Chris Froome 'feeling better' after tough Giro d'Italia stage
May 15, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The scars and grazes on his right knee from two Giro d'Italia crashes remained clearly visible as Chris Froome warmed down after stage 10. But the Briton came through a fraught stage of racing unscathed and feeling "better" than he had done earlier in the Giro d'Italia. Froome was watched by an unusually large crowd of tifosi and an unusually small number of journalists as he did his usual post-stage warm down, with the unfolding story of Esteban Chaves (Mitchelton-Scott) plummet down the GC rankings attracting the bulk of the Giro media's attention.ADVERTISEMENT After his tough first nine stages, Froome felt that the Giro's longest day had gone well for him, despite the intensity of the racing. "Better, better," he said in Italian as he dismounted from his warm-down and headed for the team bus. Speaking briefly to reporters beforehand, Froome said: "It was a very hard stage, everybody was feeling fresh and there was a lot of action at the start of the day. "But I'm pleased that I was in the front group, and finally the only guy that lost time was Esteban [Chaves]. It was a tough day, and that's racing." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Aru: What can I say, I'm only human
May 13, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The verdict was already being written up in the sala stampa as Fabio Aru descended from the summit of Gran Sasso d'Italia in a cable car, where he was doubtless hoping to avoid the crew from RAI television who had secured passage in the same cabin. "Aru, the excuses are over: Think about the Tour," read the banner headline in Tuttobici on Sunday evening, summing up the general feeling that the Italian champion's Giro d'Italia may already be run even before the race has truly begun. There had been mitigating factors behind much of the time lost by general classification contenders in the opening week of racing in Israel and Sicily, but on the sparse and exposed slopes of Gran Sasso d'Italia, there was no longer any hiding place.ADVERTISEMENT The pace-making of Aru's former squad Astana and the Mitchelton-Scott team of maglia rosa Simon Yates had already whittled down the leading group by the time the race hit the snow-banked upper reaches of the climb, and Aru was already flagging even before he lost contact with the group with a little over two kilometres to race. It will be of scant consolation that Chris Froome was distanced at more or less the same point and conceded more or less the same kind of time: for now, at least, the Sky rider is not the Briton to follow on this Giro. Aru crested the summit in 24th place on the stage, some 1:14 down on the stage winner Yates. In the overall standings, he is now 2:36 off the pace in 15th place. "It didn't go very well," Aru said with considerable understatement after his cable car had reached its terminus in the village of Assergi at the base of the climb. "Today was obviously a negative day for me. My legs weren't turning over well, otherwise, I wouldn't have been dropped. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Giro d'Italia: Pinot continues strong showing in first week
May 13, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) could well be forgiven for any uncertainty over whether his glass is half full or half empty as the Giro d'Italia reaches its second rest day. After a solid but unremarkable opening time trial performance, the French champion has ridden a very strong first week, and as a result, he remains fourth overall on GC, 45 seconds down. But as Pinot pointed out after finishing second on the Gran Sasso, beaten in an uphill sprint by Giro d'Italia leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott): "That's my third podium stage finish this week without winning, and I'd love a stage win. But it was very windy and finally, it came down to a sprint." Third on Mount Etna, second on the Mercogliano climb and second again on the Gran Sasso, Pinot has been within sight of a repeat of his 2017 Giro stage win in Asiago ever since the race returned to Italy last Monday.ADVERTISEMENT "My aim of the podium remains intact, and that's great," Pinot told reporters after another frustrating near miss as he stood at the end of the fenced-off finishing area, a scarf already tucked into his jersey to keep him warm in the icy wind. "Froome? I'm more worried about myself. But it's evidently better to be ahead of him than behind. And the legs are there, and I can take encouragement from that." As the stage to Gran Sasso reached the decisive last two kilometres, Pinot moved into the leading position on the small group of favourites. Then when Domenico Pozzovivo (Bahrain-Merida) launched a blistering attack in the last 600 metres, the Frenchman was there alongside Richard Carapaz (Movistar), Yates and Esteban Chaves. In the last dash for the line, he ran Yates the closest, but the Briton was unstoppable. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Debris flow damage forces Tour of California to tweak Gibraltar stage
May 08, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Amgen Tour of California organisers today confirmed that they had to make changes to the Queen stage on the second day of the race because of road damage remaining from the deadly debris flows that claimed 21 lives in Montecito last January. The change comes toward the end of the 155km second stage that starts in Ventura and finishes near the top of Gibraltar Road just outside of Santa Barbara. Approaching Montecito from the southeast, the race will skip the original route on Highway 192 that passed through some of the affected hillside residential neighborhoods, choosing instead to take a road through the centre of Montecito near Highway 1 and meeting up with the original route on the other side of town. The area suffered two major natural disasters last winter. In December, the largest wildfire on record in Southern California swept through Ventura County where the race starts. In January, heavy rains battered the damaged landscape, causing massive mudslides in Montecito that washed away homes and damaged roadways in a deadly wake of destruction.ADVERTISEMENT "Once we saw the fire come through the whole route we knew we had a lot of work to do," said Eric Smith, the Tour of California's course director. Smith and his crew immediately drove the affected roads to check for any damage. Initially, everything on the route was OK. Then the rains came. "Once that happened we were checking with the county and checking with Caltrans and found all the damage and the roads that were closed," Smith said. "We quickly made an assessment that they wouldn't be reopening that road [Highway 192] until well after the race." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
