Freeman to face medical tribunal over testosterone patch delivery
November 12, 2018 (09:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Former Team Sky and British Cycling doctor Richard Freeman is set to face a medical tribunal in connection with the 2011 delivery of testosterone patches to the national team's headquarters in Manchester. According to a report in The Sunday Telegraph, Freeman is likely to face the General Medical Council tribunal which could decide to punish him with a suspension or remove him from the medical register. In 2016, UK Anti-Doping launched an investigation into the delivery of a 'mystery package' from British Cycling headquarters to Team Sky during the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine for Bradley Wiggins. During their examination of the records at the Manchester National Cycling Centre, investigators found evidence of a delivery of banned testosterone patches, as well as 60 - 70 vials of triamcinolone.ADVERTISEMENT Freeman worked for both teams in 2011, and the medical equipment for the two programmes shared storage space at the National Cycling Centre. Steve Peters, Team Sky's former medical director, at the time said the testosterone delivery was made in error and the patches were returned to the supplier. Freeman also denied any wrongdoing, saying the patches were never intended for athletes. But the supplier, Fit 4 Sport, declined to cooperate with the UKAD inquiry and provide supporting documentation of the error. British Cycling is a co-complainant in the GMC inquiry, and a spokesman said they "referred concerns in relation to Dr Richard Freeman's fitness to practice" to the GMC and "continue to support its ongoing investigation".

Cycling: Sky face dilemma keeping Froome and Thomas happy - Kelly
November 11, 2018 (02:00) [ Indexed from Yahoo! Sports ]
Froome will have his sights set on a record-equaling fifth Tour de France victory next July having had his domination ended by team mate and fellow Britain Thomas this year. Thomas burst out of Froome's shadow to claim a superb first Grand Tour title and the 32-year-old Welshman is unlikely to be More...
Chris Froome believes he can race for five more years
November 09, 2018 (07:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froome feels he can continue to race for at least five more years, by which point he would be 38. In an interview with Italian newspaperLa Gazzetta dello Sport, the Team Sky rider also claimed that very few riders - "maybe no one" - would be able to handle his training regime. I am convinced that I can keep going for another five years - so up to 38 years old," Froome said. The assertion did, however, come with a condition: "It must be at top level."ADVERTISEMENT Five more years would see Froome compete until then end of 2023 and would give him a career span of 16 years after turning professional in 2008. Froome's current contract with Team Sky runs out at the end of 2020. If he were to continue riding for five more seasons, he would likely have to battle rising star Egan Bernal for the leadership role within Team Sky, the Colombian having recently signed a five-year deal. Froome has already seen his position as sole Tour de France leader toppled by Geraint Thomas this season after the Welshman took his maiden Grand Tour victory at the French race. Froome has been the dominant Grand Tour rider in recent years, having won four Tours de France, a Vuelta a Espana and the Giro d'Italia. This season, he attempted to do the Giro-Tour double. He won the Giro in dramatic style with a long-range attack on the Colle delle Finestre on stage 19. However, he was unable to take a record-equalling fifth Tour de France and finished third overall.

