Dauphine: Contador unfazed by missing top 10
June 12, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alberto Contador (Trek Segafredo) shrugged off the fact that he dropped outside the top 10 on GC on the final day of the Criterium du Dauphine, instead choosing to focus on the belief that the race was merely preparation for the Tour de France. Contador insisted throughout the Dauphine that he would not go into the red during the race and that riding at his own tempo " whether in the time trial or the mountains " was key to his Tour de France ambitions. He explained, almost daily, that in previous editions of the Dauphine he had gone too deep and that his Tour condition had suffered as a result. On the final stage on Sunday the Spaniard raised the tempo just once " when race leader Richie Porte (BMC Racing) was dropped on the penultimate climb. However, on the final ascent to Plateau de Solaison Contador sat up when a group of favourites that included, eventual stage and overall winner, Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) increased the pace. When Contador eased off, he watched as several potential Tour de France rivals overtook him. At one point he even waved Porte through, clearly not concerned with the result. Contador eventually finished the stage 4:10 down on Fuglsang, leaving him 11th overall.ADVERTISEMENT There were a lot of attacks from the start, and it was very hard. It was a beautiful day and really hot. I followed a few moments and went to the front when Richie was dropped but when we hit the final climb it was a very hard tempo, and in those moments I felt big pains in my legs, Contador explained at the finish. Contadors Dauphine provided a contrast to his earlier season performances, where in races such as Paris-Nice, he was constantly on the offensive. Only time will tell if this new approach will suit the Trek Segafredo rider, but his camp is quietly confident that the 34-year-old is on track to challenge for his third Tour title in July, even if there is work to be done. I preferred to take my own tempo and decided to save my legs. The most important thing is that Ive finished this race really fresh. In the last few years, Ive finished tired, empty. I think that I can now recover well in the next three days and then start my preparation again. I know that I need to work on my intensity, but at the moment its perfect. Its not about the GC here.

Contador still in GC hunt but 'a long way off' top rivals after Catalunya TTT
March 21, 2017 (21:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alberto Contador has his work cut out for him at the Volta a Catalunya this week after Tuesday's unusually long stage 2 team time trial. Trek-Segafredo finished fourth on the day, 1:15 down on the stage-winning Movistar squad. It was a solid ride, but that's a hefty deficit to make up on the likes of Alejandro Valverde in a one-week race. "I am happy, we have given everything, we have been quite well-organised and we did a good TTT, but we are a long way off our most important rivals," Contador said. "Valverde is 1:15 ahead, which is a lot. Now we have to look at the upcoming stages, starting with La Molina, which is not very hard as an ascent and where there may well be no big differences. Perhaps the time bonuses will be the most important time gaps."ADVERTISEMENT Valverde isn't the only rider standing in Contador's way, as stage 2 runner-up BMC Racing and third-placed Team Sky both have contenders for the overall victory. "The race has got more complicated because van Garderen and Sky with Froome and Thomas are all ahead," Contador said. "So we'll have to see what we can do." Nevertheless, Contador is not throwing in the towel just yet, and he sees openings in the days to come, particularly given the way recent editions of the race have played out. The Spaniard was second to Movistar's Nairo Quintana last year by just seven seconds. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Contador recovers from illness to race Paris-Nice
March 05, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) has recovered from recent illness to line up at Paris-Nice where he will look to avenge a narrow loss from last year. The Spaniard finished a close second in the Race to the Sun in 2016, finishing four seconds adrift of Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) after losing time in a late split. Contador has already impressed this season with a number of attacking displays and second overall in Ruta del Sol. He is still looking for his first win in Trek colours and will look at Paris-Nice " a race he won for the first time a decade ago " as the ideal opportunity. A cold at the end of February led to a short course of antibiotics but the former Tour de France winner has been given the all-clear to race.ADVERTISEMENT It was just a cold but its under control now and I feel better. I was a little sick on the last stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour. In Andalucia I took antibiotics but I finished