Did everyone got tired of seeing a nearly naked Marcel Kittel on the massage table for the Tour’s VSP page? I know I didn’t. Young Kennaugh will be sporting his British road race jersey and his proper shoe/sock pairing in this Vuelta. Get used to it. Ladies and gentleman we have a race. We have some Giro winners, we have some Tour...

First run in 2002, the GP de Plouay-Bretagne is part of the women’s UCI World Cup series.  It’s 4.5 laps totaling 121km. As usual, there is little information or publicity for yet another women’s UCI race. Here is a start list. Here is the official French website. And yes, Ms. Vos won the last two editions. We regret the lack of...

The race of the funny hat.Every team seems to have included one or two riders fresh off the Tour. One would either feel ruined or unbeatable a week after that slug fest, more than likely, ruined. I imagine there are a few riders dodging calls from their directors this week. Continue reading...

It has been many years (25!) since professional female cyclists have raced on the cobbles of the Champs Elysées. While running the Giro Donne concurrently with the Tour de France makes no sense to me, this Sunday’s women’s race does make sense. It should be the model for a Women’s Tour de France: the route, infrastructure, roadsi...

  1. Well I’ll be damned.  I never thought I’d see the day when I darkened the top step of the VSP podium.  I’m sure it will be fleeting, but I’ll enjoy it for now. In other race news, I went to the start of today’s Tour of California stage and scrutinized th… »

  1. @ChrisO I do the same thing as you and @GogglesPizano.  It’s most likely because it’s the Right Way to do it.  As I’ve told my VMH on more than one occasion, it’s not just My Way, it’s the Right Way. My Velominipper insists that she take her bidon with … »

  1. It pains me that Boonen isn’t on my list but I don’t think this is his year.  I hope that he proves me wrong, even if it trashes my VSP results. Fortune will play a role as it always does.  I’m told that Fortune favors the brave so everyone ought to pack… »

The Kemmelberg is a brute. In my opinion, its the hardest of the cobbled climbs in the Spring Classics; it has a high speed tarmac approach that saps the guns of their snap. The transition from tarmac to cobbles is awful, the stones are very badly laid throughout and if you don’t hit it just right, you’ll come to a standstill. The cobbl...