Italy's Filippo Ganna joins Team Sky for 2019
October 19, 2018 (12:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Team Sky have confirmed that Italy's Filippo Ganna will be part of the British WorldTour team for 2019, boosting their squad for the cobbled Classics and time trials. 22-year-old Ganna has ridden for UAE Team Emirates for the last two seasons. He won the under 23 Paris-Roubaix in 2016 and won the Individual Pursuit world title on the track in 2016 and 2018. He recently finished second to Gianni Moscon in the Italian national time trial championships and is currently competing with Italy in the track World Cup in Paris.ADVERTISEMENT "Its a dream to sign for Team Sky. Its a very impressive team and everyone in cycling is used to seeing them winning the big races," Ganna said. "I hope I can continue to develop and improve on my first two years on the road. Im excited to meet up with the team for the first training camp and to start to work together. The team is really impressive in how they approach time trials and team time trials and that is an area I feel I can develop, in addition to the one-day races and one-week stage races going forward. "In 2018 I started to experience the Classics races as a pro for the first time and that is another area I would like to learn and focus on, to one day be able to compete at the front of those races." Ganna is Team Skys second confirmed signing for 2019 after Jhonatan Narvaez's arrival from Quick-Step Floors was announced on Thursday. Team Sky are also expected to sign Colombian climber Ivan Sosa but his move has been delayed by a contractual dispute between his former and current agents. Irelands Eddie Dunbar joined Team Sky in September after the collapse of the Aqua Blue Sport team. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Bernal shows flash of Classics potential at Il Lombardia
October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Egan Bernal (Team Sky) confirmed his huge potential yet again at Il Lombardia with a brilliant move across to the break on the descent or the Sormano. However, the difficulties of the final 50km of racing showed that not even the most promising talent in the peloton can compete for victory after two months out of action due to injury. Bernal crashed hard at the Clasica San Sebastian in early August and needed nose and mouth surgery. He made a comeback at the Giro dellEmilia last Saturday but was not expected to have an impact at the far tougher Il Lombardia. But when team leader Gianni Moscon suffered a puncture on the descent of the Colma di Sormano, Bernal stepped up and dived down the descent and across to Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo), Nibali and Pinot. It would be the winning move of the race, but Bernal eventually paid the price for his solo effort and was distanced on the lower slopes of the Civiglio climb. He finished 12th, 1:31 behind Pinot but only one place behind Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and ahead of Michael Woods (EF Education First-Drapac).ADVERTISEMENT He had the courage to take on the race but just not the legs to finish it off. Im happy because I went two months without racing and I only began racing again one week ago, Bernal said at the finish area before heading to the Team Sky for a final post-race shower of the season. "I wanted to do a good result here and I finished 12th. Thats not great, but I need to be happy as its normal that I needed time to recover after the crash. Now Im happy and motivated for next season. On the second part of the Muro di Sormano, the race kicked off," he said. "I was suffering and didnt really have the legs. I focused on getting across to the first group on the descent because I knew on the last climb I wouldnt be with them. So I preferred to make a fast descent, but without taking risks. I was always under control. I was able to re-join the leaders, which was really nice. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Nibali focused on Il Lombardia but considering his options beyond 2019
October 14, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Vincenzo Nibali is focused on ending his season with a strong performance at Il Lombardia and possibly even a third victory but he is also looking much further down the road, to the final phase of his career, as he decides if he will stay beyond 2019 with Bahrain-Merida or look for a new challenge elsewhere, perhaps even with Team Sky. Nibali will start Il Lombardia wearing the number 1 as the 2017 winner. He also won the event known as, Race of the Falling Leaves, in 2015 and has won either a Grand Tour or a Monument Classic for the last six seasons. Nibali won Milan-San Remo in March and so considers his 2018 season a success despite the pain and suffering he endured after being knocked off his bike by a spectator on stage 12 of the Tour de France on Alpe d'Huez. He underwent vertebroplasty surgery to ease the pain and returned in time for the Vuelta a Espaa, in the hope of finding the form for the World Championships in Innsbruck but cracked before the decisive climb.ADVERTISEMENT Nibali's form is better now than in Innsbruck two weeks ago but he does not know if it will be good enough to allow him to win Il Lombardia for a third time. "My form is an incognito," Nibali said with pragmatism. "I can only do what I can, my legs are what they are. It'll be about grit and determination. I haven't trained specifically for il Lombardia, I'm using the form I got from Vuelta, the Worlds and Giro dellEmilia, where I was eighth.

