Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan to ride Vuelta a San Juan
November 07, 2018 (12:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan will be headline names at the 2019 Vuelta a San Juan, it has been confirmed. It will be the first time that the pair have ridden the South American race, having previously ridden the now-defunct Tour de San Luis. "We are happy to confirm it, San Juan sports minister Jorge Chica told Argentinian publication Diario de Cuyo. "The talks have been going on for some months and today, finally, we can confirm that Sagan will be here, giving more prestige to our Vuelta. They are figures that will give [the race] an extraordinary level."ADVERTISEMENT Last month, Sagan told Cyclingnews that he intended on riding the South American race for the first time. He had already been confirmed to start the opening round of the WorldTour Tour Down Under, which he has ridden the past two years. Sagan has previously ridden the Tour de San Luis, most recently in 2016 [the final edition of the race -ed], but it and the Vuelta a San Juan have traditionally clashed with the Tour Down Under. However, there will be no such issues for the Slovakian next year with San Juan set to start a few days later. While the Tour Down Under will take place between January 15 to 20, the Vuelta a San Juan is slated for January 27 to February 3. Cavendish last started his season in South America in 2015, where he won the final stage of the Tour de San Luis. In recent years, the Manxman has opted to begin his year at the Dubai Tour and this will also be the first time in two years that he has begun racing in January.

Mark Cavendish lead-out man Mark Renshaw has extended his contract with Dimension Data, taking him through 2019 with the South African team that benefits the Qhubeka charity. Im looking forward to racing my 16th season professionally with Dimension Data for Qhubeka in 2019," the 35-year-old Australian said in a statement released by the team. "This will be my fourth season with the team where we have had some great success over the past three years. Im excited to meet all my current teammates and all the new riders that will join us next season at our training camp in Cape Town next month," he said.ADVERTISEMENT Renshaw joined the team in 2016, following Cavendish from Etixx-QuickStep. Cavendish had been rumoured to be considering a move away from the South African team after three years, and he and his representatives had talked to a number of teams over the past few months. Dimension Data added Italian sprinter Giaccomo Nizzolo to the 2019 roster in September, adding more fuel to the transfer rumours.However,La Gazzetta dello Sport reported late last week that the British sprinter had reached an agreement with Dimension Data to add another year to his contract. Now Renshaw is in the fold again as well. Working with our new sprinter Giacomo Nizzolo next season as well seeing Ryan Gibbons continue to develop will be very exciting," Renshaw said. "I'm looking forward to helping him and our other leaders in the sprint finals next season in my favourite position of lead-out rider. I will be sharing all my years of experience on the road to bring the team our best results." " Mark Renshaw (@Mark_Renshaw) October 11, 2018 You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Mark Cavendish to miss Arctic Race of Norway
August 14, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Dimension Data will head to the Arctic Race of Norway without sprinter Mark Cavendish, despite the Manxman being announced as a headliner by the race organisation last week.

Dimension Data confirmed that Cavendish will skip Norway but gave no further details. "An update on Mark's return to racing will be given in due course," the team announced.ADVERTISEMENT Cavendish finished 12th in the Prudential RideLondon after being eliminated from the Tour de France on stage 11, missing the time cut on a brutal mountain stage along with teammate Mark Renshaw and Katusha-Alpecin's Marcel Kittel. Bernard Eisel will replace Cavendish, continuing his return from a subdural hematoma, having raced the Tour de Pologne last week. He is joined by Mekseb Debesay, Jacques Janse van Rensburg and two trainees Kent Main and Connor Swift.

