European Championships to be moved from Nice due to security concerns
August 06, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
The European Cycling Union (UEC) has decided to move the 2016 European Championships in light of security concerns following the terrorist attacks in Nice last month. The UEC still holds hope of finding a new location for the event, which is due to take place from 14-18 September. Given that it was an event that would have required a large police presence and that we have not received any guarantees about their deployment, the cycling championships that Nice was due to hold in France's name are cancelled," Nice mayor Philippe Pradal said on Friday, according to the BBC. Nice is still reeling from the terrorist attack that hit the heart of the city on Bastille Day. A man claiming allegiance to the terrorist group IS drove a truck into crowds celebrating the French national day on the Promenade des Anglais, killing 85 and injuring hundreds more. The European Championships were due to take place on a route using several sections familiar to the final stage of Paris-Nice. The UEC backed up the decision by the Nice mayor to cancel the event.ADVERTISEMENT This decision is justified on the grounds of safety as this event required a huge security presence which cannot be guaranteed because the significant constraints, the UEC wrote in a statement. We would like to assure you that the Union Europenne de Cyclisme is already looking for an alternative venue on the dates already scheduled. The Union Europenne de Cyclisme would like to express its full solidarity with the city of Nice at this difficult time as well as with the victims families.

USA Cycling to revisit Olympic Games selection procedures after triple arbitrations
August 05, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
In the run-up to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, USA Cycling has had to defend itself in three separate legal cases against its selection process, leading new CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall to set the goal of reviewing the selection procedures beginning the day after this year's Games. The selection committee choose three riders to fill the team - only Megan Guarnier won an automatic bid with her bronze medal in the world championships. Kristin Armstrong and Evelyn Stevens were chosen to fill the time trial spots, and Carmen Small and Amber Neben, were not. Climber MaraAbbott completed the team. Bouchard-Hall fought back against public perception of bias in the selection of two-time Olympic gold medalist Armstrong over Small, who dominated in the national championships on a similar course and in similar conditions. Small and Neben fought the selection in arbitration and lost.ADVERTISEMENT Jim Miller, USA Cycling's athletics director, also happens to be Armstrong's personal coach. Miller developed the selection criteria, assembled the selection committee, and came up with the method for aggregating rider data and presenting it to the committee. He declared the conflict of interest, and left it to the women's road coach, Jack Seehafer, to make the actual data and recommendations to the selection committee. Bouchard-Hall said he was confident that there was no opportunity for bias to be introduced in the process, but wants to avoid having this sort of negative public perception in the future. "We're certainly going to revisit that as part of the next process. When we have those conflicts of interest it certainly opens us up to accusations of bias and unfairness. Even if in reality we can separate ourselves from those, the perception is a real problem. We have a legacy of challenges that lead to that," Bouchard-Hall said.

Mara Abbott: Seizing the opportunity at Rio Olympic Games
August 05, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
Mara Abbott is revelling in the chance to experience her first Olympic Games, but she is not taking her selection for the women's road race for granted after recently winning an arbitration launched against her spot on the four-woman team by compatriot Coryn Rivera. The American climbing phenom plans to make the most of the opportunity she's earned to do everything in her power to help Team USA win a gold medal in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday. "I've worked really hard to be at the Olympics, not because I want the experience of going and getting lots of T-shirts and meeting a lot of people," Abbott firmly stated in an interview with Cyclingnews. "If you're an athlete who is at the level of being at the Olympics, you're going to compete. There are a lot of things around it, but for me, I see it as a really important bike race." USA Cycling's Selection Committee named Abbott as one of the four women to represent Team USA for the road race. Megan Guarnier had secured an automatic spot after placing on the podium at the World Championships in Richmond last September, and the Selection Committee also chose Evelyn Stevens and Kristin Armstrong, both for the road race and the time trial.ADVERTISEMENT The selection didn't sit well with US time trial champion Carmen Small, who launched a highly publicised arbitration for one of the two time trial spots. Amber Neben joined that arbitration, contesting for a place on the team. Also, Rivera opened a separate arbitration for Abbott's spot on the team for the road race. "Coryn directly arbitrated against my Olympic spot, and I was really affected by it. I had to get a lawyer and be a witness. It wasn't widely known because a lot of the focus was on Carmen's case," said Abbott, who was competing at the Giro Rosa in early July when she was notified of the arbitration. "It was terrifying and unpleasant. It wasn't a positive experience. But that is the way the system is right now, and it was absolutely within Coryn's right to fight for a spot that she thought that she deserved."

