    veloclinic:

how do they strip two races based on 1 abnormal result ? and menchov only loses TDF results?
or was the JTL biopassport 1 abnormal value story a bit of bullshit ?
because that was the timeline right … JTL evalled by Garmin n Sky prior to abnormal result, signed by Sky. Then tested 2-3 more times allowing biopassport to then establish baseline which flags the first result ?
totally befuddled by this transparency

    Between here and the third week of July, it’s hard to think of a more interesting and exciting week in the sport of professional cycling, to use a classic Sherwenism.

    The Women’s Tour – a new beginning

    First and most importantly, the…

  6. It’s not just the superb terrain and scenery that made this race one of the best ever in the UK in our view, it was the standard of organisation, marshalling and policing – along with a great “race buzz” and a thoroughly professional set up in all areas, including a flawlessly policed rolling road closure. We can only hope that it runs-and-runs in future years alongside the 31 year old men’s Premier Calendar race that took place over the same weekend. It will certainly be one of the first to be inked into our race programme for 2015!

Do you like it? Team Katusha is proud to launch a limited edition “matryoshka” water bottle, to be used for the very first time in the 2014 Paris-Roubaix on Sunday. This bottle features a colorful “Russian nesting doll” on the front and will only be used by Team Katusha in the upcoming Grand Tours and the remaining Monuments.  More about it here: http://www.katushateam.com/en/news/press/team-katusha-presents-special-matryoshka-bottle

Brilliant. Fans are going to love trying to get these roadside or from riders.

    Podcast Episode 5 – Just in time for Paris-Roubaix

    After too much coffee and – appropriately enough – a Belgian bun, I rattle though some choice morsels in episode 5 of the eternally delayed and somewhat infrequent Chasing Wheels podcast.

    - Paris-Roubaix, why will no one let me bet on Manuel Quinziato?

    - Speaking of betting, thank you Mr Alex Kristof for winning Milan-San Remo. Proof that if you pay attention you can place a good bet on cycling…

  9. Do Yorkshire’s Tour de France sums add up?

    Do Yorkshire’s Tour de France sums add up? I’m not certain the hope of their claims can be matched by the expectations of reality.

    The latest in the economic rollercoaster that is Welcome to Yorkshire’s ambitious Grand Depart is that they might have under-estimated an important tender resulting in a £2.3m shortfall.

    I don’t think this is the first or last time the project will find that their hopes are matched by the expectations of reality.

    A while back, I did some scribbling of numbers of rooms given accommodation was the…

  10. Europe is not the answer

    Europe is not the answer

    So, according to VeloNews, what cycling needs is more races in shrinking markets with shrinking capital investment, not new races in growing markets with growing capital investment:

    “With cycling pinched by recession across much of Europe, coupled with a growing fixation to “internationalize” cycling by shoehorning the sport into untapped markets, this weekend’s Italian romp should serve as a…