Mark Cavendish to ride Arctic Race of Norway
August 10, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish will make his debut at the Arctic Race of Norway later this month, the organisers have announced. Cavendish will be joined by climber Mekseb Debesay and stagiaire, and British national champion, Connor Swift, with the rest of the DimensionData team for the race yet to be announced. Cavendish is the biggest confirmed name in the sprint field and is set to go up against Christophe Laporte (Cofidis), Andrea Pasqualon (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) and Sondre Holst Enger (Israel Cycling Academy). The Arctic Race of Norway will be only the second race back for Cavendish after he missed the time cut on stage 11 of the Tour de France. Cavendish returned to racing at the RideLondon-Surrey Classic at the end of last month, where he finished 12th. He was due to compete in the road race at the European Championships this weekend but was advised by doctors to rest.ADVERTISEMENT The 2018 season has been a particularly challenging one for Cavendish after a litany of early-season crashes. It started well with a stage win at the Dubai Tour, but he was forced to abandon the Abu Dhabi Tour on stage 1 when a faulty brake sensor caused one of the race vehicles to slow into the bunch during the neutral zone and sparking a crash. Cavendish was subsequently diagnosed with a concussion, though he was able to return to compete at Tirreno-Adriatico a few weeks later. However, he crashed heavily during the opening team time trial when he hit a pothole, leaving him with a broken rib. He broke a second rib in a huge crash at his next race, Milan-San Remo. The Manxman collided with a piece of road furniture with under 10 kilometres remaining and was dramatically catapulted from his bike. Following his third successive crash, Cavendish took a two-month break from racing before making his comeback at the Tour de Yorkshire at the start of May. He rode the Tour of California, Tour of Slovenia, Adriatica Ionica Race and the national championships ahead of the Tour de France. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Paris-Roubaix: Dimension Data underdogs in search of luck
April 07, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Ravaged by injuries to several high-profile riders, and without a clear favourite, Dimension Data head into Paris-Roubaix hoping that fortune will be on their side. The team are missing Mark Cavendish, Bernhard Eisel, and Scott Thwaites through injury, while perennial Classics hope, Edvald Boasson Hagen, is still searching for his best from having had his spleen removed during the off-season. The Norwegian claimed fourth in Dwars door Vlaanderen before finishing 19th at the Tour of Flanders, and having finished fifth in Paris-Roubaix two seasons ago, will be looking for a strong performance. Julian Vermote dislocated his shoulder in the Tour of Flanders but is scheduled to race this Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT For directeur sportif, Rolf Aldag, the weather for Paris-Roubaix will be a significant factor. Although rain is not scheduled for Sunday the recent wet weather has left several sectors of cobbles covered in thick mud. Im not a weatherman so I cant predict what it will be like on race day but as far as our recon was concerned on Thursday, Ive never seen conditions like that before, Aldag said. Aldag was one of the few riders to race and finish the last truly wet Paris-Roubaix back in 2002, finishing 25th on a day that saw less than 45 riders make it to the velodrome.

Mark Cavendish aiming to return at Tour of California after Milan-San Remo crash
April 01, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) is targeting a return to action at the Tour of California following his heavy crash in the finale of Milan-San Remo last month. The Manxman has endured an ill-starred beginning to the 2018 season, as crashes forced him out of the Abu Dhabi Tour, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo. He sustained an ankle injury and a fractured rib in the most recent incident after flipping over some traffic furniture at speed. Cavendish will hope to kick-start his build-up to the Tour de France by returning to the peloton at the Tour of California, which takes place from May 13-19. He will then seek to add to his running tally of 30 stage victories at the Tour de France.ADVERTISEMENT Id like at least to make California. Thats another six weeks away, so I should be all right, Cavendish told the Observer. I dont know how my fitness will be but I should be all right. At least if I can come back by then I should be all right for the Tour. Cavendish told the Observer that he has not yet resumed training on the road, but has been riding on the turbo trainer for up to an hour. He spent part of the last week in Belgium receiving treatment and he was among the former Quick-Step riders who attended a dinner to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the companys involvement in professional cycling on Friday evening. Im pretty happy to be back on the turbo trainer after a crash like that. Ive been riding through the pain to do it, said Cavendish, who confirmed that he will not compete in this months Commonwealth Games, his second time in succession to miss the event through injury.

Cavendish finished second in 2016 and 2017, previously partnered with Bradley Wiggins and Peter Kennaugh.

