Campenaerts disappointed with Tour de Romandie time trial performance
May 06, 2019 (21:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
New Hour Record holder Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Soudal) says that he's been left disappointed by his time-trial performances at the Tour de Romandie, despite having finished second to overall race winner Primo Rogli (Jumbo-Visma) on the final test around Geneva on Sunday. Campenaerts hoped to take his good form from setting a new best distance for the Hour Record in mid-April into the opening time trial stage of the Swiss stage race last Tuesday, but crashed on the Neuchtel course, leaving him to limp home in last place. Campenaerts rode consistently over the following five days, finishing the race 83rd overall, but had gone into the final stage hoping that he might be able to make amends and win over the 16.85km course. It wasn't to be, and the 27-year-old had no choice but to settle for second place on the day, 13 seconds off Rogli's winning time.ADVERTISEMENT "I rode the best possible time trial," the Belgian said on his team's website. "The first part included some climbing and was really tough, but I'm very good at riding uphill on my time trial bike. However, there was still someone who does that even better, and that's Primo Rogli. The team prepared everything to perfection, so it's a pity I couldn't reward them with the victory. "Throughout the week, I'd already noticed that Rogli was riding on another level, so I knew it would be difficult to beat him. Of course, I'm very disappointed. The prologue, in which I crashed, was a wasted opportunity. I've thought about it a lot. I took too many risks and it backfired on me," he said. Campenaerts now heads to the Giro d'Italia as part of a Lotto Soudal squad that also includes Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan and breakaway specialist Thomas De Gendt. There are three individual time trials at this year's Corsa Rosa, and Campenaerts has an eye on all of them, although they're all far from flat. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Thomas hits back at Wiggins comments on Armstrong
November 18, 2018 (23:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Geraint Thomas has hit back at Bradley Wiggins recent comments and emotively-driven support for Lance Armstrong, suggesting that his former Team Sky teammate is simply seeking publicity to help sell his latest book. Wiggins described Armstrong as the perfect Tour de France winner in his book called Icons, explaining that the Texan was perhaps the sort of winner that Tour de France founder Henri Desgrange had in mind 120 years ago when he created the race. Wiggins suggested that a Tour de France winner is on occasion, borderline sociopathic and always a very special, very driven human being. "I'm not saying he's an icon. He's iconic, for good and bad reasons now. I can't change the way it made me feel when I was 13. It changed my life," Wiggins explained in subsequent interviews revealing there was a "mutual respect in terms of what we've been through, racing against each other.ADVERTISEMENT Thomas " speaking in China while riding the Shanghai Tour de France criterium, made it clear to the AFP news agency that he did not agree with Wiggins. "Brad's got a book to sell," AFP reported Thomas as saying. "He does not have to worry about anything, either. He does not have to race his bike and deal with journalists. "He can just say what he wants and do any interview he wants so he can say something like that and get a load of publicity."

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.
