of Guangxi on Sunday, and afterwards the riders - men and women - swapped lycra for tuxedos for the fourth edition of the end-of-season UCI Cycling Gala. First held in Abu Dhabi in 2015, the event moved to China last year with the creation of the Tour of Guangxi as the final event on the WorldTour calendar.The ceremony saw a number of awards handed out, for winners of the various classifications of the men's and women's WorldTour and also for all the recently crowned world champions from the Innsbruck Worlds. While the riders who'd competed in the Tour of Guangxi were all present, few others made the trip to China, meaning many awards had to be accepted by teammates on behalf of the real winners.ADVERTISEMENT Neither Simon Yates nor Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) - the 2018 WorldTour champions - were there in person, so Matteo Trentin and Gracie Elvin collected their respective awards. New world champion and second-placed finisher in the WorldTour standings, Alejandro Valverde, was similarly absent, as was third-placed Peter Sagan. The men's WorldTour teams classification was one of the few awards to be collected in person, with Philippe Gilbert leading Quick-Step Floors onto the stage to cap a season that has produced an astonishing 73 victories. The evening also saw entertainment from Chinese singers and dancers, with Rigoberto Uran joining in, plus an address from UCI President David Lappartient. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Italy's Filippo Ganna joins Team Sky for 2019
October 19, 2018 (12:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Team Sky have confirmed that Italy's Filippo Ganna will be part of the British WorldTour team for 2019, boosting their squad for the cobbled Classics and time trials. 22-year-old Ganna has ridden for UAE Team Emirates for the last two seasons. He won the under 23 Paris-Roubaix in 2016 and won the Individual Pursuit world title on the track in 2016 and 2018. He recently finished second to Gianni Moscon in the Italian national time trial championships and is currently competing with Italy in the track World Cup in Paris.ADVERTISEMENT "Its a dream to sign for Team Sky. Its a very impressive team and everyone in cycling is used to seeing them winning the big races," Ganna said. "I hope I can continue to develop and improve on my first two years on the road. Im excited to meet up with the team for the first training camp and to start to work together. The team is really impressive in how they approach time trials and team time trials and that is an area I feel I can develop, in addition to the one-day races and one-week stage races going forward. "In 2018 I started to experience the Classics races as a pro for the first time and that is another area I would like to learn and focus on, to one day be able to compete at the front of those races." Ganna is Team Skys second confirmed signing for 2019 after Jhonatan Narvaez's arrival from Quick-Step Floors was announced on Thursday. Team Sky are also expected to sign Colombian climber Ivan Sosa but his move has been delayed by a contractual dispute between his former and current agents. Irelands Eddie Dunbar joined Team Sky in September after the collapse of the Aqua Blue Sport team. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Il Lombardia has brought down the curtain on the long 2018 European season, withThibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) riding into the history books with panache on Saturday.

Bernal shows flash of Classics potential at Il Lombardia
October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Egan Bernal (Team Sky) confirmed his huge potential yet again at Il Lombardia with a brilliant move across to the break on the descent or the Sormano. However, the difficulties of the final 50km of racing showed that not even the most promising talent in the peloton can compete for victory after two months out of action due to injury. Bernal crashed hard at the Clasica San Sebastian in early August and needed nose and mouth surgery. He made a comeback at the Giro dellEmilia last Saturday but was not expected to have an impact at the far tougher Il Lombardia. But when team leader Gianni Moscon suffered a puncture on the descent of the Colma di Sormano, Bernal stepped up and dived down the descent and across to Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo), Nibali and Pinot. It would be the winning move of the race, but Bernal eventually paid the price for his solo effort and was distanced on the lower slopes of the Civiglio climb. He finished 12th, 1:31 behind Pinot but only one place behind Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and ahead of Michael Woods (EF Education First-Drapac).ADVERTISEMENT He had the courage to take on the race but just not the legs to finish it off. Im happy because I went two months without racing and I only began racing again one week ago, Bernal said at the finish area before heading to the Team Sky for a final post-race shower of the season. "I wanted to do a good result here and I finished 12th. Thats not great, but I need to be happy as its normal that I needed time to recover after the crash. Now Im happy and motivated for next season. On the second part of the Muro di Sormano, the race kicked off," he said. "I was suffering and didnt really have the legs. I focused on getting across to the first group on the descent because I knew on the last climb I wouldnt be with them. So I preferred to make a fast descent, but without taking risks. I was always under control. I was able to re-join the leaders, which was really nice. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Plaza extends with Israel Cycling Academy
