Do you remember last year’s European Championships? In the women’s junior individual time trial, Lisa Morzenti (Italy) got the gold medal ahead of Alessa Vigilia, also Italian, who made it to the second place. One year later, none of them has been racing the Euro junior ITT, but that didn’t affect Italy’s chances of succeeding… …

After the inclusion of elite riders in the 2016 European Championships, U23 riders lost their only time of the year racing alone. It seems like UEC, the governing body of European cycling, has realized that was senseless, and U23 riders will have a separeted race this year. So who knows what can happen? Herning, Denmark, …

Every and every year we can see junior women’s cycling grow… but sadly girls are still far, far away from having as many international races as boys. 2017 women’s junior Nations Cup has only been composed of four competitions (two stage races and two one day races), but apart from that no other 1.1, 1.2, …

Esta Emakumeen Bira 2017 nos ha subido el listón muy alto: ha sido una edición sublime, tanto por la resolución emocionante del último día como por las experiencias vividas. Aquí os dejamos algunas de ellas. Día 1- Iurreta Tras …

4th in 2014, 2nd in 2015, 3rd in 2016… and 1st in 2017. It didn’t even look likely after a week of almost total domination by the Orica-Scott team, but Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (Cervélo-Bigla) was able to win the Emakumeen Bira with a massive effort on the main climb of the last stage: Jaizkibel. It was …

Gene Bates, Orica-Scott’s D.S., told us the first day of racing that they were ambitious, and their aim was to win several stages plus the general classification. So far, I think the whole team cannot be happier with the results. Maybe some riders are not feeling in top shape, but the power of the whole …

New stage winner, new GC leader, same team. Orica-Scott got it right again to win their second stage in a row at Emakumeen Bira, and their third win of the Basque week if we count Van Vleuten’s win at Durango-Durango. It was almost a copy/paste of what happened yesterday, with Katrin Garfoot in the role …
