Cancellara to resume competition at Vuelta a Espaa
August 05, 2015 (17:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) will return to competitive action at the Vuelta a Espaa, a little over six weeks on from fracturing two vertebrae in his lower back following his crash on stage 3 of the Tour de France while wearing the yellow jersey of race leader. It was Cancellaras second time sustaining such injuries this season, as a crash at E3 Harelbeke in late March ended his Classics campaign prematurely. On that occasion, Cancellara waited fully two months before resuming competition, but with the World Championships in Richmond in mind, he was eager to return to the peloton quickly. The initial plan was to return to racing at the Eneco Tour next week, Cancellara said in a statement released by his Trek Factory Racing team. But its too early. I'm still experiencing some pain when Im doing high intensity, even though I have been training since more than a week with training rides of up to four hours. Id love to race already, but my body is just not ready yet.ADVERTISEMENT The Vuelta a Espaa gets underway in Marbella on August 22. The Spanish race has been a staple of Cancellaras programme in recent seasons as part of his build-up to the World Championships. He has missed out on the event just once since 2009 " when he was recovering from injury in 2012 " and will use the race to prepare for this years Worlds. Ill be at the start of the Vuelta for the seventh time now. Its a race that I like: lots of kilometers, hard racing, good roads and fans that appreciate our sport, Cancellara said. Above all I want to get back into the habit of racing and help our leaders, starting with the team time trial in Marbella. I want to be as good as I can at the Worlds. Ill suffer to get through the first week, but I need competition." With his retirement provisionally pencilled in for the end of next season, Cancellara could have just two opportunities left to add the Worlds road race to his palmars. Four times a world champion in the time trial, he eschewed the event in Ponferrada a year ago in order to focus fully on the road race, but his challenge was compromised by cramps on the final lap.

Cancellara's path to Worlds uncertain after Tour de France crash
July 07, 2015 (20:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Fabian Cancellara's press conference after taking the yellow jersey in Zeeland on Sunday evening ran on so long that one wondered if he sensed it might be the final time in his career that he found himself in such a position at the Tour de France. In the build-up to the race, Cancellara had neither confirmed nor denied speculation that this would prove to be his last appearance at the Tour, given that his retirement is " very provisionally, mind " pencilled in for when his current contract expires at the end of 2016. Cancellara's 29th day in yellow on Monday " a record for riders who have never won the Tour overall " ended, as anticipated, with him ceding the lead atop the Mur de Huy, but also, rather more unexpectedly, with his retirement from the race. Among the fallers in the mass crash with 60 kilometres to go that caused the stage to be neutralised temporarily, Cancellara managed to remount and finish, but x-rays afterwards showed that he had suffered transverse process fractures of two vertebrae his lower back.ADVERTISEMENT Though a non-starter on Tuesday's stage to Cambrai, Cancellara was on hand at the start in Seraing to lend moral support to his Trek teammates as they faced into the pav without him, and to speak to the press before taking his leave from Planet Tour. "I'm feeling sad and I have a lot of pain, even more than yesterday," Cancellara told reporters. "I could kind of sleep but when I woke up I felt like a truck was running over me, I have pain everywhere. "I leave the Tour and lose the yellow jersey, and I couldn't even defend it [after the crash]. The only chance I had was to finish the race and honour as best I could this jersey, out of the respect I have for it." Cancellara's injuries are remarkably similar to those suffered when a crash at E3 Harelbeke in March brought a premature halt to his Classics campaign. On that occasion, Cancellara spent almost a month off his bike and took two full months away from racing before returning to competitive action at the Tour des Fjords.

Tour de France shorts: Tony Martin remains in second overall
July 07, 2015 (14:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Tony Martin remains in second overall at the Tour de France Tony Martin (Etixx-QuickStep) will start another stage of the Tour de France in second place overall, a position he has consistently held since the opening time trial, despite the fact that the yellow jersey has changed hands three times - from Rohan Dennis (BMC) to Fabian Cancellara (Trek) and now to Chris Froome (Team Sky). Froome moved into the overall lead following his second-place performance during the stage 3 finish on the Mur de Huy, where Martin finished 26th at 40 seconds back. Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) won the stage.ADVERTISEMENT Martin is now trailing Froome by one second as the race heads into stage 4 on Tuesday. The German time trial specialist thanked his teammates for their support and also offered get well wishes to those involved in the day's crash. "Like yesterday, the team was always around me," Martin said in a team press release. "I was pretty nervous as was everyone in the peloton, as it always is in the first week at Le Tour. The team rode 100 percent today for me, especially Kwiatkowski. He was unbelievable. After everything I did for him in the past years, he gave it back in the last two days. It's amazing for me and I want to thank him as the World Champion for being such a supportive teammate the whole race. "The story of today started with the big crash. Everything was neutralized. I was a bit confused as to what was going on, if they would neutralize longer or just for a moment. I heard about the big crash, and all the riders who went down, and I was sad about it.