Thwaites undergoes back surgery after fracturing vertebrae
March 22, 2018 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Dimension Data rider Scott Thwaites has suffered several fractures to his vertebral column following a training crash. In a statement released on the Dimension Data website, the team said that Thwaites had undergone successful surgery to stabilise the fractures on Tuesday night. He is in a stable condition and remains in hospital but is expected to be released in the coming days. The team gave no information as to the circumstances of the crash. Thwaites had recently competed at Milan-San Remo and was expected to be an important part of the teams Classics line-up.ADVERTISEMENT Thwaites injury is another blow for Dimension Data, who have several riders out of action due to injury. Team leader Mark Cavendish broke a rib in a horrific crash during last weekends Milan-San Remo. The Manxman had already broken a rib when he crashed at speed during the opening team time trial at Tirreno-Adriatico. He also suffered concussion following a crash at the Abu Dhabi Tour when the race directors car braked suddenly ahead of the peloton. Bernhard Eisel is also out of competition at the moment after breaking his wrist and sustaining facial injuries in a crash at Tirreno-Adriatico. Reinardt Janse van Rensburg has not yet made his racing debut in 2018 following groin surgery at the end of last year. Although, the team hopes that he can return to competitive action next month. Mekseb Debesay took a heavy fall at the Tour de Langkawi earlier this week and further tests revealed that he had fractured his pelvis. Illness has also taken its toll with Tom-Jelte Slagter pulling out of Paris-Nice at the start of the month due to sickness. Mark Renshaw had to drop out of Tirreno-Adriatico due to sinusitis but returned to action at Milan-San Remo. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Quick-Step come away empty-handed from Milan-San Remo
March 18, 2018 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
In the discussion and prognostication in the week leading up to Milan-San Remo, when it came to Quick-Step Floors all the talk, as always, was of 'options' or 'cards to play'. As it was, they came away from the first Monument of the season with nothing to show for their superior strength in depth, with Elia Viviani their highest finisher in 19th. Viviani was one of three nominal leaders in a squad that also included last year's third placed Julian Alaphilippe and two-time podium finisher Philippe Gilbert. While Viviani would wait for a bunch sprint on the Via Roma, Gilbert and Alaphilippe could go on the attack on the Cipressa or Poggio climbs. Even without Fernando Gaviria, fifth last year but ruled out this time with a broken hand, they seemed to have all bases covered.ADVERTISEMENT Gilbert, however, was out of the running before the Poggio had begun after being held up by Mark Cavendish's heavy crash. Even before that, hopes of emulating last year's Tour of Flanders victory with a long-range attack had been scuppered by the headwind blowing up the Ligurian coast. "When Cavendish crashed, I was just behind him and managed to somehow squeeze and make it through, but lost some positions and couldn't return to the front, as the bunch was going full gas," Gilbert said. "Before the race, I thought about trying something from afar, but with the strong headwind on the Cipressa it was impossible, there really wasn't any opportunity to attack. I'll take from this race the fact that I felt good, despite the rain and the cold temperatures, and look now with optimism to my next races." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Cavendish suffers brutal crash in Milan-San Remo
March 17, 2018 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
MarkCavendish suffered another serious crash in Milan-San Remo, his third bad fall of the young 2018 season.The Dimension Data rider was relatively well positioned with just under 10km to go near the foot of the Poggio, but as the peloton parted at a traffic divider, Cavendish ran out of room to avoid it and took a direct impact. The waist-high bollard launched Cavendish through the air, and he somersaulted, landing heavily on his back. Cavendish started the season off with a stage win in the Dubai Tour, but crashed on the first stage of the AbuDhabiTour, suffering a concussion and whiplash when the race's lead vehicle suddenly slowed when its automatic braking system engaged, leading to the chain-reaction crash.ADVERTISEMENT He returned for Tirreno-Adriatico, but crashed again in the opening team time trial and was out of the race, having missed the time cut. He suffered a broken rib, facial lacerations and scraped hands, knees and hips in the fall, but was deemed fit to start Milan-SanRemo. He was tucked nicely in the middle of the peloton as it sped toward the Poggio in the last 10km of Milan-SanRemo when at the exit of a roundabout, he ran out of room to avoid a large bollard. Dimension Data announced on Twitter that he was being assessed by the medical team before the race ended. Cyclingnews will update this report with more information as it is available.

Mark Cavendish playing support role at Tour of Oman
February 13, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish says his main ambition at this weeks Tour of Oman will be to help his Dimension Data teammates in the battle for the overall classification. Cavendish is riding the six-day event for the first time since he rode the 2012 edition. Cavendish started his season last week at the Dubai Tour and opened up his win account with victory on stage 3. Aside from Cavendish, none of his teammates has made the short journey from Dubai to Oman, with climbing the priority and Merhawi Kudus in with a shout of a podium finish. There will be opportunities for the Manxman, however, and he will look to seize upon them. "Obviously, the race is bookended by sprints so I'll give it a shot and see what I can do. I am here without any lead-out guys," Cavendish said. "I'd like to support the climbers and the GC guys. Merhawi was strong here last year and I'd like to be part of helping him get up there. Obviously, with the sprints, it makes no difference for me to bounce around and be up there for the sprint."ADVERTISEMENT The team will also have Jacques Janse van Rensburg, Natnael Berhane, Nic Dougall, Nic Dlamini and Scott Davies in their arsenal. The Tour of Oman was not originally on Cavendish's early season race programme. However, with the team short of riders and an opportunity to avoid jet-lag and cold weather, Cavendish put his hand up to remain in the Middle East for a little while longer. "I was a last-minute addition. I was supposed to do Dubai and then fly home and then come out for Abu Dhabi, he explained. "Then we looked at the stage distances and I'd be doing a similar work-load if I went home. We were also a few riders down in the team so rather than calling up a reserve for another race, I said that I'd stay out and do it. I'm quite happy now, because it's snowing at home."
