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...

  1. @frank Have to admit, that was a total guess. Figured Lizzie might want to celebrate with a win, so stuck Vos in second. Had no clue about the other places. Couldn’t even find a link to the course profile, so didn’t know if it suited a sprinter like van d… »

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...

  1. @KW I’d partially agree about Thomas. He’s already shown that he’s a very promising classics rider. Himself and Boonen were making all the running in Paris-Roubaix this year, and he was still around at the end too. He had a podium in one of the earlier … »

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...

  3. I see Froome is getting some sympathy, but not much else, so I think it’s time to profess my Dirty Froome Love. The first time I saw Froome race was in the 2011 Vuelta when he did that storming TT that put him in the top 3. His subsequent experience in t… »

  4. @wiscot Will Saxo and Astana be able to drill it? Do we know if Bertie or Nibbles can handle the cobbles? Looking back at the 2010 stage, Bertie finished 1.13 down on the day. As people were pointing out earlier this year, Wiggo showing up at Paris-Roub… »

  5. And Abandy has abandoned. Looks like he has a hurty knee from the fall caused by that absolute pillock with a camera standing in the road…… »

  6. @LIIIXI I think it depends on the team. Gerrans was wearing a proper cap when being interviewed by Eurosport this morning. And if I remember correctly OPQS are doing their best to push proper caps too. »

  7. Nice job by Navardauskas, slapping camera phones out of silly spectators’ hands….. »

  1. After taking skin off knuckles with both the chain ring and the front mudguard (on my commuter bike), I have started using a standard spanner and my foot to loosen pedals. Arrange the crank so that the spanner is below the chainring, and also so that appl… »

  1. @Island Bike I noticed some slightly screwy behaviour yesterday while trying to access the site on my iPad. The latest comments section on the sidebar was about 12 hours out of date, and when I clicked though to the VSP for the women’s Fleche, there were … »