Luke Rowe signs three-year contract extension with Team Sky
October 12, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Luke Rowe has agreed a contract extension that will keep him at Team Sky for the next three seasons. The Welshmans new deal will expire at the end of the 2021 campaign. Rowe has spent the entirety of his professional career with Team Sky since he stepped up to WorldTour level in 2012. He has established himself as one of the squads leaders in the cobbled Classics and has been on the Tour de France team in each of the past four years. "Ive been with Sky since the start of my career and I really feel a part of the furniture here," Rowe said in a statement released by the team.ADVERTISEMENT "Its been seven years and this deal will take me through to 10 years with Team Sky, so it was an easy decision. This is home." Rowes 2018 season seemed at risk when he broke both the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a water rafting accident in August 2017, but he made a remarkable recovery and returned to action at the Abu Dhabi Tour in February. The 28-year-old proceeded to line out in the cobbled Classics and was later part of the Sky team that helped his fellow Welshman Geraint Thomas to overall victory at the Tour de France. Rowe brought the curtain down on his season in August after sustaining a fractured scaphoid at the European Championships in Glasgow. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Kwiatkowski: 'Tomorrow is the Vuelta's first big mountain checkpoint'
August 27, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Vuelta a Espaa race leader Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) has every intention of fighting for the top spot overall on Tuesdays first key mountain stage, the Pole explained after stage 3. Kwiatkowski and the Vuelta a Espaa GC contenders face their first big challenge Tuesday with the 12 kilometre ascent to Alfacar. Talking to reporters after he completed stage 3 safely in the main pack, Kwiatkowski said, its not about how long I want to have the jersey [of the race leader], its about having respect for it.ADVERTISEMENT Like in any race, you try to keep it as long as you can. This is not a game, its not something you just give away.So bearing that in mind I will try to hold it as long as possible. But I have no idea how long that could be. Munching on a bowl of rice between fielding questions, Kwiatkowski was noticeably blunt when asked how much he knew about the stage four ascent. Not much, he answered, before taking another mouthful of rice. However, the questions about whether Kwiatkowski can move across to fighting for GC in a Grand Tour in the future cannot be disconnected from the Polish racers performance in this Vuelta a Espaa. And on a climb like Alfacar, there may well be some answers, albeit ones in a context of having recently ridden both the Tour de France and Tour de Pologne, working very hard in the former and winning the latter.

Kwiatkowski rues missing out on Vuelta a Espana stage win
August 26, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After Team Sky shattered the peloton in the closing stages of the Vuelta a Espaa's first mass-start stage on Sunday, Michal Kwiatkowski was hoping to finish off his teammates' hard work with a stage victory in Caminito del Rey. But the Polish champion was unable to counter the powerful uphill surge from Movistar's Alejandro Valverde and had to settle for second place. Kwiatkowski missed out on winning the prologue by six seconds toBMC's Rohan Dennis, and even taking the race lead off the Australian was of little consolation after two near-misses in a row. "It's not the way I wanted to take the jersey, I was hoping to win the stage,"Kwiatkowski said according toTeamSky.com. "The team were amazing ahead of the finale but Valverde was very impressive. In his country, when he races La Vuelta, it's not easy to beat Alejandro. It's a bit disappointing but I'm the leader of La Vuelta."ADVERTISEMENT Kwiatkowski did not need the time bonus to overtake Dennis in the overall classification, as the BMC rider was distanced when Team Sky and Movistar surged with 30km to go. Dennis ended up losing over 13 minutes on the stage, putting Kwiatkowski in the lead over Valverde by 14 seconds with Sunweb's Wilco Kelderman in third at 25 seconds. There is the real possibility that the Pole can hold onto the race lead for several more days, but a stage win is his overarching goal. "I'm happy about yesterday and about my shape today. Let's stay focused and try to win another one," he said. "I just want to celebrate this moment. La Vuelta is really long so I want to enjoy tonight and then racing in the red jersey tomorrow." Kwiatkowski had plenty of podium time after the stage, as he leads the points and combined classifications in addition to the overall. The team has big ambitions even if they lack the kind of obvious Grand Tour firepower that they brought to the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France withChrisFroome and GeraintThomas.