them last week and now I feel better and have confidence for the hard part of the race, he told Cyclingnews as he lined up for stage 1 of Paris-Nice in Bois-dArcy. While Contador is in clement health the same could not be said of the weather conditions on stage 1. The rain fell overnight and continued during the sign-on with winds expected during the relatively short but technical stage. Given that Contador lost Paris-Nice last year due to a late split in the bunch, he knows better than most that riders with GC aspirations need to be attentive throughout the race. Every stage is a difficult for GC, he said. We know that in Paris-Nice you can lose everything in one day and today the differences can be bigger than in the mountain stages or the time trial. You need to pay attention and make sure that youre in a good position the whole time. Then you just need to cross your fingers. One rider tasked with keeping Contador is Gregory Rast. The experienced Swiss rider worked for Contador back in their Astana days and also rode as a domestique for Fabian Cancellara. The 37-year-old has the difficult task of supporting Contador and riding for John Degenkolb in the sprints. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Contador: Mollema and I can strengthen one another
October 01, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alberto Contador has played down any early talk of leadership issues between himself and Bauke Mollema at Trek-Segafredo, insisting they can both improve as a result of the partnership. The Spaniard, as reported by Cyclingnews at the Tour de France, will make the move from Tinkoff, who are folding at the end of this season, joining established Grand Tour leader Mollema at Trek-Segafredo. The Dutchman has been at Trek since the start of 2015 and has finished seventh and 11th in the last two editions of the Tour de France, with his best result of sixth coming in 2013. This year he was on course for the podium but crashed out of contention in stage 18's downpour.ADVERTISEMENT However, the arrival of Contador, whose palmares includes two Tour de France titles along with three at the Vuelta a Espana and two at the Giro d'Italia, signals a disruption to the pecking order. With both riders set to make the Tour de France their primary objective of the 2017 season, the age-old leadership issue is bound to rear its head, but Contador insisted the partnership will not lead to any tensions. "There's no problem," he said in an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. "We have plenty of races ahead of the Tour to get used to each other and I am confident that we will both discover the benefits of working together. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Hell Starts Here: The Vuelta a Espanas Ascent to Mas de la Costa
September 07, 2016 (13:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Todays Vuelta a Espana stage concludes with the first ever ascent of the first category Mas de la Costa, an ultra-steep, technical climb that could cause further surprises in the battle for overall victory. The riders will be greeted by a welcome message painted on the road: Aqu empieza el infierno -Hell Starts Here. After which, the Vuelta peloton certainly faces a very real world of pain. The Mas de la Costa climb - which translates roughly as the farmstead with the slope - is only 4.3 kilometres long, but is, as Cyclingnews discovered when checking out the route, exceptionally challenging. The rare data, present on a stone plaque on the right of the road at the foot of the climb is daunting: in such a short distance, theres an average gradient of 12.7 percent, a vertical gain of 486 metres and reaching a height of 982 metres above sea level. The summit is on a lonely hillside set deep in the most rural part of the region of Valencia. Even the ten kilometres before the climb are not straightforward, albeit on normal roads running deep inland in the province of Castellon in northern Valencia. Constantly undulating, combined with the current heat wave and coming at the end of a 177.5 kilometre stage with 3,640 metres of vertical climbing; you can see why Alberto Contador warned on the rest day about how dangerous this stage could be. It is also why he and his rivals went to see the climb instead of enjoying a quiet rest day.ADVERTISEMENT This final approach to the town of Llucena will certainly help fracture what remains of the peloton. A narrow, twisting run through the towns main square, a sharp left hand bend in the main square and finally a short uphill section taking the peloton back into the countryside all provide added difficulty. Theres a fast, fairly technical descent on broad roads out of the town for a couple of kilometres to add to the tension, and then with a left hand fork the road abruptly narrows as the climb itself begins. Positioning will be crucial, given what follows, all the way to the top, is a strip of road barely more than a cars-width at any point and with no false flats or downhills at all.

