WorldTour team bike guide 2019

The 2018 season saw each WorldTour team stick with the same bike brands they used in 2017. For 2019, nearly a quarter of the 18 teams have struck new bike sponsorship deals, with one Belgian manufacturer returning to the top tier of the sport for the first time since 2011. The biggest bike brands have a merry-go-round of team sponsorships in the WorldTour every few years. BMC Racing have morphed into the CCC Team and switch from BMC bikes to Giant. Team Sunweb, in turn, move from Giant to Cervé...

Kristoff: I hope UAE want me to win and not just lead out Gaviria

Alexander Kristoff admits that victory on the Champs-Elysées on the final stage of the Tour de France saved his 2018 season. The 31-year-old Norwegians first year with UAE Team Emirates had started off well enough and he won the Eschborn-Frankfurt for a record breaking fourth time but a lack of perfect form in the spring meant the Classics and build-up to the Tour were disappointing by his own high standards. Along with Dan Martin, Kristoff has pushed through some changes at UAE Team Emirates ...

Michael Creed: Fighting back against depression

Five years ago, Michael Creed hung up his wheels and ended his career as a professional cyclist. From there he moved seamlessly into team management - first with SmartStop, then the US Paralympic Cycling Team, before landing on his feet at Aevolo, where he now runs one of the most successful under-23 programmes on the US domestic scene. On the surface, his life reads like an untroubled tale of a young athlete living his dream before sidestepping into a well-suited career of mentorship. Under th...

Cofidis: The house that Vasseur rebuilt

The 2018 season wasnt without its hurdles for Cedric Vasseur and his Cofidis team but the Frenchman can be content with a number of highlights as he looks to solidify the French teams foundations ahead of the 2019 campaign. The teams year-on-year win tally was improved upon significantly, while the fractious relationship between the management and Nacer Bouhanni was sutured just enough to ensure that the sprinter turned his year around with a Vuelta a Espana stage win. The continued emergence ...

Philippa York analysis: Double trouble for Giro-Tour challengers

It took me about five stages of the Tour de France to discover that riding a rival Grand Tour beforehand wasnt a good idea for my level of ability. The first three-week race usually turned out fine, but the second was a gradual descent into the depths of tiredness that my team managers of the moment seemed not to notice, or refused to, and the experiment continued all too often. Its a predicament that cycling history tells us isnt rare at all, in fact its only the exceptionally talented who can...