Tour de France: Injuries galore from stage 3 crashes
July 07, 2015 (14:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The double crashes on a fast descent in the Ardennes at the Tour de France on stage 3 left many of the riders battered, scraped and bruised on the worst possible day - right before they hit the cobbles of Northern France. So numerous were the injured that race organisers were forced to halt the stage to let the medics do their jobs. There were actually two crashes, one at kilometre 105 that took down maillot jaune Fabian Cancellara (Trek).He finished the stage, but was later diagnosed with fractured vertebrae and will not continue. Two kilometres later, Dmitrii Kozonchuk (Katusha) was in a crash with Johan Vansummeren (AG2RLa Mondiale). Kozonchuk fractured his scapula in addition to his collarbone. In all, six riders abandoned the race due to injuries sustained in the two wrecks.ADVERTISEMENT In addition to Cancellara and Kozonchuk, Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEdge) finished the stage but was confirmed to have broken his collarbone. Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) broke his shoulder and Simon Gerrans his wrist. The worst off in the crash, however, was William Bonnet (FDJ), the first rider to fall after touching wheels. Bonnet was thought to have simply had a concussion in addition to all-over road rash, but after careful examination he was also found to have a multi-fragmented fracture of his second cervical vertebrae - the so-called 'hangman's fracture'. The break will require surgery but is not life-threatening. Brave soldier award goes to Ten Dam You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Cancellara abandons Tour de France after fracturing vertebrae in high-speed crash
July 07, 2015 (14:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Trek Factory Racing's Fabian Cancellara has pulled out of the Tour de France following stage 3 in Huy, Belgium. While wearing the yellow jersey, the Swiss rider was involved in a high-speed crash with 60km to the finish line, and although he finished the stage, his team later confirmed that he has two transverse process fractures in two vertebrae bones in his lower back. "Cancellara was whisked off to the hospital for a CT scan shortly after he crossed the finish line of the crash-marred stage three at the Tour de France, and hours later the news confirmed the worst: two transverse process fractures in two vertebrae bones of the lower back," the statement read. It is the identical injury he sustained in E3 Harelbeke last March, but this time the L3 and L4 vertebrae on the right side were the culprits, not the L2 and L3 on the left side he injured in Harelbeke.ADVERTISEMENT This is incredibly disappointing for me, Cancellara said. The team was on a high with the yellow jersey and were very motivated to defend it. We have had a lot of crashes and injuries since the start of the season, and we finally had a great 24 hours but now its back to bad luck." The recovery time was lengthy last time around; in fact Cancellara had just rebounded to top form from the March crash that ended his Classics campaign. It was very hard to come back in shape after my crash in Harelbeke and getting the confidence, Cancellara added. The yellow jersey gave me a huge boost for the cobblestone stage tomorrow. I guess I have to keep the positive and look forward to the second part of the season. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Prudhomme defends decision to neutralise stage 3 of the Tour de France
July 07, 2015 (14:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme has defended the unusual step of neutralising the race following a mass crash with 58 kilometres remaining on stage three from Antwerp to the Mur de Huy, explaining that it was decided to do so as all of the following ambulances and medical cars were occupied in provided assistance to fallen riders. A statement issued by ASO said that following consultation between the race direction and the UCI commissaires, it was decided to apply 2.2.029 of the rulebook, which states: "In case of an accident or incident that could impinge upon the normal conduct of a race in general or a particular stage thereof, the Race Manager may, after obtaining the agreement of the Commissaires Panel decide to modify the course [or] temporarily to neutralise the race or stage." "There was a spectacular crash which involved more than twenty riders and at that particular moment, nobody knew how serious their injuries would prove to be. There were riders with fractured collarbones and head injuries," Prudhomme told reporters afterwards.ADVERTISEMENT "Shortly afterwards, many other riders went down, so it was 40 or so riders who were involved in total. The four ambulances and two medical cars were held up taking care of them, which meant that there was no ambulance left to look after the 120 riders in the peloton between there and the end of the race." Maillot jaune Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) was among those caught up in the crash, which forced Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEdge), Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) and William Bonnet(FDJ) out of the race altogether. Traditionally in such circumstances, the peloton itself slows to allow the race leader to regain contact, but on this occasion, it was the Tour director Prudhomme who gave the order to neutralise the race from the sunroof of the lead car. Following a period of confusion that saw Sky briefly up the pace, the peloton came to a complete halt, allowing Cancellara and the other fallers who hadn't abandoned to catch up. In years past, the Tour peloton has tended to come to a complete halt only when lodging a complaint with the race organisation, such as 1978's strike in Valence d'Agen to protest that year's lengthy transfers, or the 1998 demonstrations against police searches in the aftermath of the Festina Affair.

