Kwiatkowski proves he is back to his best with Strade Bianche win
March 04, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Michal Kwiatkowski punched the air several times as he arrived alone and victorious in Sienas Piazza del Campo, celebrating a well-deserved win at Strade Bianche but also enjoying his return to success after a difficult first season with Team Sky. The 26-year-old Polish rider had not won a race since last years E3 Harelbeke. He started the 2016 season very skinny, but failed to finish a long series of stage races. He seemed a shadow of the rider who soloed to victory at the 2014 World Championships and won the 2015 Amstel Gold Race. Kwiatkowski cuts a diminutive figure compared to the bulk of the Cobbled classic contenders. He is also softly spoken and clearly emotive yet was not afraid to reveal he had endured a difficult 2016.ADVERTISEMENT "Im very happy to win, but it wasnt all or nothing," Kwiatkowski said during the winners press conference with the written media at Strade Bianche. "Im very happy with how it went. I had a lot of difficulties last season, but now Im happy with the current situation. "I was maybe pushing myself to the limit too much to impress everyone last year. Im not a machine, and sooner or later you pay the bill. I wasnt happy but had great support from the team with my health problems and not finishing races, they always believed in me. I didnt lose my talent, I just had to wait and work hard to get back on the level. "Before I started training [for 2017] I tried to stay calm. My main goal was to be back at my level. Im just happy to be having fun on my bike again." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Van Avermaet rues missed opportunity at Strade Bianche but enjoys the hard racing
March 04, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Greg van Avermaet (BMC Racing)was disappointed to finish second at Strade Bianche and regretted letting Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) go clear alone with 15km to race, yet he managed to raise a smile after the finish in Sienas Piazza del Campo, knowing he had been in a great race. "It was really old school today. From the fifth or sixth section of dirt roads [with close to 100km left to race], it was full gas to the finish. There was never a moment when you cold recover a little bit," he said. "This was the hardest edition of the race Ive done. It opened up so early and thats why every guy was one against one. Thats what made it so hard. Everybody had to ride on their own. Ive never gone that slow on the climbs... "I think this is a real Classic. Its a fight to the strade, then when you are on the strade its risky and technical. Then with the wind and the rain, you can make the race hard wherever you want. Its such a nice race because all that makes it hard and special. In every sector you have to be there. I love it." Van Avermaet was gracious in defeat but suggested Kwiatkowski was lucky to get away when he did. "I ride to win, but before we got together [in the finale], there was lots of jumping and stopping, jumping and stopping; that kills you even more. He went full gas and went really strong, otherwise he wouldnt have kept the gap. "Its too bad its second, but I think you had to be a little bit lucky. Kwiatkowski was strong, but me, Styby and Wellens were strong too. But you have to have a little bit of luck on who can go and who you make [close] the gap. We were just jumping around like idiots, but thats racing too. More to come in April Van Avermaet is in impressive form for early March. He beat Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) to win Omloop Het Nieuwsblad for a second consecutive time last weekend and showed his form with a series of powerful and aggressive attacks during Strade Bianche.ADVERTISEMENT His winter training was delayed after suffering a non-displaced fibula fracture during a mountain bike ride in November. He underwent surgery but seems to have quickly found his form. He believes there is more to come before he returns to Belgium for the cobbled classics. "I think so," he said optimistically. "I feel good and in shape. I felt fresh today. I took a week of recovery last week because I want a good build-up to the Classics. This was a first goal, and you can see Im up there. I think Tirreno can make me a little bit stronger like always, then it happens: We have three or four chances [in the Classics]. I hope I can catch one." You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Bradley Wiggins doctor pulls out of anti-doping select hearing due to illness
