April 29th, ’14.  While our corner of the world slept just two nights ago, an Australian in Belgium was busy making history.  The 100th edition of Liege-Bastogne-Liege saw Orica GreenEdge's Simon Gerrans take his first ever Ardennes Classic win, but more than that it was Australia's first ever victory in La Doyenne.

 
Liege-Bastogne-Liege: Gerrans grabs glory

Liege-Bastogne-Liege preview: the spring classics curtain falls
Dan Martin 75April 26th, '14.  The spring classics are nearly done.  In just a few days attention will cease to be on racing in Belgium, the cobbled classics of Wevelgem and Flanders, the Ardennes classics of Amstel Gold and Wallonne; and eyes will shift to three weeks in Italy, three weeks in France and the stage races between.
 
Giro del Trentino stage 4: Bennett takes 12th overall while Evans secures win

April 26th, '14.  The four day Giro del Trentino came to a close last night, with Cadel Evans of BMC Racing securing the overall win.  The Australian finished 41 seconds behind stage winner Mikel Landa of Astana, keeping enough time to remain in the pink leader's jersey.

Amstel Gold Race: what they said . . .

Fleche Wallonne preview: Mur matters

April 21st, '14.  The second of the three hilly classics around this time of the year, Fleche Wallonne is traditionally regarded as the slightly smaller of the three; but that is not to say that it lacks prestige, for it carries that in spades.  The race has a pretty predictable feel to it - the winning move is virtually always on the final ascent of the infamous Mur de Huy - who will have the legs to make the winning move is far less certain.

 
Amstel Gold Race: Gilbert for three

Tour du Loir stage 3: Briggs on song while McCormick soldiers through

April 19th, '14.  The 208km marathon stage of the Tour du Loir et Cher E Provost between Savigny and Vendome was destined to be a painful one and so it proved with almost five hours in the saddle for the stage winner Graham Briggs; who was fastest in a three-man sprint at the end of the day.

Brabantse Pijl - La Fleche Brabanconne: Gilbert grabs victory

Gilbert 75April 17th, 14No sooner have one set of classics finished than another have begun.  The cobbled classics of Harelbeke, Wevelgem, Flanders and Roubaix - designed for the all out strong men - have made way for the hilly classics of Brabanconne, Amstel Gold, Wallonne and co; designed for the more climber friendly.