July 06, 2015 (14:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Fabian Cancellara's third place on stage twoof the Tour de France saw the Trek Factory Racing rider take the race leader's yellow jersey.Four bonus seconds on the line saw Cancellara jump ahead of Tony Martin (Etixx-Quick Step) after the first yellow jersey of the race,Rohan Dennis (BMC), has been caught out and distanced earlier in the stage. It is the 29th yellow jersey of Cancellara's career which extends his record of the most jerseys without ever winning the race overall. To celebrate Cancellara's yellow jersey, Trek have provided the Swiss rider with a special edition yellow Trek Domane 6 Series. Cancellara posted a photo of the bike on social media before the stage, describing it as "my warrior bike today to defend the jersey". He is hoping to limit his losses on the uphill finish on the Mur de Huy and perhaps retain the yellow jersey. ADVERTISEMENT While the majority of the peloton have made the switch to electronic shifters in recent seasons, Cancellara hasstuck with mechanical Dura-Ace. Shimano also provides pedals, whileBontrager supplies the wheels, saddle and full cockpit. Cancellara has opting for 23mmVeloflex Criterium tyres.

Tour de France: Unexpected yellow for Cancellara
July 06, 2015 (14:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After Saturdays time trial in Utrecht during the opening stage of the 2015 Tour de France there was much disappointment in the story from Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing). He missed out on the victory in a year that had been miserable so far. He also missed out on another stint in the yellow jersey which he already carried for 28 days in the past. On Sunday, things turned around unexpectedly for Spartacus in a stage that was characterized by stormy weather, causing echelons and crashes: the biotope of Fabian Cancellara. The 34-year-old Swiss rider survived all the scrimmages and sprinted along for the victory in the Zelande province. On the small working island Neeltje Jans that is part of the massive flood protecting Delta works, Cancellara managed to sneak just past Mark Cavendish(Etixx-QuickStep) and finish in third place. He earned four bonus seconds that lifted him him over Cavendish's teammate Tony Martin into the lead of the Tour de France. At the post-race press conference the talkative Swiss rider replied to each question with an answer in "Fabianese" that often spanned several minutes. Below is a brief summary. He started with the obvious. This comes as a surprise to me, Cancellara said. I woke up quite early and didnt have much in my mind after the disappointment from yesterday. I looked outside and saw that the weather was nice. When heading to the start it turned out that it would be hectic, chaos, almost like a one-day race. Thats what we talked about at the team meeting. From beautiful weather we went into a situation I didnt expect to be.ADVERTISEMENT Cancellara described how the breakaway was formed. The move put him into a situation where race leader Rohan Dennis (BMC) was no longer featuring in front, thus offering a chance to take over the yellow jersey. We went into a small city [Hellevoetsluis]. There were a couple of roundabouts. Suddenly the group gets split up and I dont even know if it was because of a crash or because they didnt go full gas through this town. I was there and thought, 'Wow, just a few guys left.' I saw Tony, I saw Dumoulin. Lets see what would happen in the end, Cancellara said, adding that he felt the effort from the time trial after every roundabout in the final 25 kilometres, receiving much support from the team car. When approaching the finish line in Neeltje Jans, it was obvious that Cancellara had to come up with something to take back time on Tony Martin, who was one second ahead of him in the general classification. Cancellara hoped the large group would split at the finish. There was a gap but those four seconds were found behind eighth-placed Martin. Bonus seconds for the top three proved to be the key. Cancellara moved along with top sprinters Mark Cavendish, Peter Sagan and eventual winner Andr Greipel. When Cavendish realized he wouldnt win he sat up, offering Cancellara the chance to take third place and the four bonus seconds. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