Sky: Vuelta a Espana lead is possible for Kwiatkowski
August 25, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Team Sky turned in a strong global performance in the opening time trial stage of the Vuelta a Espana in Malaga, placing four riders in the top 20, including runner-up Michal Kwiatkowski. But if the win just eluded the British squad on Saturday, Sky's head sports director for the Vuelta promised they would fight for the lead on Sunday's uphill finish. Kwiatkowski came the closest of all the opposition to defeating Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing Team), missing out by six seconds. But with time bonuses of ten, six and four seconds waiting at the finish of tomorrow's stage, as well as three-, two- and one-second bonuses in the intermediate sprints, there will be plenty of opportunities to unseat the Australian. Even as Saturday's stage was drawing to a close, Sky's management were already making calculations about the chances of Kwiatkowski repeating his brief spell in the Vuelta lead in 2016. "Michal did a perfect prologue, really good, no mistakes, so we should be happy, it's a good start," Team Sky directeur sportif Gabriel Rasch told Cyclingnews. "And tomorrow's finish is really good for Kwiato as well, so the red jersey [of leader] is definitely possible." He was more cagey about whether Kwiatkowski would or would not go for a GC placing in the Vuelta, saying "we'll take that on the day by day."ADVERTISEMENT Rasch said he was very satisfied with the way Sky's other riders had defended themselves on the time trial course, "Dylan [Van Baarle, fifth], Pavel [Sivakov, 38th], Tao [Geoghegan] Hart, 18th], Castro' [Jonathan Castroviejo, seventh] all did very well. David De La Cruz [81st] did a similar time to [Vincenzo] Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and [Nairo] Quintana (Movistar), so he's in the game." De La Cruz himself was somewhat disappointed with his race, telling Spanish television afterwards that "it was a pity, I hoped to do better. I know that I always have a tough time on the first stage of a race, but I didn't expect to lose so much time. I know the form is good, I have to be optimistic. "I checked out the time trial the other day when the roads were open, this morning I did it twice to be sure of my line on the curves and then I looked at it on my computer. One important goal was not to crash, the other to stay close to the leaders. I was a little bit off the pace but it wasn't a total catastrophe." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
No Chris Froome or Geraint Thomas but Team Sky send strong team to Vuelta a Espana
August 22, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
With Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas racing at the Tour of Britain next month, Michal Kwiatkowski and David de la Cruz will head up Team Skys general classification ambitions for the Vuelta a Espana. Alongside Kwiatkowski and De La Cruz, the team has opted for a blend of youth and experience. Tao Geoghegan Hart and Pavel Sivakov will make their Grand Tour debuts with Jonathan Castroviejo, Sergio Henao, Salvatore Puccio, and Dylan van Baarle completing the line-up. Kwiatkowski has shown promise as a Grand Tour rider in the past with his 11th place at the 2013 Tour de France. In recent years, however, he has turned his focus to the Classics and shorter stage races, while riding in a support role in three-week races. The Polish national champion has had a strong 2018 campaign with overall victories at the Volta ao Algarve and Tirreno-Adriatico at the start of the season.ADVERTISEMENT He played a key role in the mountains for team leaders Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome during the Tour de France and held his form to take victory at his home race, the Tour de Pologne. Kwiatkowski has only ridden the Vuelta a Espana once before, in 2016 during his debut season with Team Sky. It will be the first time that the 28-year-old has ridden two Grand Tours in the same season. Vuelta selection is another important step in my career. Ive never raced two Grand Tours in one season, so I am intrigued to see how my body will react to that challenge. But I dont feel any pressure " just excitement before a new experience, Kwiatkowski said in a team press release. Its been a busy summer for me. Just six days after the Tour de France I started in the Tour of Poland and was able to stay in top shape, winning my home race. This year Im trying to finish the season with a slightly different approach. I think that staying in a racing rhythm might just suit me. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Doull cleared of concussion after BinckBank crash " News Shorts
August 19, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Owain Doull (Team Sky) has abandoned the BinckBank Tour after suffering a heavy crash in the final 40 kilometres of stage 5 and being diagnosed with a suspected concussion. TeammatesLukasz Wisniowski and Dylan van Baarle were also both caught up in the incident, but Doull was by far the worst affected. Doull remounted his bike after the crash but complained of feeling "strange", and was immediately pulled from the race by the team's doctor. Further tests cleared him of any concussion, however. Doull was left disappointed, but believed that it was better to be safe than sorry. "Always gutting not to finish a race but when it comes to concussion it's not worth it," Doull said later on Twitter.ADVERTISEMENT Team doctor Richard Usher explained the incident further. "Owain crashed at around 50kph. He was initially assessed after the crash by the race doctor but within minutes of getting back on his bike he came to the team car feeling "very strange" and in shock. We immediately took him out of the race with a clear and suspected concussion," he said on the team website. "He has been subsequently seen and assessed in hospital, and thankfully all his scans are clear and he is improving. He will undergo a graduated return to riding under the team's medical policy. He will be out of hospital tonight and we will keep a close eye on him overnight. If everything is OK he will go home tomorrow." Doull's departure compounded a difficult day for Team Sky, with Diego Rosa also stepping off during the stage due to fatigue, while Chris Lawless didn't start the next stage after falling ill overnight.

