Giro del Trentino stage 1: BMC on form in opening team time trial
GIRO DEL TRENTINO  foto DANIELE Mosna282April 23rd, '14.  Daniel Oss of BMC Racing pulled on the first leader’s jersey of this year’s Giro del Trentino after his team blasted around the 14.3km course of the opening team time trial to win stage one by 5 seconds.  
Amstel Gold Race: what they said . . .

April 21st, 2014.  So after gathering their collective breaths after the final climb of the Mur de Huy, what did the riders and team staff themselves have to say at the end of the 49th Amstel Gold Race?

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
April 21st, '14.  There was nothing that anyone could do, once Philippe Gilbert of BMC Racing decided he was going he was gone.  The Belgian former world champion attacked early on the final climb of the Cauberg and sailed away from all comers everywhere.
Amstel Gold Race preview: THE OUTSIDERS?

amstel-gold-race 75April 20th, 14It’s always a mighty difficult thing predicting a winner of a bike race.  Take the Amstel Gold Race for example.  There are some 200 riders there, all handpicked by their teams for this event, technically any of them could win.  

Tour du Loir stage 4: Guldhammer wins as Briggs keeps lead

April 20th, '14.  The penultimate stage of the Tour du Loir et Cher E Provost did live up to some of its expectations, with large time gaps between first and last place; but it was surprising to see that a large peloton still contested out the win on the difficult and testing course. 

Winston-Salem: Kiesanowski best placed Kiwi as Olds wins in sprint

April 19th, '14.  91km and nearly 5,000ft of climbing saw more than thirty of the original field drop out during the day’s racing, but for Ale Cipollini’s Shelley Olds the day was cause for celebration as she took just under two and a half hours to win the Winston-Salem Cycling Classic.

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.

Amstel Gold Race: preview for the climbers' chapter
amstel-gold-race 75April 18th, '14.  The first Ardennes classic of the year is on the horizon with the Amstel Gold Race coming up on Sunday.  In this first preview RoadCycling takes a look at the principle contenders for victory in the Netherlands' biggest one-day race.
Brabantse Pijl - La Fleche Brabanconne: Gilbert grabs victory

April 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.  

Paris-Roubaix: What they said . . .

April 15th, 14. So you’ve read the race report, here is an insight into what the riders thought of this year’s Queen of the Classics; from their own mouths!

Paris-Roubaix: Terpstra on top in the finale

April 14th, 14. After watching the Belgian classics this season one thing was certain, it was not a question of if Omega Pharma-Quick Step could get the big monument win, but when?  

Paris-Roubaix: The Opposition, Part 2

April 13th, 14 And then we come to the Slovakian.  As long as Peter Sagan is in a race tension will exist amongst the rest. Sure he didn’t have the 2014 spring campaign that we all expected he would.  

Paris-Roubaix: The opposition (Terpstra, Vanmarcke & Stybar)

April 11th, 14.  Alright then, basic rules of cycling on the World Tour: if you enter Paris-Roubaix as winner of the Tour of Flanders the week prior then your name is almost always top of the list in terms of favourites to win.  

Scheldeprijs: Kittel dominates the sprinters’ race

April 10th, 14. What was predictable about Scheldeprijs in its 102nd edition was the sprint finish at the end; what was substantially less predictable was the dominance that Marcel Kittel of GIANT-Shimano would display to take his third consecutive win in the race.  

Tour of Flanders: Cancellara crowned again

April 7th, 14. He’s done it!  For the second year in succession Trek Factory Racing’s Fabian Cancellara has won the Tour of Flanders.