Olympic Games: Italy replaces Russia in men's team pursuit
August 05, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
Italy has been admitted as a late replacement entry in the mens team pursuit at the Rio 2016 Olympics after Russias appeal against its exclusion was turned down on Friday morning. The decision means that Italy, who placed fourth in Marchs World Championships, will field a team that includes Filippo Ganna, the reigning individual pursuit world champion. The Russian team pursuit quartet had qualified for the Olympics as the sixth-ranked European team, but their participation was cast into doubt following the response to last months publication of the McLaren Report into allegations of state-sponsored doping in the country. Sergey Shilov, who tested positive for carphedon in 2009, was ruled out of the Games by a new measure barring all Russian athletes who had previously served doping bans, while Kirill Sveshnikov, Dmitry Sokolov and Dmitry Strakhov were implicated in the McLaren report. This left Viktor Manakov as the only member of the team pursuit squad who had not been potentially barred.ADVERTISEMENT Sveshnikov, Sokolov and Strakhov appealed their exclusion to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which has been holding hearings in Rio this week, but on Friday morning it was confirmed that they had lost their case against the UCI and IOC. Elia Viviani, who was part of Italys team pursuit squad at the London Worlds, is already in Rio to participate in the omnium, with Filippo Ganna, Liam Bertazzo, Simone Consonni, and Francesco Lamon set to fly to Brazil this weekend to join him. The qualifying round of the mens team pursuit takes place next Thursday. Ganna, Consonni and Lamon, who all ride for the Colpack Continental squad, were part of the Italian squad that recently set a new national record of 3:56.393 at the European Under-23 Track Championships.

Geoghegan Hart targeting GC result at Tour of Utah
August 03, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
British U23 road champion Tao Geoghegan Hart (Axeon Hagens Berman) is in Utah this week to shoot for a top general classification result in his third attempt at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. Geoghegan Hart finished 39th overall during his first race in 2014, but then jumped to 13th last year in the race that bills itself as America's toughest. "It's always different coming back to racing for the first time in a little while," he told Cyclingnews before the stage 2 start in Escalante. "I haven't raced since nationals. I had a little break after that and then built back up. You have different sensations and then throw altitude into the mix and you can't really predict how that goes."ADVERTISEMENT Things have gone well so far for Geoghegan Hart's Axeon team this week, with teammate Colin Joyce finishing second during the opening stage and Logan Owen coming in fifth. It was a good start for the team and a nice way to set the tone for the rest of the week. "I think on paper it doesn't always look amazing to get second and fifth on the stage, but there weren't really any big trains or anything in the finish and it was quite chaotic and big swarms and stuff," he said. "So having two guys going for the sprint actually meant that we covered our bases a little bit more than someone getting boxed in. "I was just trying to get Colin and Logan get up there as best as possible, working with both of them to try and get into position. It was a good start and we'll try and build on it throughout the week." You can read more at More...
Bookwalter hoping to surprise in Olympic debut
August 03, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
As one of only two Americans to make the men's road team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brent Bookwalter knows the odds are stacked against him for a podium spot, but the first-time Olympian is ready to give his best and hope he can pull off something special. "The goal for the road race is to simply do the absolute best result that I can. I don't want to limit myself in any way," Bookwalter said. "I think the Olympic field and the Olympic event has sometimes shown it can produce some surprise results and surprise medallists, especially with the teams that are there, the team size and racing on a course that has rarely ever been raced on. I am feeling ambitious and motivated to be the best Brent Bookwalter there is and getting the most out of myself." At 32, Bookwalter is in his ninth season with the BMC Racing Team, and has eight Grand Tours behind him, but none of that has jaded the experience of being a first-time Olympian.ADVERTISEMENT "It is a little bit surreal to be going to the Olympics because the Olympics are one of these ionic events in my mind. From my memory of my childhood, I have watched and have been passionate about them. Now, to realize that I am going and I am going to be part of that center stage and taking part in the racing, is really inspiring and motivating and encouraging. I am trying to let that not detract from my preparation and stay confident in my own preparation. That is something I know has worked for me and that I have developed over the past 10 years in racing professionally." Because the United States lacked WorldTour points, the country only earned two places for the Olympic Games men's road events this year. Bookwalter and Taylor Phinney will compete in both the road race and time trial. Having only two will be a disadvantage in the road race against powerful teams like those from Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Australia, or Colombia that have five riders, but Bookwalter doesn't think a result is impossible. "I think having one teammate " Taylor " does affect the way we will race a little bit, as a pro and a con. The downside is that we don't have the numbers to play. We don't have the numbers to support a leader as heavily as we could with five. But the good thing is we can kind of sit back and key off the other teams a little bit. Hopefully, we can lurk in the shadows a little bit and then use our experience to pick the right moments and be a factor at the end of the race. You can read more at More...

UCI expands WorldTour to 37 events
August 02, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
The UCI announced an expanded WorldTour calendar for 2017, with 10 new events including the Amgen Tour of California, Tour of Qatar, Abu Dhabi Tour and Tour of Turkey, and one-day races Dwars door Vlaanderen, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, Prudential RideLondon, Eschborn-Frankfurt and Strade Bianche. The UCI was able to include three-year licences to every WorldTour event after long and contentious negotiations with the Tour de France organisers ASO, but next year will see a reduction in WorldTour teams to 17, with further reductions to 16 for 2019 and beyond. The publication of this new calendar is an important step in the development of mens professional road cycling," UCI President Brian Cookson said. "Alongside the prestigious events which have already proven their worth, the UCI WorldTour is enriched by the addition of some truly fantastic races across the globe. Im delighted to see this development.ADVERTISEMENT The season begins again with the Tour Down Under from January 17-22, followed by the Great Ocean Road Race on January 29 before heading to its newest races in Qatar and Dubai. The Omloop Het Nieuwsblad overlaps with Dubai, however, as the UCI continues to have conflicting WorldTour events rather than separate them further on the calendar. Strade Bianche comes on March 4, one day before the start of Paris Nice (March 5-12), which still overlaps with Tirreno-Adriatico (March 8-14).