October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Ruben Plaza has signed on for another year withIsrael Cycling Academy. The 38-year-old Spaniard announced his decision Friday with a presentation on Facebook Live. Plaza joined the team this season after three seasons with the Australian Orica WorldTour teams. "When I signed with ICA for the 2018 season, I was really thinking that this is going to be my final year as a pro, but as the season progressed I realized that I am still very much motivated," Plaza said in a statement released by the team. "The fantastic experience being a leader and a veteran in a young team, being part of a project that is changing Cycling in Israel - has given new meaning to what I do on the bike," he said. "Then came the historic and unforgettable Giro D'italia and the moments I will never ever forget when all the country united behind the team."ADVERTISEMENT Plaza had a resurgence of sorts with the Israeli-registered team this year, taking his first win in three years as he soloed to a stage win and overall victory at theVuelta a Castilla y Leon in April. Plaza made the roster for the team's Giro d'Italia squad and the historic start in Jerusalem, and he nearly scored a stage win when he was second toMaximilian Schachmann (Quick-Step Floors) on stage 18 to Prato Nevoso. "I was close, but close is not enough," Plaza said. "I wanted to give myself and the team a dream win, and this mission is still unfulfilled. When the team came to me with the offer to continue for another year, I asked myself if I can still deliver with ability and motivation, and the answer was, 'Yes, I can.' So I see it as almost another chance to leave a mark and continue the journey with this unique team." Plaza finished 10 seconds behind the German on that Giro stage as the day-long breakaway disintegrated on the final climb, just missing out on his goal to win a stage in each Grand Tour after taking wins at the Vuelta a Espana in 2015 and 2005, and in the Tour de France in 2015. Team co-owner Sylvan Adams hinted that Plaza will get a chance at his Giro win again next year. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Pinot: Il Lombardia reflects who I am as rider
October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) often seems to be racing against himself, against his demons and against his own weaknesses and tactical errors. But his victory at Il Lombardiaand the way he won the final Monument of the season swept away all Pinots doubts, rewarding his panache, aggression and desire to win. I have a tattoo that says 'Solo la vittoria e bella', and this is the most beautiful victory for me, Pinot explained as he tried to understand what he had achieved by winning Il Lombardia. Il Lombardia is the most beautiful race of all for me. Its a magnifique race. I think Il Lombardia reflects who I am as rider. Its my favourite race, and to win it alone after a duel with [Vincenzo] Nibali is incredible. I think it was good to watch as it was to ride.ADVERTISEMENT I showed what I can do today. We have live in the moment, and I believe that everything that has happened so far in my life has lead me to win Il Lombardia. Pinot knew it was the right moment to attack when he saw Nibali go after Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo) on the final slopes of the Colma di Sormano. There were still almost 50km left to race, but he followed his instinct. I wanted to do something on the Sormano, and when Nibali attacked I said, Bingo! I knew it was a good attack, Pinot explained.

Valverde ends season with 11th in Il Lombardia
October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) closed out his season with 11th place at Il Lombardia on Saturday, sticking with the best until the final attacks fromPrimo Rogli (LottoNL-Jumbo), Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) relegated him to the role of chaser. The reigning world champion finished 1:31 down on winner Pinot in a five-man group that also included Egan Bernal (Team Sky), Michael Woods (EF Education First-Drapac),Sbastien Reichenbach (Groupama-FDJ) and Mikel Nieve (Mitchelton-Scott). I felt the tiredness of this long season a bit today," Valverde said in a post on his team's website. "I didnt really feel bad and was able to stay close to the top contenders all day, struggling but fighting into those final climbs. However, youve got to be honest: there were some of the best in the world in this race, and they might have come to this race in better condition."ADVERTISEMENT Valverde was in the much-reduced peloton when Primo Rogli (LottoNL-Jumbo) attacked at the top of theSormano climb and blew the race apart.Toward the top, Nibali and Thibaut Pinot jumped out of the group, eventually catching Rogli and being joined by Bernal as well. Pinot eventually attacked Nibali with 14km to go and held off the defending champion for the win. Valverde simply lacked the horsepower to go with the winning moves, but in a season that has seen him take 14 wins, topped off with the world championship in last month in Austria, the 39-year-old Spaniard said he was not disappointed with his Lombardia result. "Disappointed about not winning? Not at all " not if you consider how Ive fared this season," Valverde said. "Id be sad if I wasnt able to stay on the bike and had to DNF, but I had on my mind this was one of todays likely scenarios. I can only be satisfied about my 2018 season and this rainbow jersey on my chest. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