Vuelta a Espana: Froome vows to keep on fighting after stage 15 disaster
September 05, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froome (Team Sky) held onto his second place position at the Vuelta a Espana after stage 15 of the Spanish grand tour but his aspirations of joining Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault in completing a Tour de France-Vuelta double have all but expired. Froome, who won a third Tour title in July, saw his 54 second disadvantage to Nairo Quintana (Movistar) blow out to3:37 minutes after the 118.5km stage fromSabinanigo to Formigal that saw 93 riders miss the time cut.A day after matching Quintana on the Cold'Aubisque, Froome had no answers to the Colombian. "It's definitely made it a lot more hard now. A minute was manageable; three minutes is going to be extremely tough. But stranger things have happened and we're going to keep fighting all the way," Froome told ITV Sport."It was a tough stage for us, obviously. The guys did a lot of work yesterday, so we weren't as prepared as some of the other teams this morning."ADVERTISEMENT Froome and Team Sky were on the back foot almost from the gun as Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) and stage winner Gianluca Brambilla (Etixx-QuickStep) instigated the day's breakaway of 14-riders which was joined by Quintana.David Lopez and Salvatore Puccio were the sole Team Sky riders by Froome's side as the advantage started to swell asMovistar interrupted the chase via Alejandro Valverde andImanol Erviti. "Obviously, getting caught out there with Contador and Quintana in that early break, that put us on the back foot and we just never recovered," Froome added."Credit to them. They rode a really smart race and they have gained a lot of time today on us." When Movistar had an isolated Froome on the ropes during stage 9 of the 2013 Tour into Bagnres-de-Bigorre, the Spanish team failed to capitalise and after the stalemate of stage 14 they well and truly made up for past indiscretions to position Quintana on the cusp of his first grand tour victory over the Briton.

Contador vows to fight on in Vuelta a Espana
August 30, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
A defiant Alberto Contador(Tinkoff) has insisted that he will continue to fight for the overall classification in the Vuelta a Espaa even if, as he put it in a rest day press conference on Tuesday, "things are not going to be at all straightforward from here on in." Currently fifth overall at nearly three minutes from Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and with bandages and scars on his left arm and leg, Contador even joked a little when asked directly what kind of condition he really felt he was in at this point in the Vuelta. "Physically? Mentally? In terms of morale?" Contador said with a broad grin. "I'm fine, I'm going to enjoy what the race holds ahead of me and I'm happy there are lots of hard days left in the Vuelta."ADVERTISEMENT "There are lots more opportunities. I have to remember I'm a long way down on Nairo and his team is very strong. That makes things a lot more difficult." "But if I'm here in the Vuelta, I'm not here just to make up the numbers." Contador recognised that he had made some errors on the ascent to Covadonga by attacking and then losing a lot of power later on, which caused him to lose time on his rivals. "I've got a lot of very different sensations, but I think I'm going to be more cautious from now on," he observed. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Vuelta a Espana: How the GC contenders fared at Lagos de Covadonga
August 29, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Ranking the overall contenders at Vuelta a Espaa can be a rather hazardous sort of an exercise in its early phases, at least when compared with the more regimented Tour de France. This late in the season, in a race where weaker teams and more fatigued riders tackle often unfamiliar terrain, the Vuelta carries few of the certainties of July. Small wonder, then, that the general classification situation was decidedly nebulous for the opening week, but the picture sharpened into focus on the 12-kilometre climb of Lagos de Covadonga on Monday, the final act before the race breaks for its opening rest day. Eleven stages from the finish in Madrid, this Vuelta already seems destined to boil down to a straight duel between two men " Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Chris Froome (Team Sky). Just seven kilometres from the summit of Lagos de Covadonga, however, it looked as though Quintana was about to be locked in hand-to-hand combat with a different foe for the next two weeks. With Froome seemingly faltering some 45 seconds behind, Quintana responded smartly to an acceleration from Alberto Contador (Tinkoff), and together the pair put daylight into all of the erstwhile contenders.ADVERTISEMENT For a few kilometres, it appeared that Lagos de Covadonga was about to bear out the impressions of Saturdays haul up to La Camponera, where Quintana had been the strongest of the GC men and Contador the most determined. Yet by the time Quintana eased clear of Contador inside the final four kilometres, he was not so much ridding himself of the Spaniard as battling to ensure he held off a resurgent Froome. Like the runner Paula Radcliffe, Froomes ungainly style of riding means that gauging his condition from a glance is nigh on impossible; only the watch is a reliable indicator. When his deficit to Quintana was edging out towards a minute just shy of midway up the climb, it seemed as though his race was run, but Froome then seemingly went into overdrive on the upper reaches, picking off Esteban Chaves (Orica-BikeExchange), Contador and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) in succession en route to third on the stage, just 25 seconds down on Quintana. Not quite Pantani on Oropa, but a startling turnaround nonetheless.