Ganna's 2020 vision for Tokyo expected to include a Team Sky focus
August 16, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Filippo Ganna has toggled between track and road in recent years, claiming a brace of world titles in the individual pursuit while finding his feet in the WorldTour ranks in the colours of UAE Team Emirates. It is a balancing act that will continue at least until the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, where Ganna hopes to strike gold as part of Italy's increasingly competitive team pursuit squad, while also racing on the road, probably with Team Sky, after La Gazzetta dello Sport said his move to the British team is a mere formality. "I think it's the number one objective for me in the coming years," Ganna told Cyclingnews, refusing to confirm a move to Team Sky. "We have targeted it and we're working to do what we can together. We're hoping that in the final build-up we'll be able to do a nice block of work to get there in form." Mixing the boards and the road is never straightforward but Ganna has something of a role model to follow in the shape of fellow countryman Elia Viviani, who claimed gold in the omnium at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and who may very well be part of the Italian pursuit quartet in Japan, while bring a successful sprinter on the road.ADVERTISEMENT A year and a half before the 2016 Games, Viviani decided to sign for Team Sky, reasoning that it was the best environment in which to combine his track and road ambitions. Ganna seems set to follow a similar build-up to Tokyo 2020 by switching to Team Sky at the end of this season. Viviani has since moved from Team Sky to Quick-Step Floors to ensure more freedom in road races but has no regrets about dividing his career between the road and track. Ganna agreed that Viviani's commitment has served as something of an inspiration. "We've got two different styles, obviously, because he's a sprinter and I'm a passista, a rouleur, but he has managed to be competitive on the road and the track," Ganna said. "We'll just have to see how I develop over the coming years and how I work with my team." Overcoming the odds You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Kwiatkowski savours Tour de Pologne victory after courageous final defence
August 11, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
History turned full circle for Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) at the Tour de Pologne after the Pole managed to secure overall success on the same finish where he lost the race six years ago. In 2012, Kwiatkowski lost to Italys Moreno Moser in Bukowina, eventually finishing second overall place. This time despite a dangerous late attack by Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), the Pole limited any time loss, finishing sixth at the line and so kept the leaders yellow jersey by 14 seconds. It was a narrow margin, but enough of a gap to seal the Team Sky rider's first ever victory in his countrys biggest stage race, which also came with two stage wins at Szczyrk, where he took the lead, and Bielsko-Biala.ADVERTISEMENT The Tour de Pologne is Kwiatkowskis second WorldTour stage race win after taking Tirreno-Adriatico this spring. His success and his form bodes well for his upcoming participation in the Vuelta a Espaa, which he led in 2016, and in the World Road-Race Championships in Innsbruck. The Pole won the world title in Ponferrada, Spain in 2014. Thats the Tour of Pologne Youve got those emotions until the end of the race because everything is so close, Kwiatkowski said afterwards, savouring his victory. We didnt panic as a team; without the boys I wouldnt have been able to defend the jersey. They rode an amazing race; first Ian Stannard and Lukas Wisniowski, then Michal Golas and Salvatore Puccio, Pavel Sivakov and Sergio Henao at the end. They were incredibly strong.