February 28, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The latest and potentially conclusive meeting of the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) anti-doping select committee takes place on Wednesday afternoon at the Palace of Westminster when the details of the UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) investigation into Team Sky are expected to be revealed. Appearing at the meeting will be Nicole Sapstead, Chief Executive of UKAD, and former British Cycling women's road manager Simon Cope, who delivered the now infamous Jiffy bag to Dr Richard Freeman and Bradley Wiggins at the 2011 Critrium du Dauphin. The hearing, which is not under oath, was moved to March 1 to accommodate Cope who has been at a Team Wiggins training camp. Freeman had been scheduled to appear in front of the committee but the Press Association have reported that the doctor emailed thecommittee's chairman Damian Collins MP on Tuesday stating that he was too ill to attend. Freeman was set to face questions over the delivery and need for the package during the 2011 Dauphine, as well as the administration ofFluimucil given to Bradley Wiggins at the end of the race. According to the Guardian a spokesperson for the committee said that Freeman may have the options of supplying written testimony or face the committee at a later date. Freeman no longer works for Team Sky but has remained in his position at British Cycling.ADVERTISEMENT Julian Knight MP, part of the committee took to Twitter once news of Freeman's decision not to attend was made public. "News to me. I trust if true Dr Freeman recovers very soon and is then able to appear before us to answer important questions." The Jiffy-gate affair, as some have dubbed it, has now been running since last autumn, and, allied to questions over Team Sky's use of TUEs during Wiggins' Grand Tour schedules, prompted a UKAD investigation into both Sky and British Cycling. During the last DCMS hearing in December, Team Sky principal Dave Brailsford informed the committee that team doctor Freeman had told him that the Jiffy bag delivered to Wiggins contained a decongestant. "It was Fluimucil," Brailsford said. Following that hearing, the committee, chaired by MP Damian Collins, requested that evidence was provided of this medication being administered to Wiggins.

Roche: Team Sky and BMC only have minor differences
February 25, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Nicolas Roche has found a happy medium and wont have to reinvent himself at new team BMC Racing this season. The Irish national road champion has forged a career as a dynamic rider, with BMC his sixth professional team since turning professional in 2004. Ive been through every single phase, from leading out sprints with Thor Hushovd, to riding in the mountains on my own account, to helping out some of the best riders in the world, to doing a bit of both, Roche told Cyclingnews. Its quite nice to be able to have different phases through my career, to have different roles and Im always excited every year anyway. Save for the jersey, Roche noted little difference between BMC and its rival Team Sky. He arrives at BMC after a two-year-stint with the Grand Tour-winning powerhouse.ADVERTISEMENT Every team has its own little habits more than anything else. At the end of the day, its a bunch of guys riding a bicycle and at this stage, its going from one of the best teams to another one of the best teams, so the differences are very minor, he said. The two outfits are due to clash at the Tour de France this year, with Roche set to support challenger Richie Porte in what will be the Australians second title bid and his first as sole leasing, having shared responsibility with Tejay van Garderen in 2016. Ive known Tejay now a good few years but Richie even more. We train together quite a lot in Monaco, we were together already at Sky and Im quite looking forward to being with him, Roche said.

February 23, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Owain Doull has called for disc brakes to be banned unless protective casings are introduced after suffering a crash on the opening day of the Abu Dhabi Tour in which one of Marcel Kittels rotors slashed through his shoe. The Team Sky riderhit the deck with a kilometre remaining and showed Cyclingnews and other reporters his left shoe, which had a straight cut in two parts running almost the entire length of the forefoot. Standing receiving treatment for road rash on his backside, Doull pointed to his foot, where a cut " fortunately not too deep " was showing through a tear in his sock.ADVERTISEMENT "My shoe was cut to pieces. Thats definitely a disc brake that has done that, said Doull. "Its gone straight through the shoe into my foot. Its lucky thats not my leg to be honest. If anything Ive come off lucky there, if thatd been my leg it would have cut straight through it, for sure. Youve seen my shoe " its gone straight through that." "Nothing else could cut like that, its like a knife, it cut straight through it. You can see that thin line, its exactly in line, cut there and cut there on my shoe and both straight through in an arrow-straight line."