Contador continues recovery for second day in Vuelta a Espana
August 28, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Two days after his big crash in the Vuelta a Espaa, Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) continues to recover from his injuries, although as the Spaniard had predicted, he spent the stage following wheels rather than trying to recoup some more time losses. Contador had warned after stage 8, where he raced surprisingly strongly on the ascent of Alto de la Camperona, that injuries of the type he suffered in stage 7 of the Vuelta were often more painful and trickier to handle 48 hours after the crash, rather than in the more immediate aftermath. However, on stage 9 the Spaniard looked to be in solid, if not spectacular shape, staying with the main group of favourites and finishing 18th on the Naranco, even as outsiders like former leader Darwin Atapuma (BMC Racing) and Louis Meintjes (Lampre-Merida) shipped a little time.ADVERTISEMENT Still seventh overall, the Spanish stage racing specialist began his customary post-race interviews by congratulating compatriot David De La Cruz (Etixx-QuickStep) at length for taking the lead. But he then described his own feelings in a somewhat ambiguous fashion as "good, although my legs felt more blocked up than I'd have liked." "It was a very hard start, very fast, so maybe that's why I felt a bit blocked up, but overall I'm happy, once my legs had warmed up I felt fine." Contador said before proceeding to warm down on the rollers near the line. "It was a relatively straightforward stage, not too complicated in the bunch. I'm looking forward to the Lagos de Covadonga [on Monday's summit finish] because I like mountain stages, but let's see how my body recovers first." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Michael Matthews set to sign for Giant-Alpecin
June 13, 2016 (09:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Cyclingnews understands that Michael Matthews will ride for Giant-Alpecin in 2017. The Australian will head to the WorldTour team while John Degenkolb is likely to sign for Trek-Segafredo. Although no contracts can officially be signed or ratified until the UCIs official August 1 deadline, Cyclingnews has been told by sources that the Australian will leave his current team, Orica-GreenEdge, at the end of this year. Degenkolb has already been linked to Trek-Segafredo and is expected to take two or three teammates with him to the American team. Both Giant-Alpecin and Orica-GreenEdge managements remained tight-lipped when contacted by Cyclingnews and both Matthews and Degenkolb are expected to ride the Tour de France for their respective teams this season. Cyclingnews also understands that Giant have been working on signing Matthews for some time, believing that he is a stronger long-term prospect.ADVERTISEMENT Matthews, 25, moved to Orica-GreenEdge in 2013 and won two stages in that years Vuelta. He had another breakthrough in the 2014 Giro dItalia, wearing the maglia rosa and winning a stage. In 2015 he won another stage in the race before finishing second at the World Championships in Richmond, Virginia. He is currently riding the Tour de Suisse, where he is looking to win stages ahead of the Tour de France. More on this story: Matthews to target stages in Tour de Suisse Contador to hold talks with Trek-Segafredo Degenkolb to Trek-Segafredo Orica-GreenEdge are in the middle of re-signing riders for next season. Sources have added that Matthews has not re-signed with them, however, and Adam and Simon Yates, Simon Gerrans and Caleb Ewan are also all out of contract for next season. The team confirmed earlier this week that Orica would leave the sport at the end of 2017 but this appears unrelated to Matthews departure. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Criterium du Dauphine: Chris Froome earns Cyclingnews rider of the day honours
June 10, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
In a new feature, the Cyclingnews team pick their rider of the day from the Criterium du Dauphine. Chris Froome is the stage 5 pick, and we will be selecting a rider after each stage. After finishing only third in the prologue, Chris Froome (Team Sky) has been peppered with questions about his form ahead of the Tour de France. Alberto Contadors win on the opening day was as comprehensive a victory as he could have hoped for but since then the tables have slowly turned in Froomes favour. On the final climb of stage 5 the two rivals swapped more than just the leaders jersey " this was a psychological blow across Contadors bow as much as it was physical, because regardless of whether one is at 90 per cent or another is at 100 per cent, neither enjoys losing to the other. At the starts and finishes during this years race there has been a growing sense that Froome was just waiting for his moment to pounce. He couldnt wait to get stuck in. He raced at the front on every stage and when the opportunity was created he stamped authority on the race. ADVERTISEMENT "It's a really nice feeling to be back in yellow and to win a stage like that," he said at the finish. The race is far from won, however. Daniel Benson says: Froome and Sky have been criticised in the past for the manner in which they ride and win. There are multi-faceted reasons behind that but if you take the argument that they dominate races into submission then todays performance flew in the face of that. Instead of eight Sky riders on the front, the British team sat back and allowed Contadors squad to wear themselves out. Landas role was pivotal but in another sense inconsequential. He laid the groundwork for Froome but the strongest rider won. He just did it in a different " and somewhat more impressive " way. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Criterium du Dauphine: Contador's lead slashed in split behind stage 4 crash
June 09, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) lost nine seconds of his slim lead in the Critrium du Dauphin on stage 4, when he found himself on the wrong side of a split in the peloton caused by a crash from Cofidis rider Borut Bozic. He now leads the overall classification by just four seconds on Chris Froome (Sky), who made the front split and gained nine seconds. It was an unexpected result to a stage that should have been uncomplicated for the overall contenders, who were content to take a back seat to the sprinters on the relatively flat 176km stage from Tain-l'Hermitage to Belley. Contador said the stage was calm as expected until the finish, which he described as "truly crazy". "Initially, it seemed as if the group would cross the finish line together. However, right after the 2km mark there was a big pile-up which caused gaps in the peloton."ADVERTISEMENT The crash was caused when Cofidis rider Borut Bozic clipped a concrete barrier and flew through the air into the peloton, luckily only taking out AG2R La Mondiale's Alexis Gougeard and not causing a bigger wreck. But the disruption to a very high pace was enough to cause the split, according to Tinkoff directeur sportif Steven De Jongh. "The crash caused some real uncertainty in the group. We were expecting the 3km rule to be applied, but we ended up losing time," De Jongh said. "Alberto and some of the other GC riders tried to fight back to the front, but some of the other teams' sprint train riders sat up and delayed the riders behind and the commissaries allowed the time gaps to stand." De Jongh was frustrated by the decision not to apply the UCI rule 2.6.027 which states, "In the case of a duly noted fall, puncture or mechanical incident in the last three kilometers of a road race stage, the rider or riders involved shall be credited with the time of the rider or riders in whose company they were riding at the moment of the accident,"therefore Contador should be given the same time as the stage winner.

Froome breathing down Contadors neck as Dauphine mountains loom
June 09, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Stage 4 of the Criterium du Dauphine was supposed to be a stage for the sprinters and a relative day off for the overall contenders, and although Edvald Boasson Hagen came away with the win, it was Chris Froome (Team Sky) who benefited after his principle rivals lost time in the uphill finish. The Team Sky rider glued himself to the front runners and finished 14th on the stage. Alberto Contador and Richie Porte " the two other favourites for the Dauphine " finished nine seconds down. Contador still leads the race but his advantage has been cut from 13 to four seconds over Froome. With three tough mountain stages to come the Team Sky rider is breathing right down Contadors neck. And while Contador has looked to deflect attention of the importance of the Dauphine, Froome has repeatedly made a case of using the defence of his Dauphine crown as part of his Tour preparation.ADVERTISEMENT From the word go here Ive said that this is an important race for me, a determined Froome told Cyclingnews at the finish of the stage. The Dauphine is an important race in its own right. Yes, its the last race for me in the build up before the Tour but its important in its own right. When asked about the splits in the peloton, Froome added, I didnt expect to make up time today, definitely not. On paper it was a pretty straight forward sprint.
